The white house website is a place that honors history and the historical moments that have contributed to the positive changes and direction of history — one that I hope we continue. Erasing those pages is a political move against history and against the people whom the government must stand for. If the government is for the people, then it should represent all of the people, not a select few. I hope that those who voted for you-know-who (T) come to realize that, but I highly doubt it.
Removing those pages is a move that attempts to delegitimize and history. And that’s a move that a fascist government would make. Keep that in mind. This is not normal nor will it become normal. Remember that too and remember the 5 lessons from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr..
Below I’ve assorted PDF screen shots of the webpages; they don’t preserve the movability of the actual website of course, but you are able to download and read what was on them. For those who know what Wayback Machine is, it is a digital archive of the internet. I’ve also assorted a “site map” of the original white house website that will take you to those pages. This does preserve navigation and works just like it did before. The PDFs are to ensure that there’s something preserved if something ever “happens” to Wayback Machine (TIP: Don’t take it for granted).
