The “Where does it end?” letter in your April 27 issue highlights what many feel but get shouted down by those who would silence dissent or opinions that don’t agree with their own.
The movement and demands to change names of buildings or whatever else is reminiscent of and parallels actions by the Taliban in Afghanistan when they banned all other religions and destroyed all vestiges of the nation’s history regarding religious artifacts and monuments…at least of that history and religion they didn’t agree with and instituted rules and standards more to their liking.
The anti-American, pro-bigotry left in this country is little different in erasing our history — both good and bad history — in such tactics in an attempt to establish an authoritarian, socialist utopia. Intolerance is their guiding principle and ideology. They’re afraid of honest debate and the free exchange of ideas as it exposes their intellectual bankruptcy.
We need our history, warts and all. This is the USA. We celebrate our successes and our liberties and we own our mistakes so as to learn from them. The truth should win out — not a sick, bigoted and intolerant version championed by the political left.
