A Tennessee women’s prep school is ending its tradition of a yearly George Washington celebration, turning its back on the founding father and first American President by cancelling the event.
The yearly celebration of Washington’s birthday is a tradition of the Harpeth Hall prep school in Nashville, Tennessee, that dates back to 1913.
Jess Hill, the head of the school, explained the institution’s decision to end the tradition in an email to the Tennessee Star. She asserts that the Washington birthday celebration “is not consistent with or relevant to the way that we teach history today,” “does not demonstrate the significant role that women, people of color, and other underrepresented groups play in our nation’s history,” and that “A growing number of students, faculty, staff, and alumnae are expressing their discomfort with this tradition.”
Some students and faculty of the private prep school had apparently been agitating against the continuation of the Washington birthday event for some time.
The tradition began when students of the school put on a social event intended to reenact the lives of the founding fathers, such as Washington. The final iteration of the event has taken place in February 2020, and there’s a possibility that the event will be replaced with an substitution holiday to celebrate liberalism.
Rioters in Baltimore also defaced a statue of the first U.S. President over the weekend, vandalizing the image of the President with the words “destroy racists” written in red paint.
The founding fathers and iconic Presidents of the United States no longer have a place in ‘polite’ society according to the affluent cultural elite, instead opting to replace the great men with a stifling culture of political correctness and cultural authoritarianism.
Tennessee High School Principal Suspended for Speaking Against Big Tech Censorship
Welcome to an Orwellian hellworld.
The principal of a Tennessee high school has been suspended from his duties for daring to criticize the unprecedented censorship enacted by Big Tech companies against President Donald Trump earlier this month.
Principal Barton Thorne of Cordova High School in Memphis had been speaking in a teleconference in which he condemned the riot at the US Capitol. Throne also slammed the censorship that followed the event, comparing Twitter and Facebook’s censorship to Joseph McCarthy’s sham accusations in the 1950’s.
“There have been times even in American history where a small group of people decided what you could hear. You think about “McCarthyism. If you don’t know about that, you can Google that or talk to your Social Studies teacher,” said Thorne.
“It’s what’s going on with Twitter and Facebook and Google and Apple, and their decision as private companies to filter and to decide what you, you hear and know about.”
Thorne was almost immediately suspended by the Shelby County School district, pending an official “review” of his totally innocuous comments. Thorne later drafted an email apology, bowing for his transgression against the authority of tech oligarchs.
The American education used to instill the values of free speech and political liberty in those it taught. Fidelity to such concepts have been cast to the wayside, sidelined in favor of indoctrination into the American elite’s racial caste system and liberal ideology.
