Fr. Bill addresses the habit of many public officials and media figures to compare current issues to Historical Events, Figures and Institutions, encouraging his listeners to respond, not to the extreme Rhetoric and inappropriate Hyperbole, but as a call to actually learn the history that is being invoked in the comparison.
Ignorance of History has led to the Cancel Culture that has diseased our society, in which an elite few have accentuated the worst parts of history in order to define our Church, Culture and Nation.
Fr. Bill speaks of how knowing our History is a key component in canceling the Cancel Culture and how St. Joseph personifies the history of Israel, and therefore encompasses the importance of History itself.
