Our ancestors, and indeed even much closer generations like our parents and grandparents, took it for granted that their history books were almost universally apolitical. Yes, there were some historical inaccuracies and some bias, but overall there was no attempt at completely rewriting a 3000-year-old history of the European peoples.
Left-wing historians a few decades ago wouldn’t dare deconstruct their own nation's history too much and would have criticized anyone trying to claim, for example, that the Normans were African. These days though, historical accuracy is being done away with altogether, and documentaries and films are, with each passing year, becoming more and more absurd.
The latest film depicting Elizabeth I of England and her rivalry with Mary, Queen of Scots features an East Asian actress playing Elizabeth Hardwick, and a black actor playing Lord Randolph. The director, Josie Rourke, claimed that she "cannot and will not direct an all-white period drama" The self-hatred she displays towards her own people’s history is now a dominant viewpoint on the political left. The film is also full of the usual politically correct idiocy which makes a mockery of the real British people who lived in the 16th century.
Within Norwegian school textbooks though, things are even worse. The Russian media site Sputnik broke a story three weeks ago which quite frankly defies belief. In one textbook, ‘cruelty and greed’ were described as the typical characteristics of white people. In another textbook, it is claimed that the Quran is ‘liberating’ for girls, and the Ottoman conquests of Constantinople and southeastern Europe were described as peaceful actions which brought ‘privileges’ to Christians.
You would have to be very naïve to take these historical inaccuracies as truths without question, but sadly a lot of people do not have the intelligence to doubt such propaganda. Also, a lot of people who grew up decades ago and were taught how things were have allowed the Left to change their mind, and they now believe that Britain was always a multicultural island. Of course, Shakespeare and other playwrights were also guilty of ridiculous historical falsehoods which have subsequently damaged the reputations of Henry V of England and others; however, he never tried or wanted, to change the race of the historical figures he was trying to portray.
The double standard though is by far the most annoying part of this. A white man quite rightly would never be allowed to play Nelson Mandela, so why should a black man be able to play an English King? The reason, of course, is because political correctness has, and always will, have an anti-white bias.
One of the latest mainstream media narratives in England is that black Africans were in England before the English. This falsehood is full of trickery and deceit. Firstly, they pretend that the Africans involved in Roman Britain were mostly black Africans when they were mostly brown Africans from the Mediterranean coast. Secondly, they state that the Angles (English) arrived in Britain after the Roman Empire, yet they conveniently forget to mention that the genetic lineage of modern day English people are descended from both the Angles and the Ancient Britons. The Ancient Britons were in Britain long before the Roman Empire, so, therefore, they were present before any black Africans could have arrived during the Roman occupation. The genetic legacy of the indigenous people of Britain stretches back millennia to the precursor civilizations of the Indo-Europeans who swept westwards from the Steppes some ten thousand years ago.

Again, you don’t need a deep knowledge of history to work this out, yet sadly a lot of people’s education is very shallow, or they are merely naïve or don’t care.
The political left’s crusade to sever our roots, and thus destroy the pride we should hold in our ancestors, is rapidly escalating. ‘White people have no culture,’ and ‘white people have no history’ used to be extreme, far left talking points in the 1980s. However, in the last 15 years, they have been brought to the forefront of politics and endorsed by numerous mainstream media outlets.
The left doesn’t just hate white people, they hate our history and our culture as well, and they will never stop until it is all gone and forgotten. One of the best things you can do for your development and the future of the European peoples is to learn history. Doing so will not only deepen your knowledge of the world today and how it came about, but will also reinforce the need to save white people from the demographic disaster which is unfolding.
