The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), in its anxiousness to erase US history, erroneously included Stonewall Elementary School in Lexington, Kentucky, on its latest “hate map” because they assumed it was named after Confederate General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. However, the school was named after a literal stone wall that is historic to the area.
The hate group was informed of their error by the school and local historians who explained that an old masonry wall stood on the land of a local farmer and his family. A subdivision was later built on the property, along with the school, decades ago and was named Stonewall Estates. The school took on the name of the neighborhood. Portions of the wall still stand and the entrance to the neighborhood is built from the old stones.
The SPLC, which is fantastic at getting conservatives killed for their beliefs through these so-called hate maps, apologized for the inclusion and removed the school.
"It has been removed from our interactive map and is not included in the data set we've been providing to journalists since Charlottesville,” a director from the SPLC said.
That offers little comfort knowing that the school was active on the map for the last two months and could’ve have become a target of Antifa, or other leftists, hell-bent on destroying confederate monuments. SPLC’s maps have been used before in violent attacks, and this map came with a warning that, “More than 1,500 Confederate monuments stand in communities like Charlottesville with the potential to unleash more turmoil and bloodshed,” and urged people to “take them down.” Talk about stoking the fires.
Meanwhile, hundreds of other elementary, middle schools, and high schools remain as potential targets for violence thanks to the SPLC.
