The dark art of historical revisionism was a thing under the tyrannical rule of Stalin during the darkest days of the Soviet Union. But now revisionism is being practiced by self-proclaimed goody two-shoes on the progressive left.
Barely a month goes by without the call going out to remove a statue of someone who no longer passes the PC sniff test.
Now, according to a CBC report, the Art Gallery of Ontario has scrubbed the word “Indian” from the 1929 painting, Indian Church, because curator Georgiana Uhlyarik says it is “a word that causes pain.”
But, who’s in pain from hearing that word?
Regardless, the painting is now called Church at Yuquot Village after the B.C. Indigenous community where it was located, but in tangible terms, what does such virtue-signalling really accomplish?
And, going forward, what other I-names will face the axe in the days ahead lest we trigger some sensitive progressives?
