Just look at what happened Tuesday night in, of all places, a Zoom meeting of the San Francisco School Board. In that meeting, members voted to strip the names of American historical figures — George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, and even California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein — from schools in San Francisco. A removal effort that started with Confederate generals, and then moved on to the Founding Fathers, has now moved on to…Dianne Feinstein? Yes, it has. And it shows no sign of slowing anytime soon.

    American Indians (First Nations) were, arguably, more pro-Confederate than pro-Union.

    President Trump was exactly right. He told us so, and too many conservatives took that as another occasion to smear him and his supporters.

    I wonder if the San Francisco schools will ever reopen for educational purposes.  I can see them reopening for childcare and free food purposes, but parents who want their children educated will either have to move or budget for private school tuition.  The SF NPR affiliate is airing advertisements for a private school!

    Brutal. Thanks for sharing that. 

    It’s so obvious they should just cut a check to the parents for education. The aggregate value would go straight up. This is a nightmare for society.

    “All politics is local” said the former speaker of the US House of Representatives Tip O’Neill and this is the case here. If you look up (I used Wikipedia) the San Francisco School Board, you’ll see who was elected. They hold four year positions. They are all very liberal and their backgrounds speak for themselves.

    Young “community activists” like AOC are the ones changing the political landscape to look more like a socialistic/communistic society.  Erase all past history, control the media and smear people based on in this case, something Feinstein did back in the 1980’s.  It’s absurd and scary, because we see it spreading rapidly, like a virus – even the re-education and indoctrination of children. 

    What does this say to the children in San Francisco? Like Mr. York describes, it morphed into the vote to remove 44 historical names all with blank nods, with one dissenter. Whose idea was it? They are smearing former President Trump and all those who were associated with him, even voted for him.  The labeling and shaming and targeting people is right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook, the political manual used by all good community activists, including Obama and Hilary. Notice how many former Obama officials are being reinstated into the new administration, and are serving on the WEF Great Reset.  John Kerry himself, before he was even named planet czar, told the leadership of the World Economic Forum that the implementation of the Great Reset will happen very quickly, much quicker than people realize.  How would he know that? You can view his speech on their site.  

    This erasing of our history is part of that Great Reset. Getting back to this renaming of schools, California has their priorities backwards, and their residents, as is Portland’s, are suffering for it. We need to pay attention to this story.
