Atticus Finch & Harper Lee weep… OR
How To REALLY Kill A Mockingbird.
In the old days the people who did not want you to be able to remember your history just burned all the books that they deemed egregious.
A notorious “N-word” group did THAT a lot in the 1930s in Germany.
NOTE from AgentPierce: “Books” are the only targets of these malicious Historical Revisionists. They are also coming after websites… such as Carolina PlottHound. I’ll be telling you all about that very soon.
Gosh, we sure would not want to make any little child “uncomfortable” by reading a book. Because you know, life in general is NEVER uncomfortable!
Tear down the statues, destroy the history, ban the books, dis-respect the flag, belittle law enforcement, teach the propaganda, destroy pride, throw out Christianity, encourage victimhood: these are the actions that the majority of people in America have allowed the minority to get away with for too long.
It is this sort of snowflake political correctness that drove 63 million Americans to vote for Trump.
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. ~ George Santayana, 1863 -1952, philosopher, essayist, poet and novelist.

Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” was removed from a Mississippi school district lesson plan because the book’s language made some people feel uneasy.
Administrators at the Biloxi School District announced early this week they were pulling the novel from the 8th-grade curriculum, saying they received complaints that some of the book’s language “makes people uncomfortable.”
The Sun Herald reported that the book was pulled from the lesson plan because the novel contained “the N word.”
A message on the school’s website says “To Kill A Mockingbird” teaches students that compassion and empathy don’t depend upon race or education.
School board vice president Kenny Holloway says other books can teach the same lessons.
The novel, published in 1960, chronicled the adventures of Jean Louise Finch aka Scout and her brother Jeremy aka Jem and the racial inequality that existed in their small Alabama town. The book followed a court case their father, Atticus, was involved in.
The book was adapted into a movie in 1962, starring Gregory Peck, who won an Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Atticus Finch.
The Sun Herald reported the novel was listed at No. 21 on the American Library Association’s most “banned or challenged books list in the last decade.”
