Engage your imagination.
Imagine the moment of your birth is captured on video. Imagine a cameraman follows you every moment of your infancy, capturing every sight and sound from your first breath to your first step.
Then imagine your entire life — from the moment of birth until your death at age 70 — is captured on video.
At your funeral it is decided to replay the video. That, of course, would be impossible. The video would span seventy years.
However, your family decides to hire an editor who will capture the highlights of your life, reducing 70 years of sights and sounds to about seven minutes.
The video editor, however, doesn’t like you. And so he scans the 70-year-long video for the most offensive and abrasive moments of your life. He finds a moment when you swore, another instance when you lied, and yet another when you seemed to be stealing.
That moment when you raised your voice and hand in self-defense is carefully edited to make you appear to be the violent aggressor. The moments of kindness, goodness, and gentleness are all deleted
Upon completion the 7-minute video of your life makes you appear to be a hate-filled maniac who never had a kind word to say; a liar, cheater, and despicable specimen of humanity.
That is effectively how the predatory left presents the history of America and the Western world.
Historians will emphasize the Trail of Tears, when thousands of Indians were compelled to make the long trek to reservations on the western plains. They edit out the segment in which many of those making the trek were actually ferried on boats. They mention the high mortality rate along the trail, omitting the fact that the government assigned medical professionals to accompany the Indians.
The editors also fail to mention the high mortality rate that existed before the march westward and among the Indians who declined to participate. And, yes, they conveniently forget to mention that thousands of Indians not only did not participate, but their tribes still flourish east of the Mississippi.
The editors create a false reality by recalling a white man who allegedly distributed to Indians blankets tainted with the Small Pox virus. The editors fail to include any mention that Western innovation created the antidote for the virus and ultimately eradicated it.
The editors note that European expansion into the Americas brought other deadly contagious diseases. They ignore the fact that real historians believe syphilis was transmitted to Europe from the American natives. They also ignore the fact that the black death was transmitted to Europe from China via the Yersinia pestis bacterium. They never accuse the Chinese of genocide.
The editors recall with disdain the “massacre” of 1637 when English settlers descended upon Pequot Indians, killing men, women, and children. They ignore the reality that the battle was actually a confederated effort involving the English, Narragansett and Mohegan tribes who were putting an end to decades of bloody assaults from a tribe that could best be described as a terrorist cult.
The editors also give little mention to the earlier Indian Massacre of 1622 that killed 347 English settlers, including women and children.
The editors of the story of America completely ignore the fact that Western culture ended thousands of years of inter-tribal warfare; that the presence of the hated white man brought unprecedented peace and prosperity to the descendants of our native American ancestors.
Imagine history untainted by leftist bias and hate.
