Washington, DC will be renamed one day.
The White House will also be renamed the Black House. Columbus Day will be renamed Indigenous Peoples Day. The same is true of every city, town, county, lake and street in the country named after Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson and Christopher Columbus whose monuments will be torn down for celebrating “racism” and “white supremacy.” There will be nothing left of American heritage but politically correct idols of sacred blacks like George Floyd and Arthur Ashe left standing in the public square.
“A new congressional bill seeks to create a board to help rename more than 1,000 towns, lakes, streams, creeks and mountain peaks across the U.S. still named with racist slurs.
Why it matters: About 621 places have the word “negro” in them. New Mexico is home to a reservoir called Wetback Tank. The U.S. Board on Geographic Names oversees all naming decisions, but critics contend it’s overwhelmed and slow to rename places despite public pressure. …
What they’re saying: “We need to immediately stop honoring the ugly legacy of racism and bigotry, and that’s why I’m introducing the Reconciliation in Place Names Act with my colleagues,” Warren said in a statement.
“This is about ending egregious expressions of systemic racism and bigotry and taking a step toward dismantling white supremacy in our economy and society. It’s about building an America that lives up to its highest ideals.” …”
This is one of the goals of progressive activists.
How do we know this will happen? It is what happened in post-colonial sub-Saharan Africa which is the paradise that woke progressives want to replicate in this country. The assault on history and monuments and place names was one of the first steps taken to “decolonize” Africa.
The Democratic Republic of Congo and the Congo River were renamed Zaire and the Zaire River under Mobutu Sese Seko in the 1970s. Authenticité was the official state ideology of Mobutu’s Zaire. Blacks were required to wear traditional “African” clothes like the abacost. Zaire had its own black power flag. Monuments of European explorers like Henry Morton Stanley were torn down. Most famously, Léopoldville, Stanleyville and Élisabethville were renamed Kinshasa, Kisangani and Lubumbashi.
Don’t laugh at the analogy.
“Equity” has long been practiced in post-apartheid South Africa. Zimbabwe went through hyperinflation. Whites were attacked and driven out all over post-colonial Africa whether it was Algeria or Kenya or Mozambique or Angola. The worship of blacks as divine beings and the hatred and rejection of everything White and European is central to wokeness which is now the progressive religion.
This was Léopoldville in the early 1960s before the fall:
This was Stanleyville in the early 1960s before the fall of civilization. Both were flourishing modern cities and examples of “Tropical Modernism”:
This is Kinshasa or Kin-La-Poubelle (Kinshasa the Dump) in our times. It used to be known as Kin-La-Belle (Kinshasa the Beautiful) under Belgian colonialism:
Last month, we replaced July the 4th with Juneteenth. The Black National Anthem is replacing the Star Spangled Banner at sports events. New York’s probable next mayor Eric Adams wants to start renaming New York City streets and buildings that honor slave owners.
Note: You can see where this going.
