MOVING INTO OUR CURRENT TIME FRAME, for those who insist on being politically correct and have a need to avoid treading on the toes of societal sensitivity -- which seem to become more sensitive each day -- then let's do the job right. Let's purify our national heritage to cleanse it of all our sinful transgressions of the past.

First, petition members of Congress to pass a law requiring the destruction of the presidents' faces at Mount Rushmore, South Dakota. You may also want to have the Confederate memorial at Stone Mountain, Georgia, destroyed and a statue of Abraham Lincoln removed from the rotunda of the capitol building in Washington, D. C.

Why?

Because the sculptor who carved those three works, Gutzon Borglum, was a racist and white supremacist who believed in segregation. Not only was he an active member of the Ku Klux Klan in Georgia in the 1930s and '40s, serving on a number of planning and organizational committees, Borglum also was the Grand Dragon of the Klan in that state.
Note that Borglum only worked on the Confederate memorial at Stone Mountain during the height of Klan resurgence in the 1920s. He was the first of three chief carvers who, after many delays and over several decades, supervised sculpting. Roy Faulkner, who had worked under Walter Hancock, finally finished the figures on the mountain in the 1960s.

Next, let's change the name of one of the largest military bases of its kind in the world -- Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Those who have bothered to read a good history book about the Civil War will know that Confederate General Braxton Bragg commanded the Army of Tennessee. There are many others, such as Fort Gordon, Georgia, and Fort Hood, Texas, named for Confederate General Sam Hood who led his troops on the ill-fated charge up Little Round Top at Gettysburg.

Also, plan on having Grant's Tomb removed. Let's start with Grant's infamous General Order 11, which called for the removal of all Jews within 50 miles of his command post. And even though Robert E. Lee, who was actually opposed to slavery, freed some of his few slaves before the Civil War began and the rest shortly afterward, Grant kept his slaves even after the war had ended.-----
A TRAVESTY OF HISTORY
The Battle of Fort Pillow is often mentioned as a blight on Forrest's record, and it
.... Today's Ku Klux Klan enjoys a well-deserved reputation as a bigoted, violent
.... of the largest military bases of its kind in the world -- Fort Bragg, North Carolina

We were taught there are three heavens: the Celestial Kingdom, Terrestrial Kingdom, and Telestial Kingdom. The Celestial is the highest, where God and the ones who followed his law reside. The Terrestrial is the middle, where people who followed the Law of Moses reside. The Telestial is the lowest, where the ones who followed carnal law reside.

We were taught that God created multiple worlds and each world has people living on it. We also believe that multiple Gods exist but each has their own universe. We are only subject to our God and if we obtain the highest level of heaven we can become gods ourselves.

Jimmy Carter was a very influential Evangelical Born Again Christian. He taught us all how bad Democrats are, even though he was nothing like the hideous Vietnam Thug Lyndon B Johnson.

Now we have preacher Obama who tops them all for ugliness and incompetence.

Oh God, another religious freak.

Barton holds no formal credentials in history or law, and scholars dispute the accuracy and integrity of his assertions about history, accusing him of practicing misleading historical revisionism, "pseudoscholarship" and "outright falsehoods".

According to the New York Times, "many professional historians dismiss Mr. Barton, whose academic degree is in Christian Education from Oral Roberts University, as a biased amateur who cherry-picks quotes from history and the Bible."

We looked up every citation Barton said was from the Bible, but not one of them checked out. Moreover, the Constitution as written in 1787 has no mention of God or religion except to prohibit a religious test for office. The First Amendment does address religion.

But historians say Barton is flat-out wrong in his facts and conclusion. Congress never published or paid a dime for the 1782 Bible. It was printed and paid for by Philadelphia printer Robert Aitken. At Aitken's request, Congress agreed to have its chaplains check the Bible for accuracy. It was not, historians say, a government promotion of religion.

Seeking his endorsement are politicians including Tea Party favorite Ted Cruz of Texas and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who's mentioned as a possible running mate for Mitt Romney. Newt Gingrich is a fan. So is Mike Huckabee.

It figures.

Rev. Wright is a good American who hates racist filth like you. I agree with him.

If there was a Hell, you would belong there, along with your fellow far-Right fascist loons.

Wow, the Founders were generally religious men...what a surprise, what an amazing freakin' historical discovery! LOL

We're not living in their times anymore, Barton. We're not going to make our country into a Christian Saudi Arabia or Iran, either.

GFY, preacherman.

Excellent post. What these people are most afraid of is facts, since they generally make up their own.

While that was an excellent post, I disagree that republicans are afraid of facts. Facts don't make any difference to them. They completely ignore anything that doesn't push their agenda. That is why they can be for Romney care, demanding people pay extra to insurance companies, then be completely against it when it is renamed Obama care.

Even worse:

As if the Tea Party hasn’t butchered American history enough since their creation, the Tea Party in Tennessee is demanding the immediate removal of any mention of slavery as it applies to the Founding Fathers because they want schools clean up their image and teach students “the truth about America.” Tennessee now wants to join Texas in changing American history as it is presented in textbooks and how it is taught by teachers in schools.

During the news conference more than two dozen Tea Party activists handed out material that said, "Neglect and outright ill will have distorted the teaching of the history and character of the United States. We seek to compel the teaching of students in Tennessee the truth regarding the history of our nation and the nature of its government."

And that further teaching would also include that "the Constitution created a Republic, not a Democracy."

The group demanded, as they had in January of last year, that Tennessee lawmakers change state laws governing school curricula. The group called for textbook selection criteria to include: "No portrayal of minority experience in the history which actually occurred shall obscure the experience or contributions of the Founding Fathers, or the majority of citizens, including those who reached positions of leadership."
