D.C Mayor seeks to remove the names of white men from government buildings in Washington

A Washington, DC committee formed by Mayor Muriel Bowser has recommended changing the names of schools and government buildings and has even called for the federal government to “remove, relocate or contextualize” a group of federal memorials and monuments, including the Washington Monument, the Jefferson Memorial, and the Benjamin Franklin Statue. Bowser’s committee, the District of Columbia Facilities and Commemorative Expressions (DC FACES), submitted the final executive report Monday (August 31, 2020).

The report covered surveys of DC’s named, government-owned buildings (libraries, schools, rec centers, etc), parks, statues in DC Government-owned parks, miscellaneous other named public spaces, and even city streets. The committee cataloged the race of people whose names appeared and discovered that fully seventy percent of government properties were named after white people. It is these people whose names are slated for erasure. Just a sample of the names is enough to demonstrate the level of racism and hatred being directed at once prominent white people.

Bowser took to Twitter to announce her pleasure with her committee’s recommendations,saying, “”I look forward to reviewing and advancing their recommendations,”

The return tweets from her detractors in response were quick to respond .Interior Secretary David Bernhardt tweeted that no changes were going to happen as long as he was in office. “Not on my watch. Never going to happen,” he tweeted.

The White House also responded to the committee’s report.

“By publishing a plan that recommends potentially removing the Washington Monument, Christopher Columbus Statue, Andrew Jackson Statue, and Jefferson Memorial—among many other ludicrous recommendations—the radically liberal mayor of Washington, D.C., is repeating the same left-wing narrative used to incite dangerous riots: demolishing our history and destroying our great heritage,” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement.

“Our Nation’s capital is rightly filled with countless markers, memorials, and statues to honor and respect the men and women who built this country. President Donald J. Trump believes these places should be preserved, not torn down; respected, not hated; and passed on for generations to come. As long as President Trump is in the White House, the mayor’s irresponsible recommendations will go absolutely nowhere, and as the mayor of our Nation’s capital city—a city that belongs to the American people—she ought to be ashamed for even suggesting them for consideration,” McEnany concluded.

It’s illegal to murder people too, but we are seeing this often. I would love to know how many innocent people have been murdered during the pandemic/Antifa organized events.

You know what will come next: Our Constitution was written and approved by evil white men, so it must go too. The Bill of Rights will be flushed down the toilet and replaced with a bill of each individual’s responsibilities to the state.

We should really pity those who sense how meaningless and futile their existence is, and the only response they can muster is to try to eradicate the memory of greatness. What a burden must life be when every morning you wake up and you’re Muriel Bowwowser!

Think you can re-write history? Think you can cancel culture? The rise and fall of socialist/communism on the grand scale in the old USSR lasted 70 years…..and still falls damper over todays’ “Russia.” They still can’t dig out of its effects. They strut on the world stage with bravado, but have less than the economic power of the one state of CA in the USA (and these days….not saying much). China once canceled their past and present and destroyed their future with a cancel culture that destroyed their agricultural abilities with their tactics that guaranteed a “silent spring.” All the… Read more »

Black people will be sorry if their democrat masters get into power. Once there, the white dems will do the “purge”, just like Stalin when his useful idiots came for what was promised.
