The Ultimate Stupid

The Ultimate Stupid

A TV station in Virginia removed a veteran sportscaster from covering a basketball game, Robert Lee, because they were afraid his name would “offend” some viewers.

There is a movement to ban the movie Gone with the Wind, because of the racist attitudes —historically accurate, heinous attitudes—portrayed in the Academy Award-winning film (for which Hattie McDaniel won the first Oscar ever for an African-American actor).

Where does all this stupidity end? I’ll tell you: With no child understanding history and therefore unable to learn from it.

Protestant Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) on the Nazis:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

And when does Brown University change its name from that of the most horrid, and largest, slave trading family in the history of the country? When do they stop pontificating and start practicing what they preach for the rest of us?
