“Let’s Do It (Let’s Change Our Names)”

BY EDWARD KLEIN / SEPTEMBER 2, 2015

(With a tip of the hat to Cole Porter)

 

Movie stars do it, authors do it

Some married daughters still do it

Let’s do it, let’s change our names

 

Old Lenin did it, Robespierre did it

Even a famous racketeer did it

Let’s do it, let’s change our names

 

In Russia, the bold and bad did it

Made St. Petersburg Leningrad—yes, the Reds did it

Let’s do it, let’s change our names

 

During the French Terror, the Jacobins did it

November became Thermidor, that did it

Let’s do it, let’s change our names

 

Recently, Don Lemon on CNN did it

Hoped the Jefferson Memorial would go

Ask not why liberal TV folks do it—think of a freak show

 

Washingtonians can’t wait to do it

Scrap their city’s “slave” moniker and screw it

Let’s do it, let’s change our names

 

The Washington Post insists on doing it

Strip landmarks and cliffs across the fruited plains

Let’s do it, let’s change our names

 

The U.S. Treasury means to do it

Ban Andrew Jackson on the twenty-dollar bill

“Old Hickory” is being retired to give feminists a thrill

 

President Obama has gone and done it

Stripped Mt. McKinley for fun

Now every leftist wants to do it

More historical revisionism is sure to come
