$600,000 to paint over a mural of George Washington, huh?
Boy, does San Francisco have their priorities in order or what?
Once a liberal is offended, it’s game over. Everything has to change immediately.
Here’s the deal, per AP News:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco will spend up to $600,000 to paint over historical artwork at a public school depicting the life of George Washington, a mural once seen as educational and innovative but now criticized as racist and degrading for its depiction of black and Native American people.Trending:
The “Life of Washington” was painted by Victor Arnautoff, one of the foremost muralists in the San Francisco area during the Depression. The San Francisco School Board’s decision to paint over the 83-year-old mural is prompting some to worry that other artwork from the so-called New Deal era could face a similar fate because of changing sensitivities.
In addition to depicting Washington as a soldier, surveyor and statesman, the 13-panel, 1,600-sqaure foot mural at George Washington High School contains images of white pioneers standing over the body of a Native American and slaves working at Washington’s Mount Vernon estate in Virginia.
After spending decades in a private collection, a resurfaced letter written by America’s first president praises God for the ratification of the United States Constitution.
It is over 230 years old, dating back to 1788.
The price tag?
A cool $140,000.
From Fox News:
The letter to Richard Peters, speaker of the Pennsylvania House, is signed Sept. 7, 1788, and praises God for the ratification of the U.S. Constitution.
Written a week after Washington told Alexander Hamilton that he would likely accept calls to assume the presidency, the letter came at a time when the Constitution was under attack. Some states wanted to hold a second Convention that may have undermined the Constitution.
Zoom in to read:
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) is the mayor of gaffe city.
Noting that the age to run for president is 35 and Alexandria is only 29, a photographer said: “You can’t even run for president for another six years.“
Ocasio-Cortez: “No, not for a long time. Thank God. Although we’ve been joking that because the Equal Rights Amendment hasn’t been passed yet, the Constitution technically says he cannot run unless he’s 35. … So what we’ll do is we’ll force the Republican Party to pass the Equal Rights Amendment by threatening to run for president.“
Uh, Alexandria? The constitution does not say “he.”
As Playbook notes, the Constitution does not say “he” cannot run — it says “any person.”
According to Article II Section I of the Constitution:
No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.
The mayor of gaffe city, the governor D’oh!-ville strikes again – with a vengeance!
