Far left ‘cancel culture’ is now targeting Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln was born 212 years ago, and no one would dispute that he is one of the greatest Americans who has ever lived.

Well, almost no one.

A few weeks ago, the San Francisco Board of Education voted 6-1 to change the names of 44 schools in the city, and one of those schools bears Lincoln’s name. The school board said it would no longer honor anyone who owned slaves, oppressed women, and “significantly diminished the opportunities of those amongst us to the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Granted, Lincoln’s treatment of Native Americans was not perfect, and he said things that we now would consider racist, but how about judging Lincoln on the entirety of his accomplishments?

And how about not using 21st century standards to judge people who lived a couple hundred years ago?

This is like a bad parody of far-left, politically correct activism.
