Thomas Jefferson, George Mason Banned From Building Names

Here at Reclaiming America, some news just makes us shake our heads with sadness and disbelief at the way traditional American values are being destroyed. This is one of those reports.

**********

A Virginia school district board unanimously voted on Tuesday to remove the names of Thomas Jefferson and George Mason from two of its schools,” according to The College Fix.

In a statement, the Falls Church City Public Schools said the decision came about after a “six-month-long process” including public hearings, “hundreds of submitted written public comments” and a community survey.

“School Board Chair Greg Anderson said the board “took seriously the viewpoints and concerns raised by many students, parents, staff, and community members,” and it now will “begin selecting names that reflect the diversity of opinions in our community.”

“Anderson added: “Our schools must be places where all students, staff, and community members feel safe, supported, and inspired.”

According to WTOP, the board’s 7-0 vote came despite an average of 56 percent of the school community opposing the name changes.”

    I don’t see the left taking Robert Bird’s name down. He was in the KKK, and fought integration. Oh, now I remember…he was a democrat.

    George Mason stood for freedom from slavery of all humanity – so that included those with black skin color. Hooray for him. He understood that ALL men were inherently due their freedom from being enslaved and their right to choose and create their own jobs and means of living in harmony with other humans. He was a hero in his time. So I’m not sure why anyone would be averse to having his name used in honor of this.

    As for Thomas Jefferson, his main concern was freedom for our country to be constituted free from the rule of any other country. Bravo to him for seeking out and applying how to unify those in the new land, the United States, in standing on their own from the rule of foreign lands.

    Why don’t they just throw out all the history books too! What happened to majority rules! It’s time for them to listen to the majority of Americans not just 13 percent! Speak up and make your voices heard!

  5. Don Butler says:

    This is really sad both of these guys were great men. The only thing George Mason did wrong was refuse to sign the Constitution because he didn’t agree with some parts of it. Jefferson as far as the times were concerned did not do anything wrong.

    OH GEE, are they going too change the names to MLK or George Floyd? The biggest mistake this country ever made was back in 1865 when they didn’t ship ALL Blacks back to Africa. Just imagine how wonderful our country would be today if they had done that. Fat Oprah would be running around with a grass skirt and topples in some village right now pleasing all the males on her knees.

    they don’t care how the community feels. They need to get their lard asses kicked out of the school board. Do as I say !

  8. Dana says:

    These people in Virginia are clueless about our great American history and the amazing Thomas Jefferson. They should be ashamed of themselves for such ingratitude.

  9. Bill says:

    The fed needs to remove all the money in that district that has Thomas Jefferson on it.

  10. Jim Laumann says:

    I’m against the idea that the school is getting rid of the founders of this country.

  11. JJ says:

    I won’t bless these people. I hope they all go straight to hell. They are ruining our country and our history. They can take Biden and Harris with them.

  12. Rodney Boone says:

    These people probably would prefer communism to any other sort of Govt. No way are they 1 / 10th as smart as they think they are. Disgusting.

  13. kkw says:

    Another ‘tearing down’ of our History and the people who helped create America. Shameful!

  14. Faithful says:

    These people are not patriots. All this is History and should be taught in all schools.
    May God have mercy on them.
