It Continues – California Moonbats Demand Robert E Lee Elementary School Change Its Name….

“Daisy Duke” shorts are now also considered racist.  Some cheerleaders have worn “Daisy Duke” shorts, therefore cheerleaders are now also racist….

Robert E Lee ElementarySAN DIEGO, Calif. – School across the country are reacting to a recent racially motivated church shooting in South Carolina by distancing themselves from the Old South.

Police believe 21-year-old Dylann Roof attended a bible study at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston June 17 before opening fire on a dozen people, killing a total of nine black men and women, and injuring one other, The Washington Post reports.

“Federal law enforcement officials said Roof, who is white, declared his hatred for black people before opening fire, and the U.S. Justice Department has said it is investigating the attack as a hate crime,” according to the Post.

Leading up to the attack, Roof posted pictures to social media of himself burning the American flag and holding a confederate flag – in one image also posing with a handgun, CNN reports.

In the wake of the deadliest racially motivated shooting in U.S. history, schools across the country are now attempting to do away with their connection to the confederacy, most recently in San Diego.

Tuesday, California Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez called on officials in the San Diego Unified School District to change the name of Robert E. Lee Elementary in response to the attack, Fox 5 reports.

Confederate-battle_240-animated-flag-gifs“The flag in particular, and anyone associated with this army, in general, have been associated with intolerance, racism and hate, none of which have a place in our schools,” Gonzalez wrote in a letter to SDUSD Superintendent City Marten.

“It is also important to note that the area in which the elementary school is located is truly representative of South San Diego – a vibrant, multi-ethnic community with a strong African-American presence that deserves a school named after someone we can all admire.

“Robert E. Lee is not that person.”

District officials did not respond to Fox 5’s request for comment, but instead issued a bland statement.

“We are sensitive to the concerns voiced by some members of the community that it may not be appropriate to have a school named after Robert E. Lee. We see this as a wonderful opportunity to have a larger community dialogue with students, staff and families about the school name and look at the history and research surrounding Lee in order to make a collectively informed decision about changing the name or retaining it,” the statement read.

    A repost of my comment in the Confederate Flag/SC post earlier:

    This is not about “slavery”, or “reparations” or what the South “really” seceded for – or anything else high on the BGI/Prog/Cultural Marxism hit list.

    This is about CONTROL. The demand for the removal of the Confederate Flag and Confederate symbols is the meta-argument.

    This is about ERASING one group’s collective memory and history and demanding that they conform to the new Regime’s belief system and cultural history.

    SYMBOLS can mean many different things to different people, depending on the context. Take for example a red rose, a white rose, a yellow rose. If you are English, that might mean to you to symbolize the two houses during the War of the Roses. If you are Texan, a yellow rose might mean pining for home. And so on. NO ONE has the right to tell YOU what any particular symbol MEANS to you.

    To the mouthbreathing, intellectually challenged professional grievance mongers like Deray, Nattering Jack and the rest of the cabal, THEY have decided that the Confederate Flag mean “hate” and “racism”. Now they demand that everyone else accept that definition as well. They demand to CONTROL your feelings, your opinions and re-define what is “accepted” as speech, as iconography, as “acceptable”.

    This WAR is all about who gets to set the definitions. Who gets to define what is News? Who gets to define what is a “hate crime” ? Who gets to define what is “acceptable” to say, online or in public, or – horrors – in academia. The list is endless. When you drill down, the issue is once again CONTROL.

    Ironically to the mouthbreathing basement dwelling pyjama wearing hot cocoa sipping Cultural Marxists Vanguard, the Confederate Flag is now viewed as SYMBOL of RESISTENCE worldwide. It’s being used by rebel factions in the Ukraine, in Georgia, in parts of Africa ….. and the height of irony, I saw a black African teen wearing a Confederate ballcap with a certain amount of swagger in his step in an immigrant neighborhood in Paris just this past winter.

    I guess no one gave that black youth the Official Memorandum:

    “The flag in particular, and anyone associated with this army, in general, have been associated with intolerance, racism and hate, none of which have a place in our schools,” Gonzalez wrote in a letter to SDUSD Superintendent City Marten.

    I was always sorta “meh” about the Confederate Flag beforehand, but I am certainly motivated now to kit myself in all manner of things Confederate-flagish. I may even silk screen a custom one-of-a-kind Confederate Flag Tee shirt for myself that announces, in bold, above it, “F*CK THE REGIME”.

    Don’t let them DEFINE anything for YOU, ever.

        New Orleans mayor, Mitch Landrieu( yes, THAT Landrieu family), has proposed removing the statue of Robert E Lee at Lee Circle. Funny how all races gather round this statue at Mardi Gras and not one word has been spoken about removing it until now. Way to stir the pot and get people angry. I think Mitch is upset that he nad New Orleans have not been able to get the attention that Ferguson, Charlotte, Baltimore, etc. have received.

          Actually Angie, I went to college in Nola and lived there for over 5 years and have had numerous discussions about the several slavery/confederacy related monuments in the city, including Jackson Square, which was at one point the largest slave port in the western hemisphere. Many people speak about these issues in different public media but any corrective action is muffled by the undercurrent of institutionalized racism in New Orleans.
          I’m not qualified to say whether or not Bobby Lee should be taken down, but a public monument shouldn’t celebrate polarizing and antiquated ideologies of the past that are not inline with public opinions about foundational issues of our democracy in the present. Public monuments like Lee Circle in cities like New Orleans with such racially charged histories (Plessy v. Ferguson, 1892) should celebrate our country’s ability to transcend foundational inequality and create a better society for human beings regardless of race.

          Not to mention, New Orleans is a much better place to visit than any of those cities. We’ll take pride in the jazz and food and not the size of our ignorant race riots 🙂

              Pol pot’s agrarian communes = modern American malls, schools & welfare offices.
              Intellectuals & urbanites were wiped out, as they were a source of opposition.
              In modern America, white women with babies are openly beat by packs of thugs and the official silence says everything one needs to know. The roving bands of thugs may reasonably be construed to be acting as enforcers of whatever fevered vision of “new world order” from 1600 Penn, as he has not made any statement against these efforts… consider if you will the similarities in relationship between the thug bands and the regime that came after 1933 in Germany.

    I was in Washington D.C. for Memorial Day weekend. I’m guessing the BGI will be going after all history related to the civil war soon. I expect the Robert E. Lee Memorial/House will be protested against and torn down. Isn’t that what is happening here? Destroying history and free speech because protesting and rioting are popular these days?

    If they were really going after slavery and racism, I suppose they would start dragging the names of our founding fathers through the mud. Weren’t a lot of them slave owners?

    The sad thing is that even if every monument representing our early history was torn down, every face/picture on our money changed to someone black, every political and CEO position filled by someone black, and millions of money given to blacks for “social and cultural improvement”…. they still would want more, demand more, and anyone that gets in their way is racist, hateful, and un-American. Not to mention that these demands would be more like threats. If the demands are not met, damage will follow.

    Aren’t we seeing that now anyway? “No justice, no peace.” Isn’t that a call for violence if they don’t get their own way? In Baltimore, the Mayor responded by giving them space to destroy. In other cities, police are told to stand down, not pursue, not arrest, and never use force.

    JFK once said that you shouldn’t ask what the country can do for you, but what you can do for your country. It wasn’t very long ago that he said such a thing. We’ve changed a lot since those days. The U.S. flag is being walked all over, the Constitution is being threatened, the media reports agendas and narratives instead of the news, the White House is never responsible for its actions, and mobs are running the streets without fear of reprisal or arrest.

    “I’m proud to be an American.” … that’s tough to say these days.

    The “Law of Unintended Consequences” is about to kick in and the Confederate flag and Confederate memorabilia are about to become more popular than ever. There’s something deep in the DNA of Americans that takes umbrage at being told what they can and can’t say, buy or do. Millions of folks never owned, wanted to own or even gave a minutes thought about Confederate flags until the retail PC lemmings essentially declared them contraband. Now you’ll see more and more private citizens flying, displaying and collecting these items, not as an endorsement of slavery or racism, but because they express the politically-important words-“F*** You.”
    The real outrage should be targeted at the cowardly corporate weasels (and state governments) who tolerated, promoted and became enriched by these symbols for decades and just this week decided these symbols had to go-IMMEDIATELY IF NOT SOONER! The real question is not “why,?” it’s “why now?” And the answer is blatant hypocrisy, double-standards and greed, not any racial or social concern. According to their own definition, up until last week they peddled racist merchandise like there was no tomorrow and this week they want us to pat them on the back for being courageous bastions of social concern and racial healing. I call bullshit.
    Retail sites like Amazon, Ebay, Wal-Mart and online
    handmade-item stores such as Etsy had no problem with this merchandise until last week. They made millions upon millions of dollars profit from items they now condemn and eschew. Why was this not an outrage 2 weeks ago? And if it’s an outrage now, why don’t they retroactively forfeit all profits and give them to a fund for the Charleston victims? Because it’s not got a damn thing to do with Confederate flags or merchandise. It’s self-aggrandizing posturing, as though there are actually those in the south who argue that slavery should be brought back.
    The Iranian flag is sold on Etsy and Ebay. Isn’t the Iranian flag a symbol of hate given how Iran’s leadership talks of destroying Israel? Mein Kampf is sold on Ebay. Islamic propaganda is routinely sold through Walmart, Etsy, Ebay, and Amazon. One could ask why they haven’t taken a stand to stop selling Islamic propaganda in reaction to massacres committed in the name of Islam. More people have been murdered in the name of Islam than in the name of the Stars and Bars, yet the Confederate flag is banned as a hate symbol but the Quran isn’t.

      A tiny minority of a minority is allowed to dictate to the majority.

      This was the fundamental operating manual of the British and Dutch colonial management. Take over, foment dissent and division within the native population, and then put a minority in charge of the bureaucracy designed to manage the “colony”. This template was in place in Iraq right up to the 2014 invasion.

      However, it only works as long as the majority feels they have to follow the “rules” the bureaucracy sets, executed/managed by a tribal minority. Once the majority begins to assert their status, it all falls apart. Badly.

    …presence that deserves a school named after someone we can all admire

    “Robert E. Lee is not that person.”

    Along those lines, I propose that every single school, street, avenue and boulevard named after Martin Luther King be renamed. He was a communist sympathizer who plagiarized his speeches and theses, and falsely claimed to advocate for “peaceful” demonstrations. In fact, he was a outspoken agitator whose ideology aligned perfectly with the violent radicals who were rioting and burning American cities during the 1960s.

    For them and King, the civil rights movement was never about “racial equality” but was, instead, ALL about black supremacy achieved through the creation of a “protected class” that continually demands more and more reparations, no matter how many “entitlements” they bilk from the American treasury.

    I am deeply offended every time I see a statue of that fraud, drive on a street named after him, or see children attending a school bearing his name. Even worse, once a year I am expected to “honor” him by observing MLK Day. Ugh. What a barf fest. Why do we allow ourselves to be forced into honoring a man who would have been thrilled to see America delivered into the hands of Communist oppressors?

At any rate, I’d like to see that evidence and am willing to change my opinion should it be presented. It would be curious.

    This is starting to bother me… a lot. While I of course understand that SOME of the reasons the Civil War occurred are open to serious debate, I also understand that there were “good guys” and “bad guys” on BOTH (or should probably say ALL) sides of that conflict. And of course there was a long history of issues (both north and south) that came AFTER the war.

    But even if we were to declare that the South was 100% totally wrong, and the North was 100% totally right (a belief I absolutely do NOT hold!), the demonization of that flag, and by extension, EVERYONE who fought under it… well, it’s just leaving a bad taste in my mouth. Was every German soldier in WWII an evil person who wanted to burn Jews in ovens? NO!!! Was every Confederate soldier in the Civil War a person who wanted to lynch innocent Blacks? NO!!! I’d guess that in those wars and many others throughout history, the vast majority of soldiers, even on the supposed “wrong” side of the war, were fighting NOT for some kind of ideology… but simply for their own town, their home, their family… mostly just trying to stay ALIVE long enough to get back home. So to me, telling these people they should be ASHAMED for fighting under a given flag is pretty offensive.

      The current battle is that the Progs define the framework of the discussion and dictate the appropriate response. A key component of this is the need to have the other side become defensive and try to justify their beliefs and/or actions.

      And the Conservatives fall for it, every.single.time. Andrew Breitbart and Bill Whittle are two Conservatives that refuse to hand them that victory.

        Removing Lee’s statue is going to generate enormous blowback. That’s not going end well.

          FWIW, I stopped reading Breitbart after the Trayvon Martin debacle. Joel Pollack rushed to print an urban legend about “black profiling” which fit the template ginned up by Julison, claiming that the incident happened to a “friend” …. and even when confronted with numerous versions of this same urban legend about police profiling black teens that pre-dated the Trayvon debacle, he refused to retract or apologize. In fact, it’s still up there in their archives as “fact”.

          I refuse to read or support disingenuous people, especially ones that work hard to support our enemies and pander to the grievance industry.

      The main motivation for the lowly Reb was most likely hatred of Yankees from Boston and New York. The feeling us still mutual ot seems.

      The main motive for the French Poilu was that German troops were in Lille and around Verdun and attacking Paris. The two nations have gotten over their differences.

    Reconstruction, Pt 2. Are Southern Whites, many of whom had ancestors who fought and suffered in that war, to be humiliated again? Are they permitted no heroes? Robert E Lee was an honorable man and deserves a school named after him. Obviously they are not teaching real history in schools anymore, or people would know that.

    What are they going to call it – Caitlyn Jenner Academy?

    Of course they would hate Robert E Lee : “After the war, as President of what is now Washington and Lee University, Lee supported President Andrew Johnson’s program of Reconstruction and intersectional friendship, while opposing the Radical Republican proposals to give freed slaves the vote and take the vote away from ex-Confederates. He urged them to rethink their position between the North and the South, and the reintegration of former Confederates into the nation’s political life. ”

    Reconciliation has never been the tactic of radicals. (PS there are many report that Lee was not in favor of slavery.)

    (BTW the informal poll of Chanell 5’s website is running 70%-30% in favor of NOT changing the name. Maybe, finally, people will get sick off this BS.)

      I hope people realize what this really is. It is the Obama Cultural Revolution. Modeled after his hero Mao Zedong.

      The Cultural Revolution, formally the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, was a social-political movement that took place in the People’s Republic of China from 1966 until 1976. Set into motion by Mao Zedong, then Chairman of the Communist Party of China, its stated goal was to preserve ‘true’ Communist ideology in the country by purging remnants of capitalist and traditional elements from Chinese society, and to re-impose Maoist thought as the dominant ideology within the Party. The Revolution marked the return of Mao Zedong to a position of power after the Great Leap Forward. The movement paralyzed China politically and significantly affected the country economically and socially.

        A generation is unaware of what Baby Boomers like myself remember about China – the mandatory mass rallies with all waving the little red book, how everyone wore the same genderless clothes, how dissenters were persecuted, publicly humiliated, and killed on a vast scale, how science and history and the arts were obliterated for political correctness, and massive lies propagated to disguise the famine and misery. China’s great past was censored as elitist. I thank God they did not destroy as much of their great heritage as the Islamists have.

        I found Mrs Mao a fascinating character, has much in common with Michelle, such as an obnoxious loud mouth and very bad taste, except that she was a beauty in her youth.

    The city of Seattle is in King county. The county was originally named after William Rufus King who was Vice-President when the Washington Territory was created. In 1986, a motion was introduced to change the namesake to Martin Luther King, Jr. No public votes or hearings were taken on the change.

    On February 24, 1986, the King County Council passed Council Motion 6461 five votes to four setting forth the historical basis for the renaming of King County in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Because only the state can charter counties, this change was not made official until April 19, 2005, when the Governor signed Senate Bill 5332 into law.

    The County Council submitted a vote to the public on February 27, 2006 to change the county’s logo from a royal crown to an image of King. On March 12, 2007, the new logo was unveiled.

    All this because William Rufus King (a democrat) had a cotton plantation that used slave labor.
