Calzoncit says he evaluated all the schools in San Antonio named after racists and bigots and singled out Stonewall as the worst. He wants the school name changed to Cesar Chavez Elementary.

Cesar Chaves Elementry!!!

Seems to be something of a tactic these days. I wasn't quite sure about Edward R. Murrow, until the local "progessives" started campaigning to name a new high school after him. As a result, I'm now certain he was a closet red.

Former Harlandale Independent School District administrator Nick Calzoncit

I have a question for this brain dead racist - if this is such a big deal, why didn't you broach this topic when you were a sitting administrator? Why did you wait until AFTER you were booted out of the job BEFORE you started worrying about STUPID stuff?? Most of the time, useless administrative types pull this nonesense while they're still ON the public's dime - must be staking out territory for higher office.

Demographics at work. There are likely far more students attending that share cultural ties with Chavez than there are ones who share cultural ties with Jackson. All this is is pandering to the local electorate. Just be glad they aren't changing the name to Hugo Chavez Elementary.

You'd probably enjoy reading Red Star over Hollywood. I'll let you know how The ACLU vs. America is. I just got it for Christmas. Should be good and raise my blood pressure a couple of points.

America had a "stealth" communist revoloution in the 1960's and its functionaries continue its unfinished work by taking control of America's culture and history.

While we're at it, let's get rid of the religious connection to the city of San Antonio and call it Stalingrad.

For those of you who are not in the San Antonio area, Harlandale is on the south end of our fair city. It's the most corrupt district in the area (and that's saying quite a bit here in San Antonio).

He is the superintendent of a local school district. And he won a free truck from a car dealership that his district does business with. Does that pass your smell test? News 4 WOAI Trouble Shooter Jeff Coyle Investigates.

At the Southway Ford dealership on December 29th, Guillermo Zavala was awarded a free Ford F150 King Ranch pickup truck worth approximately $38,000. Ford Motor Company said it was their way of celebrating breaking a new national sales record.

But within hours of a News 4 WOAI story on the giveaway, viewers began contacting the Trouble Shooters. They asked whether the free truck was a conflict of interest and wanted the Trouble Shooters to investigate.

That’s because Zavala is more than just a lucky Ford customer. He is also Superintendent of the Harlandale Independent School District. Harlandale has a conflict-of-interest policy that says employees shall not accept any gift that could influence their duties.

And here's another wonder from Harlandale:

Harlandale school board president Joshua Cerna apologized after the News 4 WOAI Trouble Shooters caught him on tape at the beach and shopping during a school board convention. Cerna also paid back some of his hotel bill and car rental because of our investigation. But now new information shows Cerna also claimed credit hours for workshops he did not attend. Trouble Shooter Brian Collister has the follow up because “You Paid for It”.

The Trouble Shooters have learned that Harlandale school board president Joshua Cerna didn't just lie to us.

Collister asks: “Were you at the beach on Monday?" Cerna says: "At the beach? -- No." Collister: "Let me show you some video of you at the beach."

Now we've uncovered Cerna also lied to the district and the Texas School Board Association. All school board members are required, by law to take several hours of continuing education a year. They can do that by attending workshops at various conferences and meetings. Board members then fill out forms to report what sessions they attended.

This is just the tip of the iceberg from this wacky district. By the way, Cerna was elected president of the board recently...

After attacking "the" messenger (Joseph McCarthy), the left ran wild.

The House Committee On UnAmerican Activities started investigating communists BEFORE we entered WWII. But somehow, they found someone to blame the whole thing on (without producing people who weren't actually communists).

The Red Dupes won the Cold War whether they know it or not.

This administrator obviously is ignorant concerning Thomas Stonewall Jackson. Jackson, though a great confederate general, never owned slaves and was against slavery. Jackson was a great educator. He personally disobeyed Virgina law in teaching blacks to read and write before the war. Maybe the administrator is against education?

...about covers it for me.

If I remember correctly, Chavez' United Farm Workers party had about 2,000 members when he died.

Click on the earlier post on FR, and you will get to read Calzoncit's rantings about the slaughter of Mexican soldiers...
Gearing up for a vote this month, if I'm not mistaken.Even though the "community activists" can find no reference to the school being named after Stonewall Jackson,(and so what if it was?) and anecdotal evidence from the community that the school is named for the stone walls along the road, they seem to still be going full speed ahead. And no, not everyone in the district supports this stupidity.

Yes. It coincided with the "Cultural Revolution" in Red China and shared the same goal of deconstructing any society which stands in the way of Communist domination.

I don't think that the majority of parents in the district support changing the name. Many attended the school as children, and see this stuff for what it is. There is a vocal minority in this town that have appointed themselves as "representatives" of the Hispanic community, whatever that is. And they are so darned sure that if you are a Gonzalez or Sanchez then by golly you think like them. Condecending SOB's.
