Really? How about this... For THOUSANDS OF YEARS Muslims took slaves FROM ALL RACES, including whites, hispanics, etc, etc... WHat if we don't want to see a mosque EVER in the United States?... After all, their own prophet said it was okay to get slaves from the people Muslims conquered... It is still written in their sacred texts...

Not to mention... Washington WAS NOTHING LIKE HITLER... But you know who did, and to this day does side with Hitler?... Muslims in the Middle East, and radical Muslims living in the west...

Why don't we, all other races whom were taken as slaves for THOUSANDS OF YEARS, demand reparations from Muslim countries in the Middle East?...

Heck, there are MILLIONS of people in the United States who escaped socialism/communism, and we suffered and/or have family still in socialist/communist countries. Yet the left in the U.S. want to implement socialism in the U.S.?... Socialism in one of the few countries that received millions of people from present, or former socialist/communist regimes?... How about we DEMAND that democrats/progressives/rinos/social democrtats/democrat socialists/communists/socialists/ etc be FORCED to never EVER discuss "implementing socialism or ANY socialist policy or ANY communist policy in the U.S?..."

How about we, the millions of us who escaped and were forced to leave our countries of birth because of socialism/communism, DEMAND reparations from socialist/communist regimes?... In fact, all parties which have ANY socialist or communist policy, and want to implement them in the U.S. should be completely BANNED. ALL OF THEM...

How do you like them apples now?...

It traumatizes students? Seriously? If you are traumatized by a mural of George Washington then I suggest never visiting the Denver airport. Those murals may drive you completely mad.

Notice the Democrat radicals and sjws are not demanding the Denver airport murals be painted over !

I’m not sure how best to answer this.
I can only think of a blunt, and to the point, but also hypothetical perspective to consider.


Let’s say there was a mural to Adolf Hitler in Germany. And Jewish Germans wanted it taken down, why would anyone ever take issue with that? Who would genuinely invoke history as a reason to brush aside the requests and concerns of Jewish people asking for such? Why would they?

Now apply that to this.


We can also try to make it a more personal thing to us all to understand the perspective.

If large numbers of my own people were massacred, raped, tortured and enslaved by someone, anyone, I would never ever want to see a mural of them. I’d find it utterly distasteful and downright asinine to ever have to encounter anything like that on a daily basis, and then be questioned as to why I don’t like it.


How would anyone else here feel, in a more personal example? Something that would relate to them. How would people feel being told to move on and accept “history” in a way that is shoved in their faces? None of us would like that. None of us would ever accept it.


Why didn’t Americans want a Mosque built near ground zero?
Now imagine it wasn’t a mosque, but instead a mural of Osama Bin Laden.



I mean, either you get it. Or you don’t.
But I’m 99% certain most people do get it and just want a reason to not accept the truth.


That mural is really a revision of GW to make him look evil and the person doing it disgraced GW. George lived in a different world were Savages, truly they were Moors, Vikings and Iroqoius, controlling people through torturous violence that were on every Continent on Earth. Civilization was built by sorting our those who could not live among the civilized world and those who would try.

well Chuckles, after all the mean oppressive statues had to be removed due to "Muh Feelz", some of us are keeping an eye on the idiot SJW crowd to see what frightens them next. As I said, I called this a while ago when I stated this wouldn't stop with Civil War generals. I live in the south where towns and counties are named after some Civil War folk, will we have to change our addresses?

This particular mural has existed since it was painted, and suddenly, in 2019, it has to go, due to some people being angered. It's a painting. Just as the statues were Statues. When art frightens you, it's time to look inward and find out why. Perhaps Daddy didn't love them enough, or mommy drank too much. But in the end, I doubt that painting is really what scares them to the point of needing to remove it.

It's nice to see you around again. I look forward to your comments on our current political climate.

Ok, I can understand and appreciate that. But if we want to start somewhere it needs to go way way back, just to set the record straight.

It's not that bad, they could have been making lampshades out of his dead corpse. People need to toughen up, murals like this prepare you for the real world where people like me will step on you and mash your nuts on our way up the corporate ladder.

If the OP was going to be honest, he'd have posted the image in question that raised heckles.

]i]Edit: here's a bigger, clearer image of the panel. Stepping over the dead, not on, but the point remains it's a pretty tasteless depiction for a school.


Depictions of people literally walking on the dead is something worthy of being in a school?? Since TF when?



Just paint in a copy balloon over the Indian on the ground saying: "I'm OK"...OR "Zzzzzzzz..."

Problem solved.

Do they realize that the school is named George Washington?

Maybe they should replace his mural with one of the people that sold their ancestors in the first place.
.

The first person to own a slave in America was a black man! Matter of fact he sued and won a case against the state of Virginia to be the first legal slave owner! He set the precedent for all other slave owners in America. Yup if it wasn't for A black man slavery in America might not of even started.

A) I have seen no movement attacking the early American heros..

I have seen movements attacking the confederacy and supporters of the confederacy claiming “the American founding fathers would be next.”

I have never seen one elected official or big wig media personality push removing early American monuments ..


This seems more like a deflection because the confederacy is far harder to defend than the founding fathers..

It is a bait and switch.. “our argument sucks concerning the confederacy, so instead we will pretend it applies to the founding fathers as well.”


B) removing confederate monuments from the court house lawns of the country they rebelled against costing the lives 100s of thousands of US military personnel is not erasing history..


It is acknowledging which side you play for.

Also saying the native Americans don’t have a right to be offended by the founding fathers is like saying Jews can’t be offended by hitler memorabilia...


Of course it is reasonable to expect they would be.. duh..
