Too problematic for San Francisco

So many restrictions that were enforced because of COVID-19 are being lifted, seemingly all at once. Is it a miracle, or is there something else going on?

The San Francisco Board of Education has decided to rename 44 of its schools. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are among those problematic school names, but there are many more that you would not think are a problem (especially when you hear one example of why one of those names is on the list).

Hamilton faces the Cancel Culture

Conservative speakers at college campuses have been dis-invited, turned away by the mob, or required extra security (at the speaker’s expense) to deal with the cancel culture. CEO’s have stepped down, and Republicans have been shown the door in restaurants, but the Left was fine with this.

Then they came for “Hamilton”, and some on the Left grew a spine. Welcome to those of us fighting for free speech. I hope it lasts.
