Plimoth Plantation changing name to be more inclusive

Published

on

Plimoth Plantation will be changing their name by the end of the year as a branding change has already begun.

In a statement released this week, it was revealed that the “Museum seeks to represent all of the people, Indigenous and European, first-generation or with deep roots, who lived, worked, loved, fought, planted, and traded on this land in the 17th century.”

The Museum was in discussions concerning a name change for the past year.

Until the new name is decided upon, the Museum is using a special mark as part of this year’s 400 year commemoration in their signage and promotional materials.

In the statement, the Museum referenced that they are called to have the necessary and sometimes painful discussions in these current times.

“Regardless of its name, this Museum will continue to hold a space for humanity: the community table. An open invitation to come together and talk. We create space for conversations and experiences interwoven with elements that are immersive and participatory, inclusive and social, personal and relevant. We will continue to strive for inclusion and we invite you to join the conversation.”

        I don’t remember the Pilgrims as having slaves. I remember them as fighting for religious and otherwise freedoms.

          The weren’t fighting for religious freedom. They were fighting to force everyone to follow their brand of Christianity. If you want religious freedom you need to travel north to Providence Plantations. The place Roger Williams founded when he was kicked out of Massachusetts for practicing religious freedom.

        Plantations weren’t just about slaves. You’re so self-centered.

    How about “White Erasure Village” since they are trying to play the whole “Multicultural” myth to eliminate the white people who built this village. If indians wanted a village museum then they should have built villages instead of burning them.

    “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

    ― George Orwell, 1984

    How about just call it a settlement as that is what is was.

    I am not sure if you all understand the definition of plantation.
    “an estate on which crops such as coffee, sugar, and tobacco are cultivated by resident labor”.
    That is exactly what Plymouth plantation is. They all live there and cultivate.
    The word plantation does not mean slavery and i am 100% sure if slavery had never happened there still would have been a word plantation.

    There are forces that rule over the feeble minds amongst us. These forces have concluded that in order for them to hide their crimes a division must be formented amongst the mass mind controlled. These particular forces control television, the internet and information, religion and politics, and most importantly finance. While we are busy gathering money to trade for our lifestyles, these controllers are plotting for our deaths on a mass scale. Through sterilization to abortion, alcohol and drugs, violent crime, poisoning of our food air and water, death is inevitable. These divisions are being sown by perverting our history, and distracting us from our destiny. Mans destiny is colonization whether that be in remote regions of the earth or even the frontiers of space. Colonization is the key to lifting up vast amounts of human beings. Individually we hold the keys to one anothers destiny. Collectivism is not something to be legislated. The Pilgrims that made their way to Plimoth Massachusetts did what man’s nature leads us too, we Colonize. There should be no shame in Colonization, in fact I am proud of those who Colonized and laid forth the seeds that have sprouted into the greatest Republic in recorded history. The seeds that were planted will never be erased by this fervent group of dividers. There is one original source that we must reconnect to in order to flourish once more and it is not the source code of google or facebook. The original source is the designer of man. The great symphony of the creator is manifesting all life on earth, remember that you begin as a vibration. A musical symphony generating out of the core of our sun is manifesting you right this very moment. Get in touch with this vibrational energy and you shall know your creator. Get distracted from this energy and you will loose your connection to God. Low energy vibrations from satan can only manifest in the earthly energy field through fallen men. Your connection to the original source is everywhere, hence omnipresence. The truly “WOKE” are not focused on division, but on bringing the vibrational love of our creator to the core of our beings. If you want to be liberated plug into the energy vibrations of the original source, God, through the Sun.
