The radical Left’s Cultural Revolution continues apace.
In Virginia, they pulled down a statue of Robert E. Lee, cut it into pieces and wanted to remove a historic time capsule from 1887 in it’s base and replace it.
And Virginia Democrats replace history with items in a new time capsule that are beyond cringeworthy.
Leftists are not only in a hurry to erase history, but replace it with their own “woke” version.
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam announced the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue and the inclusion of contemporary artifacts for a new time capsule.
The Governor’s crew couldn’t find the historic time capsule for better or worse.
But that didn’t stop their plans to include the Left’s new history.
And the items included in the new time capsule are maximum cringe.
From The Daily Wire:
“The new time capsule will be filled with dozens of new items, including a Black Lives Matter sticker and a CDC vaccination record card donated by the Virginia Department of Health…At the request of the governor’s office, the new capsule will also include a photo of Virginia State Police in Washington, D.C., during the January 6, 2021 riot. The state’s police were deployed at the time to help patrol the capital…Other items that will be included: An expired COVID-19 vaccine vial, an LGBT pride pin, prayer beads from a woman who died of COVID-19, a collection of poems from middle school students about the pandemic, an election officer’s badge from 2020, and a video from an interfaith healing and unity event.”
It’s ironic that Northam is the one overseeing installation of the Left’s new “historic” time capsule with items from a movement for “racial justice” when he admitted to appearing in his medical school yearbook either dressed in blackface or a KKK hood.
That scandal would’ve ended his career if he weren’t a Democrat and the next two Democrats in the line of succession hadn’t had their own ugly scandals.
Northam said in a statement:
“This monument and its time capsule reflected Virginia in 1890—and it’s time to remove both, so that our public spaces better reflect who we are as a people in 2021…The past 18 months have seen historic change, from the pandemic to protests for racial justice that led to the removal of these monuments to a lost cause.”
Of course, Northam didn’t mention that the protests led to countless riots, dozens dead, and over $2 billion in property damage.
Distractions about statues have taken away from the policy failures of Democrats.
Instead of running on issues, they’re running on social chaos, and now they’re bottling it in a time capsule.
