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.
President Trump Shuts Down Minnesota Governor’s Demand for $500 Million in Riot Repair Funds
He wanted the taxpayer to pay for the riots.
President Donald Trump formally declined a request from Minnesota Governor Tim Walz to declare Minneapolis a federal disaster zone in the wake of the George Floyd race riots on Saturday, preventing the city’s Democratic governor and mayor from bilking the taxpayer for bailout funds to repair the damage they tacitly allowed through refusal to halt the riots.
Walz’s office confirmed that the White House had refused his request for an emergency declaration on Saturday in a press release, explaining that the governor had hoped the federal government would clean up the mess.
“The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support,” said a spokesperson in a statement. “As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through.”
The rioting in Minneapolis may have been among the most destructive ever to occur in the United States, devastating the community, causing what some estimate to be $500 million in damages to property, and damaging more than 500 buildings. Many Americans probably wouldn’t know it, as the corporate media has largely focused on promoting the activities of the rioters, falsely describing them as peaceful protestors, allowing the model of community destruction to be exported to other American communities.
Both Governor Walz and neoliberal Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey had waited fecklessly to deploy the Minnesota National Guard to contain the dangerous situation, hoping to appease the raging mob as the rioters torched a Minneapolis police precinct and destroyed countless small businesses in the city’s downtown area.
At the very least, the state’s Democratic officials won’t be rewarded with a hefty federal bailout as a result of their own irresponsibility and political fecklessness in refusing to crack down on criminal rioters. Sadly, it’ll be members of the Minneapolis community who pay for the cowardice of their local officials, and the once-serene upper-class community may never recover, instead morphing into a dilapidated shell of its former self.
