The left isn’t just trying to remove confederate statues and any other statue that reminds them of a confederate statue. Now they are trying to get AG Barr removed from the distinguished alumni list at his former prep school:
NY POST – The alumni committee of the prestigious Bronx prep school Horace Mann is facing furious calls to remove Attorney General Bill Barr from their distinguished-alumni list following reports that law enforcement followed his orders to aggressively clear protesters in DC for a Donald Trump photo op.
“It’s a big debate with the alumni committee as to whether or not to remove him,” says a source. “They had to have an emergency meeting about it, but no decision has been made.” Almost 8,000 people have signed a Change.org petition to have the politico, who was given the alumni association’s Award for Distinguished Achievement in 2011, removed.
“Barr directly ordered the violent removal of protesters for the president’s political gain, and this was a callous and despicable act demonstrating a clear disregard for our democratic values of free speech and racial justice,” says the petition, started by class of 2020 students Kiara Royer and Jessica Rosberger.
“Barr violated our school’s Core Values of Mutual Respect and Mature Behavior as well as our Mission Statement by infringing on the common good.”
Alums decrying Barr is nothing new. Since 1991, a Horace Mann peer of his, Jimmy Lohman, now an attorney, has been publicly accusing the AG of being a racist who bullied him at school because he supported civil rights.
The school’s Alumni Council is actually considering it:
The school’s Alumni Council said in a statement, “We have heard concerns expressed by current students, alumni and school employees … We are convening our council to canvass the views of our alumni constituencies and to review in a deliberate manner the range of perspectives that are being communicated to us in connection with the award. We intend to consider the issues thoroughly and sensitively.”
If the media bothered to report the truth about what really happened at Lafayette Square, people would know that the clearing of Lafayette Park was actually decided well in advance of Trump’s to walk to St. John’s Church and had nothing to do with it. They’d know that the US Park Service made the decision to clear Lafayette Park because of the violence over the weekend and that AG Barr signed off on it on Monday morning and gave the order. They’d know that the reason it didn’t get cleared until later in the day, shortly before Trump walked to the Church, was because Barr couldn’t get enough manpower to make it happen earlier due to the injuries and exhaustion of these same men from the weekend that had literally just ended.
But instead, the media smeared AG Barr and now the left is out for blood. And now it looks like this Alumni Council is going to cave to the harassment of the liberal mob. I sure hope I’m wrong, but this just shows you how much influence the fake news media still has in this country and how many useless idiots still believe their every word.
