In one of the latest moves to erase American history, a number of Brigham Young University students are demanding that all campus buildings be renamed.
They are calling for this action to be taken on the grounds of removing “racist and xenophobic” history.
The BYU Black Student Union led the charge by sending a letter to President Russell Nelson of The Church of Latter-day Saints, the owner of BYU, demanding that campus buildings be unnamed. The union asserts that many of the individuals and names memorialized on campus “permitted discriminatory policies and perpetuated racist practices, they laid bricks for the injurious present we experience in our Black bodies.”
Sergei Kelley of Campus Reform reported that the letter lists off the names and memorials of leaders in the LDS church that must be “unnamed” with the aim of acknowledging the “pain in our history” and offering an opportunity for the church to atone for its allegedly evil ways.
Students at BYU have already manifested their opposition to statues and building names. Per a previous Campus Reform report in June, Brigham Young’s statue was vandalized after agitators spray-painted the word “racist” across the statue. In addition, vandals spray-painted a red “X” on the sign of the Abraham Smoot Administration Building.
In a letter directed to the NAACP, the Black Student Union petitioned it to hold the university accountable.
“We unequivocally condemn the honoring and memorializing of slave masters, segregationists, and proponents of slavery on our campus.”
In its “Declaration of Grievances,” the Black Student Union urged the NAACP to help out in its campaign to rename buildings.
“We unequivocally condemn the honoring and memorializing of slave masters, segregationists, and proponents of slavery on our campus.,” the letter to the NAACP declared.
The Black Student Union is seeking to rename all buildings and programs, in order to make sure that no figures are “singled-out” or “defamed.”
Some of the individuals commemorated on campus were advocates against interracial marriages, held slaves, and asserted “negroes are not entitled to the full blessings of the Gospel,” according to a report from The Salt Lake Tribune.
In response to the calls to rename campus buildings and programs, the university created a committee to investigate racial disparities at the university, according to a report from The Salt Lake Tribune.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
