Founding Fathers Kicked Out of San Diego

The city of San Diego unsuccessfully tried to throw the Founding Fathers out of town. Some city officials thought that it was offensive that all of the Founding Fathers are men. So, the city passed an edict on so-called “bias-free” language. This edict called for all city employees to stop using common household phrases like “weatherman,” “fireman,” “man-made,” and even “Founding Fathers.” Teachers at public schools are expected to cut the Founding Fathers out of their curriculum in order to adhere to this crazy policy. When parents found out about this ridiculous rule, there was immediately a great public outcry for it to be removed. City Hall was put under so much pressure that San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer made a statement assuring the public that the rule would not be enforced.

This case in San Diego is a good example of politically correct feminism overruling common sense. The term “Founding Fathers” has been invoked throughout American history in the courtroom, on Capitol Hill, and throughout our country. It is used as a reminder to all of us of the brave men who boldly put everything on the line for liberty. It was their calling to ensure that we, their descendants, would live in a land free from tyranny. American school children need to be taught about our Founding Fathers. By learning about the people who secured the freedoms that we hold so dear, our children learn the importance of protecting these freedoms. City employees and especially school teachers should not be silenced from talking about important American history. Unfortunately, feminists care more about political correctness then they do historical correctness. That is why it is so important for Americans to watch out when liberals try to impose “gender-neutral” language. Such rules usually mean suppressing free speech and re-writing history to reflect what liberals want your children to be taught.
