A White House statement called Bowser (D) “the radically liberal mayor of Washington, D.C.” and said she “ought to be ashamed for even suggesting” revisions to the marble monuments dedicated to presidents who were enslavers. “President Donald J. Trump believes these places should be preserved, not torn down; respected, not hated; and passed on for generations to come.”" Washpost (Bezos blog)
The hysteria rolls on. Will the Democrat and minority dominated city of Washington retreat from this absurdity? The picture is of the statue of Freedom depicted as an Indian woman. It stands on the dome of the capitol. Surely the DC government thinks this is "cultural appropriation."
Can we expect that the DC government will not return like a dog to its bone to the idea of re-naming federal owned property? I think not.
They will, of course want to re-name the District of Columbia itself. The names of Columbus and Washington must be removed (irony).
IMO the capital of the United States should be moved to somewhere out in the center of the country and the functions of government dispersed so that the federal government is not hostage to a minority dominated city. pl
