Those snowflakes on the left are constantly demanding that things change for them. Check out this fresh load of B.S.
The Equity Office of the city of Austin has been busy looking for things to be outraged about.
They have a list of places in the Texas capital that ‘need’ changing including the name of the city itself.
Known as both the “father of Texas” and the namesake of the state’s capital, Stephen F. Austin carved out the early outlines of Texas among his many accomplishments.
He also opposed an attempt by Mexico to ban slavery in the province of Tejas and said if slaves were freed, they would turn into “vagabonds, a nuisance and a menace.”
For that reason, the city of Austin’s Equity Office suggested renaming the city in a report about existing Confederate monuments that was published this week.
There’s a mood for renaming things in Austin, including 10 streets named for William Barton, a slave owner who was the ‘Daniel Boone of Texas’, Barton Springs, Pease Park, and the Boulden Creek neighborhood.
In addition, there were seven streets that were determined to require ‘more immediate action’ because the names are related to the Confederacy.
- Littlefield Street
- Tom Green Street
- Sneed Cove
- Reagan Hill Drive
- Dixie Drive
- Confederate Avenue
- Plantation Road
The cost to the city for the street name changes of those seven streets is estimated at $5,956.
There were complaints, however, that this would be a great inconvenience and to residents and business owners on those streets.
There were some people that accused the city of ‘whitewashing history’.
To change the city’s name would be much more difficult.
A change to the city’s name, meanwhile, likely would require an election since “Austin” would have to be struck from the city charter and replaced.
The report also identified numerous historical markers related to the Confederacy on city property that could be targeted for removal. Those include a marker for the Confederate States of America that’s located at Congress Avenue and Cesar Chavez Street.
However, the city would need approval from the Texas Historical Commission and the Travis County Historical Commission to move them.

Where will it end?
This will be a never-ending cycle of renaming.
In 2018, we can all agree that slavery was wrong — not so much in 1818.
What do we do now that society will condemn in two hundred years?
Will we be renaming the Obama Presidential Center because identity politics will fall apart and it won’t be socially acceptable to only identify as one half of your heritage?
