Marxists Purging History: NJ Removes Jefferson From Elementary School Name

One of the characteristics found in most fascist groups is an insatiable need to control the messaging going out to the population.

For example, ISIS in its attempt to erase all history that promoted non-Muslim religions and European nations’ accomplishments in Syria, etc, damaged and destroyed century-old relics.

Back in 2015, the Islamist militants in Iraq and Syria conducted a war on the region’s cultural heritage, attacking archaeological sites with bulldozers and explosives.

The destruction is part of a propaganda campaign that includes videos of militants rampaging through Iraq’s Mosul Museum with pickaxes and sledgehammers, and the dynamiting of centuries-old Christian and Muslim shrines.

Progressives in the United States have systematically taken over every major department of the federal government.

As part of their agenda, this woke mob is trying to create, in effect, a national safe space. They are trying to purge American history of anything that could trigger leftists.

Fox News reports:

An elementary school in New Jersey is changing its name after a successful year-long campaign to end its association with Thomas Jefferson due to his slave ownership.

Jefferson Elementary School in South Orange, New Jersey, is being renamed to Delia Bolden Elementary School to honor the first Black woman to graduate high school in the area, according to NJ Advance Media.

The name was selected by the student body from a list of choices. Many of the proposed names were of individuals related to the local area while others had no reference to a person living or dead.  Alternative choices included “Ruth Bader Ginsberg Elementary School” and “New Legacy Elementary School.”

“I want to make that point that Thomas Jefferson owned over 600 slaves,” board member Qawi Telesford said at a June meeting on the issue. “He freed two while he was alive and seven after he died, which basically means I have a 1.5% chance of being free in Thomas Jefferson’s world. So, I am not thankful to him. I am thankful to the people who made sure that I could actually be free and be on the board with you today.”

In addition, the military’s “Renaming Commission” is considering removing “Antietam”, the name of a Navy destroyer, which is included on the list of proposed deletions. Antietam was a Union victory, but it led directly to Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.

Air Force Times reported:

The Pentagon’s Confederate renaming commission is taking a look outside places and things named after individual Confederates, its chair told reporters Friday, to include anything named to honor the Confederacy.

Fort Belvoir and the guided missile destroyer Antietam have not before come up in the Confederate renaming discussion, but retired Adm. Michelle Howard said that the commission is taking a broad look.

Belvoir, originally the name of a plantation on which the post now sits, was dubbed Fort A.A. Humphreys when it became an Army installation in 1917. In 1935, it went back to Belvoir, at the request of a Virginia congressman who wanted to recognize the historical Belvoir plantation.

“We want to get to Fort Belvoir and dig more deeply into the historical context,” Howard said.

Similarly, she added, the guided missile cruiser Antietam is also under consideration because it’s named after a Civil War battle.

The problem with purging history is future generations will not have common markers in order to rally around.

This leaves them completely open to the ideas set forth by fascists grabbing power, IE, Adolph Hitler.

In addition, if history is purged then; ‘Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it. ‘ and it also said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
