Who among us here are fans of George Orwell? Recently I reread Nineteen-Eighty-Four and viewed again that infamous and controversial title's big-screen treatment. The problem I have personally with both the novel and movie is twofold. One, the story told in both mediums is difficult to consume, to get through and the time when I could sit back and enjoy Orwell's imagination clutched in edge of my seat suspense while grounded in the relative solid reality and safety of our real world compared to the sickly pale horror of his "future" fictional one seems to be long gone. That scene where poor Winston begs O'Brian to let the rats eat Julia's face first well, still gets to me, as does that one in the end where Winston professes his true love to Big Brother, thinking he's about to be shot any moment. Moving on to more modern fiction, I sat down the other night to re-watch the recent film Overlord, which on its surface seemed to be a badass WWII horror film dripping with Nazi zombie killing awesomeness. We'd originally gone to see it at the theater, but do to a sudden emergency had to bail right after the opening few minutes. About five minutes into the Blu-ray version I stopped it, couldn't stand to watch one more second. Not because the film was that terrifying, suspenseful or low budget cheese-fest. I wish. We turned it off because the main character is so out of place in the historical context of the film's setting as to be a major deal breaker. Further, his presence in the film does a great injustice to those men of courage who were actually there. Yes, the writers wrote a young black paratrooper onto a C-47 about to jump into France on D-Day eve. Now to the topic of the thread. I have very personal connections to the US Army Airborne Regiments through my grandfather who served during WWII with the 82nd, and my own service with one training regiment and two regular Army PIRs. With those connections also comes deep knowledge of Army Airborne history. Despite what Google might tell you, there were no soldiers of color aboard those C-47s as depicted in the film Overlord. So why should all Americans of all skin tones and cultures care about the revision of history (addition of a black soldier for example where black soldiers never were) in a horror movie, a piece of popcorn fiction? Well, lets jump back to Orwell's Nineteen-Eighty-Four for a few moments. Main character Winston's job in both the novel and movie was falsifying or revising history to fit 'The Party's' ideology. Sometimes one almost has to wonder if the modern Democratic Party/Global Leftism hired Orwell Scholars to recreate his seminal work on modern Western Civilization in our real world. That's high-wire hyperbole you might charge. However, over the last decade in particular there's been a rapid rise in instances of American and European Historical Revisionism wherein people of color are falsely inserted into historical dramas, documentaries, TV series and textbooks. I'm not gonna Google each instance for you, however, there arises another serious threat to true history--perhaps the greatest threat. Will a day come, or has it arrived already, where both sides of the modern political ideological spectrum resort to Googling for evidence to prove the opposing side wrong only for one side to be unable to find any true history to support their sides arguments? Because one side's history has been completely revised to support one Party's meta-narrative? Now, why should those who benefit most from historical revisionism also be deeply worried about its recent success? Well, what's to stop a future political regime from cutting people of color completely out of their rightful places in their own history? What's to stop some future historian from making Zulu Kings Hispanic, or dramas about American Slavery where the slaves who suffer most are white? See where this is going? If any of us care about our collective, true histories respectively, be they European, African, Native American or Asian or whatever then we need to band to together to say, "No!" to falsification any history. Good thing some of us kept those sets of Encyclopedias, huh?
