Detroit School Board Is Trying To Re-Name Ben Carson High School

Published

on

Members of the Detroit school board want to re-name Benjamin Carson High School, due to Dr. Carson’s accomplished service as Housing and Urban Development Secretary under President Donald Trump.

In fact, the school board member leading the effort to strip Carson’s name from the school cited the Trump administration as the reason. The board reportedly voted 6-1 to begin the process of deleting the famed neurosurgeon’s local legacy, but it’s not official yet, and it’s possible that the Carson school could still be saved.

Possible but not likely.

The Detroit News reports on the crisis: “Board member LaMar Lemmons had pushed to rename Carson school, which is named after the Housing and Urban Development secretary and former Republican presidential candidate who graduated from the district. Lemmons cited the neurosurgeon’s name being added when the district was under an emergency financial manager, saying some residents objected to Carson representing the city. Residents “don’t support the (Trump) administration,” he said.” Detroit News passage ends

So, let’s get this straight.

Dr. Ben Carson is a black man who became a history-making doctor, a presidential candidate, and a successful HUD Secretary, but politically-motivated school board members don’t think Carson’s name should adorn a school building in the crime-ridden city of Detroit, where educational scarcity is reaching crisis levels?

Meanwhile, Malcolm X Shabazz High School in Newark, named for the Nation of Islam figurehead of the 1960’s, is just fine.

Welcome to America in 2018. Partisan rancor and disrespect for history.

New Mexico Bureaucrat Arrested for Vandalizing State GOP Headquarters

Cameron Chase McCall is a former intern for New Mexico’s Democratic governor.

A New Mexico state employee heavily connected to the state Democratic party is being charged with vandalizing the Republican Party’s headquarters in the state.

Cameron Chase McCall was arrested Thursday in relation to spray-paint vandalism of the Republican Party offices in Albuquerque. The Expo New Mexico employee was caught on surveillance cameras spraying the words “still traitors” on the building.

Republican Party officials say the vandalism will cost more than $4,000 to repair.

A quick look into McCall’s background shows his motives to be readily apparent. McCall is a former intern for New Mexico’s liberal Democratic governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, when she was a member of congress. She condemned her intern’s behavior in a statement released following his arrest.

Albuquerque police are also investigating if McCall is responsible for a closely similar incident back in March, when the same Republican Party offices were spraypainted with the word “traitors.” Sources indicate that the same kind of spray paint was used in both incidents. The initial act of vandalism inspired Republicans to install cameras at the offices, which proved crucial in identifying McCall as the culprit of the latest political crime.

Expo New Mexico is a state-run convention center in Albuquerque. A Bernalillo county judge identified McCall as a “sponsorship coordinator” for the venue during his initial appearance in court on Thursday. McCall was suspended from his job following his vandalism arrest, and officials with the entity state that he’ll be fired if he’s convicted of the charges.

McCall has been released on bond to await trial. He’s one of several political zealots to make national news recently for acting on their hatred for the Republican Party by committing crimes.
