High School to Erase George Washington Mural After Students Claim It’s Offensive

by Paul Goldberg

Democrats continue to erase our American history. This time at “George Washington High School,” in San Francisco, CA., where school officials plan to remove a George Washington mural deemed offensive by some students.

It won’t be cheap to erase our nation’s first president as the project may cost over half a million dollars.

Washington Times reported that the historical image of George Washington’s life will soon vanish from San Francisco’s Washington High School over accusations of racism.

In 1936, Victor Arnautoff, a left-leaning artist who went on to join the Communist Party, created a 13-panel mural that was meant to show an accurate depiction of U.S. history — warts and all. His art, however, was deemed so offensive this week by school board officials that they will spend anywhere from $375,000 to $825,000 to hide it from public view.

The debate over the mural started over a month ago.

From Breitbart

George Washington High School in San Francisco, California, plans to remove an “offensive” mural of George Washington. At a school board meeting this week, no board members spoke in defense of the historical art, which one speaker claims causes “visual offense.”

According to a local news report, George Washington High School in San Francisco plans to erase a 13-panel mural from 1936 that depicts George Washington. Many critics of the mural have condemned its depictions of slaves and Native Americans. Now, the school is on the verge of removing the mural altogether.

Breitbart News originally reported on the push to remove the mural in May, when alumni backed the calls for removal. Although many members in the local community, including students, have argued in favor of keeping the mural, others still insist that it be taken down. At a meeting that was held on June 18, not even one school board member argued that the mural should stay up.

“Why do we have to explain the pain caused by visual offense that we see in that building that is supposed to be an institution of learning,” one local said.

Others, still, are pushing back against calls to paint over the historical art piece. “We should be teaching about the mural and what it means. I’m half native American.  I have no problem with the mural.  It depicts what happened,” another local added.

Joel Britton, the Socialist Workers Party candidate for mayor, surprisingly argued in favor of keeping the mural. “Destroying or covering it would be an act of censorship and a blow to freedom of expression that would set a precedent for further such actions,” Britton said. “Censorship creates precedents that will always come down hardest on the working class, including African American, Latinos, Native American, and Asian American working people.”

First of all only democrats or the federal government would pay $375,000.00-$875,000.00 to remove a mural that accurately depicts American history. These were things that actually happened in the lives of these people, one of them being our first president. All you have to do is paint the thing for about $500.00 with labor & paint. I think the whole thing is ridiculous that because some people think something is offensive that we just tear it down & no one else has a chance to say why it should stay. The democrats are trying to rewrite our countries history & that is something we should not allow.

Are the Liberal, Democratic Socialists going to erase Our American History? If everything that offended me was removed, there wouldn’t be any Liberal, Democratic Socialists. Just look the other way like Conservative Republicans have to do.

While the entire notion is one of the best exercise in stupidity I have seen as of late, given the deplorable state of education in the state of confusion called California, leave it to the liberals of San Francisco to spend $375,000 to $825,000 to remove the mural when a street tagger would do it for free in the school’s art class.

With that money perhaps they could give the homeless US legal citizens medical treatment, food, and housing so they didn’t have to live in cardboard boxes and tents on the streets and in the parks. Illegal aliens get all those benefits in CA today.

As it turns out our Intellectually progressive compassionate Liberals are not Intellectual, progressive or compassionate as they claim to be.

Perhaps they all suffer from the same disease, Chronic Inflammatory Democrat Poly-Pelosi disease. It’s a very serious mental disease.

“remove” – permanently – the offensive students by dropping them into the bay

Gee….I wonder what would happen if someone who was offended by those students and that school started erasing them? I think it would be a GREAT START.

It is getting so the youth of OUR country hates ever thing and any thing that made OUR country great. The youth have to start to realize of what happened to make our country, so they can live and grow and enjoy all the luxuries . All the ones that went before them died so they now have the good lives they have. It is a pitiful shame that they are now in charge of what the rest of us had for reminders. Plus how many we lost just so this generation can the peace and “honor” to tear every thing down and destroy it all . Makes me wonder if all the lost lives and homes and families were really worth it !!
