Big Fat Liars

Do you remember the photograph of the three white fireman raising the American flag on September 11 on top of the rubble of the World Trade Center? Well, according to Paul Craig Roberts, a 19-foot bronze statue of the photo is going to be put at the site. But the race of the firemen has been changed. The statue will depict one white fireman, one black fireman, and one Hispanic fireman. When the white father of a fireman who had lost his life in the rubble of 9/11 protested the dishonesty of the statue, he was told: “The artistic expression of diversity should supersede any concern over factual correctness.” Such has been the situation in our society, schools, and churches for quite some time. It’s helpful to have it so clearly stated at last.
