This week, Progressive-Socialists made yet another move towards their ultimate goal of banning classic novels that show our youth, what life was like in the early years of the United States.
A unanimous decision this past Saturday to remove Laura Ingalls’ Wilder’s name from a major children’s book award was made by the Board of Association for Library Services to Children, which is a division of the American Library Association. The Hill reported that the initiative received…
“a standing ovation by the audience in attendance.”
The Association said that they decided to remove Wilder’s name from the award because her works include
“expressions of stereotypical attitudes inconsistent with ALSC’s core values.”

In 1954, Laura Ingalls Wilder was the first author to receive the once distinguished award for her Little House on the Prairie series, but now Progressive’s have once again worked to do what Communist and Fascist countries have done for years…..censor and destroy books that teach children their history, and re-write that history, so that it puts Progressive ideology in its place. Laura Ingalls’ Wilder said that her series…
“represented a whole period of American history.”

Now, the Library Association has decided that Wilder’s name was to be replaced with the nondescript title..
“Children’s Literature Legacy Award.”
Therefore, now it appears that any writings and stories from America’s past will now be held to the Progressive’s political correctness standards of today. For all stories that describe slavery, mistreatment of the Indians, or any other Progressive standards, it will be summarily be banned.
Another example is where Mark Twain’s novel “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” which was determined to be inappropriate and summarily banned across the country from libraries and schools. Also, Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice” was anti-Semitic, and Ernest Hemingway’s books for being offensive towards homosexuals. Next, will be books that embrace Christian values, show women as housewives, blacks as struggling for rights, or any other number of norms that Progressive’s want to target and erase from the existence of mankind be at risk….at least in thought or mind. It can even be seen in the left’s proclaimed icon, Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.. Start looking at articles that are written by the Progressives, and Mainstream Media. The coverage of his legacy excludes his faith, and even eliminates the title Reverend at the beginning.

Progressive’s have embraced Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. as one of their own, but they have shown themselves to be incredibly uncomfortable with his talk of God. Therefore, they simply ignore and remove all aspects of his faith from their talk, and embracement of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., so they just call him Martin Luther King Jr..
Fundamentally, Democrats and their Progressive-Socialist and Communist ideological intentions require the erradication of all things that oppose the Elitist rule over a ‘Collective America’. They need to eliminate any history that would make ‘We the People’ less pliable and moldable into a submissive following for the ruling Elitist class. Socialist and Communist ideologies embrace the elimination of religion, yet instead, replace it with the people’s devotion to government rule.
Fortunately, today we have a President who is implementing the kind of change that returns America back to the rule of ‘We the People’, and away from the ‘rule of government. A move that returns our nation back to the founding principles that our Founding Fathers originally intended, and the primary reason that President Trump is so despised by the Progressive Democrats. After all, the Democrats, over the years, have nudged our nation ever-closer to their divided communist utopia of the have’s at the top (Elitist Political Ruling Class), and the majority of American’s, or have not’s at the bottom (Poor Subjective Ruled Over Class).
