George Washington University Drops U.S. History Requirement — for History Majors!
That a University bearing the name of our first President, George Washington, should drop the requirement to study US History for, of all people, history majors is absurd. But the Cultural Marxists who have taken control of most major universities are determined to wipe out Western Culture, and in particular American Culture. They don’t even hide this desire any more, as the spread of anti-white propaganda floods out of the Ivory Towers.
PJ Media, in an article tells us this:
“I think an important change in the history major has been to make our major actually reflect the field of history the way that historians study it now,” Denver Brunsman, an associate professor of history and director of undergraduate services for the department, told the Hatchet. “In the past — and I think our old standards reflected this — it was very common to have students take a class in American history, in European history and maybe, just maybe, something else, another part of the world.”
While a focus on other countries is laudable, it is important for students to understand their historical and intellectual heritage. If the history department were to become stiflingly closed to studying other regions of the world, that would indeed be a problem. But requiring a general knowledge of America’s roots (and those include Europe’s history) is natural and should be expected, especially of history majors.
Rather, this move seems to fit with the trend of rejecting the study of Western heritage as somehow oppressive and close-minded. Indeed, students at Yale University recently petitioned for the removal of a class because studying “Major English Poets” would create “a culture that is especially hostile to students of color.” Stanford University students rejected a petition for a Western heritage course in April. The University of Wisconsin-Stout even removed historical paintings because they might traumatize students.
This is all a matter of destroying our culture and heritage. It is the Cultural Marxists hard at work turning us into a homogeneous blob of dumbed down, subservient worker bees. They do not desire to reach ever higher goals for the masses, but the least common denominator that can be controlled by them, the Elite.
Since the Long March through the institutions began, there has been a concerted effort, particularly in Academia, to destroy the culture and heritage of the United States and all Western nations. They have been very effective, as they have placed their “true believers’ within the universities, repeating their mantra over, and over, again, with many voices from within the “hallowed halls” speaking with one voice. As Joseph Goebbels believed, and used to control the German population; repeat something often enough, and it will become truth.
It is now time to call BS to the ridiculous mantra coming out of the Ivory Towers. Having a Phd. after your name is meaningless today. The Mainstream Media may gloat over your credentials and call you “expert”, but the “Unwashed masses”, as those conceited “experts” like to call us, see through your game. You wish to destroy what we hold sacred, our heritage and culture. The mask has been ripped off, and we see you for what you are. Your Long March has ended.
