It's been a busy week here in Virginia involving the controversies surrounding our historical figures. First, Circuit Judge Richard Moore ruled last week that the Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville that was at the root of the protests and violence in that city two years ago must remain where it is in accordance with state law. Virginia Judge Rules Charlottesville’s Confederate General Statues Must Stay https://www.breitbart.com/politics/...villes-confederate-general-statues-must-stay/ Today, I heard that the school board in nearby Richmond will rename a school that was named after a different historical figure from a different era, bringing to mind the question where will this end?: Debatable, at best, and I sincerely doubt the people at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA share Kamras' politically-correct opinion. ...and now for the opposing argument: First of all, my position on this is that the decisions regarding these monuments and school names should be left to local communities, but on the other hand I agree with Jonathan Young's concerns and disagree with Jason Kamras' opinion that Mason is unworthy of the honor of having a school here in Virginia, or anywhere else for that matter, named after him. What's somewhat interesting about the George Mason kerfuffle is that there was no controversy surrounding this Founding Father and his legacy until now. Of all the great historical figures from Virginia, Mason is arguably the least noted of them all, despite the fact he is considered the Father of our Bill of Rights and figured prominently in the passage of the Virginia Statute for Establishing Religious Freedom, which codified the principles of secularism and religious freedom that this country is largely based on. For those who have been wondering if the likes of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, et al, will escape The Purge, the removal of George Mason's name from a school in his home state suggests that they won't.
