Abraham Lincoln Gets Canceled

No one is safe from the Memory Hole. Drunk on their own intolerance, liberals are canceling Abraham Lincoln, the Great Emancipator, for insufficient political correctness.

Via Breitbart:

A so-called renaming committee in San Francisco is erasing the name the 16th president of the United States from a school because Abraham Lincoln lived a life “stained by racism.”

“Uprooting the problematic names and symbols that currently clutter buildings, streets, throughout the city is a worthy endeavor,” Jeremiah Jeffries, chairman of the committee and a first grade teacher in that California city, said. “Only good can come from the public being reflective and intentional about the power of our words, names and rhetoric within our public institutions.”

It goes without saying that only good can come of any act of extremism motivated by devotion to political correctness.

Honest Abe isn’t the only historical figure to face erasure. Dozens of school sites have been targeted for renaming. The San Francisco Chronical agrees that the author of the Declaration of Independence deserves it, but maybe not some of the other ones:

When the committee released the 44 school sites to be renamed, many made sense. Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe were slave owners, and Vasco Nunez Balboa was a murderous conquistador.

At least a few names on the list raised eyebrows, including … Dianne Feinstein, who landed on the list because as mayor in the 1980s, she replaced a vandalized Confederate flag in front of City Hall.

If Senator Feinstein tries that sort of open-mindedness in New York, she might be arrested.

Labor leader Cesar Chavez somehow managed to escape the list, despite being opposed to illegal immigration for the obvious reason that it drives down wages.

As for Lincoln, maybe he freed the slaves, but he also served at a time when the US government defended settlers from marauding Indians:

Lincoln’s administration supported the Homestead Act of 1862 and transcontinental railroad, which led to the loss of Indigenous peoples’ land.

This implies that anyone who contributed to the growth of America is a sinner against political correctness. By this reasoning, simply being American makes you worthy of being erased. Possibly an exception could be made for Americans who live their whole lives without making a positive contribution to society — liberal journalists, for example.

Here is Lincoln’s most specific sin:

Lincoln, whose grandfather was killed by a Native American, oversaw the hanging of 38 indigenous warriors after a Santee Sioux uprising in Minnesota, but only after he personally reviewed the legal cases against the 303 men sentenced to death. He saved the lives of 265 Indigenous men.

Not good enough. He should have saved all of them if he didn’t want to get canceled.

Forgotten are the women and children raped and murdered by Indians during the Santee Sioux uprising. White people deserve the worst for being racist.
