Major US City Now Bans ‘Founding Fathers’; UPDATE: City Walks It Back

The city of San Diego is being charged with taking political correctness to “a whole new extreme” by banishing the phrase “Founding Fathers” from the vocabulary of city employees.

“This brings it to a new level, without question,” said Brad Dacus, the chief of Pacific Justice Institute, which raised questions about the issue with the city and is challenging its censorship.

“When you can’t utter the phrase ‘Founding Fathers’ without possibly losing your job and you work for government, that is a sad day for free speech,” he told WND.


In a letter to San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, PJI Senior Staff Attorney Matthew B. McReynolds explained the city’s new “Visual and Correspondence Style Guidelines” held a number of novel demands for city employees . . .

“Many Americans, including city employees, will no doubt be surprised to learn that the city considers them biased for merely mentioning ordinary words and phrases like ‘the common man,’ ‘mankind,’ ‘manmade’ and ‘man up,’ to name a few of the manual’s parade of horribles,” McReynolds wrote.

UPDATE: City Walks Back its “Founding Fathers” Ban

By Bob Unruh. Officials in San Diego are walking back a directive in a new “Visual and Correspondence Style Guidelines” publication that had been issued to employees to not reference the “Founding Fathers.”

The instructions, as WND reported on Tuesday, warned against the use of “a number of words and phrases widely accepted in the English language,” according to a critic.

“Many Americans, including city employees, will no doubt be surprised to learn that the city considers them biased for merely mentioning ordinary words and phrases like ‘the common man,’ ‘mankind,’ ‘manmade’ and ‘man up,’ to name a few of the manual’s parade of horribles,” Matthew McReynolds, a staff attorney for Pacific Justice Institute, told city officials in a letter asking them to reverse their course.

They did a short time later, following WND’s report on the dispute.

“Suggesting that our Founding Fathers should be referred to as ‘Founders’ is political correctness run amuck. We are proud of our nation’s history and there is nothing wrong with referring to the Founding Fathers. Once the mayor became aware of this yesterday he directed the ‘Founders’ example to be removed from the document,” Matt Awbrey, the mayor’s chief of communications, told WND in an email.

    California, what do you expect… Next big shake, into the ocean you go!

    Sue them because they are suspending your freedom of speech….these city superiors need their pants sue off, especially if you lose your job.

    I’ve long thought that the country was disintegrating because of faithlessness and foolishness — this silly policy shows both!

      Stupid is as stupid does… Forest Gump, smartest guy in the room.

    OK by me because this means that we must cut all Federal Funds, all Federal Aid, all Federal funded scholarships, all Federal Student loans, All Federal Highway Funds, all Federal aid for terrorist immediately. We need to make the people of San Diego get a visa to enter any part of the U.S. This would greatly reduce the population of queers in the U.S. as well as just plain Nutjobs. I think it would be big economical gain for the U.S. So call your congressman today and insist that all funds be stopped.

    Shame on San Diego! I am a native Californian for which I use to be proud but now can’t wait to exit the state and never look back. It’s going down the drain.

  • TonysTake

    But they sure love their government welfare in San Diego! You know… the money that has the Founding Father’s faces plastered all over it. How about the rest of us banning sending that to the land of the nuts and the fruits?

  • spike

    Why doesn’t someone either give those people some work to do or make them redundant because there is obviously no justification for their jobs!
