The American Taliban who want to change the names of towns, military bases, streets and other locations to fit their weird, victimhood morality now want to rename Squaw Valley, Calif., but they are encountering resistance.

A petition to rename the locality in Fresno County, Calif. – calling it a derogatory term for Native American women – is being blasted by some residents as an act of tyrannical political correctness. The proposal to change the valley’s name was put to the Orange Cove City Council on Jan. 27 after a man named Roman Rain Tree formally made request in December.

The proposal says ‘squaw’ is a derogatory term used for Native American women and “perpetuates a sexualized, exploitative, and humiliating narrative that continues to focus the desires and disgust of early Euro-Americans on the bodies of Native American women,” it states.

In other words, let’s change history and make it better than the “old” history.

Supporters of the change are calling for the location to be renamed Nim Valley.

The proposal is bringing a backlash, however, with the Orange Cove Mayor Victor Lopez vowing to block it and social media users calling the name-changers “snowflakes,” or people who are too sensitive to deal with reality or other people.

Orange Cove Council members delayed the renaming in a teleconference meeting on Jan. 27. Fresno County Supervisor Nathan Magsig, who represents the Squaw Valley area, said Squaw Valley residents must be included in any discussion about a name change if it is put back on the table, reported YourCentralValley.com.

Magsig said in a Facebook Live earlier Wednesday he was “not interested in having any cities trying to tell communities outside of their city limits what the names should be of those communities.” He said residents had been contacting him concerned about the name change and insisted he did not support it unless the community itself wanted it changed.
