Immediately after thugs in The South started tearing down Confederate monuments, a group of Liberals, Leftists, Anarchists and Snowflakes descended upon East Wenatchee, Washington, a town of just 13,000 located in the geographical center of the state, screaming “Hitler, Hitler, Hitler.”
In the 1950s, Eastmont School District built two new elementary schools. With a bow to America’s history, one was named Ulysses S. Grant and the other was named Robert E. Lee, despite the fact that Washington State was created long AFTER the Civil War. Both the school buildings and the school names exist to this day.
ANARCHISTS HAVE BEEN SCREECHING FOR FIVE MONTHS
You guessed it! Looney Leftists, mostly from other cities in Washington State, are DEMANDING that the name of Robert E. Lee be removed. The Left never “asks.” They get their way mostly via threats and/or subterfuge.
The school board meets once a month. Beginning with August’s meeting, Leftists from as far away as Seattle (150 miles) have attended, screeching and demanding that American history be wiped out. When locals got wind of this, they organized, too.
At the October 23rd school board meeting, the board members heard voices on both sides on this issue. There were over 4,000 signatures from LOCAL residents to KEEP the name, and just 643, mostly from outsiders, to change the name.
About 75 people attended the October board meeting. Board members listened to anyone who wanted to talk, and accepted the petitions. In the end, they voted to put the “name issue” before the voters in the next general election, in November 2018. This made the “change the name” crowd mad and the “keep the name” group happy.
Both sides knew, if the school board ignored the ones who scream the loudest, and allowed VOTERS in the district to decide, that it was likely the name would remain. Indeed, when Americans are allowed to decide, The Crazy Left usually loses.
LIBERALS HATE ALLOWING VOTERS TO DECIDE
The screaming and demanding has not stopped. A very small group of local Liberals, aided by professional Anarchists from outside the area, have continued to harass school board members and others, demanding they reconsider the October 23rd decision.
They have also been publicly questioning the legality of the decision-making process, even going so far as to lie. Now, there is a new tactic from Liberals. NOT!
Knowing full well that the October agenda listed the name change issue and invited citizens to attend, whiny Liberals are claiming that the decision to put the matter to a vote was made behind closed doors. Hopefully, this back room was not smoke-filled because Liberals hate smokers almost as much as they hate voters.
It was the Leftists who tried to circumvent the legitimate process, harassing and threatening the superintendent, the East Wenatchee mayor and others. That maneuver was somewhat successful as the superintendent reversed his previous stance. He showed up at December’s board meeting, proposing that “Robert E.” be dropped from the name, and he was backed up by the mayor.
The board was lukewarm about this “solution,” but they did put the issue on the January 8th board meeting agenda for discussion.
LIBERALS ARE SEETHING WITH RAGE, WANTING TO AVENGE 2016 ELECTION LOSS
Rage needs an outlet. Liberals have been seething with anger since last year’s presidential election and hunting for ways to vent their rage. Besides rioting in the streets and cooking up all kinds of faux narratives to harm the Trump Administration, they have focused on removing any trace of the historical figures they don’t like. This is EXACTLY what dictators throughout history have done.
Liberals are on a rampage to destroy America’s history, and won’t stop when General Robert E. Lee is purged from history. Like dictators throughout history, Liberals want to destroy cultural pride & morale, thus making it easier to control the masses.
At the October school board meeting the Liberals invoked Hitler’s name when they ran out of talking points. Poor Adolph, hanging with Liberals sure gives him a bad name. Like Germans 80 years ago, Liberals likewise want us to ignore what our own minds, hearts & intellect tells us to do, and blindly follow their lead as they destroy American history.
