In his first tweet, President I’m Not a Racist, I Only Defend them, defends former President Woodrow Wilson…
On June 27th, Princeton University announced that their Board of Trustees voted to remove President Woodrow Wilson’s name from their Public Policy center.
The trustees have concluded that Wilson’s racist thinking and policies make him an inappropriate namesake for a school or college whose scholars, students, and alumni must stand firmly against racism in all its forms.— Princeton University (@Princeton) June 27, 2020
From the linked statement:
As most of you know, the board previously considered whether to remove Wilson’s name after a group of student activists occupied my office in November 2015. The Wilson Legacy Review Committee conducted a thorough, deliberative process. In April 2016, it recommended a number of reforms to make this University more inclusive and more honest about its history. The committee and the board, however, left Wilson’s name on the School and the College.
The board reconsidered these conclusions this month as the tragic killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and Rayshard Brooks drew renewed attention to the long and damaging history of racism in America. Board Chair Weezie Sams ’79 and I spoke individually to members of the board, and it then met on June 26.Princeton University Statement. 06/27/2020.
The L.A. Times reported on June 27th, that Democrats in Orange County passed an emergency resolution condemning film star John Wayne for past racist and bigoted statements and are, “calling on the Orange County Board of Supervisors to drop his name, statue and other likenesses from the international airport.”
Ada Briceño, chair of the Democratic Party of Orange County is quoted as saying, “There have been past efforts to get this done and now we’re putting our name and our backing into this to make sure there is a name change.”
The statements by Wayne stem from an interview he gave to Playboy in 1971 in which he is quoted as saying, “I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.”
While speaking about Native American’s Wayne’s quoted as saying, “I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them. … [O]ur so-called stealing of this country from them was just a matter of survival,” he said. “There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.”
It’s reported he also used a gay slur when discussing the movies Easy Rider and Midnight Cowboy.
President Really Tone-Deaf moves on to brag about himself speaking in third-person, while calling voters “stupid,” for not being like the 95 percent of the Republicans that support him.
I get all of the pandering but this one, “Life,” what the hell does that mean, if we don’t support him we don’t want to see “Life?”
