This is Turning Into a Proof of Ignorance Exercise

Calls to take down a statue of Abraham Lincoln in Boston's Park Square, between the Park Plaza and the Transportation Building, are growing. The statue of President Lincoln, the Great Empancipator, is depicted with a slave on his knees.

A petition to remove the statue was spearheaded by an African American man from Boston named Tory Bullock who says he's been seeing the statue since he was a kid.

"It says that it's a statue that's supposed to represent freedom. But, to me, it represents submissiveness," Bullock said. "It represents: 'Know your place, because that's where you belong.'
I could have sworn it represented thankfulness. Along with the vandalism of the black 54th Massachusetts regiment, the left's campaign to produce historical ignorance seems to have worked.

With no history, nothing is in perspective, everything is just as the authorities and their lickspittle lackeys the mainstream media says it is. With no history, everything is new and unique, because then no one can "compare and contrast" similar events in the past, that bete noir of Leftists when they don't have a counter argument, derided by them as "whataboutism"
Everything would run more smoothly if people would just forget we've been down this trail before, and an ignorance of history is an important element of that forgetting.
