Piotr Wilczek, Poland’s Ambassador to the United States, is livid about the acts of vandalism committed against monuments of Tadeusz Kościuszko and Casimir Pulaski in Washington D.C.
Kafkadesk reported that Wilczek was “disgusted and appalled” by such behavior. The statues commemorate two Polish national heroes who participated in the American Revolution. On May 31, 2020, the statues were defaced during a demonstration that’s part of a broader set of unrest taking place across the nation ever since George Floyd died last week.
“I am disgusted and appalled by the acts of vandalism committed against the statue of Thaddeus Kościuszko in DC, a hero who fought for the independence of both the US and Poland”, Piotr Wilczek said in a first post, before imploring the White House and the National Park Service to “quickly restore the statue to its original state”.
In a second Tweet, the Polish ambassador added that it was “regrettable that in the wake of these protests, many national monuments, as well as the statues of Polish heroes Pulaski and Kosciuszko, were senselessly defaced. The memory of those who fought for US independence and the abolition of slavery should be shown greater respect”.
Kościuszko and Pulaski were two Polish military commanders who participated in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth’s armed conflicts against Russia and Prussia. They sided with the American patriots in the American Revolutionary War. Kościuszko is a national hero in Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, and the United States and has had his name on numerous places and monuments around the world, on top of the one in Washington. Kościuszko is one of the most venerated individuals in Polish history.
Pulaski is revered as “the father of the American cavalry” and is one of only eight people to receive honorary United States citizenship. Polish-Americans celebrate Pulaski Day in Chicago on an annual basis.
The vandalization of these monuments show how iconoclastic the Left has become. It’s part of their politically correct agenda to wipe out American history. With how deracinated the U.S. has become, the very least we could do is to preserve our historical memory.
Foreigners like Pulaski and Kościuszko went above and beyond the call of duty by serving in the American Revolution. Their memories should be 100% respected.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
