The recent movement to scrub the American South of Confederate flags and names, which many view as pro-slavery symbols, has a new celebrity supporter: Julianne Moore.
The Academy Award-winning actress has teamed with movie producer Bruce Cohen in launching an online petition to change the name of J.E.B. Stuart High School in Falls Church, Virginia, arguing that the name represents a "history of racism."

You don't have to be an admirer of Stuart or the Confederacy to recognize this for what it is: a program to erase America's history. They start with easy targets with minimal resistance (icons of the American South), they'll end with our Founding Fathers, or perhaps with all pre-1960's US history. For instance, there's now a push to replace Andrew Jackson and/or Alexander Hamilton on $20 and $10 dollar bills with some feminist icon. Once the memory of American history and western culture is erased, the left will have a blank slate on which to write its own multicultural narrative of politically correct pseudo-history.
I’ve said it before, if we are going to go down this path, let’s go all the way. Remove the name of every single Dixiecrat Democrat politician from every single road, building or other structure that they are on. Wipe out the history of the Democratic Party, pre-1960 from every single public structure.
The cunning stunt who denigrated Sarah Pain by playing her in that laughable movie? What a surprise!
Knew this would happen someday.
Why do I all of a sudden have the Beatles playing in my head??? “Back in the USSR...”
Seems like every parrot from Hollywood has to have a “cause”.
Ms. Moore’s only famous for disrobing, and pretending to be someone else, in movies.
By all means, she should be the one we must obey! /s
Even the Soviet Union didn't go as far in trying to erase Pre-Communist history and culture in Russia as the PC Left has done (or is trying to do) in the US. The closest parallel that I can think of is the Cultural Revolution in China, where all pre-revolutionary Chinese culture was declared "reactionary" by Mao, or perhaps Pol Pot in Cambodia.
cunning stunt? is this a misspelling of some sort?
Who the F do these people think they are? I don’t care what she wants, you need to ask every person that has ever gone to that school what they want. Their opinion is just as worthy.
Why does the press always publish what these stupidest segment of our society think. They should just randomly ask real Americans what they think and lean away from asking NYC, Chicago, or California they are lop-sidedly blue.
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
How old are you? If you’re my age or older you should recognize it.
LOL. Removing KKK member Sen. Byrd from signs and buildings in WVA will require a bond issue to pay for it.
I believe she has ties to Planned Parenthood...
And who is Sarah Pain? Ronda Rowsey’s next MMA opponent?
Ah, the palest white person on the planet is going to lecture us about racism. Great.
abortion offends FAR more people, yet we fund it with taxes.
homosexuality offends FAR more people, yet it’s supported at the highest levels.
white supremacists identify with the confederate flag FAR less then the nazi flag
common sense is lost
Demographics are destiny.
As it is looking right now, I’d say goodbye to the USA in about 10-20 years since we’re overwhelmed by illegals, foreigners, and liberals.
Abortion, contraception, and taking God out of the public square sure worked wonders for us didn’t it?
guess old George, that racist, is next. Name off of everything!! Take down Mount Rushmore.
Get rid of the one dollar bill!!
Dig him up and move his bones!!
His new picture in history books should be a sinister one with a dark beard and mustache with a maniacal smile.
Out of great respect for Jim and FR, I will not say what I think Julianne Moore should be renamed.
