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.

Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds

Weren’t they peaceful protestors?

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.

Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”

Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”

We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover, demanded Governor Walz. We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.

The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.

In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
