George Washington’s Admonition to America

On Thursday night, August 13, 2020, the statue-topplers tore down another statue of the father of our country, just after they defaced it.

Each week brings more bad news on “cancel culture”—primarily individuals losing their jobs for one alleged offensive statement.
