In their desperate push to erase American history, the far-left liberals in charge of Charlottesville, Va. have announced that they will not be celebrating the birthday of founding father Thomas Jefferson this year and in subsequent years as well.
Instead of celebrating Jefferson’s birthday on Apr. 13, the city decided to celebrate Liberation and Freedom Day on March 3, a date that commemorates the freeing of the slaves.
“We’re not going to forget Mr. Jefferson. His name adorns streets, parks, endowed chairs at the university, lecture halls and he’s just all over the place,” Jalane Schmidt, a leftist University of Virginia professor, said to CNN. “But we prioritize the emancipation of slaves over his birthday.”
But Jefferson’s name won’t be honored publicly for long. After desecrating Confederate monuments and tributes throughout the south (with many cowardly Republicans joining in), the extreme Left is setting their sights on the founding fathers.
The type of events that will be featured throughout the week for “Liberation and Freedom Days” include “Racial Justice and Black Feminism,” a Ghanaian Independence Day celebration, and a panel discussion featuring so-called descendants from slaves.
Former city councilor Wes Bellamy, the racist hate-filled communist whose derelict actions helped lead to the “Unite the Right” disaster in 2017, was more explicit about the leftist agenda to desecrate the Founding Fathers and uproot American history.
“It’s very hard to expect us to celebrate an individual who said black people didn’t have the ability to emote, that we smelled very vile, an individual who raped Sally Hemings and other slaves, and was just a treacherous slave owner,” former city councilor Wes Bellamy said to CNN.
“It’s difficult to celebrate his birthday and at the same time celebrate the day in which enslaved Africans were set free. It doesn’t go hand in hand with the city and the representation of what we’re trying to do to move forward,” he added.
It was this open racist’s idea to end the celebration of Jefferson’s birthday and replace it with an annual remembrance of slaves being freed. Bellamy is proud that he helped move the town one more step forward to the communist overthrow that he is seeking.
“It’s important to be patient with people and impatient with progress. We’ll have to wait for people to realize on their own time how painful and hurtful his actions were on our people,” Bellamy said.
“I’m sorry they feel offended and think this is disgraceful, but as a community, we are not going to celebrate a white supremacist. You can see a person’s best qualities when you have the privilege to take advantage of the things they put in place. But for those of us who have been on the shorter end of the stick, there’s nothing about him worth being celebrated,” he added.
California’s Santa Clara County, Reportedly the Last Place in America to Prohibit Indoor Worship, Finally Lifts Ban Following Supreme Court Order
Santa Clara County is home to Silicon Valley.
The Supreme Court issued an order on Friday that required California’s Santa Clara County to lift its prohibition on indoor religious services.
Santa Clara County is home to Silicon Valley and the city of San Jose. It may have been the last place in the United States to maintain its indoor worship ban prior to the Supreme Court order, which came almost a full year after the in-earnest beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in America.
Bishop Oscar Cantu of San Jose said in a Friday night statement that “I join all Catholics and people of faith in Santa Clara County in expressing our satisfaction in tonight’s U.S. Supreme Court decision rejecting Santa Clara County’s ban on indoor worship services. Santa Clara was the only county in the country to continue such a ban. Banning indoor worship and yet allowing people to gather at airports, personal services establishments, and retail shopping is unconstitutional—and the Supreme Court has said so several times.”
Religious services in Santa Clara County, however, cannot take place at more than 20 percent capacity and without strict mask, social distancing, and sanitization protocols.
After hearing the South Bay United Pentecostal Church v. Newsom case, SCOTUS ruled on February 5 in favor of the former and effectively mandated that the state of California lift its ban on indoor religious services. Santa Clara County tried to maintain that the ruling didn’t apply to them because their county directives did not specifically target religious worship, but the court is evidently not buying that explanation given Friday’s order.
The decision back in 2020 to deem religious services “non-essential” was disastrous and evil from the beginning. Glad the Supreme Court has been doing its part to rectify that injustice.
