Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, January 18, 2020

The National Archives acknowledged this week that it altered a photograph of the Women's March, which took place the day after President Trump's inauguration in 2017, to blur some signs held by marchers that were critical of the president.

This is the thread where leftists pretend they haven't been shoveling American history down the memory hole for the last few years.

"To avoid political controversy"

To avoid Trump having another one of his rages.

This is how we have dictatorship. One coward at a time.

Nullnuts,
This is the post where the leftist points out that Texas, the state which produces the lion's share of public school history books, has been editing out Liberal founding fathers from textbooks for years.

#4 No, it's just the thread where we laugh at our miserable little snowflake "President" and all the pathetic little hangers on who defend him (like you).

Hahahahahahahaahahahaha

In a thread about the Archives you're attacking leftists. Changing the subject is a form of defense. And i'm here to laugh at you, Trump ----------.

Hahahahahahahaha

Archives are supposed to be saved for the future so that future Americans can get a sense of what the reality was in earlier eras. Changing images to make them politically correct alters what people will know about our history, those images should be returned to their original state.

Some of Epstein's mansions are vacant. Also, lot of Trump properties haven't been able to get any tenants since he was elected. Putting it in one of his properties would be just like him and his family of grifters.

The National Archive an apolitical organization, trys to stay out of politics by altering photos under the direction of an Obama appointed, David S. Ferriero, archivist who supported the changes for promotional material.

Lefties here gets upset, blame Trump.

Hilarious.

Trump has little care for and less knowledge of history, and is easily provoked.

Always amazing how you defend him as a reasonable and good man.

He's not. Until he changes, he gets blamed for the evil he causes both directly and indirectly.

"David S. Ferriero, archivist who supported the changes for promotional material"

Makes no sense on its face, given the wealth of neutral material available for promotion.

The sucker was ORDERED to make the changes. I am sure that other examples will be found.

If memory serves, Trump has previously published doctored photos of his own inauguration, to make sure Year 2525 knows it was the Biggest inauguration of them all.

Disloyal Marxists blame Trump as if they believe deep staters in the the government would cover for him. The fact is they were trying to scrub the bat-guano crazy of the Anti-Trump protesters to make them look less insane.

I'm surprised that the signs weren't changed with a sharpie

You and I both know that isn't true and that you are just trying to diminish the significance of altering photos of actual events for political purposes. And you call us "disloyal," I've never pledged loyalty to Trump, never will. Only absolute fools do that. You'll live to regret it and, I suspect, deny it.

Danni,
I reviewed my post and reviewed the article and I stand by my original posting.

There is no way Trump or a Trump favoring bureaucrat (if they exist) ordered this change. This alteration was to hide foul mouth signs and make the protesters look less insane. If anything Trump would want the unhinged nature of these protesters out in the open and on display.

I can't keep up with every faux scandal that involves Trump so I didn't know what sharpiegate was. That's an even smaller teapot tempest.

If you are so uninformed as to not know about IPBoS changing a weather map with a sharpie to show a hurricane hitting Alabama (as he said), when in reality it DIDNT hit Alabama, well your opinion isn't really valid.

What history might that be Nulli? From what I've seen it is the right that wants to alter history so that their heroes look better in retrospect. In this thread, of all threads, for you to post that bulls**t lie just makes you look stupid.

So the Trump Administration has changed its sights from destroying this nation to altering history for Trump's personal benefit.

Because Trumpublicans are the most shortsighted morons alive.

In order to point out hypocrisy you'd need to provide citations.

Not just drop by with vague accusations.

No. You're not here for much, other than to troll.

--In order to point out hypocrisy you'd need to provide citations.

I've thoroughly documented the efforts of leftwing censors to suppress speakers, books, movies, historical murals, etc. You don't care. You people won't even read the links so I'm not going to waste time reposting them.

But for the benefit of others who aren't leftist ideologues, here's one of many.

The National Archives used to stand for independence. That mission has been compromised.

By blurring out details from protest signs in an image of the 2017 Women's March, including the name of President Trump and references to the female anatomy " a decision the Archives publicly apologized for on Saturday " it has damaged the faith many Americans, particularly women, may have had in its role as an impartial conservator of the nation's records. It has unnecessarily squandered something that cannot easily be regained.
There must be consequences.
