Obama Renames Mount McKinley

By Hunter Wallace

This is a good example of why opposition to PC and SJWs is now being channeled into politics and has found its outlet in the Trump movement:

“President Obama announced on Sunday that Mount McKinley was being renamed Denali, using his executive power to restore an Alaska Native name with deep cultural significance to the tallest mountain in North America. …”

Note: I’m less disturbed about this one though for obvious reasons. It was William Seward who bought Alaska and Mount McKinley is named after a US president who fought for the Union in the Shenandoah Valley. Should it trouble us if SJWs start renaming places that honor “racists” like Lincoln, US Grant, or other Union veterans?

  1. Everything honoring Whites needs to be renamed, removed or destroyed.

    Mountains, roads, schools, streets and even currency is being diversified.

    Jefferson Davis Statue Comes Down At University of Texas

    A larger-than-life bronze statue of Jefferson Davis was taken down at the University of Texas today after standing on the South Mall of the campus since 1933, following a legal appeal to keep the controversial memorial in place was rejected.

    In addition to the statue of the president of the Confederacy being removed, a statue of U.S. President Woodrow Wilson is also being moved to another location on the Austin campus.

    In March, UT student government voted to remove the statue. (snip)

    The statue had been a target of vandals who have criticized it as a symbol of racism, as Confederate symbols across the country have been reconsidered in the wake of June’s mass shooting of members of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, by white supremacist Dylann Roof.

    A judge last week ruled against the Sons of Confederate Veterans, which sued to stop. (snip)

  2. To show you why the greater American right can’t accomplish anything for a rat’s tail:

    1. John Boehner is said to be upset about this. He was so upset that he could have started crying. Okay, then what? More crying, more being upset? Don’t actually suggest that he should do anything about it.

    2. Along with that, a bunch of other Ohio politicians, mostly Republicans, but even a few Democrats, along with Boehner, because McKinley was from Ohio, also did a big press release to complain about it. One of the Republican Congressmen from Ohio got up to pronounce that Obama violated the Constitution.

    Yeah, because I can see what Obama was thinking when he woke up in Alaska yesterday morning, he looked himself in the mirror and asked himself just how he could violate the Constitution today, then got the idea to rename a mountain.

    Everyone reading these words knows why Obama did it, it’s because he hates white people and is pandering to Indians/Natives, a pretty loyal Democrat voting group. But here you do, the “right” does nothing but blab on about “constitution” when it’s a racial issue. At this rate, how the Republican Party even wins one dog catcher election is a mystery to me.

  3. The point about McKinley is appreciated, but….

    If I was the governor of Alaska or a citizen thereof I’d be at least insulted by this. Is this a precedent for the monkey to rename and remove things at his whim?

  4. People will still call it Mt McKinley in 20 years for sure. Just like any other things renamed in the past.

  5. Is it true that the Washington Monument is to be painted black and re-named the Malcolm X Monument? After all, Washington was a “racist.”

  6. Donald J. Trump ?@realDonaldTrump 44m44 minutes ago Manhattan, NY
    President Obama wants to change the name of Mt. McKinley to Denali after more than 100 years. Great insult to Ohio. I will change back!

  7. Obama has a very serious mental illness problem, from what he’s been doing for the last three years.
    Mt. McKinley has had that name for 100 years … so, why change it now? Oh, yeah, Obama hates white people. All I can say is, how in hell did a hater of whites get into the White House? There weren’t enough non-white votes to put him there … so, there had to be a fairly large component of self-loathing, stupid whites to do the job.
    Obama’s a typical tin-pot dictator whose utter contempt for the Constitution ranks him as the worst POTUS ever.

  8. Obama loves the constitution.

    He just hates the Bill of Rights and the white interests that the BOR represent.

  9. I agree with your assessment of McKinley – smoothing out Mt Rushmore would also be OK by me and it will probably happen. What I like about this latest slap in the face of the stupid White’s that support BRA is the NIC is letting the ‘Mericans know they are done and being escorted, stage Left, out of history.

  10. Everything in the entire country will be re-named. It will not stop. Total commie re-engineering. Whites will just take it.
