Rename Robert E. Lee Elementary After Donald Trump Or Adolf Hitler, According To The Internet

April 24, 2016 | By Garrett Montgomery More

Authorities decided to rename Robert E. Lee Elementary and Internet trolls have hijacked the process. Thus far, the top recommendations for the future name of Robert E. Lee Elementary are Adolf Hitler, Adam Lanza, Donald Trump, and Harper Lee.

Texas school officials want to rename Robert E. Lee Elementary, and they decided to create an online poll to have the public’s input, and they are now regretting it.

Last month after a very lengthy debate, the Austin school board decided that it was finally time to change Robert E. Lee Elementary. The horrific Charleston shooting where nine innocent African-Americans were gunned down at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in South Carolina by 21-year-old Dylann Roof, prompted parents, former students, neighbors, and members of the community to request the name change.

The school was named after Robert E. Lee, who was a general known for commanding the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia in the American Civil War from 1862 until his surrender in 1865. Lee had a very unique view on slavery, and shared his thoughts on the matter in the following letter to his wife, Mary Anna Lee, in 1856:

…that slavery as an institution, is a moral & political evil in any Country… I think it however a greater evil to the white man than to the black race, & while my feelings are strongly enlisted in behalf of the latter, my sympathies are more strong for the former. The blacks are immeasurably better off here than in Africa, morally, socially & physically. The painful discipline they are undergoing, is necessary for their instruction as a race, & I hope will prepare & lead them to better things. How long their subjugation may be necessary is known & ordered by a wise Merciful Providence…

The school has received more than 240 suggestions as possibilities to replace the school’s name, and many of them are beyond outrageous. The top recommendations for the future of Robert E. Lee Elementary – Adam Lanza, Donald J. Trump, Adolf Hitler, and Garfunkel.

Top 10 recommendations:

Donald J. Trump Elementary: 45 nominations
Robert E. Lee Elementary: 34 nominations
Russell Lee Elementary: 32 nominations
Harper Lee Elementary: 30 nominations
Elisabet Ney Elementary: 15 nominations
Lee Elementary: 13 nominations
Adolf Hitler School for Friendship and Tolerance: 8 nominations
Waller Creek Elementary: 8 nominations
Dr. Frances J. Nesmith Elementary School: 7 nominations
Guy Bizzell Elementary: 6 nominations

Hold on; there are more insane suggestions:

Adam Lanza’s School of Fun, Bee Movie, Bleeding Heart Liberal Elementary, Boaty McBoatface Elementary School, Forgetting the Past Dooms You to Repeat It Elementary, Garfunkel, Hypothetical Perfect Person Memorial Elementary School, John Cena Elementary and Schooly McSchoolerson.

The Austin school board will take a decision on May 23. The good news is that the board is not obligated to take the recommendations into account when they pick the new name of the school. Security has been increased at the school as a precaution.

      In Britain, would they have suggested “Schoolie McGrade School”?

      Stop with the hate; Hate and anger comes from Satan. You deserve what you are getting because you Turned against God unto your own strength and knowledge. You can blame no one but yourself. You have allowed Satan to rule and he shall make things worse and worse. enjoy the reign of Satan. The Muslims along with all that do not know Jesus Christ as their savior will be going to HELL to burn forever. This generation is dammed; for God has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts so they cannot see the truth nor can they understand with their hearts that their creator loves them. You sure want like Hell.

        Another religious fool! This is why the Dark Ages happened!

      • Shawn says:

        You aren’t supposed to spread fear as an ambassador from God. God hasn’t hardened anyone hearts. The real question is: does what you say come from satan? Don’t make radical claims without proof. You don’t know what God is thinking. You don’t know his heart. Instead of spreading fear, try to spread love. That’s what God wants. These people are just renaming a school. There is no hate or anger in renaming a school.

      • The Lunatic says:

        No offense Talmadge, but when was Religon mentioned in this topic? What you said doesn’t really make sense in this topic of Renaming the School.

      Trump has not done a patriotic thing in his life and people are actually going to honor him by naming a school after him. Until he ran for president no one would have seriously thought of him being presidential and rightfully so. He is a joke and I am embarrassed that he could get this far

    4. Tony says:

      the pukes these days are nothing but disgusting trouble makers, anybody who has to whine about the name of a school has a problem, they have to be half baked

    5. Ken Burroughs says:

      Enough with this PC bullshit. Like it or not Robert E. Lee was a part of our history. If the little disgusting pansies on the left don’t like it why don’t they just leave the country. Boarders language and culture. God bless Donald Trump

    6. Jacob says:

      “Adolf Hitler School For Friendship and Tolerance” Im laughing harder than I should be

    7. Juan Sebastián says:

      Oh, those Austin liberals are beyond belief. Only delicate little snowflakes would have a problem with one the most important figures in military history. They hypocritically listen to rap music, which uses the word “nigga” in every other verse, but oh, they can’t be reminded of the Civil War. Those wankers need to get their priorities straight.

    8. Daniel Rivera says:

      this is why I hat schools so fucking much. someone got shot others jump up and say it was race and what dose the school board do? not increase security or see if was race or home life that lead to a shooting no they sweep it under the rug and then the cheapest media ploy of all rename the school, even worse they don’t even do it them selves to dedicate it to the memory of the fallen, no they chose the laziest way possible let others name it. I hope it dose get named after Hitler if only to remind the board that they fucked up by trying to forget there past! slavery was bad, Hitler, REALY bad, but pretending that it did not happen is FARE worse!

    9. Charles Edwards says:

      In New Orleans, the mayor has suggested removing or relocating 4 monuments related to the Civil War. One is a statue of Robert E. Lee. I think they should reconsider that one. Lee was probably the best general of the war, and consistently won battles against superior forces. He was a West Point graduate, but after his first battle, he swore he would never fight in another war. A short time later, union forces invaded the south,and he signed up to defend the homeland. Last, there’s an account that suggests he was not a racist. He was at church, and at communion, a black man went to the rail with the whites. The only white person in the church who went with him was Robert E. Lee. (For what it’s worth,it seems to me a kid would like going to a school called Boaty Mcboatface Elementary.)
