In yet one more ridiculous instance of “woke” ideology and makes an attempt to erase American historical past, Jefferson Elementary College in New Jersey is altering its identify after a year-long effort to rid the varsity of its affiliation with the writer of the Declaration of Independence.
Why? As a result of Jefferson owned slaves.
The South Orange college’s new identify can be Delia Bolden elementary. It is going to take the identify of the primary black girl within the space to graduate from highschool.
However but democrats maintain ripping down statues, renaming colleges and altering names on authorities buildings. Feels like democrats are hiding and working away from historical past

Elementary College Kids Tremendous Woke?
In keeping with Fox Information, the brand new identify was chosen from an inventory of native historic figures and different, unrelated names.
One of many proposals, curiously not chosen, was “Ruth Bader Ginsburg Elementary College.” Oddly, “Ronald Reagan Elementary College” didn’t seem on the choice checklist.
The varsity itself claims that the transfer was a yr lengthy initiative by the scholars. However one can surmise that 7-year-olds have been most likely not the driving pressure behind the woke initiative.

One college board member, Qawi Telesford, stated:
“I need to make that time that Thomas Jefferson owned over 600 slaves. He freed two whereas he was alive and 7 after he died, which mainly means I’ve a 1.5% probability of being free in Thomas Jefferson’s world. So, I’m not grateful to him. I’m grateful to the individuals who made positive that I might truly be free and be on the board with you immediately.”
A reminder, once more, that Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence and was instrumental in releasing America from the yoke of King George.
How about educate our children with expertise they want for the longer term as an alternative of renaming colleges. Why do taxpayers need to spend cash on that? Cease with the revisionist historical past. Our previous isn’t our future. Cease dwelling on it and transfer on.

Down With Founders, Up With Drug Sellers
The apply of tearing down statues of Christopher Columbus and the Founding Fathers is a fashionable trend with the left. What goes up of their place inform you all the pieces it’s worthwhile to find out about what’s vital to liberals, be it actual or fictitious.
Lately, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, statues of the principle characters of the hit TV present “Breaking Dangerous” have been unveiled. The present was a few highschool chemistry trainer and one in all his college students, and their experiences as meth cooks and sellers, with a couple of murders thrown in. Over 200 murders, truly.
To some it may appear an off option to glorify. The main causes of drug overdoses within the Land of Enchantment in 2020, the newest statistics accessible, have been meth, fentanyl, and prescription opioids.
What did the fellows from “Breaking Dangerous” change? Historical past after all. For some a distasteful historical past, however historical past nonetheless. The statue of Juan de Onate. He’s most recognized for the Spanish colonization of New Mexico, and was the primary colonial Governor.
Final September in New York Metropolis, statues of Teddy Roosevelt and Thomas Jefferson came down. Of their place, civil rights activist and former Congressman John Lewis, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd.
And who might overlook the woke mob in Madison, Wisconsin tearing down a statue of Hans Christian Heg? That man was a Norwegian immigrant and abolitionist who gave his life as a Union soldier.
That is why we’re tearing statues down throughout the nation https://t.co/EbDnyQ3IeD

When The Left Fights Every Different
It does get quite amusing when the left choose a fight with each other to see is the most woke. Again in April of 2021, Waukegan, Illinois additionally needed to rename two colleges that bore the identify of Thomas Jefferson and Daniel Webster.
All have been on board with the identify change, till the board instructed renaming one of many colleges after former President and Chicago native Barack Obama. The largely Latino group in Waukegan vehemently objected, citing Obama’s report of deporting unlawful immigrants. In the end in that case, the schools were renamed after Lewis, and Edith Smith, who fought to desegregate Waukegan colleges.
As so many immediately describe what is happening in America as “Orwellian,” or “one thing out of 1984,” George Orwell could have been prophetic in regards to the finish purpose of the left.
He stated, “Who controls that previous controls the longer term. Who controls the current controls the previous.”
Republicans erasing the previous? I do not suppose it was Republicans knocking down statues or renaming colleges of buildings since 2020, particularly throughout the riots. A few of the statues have been reminders of our previous so we did not repeat it, whereas others have been of creators of this nice Nation
