There is a public high school (secondary school) in San Francisco that is named for George Washington. A stairway therein features a large and IMO rather poorly painted mural executed by a Soviet Communist artist during the WPA period of FDR's attempt to spend the US out of the Great Depression. It is reminiscent of Orozco or Diego Rivera in a sadly inferior way. It focuses on the real or imagined defects of Washington's character and life. Some of it is nonsense. An example is the bit that shows Washington sending colonials to the West to settle the land over the bodies of slain aboriginals. Someone provide me a citation for G. Washington having created a program for that. The Left in San Francisco are divided over the issue of eradicating the mural. A white woman with a child of color screamed in a meeting at those who opposed her when she said that her child is traumatized by seeing the mural with its reminders of cruelty (irony) to people of color. Others want the mural to remain visible as a reminder of America's Original Sin (irony). Willy Brown, the former African American (AA) mayor of San Francisco is one of those. Brown himself is ironic in his insistence on his life of political oppression.
Pilgrims, Washington owned slaves. Slavery was a bad thing, much worse than living in Africa would have been (irony). Does this not make Washington a bad man (irony)?
If you peruse the lists below you will see that the evil (irony) descendants of the evil men (irony) who created the US named a multitude of places for the evil (irony) George Washington.
And then sadly, so many people of color bear the surname of the evil (irony) Washington. Actually I can recall having met only one White (evil) person with the surname Washington. But, sadly, senility (evil) may account for that.
Surely the memory of this evil (irony) man should be erased from any mention other than a list of history's villains (irony)
We should begin with the names of the state of Washington and the District of Columbia. Suitable names could be devised from among the stars in the pantheon of heroes revered by the Left. We could then proceed to eradicate the tyrant's (irony) name from American memory wherever it rears its unlovely head. pl
