Media Praises San Juan Mayor For Being ‘Helpless,’ Handing Out ‘Solar-Powered Lanterns’

Published

The Washington Post is out with a scathing rebuttal to President Trump’s tweet criticizing the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, who has reportedly changed her tune about the effectiveness of Trump’s response to the hurricane.

“Trump called San Juan’s mayor a weak leader. Here’s what her leadership looks like,” says the Post about Carmen Yulin Cruz.

Want to bet the “her” in that headline is the word they meant to accentuate?

“Politics is a rough game, and sometimes as females we are taught that you have to play nice,” she once said in an interview. “Sometimes you can’t play nice.”

As a race for mayor in her home town approached in 2012, she waffled publicly on whether to enter as a candidate.

At first she denied any plans to run. Once she entered the race, she strung together small coalitions to form her base of support. Such groups included the LGBT community, students, Dominican immigrants and taxi drivers.
With such allies, she managed to beat her opponent, three-time incumbent Jorge Santini.

All right, we get it we get it.

Here’s the part that really stands out:

The mayor herself felt relatively helpless — only able to do so much for her exhausted neighbors and frightened constituents.
“I know we’re not going to get to everybody in time,” she said. But she would try.
On her way to the interview, she said, a man asked her for a favor: “To tell the world we’re here.”
As tears filled her eyes, Cruz obliged.
“If anyone can hear us,” she told the reporter, “help.”
A week later, signs hung in basketball courts of Old San Juan: “SOS.” “Don’t abandon us.”
As darkness fell Thursday, families searched for water by the light of the moon and cellphones with dwindling batteries. They passed through a tunnel beneath a city wall and found at its exit a water tank left there by the city — a godsend.
And then they found their mayor.
Cruz hugged them as they came to her. She handed to each family a small solar-powered lantern — “a box of blessings,” she called it.
“Now this is life,” she told The Post.

So, she’s a good mayor because she’s “helpless” and giving out solar-powered lanterns?

SOLAR-POWERED LANTERNS?

The establishment media wants to make President Trump out to be the hurricane, and it’s not working. Leaders in a time of crisis should not be sending messages to the public victimizing themselves.

Faculty Members at Virginia’s Washington and Lee University Vote to Change the University’s Name

The cultural genocide continues.

Published

on

The faculty members at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va. have voted to change the university’s name in order to appease the Black Lives Matter mob.

The motion will be sent to the board of trustees, who will be heavily pressured to take action. The faculty wants Robert E. Lee’s name removed from the university, as his name is getting dragged through the mud by marxist racial supremacist terrorists nationwide.

“The university’s name rests with its board of trustees, and there are no current plans to change it,” said university spokeswoman Drewry Sackett.

The university was named after George Washington, the nation’s first President who was an initial benefactor to the school, and Confederate General Robert E. Lee, a former university president who is buried in a chapel on campus.

Black faculty members have led the charge to change the school’s name, as they demand the rape of history because of their own personal racial fragility.

“It is worth exploring why the faculty has decided to make a collective statement on Lee and why the faculty has not included a demand to drop Washington in their petition,” associate professor of law Brandon Hasbrouck wrote in a letter. “It is no longer acceptable, profitable or convenient to be associated with Lee but it is for Washington.”

A motion was also put forward to remove Washington’s name from the university, but the faculty ultimately rejected the idea. The mob will have to come to destroy Washington’s legacy at a later date because the Overton Window has not moved that far quite yet.

Jim Casey, an economics professor, is intent upon using this moment in order to push radically toward the Left. That process begins with renaming the university.

“We feel like we’re going to end up on the wrong side of this as an institution and that it will harm us,” Casey said. “Everyone who was in that conversation feels that the best thing for our institution is to drop our affiliation with Lee.”

“It’s different in 2020 than it was in 2017 and we’re sort of back at the table with this particular issue. It was very clear to me in this conversation that faculty members, since the murder of George Floyd, have been thinking very, very seriously about a lot of these issues,” he added.

Zoila Ponce de Leon, an assistant professor of politics, made it clear that renaming the university will be just the beginning. The entire university must be transformed in order to kowtow to minorities.

“A name change is a symbolic gesture, but what we really need to invest our energy in is changing our behavior as faculty and students,” Ponce de Leon said. “The members of our community who come from diverse backgrounds don’t feel comfortable because of how we treat people — it isn’t just the name.”

The cultural revolution is being waged successfully across the country by the radical Left, and America is crumbling as a result.
