Are you kidding me, San Francisco?!

This is a joke, right?

Apparently not.

According to the KUSI Newsroom (a local San Diego TV station), “San Francisco may remove President Abraham Lincoln’s name from a high school because some in the district say Abraham Lincoln did not demonstrate that “black lives mattered to him.”

Wait, what?!

“If you did not know, the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, abolished slavery.”

I think we all know that, unless you went to school in California, apparently.

“Lincoln was also assassinated for it.”

Again, I think we all know that, unless you went to school in California, apparently.

Are these people in San Francisco all on drugs, or are they all just idiots?

The answer, I believe, is “yes.”

“The San Francisco Chronicle reported, ‘Lincoln is one of dozens of historical figures who the city school district’s renaming committee argued led lives so rife with racism, oppression or abuse that their names should not grace its buildings.’”

“Their names should not grace their buildings?!”

I would vote to have Abraham Lincoln’s name removed because he doesn’t deserve to be associated with this embarrassment of a city!

“The SFUSD [San Francisco Unified School District] School Names Advisory Committee’s discussion on the name was made public on YouTube.”

Jill Tucker, of the San Francisco Chronicle, reports that, “Abraham Lincoln, once a hero, is now a bad guy in some S.F. education circles.”

“Abraham Lincoln, an iconic American hero, could soon be an outcast in San Francisco, his legacy called into question and his name ripped off a high school.”

“Lincoln is one of dozens of historical figures who, according to a school district renaming committee, lived a life so stained with racism, oppression or human rights violations, they do not deserve to have their name on a school building.”

“The debate reflects a nation in turmoil, a reckoning with a racist past that lingers today, toppling Confederate statues from town squares and eliminating a large number of Robert E. Lee street signs.”

Confederate statues and Robert E. Lee street signs are one thing…, and President Abraham Lincoln is a complete other thing.

‘“Uprooting the problematic names and symbols that currently clutter buildings, streets, throughout the city is a worthy endeavor,’ said Jeremiah Jeffries, chairman of the renaming committee and a first-grade teacher in San Francisco. ‘Only good can come from the public being reflective and intentional about the power of our words, names and rhetoric within our public institutions.’”

Again, apparently not.

The only “problematic” name I see here is “Jeremiah Jeffries.”

He should be dismissed and allowed to find work teaching in a fascist country elsewhere.

“But history is not always clear. People are complicated. Heroism and bravery can be obscured by beliefs and behaviors deemed abhorrent when viewed through a modern lens.”

Is “modern” a synonym for “neo-fascist” now?

“Was Lincoln one of the greatest presidents of all time who ended the country’s great shame or a whitewashed historic character with a questionable record related to Native Americans not worthy of memorials, school names and street signs?”

Let’s please recall that the Native Americans were a conquered people in America.  Keeping that in mind, I feel they have been given ample consideration they would not have received from any other country.

“When the committee released the 44 school sites to be renamed, many made sense. Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe were slave owners, and Vasco Nunez Balboa was a murderous conquistador.”

I really don’t care about Balboa one way or the other…, San Francisco is the place that chose to name a school after him for some reason, but Jefferson and Monroe?  Two of the founding fathers of our nation?  And, yes, they may have owned slaves back then, but it was legal then, and over 200 years ago.

“But perhaps the most controversial name on the list was Lincoln. Honest Abe. The Great Emancipator.”

I would say having George Washington on that list is just as disgraceful, if not more so.  

“His inclusion exemplifies the struggle in San Francisco and across the country to balance the good and the bad, in this case, the hero and the 19th century man with many faults.”

Please don’t try and pull the rest of the country into your liberal insanity.

And please, give me names of some people who don’t have any faults.

I’ll wait.

‘“I have so many reactions in the sense of looking at his entire record and the fact of what (Lincoln) did for Africans and slavery and the Emancipation Proclamation,’ said Sherry Black, who worked for more than 40 years in Native American economic and community development. ‘Considering the time period, it’s so difficult to understand how things were at the time. How do you make these decisions?’”

Pulling your head out of your backside would be a good start, Sherry.

“To many, Abraham Lincoln was one of the country’s greatest presidents, the Great Emancipator, a beloved historic figure as well as political mentor to his successors, including Barack Obama, who used the Lincoln Bible for his inauguration.”

Uh…, yeah.

I knew Obama was a closet racist!  He’s half white you know!

“Yet the renaming of Lincoln High School was a slam dunk for the committee, which didn’t even discuss it, according to video of the meetings.”

A “slam dunk,” and they “didn’t even discuss it?!”

Okay…, that’s it!  I’m officially requesting that California be thrown out of the union of states.

California should not be allowed to fly the American flag, and its citizens should not be considered “Americans.”

I mean, either you want to be a part of America or you don’t…, and California obviously doesn’t…, so, just get out then.  

“The members of the committee, appointed by the school board, deemed whether a person’s actions or beliefs met the criteria for renaming, and moved on. The committee’s spreadsheet with notes on their research listed the federal treatment of Native Americans during his administration as the reason.”

Let’s take a look at this disgrace of a school board!

Mark Sanchez, School Board President

Gabriela Lopez, School Board VP

Alison Collins, Commissioner

Stevon Cook, Commissioner

Jenny Lam, Commissioner

Faauuga Moliga, Commissioner

Rachael Norton, Commissioner

These people were all elected by the city of San Francisco.

“The discussion for Lincoln centered around his treatment of First Nation peoples, because that was offered first,’ Jeffries said. ‘Once he met criteria in that way, we did not belabor the point.’”

Again, let’s please recall that the Native Americans were a conquered people in America.  Keeping that in mind, I feel they have been given more than ample consideration that they would not have received from any other country.

“Jeffries, however, said the narrative of Lincoln’s legacy is false.”

Jeremiah Jeffries…, judge, jury and executioner.

He sure wields a lot of power for someone who teaches 6 year olds.

“Regardless of the pop culture myths of Lincoln and his motivations, the Civil War was not fought over slavery or the liberation of Black people, he said.”

Without President Lincoln, Jeffries would be in no position to even utter his “stupidness” at this point.

Just sayin’.

“The San Francisco School Names Advisory Committee used the following criteria to identify school names to be changed:

Anyone directly involved in the colonization of people

Slave owners or participants in enslavement

Perpetrators of genocide or slavery

Those who exploit workers/people

Those who directly oppressed or abused women, children, queer or transgender people [Does this include Joe Biden?]

Those connected to any human rights or environmental abuses

Those who are known racists and/or white supremacists and/or espoused racist beliefs.” [This would historically include most democrat politicians.]

“San Francisco’s district is considering changing the name of schools honoring the following people [this is really only about half of the school names being considered]:

Abraham Lincoln High School, U.S. president

George Washington High School, first U.S. president

Herbert Hoover Middle School, U.S. president

Roosevelt Middle School, Theodore or F.D., both U.S. presidents

Paul Revere K-8, American Revolution patriot

Alamo Elementary, the site of Texas Revolution battle

Garfield Elementary, James Garfield, U.S. president

Jefferson Elementary, Thomas Jefferson, U.S. president

Francis Scott Key Elementary, composer of ‘Star Spangled Banner’

Monroe Elementary, James Monroe, U.S. president

An unwritten criteria for this ignorant list, and the most important factor, apparently, is being a white male.

Just sayin’.

“For the renaming committee, [otherwise known as the “woke” Nazi propaganda ministry], one decision that met the criteria was enough.”

‘“We asked ourselves, did the name under consideration meet one or more of our criteria?  If that name met criteria, they were put on the list,’ Jeffries said.”

“At the same time, labor leader Cesar Chavez didn’t make the list {He was not white.], despite his feelings toward undocumented immigrants, who he called ‘wetbacks’ and other derogatory names. He encouraged his supporters to report them to the authorities for deportation.”

And he was against illegal immigrants too!!!

How did he possibly survive their hit list?!

I’m telling you…, the white male criteria is the overriding factor.

“Jeffries said no one on the committee offered evidence that Chavez met the criteria. He did not say whether anyone on the committee looked for any.”

Alrighty then!

“The committee is expected to formally recommend renaming the 44 school sites in January, which will also include an alternative name chosen by Jeffries and the other members.”

“School communities have an opportunity to suggest a new name this month.”

Ooooh, I can’t wait to see what names they come up with!

Fidel Castro?

Karl Marx?

Vladimir Lenin?

Joseph Stalin?

Mao Zedong?

Don’t laugh…, I’m serious!

I’m sure Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, and Eric Swalwell are high on their list of replacement names.

Oh, wait…, Schiff and Swalwell are white…, we need to take them off the list!   

“The school board is expected to vote on the recommendations early next year.”
