NEVER ENOUGH: Activists Want to Remove More Monuments in New Orleans
By Andrew Posted on 2 days ago


A blind man could have seen this coming. It’s always the same story, every time, and it’s like…these officials never seem to get the picture. Or maybe they do. Maybe they’re a big part of it themselves. But if you ever feel like saying, “Well, just give them this one and then things can be peaceful,” what’s happening in New Orleans right now is Example #554 why that’s a foolish thing to believe.

In case you missed it, the New Orleans city council – with plenty of prodding from the mayor – just had four Confederate memorial monuments removed from public view. Over the protests of Confederate history groups and preservationist societies like the Monumental Task Committee, the city scrapped the statues of heroic figures like Robert E. Lee, supposedly because they represented the country’s racist, slavery-ridden past.

Okay, so it happened. Everyone’s ready to move on now, right?

Nope. You give an inch and they take a mile. Just listen to Malcolm Suber, the spokesman for Take Em Down NOLA, the activist group that fought for the removal of the original four statues. Suber says the city’s leaders shouldn’t stop at the Confederate monuments.

“We’re issuing an invitation to the mayor to finish the job. He has already begun the job, and we want him to finish the job,” said Suber at a news conference on Thursday.



The activist group said the city should remove additional statues, such as the one celebrating former President Andrew Jackson.

“What we would like to see in their place is people who stood for people and liberation,” he said. “For instance, we think since Harriet Tubman is going to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. We don’t understand why we can’t turn Jackson Square into Harriet Tubman Square. At Lee Circle, we don’t understand why we can’t turn Lee Circle into Dorothy Mae Taylor Circle. Dorothy Mae Taylor was one of the most courageous black leaders in this city. She led the effort to desegregate Mardi Gras.”

Oh wow, the effort to desegregate Mardi Gras. That’s a much bigger deal than anything Robert E. Lee or Andrew Jackson ever did…

But really, we don’t even have a problem with honoring Tubman or Taylor or any other historic black figure. That’s fine. That’s GREAT. But why do those honors have to come at the expense of heroic men whose stories are so integral to the rich heritage of the South and the United States as a whole? Why does this have to be an Us vs. Them scenario?

And of course the answer is that these people don’t give a DAMN about Harriet Tubman Square. They just want to cause division and trouble. They just want to have something to complain about. And no matter how many monuments New Orleans removes, they’ll find something else.

These wacko's are trying to rewrite and change history! It's the leftist PC crowd that have come to life in the last few years and fueled by the obozo regime and BLM! A few years back, they got "God" out of the schools and public places. Now they are after Civil War monuments and schools named for Southern Confederate leaders!
It's funny that for over 150 years, they all went to these schools and walked past the very monuments that they now want destroyed! Somehow it hasn't bothered them until now!

The wacko's are now moving on to Texas! They want Sam Houston's statues to be removed from the city of Houston! @#$%! Sheesh, the city bears his name and he is one of Texas' Founding Fathers! Houston city leaders are vowing that they will not allow a few PC crowd to win!

As a side note, our small town of 14,000 90 miles to the East of Houston, was sued two years back, by outsiders that were "offended" by a 20' concrete cross, that has been in the city park since the 60's and wanted it removed!
Our civic leaders and citizens rallied and now, not only does the cross in the park still stand, there are small, white, wooden crosses in 90% of the yards in our community! Also, in the surrounding communities, many have also placed small crosses in their yards in a show of solidarity! The socialist, radicals have since moved on to greener pastures!
We CAN win! But, we have to be willing to FIGHT!

I don't see any history erasing being done. We all learn about the Civil War, or I guess we should.


You know, had that revolt against the lawful government of George III gone the other way, all the guys who signed that Declaration would have been hanged. And you would not be seeing statues of them here and there.


It has always puzzled me that Davis, Lee, et al, were not hanged after the war ended.


Sam Houston, as I recall, declined to support the Confederacy. So I don't understand what the gripe is there.

Very sad that you cannot see what is happening. City after city caving in to the liberal clown who probably never even cracked a book about the civil war. A war that pitted brother against brother in a battle for what each side thought was right and there was a lot more involved in the reason for the war than slavery. Although you would never know it unless you actually read facts about the war. Those statues are part of our history, whether you like it or not and the destruction of these statutes is actually an attack on free speech and I for one find it disturbing that so many cities are caving in to the leftist garbage in helping them rewrite history. Hiding the Confederate battle Flag and tearing down statues does not alter the fact that Americans died on both sides and that history should not be burried along with the bodies of the dead. Had the south won, I am sure there would have been statues honoring Grant and Sherman and others who fought for the cause. I suppose you would have no problem with destroying their statues either!

Erasing history is exactly what they are attempting! Get rid of anything associated with the Confederacy, and poof! In a little time it doesn't exist!

As I said before, people have been passing by these statues and going to Confederate-named schools for generations! So, the question is: WHY ARE THEY JUST NOW BEING OFFENDED? Could it be that the radical, PC crowd IS NOW stirring the pot!

Also, look at how far it is STARTING to go! NOT ONLY remove Lee and Jackson! REPLACE them with Harriet Tubman and Dorothy Mae Taylor! Circle.

And I also call your attention to the National Anthem debacle!
They want it and a whole bunch more changed, because "America was never great,"
WHERE DOES IT END!!!!??????

Maybe because America was never like other communist, radical, barbaric countries that have slaughtered those that they've conquered!

Sam Houston, as I recall, declined to support the Confederacy. So I don't understand what the gripe is there.
Yes you are correct, Sam Houston DID NOT support the Confederacy!
The point is: The leftist, PC, radicals want to erase, silence and destroy EVERYTHING they don't agree with!
Kind of sounds like Islam instead of Constitutional America!

A couple more thoughts here, at the risk of being labeled a White Supremacist-Racist!
It is always overlooked that:
* Blacks WERE NOT, the first slaves in history! Slavery has existed since the beginning of time!
* In American slavery period, not only Blacks but, poor Whites, and poor anyone, were subject to being Slaves!
* "Free People of Color," i.e. Blacks, OWNED SLAVES!
* Slavery is alive and well today!
* Blacks that were SOLD as slaves, were SOLD to Americans by OTHER BLACKS, that were stronger and/or out-numbered them! So much for "unity," huh?

Right on the money JMM! Next thing you know the left will want the statues of the confederates on the battlefield at Gettysburg torn down and destroyed, and have any reference to the Confederacy removed from all text books. The US did not hang the Emporer of Japan after WWII, why would the North have hung Davis and his Generals? We are talking about open warfare, not spies sneaking around.

I agree with you, Oltimr. These historic sites shouldn't be removed due to a group of people being offended. They were a very significant part of US history. Speaking of the Civil war - I noticed some South Carolina DMV offices close on Confederate Memorial Day. I wonder how much longer they will be able to declare that a holiday.

You give an inch and they take a mile
What's interesting to me about this statement is the same could be said about abolitionists. It was taboo for people in the South to be labeled an abolitionist because if one were allowed to talk about ending slavery then perhaps it would become a reality one day.

The problem is, you cannot deny history by ignoring it and pretending it did not happen. And you are right, blacks were sold by blacks from other African tribes or trouble makers in their own tribe by the chiefs to Arab slave traders who sold them to Europe and North America. In fact, black tribes in Africa had black slaves captured in combat. I guess the left in America had completely forgotten that historical fact! Or it is just more convenient to ignore it.
