PC Assault: Charlottesville City Council Removes Thomas Jefferson’s Birthday as a Holiday
Score another victory for political correctness.
On July 2, 2019, the Charlottesville City Council voted to remove Thomas Jefferson’s birthday, April 13, as a holiday.
It has now been replaced with Freedom and Liberation Day as a holiday, which will take place on March 3.
This move was approved on a four to one vote, with Kathy Galvin being the only “no” vote.
Adding Freedom and Liberation Day as a holiday was approved in a separate vote and received unanimous support from the city council.
Since the Charlottesville rally of 2017, cities across the nation have been removing confederate monuments left and right.
However, many conservatives’ fears are now being confirmed as the politically correct Left is targeting the Founding Fathers and other non-Confederate figures in their efforts to erase American history.
Even at the University of Virginia, located in Charlottesville, leftist activists want to remove a statue of George Rogers Clark, a general of the early days of the American Republic. The Charlottesville city council is even considering the removal of a Lewis & Clark statue as well.
This latest news shows that PC culture is moving in full force.
The Left is setting their sights on some of the most cherished figures in American history like Thomas Jefferson.
The PC floodgates are now open and it’s only a matter of time before movements like these make their way to red states.
American history is hanging in the balance.
