"Laura Ingalls Wilder's name is set to be removed from a major children's book award after concerns were raised about the "Little House on the Prairie" author's depiction of certain races in the early-to-mid 20th century..."

Didn't they already get him? And the To Kill a Mockingbird lady too, I think.

But Mark Twain, yeah...that's a puzzler. [huh] I guess he was a Nazi before there were Nazis. Or something...

Mark Twain used the word "nigger" in his books and for the left that's unforgiveable even though Mark Twain's use of the word in his works helped set society on such a course that the use of that word slipped from the vernacular.

It is of no small coincidence that Twain's books had a renaissance in the 1960's and 1970's as they were remade into films that very neatly tied into the civil rights movement.

Now these people are little more than Pavlovian dogs who lose their minds at the sight of the word and they're incapable of understanding the context of the times in which Twain authored his works.

It's their loss.

Can we apply modern lenses to all books of classical literature? Yes, we can! I swear every day is more like a fucked up cross between Demolition Man and 1984.

Good Lord! :roll:

Her books are based on her life and that is how life was at that time. It was what it was.

I still have her entire series (in a set) that I've had since I was... maybe 8 or so? It's one of the very few things I have from my childhood that I've just never considered parting with. It wasn't that many years ago that I read most of them again. :lol: Nostalgia is a good thing now and then.

Newsflash. If we started doing this to anyone who ever had a racist, sexist, or outdated thought, every single one of our grandparents, parents, and yes, even you, would be banned.

Someone needs to round up all these social justice warriors.
If only there was some means of containing them all, like a... concentration camp?!

I'd rather disperse them instead of concentrating them where their insanity can fester and feed upon itself.

Like maybe we could randomly airdrop them into the middle of the Pacific? 8)

I thought that thread was more warning than complaint though.

What I mean is, stick to book burning lefties. You're not going to win if it comes to an actual fight.

To me that thread was more trying to normalize and justify violence against folks like me--left-wing types.
