A failed leftist gubernatorial candidate from Georgia has agreed to give a rebuttal to President Donald J. Trump’s State of the Union address, which will be held on Feb. 5.
“Sen Schumer says Stacey Abrams of Georgia has agreed to give the response to President Trump’s State of the Union Address,” Tweeted reporter Jamie Dupree.

Abrams, who lost her 2018 gubernatorial race to Republican Brian Kemp and then bitterly challenged the legitimacy of the election and caused controversy after failing to pay some of her canvassers, is known for her radical leftist agenda.
She is a radical socialist who wanted to implement gun buybacks in Georgia if elected, and said that illegal aliens should be allowed to vote. Her campaign site advocated for tuition free college and healthcare for all.
“To create a state where every family has the opportunity to thrive, ensuring access to affordable health care for each and every Georgian is absolutely essential,” her site said. “Expanding Medicaid is not only critical to expanding access to health care throughout our state, it’s a moral and economic imperative, and will be Stacey Abrams’s first priority as governor. Medicaid expansion will provide access to health care for 500,000 Georgians, create more than 50,000 jobs across the state, expand mental health supports, and protect rural hospitals from closure.”
In response to Trump’s election, Democrats have moved further left politically. Perhaps it would have been beneficial to moderate, but they are enamored with the idea of socialism. Thus, radicals like Abrams continue to have access to a platform within the Democratic party, despite the unpopularity of socialism on the whole.

City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”
There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.
The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”
“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.
Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.
The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.
Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”
Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.
Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
