Commissars Unperson Laura Ingalls Wilder, While Defaming Her, for Not Speaking Like a 21th Century Communist

The thing reproduced below, by media gang member, Tanya Edwards, is a reportorial, i.e., an editorial masquerading as a news report.

Edwards’ assertion, “Her most famous novel, Little House on the Prairie (1935), has inspired almost as much disapproval as devotion,” is a bald-faced lie. If it were true, the librarians would never have named “a major children’s book award” after her, and her stories would not have been taught in elementary schools nationwide, and sold in their bookstores. We have all the Little House books, because I bought them for my boy in his school’s bookstore, circa 2006, and he loved them.

Edwards violated the First Law of Lying: Plausibility.

Edwards also lied about Wilders’ use of Phil Sheridan’s phrase. Here’s the context:

“‘The only good Indian is a dead Indian,’ Mr. Scott said. Pa said he didn't know about that. He figured that Indians would be as peaceable as anybody else if they were let alone.”
Note that it would bother me, either way.

The reason Edwards lied is easy to figure out. She wants schools to cease teaching and selling Wilder’s stories, and to replace her name on the award and in classrooms and bookstores with the name of some talentless, colored person. And the ALA has long been red.

The movement to remove all whites’ names off of awards, streets, etc., and replace them with the names of colored people, is nothing less than a campaign of genocide.

The ironic aspect of all this is that my understanding is that the true author of the Little House books was Wilder’s daughter, libertarian economist Rose Wilder Lane (1886-1968), who wrote down the stories her mother had told her during her childhood.

Laura Ingalls Wilder's name removed from award over racism concerns

The board of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association, made the unanimous decision to remove the name of author Laura Ingalls Wilder from a major children’s book award at a meeting in New Orleans on Saturday.

The Little House books

The name of the prize has been changed from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award, the Guardian reports.

The association, which took the vote at its board meeting in New Orleans, said the vote “was greeted by a standing ovation by the audience in attendance,”
Fox News reports.

Wilder is best known for her beloved Little House on the Prairie novels, which the ALSC has stated “includes expressions of stereotypical attitudes inconsistent with ALSC’s core values” based on Wilder’s portrayal of black people and Native Americans.

The first award was given to Wilder in 1954. The ALSC, which is based in Chicago, says her work continues to be published and read but her “legacy is complex” and “not universally embraced.”

[Stupid. “Complex,” as used by racial socialists, is stupid garbage. But then, so is all language, as used by them. Which leads to the second stupid, garbage phrase: “Not universally embraced.” Whose writing is “universally embraced”?

That was a rhetorical question.]

In February, the ALA announced that it was reconsidering the name of the Wilder Award. At the time, the ALA declared that her legacy put the group in the position of serving children’s reading and education while being unable to model values of “inclusiveness, integrity and respect.” Wilder’s books, it stated, “reflect racist and anti-Native sentiments and are not universally embraced.”

[“Reconsidering” was code for they’d already made their decision, but were waiting to announce it.]

Wilder was born in 1867 and died in 1957. Her most famous novel, Little House on the Prairie (1935), has inspired almost as much disapproval as devotion. The novel has racist elements, and its portrayal of Native Americans has had consequences when read uncritically in schools. In the late 1990s, scholar [sic] Waziyatawin Angela Cavender Wilson approached the Yellow Medicine East School District after her daughter came home crying because of a line in the book, first attributed to Gen. Philip Sheridan but a common saying by that time: “The only good Indian is a dead Indian.”

[When white children go home crying, because their race was deliberately defamed in school, nobody gives them a moment's concern.]

However, in her own lifetime Wilder apologized for some of her thoughtlessness, and amended a line in Little House that read Kansas had “no people, only Indians.” It now reads, “no settlers, only Indians.”

[The Indians thought in the same terms. And how does an idiot like Tanya Edwards get to call anyone “thoughtless”?]

It's horrifying. Yes, they want every white person to be seen as a criminal and terrible, bad- less than blacks, less virtuous, less spiritual, less human. That way they can rationalize the extreme violence and their hostility towards whites. It's the demonetization of whites. Un-fucking believable. Is there anyone protesting this? I'm sure the award has an endowment with guidelines. They can't just change the name of the award.

My first book was The Bobsey Twins at the Seashore. The Bobsey family had a live in cook, Dinah, and Sam the driver her husband. Maybe they jumped the broom to get married? The Dinah/Sam dialog was written in their dialog, which I never understood. I didn't see any blacks up close in real life until I was a teenager. Boy, was I lucky then. We saw them on TV rioting and breaking windows. Their dialog was in Ebonics and I rarely understood it unless I read it out load. How come she isn't going after the Laura Lee Hope award??

No prime time TV show with licensing agreements has been based on The Bobsey Twins. I smell a demand for a portion of those licensing agreements and royalties from the The Little House on the Prairies TV series and a portion of the royalties from Wilder's books to be given up to the savages. The author/reporter is setting herself up for a money grab. That will come as soon as every book of Laura Ingalls Wilder's is taken out of the libraries and stores.

, "Dinah, and Sam the driver her husband. Maybe they jumped the broom to get married?"

Even back in the old days negroes believed in marriage and having legitimate children. Maybe a lotta chirrens but legitimate nonetheless.
