I haven't read anything about it yet. When is the Calhoun Mansion scheduled to be demolished? I'm assuming that must be next on the list.

It will burn to the ground. An electrical spark due to old wiring will be the cause. Old wood burns hot so FD could not stop it burning every last 2x4. The university admin will express Sadness.

BLM building with free snacks and a riot practice facility will replace it.

The Left wing wants to remove certain aspects of history from the history books,but the White House got it's name because of an historical event.Now take that out of the history books.

To which historical event are you referring?

The War of 1812?

President Roosevelt officially named it the "White House" in 1901.

because Senator Thurmond opposed civil rights legislation. Although his position waned significantly over the years, he never really renounced his earlier positions.

Calhoun mansion actually had nothing to do with John C Calhoun.

His grandson bought it 40 years after it was built.

Please refer to your Joseph Goebbels manual under "Best Practices" for "Removing and Whitewashing" history.

Personally, I won't get worried about any of this until the Native Americans say they want their land back. At that point we may all be sent packing.

Just a thought to make a compromise, maybe the official name of the Calhoun Mansion at Clemson University could be "Fort Hill".

He also owned a mansion in Charleston. Maybe that one can be renamed "The Mansion Formerly Owned by the Husband of Floride Bonneau".
