Here’s Why the City of Austin is Considering Changing It’s Name (Hint: It’s Beyond Crazy)

Published

on

It’s cliche to reference George Orwell’s magnum opus, 1984. In fact, Dan Rather just did it to describe Trump’s regard for the media. Which is pretty ironic considering the MSM that Rather works for is a much better example of the propaganda machine of “The Party”, Big Brother’s shadowy government, depicted in the iconic work.

While Trump openly bashes specific media outlets that the majority of the American public has lost all faith in due to their blatant partisan politics and inability to objectively deliver the news, cities, counties, and states across the US are considering drastic measures to scrub their communities clean of any mention of the Confederacy or slavery.

The most extreme example we’ve seen yet, however, comes from the City of Austin, where the so-called Equity Office has proposed changing the city’s name as part of a city-wide politically correct re-naming makeover, because it’s founder, Stephen F. Austin, was apparently opposed to abolition.

The Austin New Statesman reports that the Equity Office, charged with rooting out any and all monuments honoring slaveholding Austin-ites and local supporters of the Confederacy, discovered that Stephen F. Austin, one of the fathers of Texas and the man who drew the states’ borders, “opposed an attempt by Mexico to ban slavery in the province of Tejas and said if slaves were freed, they would turn into ‘vagabonds, a nuisance, and a menace.'”

And so, the Equity Office suggested the city name “Austin” could go, though the Office admitted it would take an election, since the name would have to be “struck from the city charter and replaced.”

Altering Austin’s name is also far down on the list of priorities. The Equity Office considers the name “Austin” as a second-tier issue, to be considered after Austin’s citizens address a number of street names and local monuments that pay homage to questionable historical figures.

The city has already renamed Robert E. Lee Road and Jeff Davis Avenue, even though “a majority” of Austin’s residents “opposed the changes.” Up next on the chopping block are Dixie Drive, Reagan Hill Road, Sneed Cove, Confederate Avenue, and Plantation Road, as well as a series of historical markers “related to the Confederacy” that are on city property.

I can definitely understand why it may make many people feel uncomfortable to drive on streets or live in a city named for people who don’t reflect their values.

But in this highly divisive time, it’s certainly quite symbolic that so many Southern states are considering taking down statues and renaming streets, when those statues were erected and street names were given as part of The Great Reconciliation, an effort on the part of the Federal Government to unite the nation again under one flag.

Why, in the period following the greatest bloodshed in our nation’s history, at the hands of fellow countrymen who battled one another on our own soil, were they able to embrace the soldiers who literally succeeded from the nation, and today, we no longer want to even breathe their names?

There is also, of course, the danger of erasing history to the point where future generations aren’t aware of their own history. And you know what they say: those who don’t know their own history are bound to repeat it.

Biden At Final Debate: Nobody Lost Their Private Health Insurance Under Obamacare

Fact check: yeah, he lied.

We all know that Barack Obama promised health insurance would drop by $2500. He lied. He knew he was lying, as did Congressional Democrats and the MSM. They just didn’t care. All that mattered was keeping power. Period. At Thursday’s final debate between President Trump and Joe Biden, the former VP repeated the lie. He must’ve thought people wouldn’t notice. From Breitbart: During the presidential debate, Biden said he supports Americans’ access to private health insurance, asserting his public option plan would and Obamacare never forced Americans to lose their health insurance. Biden said, “I support private insurance; that’s why not one single person with private insurance would lose their insurance under my plan, nor did they under Obamacare. They did not lose their insurance unless they chose they wanted to go to something else.” In 2019, Biden said illegal aliens deserve to be taken care of by the American taxpayer. This is what he believes is a winning strategy, huh? From Daily Wire: Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden said during a campaign stop in California on Wednesday that the United States has an “obligation” to give healthcare to illegal aliens. Biden noted, “I think that anyone who is in a situation where they’re in need of healthcare, regardless of whether they are documented or undocumented, we have an obligation to see that they are cared for. That’s why I think we need more clinics around the country.” Biden dismissed the notion that many illegal aliens come into the United States illegally through the southern border despite the fact that immigration arrests along the border are at a 12-year high.

Kamala Harris Says ‘Over 220 Million Americans’ Have Died From COVID-19 — Watch

Hmm. Doesn’t sound right.

Kamala Harris is clearly spending too much time around Joe Biden. The two of them in charge of the Executive Branch would make America a laughingstock. Sound off in the comment section: how many Trump/Pence flags and signs do you see on a daily basis compared to Biden/Harris? Kamala’s latest video proves what a disaster she’d be as VP. WATCH: https://twitter.com/Ami_Magazine/status/1319241785374351361 Forget all the gaffes, brain freezes and racist quotes over the decades – at least for a minute. The worst thing Joe has ever done was choose radically Harris to be his running mate. Debatable or what? Check this out, via Daily Caller: MINNEAPOLIS — A bail fund promoted by Sen. Kamala Harris helped a man accused of sexually assaulting an eight-year-old girl get out of jail in July, according to court documents obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. The Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) also helped post bail in August for a man accused of assaulting a 71-year-old woman as he burglarized her home, court documents show. One week after his release the man was found to be in violation of his bail. The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office told the DCNF on Wednesday there is still an active felony warrant out for that man’s arrest. Kamala’s tweet from June… https://twitter.com/KamalaHarris/status/1267555018128965643 MORE: Minnesota prosecutors provided graphic details of [Timothy Wayne] Columbus’s alleged sexual assault of the eight-year-old girl in her mother’s home, records reviewed by the DCNF show. “Victim stated ‘Tim’ laid her on the couch and held her down as he unbuckled his pants and pulled down her pants. Victim stated he then ‘put his thing inside me,’” the statement of probable cause read. Considering Biden isn’t exactly all there upstairs, there’s a decent chance Kamala could play a bigger role than most VP’s – if they’re elected…
