Liberals Gone Wild: James Madison Blacklisted on Constitution Day

Liberals continue their campaign to completely erase every last vestige of offensive content from the annals of American history.

And apparently pulling down statues of Confederate generals was just the beginning.

Now any individual, institution or event that has any association whatsoever with a ‘dark period’ in our nation’s history must be scrubbed.

Over the weekend members of the Dallas Independent School District circulated a list of schools whose names should be changed to fit with the white-washing (pun intended) campaign.

Among them was James Madison High School.

They clearly missed the irony in that the email came out on the weekend we celebrate the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, for which Madison has been dubbed ‘the Father of’ for his huge contribution to ensuring the debates on the Constitution both succeeded and were recorded for history.

Idiot liberals are running amok.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

On Saturday night, the evening before Constitution Day Sunday, a member of the Dallas Independent School District (ISD) Board of Trustees released a list of schools whose names should be reconsidered because of their association with the Confederacy or dark periods in American history. James Madison High School ranked on the list, suggesting that just as America was celebrating the 230th anniversary of the ratification of the Constitution, the “Father of the Constitution” would be considered too controversial for a school’s name.

Last Thursday, the administration of the DISD recommended changing the names of four elementary schools honoring Confederate generals: Albert Sidney Johnston, William L. Cabell, Stonewall Jackson, and Robert E. Lee.

Following the white nationalist riots in Charlottesville, Va., there has been a burgeoning movement to remove all monuments and reminders of the Confederacy from public view. This has also extended far beyond the Confederacy, with vandals even targeting statues of California missionary Junipero Serra and French Catholic Saint Joan of Arc.

Dallas and its mayor, Mike Rawlings, have become infamous for spending upwards of $450,000 to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee, despite the fact that at least one group (predominantly made up of African-Americans) warned that this effort is a “misguided” effort to “erase racism.” Recent polling has shown that removing these monuments is unpopular. Even so, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) warned of “turmoil and bloodshed” should Confederate monuments — including schools named after generals — remain standing.

During the DISD discussion about schools named for Confederate generals, it was mentioned that there was a much broader list, of at least 21 names, that bore further investigation and potential blacklisting.

Dustin Marshall, a DISD board member, released the list on Facebook Saturday evening. Number nine on the list should prove quite concerning, as it was none other than James Madison himself, America’s fourth president credited as the “Father of the Constitution.”
