With Garbage LGBT ‘Scholarship’, Colonial
Williamsburg Destroys Its Reason For Existing

Original Article

Posted By: AltaD, 6/16/2022 1:21:30 PM

Colonial Williamsburg is the world’s largest living museum, and a place visited and loved by many conservatives, traditionalists, homeschoolers, and classical education devotees. Williamsburg is beloved precisely because, for decades, it has faithfully depicted the founding culture of America in a meticulously recreated, and often re-enacted, Revolutionary-era capital. This depiction included America’s undeniably traditional, Western, largely Judeo-Christian roots. But now Williamsburg has gone woke. In doing so, its leadership and staff are displaying conspicuous enmity toward the highly reasoned position held by America’s founders—a position at odds with today’s LGBT dogma. It’s not merely during Pride month, which Williamsburg now celebrates. Colonial Williamsburg has established an ongoing Gender

I have been to Williamsburg three or four times, but not for at least 30 years now. I used to live not too far from there, and it was wonderful to stand in the House of Burgesses where Patrick Henry said, "Give me Liberty, or give me death" And my parents lived in the same county that Mr. Henry lived in, not far from many other of our Founding Fathers' homes. The infection of this great living history museum by these insane, hateful, destructive LIARS is really sad. They are, as usual, destroying our history, and putting up a bunch of LIES. Crazy people like "transgender" would be put in an insane asylum in those days. Too bad we aren't so smart today. We let them run loose and actually get jobs where they wreck things, and sell their insanity to children.

Re #4, from memory, Williamsburg was largely in bad physical shape in the 1920s or 30s, IIRC, and some history minded folks managed to get one of the Rockefellers to put up the money to buy it and put it on the road to restoration as a living museum. I'm not at all sure of the current status, probably some sort of a foundation, no idea if taxpayer dollars are involved, but they usually are at some point. In any case, these sorts of foundations get infiltrated by the crazy, extreme leftists and this is the result. Colleges teach these insane things to brainwashed young people, and these now infected loons go out and spread the lies as their 'gospel'. Letting these people into the colleges was a serious, serious mistake.

I retired from Colonial Williamsburg 10 years ago and there was only one other conservative there. At that time, they were working with the UN on a slavery initiative to justify reparations and the programming has gotten even more political since then. I remember back when it was a a place that celebrated the great accomplishments of the colonists and made one proud to be the latest of their line. CW should be highlighting the positive, acknowledging the negative, and keeping a balance between the two. The whole point is to experience life from the point of view of a colonist, not of some blue-haired, nose-ringed, brainwashed twit. Otherwise, what is the point?

It is incredible how insidious and widespread this "woke" perversity has become. Anyone that wants to be a LBGTXXX, our whatever, is free to do so. I just don't understand why good people go along with having this perversity forced upon them. Making up revisionist history should not be tolerated. It should be challenged and fact checked. It also goes against our Judeo Christian history. I suspect "wokesters" are much less likely to stand up to defend this country in event of a serious threat or war. All the illegal immigrations flooding into this country are not coming for any reasons related to being woke. I would bet the vast majority would be hostile to any of the wokeness if it was forced upon them. So why does wokeness get such much coverage and space in the public square? It is only thru the collaboration between business, big tech media platforms, and the news media that they get so much coverage with little to no pushback from any of them. It is almost as if the more perverse you are the more you are celebrated. Let face a brutal fact- Wokeness is the antithesis of masculinity. This generation and every one before it has been up to the challenge to defend our country against any threats, foreign or domestic. Well, we got the foreign defense side of it handled. We are truly being subverted from within though. I don't see how we can survive a serious threat or attack when wokeness becomes the norm in this country. When complete perversity is normalized amongst our society we will be a much weaker country because of it and would put our national defense at great risk from the numerous countries/societies that hate us.

Democrats are wrecking our history and doing so at a fast pace. I cannot believe there are sane people in these institutions who will not object. Surely, there is one historian who loves and respects the truth about our history and who we are and how we became to be Americans. The lack of courage is especially horrific because this leftist nonsense cuts at the very heart of our foundation. Democrats want to destroy our history and rewrite some politically correct but false tale that they manufacture out of thin air, rainbow colored, no doubt. If we don’t push back hard, we are going to wake up one morning and find ourselves living a LGBT+ existence whether we like it or not. We will have been cancelled and this group of misfits and weirdos will be the ones who will police our every utterance and determine if we work, shop, and live. I know it sounds unrealistic, but my goodness, it appears every institution, company, government agency has pledged allegiance to these depraved activists. If I have learned anything from witnessing our downward spiral, it is that people of conviction and courage are few and far between. The fact that Americans could be so easily cowed is shocking. I believed we were made of sterner stuff and would resist such an attack on the moral fiber of this nation. Clearly, I was wrong. I believe that if Americans actually knew the truth about this community, it would make a huge difference. This is not a group of people who are all sweetness and light. They live a very dark existence and suffer horrifically from the results of their sexual activities both physically and psychologically. We never hear a negative word about the wanton promiscuity, the sexually transmitted diseases that run rampant, the domestic abuse, or the lives that are ruined in an attempt to become who they were never intended to be. Maybe we should bring that side of their lives out of the closet. I know that we are going down a very dark and dangerous path when we embrace hedonism whether it be straight, gay, or trans, etc. This is not the lifestyle we want to celebrate and we certainly do not want to be made to participate in it in any way. The relentless pressure and bullying the LGBT+ community puts on every aspect of our lives must stop. All these people who are bowing down to this travesty are cowards and fools who do not understand at all what they are embracing. This is evil and each time they force it down our throats in some way, they prove how wretched and pathetic they are.

The left's goal is to destroy America as founded and build a utopian Marist society on its ashes. If America is to survive, the left must be ripped root and branch from our schools, libraries, museums, businesses, and entertainment.

Well, THEY ruined Disney. Parents can no longer take their Children to a "Friendly Family" place to vacation. Now they cater to Gays, have "Gay Week and Pride Week" and probably more weeks to honor the "Woke Agenda" that they're trying to spread faster than a Wildfire! I'm sad to now hear of Colonial Williamsburg is falling for that Agenda as well. Years ago We had a Family Gathering in Williamsburg and spent a couple Days discovering Colonial Buildings, having meals in their Colonial Homes and learning how things were done back in the Day. We had Four Generations in our group and everyone love their time there. So , I hate that a lot of Families will now shy away from going there. Also, I agree with the Author of this Article that Those who are now Woke would probably NOT put themselves out to defend our Country if we were attacked. I never thought I would see that in my Lifetime (I'm 81). Certainly, things have NOT changed for the Better in our Country!

Apropos all the comments bemoaning the takeover of Colonial Williamsburg by the "wokerati" and other assorted left-wing deviants, all anyone needs to know--and always remember--is that, "any organization not explicitly right-wing will become left-wing over time." See, Conquest's Second Law of Politics, often attributed to British journalist John O'Sullivan. Of more recent vintage, refer to Theodore Beale, a/k/a Vox Day, whose two seminal works, "SJW'S Always Lie," and "SJW's Always Double Down" explains how left-wing Social Justice Warriors infiltrate every organization. Basically, once you let one of them in, they bring in more and more of their like-minded degenerates until they become a majority, at which time, the original organization is left for dead. The moral of the story is, if you want your company, group or organization to last, never, ever bring in any SJW's.
