Forty-four schools in the San Francisco School District are being renamed, including those named after the nation’s founding fathers. The list includes eight schools named after George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Paul Revere, and Francis Scott Key (composer of “The Star Spangled Banner”) (“Dianne Feinstein Elementary on List of ‘Inappropriate’ School Names,” The Daily Wire, Oct. 16, 2020). The name of any person who fails any one of the following criteria is to be removed: “Anyone directly involved in the colonization of people; slave owners or participants in enslavement; perpetrators of genocide or slavery; those who exploit workers/people; those who directly oppressed or abused women, children, queer or transgender people; those connected to any human rights or environmental abuses; those who are known racists and/or white supremacists and/or espoused racist beliefs.” This level of insanity is a judgment of God on a wicked nation. “lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?” (Jeremiah 8:9).
