We've all witnessed university professors trying to erase or revise
President Reagan's achievements. Now, the University of
Chicago has no second thoughts about eradicating President Reagan's
Ronald Reagan's boyhood home in Hyde Park in Chicago is an
apartment in a six-flat building on East 57th Street Maryland
avenue. It's full of history from Ronald Reagan's early years, but
that doesn't matter to the University of Chicago, who has owned the
building since 2004.
Can you imagine if this were Barack Obama's childhood home?
Or Bill Clinton's or FDR's? The federal government would have
acted immediately to save it as a national monument.
In fact, the University of Chicago is currently lobbying for an
Obama Presidential Library.
The Left's ignorance and intolerance of historical conservative
sites is nothing new. The Clinton administration refused to
protect the Reagan Ranch as a historical landmark. The California
state legislature refused to act. Young America's
Foundation stepped in to save the Ranch in 1998 to preserve it for
The Left will make sure that the next generation has plenty of
opportunities to walk on President Obama's so-called "hallowed
ground" years from now.
Sadly, young people probably won't have the Reagan boyhood home to
learn more about Ronald Reagan-unless, of course, something is done
to reverse this immediately.
