Now authoress Laura Ingalls Wilder gets Leftist erasure

Pratt on TexasRemember Little House on the Prairie? The TV show was a success and the book, published in 1932 along with seven other novels about pioneer life in later years, is a major part of American literature. Authoress Laura Ingalls Wilder was given the first eponymous award from the Association for Library Service to Children in 1954.

The “Laura Ingalls Wilder Award honors an author or illustrator whose books, published in the United States, have made, over a period of years, a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children,” according to the association’s website and has been awarded every few years since it was given to its namesake in 1954 when she was 87 years of age.

Now in Soviet or Chinese Communist fashion, the great authoress Laura Ingalls Wilder is being partly written out of history by that same association which announced that Laura Ingalls Wilder’s name is being dropped from the award.

The Left, which seems to control most all institutions including the Association for Library Service to Children, has decided that the woman who was born in 1867 held views on American Indians and black people that just do not fit their views today.

Instead of recognizing Laura Ingalls Wilder’s views as having been common in her time and using such as a teaching mechanism for how society has changed for the better, they’ve decided to remove one of our greatest twentieth century authoresses from her position of honor.

Who are the real “book burners” in history? Meaning those who attempt to cleanse the world of ideas with which they disagree.

While some religionists have been such, in the past century through today it is the political Left that has had a near monopoly on such.
