Merry New Year.
So, it seems that the liberal, progressive effort to cleanse our history of historical context has taken us to the point where we are now going to rewrite the American classic piece of literature: “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn”. In order to make liberals feel good about themselves, they have consigned themselves to revising Twain’s masterpiece by a simple process of “Find and Replace”.
Yes, I report the news you already know that Twain’s work will be republished with this progressive edit. OK, so I never posted about the edit of “Blazing Saddles” having the same word edited out for television viewers regardless of the fact that the use of the word in the film was to highlight the ignorance of racial discrimination. Just the same, I probably should have. If more Americans stood on their laurels regarding the use of this particular word in art as progressives do for the use of Christian symbols covered in ants, feces and semen, then we might not find ourselves wondering how we have come to editing one of the most acclaimed pieces of Americana.
Therefore, I present a simple challenge: coherently explain to me why the use of this particular word is acceptable for rap/hip-hop artists, certain film actors, and certain comedians (especially when the word is not used in any contextual manner in these examples), but not for Twain’s book.
