The far left is raising the alarm to destroy the storied history of America’s first president, George Washington.
In San Franciso, George Washington High School may paint over a mural depicting the life of the first president citing that it “glorifies slavery, genocide, colonization, manifest destiny, white supremacy, oppression” while it “traumatizes students.”
The mural has been on the walls before the school officially opened in 1936 and was painted by Russian-American painter Victor Arnautoff. At the time of its completion it was the “largest WPA-funded, single-artist mural suite on the Pacific Coast.”
However liberals are looking to deface the historic imagery because it’s depicts the truth of American history which at one point included slavery and conflict with Native Americans.
Rather than use the art to appreciate what our country has gained and learned over many years, many would rather destroy yet more of America’s history so they can rewrite it as they see fit.
