A committee reporting to Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser has come
up with a list of dozens of historical monuments, schools, parks,
government buildings and other structures that it recommends making
changes to because of the historical namesakes’ connection to slavery
or racism -- even the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial.

Among the historical figures named on the list are former presidents
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson,
William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, Zachary Taylor and Woodrow Wilson.
The list also includes Founding Fathers Benjamin Franklin and George
Mason, inventor Alexander Graham Bell and composer of the national
anthem Francis Scott Key.

Jefferson Field, named for Thomas Jefferson, is among assets the
committee recommends “using existing District government processes” to
rename. So is Franklin School, named for Benjamin Franklin.

It recommends the Federal government “remove, relocate, or
contextualize” several very famous tourist attractions, including the
Washington Monument, the Jefferson Memorial and the Benjamin Franklin
Statue.

Looks like the civil war predictions I've been reading are right on
the money. If Biden is elected and these jackasses are given free rein
the United States is toast.

I would like to know exactly what these people want. Everyone knows
the founding fathers were slave owners. That is history and in the
past, it can't be changed.

Moving or destroying monuments won't accomplish anything, other than
pissing people off, and dividing this country even more.

What do they want? Socialism. I've posted a link several times to a
video of a Black woman, one of the founders of Black Lives Matter. She
clearly states that she and another founder are "trained Marxists".
Even more ominous ...
"New poll finds 70% of millennials say they're "likely" to vote for a
socialist" "Younger voters, saddled with record-high debt, are far
more likely to have a negative opinion of capitalism"
https://www.salon.com/2019/10/29/new-poll-finds-70-of-millennials-say-theyre-likely-to-vote-for-a-socialist/

The irony is that those Millenials are saddled with debt because
liberals gifted them with enormous student loans, and the cost of a
college education has risen to meet the amount available to pay for
it. For the Nth time -- Blacks have been pushed out of work by
astronomic liberal corporate taxes that drove manufacturing overseas,
a liberal open borders policy invited 11 million illegals to take
remaining Black jobs, and a liberal deal with Black women was forged
-- if you agree to have a baby we will give you a free project
apartment and a monthly check. Black children raised in fatherless
households have increased from 14% in 1940 to nearly 75% today.

But not to worry. Clueless Socialist liberals will sooner or later
gain control of the government, make a terrible mess of things, and
eventually get kicked out of office.
