Two San Francisco-area elementary schools named after early Presidents and founding fathers of the United States George Washington and Thomas Jefferson will be renamed. The Berkeley Unified School District Board voted to rename Washington and Jefferson Elementary Schools last week, in a unanimous measure that also endorsed the Black Lives Matter movement.
The school board cited the early presidents’ ownership of slaves as the rationale for renaming the schools. In the resolution, the board also pledged to find and remove other statues and monuments commemorating early American history from school properties.
Leftists had earlier sought to rename the Jefferson Elementary School in 2005, failing to pass a measure in a referendum.
Both Washington and Jefferson, who served as the first and third Presidents of the United States respectively, were southerners who owned slaves, yet opposed the practice and institution of slavery. Both ensured that many of the slaves they owned during their lives were emancipated after their deaths.
It’s somewhat of a novelty for cultural leftists to target the founding fathers themselves, instead usually preferring to wage cancel campaigns to remove Confederate statues and memorabilia from society. The recent round of racial riots and cultural dictates from major corporations and the media elite appears to have loosened their inhibition, giving the leftists the gall to target the founding fathers of the United States themselves.
The resolution passed by the Berkeley School Board also will create a program designed for teachers to collect data on potential inequality in the school system. It’s unclear exactly what this program will entail.
In the seemingly omnipotent cultural Left’s all-encompassing vision of the ultimate, authoritarian “progressive” society, there is no United States. There is no American heritage, and there is no American people.
Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds
Weren’t they peaceful protestors?
Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.
Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”
Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”
“We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover,” demanded Governor Walz. “We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.”
The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.
In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
