If you’re looking for something “kooky” to watch this summer, the 2020 race for the White House may be a great place to start.
With 20-some candidates still vying for their shot at the Oval Office, there has been no shortage of strange claims or wild accusations. The mudslinging has been simply unreal this go-round, as the hypocrisy of the liberal left has found itself mutating and expanding in ever-more ludicrous directions.
This may all very well be a product of the enormous size of the field, particularly as the candidates find themselves turning to outlandish claims in order to separate themselves from one another.
The latest bizarre blurting comes to us from New Age self-help guru Marianne Williamson, who would like to take a huge chunk out of American history in order to appeal to the “social justice” crowd.
Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson, calling for a national “atonement” over the treatment of Native Americans, vowed Monday to rescind medals of honor for those who fought against them and even take down President Andrew Jackson’s portrait from the Oval Office if she’s elected.
The spiritual author, who has gained a devoted following in recent weeks for her memorable debate performances, called for a “new era of American history” with Native Americans during an appearance at the Frank LaMere Native American Presidential Forum.
“We can atone. We can make amends,” Williamson said. “And if and when I’m president of the United States, we will. We will begin by taking that picture of Andrew Jackson off the wall of the Oval Office.”
Jackson’s unfortunate involvement in the circumstances leading up to the Trail of Tears has long been considered a regrettable portion of his legacy, and one that Americans need no help in condemning on their own.
By erasing this ugly incident from history, however, we deprive future generations of the ability to learn from these mistakes and prevent similar acts in the future.
