A school in London has changed the name of one of its buildings from ‘Churchill House’ named after Winston Churchill, replacing it with the name of a football player after students complained it wasn’t “diverse” enough.
Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School in Richmond replaced Churchill’s name with that of Marcus Rashford, a 24-year-old English football player.
“The children across school have been keen to change some of the names of the school houses to be more diverse,” the school noted, adding “We are pleased to be able to announce the name changes during Black History Month.
The school also renamed a house named after Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, presumably because Rowling is guilty of the sin of insisting that there are only two biological genders.
The headteacher of the school, Alison Bateman, explained “The changing of our school’s house names was an activity that our children began discussing last year as they did not feel the names reflected the diverse community of our school.”
Bateman added “It is important that children’s’ voices are heard and this is why we supported their choice to have our house names reflect diversity, equality and the environment.” (Another of the houses is named after climate change campaigner Sir David Attenborough.)
While the headteacher claimed that parents were on board with the changes, The Daily Mail interviewed some who clearly were not.
One parent said “A lot of us are quite shocked that the school authorities have decided that the contributions of Churchill and Rowling deserve to be erased from the records without so much as a consultation with parents.”
Th apparent added “Presumably this has happened party due to the supposed thoughtcrimes committed by these two national figures. For context, the other two – unchanged – house names are ‘Pankhurst’ and ‘Attenborough’.”
“I am not alone in feeling appalled that this cowardly action has been taken,” the parent further urged.
In addition, this isn’t the first time that both Churchill and Rowling’s names have been cancelled by a school. Earlier this year, Seaford Head School in East Sussex removed the names of the two from buildings following complaints by students about them being “intolerant.”
While the students described Rowling as not a “suitable representative,” they claimed “Churchill was a figure who promoted racism and inequality, unfairly imprisoning and torturing many.”
Historian Andrew Roberts hit back at the move, noting “Parents of children at Seaford School, and anyone considering sending their children there in future, need to know that the historical knowledge there is so abysmally low that the teachers believe that Winston Churchill committed crimes of which he was in fact entirely innocent.”
“Instead of trying to combat woke ignorance, they have submitted to it without trying to discover the truth. Churchill is in fact an incredibly inspirational figure for youth,” he added.
As we previously highlighted, woke academics are intent on rewriting history to paint up Churchill as a “white supremacist” who was leading an empire “worse than the Nazis”.
This kind of revisionist history being pushed by race baiting activists who have wormed their way into the fabric of schools and universities is having real world effects, as witnessed by the boxing up of Churchill’s Parliament Square statue, as well as the Cenotaph WWII memorial in London last year during Black Lives Matter led protests.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan also appointed a ‘task-force’ made up of unelected woke activists and campaigners to determine whether the capital’s statues and landmarks are ‘diverse enough’.
Winston Churchill led Britain to victory over Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, while Marcus Rashford gets paid millions of pounds to kick a ball around and promote Coca Cola.
Rashford has become a figure associated with contrived moral outrage after he missed a penalty in the European Championship final, and was subjected to racist abuse which turned out to be not from English fans on the whole, but from a minority of idiots posting on social media from other countries.
