A Recasting of Our Currency to Promote a ‘New’ History

By James Longstreet

Patrick J. Buchanan is an historian. In his piece, “Dishonoring General Jackson”, Buchanan conjures up facts. That is what historians do. Regarding the recent proposal to put new faces on our currency, and noticing a very certain attitude,

“..this is affirmative action raised to fanaticism, a celebration of President Obama’s views and values, and a recasting of our currency..”

I heard a conservative radio host dismiss the currency reconfiguration issue as a non event. His argument was that there were more important issues to concern ourselves with, the national debt, illegal immigration, etc.. I maintain that we can hold concern for many things at the same time, and that this currency remake is indeed one that should hold our attention. Pat Buchanan agrees.

Image control is no small issue, and politicians and revolutionaries know it. To reface the currency is to shuffle the deck on historical hierarchies, or should I say “load” the deck. It is a rewrite of history, a new declaration of what is and was important. That is no small matter.

Buchanan writes:

Actually, this is cultural marxism.
