In San Francisco, protestors tore down a statue of Ulysses S. Grant, our famed general (and later president) who helped defeat the Confederacy, (Newsweek). After Grant’s death, Fredrick Douglas said, “To him, more than to any other man, the Negro owes his enfranchisement” (RedState). Rich Lowry: “What idiots. I guess they’re going to come for Sherman next” (Twitter). Junipero Serra is down as well (Twitter). In New York, the Teddy Roosevelt statue in front of the Museum of Natural History is being removed (NYPost) In Minneapolis: Both Harper Lee books and Mark Twain books are banned from Minneapolis public schools—and no, the teachers were not consulted in the decision (Telegraph). Monmouth University is renaming Woodrow Wilson building (NYTimes). Washington Post has their eye on the Redskins (WPost) Noah Rothman: Conservatives saw all this coming, and they were relentlessly mocked for it. But they were right, and their foresight was based on the fullest understanding of the arguments that America’s historical revisionists tacitly endorsed but never scrutinized…. When Donald Trump wondered whether it would be “George Washington next week” and “Thomas Jefferson the week after,” he was treated to haughty and dismissive dispatches in the mainstream press explaining why these Founders were more than just their proximity to slavery (Commentary).
Teddy Roosevelt, Ulysses S. Grant, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Mark Twain, Harper Lee are being scrubbed for the public square and the national consciousness. This is not about BLM, this is the left’s war on America.

The Truth Must be Told
Your contribution supports independent journalism
Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.
Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
