“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” George Orwell
In what is eerily evocative of a Stalinist purge of history, all of American history is being scrubbed by the new fascists. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are now in the cross hairs.
It doesn’t matter to the fascists if it isn’t a Confederate flag. It is a design based on geometric forms that represent the “Crossroads of the World.” But even if they were, it is wrong to remove them.
This is Red Bill de Blasio’s NY. His MTA banned my ads, so is this surprising?
MTA will remake tiles that look like Confederate flags in station
In the wake of last weekend’s white-power unrest in Virginia over a Confederate monument, the MTA has decided to remake a series of tile mosaics in the Times Square subway station that look eerily like Confederate flags.
The Post found in 2015 that the designs of rectangular squares with blue crosses on a red background have been a part of the Times Square station décor for more than than 90 years.
Civil War historian Dr. David Jackowe claims the tiles honor the late New York Times head Adolph S. Ochs, a Southerner. He also believes Ochs was buried with a Confederate flag.
The MTA — which refused to say if their action to finally remove the tiles is linked to the events in Charlottesville — has consistently disputed that the mosaics are actually Confederate flags or that they honor Ochs.
MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz said they are meant to honor Times Square’s nickname.
“These are not Confederate flags, it is a design based on geometric forms that represent the ‘Crossroads of the World’ and to avoid absolutely any confusion, we will modify them to make that absolutely crystal clear,” Ortiz said.
Ortiz declined to say exactly how the MTA plans to modify the tiles or when the changes will happen.
