Social Justice Warriors (SJW) have been protesting buildings on college campuses named after historical figures with racial pasts like Woodrow Wilson, Lord Jeffery, and John C. Calhoun. Now they’ve taken it a step further.
The Daily Beast reported Thursday that Lebanon Valley College in Pennsylvania, SJW have demanded that school administrators change the name of Lynch Memorial Hall because it triggers them.
Lynch Memorial is named after Clyde A. Lynch, the former school president who led the school through the Great Depression and World War II. The protestors want his named removed because “the word as a verb, not as a name of a person… creates feelings of discomfort.”
He never owned slaves, gave small pox blankets to Native Americans, or wrote about the need for eugenics. No, Lynch’s great sin is that his last name is Lynch and that reminds SJW of lynching blacks. Do any of them realize that President Obama’s Attorney General is named Loretta Lynch?
In fact, Clyde A. Lynch was an exemplary person who served as the chairman of the Pennsylvania Commission on Displaced Persons and as the national chairman of the Commission on the Resettlement of Displaced Persons with Professional Skills to “rende[r] exceptional service to suffering humanity.”
How is it logical for SJWs to supposedly ‘stand for tolerance and inclusion,’ then try to remove the name of a tolerant man?
