Posted on 07/29/2018 12:11:02 AM PDT by Zakeet
Now the Anti-History movement of the left has a new target. A target as big as a city.
A new report from Austin, Texass Equity Office about existing Confederate monuments suggested changing the city's name.
The report identified several neighborhoods and 10 streets named in honor of the Confederacy or William Barton, a slave owner dubbed the "Daniel Boone of Texas," that could be changed, The Austin American-Statesman reported Friday.
Austins namesake, Stephen F. Austin - also referred to as the "father of Texas" - opposed efforts by Mexico to abolish slavery in the Tejas province, saying freed slaves would become "vagabonds, a nuisance and a menace," the newspaper noted.
The only question is whom to rename Austin after? It has to be a historical figure with impeccable politically correct bona fides. A man whose commitment to leftist politics could never be challenged.
Marxville? New Mao City? Obamastan?
Columbus, Ohio, I imagine will be next. Also what was the Duke of York's position on slavery? What was Amerigo Vespucci's position on gay marriage?

Us Libtards finally have a sensible issue that we can all get passionate about ...
Going to have to rename quite a few country songs and I guess Austin City Limits isn’t out of the question
University town Austin is ‘out there’.
Say boo to them and they’ll occupy the administration buildings until they get more safe spaces.
Why not name it Snowflake Falls?
They should definitely do this. “Keep Obama City Weird” has a nice ring to it.
I suggest Dimwitville.
This forum has posters no different about anything southern
Always been that way here
What? And slander all the other dimwits?
They better not mess with the Statue of Stevie Ray Vaughan at Town Lake...
It won’t matter what you call it, Bob Wills will still be King.
My God, he was right. Fbi/doj crime statistics.
Shitholistan would be accurate.
Why don’t they just tell everyone it was actually named after Austin powers?
Since most of the public has been dis-educated, they won’t figure out that the city is older than the movie anyway.
They are NEVER going to stop unless whites collectively make them.
Trying to reason with a liberal is like trying to talk sense to a hammer.
I already refer to it as “Hanoi in the Hill Country”
All Native-American names must be changed too since all tribes practiced slavery.
They can just call it Stalingrad and be done with it (though I think that the fact that Stalin would have unhesitatingly executed all the perverts would be lost on them).
My suggestion: Malebolge.
