Jefferson Davis School To Be Renamed After Obama

Rebel Staff

Politically correct leftists scored yet another victory this week when a school that was named after Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy, was renamed after Barack Obama. 

Davis Magnet IB PTA President Janelle Jefferson announced at the Jackson Public Schools Board of Trustees meeting Tuesday evening that school stakeholders voted on Oct. 5 to rename the school Barack Obama Magnet IB.

“Jefferson Davis, although infamous in his own right, would probably not be too happy about a diverse school promoting the education of the very individuals he fought to keep enslaved being named after him,” she told the board.

A demographic breakdown of Davis Magnet’s enrollment for the 2017 school lists 98 percent of the school’s students as black. Overall, JPS’ enrollment is 97 percent black.

Jefferson said the school community wanted to rename the campus “to reflect a person who fully represents ideals and public stances consistent with what we want our children to believe about themselves.”

This comes after months of leftists trying to erase history in the U.S. by destroying any monument or symbol related to the Confederacy in the name of political correctness. It's ridiculous that leftists get a rush out of erasing the name of a man who has been dead for over 125 years. 

In their quest for political correctness, leftists are forgetting the importance of remembering history. Of course, there are a small number of outliers who still believe in the values of the Confederacy, but the average American sees these monuments and schools as a way to remember our country's past mistakes. Erasing history only makes it easier for history to repeat itself, which makes moves like this one all the more dangerous.

Furthermore, we have to point out that it's ludicrous to name a school after Obama less than a year after he left office. The legacy of a presidency isn't even shaped until a leader has arguably been out of office for decades, so there's no telling what kind of president Obama will go down in history as. If we were to bet on it, we'd say that this school might regret taking on Obama's name once the ripple effects of his presidency are known.

Oh Poop!.. And after the books start appearing in the coming years proving Barak Hussein was indeed a Muslim plant, they’re going to have to re-name the school all over again… Bummer about having to change those signs yet again…

Canadian Mongrel fell for it! There was no such school. The Rebel was playing a bit of a joke on you.

Look back at the story. What was the town and what was the State? There was none. It was an imagined story by Canadian “Rebel Staff” who take it for granted that Canadian readers assume readers in the United States are ignorant.

So, a school has been renamed from a white Democrat racist to a black Democrat racist. The difference is exactly what?

Poor Jay Kelly, another conundrum on his plate!

I wonder what they will do when the latest revelations about the corruption carried out with the Russia/US uranium deal are fully revealed? Obama must have been complicit – it was his swamp!

Shouldn’t that be “Bernie Santos School”?

Aren’t schools and such named after dead presidents? Does this school know something we don’t?

Curious tribute to an American president who in his eight years in office never did one thing that did not advance the growth of the Muslim Caliphate…

Dear reader, can you recall from the story above whether the school is in Mississippi or in Illinois?

No, you cannot, because the prolific “Rebel Staff” cannot be bothered to indicate where the story takes place. Whoever this “Rebel Staff” is they are certainly not accountable for their writing.

Whaco Bama could be in jail soon. Caught talking to someone in front of a Mike, he thought was dead, telling some Guy that he had talked to Putin with good results. Conversation was recorded. This was during Trumps election campaign.

Is the school being re-branded with his full name; Barack Hussein Obama?

I’ll racist is that… Your naming the school after a black-guy because most of the kids are black…!!! wow.!!!

Now that Russian collusion has ties to Obama’s administration, maybe the school board will re-think their decision. This president broke many laws during his reign. My understanding is, there are multiple investigations involving Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Hard to believe Obama is Nobel Laureate for Peace!

… How pathetic to be honoured simply because you are black, and no other reason. It is not that Obama distinguished himself in any other way.
… He also got a Nobel because he is black. Pathetic.
