We have lived in Arlington County, VA for the past two years. I love the area! It’s gorgeous, there is lots of greenery, the schools are terrific, and it’s close to work. The kids have been attending Washington-Lee High School for the past two years. It’s one of the top schools in the nation, and I’m glad the kids got the opportunity to attend.
Bad thing about Arlington? A plethora of PC idiots who are nosy, snotty, invasive and dilatory.
Virginia Square resident John Schachter said Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general during the Civil War, deserves “no positive recognition for his appalling record [of] treason, racism, hatred and dishonor,” according to the Sun Gazette.
Thankfully, no one at the meeting appeared to take this dimwit seriously – not even the head of the Arlington branch of the NAACP, preferred to focus “on dealing with current issues, not reopening old ones.”
Apparently, seeing the school from his oh-so-lofty condo offends the fragile sensibilities of Schachter and his wife and needles their white guilt.
Never mind that Robert E. Lee and the Civil War are all an indelible part of our history and part of what makes America what she is today.
Whether you believe he was a traitor or not…
Whether you condemn his cruel treatment of his slaves or not…
Lee was a brilliant military tactician and a class act despite the South’s defeat.
Apparently Schachter doesn’t get it, and neither does his wife, who proposed renaming the school Washington-Lincoln.
If he’s so butthurt over the name thing, he should just move to another state – a northern one – where he won’t have to put up with them ignorant Virginians worshiping Lee and naming roads and schools after him.
