High School Considers Removing George Washington Murals Because They ‘Traumatize’ Students


A Northern California public high school may remove an 83-year-old mural of President George Washington from George Washington High School because it ‘traumatizes students:’ ‘Glorifies slavery, genocide, colonization, manifest destiny.’

Laura Dudnick, a spokeswoman for the district, told the College Fix that Mr. Arnautoff’s work was debated by a “‘Reflection and Action Working Group’ that was comprised of members of the local Native American community, students, school representatives, district representatives, local artists, and historians.”

A San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) working group says the murals should be removed and put in storage to protect the students.

“SFUSD convened a ‘Reflection and Action Working Group’ that was comprised of members of the local Native American community, students, school representatives, district representatives, local artists and historians,” Laura Dudnick, spokeswoman for the district, wrote in an email to The College Fix. “At its conclusion the group voted and the majority recommended that the ‘Life of Washington’ mural be archived and removed because the mural does not represent SFUSD values,” the letter continued. More

What is wrong with these idiots. They have people defecating on their streets, a heroin epidemic and an old painting traumatizes them? 

You know, there are things which truly do traumatize people like “personal” experience in combat, rape, violence, child abuse, etc. This is not one of those things. It’s just PC brainwashing gone amok.

Schools no longer teach our children to think for themselves. They are indoctrinating them. This is very dangerous for America’s future.
