Geraldo Rivera, former talk show host, current Fox News contributor and, most importantly, the man who didn’t find anything in Al Capone’s vault, decided to resign from his voluntary position at Yale University after the school decided to change the name of a residential college that honored a slavery supporter.

Rivera was an associate fellow of Calhoun College. And he said the position was an honor, “but intolerant insistence on political correctness is lame.”

It shouldn’t come as a shock to those who’ve followed Rivera’s career, which has been on a downward spiral for decades, to find out he’s a racist sympathizer. Hell, he’s probably just racist.

Calhoun College was named after Vice President John C. Calhoun, a staunch supporter of slavery. As reported by The Root, the school will be renamed after scientist Grace Murray Hopper, also known as “Amazing Grace.”

In a statement, Yale said that the name change wasn’t made due to political correctness but because of principle.

“I made this decision because I think it is the right thing to do on principle,” Yale President Peter Salovey said. “John C. Calhoun’s principles, his legacy as an ardent supporter of slavery as a positive good, are at odds with this university.”

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

― George Orwell, from his book “1984"

Renaming historical buildings is the cultural marxists equivalent of toppling a statue upon a military invasion. The Marxists are slowly subverting our country. The subversion is so gradual that we will wake up one day to find we have been fundamentally transformed, imperceptibly, into a communist country. We are being conquered from within. We are in a state of undeclared war.

“We will take the United States without firing a single shot”-Nikita Khruschev

Calhoun was an American Founding Father and he is connected with the history of this country. Next you will justify the removal of the flag and the rest of our history. This is subversion. When your usefulness in the subversion is complete, you will be deposed of by the new “leaders” who will need stability to exploit the nation. FOOLS!
