National Archives sorry for editing anti-Trump signs

The US National Archives has apologized for altering a photo of the 2017 Women’s March. The agency called the edits, which included blurring signs critical of President Trump, ’a mistake’. Changes to the photo included removing the Trump’s name from a sign that read ’God Hates Trump’. In a statement, the agency said it had ’been committed to preserving our archival holdings, without alteration’.

While the Women's March was dumb, I can't agree with censoring or doctoring History like this. Leave the photo as is so we can learn from our mistakes.

This is just as bad at the ones tearing down historical monuments in Carolina. History should speak for itself not be viewed through a tyrants filter. They would be better off posting a parental advisory if they are worried about children seeing adults act like freaks. Some of those costumes those whack jobs wore were not suitable for public display. And that is part of the history the anti contortionist leftist will have to live with. It happened that way it should be archived that way.

Media is complicit in the fake news movement. What a fucking joke. Keep your apologies we know you’re not here to record history but to propagandize and pander.
