A Musing About the Past

Well, watching videos on speakers of all types and a thought came to my mind while watching a college leftist ask a question to Dinesh D’Souza.

The student asked, why should we care what the democratic party had done in the past?  Referring to the fact it was the democratic party which upheld slavery, opposed blacks getting voting rights, forming the KKK, among other things.

I wondered something, this young man seemed to have no problem with wiping from history what the party had done.  Oh, the party’s changed, they are no longer that type of group one might say.  They are ‘champions’ of the oppressed (questionable at best). 

But the question which came to me as this student was speaking was this, does he think whites should continue to pay reprimands over slavery?

According to his own question, it shouldn’t really matter to much anymore, after all, its in the past, why should we care?

And here we see the hypocrisy of the left.  It only matters when it fits their narrative.  The past of the democratic party doesn’t fit the narrative, after all, to them the democrats are the heroes.  They are the ones riding in on the white horse to save the oppressed.

But slavery by whites, that fits their narrative, so it can stay.

Those who do not know the past, are doomed to repeat it.  It appears the democrats are doomed to repeating history, which isn’t a good thing.
