(Tea Party 247) – A small village in the United Kingdom known as “The Little White Town” because of the numerous whitewashed buildings that make up the town, might be forced to change its name thanks to social justice warriors who feel the name is “racist.”
Because, as we all know, any time the word “white” is used in reference to anything, it’s somehow a race related issue, because that’s how critical race theory works.
If you didn’t already think progressives were cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, you probably do now.
Here’s more from Summit News:
Bideford, a historic port town in north Devon, south-west England, has a population of just over 17,000 according to the last census.
Signs for the town describe it as ‘Little White Town’, a moniker that has been in existence for the best part of 150 years.
As Jack Hadfield writes, “The phrase was first coined by the author Charles Kingsley, when he wrote about Bideford in his 1855 novel, “Westward Ho!” after seeing the many white properties that dot the local landscape. Many of the houses were ordered to be limewashed to prevent the spread of cholera at the time.”
However, Conservative Party Councillor Dermot McGeough says that there have been complaints from some people and that the name is “racist” and needs to be removed.
“Following a number of complaints from parishioners, I propose that the words “Little White Town” are removed from all signs within the town and at the town entrances,” said McGeough. “The wording “Little White Town” can be perceived as causing a racist slur and not politically correct. Therefore this issue should be rectified immediately. If this wording is not removed, the town council could be classed as a racist white supremacist.”
McGeough told the Telegraph, “It’s the right thing to do because we don’t want people thinking we’re a bunch of white supremacists.”
McGeough is an idiot and should resign immediately. He is an embarrassment to every single resident of Bideford and yet more proof that the so-called ‘Conservative Party’ isn’t conservative at all.
A poll showed that 69% of residents oppose changing the name while 31% support the measure.
A local man blamed the controversy on “the influx of people coming who think it’s racist,” adding, “All the people I associate with think it’s complete madness.”
Resident Liz Wilde called the proposal “absolutely bonkers,” commenting, “It’s part of our history. It’s because the houses were painted white because of the cholera risk, and I think it is really important to preserve that sort of thing.”
This right here is why social justice warriors have become the subject matter of nearly countless jokes and Internet memes. Their belief system is beyond ridiculous. No one is going to hear “Little White Town” and immediately think that it’s an entire city full of white supremacists.
If they do, that’s just proof that individual needs to seek some sort of mental evaluation to determine if they have a mental condition, because normal people do not think in such a way. Liberalism has always been believed to be a mental disorder.
As time marches on, that’s looking more and more legitimate.
