Fairfax School District Votes to Rename Robert E. Lee High School After John Lewis
A school district in Fairfax, Va. has voted to rename Robert E. Lee High School after the late John Lewis, the far-left Congressman out of Georgia who recently died of pancreatic cancer.
“The Board heard from students, teachers and staff members, families, and the community about the old name,” said School Board Chair Ricardy Anderson during today’s Zoom meeting.
“It was important for us to be mindful of these comments and to select a name that reflected the diversity and multiculturalism that currently exists at the school and in our community. Rep. Lewis was a champion of the Civil Rights movement, and our Board strongly believes this is an appropriate tribute to an individual who is a true American hero. We will also honor his life’s work by continuing to promote equity, justice, tolerance and service in the work that we do,” Anderson added.
The school change is set to go into effect during the 2020-2021 school year. Lewis has no real ties to the state of Virginia, but the symbolism is obvious. The state is pissing on its heritage, and disgracing its heroic ancestors, in order to usher in the new era of diversity and multiculturalism.
While Lewis was alive, he was a dogged opponent of President Donald Trump and a supporter of the far-left agenda that is destroying the country.
“I don’t see this President-elect as a legitimate president,” Lewis once told NBC News’ Chuck Todd.
“Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. All talk, talk, talk – no action or results. Sad,” Trump said about Lewis back in 2017.
“Congressman John Lewis should finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities of the U.S. I can use all the help I can get!” he added.
Big League Politics has reported about how liberals in Virginia, led by the infamous Governor Blackface Northam, are targeting Robert E. Lee’s legacy for destruction:
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is using his power to push for the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue from the U.S. Capitol in a revolting display of Cultural Marxism.
Northam is on board with the initiative pushed by Democrat Reps. A. Donald McEachin and Jennifer Wexton that would remove General Lee’s statue in the U.S. Capitol and replace him with an African-American leader to show the state’s commitment to diversity.
“These statutes aimed to rewrite Lee’s reputation from that of a cruel slave owner and Confederate General to portraying him as a kind man and reluctant war hero who selflessly served his home state of Virginia,” McEachin and Wexton wrote in their letter to Northam.
“As Virginians, we have a responsibility to not only learn from but also confront our history,” they added. “As part of this responsibility, we must strive for a more complete telling of history by raising up the voices, stories, and memories of minorities and people of color.”
It did not take any convincing from the letters to sway Northam. The Governor quickly signaled back to the lawmakers that this has been a priority of his for a long time.
“This is something the governor has long wanted to do — he is looking forward to working with the congressional delegation and members of the General Assembly to get it done this year,” a spokesman for Northam said.
