George Washington mural 'traumatizes' San Fran students
https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/201...ran-stude/

Quote:A San Francisco school district may remove an 83-year-old mural of President George Washington from, ironically, George Washington High School because it “traumatizes students and community members.”

The work of artist Victor Arnautoff, a communist, may no longer be progressive enough for “Fog City.” His 13 panels for the high school, created in 1936, have been deemed problematic by the San Francisco Unified School District.

Officials say some of the artist’s historical depictions are offensive to Native Americans and blacks.

Laura Dudnick, a spokeswoman for the district, told educational watchdog the College Fix via email Thursday that Mr. Arnautoff’s work was debated by a “‘Reflection and Action Working Group’ that was comprised of members of the local Native American community, students, school representatives, district representatives, local artists, and historians.”

Four public meetings were held on the matter between December 2018 and February 2019.

The group claims the mural “glorifies slavery, genocide, colonization, manifest destiny, white supremacy, oppression, etc.,” the Richmond District Blog recently reported.

“At its conclusion, the group voted and the majority recommended that the ‘Life of Washington’ mural be archived and removed because the mural does not represent SFUSD values,” Ms. Dudnick continued. “The superintendent and staff are now reviewing the recommendation and considering the best course of action. At this time there hasn’t yet been any recommendation put forth before the SF Board of Education on this matter.”

Historian Fergus M. Bordewich told the College Fix that SFUSD has fallen victim to “a deeply wrongheaded habit to project today’s norms, values, ideals backwards in time to find our ancestors inevitably falling short.”

It’s difficult to quantify the impact of stuff like this. But I’m convinced that all these seemingly trivial things — a George Washington mural today, a statue of Kate Smith last week, images of Christopher Columbus at Notre Dame back in January, etc., etc., etc. — have a cumulative impact that is very beneficial to Trump.

It helps to highlight the stupidity of the left regarding social issues like this. Any decision to remove the mural, or the statue, or the whatever just shows how deeply superficial the democrat party is. They perform knee jerk reactions to satisfy whoever is standing in front and screaming the loudest.Their motivation is appeasement and vote getting, not any serious attempt at understanding the underlying motives of these actions.

Not hard to quantify at all. That kind of nonsense is what helped get Trump elected last time.

What I mean is, do these kinds of controversies affect 1% of the vote or 5% or ... what?

Imagine how badly they will look on this era in the future.

I agree that, in a vacuum, it is asinine.

However, the article linked is terribly misleading in that is implies the paining is just a "mural of Washington" that is causing problems.

The source article explains it's more of a life timeline painting which depicts many events over the life of Washington.
https://richmondsfblog.com/2019/04/09/hi...americans/

Still don't see the issue, but it is at least not as ridiculous as the idea it is simply a portrait of George's mug.

Our new, domesticated Taliban/al Queda. I knew those guys were going to be some bad hombres we’d have to deal with back when they were simply blowing up statues and monuments over in Afghanistan as “idolatry”.

Now they’re firmly settled here. Different name, different game, same outcome.

That and the fact that the artist was a commie would make one think that’d endear him to Fransicko types.

Course, being a commie was nuevo-chic back then. Before it was really tried. Now I think we can all see what its eventuality will always be.

So it turns out that the actor Danny Glover — hardcore Leftist is he — went to George Washington High School, and has said (in response to this controversy) that “Art is supposed to make people feel uncomfortable. That’s what art is for.”

They are going to cover it up with pannels, instead of painting over it.
