Remember When Trump Tweeted About Where the Confederate Statue Removal Would Go?

10/28/17 Fox News:
Leaders at the church that George Washington attended decided that a plaque honoring the first president of the United States must be removed.
Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia will take down a memorial marking the pew where Washington sat with his family, saying it is not acceptable to all worshipers.
“The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome," leaders said, a reference to the fact that Washington was a slaveholder.

Once again showing how ignorant progressives are of history.  Of course, this is only a problem if you think ignorance is a bad thing.



    And too many people see 1984 as a how-to manual rather than as a cautionary tale.

    Also, it seems to me that taking down memorials to George Washington is a slap against the ex-slaves who, after the Civil War, took Washington's name for their own.

  2. When do they lobby to change the name of the nation's capital? And what new name will they suggest?

  3. Well, INGSOC does teach us that "Ignorance is Strength".
