Bring Back Stonewall Jackson (High School)!

During the 2020 Summer of Love, progressives were orgiastic about tearing down traditional American society. The low hanging fruit had always been Confederate history.

2020 was just a continuation of 2015 and 2017. Of course, no one could identify how a school named for Stonewall Jackson in the Shenandoah Valley affected police officers in Minnesota, but that didn’t matter.

What mattered was that the woke cultural Marxists had the advantage, or so they thought.

A local school board in the Shenandoah Valley decided to change the names of two schools in the district named for Confederate heroes, the most conspicuous being Stonewall Jackson High School, built in 1959.

To brain dead wokies, the high school was named as a symbol of “massive resistance” following the Brown v. Board of Education decision in 1954. When I say brain dead, I mean it.

Jackson’s valley campaign is still studied at West Point. He was a native of Virginia, and the people of the Shenandoah Valley certainly remember Sheridan’s burning in 1864, one of the most egregious crimes against civilians during the War.

If any school deserved to be named Stonewall Jackson, it was that one.

But the school board voting to change the name anyway. No one really knows why. Even the meetings were dominated by those in opposition.

Now, after a concerted effort on the part of native Virginians and alumni of the school, the names might be restored. It still appears to be a long shot, but it is real “think locally, act locally” in action.

And the dopes on the left can’t stand it.

You see, this is “anti-democratic.” You can’t make up their kind of stupid, but you don’t need to. They proudly display their mental incompetence on a regular basis.

Or maybe it’s mental illness. It’s hard to differentiate with those people.

This made for great podcast fodder, so I discuss the issue on Episode 638 of The Brion McClanahan Show.
