“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” ― George Orwell, 1984
The current Communist insurgency (BLM & ANTIFA on behalf of Democrats and the cabal) is attempting to deracinate (cut off from one's history) the nation by re-writing history, destroying/removing statues and wanton other destruction. This is a Marxist ideal - people cut off from their history are easier to control.
