Cancel Culture is So Extreme, Even Obama is Getting Canceled
It’s hard to believe that liberals would do something like this.
Remember back when Barack Obama was president and how much we hated that? We hated his liberal agenda because, at the time, he was more extreme and more liberal than any other Democrat president that we’ve had in recent times.
Today, he’s so centrist it’s ridiculous. The left has gone so far left that they’re not even on the charts anymore.
The Waukegan Community Unit School District 60 Board of Education had been tossing around the idea of renaming two of their middle schools and one the ideas they had was to name one after former President Barack Obama and the other one after his wife, Michelle.
You would think that with a liberal school district in Illinois would be all for naming their schools after this venerated former president. They practically look at him as a deity. But no, it looks like the Cancel Culture really runs deep.
While board members will vote from a choice of three names for Jefferson and another trio for Webster, they received a clear message from six members of the Latinx community Jefferson should not become Barack & Michelle Obama Middle School.
Oscar Arias, a Waukegan native and former district student, said during the public comment portion of the meeting the Obama name should be rejected because more than 3 million people were deported during the former president’s administration.
“That’s many families that were affected and separated, many of whom reside right here in Waukegan,” Arias said. “The fear that many of my friends faced of never seeing their parents again after coming home from school still resonates with me.”
Now, I don’t have a dog in this fight because I don’t live in Illinois, nor do I care what they name a public school. But these folks are just ridiculous. They have no idea what this country would become if every single immigrant was just allowed to come and go here as they pleased, but they may soon find out with Biden in charge…if you can call it that.
