New Activist Makes Demands

Dear Editor,

As I’ve watched events across the nation unfold the last couple of months, I’ve decided to become an “ACTIVIST,” and here are a list of my demands!

I want Yale University renamed; it is named after Elihu Yale, who was an American born British merchant, slave trader, president of the East India Co. settlement in Fort St. George at Madras and a benefactor of the Collegiate School in the Colony of Connecticut, which in 1718 was renamed Yale College in his honor. Yale’s trust fund must be turned over to BLM!

I want and demand New York State and NYC renamed. They’re named for the Duke of York, the most successful and ruthless slave trader in history. Very troubling!

I demand all bridges, streets, highways and buildings named after Robert Byrd, former Democrat senator, be renamed now! Byrd was exalted cyclops for the KKK, enforcer and longest Democrat senator in history. Obama’s statue’s most come down; he gave a eulogy for the KKK Robert Byrd. This cannot be tolerated!

I want and demand Anderson Cooper of CNN fired; he’s a Vanderbilt through his mother and they made their fortune on the backs of slaves and were the first to bring slaves to the South!

I want and demand Nancy Pelosi immediately removed from office; her father, Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., publicly endorsed bigotry, by her own definition, when he dedicated a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E Lee while mayor of Baltimore. In a speech dedicating the statue, Pelosi’s father hailed Lee and Confederate General Stonewall Jackson as a symbol of unity and source of our inspiration. She must be removed from office because of her father’s actions!

Finally the shoe is on the other foot.
