Cancel Culture Comes For D.C. Monuments And Statues

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Hey, remember when Modern Socialists were telling people who objected to bad things on television that if they didn’t like it they should just change the channel? If the SJW cancel culture nuts don’t like these statues and monuments they can just not look. Or leave the country, since they seem to hate it so much

DC Panel Calls for Removing, Relocating, or ‘Contextualizing’ Washington Monument, Other Landmarks

A committee formed by D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser issued a report Tuesday recommending the removal, relocation, or contextualization of the Washington Monument and a number of federal monuments and buildings in Washington,DC.

Bowser formed the District of Columbia Facilities and Commemorative Expressions, or “DC FACES” committee in July, to study assets in D.C. named after individuals to “ensure these individuals reflect contemporary DC values,” according to the report.

The committee was asked to make recommendations if a namesake is “inconsistent with DC values and in some way encouraged the oppression of African Americans and other communities of color or contributed to our long history of systemic racism.”

The report recommended:

Using the Mayor’s position on the National Capital Memorial Advisory Commission, [to] recommend the Federal government remove, relocate, or contextualize the following assets:

1. Christopher Columbus – Columbus Fountain (federal)
2. Benjamin Franklin – Benjamin Franklin Statue (federal)
3. Andrew Jackson – Andrew Jackson Statue (federal)
4. Thomas Jefferson – Jefferson Memorial (federal)
5. George Mason – George Mason Memorial (federal)
6. Francis Griffith Newlands – Newlands Memorial Fountain (federal)
7. Albert Pike – Albert Pike Statue (federal)
8. George Washington – Washington Monument, George Washington Statue (federal)

The committee was made up of eight working group members and more than 20 staff members.

It focused on “key disqualifying histories, including participation in slavery, systemic racism, mistreatment of, or actions that suppressed equality for, persons of color, women and LGBTQ communities and violation of the DC Human Right Act.”

Bugger off. They also want to rename streets, buildings, schools, parks, roads, buildings, and so much more.

Exactly, Tom. And if the report is using the BLM street graffiti as its cover, it’s a hardcore exclusionary group with Marxist roots.

BTW, what are DC Values? Murder, theft, riots, arson? The District of Columbia has a crime rate of 3, meaning it is safer than 3% of US cities. The only metric that isn’t above U.S. averages is burglary. Heck, the U.S. average for crimes per square mile is 31.1. D.C.’s is 552.
