Author of ‘Little House on the Prairie’ Has Named Removed From Major Award, Here’s Why

Published

on

The crusade of the left for political correctness continues to wreak havoc on the arts and on the great history of our nation, as liberals set their sights on Laura Ingalls Wilder.

A division that is part of the American Library Association has removed the Little House on the Prairie author’s name from a prestigious award because they don’t like her portrayal of minorities in the best-selling classic of American literature.

These people really think you can fix the problems of the past by erasing them and pretending that they never happened. It’s truly tragic.

According to the association’s website, the board of the Association for Library Service to Children unanimously decided to change the name of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award. The decision came Saturday at a meeting in New Orleans.

The ALSC said that Wilder “includes expressions of stereotypical attitudes inconsistent” with the organization’s “core values of inclusiveness, integrity and respect, and responsiveness” and noted that the author’s “legacy is complex” and “not universally embraced.”

According to the organization’s website, “The Children’s Literature Legacy Award honors an author or illustrator whose books, published in the United States, have made, over a period of years, a significant and lasting contribution to children’s literature through books that demonstrate integrity and respect for all children’s lives and experiences.”

Wilder received the first award in 1954. The award was subsequently presented as the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal every five years between 1960 and 1980, every three years between 1980 and 2001, every two years between 2001 and 2016, and annually since.

A majority of the “Little House on the Prairie” books were published between 1932 and 1943 and were based on Wilder’s upbringing in the Great Plains in the 1800s.

Something the left can’t seem to wrap their tiny brains around is the fact that if you don’t acknowledge the mistakes of the past, if you don’t talk about them in context and understand them, you’ll be condemned to repeat them.

Like it or not, our past if full of ignorance about race and nothing will change that. People just didn’t understand a lot of things back then, but we have, step-by-step worked on getting past that.

However, to completely pretend a person’s accomplishments don’t matter simply because they held views common to the time that are no longer held today is ludicrous. Wilder contributed much to our culture and society through her work and provides a snapshot of the era in which she grew up.

Ignoring all of that rich history, even the mistakes that were made, is to set up future generations for failure. Then again, maybe that’s precisely what the left wants to begin with.

Trump 2020 Campaign Fires McGhan’s Law Firm

Turnover is nothing new for the Trump White House.

Published

One of the key players identified in the pages of the Mueller report is Don McGhan, former counsel to the President. McGhan’s name hasn’t previously been this far into the forefront, but a revelation from within Robert Mueller’s inconclusive dissertation regarding possible obstruction of justice by the President has made him nearly a household name. McGhan’s infamy arises from a passage in the report detailing his reaction to a question by President Trump regarding possible conflicts of interest that Robert Mueller and his team may have had. After McGhan’s insubordination became public knowledge with the release of Mueller’s epic tome, President Trump’s 2020 campaign team have decided to no longer retain legal services from his firm. The Trump campaign has hired its own in-house attorney for its 2020 reelection bid — shifting future business away from Jones Day, the law firm, that has represented Trump since his first run for president. Campaign officials and advisers cast the decision to hire Nathan Groth — a former lawyer for the Republican National Committee and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — as a money-saving move, supported by the businessman-turned-president who loves to cut costs. Here’s the kicker… But close Trump advisers say the decision also stems from disappointment with the White House’s former top attorney and current Jones Day partner, Don McGahn, whose behavior has irked the president and some of his family members. This certainly won’t surprise many within Trump’s inner circle, as his administration has been rife with turnover during the 2+ years since the President was inaugurated.

Trump Approval Numbers are SHOCKING After Mueller Report Release

National Emergency

The mainstream media’s nonstop speculation on the meaning of the Mueller report has certainly had an impact on the psyche of the nation. For two days, (that feel like an eternity), the infotainment industry has been parsing nearly every word from within the 400+ page report compiled by Robert Mueller in his role as Special Counsel. While Mueller was unable to charge the President with a crime, the mainstream media is now clinging to hope that congressional democrats will keep the fight alive….somehow. This cacophony of progressive nonsense has manifested itself in President Trump’s approval ratings. The number of Americans who approve of President Donald Trump dropped by 3 percentage points to the lowest level of the year following the release of a special counsel report detailing Russian interference in the last U.S. presidential election, according to an exclusive Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll. The poll, conducted Thursday afternoon to Friday morning, is the first national survey to measure the response from the American public after the U.S. Justice Department released Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report that recounted numerous occasions in which Trump may have interfered with the investigation. Where does Trump stand? According to the poll, 37 percent of adults in the United States approved of Trump’s performance in office, down from 40 percent in a similar poll conducted on April 15 and matching the lowest level of the year. That is also down from 43 percent in a poll conducted shortly after U.S. Attorney General William Barr circulated a summary of the report in March. The President has communicated his displeasure at the continued grievance of the democrats via Twitter, where he has lashed out several times since the release of the Mueller report.
