A hugely problematic choice...



A hugely problematic choice by the ⁦@USNatArchives⁩ to alter historic images from the Women’s March critical of Trump #publichistory #museums #twitterstorians


Yet another example of how they want to literally change reality to suit their fucking nasty narrative of full on lies. As Goebbels once said... “The mission of women is to be beautiful and to bring children into the world.” Heh. Photoshop out those pink pussy hats, get back to the kitchen dammit... support the trumpianland to a 1000 year rule of glory.

Balderdash.

Based on the propaganda model of horror that they try to impose this is their authoritarian wet dream.


Even of the staff thought they were making a reasonable choice - can you imagine this happening even 4 years ago??? How quickly cultural shifts can happen. Terrifying. Literally. The National Archives are all about preserving history... that is their only job. Now they white wash so as not hurt the great leaders feelings????

Have you noticed that there is a nazi quote for EVERYTHING coming out of this administration... what does that tell you?!?! Hhhhmmm. No good can come from this. “In relation to the political decontamination of our public life, the government will embark upon a systematic campaign to restore the nation’s moral and material health. The whole educational system, theatre, film, literature, the press and broadcasting – all these will be used as a means to this end.” Adolf Hitler

1. Hallmark of 1984 was the alteration of historical documents


"We have always been at war with Oceania!"

"There was no criticism of Dear Leader in 2017!"

4. Thanks for posting.

I went to the site earlier and wrote a complaint, saying in effect that their job is not to kowtow to the anger of one man but to preserve the truth of our history, especially in the non-truth age of the past three years. The Women’s March of 2017 is the history of the people and must be preserved with relevant and truthful artifacts that have not been manipulated to spare the sensitivity of a president.

I encourage others to go to the site and post a complaint. It’s easy, and they need to hear how outraged people are at their partisan presentation of our history when their role is the nonpartisan preservation and presentation of history.

8. In Germany it is illegal to be a nazi .... she has more nazi freedoms in America

My Dad was a little too young for WW II but both he and my mother lost
family and friends in the war. BTW Trump according to wife #1 (Ivana)
kept a copy of Hitler's speeches by his bed.

10. Yeah, I heard Germany doesn't take kindly to Nazis

Too bad. She should still go to the country that created Nazis and see how warmly she is greeted.

13. No reason to doubt Ivana, and it is in keeping. Stephen Miller probably has the entire boxed set.

Autographed collectors edition? Seriously, we are falling at a rapid clip and have to take America back. Ironic how Drumpf's cult feels the same way. I really don't care, Do U?

15. When Trump was asked about having Hitler's writings in his bedroom his answer was

just as disconcerting because he said, "If I had them I didn't read them."

America fought a war against the Nazis and supposedly won.

Yet here they are in Charlottesville marching to "take back America".

When did the Nazis have America?

KKK Conservative boasting:

“We killed six million Jews the last time,” he answered. “Eleven million is nothing.”

12. Looks like we're going to have to deal with these sick fucks sooner or later.

My Dad would be OK with that, having fought against Nazi evil in WWII.

Yet there are still Confederates all over the place. America failed to finish both those wars.
