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.
Heroic Florida Gym Owner Arrested for Third Time After Moving Workout Equipment Outdoors
He is pushing back against quarantine tyranny.
Florida gym owner Michael Carnevale was arrested again on Friday morning after moving some workout equipment to the parking lot outside of his gym, 1440 Fitness.
This marks the third time that Carnevale has been arrested for operating his business against state edicts, and his wife was taken into custody by police as well. He is refusing to give up on his battle against what he believes is a massive injustice being perpetrated by authorities.
“I think that this is something worth standing for,” the gym owner from Plantation said before he was arrested. “The more we seem to comply with these mandates, the more bizarre, the more intrusive these mandates seem to have gotten.”
Carnevale is currently suing the state of Florida over emergency orders that he believes are unconstitutional. He is following the path of other patriotic business owners, like salon owner Shelley Luther of Dallas, Tex. and barbershop owner Karl Manke of Owosso, Mich., in pushing back against capricious edicts put into place because of the scamdemic.
“In order to get a barber or hair-stylist license, you have 200 hours of sanitation training. 200 hours. So, those people that you are bumping into at Walmart and are all over the place, nowhere near as clean as a salon would be. Salons should be the first things to open up after hospitals,” Luther said at a press conference back in May.
“Why does your governor think that it’s okay to open up for marijuana, liquor sales. Can’t you get an abortion?” she asked.
“We have a bunch of empty shells who are in their homes that are healthy from the coronavirus that are mentally and spiritually starved. We need to bring this type of awareness to each other. We are a community. We are meant to live in a community. So shake hands with people, address people, talk to people. This continual hiding, riding around in our cars with masks on with the windows rolled up, is not healthy!” Manke said to end the press conference.
Carnevale is not the only gym owner who is fighting to keep their business going. Some patriotic gym owners are undergoing a similar battle against edicts in New Jersey, as Big League Politics has reported.
The owners of the Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, New Jersey broke through the plywood boards covering their gym’s door on August 1, 2020.
From there, they let dozens of clients enter and go on with their workout routines. This is part of an ongoing deadlock between business owners and government officials over New Jersey’s Wuhan virus-related lockdowns.
Owners Ian Smith and Frank Trumbetti immediately let 40 to 50 customers work out at the gym, which Smith claimed was less than 25 percent of the facilities’ capacity. Customers waited anxiously to get back to working out as the owners busted through the doors in defiance of the New Jersey state government’s dictates.
Smith recognized it was likely that law enforcement would come back to force them to shut down again, which has happened a number of times ever since Atilis reopened its doors in May. According to a letter that was sent to Smith, Bellmawr officials are considering the revocation of the gym’s business license.
“Gov. Murphy has weaponized the police force against us over and over,” Smith declared. “I think he looks foolish, the way he’s treating us — he’s pulling out all the stops. You have to ask, How far will one man go to destroy a small business?”
Atilis has become a symbol of the disillusionment among some residents and small-business owners over the state’s draconian Wuhan virus restrictions. It closed its doors in March alongside other gyms, restaurants, and a number of businesses that were ordered to wind down their operations in order to allegedly contain the virus’ spread.
In May, the owners opened the gym and received considerable support from Fox News. Fast forward to July, they were held in contempt of court after a Superior Court judge in Camden issued a ruling that ordered Atilis to comply with an executive order by Governor Phil Murphy that restricts indoor gym use to personal training sessions.
As long as the public continues to submit to the fear propaganda, the government officials know they can get away with anything.
