The Peoples Republic of Massachusetts: Protestors demand Boston officials change Faneuil Hall’s name: ‘A White supremacist’

[The war on Whites never stops. I am quite amazed at the intensity of the war on Whites in the USA where everything White is now "supremacist" and has to be changed! This is crazy shit in a nation where Whites are still the majority. It shows the depth of the sickness of Jews who have been at work. Life is war! Get used to it! Jan]

I got this from an American along with the Orwell quotes:

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”
― George Orwell

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
― George Orwell, -1984

Protestors demand Boston officials change Faneuil Hall’s name: ‘A White supremacist’

Boston Mayor Michelle Wu’s office echoed the protesters’ concerns

Boston protesters gathered at Faneuil Hall on Wednesday to pressure officials to change the name of the city’s beloved landmark, calling it a symbol of "White supremacy."

Faneuil Hall was named after Peter Faneuil, an 18th-century merchant who offered to build Boston a market building in 1740. The building, which was finished in 1742 and rebuilt in 1762, was a hotbed of revolutionary activity in colonial Massachusetts. Samuel Adams and James Otis were known to give speeches there to express grievances against Britain.

But activists object to the fact that as a merchant, Faneuil was heavily involved in the Atlantic slave trade. Historical documents show that when Faneuil died, he owned five slaves, and once requested the purchase of an enslaved boy between the ages of 12 and 15.

"We should not have the name of a White supremacist attached to a publicly-owned building," said protestor Kevin Peterson. "That’s who he was. A White supremacist. A human trafficker."

Faneuil Hall, a Boston landmark, was a political hotbed during the Revolutionary era.

Several protestors chanted "Change the name, change the name," to the tune of the Destiny’s Child song "Say My Name" as they walked to City Hall and stood silently during a meeting, before marching onward to Faneuil Hall.

Whether the city plans to rename the building remains to be seen. City council member Tania Fernandes Anderson (Muslim born in Praia, Cape Verde) put forward a resolution to remove "prominent anti-Black symbols in Boston," which passed unanimously in June. Fernandes Anderson has referenced Faneuil Hall’s name as one of those symbols.

Mayor Michelle Wu has not revealed plans to name Faneuil Hall yet.

Mayor Michelle Wu (Her first language is Mandarin Chinese) has not revealed plans to name Faneuil Hall yet.

"There is no reason why, in 2022, a famous tourist attraction and business center in the City of Boston should be named after someone who grew rich by buying and selling enslaved Africans, and even at the time of his death, still owned five human beings," the city council member said.

Former mayor Marty Walsh flatly denied any plans to rename the building in 2018. Mayor Michelle Wu’s office did not reveal plans to change the name, but echoed the protestors concerns through a statement.

"As we work to build an equitable Boston for everyone, the city is committed to advancing racial justice and learning from our past and right wrongs," the statement read.
