(Tea Party PAC) – CNN is a news network that has crossed the threshold of absurdity with increasing frequency over the years, but nothing seems to take the cake quite like its programming in 2020. From trying to pass off violent rioting as “fiery, but mostly peaceful protesting,” all the way to mocking Christians and white people for supporting Trump, CNN has made it clear they are more than happy to be a left-wing propaganda machine.
While you might think they’ve reached the threshold of ridiculousness this year, they’ve managed to find a way to kick things up a few notches. The network aired a photograph of former Vice President Joe Biden with his young son, who just so happened to be rocking a Washington Redskins hat.
And they photoshopped the logo out of the picture.
No joke. They really did this.
Via Fox News:
The Democratic nominee and former vice president initially shared the photo in June to commemorate Father’s Day.
However, when CNN featured the photograph in its Monday night special “Fight for the White House: Joe Biden’s Long Journey,” the Redskins logo was removed from the hat.
CNN did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
In July, the Washington Football Team announced it would be retiring the nickname “Redskins” which had long been criticized as being offensive to Native Americans.
The franchise, which will be called the Washington Football Team during the 2020 NFL season, was facing both corporate and public pressure to change its name after 87 years amid the cultural shift following the death of George Floyd.
How lame can you get? The Washington Football Team? Seriously? This, ladies and gentlemen, is the inevitable result of political correctness when it is allowed to just completely and totally run amok in our culture.
Anyway, getting back to this photograph. This is photoshopping business is super spooky. It’s a literal attempt to censor history, like something you’d see in an Orwellian novel. If you think this is a minor deal, you’re not really thinking through the logical applications of what has been done.
Doing this allows them to sanitize our history, to change it and manipulate it so that folks who don’t know any better will buy the new narrative. If they can do it with this, they can certainly do it with other photographs and pieces of history.
Revisionism has already been used as a tool for brainwashing entire generations of students against the greatest nation in the world. Just imagine the power these same folks have now with technology like photoshop? It’s a terrifying thought.
We need to preserve our history at all costs. Warts and all. History is to serve as a teaching tool to help us understand ourselves, an instructor of wisdom to prevent us from making foolish, sinful mistakes of the past all over again. When it is censored or cleansed to avoid offending someone, you strip history of its purpose.
