Accuracy in Media

Good work by CNN to report on vandalism of monuments since Charlottesville’s mob violence last week.

By CNN’s count, eleven monuments of varying historical significance have been vandalized since the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, which claimed the life of one civilian.

Seven of the vandalized monuments highlight the role of the Confederacy in U.S. history, which is under scrutiny after the violence in Charlottesville.

    The destruction and defamation of statues, though some will support it now when it concerns the Confederacy, is only the beginning of yet another long and slippery slope. (Isn’t that always the case with Communists? First they tear down the crosses, then the monuments, then the flags, and replace it all with Lenin Soviet-style “art.”)

    I’d like to cite the following passages read into the Congressional record in 1963 on ‘Current Communist Goals’ (HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, January 10, 1963.)

    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

    The complete “Communist Goals” list makes for fascinating (though disturbing) reading. Many goals certainly explain today’s rampant social discord and corporate and government dysfunction. [URL: http://cns7prod.s3.amazonaws.com/attachments/communist_goals.pdf%5D
