For Marxism to take hold, everything that came before it must be burnt to the ground, according to the standards of today’s radical leftists. No matter the historical background, if it does not serve the purposes of the Great Reset’s dystopian agenda, it must be torn down to the ground. Even if it’s something as simple as a name.
This has been proven across the culture, from iconic food brands like Aunt Jemima, which is no more – to Sports, where the Cleveland Indians have gone the way of the dodo – across all areas, the illiberal left is on a crusade to cancel anything that poses any sort of threat to its narrative, usually by employing the standard “racist” ballyhooing.
Well, that’s exactly what has happened once again, however, this time, it’s on a much larger scale.
This past month, a recently created federal task force that solely focuses on “derogatory geographic names” announced that the US will be renaming a whopping 660 mountains, rivers, and other landmarks in order to remove all traces of “racist” language.
The upcoming changes signify the first cuts that the Biden Regime will make at the behest of the newly formed task force, which is operating within the US Department of Interior (DOI) under the Secretary of DOI Deb Haaland.
According to Smithsonian Magazine, Haaland and the DOI published a list of proposed names for the designated sites in a press release last month. The statement also announced the establishment of the 13-member “derogatory geographic names” task force that includes members from several different federal agencies.
The changes will completely eliminate the use of the word “squaw” – a highly common landmark name in the South West – in the naming of any place in the US. According to the task force, the term, which means “an Indigenous woman of North America,” per Merriam Webster, is a “derogatory” and racist term that should not be allowed in polite society.
From the DOI statement:
“The Department of the Interior today announced a list of candidate replacement names for more than 660 geographic features with the name “squaw,” which was officially declared a derogatory term as a result of Secretary’s Order 3404. The Department has initiated Tribal consultations and an opportunity for public comment to recommend and review proposed replacement names.
Secretary’s Order 3404 established the 13-member Derogatory Geographic Names Task Force, which includes representatives from the Department’s Bureau of Indian Affairs, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, National Park Service, Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Civil Rights, Office of Surface Mining Reclamation, and U.S. Geological Survey. The Department of Agriculture’s U.S. Forest Service is also a member. The Task Force’s first action was to finalize a decision to replace a full spelling of the derogatory term with “sq___” for all official related communications.”
As justification for the changes, Haaland unironically claimed that “words matter,” as she works to rewrite history to serve her woke and Marxist agenda.
According to her, the changes are “long overdue.”
“Words matter, particularly in our work to make our nation’s public lands and waters accessible and welcoming to people of all backgrounds. Consideration of these replacements is a big step forward in our efforts to remove derogatory terms whose expiration dates are long overdue. Throughout this process, broad engagement with Tribes, stakeholders and the general public will help us advance our goals of equity and inclusion.”
For the next few weeks, Haaland and the task force will be reviewing submissions from Native American tribes and members of the public on proposed names for the sites. The full list of changes will be available online while the results are being processed and individuals will be able to submit suggestions and comments until April 25.
Once the submissions are cut off, the task force will submit “at least five” replacement names for final approval from the Board on Geographic Names, according to Smithsonian Magazine.
We’ve seen this before in history – whenever a country is conquered by an invading force.
