New Orleans Begins Removing Confederate Monuments

After months of debate, the city of New Orleans began removing its Confederate monuments on Monday, a step supporters say is the first step towards distancing the city from a past rooted in slavery and racism. Perhaps to avoid pro-Confederate demonstrators, the city chose to remove the first of four monuments in the dark of night, with workers arriving at 1:30 in the morning to begin hauling away the Liberty Monument.

The monument has been called the “most offensive” of the four, having been erected in memory of those who tried to topple the post-war New Orleans government. In comments to the press, Mayor Mitch Landrieu said it was a monument created to “revere white supremacy.”

“If there was ever a statue that needed to be taken down, it’s that one,” he said.

The removal process was reportedly conducted by workers wearing helmets and bulletproof vests, guarded by police officers in sniper positions atop a nearby parking garage.

Statues commemorating Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis, and Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard will be removed by the end of the week.

“There’s a better way to use the property these monuments are on and a way that better reflects who we are,” Landrieu said. “The monuments are an aberration. They’re actually a denial of our history and they were done in a time when people who still controlled the Confederacy were in charge of this city and it only represents a four-year period in our 1000-year march to where we are today.”

The removal of the statues has been vigorously opposed by many groups, and not all of them have a particular stake in the pro-, anti- Confederate debate. For instance, the Monumental Task Committee released a statement blasting the city for the secretive, cover-of-darkness approach.

“The Monumental Task Committee has opposed moving and removing monuments throughout its 29 years,” said MTC president Pierre McGraw. “This removal completely lacks basic government transparency. The whole process has been flawed since the beginning, and this secretive removal under the cloak of darkness, outside of the public bid, masked contractors, and using unidentified money wreaks of atrocious government. People across Louisiana should be concerned over what will disappear next.”

It’s still not clear what this is supposed to accomplish, other than widening the divide between southern whites and blacks. People aren’t visiting these monuments so they can pray for the return of slavery. Confederate symbolism, to many in the South, stands for much more than the Civil War. It stands for their own upbringing, their own culture, and their own family heritage.

Perhaps the time has come to reconsider some of that symbolism, but this isn’t the way to go about it. To simply say, flat out, “Hey, your heritage is one of racism and evil”…that’s never going to get you anywhere. Respect goes both ways.

    Disassemble Black lives matter also. Take the peace prize and Kennedy award away from Obama the Islamic apologist and facilitator. Prosecute and put BO in jail.

      Yeah, he would have plenty of time to community organize in there.

  • pappy450

    Dissembling our HISTORY one “offended snowflake” at a time. Do these fools think they can change history by removing “symbols”?? Just another LIBERAL/COMMUNIST “wet dream” This is SICKENING.

    • Buzz Waldron

      They are part of a history no one should be proud of… move them to a museum of evil…

      • Jimmy Pickett

        You DO know don’t you, that the confederate army allowed freed slaves to join their ranks. The North did not. You probably also think the confederate flag is racist. You are part of the problem with the way this country has been lost to snowflakes. Go hug yourself in a corner and leave common sense and logic to people that have both.

        • Buzz Waldron

          Blacks served as free, paid soldiers for the North, as slaves for the South…

          https://www.civilwaracademy.com/civil-war-black-soldiers

          • Terry Helms

            No blacks were not paid by the union government at first, white officers had all most commit mutiny to get them paid at all. Then the blacks that served were not paid the equivalent of their white counterparts, they were also segregated units.
            Where as the free blacks and some slaves that accompanied their masters, were not only serving among the white confederate soldiers but were also paid the same.
            You are also trying to say that any black that served in the confederate army was less than patriotic.
            No fan of slavery here, but I know that no man or woman that served at any time is any less patriotic than any other. Remember there were no mass exidos of the blacks serving in the confederate army to the union side, and there was plenty of chances. You need to read, forgotten confederates. One of the folks that helped with reference material of that book I know personaly. He is a wealth of information on blacks that served, why he himself is black and was doing ancestry of black families in North Carolina.
            We voted Mr. Rudolf Young the command of our Son Of Confederate veterans camp. He also had a ancestor that served in the confederate army. I had ancestors on both sides. The union did not fight the war to free blacks. Lincoln himself said” if keeping slavery, will preserve the union, we will keep it. ” it wasn’t till the union government thought other countries were going to recognize the confederate states in 1863, as a sperate country, did the slavery issue come to be the new reason for the war. Monuments were not put up on either side to do anything but give respect and honor to the folks that fought the war, not an ideal. 98% of folks on either side fought because it was their duty to their country, not to free anyone or keep anyone in bondage.
            What next revolutionary war monuments? World War 2? World War 1?
            I am glad the Union servived. Humans have inslaved humans from times beginning. This Country(all of it )has done more for it’s own people and others around the world than europe or any others. If you want to helps slaves, start a campaign to free the slaves of today, in muslim countries like saudi arabia and africa, leave our history monuments and all alone. Forget the past and it could be repeated. I am proud of all my ancestors, even if you are not.

          • Edward

            The war was not fought to free the slaves at all. They were freed later to help the north win. Not because the north cared if they were slaves or not. The north sent slaves back south in the beginning of the war.

          • Rex Whitmer

            No, you’re right. There were people whom believed that slavery was immoral, but the main reason was that the North had industrialized, and wanted the cotton that the south was sending to England for their mills! John Brown fired the first shot at Fort Sumpter, and he was a radical anti slaver. Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin which would have done much to relieve slavery. Men from the North made their own brigades to march on the South with ideas of glory, but the glory was very gory. The repeating rifle eventually beat the south. By far the best soldiers were from the south, but the North was by far the most brutal! They had no problem with killing women, children and even slaves!

          • Rodney Steward

            I’m with you 100%, but to he$$ with any muslims!

          • Krazeehors

            I agree. It was the Civil War and the treaty/surrender that followed that established the United States, once and for all, as a UNITED COUNTRY.

          • Terry Helms

            I hate that 600 thousand Americans lost their lives, and 3 million horses and mules, because politicians could not resolve their, greed issues. As usual military men and women have to go fight because of the greedy. I love my country, after having been to a couple others, I can say we are not perfect no country is but we got the others beat by far.
            A visiting statesmen( hah )
            from united kingdom while visiting a civil war battle, said if the north and the south ever resolve their diffrences and come together, America would have a force unstoppable throughout the world.
            Now tell me what country has had the power, we have, and held such constraints as our country has. From just taking what they want?
            None. If America wanted even now, with our forces degraded by war and obama, if we were so inclined we could at least own and control this hemisphere of the world, but evem in our youngest days as a county America just wanted to be left alone and to trade freely.
            Semper Fi!

          • Rex Whitmer

            Well, maybe, if the Liberals don’t try to create a civil war again. They seem to hate, much more than they love. We see them in the streets and elsewhere screaming, chanting and fighting. For what? I doubt that they even know? Apparently they will follow straight to HELL? Of course most of them deny either Heaven or Hell. Too bad!

          • Krazeehors

            I agree. It’s like they are throwing a years long temper tantrum. Of course, if Republicans do it, Katie bar the door from their angst.

          • carla AMERICAN

            I agree they don’t know why they’re angry, are fighting for !They just know they get paid for rioting and destroying America ! My family were swedish (very white and high cheekbones )and cherokee that were indentured slaves that were brought to America with plants ( trees, vegetables, fruits,animals, etcetera ) that would diversify and bring money to pay off their slavery status. Those ancestors mated witch other cultures ESPECIALY those who migrated to the south and near the Choctaw indians. I am from both northern and southern Indians of America and white Swedish, Slaves, not black slaves yet you don’t hear us complaining about being sold into slavery by our own race and people. We worked hard, in the cold weather, for slave owners, sent money back to our families in Sweden and helped Sweden survive. If you think about all the different countries that sold their own people and shipped them to America and Americans sent money back home to help their families survive and supported their countries EXCEPT BLACK AMERICANS who continually cry and misuse their slavery to destroy, scream racist, demand more in government assistance. Why ?

          • Reb

            And there lies the problem.

          • Krazeehors

            We would not be the great country we are had things been different. What was done to the South during reconstruction and after was inexcusable. Reconstruction did not, apparently, mean forgiveness.

          • nancy miller

            Not true!

          • Terry Helms

            Oh and nancy, dear lady the emancipation proclamation, freed exactly no one, read it completely through. Read especially the part were, the act is written in “states that are in rebellion, all other areas” ,no darling not all slaves in the north were free at that time mor directly after the war,( again read. The actual documents are there, if you look and not from southern anyone but your loving caring union). Back to proclamation after that little pesky part Lincoln then named the areas that could keep their slaves, which were areas in union control, again read! The proclamation could not be enforced outside union controled areas. Now which amendment actually freed slaves, and what year was it ratified come on, look it up?

          • Terry Helms

            Oh yes, another interesting fact the government doesn’t like admitting. From 1865 till 1867, the famous freedman bureau sold recently freed slaves, down to south american county for sugar and cotten plantations, just file your foia papers for that one, Mr.Young had to file many.
            About other savery today outside muslim countries and africa, try sex slaves here and in south america,and asia. Most of the sex slaves here are gang and illegal alie

          • jaybird

            We are now finding out about the “political pedophile ring” and the elite, Hollywood, etc. that has been happening to children for many years all over the world. Hundreds have been arrested in the US since POTUS appointed Jeff Sessions as AG. It is in the UK (I have seen videos of young children that were involved), it is also said that it is in the Royal Family. Dr. Phil exposed it on his show after investigating for 4 mos. and the Dutch cancelled the program, wonder why??? This story is for another day!

          • Terry Helms

            Yes and we can not forget ole Bill’s boat rides out to the islands or was it plane rides or both hum?
            Young girls, out in international waters hum?
            Oh wait he didn’t see any or was it know any, guess that goes along with depends on what your definition of sex is? As well as, He didn’t inhale? Anyone seen Bill Sinclair since he came out about obama? Least obama admits to inhaling.

          • Rex Whitmer

            He flew, no boat ride!

          • Rodney Steward

            And I guess you think the Civil War was over slavery too! The North DID NOT FREE their slaves till 2 years after the war!

          • Terry Helms

            We know also before, slavery was abolished in the north, New York was the biggest slave trade state, a large slave market was unearthed not long ago up there, and do not forget the race riots in new york city alone, blacks both run away slaves and freedmen, were hung from street lamps, but you have to actually start reading about more history, why in the news papers of the times it is there for all to see.

          • Rodney Steward

            It’s a sham that history is so wrong, but the North won it so they got to write it their way, make us look like we were mean and evil, and they were the savior’s!! And they started the war to begin with!

          • Terry Helms

            You are so right. The old axium to the victor go the spoils, had hitler not been beat, just think of the written history. People are not taught about Lincoln’s hate and untrust of the black race, and how he and many others of that time period, thought africans/black were much inferior to the white race. That is as the times then were. People also think that slaves were the only folks that got whippings. It is not until they actually start reading from the actial time period, they find out the punishment handed out to all. They also find out that there were actual Black/freedmen that owned plantations in the south, and they oh no owned slaves like all people, there were bad black plantation owners that mistreated their black slaves.

          • Rodney Steward

            Exactly my friend, Lincoln was not the good guy as it has been taught in history, he had a mean side to him, and your right, he cared nothing at all about the blacks or them being free!

          • Terry Helms

            The uneducated, do not know of the forced repatriation of the blacks Lincoln and the north wanted. Till they are faced with the truth of liberia, I can not rember right now the island the union took freed blacks to and basically forgot about them till after the civil war was over. Generations of living in America at that time did not make for their survival. The island was empty, no trace of the poor folks they had left there with no support.

          • Rex Whitmer

            Liberia is on the west coast of Africa. They purchased the land with the iidea of taking them all back to Africa. It didn’t work out too well, but I think it’s likely still one of the better run nations in South Africa. Never been there, but I understand English is the language.

          • Rex Whitmer

            His wife’s family were slave owners!

          • Rodney Steward

            So was he, he wanted to put all backs on a reservation like the Indians and already had a spot picked out in south Texas, I seen the map in a history book, it only failed by 2 votes!

          • jimmy midnight

            Facts R stubborn things, Confederate monuments R facts that should be preserved–in museums.

          • jaybird

            One track mind!

          • Reb

            Bullshit! The black confederate soldier was paid the same as the white. Confederate soldier while in the north they were paid less. Hard truth to swallow isn’t it yankee?

      • Phaedrus51

        Thousands died on both sides and we should remember why. If the history of the why and where and what of the Civil War offends you, you need to see it for what it is. A bench mark and a daily opportunity to do better today, than they did in 1860.

        • Lynne Douglas

          History, whether positive or negative, is never-the-less history. It makes no sense to “edit” it by the
          removal of these monuments. Keep in mind also, that Lincoln actually advocated sending slaves
          back to Africa. Does this mean that some day, the Lincoln Memorial in D.C. will be torn down????

          • Krazeehors

            I agree. This is ridiculous. First it was the rewriting of our history and the total LACK of history education in our schools.

            Where will it stop??

            We are on the march to begin paying “reparations” to families of former slaves, and that is completely ridiculous.

            Does Mitch Landrieu even REALIZE that America did NOT exist 1,000 years ago???

          • Dick

            Perhaps Mr. Landrieu and the rest of the snowflakes would like to destroy ALL American monuments and give the country back to the Indians? Or maybe the Neanderthals? These monuments are part of the country and our history. Whether you like it or not.

          • Chandler

            It will stop when the haters of America, destroy this country and it’s legal citizens !! When the Democrat party of Socialist,far left leaning Progressives and the Communist take over totally and the Freedoms, laws and Constitution are destroyed and the World’s citizens move in and take over America, and we are no more. That is when.

          • chief1937

            Using today’s attitudes probably yes as it just might offend someone years from now. For goodness sake there is probably not anyone alive today that owned any slaves. It was a page of this country’s history right or wrong just like what is going on today will be in the future if there is one.One can not change history by removing monuments period.

      • John D

        Not until Obama’s statue is in that same museum.

        • Rex Whitmer

          Obama never was a slave. It’s even doubtful that he’s really a real Black man. His momma was a white hippy and his daddy was a mix of Arabian and Black. When his daddy was jailed his momma came home to the USA for a time then married a Muslim from Indonesia. He was adopted by his new father, and went by his surname until he began associating with George Soros. He roomed with Muslims while he went to college in New York, then used his birth certificate to obtain a foreign student scholarship!

          • carla AMERICAN

            Where can i obtain the information that obama used his birth certificate to obtain a foreign student scholarship? ?

      • Rodney Steward

        You don’t know anything about history boy, slavery started up North to began with! And guess what, the Dems. still keep them as slaves, remember the famous words of LBJ!

      • Miz M

        To sanitize history to spare some people’s feelings isn’t the point. Those who don’t remember (or know) history are condemned to repeat it.

        • Rodney Steward

          Amen friend!

      • Krazeehors

        Why? History is progressive. Were it not for our past history, we would not be where we are as a country today. And I, for one, am NOT ashamed of that.

        History is what it is. Had you actually READ anything about our history you might just understand that.

      • bttrap

        yea that will change everything

      • George2

        The North was NOT against slavery. Individuals were. The South did not secede over any slavery issue, nor to continue slavery. The Democrats of THAT TIME were actually FOR slavery. The seceding states were fighting for sovereignty of the states. The history books have erasd this fact…and what else are they trying to erase?

        • Buzz Waldron

          LIAR !!! The North won the war and ENDED SLAVERY… of course, the North was also fighting for business reasons… Northern businesses paying wages couldn’t compete with Southern slave businesses…

          The “sovereignity” the South wanted was to CONTINUE SLAVERY… and make all new states be slave states… that wasn’t erased…

          • Rex Whitmer

            Testimony on this blog has already disproved your “truth”. There were some whom fought for it, but they were in no way able to start the war excepting by firing on Fort Sumpter

          • George2

            There is a popular saying…”Ignorance is bliss”, but ignorance is bliss only to those who are ignorant…or those who will not accept the truth. You must be one of those “ignorant” Democrats who do not, or will not accept the truth. Facts, son…as recorded in EARLY history.

  • Morton99

    Its well overdue. To keep monuments lauding the time when humans were traded as cattle is disgraceful. The monuments should be housed in a museum dedicated to human rights.

    • mica

      There are no monuments lauding slavery.

  • downs1

    So without the monuments, we can safely say that all the complaints about slavery and racial prejudice and racial violence never happened! Right? When the Black folks yell and shout about how “Whitey” misused and abused them, and the Confederate States denied them their human rights, they will have no basis since history has been removed and erased! Right? So sad! But . . . that same thing is happening to religious freedom and elsewhere in our society! Judeo-Christian belief and heritage is also being erased! It’s as if some puny, idiotic, unbelieving, liberal lawyer in the ACLU can say, “There is no God!” Oh my! That’s the definition of a “fool”! (Psalm 14:1).

    • Buzz Waldron

      Actually, they were perpetrators of racism that belong in a museum, not on public land…

      • jaybird

        They need to be seen by the people, not a lot of people go to museum’s anymore! You going to take their names and what happened out of the history books, oh most of that has already been done! Stupid, stupid, stupid.

            You are fool and it is people like you that are cowards and refuse to defend this Country.

          • chief1937

            And are you going to decide which is good and which is evil? Is it evil to care for Another which is what some slave owners did. Yes there was those who were evil but there were others who were good and some slaves choose to stay with the people who before owned them even though they were free to go. We should embrace the past and learn from it not destroy it.

          • jaybird

            Like your reply chief. I don’t think we can change stupid’s logic, but maybe will give him and others something to consider.

            I am trying to keep up with the local college kids and what they want to do in my town, every street and road is named after a past President or some other patriot. There is a major hwy. going through my town (Jefferson Davis Hwy) and into the South, they wanted to change that-can you imagine the cost of address changes to all the businesses and homes!

            I found out they were doing a protest about the pipeline (does not even come near my state) and alerted the police and National Guard and gave on line proof of the organization on line to them. It was not publicized. They appreciated what I did.

      • mica

        Do you honestly believe that any and everyone in power in the beginning of this country was a racist?

    • Lynne Douglas

      I know a woman who hates Thomas Jefferson because he had slaves. She fails to understand that having slaves
      at that time was “normal.” There were slave-owners who treated their slaves with compassion and were active in
      keeping slave families together, as opposed to the cruel owners who abused their slaves horrendously. Jefferson
      did so much good for our country, and hating anything to do with him simply because he reflected the times in
      which he lived is ignorant. Given a few decades after that era, I’m sure Jefferson would have freed his former
      slaves and been active in making sure they had full citizenship with all of its privileges and responsibilities. Not
      all confederate leaders were “evil.”

    • Chandler

      Good morning jaybird , good to see you are still around !!
      Love you post and agree totally.

      • jaybird

        Thanks Chandler, good to see you posting also and agree with your common sense and intelligence!

        I live in a town that George Washington & relatives and others lived and stayed. Monticello is not far from here, Mount Vernon is not far from here, wherever we take our children, it is an opportunity to education them about the past. Actually seeing where these people lived & talking about the past is a lot more interesting than a museum for school age children or for me. Battlefields are not 10 miles from my home.

    • jim_wright

      The real issue is the democrats and leftist covering up the fact that they have always been the party of racism, hate, and violence.

  • jim_wright

    When you forget the past, you are doomed to repeat it. That’s even more true when the past is intentionally coveted up and covered up with lies. The democrst party and the left are the party or lies, racism, and violence.

          These people want to censor the truth; they are exactly like 1984 and the muslims. They need to ERASE all history and traditions so that they can create a “new” utopian ideology (Marxism) in all the children where Slavery is Freedom, Up is Down, Boys are Girls, and Vice is Virtue. They are totally removed from Reality and Truth (God).

          Those who can control Words and Culture, can control the beliefs and the ideas of little children. They don’t want knowledge of history, so that we will repeat it.

          Vice creates only slaves and they teach children that vice is virtue to destroy logic in children. It is good to sodomize others or kill your own genetic offspring when it uses others in evil, filthy ways, as a Means to an End, which is unconstitutional under our TRUE “Justice” system. Evil is never a “Natural” (LOL) “Right” (LOL) from God. There is no such thing as “evil” law that is constitutional in America. Yet, evil judges have warped our Justice system and destroyed words/language so they could flip 2000 years of ethics back to the slave, pagan ethics of collective, tribal minds. Our Justice System is now an irrational Vice System—to destroy Christianity (Reason and Logic) so that tyranny (slavery) can be re-instituted.

          This destruction of our Statues/Heritage shows you how evil and ignorant these useful idiots are who want to erase all the wisdom learned throughout the ages. Only Christianity ended slavery–all other belief systems and tribal systems still love and practice slavery, like in muslim, Asian and Africa countries today. They need to fight the Slavery of today in muslim, Asian and African nations that is still rampant. The Marxists (fascists) inside our country, especially child-sex-traffickers, ( CIA in White House (Franklin Cover-up)) and the international sex/child/organ trafficking like the Clintons were involved with in Haiti needs to be exposed. Also, the crime organizations that are literally killing babies and selling their body-parts to corporations. Why not attack true evil?

        Why? Is it not part of your past also? Public land belongs to ALL of us or it isn’t public.

        • Susan

          Then, why do they ban the founding ethic system of America: Christianity, which created our “Justice” (virtue) system and the Age of Reason and Modern Science? Since Justice is the Queen of Virtue in Western Civilization, there is only ONE ethic-virtue system which treats EVERY human being equally under the law. All other “ethic” systems are evil, and irrational and removes Natural Rights from God in some people which is unconstitutional, unlike Christianity. Why, since the 60s, have the public lands and publik indoctrination factories (skools) allowed to censor (ban) Christianity at all??? They promote sodomy and baby-killing (Ba’al Rites) to little children so that they normalize vice and warp children so they become satanists or humanists or materialists, etc. All ideas promote a “faith”—there is no possibility of separation of Man and Faith—-or Ideas and Faith.

          True, public lands should belong to the States (the people) and not the Federal government and they are ours—but Hillary and Harry Reid, etc., and her herds of satanists as they traffic children, ban Christianity as they sell off our mineral rights in our “federal” lands to foreign governments, so that they or their children can pocket millions of dollars.

          • ray Maurer

            Susan, you ought to go back into this site and re-post this message as a new one, not a reply to another one. I support you 100%. More readers here should see your ideas.

            I am an atheist, so this talk of the devil, or God, etc is just an interesting set of stories to me. But I support Christians and their beliefs, and would fight to defend them.

            Over 600,000 men died in the US Civil War. My ancestor was one of the 48th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry regiment that dug the tunnel, and blew a hole in the Confederate fortifications at Petersburg. Their is a monument to that regiment in front of one of the local Petersburg bank branches. I have the greatest respect for the courage of the fighting men of both sides, and hate to see this history obliterated.

          • l2a3

            FYI they are trying to do that as you speak.

        • Laurence Almand

          A group of people should simply buy the land the monument sits on and declare it private property, so the reverse-racists can’t touch it.

          • Chandler

        The SNOWFLAKES should remember that they may be setting themselves up for a future they will not like. Since everything seems to be speading up anymore, if Civil War monuments have only been allowed to last for less that 150 years and thing now are 100’s of times faster than in the 1800’s. How long should MLK pictures be tolerated 2years? 3 Yrs? ?????

      • What makes you think it is “revered”? A few things are about me that I do not love, but it never occurred to me that they should be removed to make me feel better. When will the babying stop? I find that somehow I have been transported to a huge NURSERY for the supremely young population, and I despise it! Time the left GROWS UP and becomes men and women, NOT kids without any responsibilities or any truths.

        Erasing history is no answer for any problem, but those who feel guilty always want to erase it. I feel no guilt whatsoever about how blacks were treated. I am not happy they were treated unlike every other American, but I had no part of their slavery and hence have no feelings of guilt. Neither should YOU feel any guilt if you had no part in it. Feeling guilt for someone else’s horrid behavior is insanity on parade. I do not pity blacks because pity is a form of insulting someone. I regret they had problems, REAL problems. I hope they regret that some of the rest of us also have had REAL problems that we do NOT whine about.

        • jreg9304

          You are so right, there is no erasing history, Especially of our country’s youth. Hell, our Country right now is just in the toddler stage of growth and Maturity is still long in coming. If you follow my insight!

          • Were any of today’s democrat party sane, I’d say we are in the toddler stage, but all of the political left has thrown sanity out the door, and as a result I sincerely believe our country matured as much as possible decades ago and is now in a death spiral. Sad, but that is how I see it. IF conservatives can get things done while Trump is in office, we stand a slight chance of seeing improvement in the political left’s brain power; hence could possibly save the nation, but as long as insanity rules uninterrupted, our nation is GONE.

          • Susan

            Read “1984”. There is “erasing” in the minds of our children right now—with the indoctrination factories that are embedded dependency and lies and disinformation in our children. They have been emasculating little boys, since the 70s, to “kill God” (Postmodernist/Marxists). The schools are also normalizing vice in little children (sodomy and baby-killing) so that they can erase the Christian worldview in children, to flip 2000 years of history back to the pagan, pederastic Ancient cultures (like Afghanistan today with their harem boys). Vice creates slaves for the State (Aristotle) Without virtue formation in little children (taken away from Reality (the Natural family)), children can be easily warped and have agency (individualism) destroyed for “group-(non)-think” only, so no virtue is possible—only dysfunction and addiction. These brainwashed snowflakes are easily controlled and managed by the “group organizers” (Marxists).
            Google Fichte, 1810 Free Will, Snow is Black. This plan to take over the minds of little children is over 200 years old. Lenin knew if you gave him children for 4 years, he could own them for life. Our children are put in front of screens and in artificially controlled environments 24/7 now—unlike the people who had agency like a Davy Crockett and our Founders who NEVER were in these group indoctrination centers. Tutoring and homeschool like Theodore Roosevelt created the Great Thinkers during the Age of Reason and when Modern Science was possible—with ONLY a Christian worldview which invented concepts of Free Will and individualism (freedom and Natural Rights only from God). No other worldview is possible with our Constitution of US, which can’t use others as a Means to an End–like in slavery, sodomy, baby-killing, etc. (We now have a Vice System instead of a “Justice” (virtue) system.)

          • Wow! Bingo!!!

        • Susan

          Whites being enslaved is the origin of the word “slavery”. All groups had/have slavery. Over a million whites were made into slaves by muslims, the chief slave traders, and the Jewish bankers funded the Slave trade. You don’t EVER see the “blame” for slavery going to the groups who virtually made slavery possible (like the Africans, and the money of the Jews which funded the ships). Africa still has rampant slavery and child-sex/organ trafficking (by UN) on their continent. Only Christians made the institution of slavery into “Evil”. No other ideology at all helped to end slavery. That is why the ONLY war and censorship is on Christians and Christian traditions, history, etc. (Western Civilization) because they have to erase those ideas of the Founders (Christian worldview) which created the most brilliant, free, civil, just government in the history of mankind. This fascist, Marxist movement of “group-think” is to destroy our children and remove the words/language and images (culture) that create the mindset of the Founders. They want us made into dumb, ignorant cattle (our indoctrination factories need to be eliminated) like they succeeded with the snowflakes—just addicts and people of vice, and useful idiots, who are incapable of critical thinking and virtue. Truth (God) creates “cognitive dissonance” in these idiots, just as Common Core has embedded psychologic warfare into the curricula to destroy the minds (reason/logic) of our children with their lies and disinformation and embedding of dependency and vice.

          • Interesting. I did a bit of researching re your comments and they are spot on. Thanks for telling the left something that not all Americans KNOW! 😉

          • Rex Whitmer

            Actually the Blacks of Africa raided villages taking them to Muslim buyers whom in turn took them to European buyers and later American buyers.

          • Laurence Almand

            Susan – You are correct. People forget (or deliberately ignore) the fact that Muslims created the African slave trade almost 1,000 years before the New World was even discovered. And the Muslim world still has slavery in places like the Sudan.
            Yet stupid African-Americans join the religion! Talk about ignorance!

          • Chandler

            The African Blacks used there neighbors in slavery also, so the fault lies with who ever sold the slaves in the first place.

          • Rex Whitmer

            Slavery is about as old as human history when you get down to it. Most civilizations had rules and laws about slave treatment, that were also ignored at times. People actually sold themselves into slavery. One of my ancestors came to America by selling himself as an indentured (slave) servant for ten years. In America we are deemed free, but many people sell themselves into slavery of a sort, by over using their credit. In many nations persons of this type were either imprisoned or made virtual slaves to a richer person whom would pay their debts. Slavery is never pretty, nor is it to be desired. I went to college with some young Muslim men who’s father purchased a slave companion for them until they tired of her when she would either be sold elsewhere or be returned to her family! The people of North Koriea are all actually slaves to their government and of course everyone is a slave to Kim!

          • Rex Whitmer

            They are! Right now this nation is headed to a loss of freedom as they have never known. The so called Health Care Law is the vehicle for that to begin with. Socialism makes slaves and subjects out of everyone out of the government! They will be the slave masters of the future. Political correctness is another leading principle that make us all slaves! Children are being taught the beauties of slavery in all phases of our education now, from pre school through college! Parents no longer care or are allowed to care about what their children are being taught, morally or otherwise! Parents turn the care of their children to government regulated centers while both parents forget what it was like to be a member of a true family! They are being brought to a government group to be taught morals, goals, and meanings by uncaring care givers! Not all parents or good, but they are usually better than uncaring care givers!

          • So very true, but let me lay something on you: it is true, as you say that all legal citizens have the same rights as every other legal citizen. But very few citizens have the same rights as every criminal politician in the nation. You may get the idea I do not trust politicians, nor do I love them,nor do I rely on their character. There actually are a few good people who are politicians, but it seems they are so few as compared to those who constantly commit criminal and/or hateful acts.

          • Chandler

            No one with a brain thinks that the Democrats give a flip about our Country or the legal citizens . No do the republican gang of *++ they are no better.

        • Reb

          It’s all about erasing the white mans history and then the white man. First you demonize race and place blame on that race for every problem in that society. Then you get the majority of the people to believe it. Then once you have the support of the majority of those that think the same way you do you implement your plan. Sounds familiar doesn’t it? Nazi Germany? Why do you think white people are demonized now? Eventually They’ll be sending white people to the gas chamber.

          • Reb

            They start in the southern United States and erase the white mans history and then they move north and erase the white mans history all with the help of white people. They use the south first as it’s an easy target because of its past, then they move north and come up with the excuse that the reason crime is so bad and so much of the crime is being committed by blacks is because of the white mans policy.

        So, YOU have the right to “judge” the hearts of the Confederates by today’s standards? Mmmmmmm. Very arrogant and ignorant of you. Then, why not destroy all the Arab mosques in the USA, since the muslims were the chief slave runners, along with the Jewish bankers, those who funded the Slave Trade?

        Why not force all islam out of America, since they support misogyny and polygamy (unconstitutional acts)–treating women unequally under their “law”–which is today’s slavery and a dehumanization of woman? Why “pretend” moral superiority to those who gave their lives for freedom from an evil, tyrannical federal government, although slavery needed to be ended, then, it was still a universal accepted institution in Asia and Africa, even in places today. Slavery still goes on in muslim countries as in all Asian countries where the sex and organ trafficking of children has NEVER ended. Why not go after the CURRENT slavers instead of trying to destroy our understanding of history and removing history like the fascists, muslims, and Marxists do—to erase ideas in the minds of children so that evils can be re-instituted. All children need to learn about the past and there were heroes on BOTH sides. There never is a perfect side–ever. The North was not “perfect” and did unconstitutional things. The North was filled with people who profited from slavery, also, and wanted it to continue—-go study history.

            One Federal judge should not be able to rule on a law for the whole country. If you notice the rulings against trump were from federal judges on the west coast, e.g., California, a very liberal state. Federal judges for a certain district are chosen for their political leanings not so much for being wise and should only have power in their appointed jurisdictions.

          • Jimmy King

            Stop repeating the bullshit you hear on TV. The suit was in response to the Orange morons order on sanctuary cities. The City that brought the suit was San Francisco. They didn’t choose to file suit in the 9th Circuit, THEY ARE IN THE 9th Circuit. They had NO CHOICE, but to file the case there. Clearly you don’t understand how the Federal judiciary works. So far, that is the only ruling on a Federal level. So it is by default, the rule of the land. If a judge in Texas was to decide a different way, the initial ruling would no longer be the rule of the land.

          • Reb

            Okay, but that judge’s order should not apply across the United States and in fact he should not rule at all. Immigration is clearly in the realm of the president according to the Constitution. Besides all that these sanctuary cities and these federal judges are abrogating the oath they took to the Constitution by allowing CRIMINALS, e.g., illegal aliens to break the law and to harbor law breakers. It’s called obstruction of justice.

          • Jimmy King

            Reb, WTF are you talking about?? Clearly you don’t understand the law and the judiciary. This judge isn’t “Abrogating his oath” nor is he “allowing criminals” to do anything.

            San Francisco sued to block Trump’s attempt to cut off Federal funds. Funds that are appropriated by Congress. Funds that once they are ear marked can not have additional conditions put on them. The President does not have the authority to decide who gets the funds or how they are used. That power belongs to Congress. THE ONLY THING THIS JUDGE Ruled on. The ONLY ISSUE before him, was Trump’s unconstitutional attempt to limit, already allocated federal funds.

            That was all that was before him to rule on. He didn’t allow illegals to do anything

          • Reb

            But if you think about it the judge is showing his approval for illegal immigration, maybe not actually coming out and saying it but the federal funding is tied to illegal immigration, i.e. sanctuary cities and what the judge said in his ruling that he said he used trumps comments about illegal aliens to rule the way he did. Try to sugarcoat it any way you like but the bottom line is he doesn’t want to enforce the law on illegal immigration.

          • Jimmy King

            You don’t understand judicial review. The judge wasn’t making ANY ruling on sanctuary cities or immigration. He ruled that what Trumpochio was trying to dowas unconstitutional because the 10th Amendment restrictions on the power of the federal government require that the federal funds at stake be related to the policy in question, so that, for instance, housing funds cannot be yoked to immigration laws.

            Because the Constitution gives Congress the federal wallet, the president may not impose new conditions on federal funds to municipalities. The Supreme Court has held that the federal government cannot compel states to administer a federal program.

            That is what the judge ruled on. Trump may have wis panties in a wad now and may thing that you’re correct on the ruling but it’s only because he doesn’t understand the constitution

          • Reb

            There is evidence that this judge gave $200,000 to Obama. Don’t you find that kind of strange since judges usually do not get involved that way in politics as doing that casts a shadow of doubt on them being unbiased? I still say what the judge did was indirectly disguised at thwarting Trump from implementing sanctions against immigration/sanctuary cities. Of course that’s only my opinion but it does reek of political pandering by this judge to the democrat/leftists which by the way the 9th circuit is located.

          • Rodney Steward

            It’s hard to get anything done that, that black B-TARD appointed that’s for sure!

          • Tammy

            Right? These folks are truly void of any common sense.

          • Rodney Steward

            First off these brown clown appointed idiots are going against the Constitution, look at Opey the clown, what did he do about the transgender bathrooms, he said that any state that didn’t provide one would have state funds stopped, but the supreme court did rule against that, get YOUR SHI$ together Mr. King!! The Judges are WRONG!!

          • carla AMERICAN

            SEE, they wanted to withhold state funds so why can’t Trump withhold federal funds ?

          • Rodney Steward

            What they are doing is UnConstitutional, but we have to wait and see what rout Trump takes and it won’t be a stupid one either!

          • Jimmy King

            The Orange moron will take the same route he took after his muslim ban failed. “We will see you in the Supreme Court” and then he did NOTHING

          • Rodney Steward

            It hasn’t been to the supreme court yet!!

          • Jimmy King

            Because he didn’t file to have it go there dumb ass

          • Rodney Steward

            It takes 4 to 6 months or even a year to get to the Supreme Court sweet lips!! OH, he filled!!

          • Rex Whitmer

            Sorry Jimmy, it’s the radical left that does not believe in the Constitution! There are a bunch of Liberal judges whom had ought to be being kicked off their benches. They ignore the Constitution and make up their own ideas, as if they were part of the Constitution! I somehow have an idea, you’ve never read or understood what it is and why it is!

          • Jimmy King

            Rex, what about the recent ruling was unconstitutional?? The President does not hold the poer of the purse and can not put limits on the federal funds once allocated by congress

          • Reb

            The liberal/democrats believe in the Constitution when they see it as a benefit for them but any other time they trash it, spit on it and sh-t on it when it doesn’t suit their Agenda.

          • scott
          • carla AMERICAN

            If they close down the government like they’re threatening to do they can be fired or their positions cancelled. Write Trump at the White House and DEMAND he eliminate all of congress if they shut down the government.

          • jimshaw54

      • Samuel Stephens

        If there were ever a war between liberals and conservatives, the conservatives would probably win in a physical confrontation, cause the conservatives have most of the guns.

        • Rex Whitmer

          Not true Samuel, the Liberals own about the same percentage of guns and the conservatives. They just don’t want anyone else to have any! That truly is their biggest fear!

      • jimshaw54

        We are already fighting a war — a non-declared by our side but declared on the side of Islamists. We are too into P.C. to figure it out even though they are openly tell us what they intend to do. It is no secret because it has been a policy for the entire time that Islam has existed.
        Their intent is to take over the world by breeding more babies than anyone else and by terrorism as necessary.

        • Mayor11

          What most people don’t realize is that America is slowly being taken over by the Muslims. look at Dearborn, MI. Sharia Law there now, openly. With our birth rate about 2 and the Muslim birth rate about 6 or 7 plus the mass immigration of Muslims we are slowly losing. In Minnesota the Muslims on welfare are demanding halai (sp) food. Obama put a lot of Muslims into high positions in Government. Of course he himself is a Muslim. I am too old to see the end but I fear for my great grand children, of which I have 11. GOD BLESS AMERICA. At least with Trump it might slow the process down a little. Mohammed what ever his name is, the master mind of 9-11, actually stated that is how they will take over America. Out populate us.

            In my opinion the group BLACK LIVES MATTER ARE TERRORIST/ THUGS.
            Most of the Blacks are like everyone else .Country, Family and friends are important to them as any other race.
            However the BLACK LIVES MATTER ARE A GROUP OF PAID TERRORIST/THUGS. They are also racist and will harm young,old or anyone in between. Soros and the Democratic spawned this evil trash and should be held accountable.

            Nothing good I suspect, the kids starting with grade school through Collage have been dubbed down for almost 50 years.
            They feel entitled to spout crap and get handouts, hell they for the most part refuse to serve in our military.
            They would rather anyone but themselves to serve with honor, in protection of this great country that they live in.
            We are so full of the WORLDS ILLEGALS that refuse to blend in, but to dishonor the Country they are slowly overtaking.
            Now that honor and pride of this Country is no more, they feel free to ignore our Laws of the land and laugh at our Constitution.
            The sad thing is the legal children that has for the most part Parents that had honor and pride in serving and protecting this once great Country.
            The illegals are not blending in but finding there Country men and women and living in what I call Hovels, AKA moving people that are legal citizens out of there neighborhoods and moving there country men and women into the neighborhoods.
            Like they let the Chinese call there neighborhoods China Town, Pretty much the Chinese in our Country run China town.
            We have Muslim neighborhoods same thing, we have African,other Asians,Cambodia and the list goes on.
            Hay why the hell are we allowing this kind of crap in our Country. If this is what they want, they need to go back to there own Country and live.
            We still call this Country the United States Of America and for now it is still ours.

      Gullible Blacks who admire Socialism don’t realize that Socialism is just another form of dictatorship, masquerading as “the people’s party.” Yes, you are correct – Socialist Stalin all over again. What happened in Russia will probably happen here in 50 years or so, when competent Whites become a minority. Look what is happening in South Africa.

      • carla AMERICAN

        Or what is still going on in their native country. Death, female brutal genitalia. Aids and Ebola infenstation, more slavery. Why are’nt blacks most importantly the black lives matters that are funded by Obama and Soros demand airplane privileges to Africa to save their people ? Bring doctors, military whoever they need to ensure peace,medical , education to Africa ? Obama got trillions from America and Soros got billions , so they can afford it. Get the liberals to go, they need to see and care for the people who really in dire need of care and not just watch the news of so called wars when the beautiful sides of their country that were built by our military hosts and promotes beautiful and expensive tourism. It’s a trap by the democrats who want illegal drugs, and to cripple America until we give up to communist countries and bow down to them. Don’t believe me ? What are democrats doing to the liberals ? And they’re falling for it !

        • Rex Whitmer

          I don’t think that they really want us to give up to communism Carla. They really want the same sort of government though, so that they can make the laws without anyone being able to protest! Sort of like Kim over in North Korea.

        Picked up a Romanian fare last night and we talked about what is going on here in America. She said that Americans who are voting for Bernie Sanders and Hillary are stupid as day. They have no clue what socialism would bring to this country. She said it would bring the same thing so many Romanians ran from. Socialism is a really bad thing. She says she tries to tell as many people as she can but they don’t listen. She also commented on to much government. I really think we need to do a trade….trade some of our radical libs for the Romanians .

          the dumbing down is complete. The socialism started April 9 1865. The biggest problem in Amerika is, the slave doesn’t know his condition. He cannot prove he is free, yet believes. THAT my comrades is FAITH ! Foolish, but great FAITH !

        Wrong. Socialism is here and creeping more and more into our society. It isn’t just blacks that are abetting the growth of socialism in this country, but many whites (and educated whites at that) who are liberals are doing a lot of damage to our country. Look at the number of people who voted for Hillary Clinton and that was a vote for creeping Socialism.
        What do you think Obamacare is all about? It is the early to mid stages of Socialism. What about the students rooting for Bernie Sanders because he promised “free” money for college. Again, socialism. The only way that Trump won was because of the Electoral College. I read that the E.C. kept New York and California from choosing our president.

      • Reb

        Blacks and many whites, mostly those on government assistance are controlled by the democratic/liberal politicians. These low i.q. blacks and whites have been brainwashed for generations now to cowtow to their democrat/liberal masters on any issue that their told to by their new slave holders the Democratic Party.

      • chaka

        Yeah in Russia they freed the serfs and gave them land!!! That ain’t what happened here!!! What happened here is the same thing that happened in South Africa Whites still have the land and control all the natural resources!! And don’t talk to me about Gullible!!! Y’all voted for a man who for the last 50 years has enriched himself at the expense of the little guy because you believed that he was going to actually look out for the little guy and you call Black folk gullible??? LOL

        • Rex Whitmer

          In Russia they freed the Serfs yes, then took their freedom back again under Stalin1 In South Africa it’s not the Whites only anymore. Those willing to educate and learn lead, black or white. We voted for a man who has used his wisdom and work to further enrich himself, and then donate millions to many have nots! Never be jealous of people whom earn their own way. Most often they also help other to earn their own way as well. Most Liberals take their money and hide it or use it to buy what they couldn’t buy without their riches. Having know a few self made rich persons, and was never jealous of them, because I knew that if being rich meant that much to me, I could have done it as well!

  • The same people are using things made by forced labor that were made by kids that never seen a class room, taste a candy bar or even know what ice cream is . They are lucky to get the daily bread or monthly cheese , if that. From their shoes they wear to the furniture they use and even the cell phones and TV, are made by slave labor. Even their food are made by some slaves.
    Surely they can not believe that Wal-Mart or some other company is making the things right there in the stores by well paid People . Some of the same people came from these places where there was and is forced labor .

      What does your post have to do with the monuments being taking down?

      • People being offended by what they say are about slavery- and yet they use things made by people who are making things in slavery now today, they need to throw all slavery things away Period Removing these monuments do not change history . They are forgetting the same monument they want to remove is the same man that built NO back from the civil war.He made street cars and tracks and other things after the war,,, And the war was NOT about slavery to start with DUH You are still living under the Brit crown today LOL and too dumb to see it

          You have no idea what I am living under. I asked you a simple question; and from that question you assume to know what I think.

    So, since a black man killed 3 white people in Fresno, CA and a 4th white person in a nearby town the day before – just last week (see headline in LA Times) – “Hate crime is suspected after a gunman kills 3 white men in downtown Fresno”, then should white people take to the streets in mass numbers and demand the removal of Martin Luther King statues (since he at times called for insurrection)? Should white people take to the streets and demand a white history month in fairness since there is a black history month? Should white people take to the streets and demand justice for all the black crimes committed against white people, and demand that these crimes be reported (instead of being covered up of whitewashed by the media)… even the LA Times failed to mention the gunmen in Fresno is black. It seems as if there is a black movement across America, which really became apparent during the Obama years in which blacks seemed to push an agenda, attack, and then play victim if they were called out… and then repeat the process again… meanwhile ignoring or downplaying issues of black on black crime (largest criminal problem in Chicago) and definitely ignoring black on white crime in proportion to media reports of white on black crime (which is far less than black on white crime).

    What about the story of a white teenage girl (Brittanee Drexel) of Myrtle Beach and the FBI newsstory – “FBI: Kidnapped teen gang-raped, fed to gators”
    Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2016/08/fbi-kidnapped-teen-gang-raped-fed-to-gators/#9s2OTems49d0I0Oz.99

    Drexel was a white, 17 year old girl, who was kidnapped from Myrtle Beach, held hostage and gang raped by black men in South Carolina and then they fed her body to alligators after they killed her. Did this story go nationwide? No! Why not? Well, it was likely because white people across the nation would have asked where is the justice? It may have been because Obama didn’t want this story to get out because it would have caused a “white” Ferguson effect against blacks. If the headlines of that story had been white men and the teenager was a black girl – that story would have gone viral and city streets would be in riots across the U.S. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Obama would have demanded justice immediately. But since Brittanee was a white girl, and since her attackers – kidnappers – torturers – and rapist were black, the case was minimized in an effort to tamper down any possible racial tensions by white people against black people.

    Any crime like this is horrific, regardless of the race of the victim and attacker(s) – and the facts are the facts, they should be reported as such – and without delay or hesitation in order to help prevent other crimes like this from happening, and in order to take bring about justice and protect others from falling as victims to these predators. Placing racial sensitivity ahead of justice is an outright injustice – and it causes a gap in the safety and security of our country.

    When you look across America, especially in our largest cities – the fear most Americans have (even black Americans) – it isn’t from terrorists or illegal aliens – they fear that they may fall victim or prey to gang activity – and the face of that activity is black – not white… Chicago, Detroit, New York, Atlanta, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Washington, D.C. St. Louis, New Orleans, etc.. all have the numbers to prove it.

    I once pulled over to help a black man whose pick-up truck had become stranded. He was about 50 years old and it was almost nighttime. As I pulled up next to him, three young black men (in their 20’s drove by yelling at him)… and he told me that was the second time they drove by. We left his truck in the store parking lot and I offered him a ride home. The young men that drove by looked like they were in a gang – according to the black man – Mr. John. He told me that he had been out there for about 30 minutes trying to get his pick-up truck to start, and in a pre-dominantly black part of town, I was the first person to stop and offer help. My size, and the nature of my vehicle at that time deters most people who consider engaging in criminal activity (regardless of color). I gave Mr. John a ride home to his wife and 3 kids, and he thanked me, and then he said – “I sure didn’t think I was going to make it this evening with those guys driving by, and I certainly didn’t expect a white man to help me”. I told Mr. John… “sir, it wasn’t a white man who helped you this evening, it was God allowing one good American to help another good American”. He smiled and said… son, someday, “that is the world I want me kids to live in”. Years later when my wife gave birth to our child, and had problems with the pregnancy requiring an emergency procedure… the doctor who saved them was a black man… but I would like to think it was a situation like me and Mr. John… one good American helping another good American!

    So, removing statues that are a part of our American history do little to solve the real problems we have in this country. Until black people in America are ready to hold black people accountable for their own crimes and their own actions, and until black people stop being a hyphenated (“African”) American and finally just become American, then the divide in our country between black and white will remain far and wide, and no removal of any statue will ever solve that problem. We have to come together, acknowledge the past that none of us today (in this last 50 years or more) had anything to do with, and realize that without the past – none of us would be here today in the strongest nation on earth – fighting and defending against enemies not as blacks or whites or Asians or Hispanics – but as good Americans! Perhaps someday – soon, Mr. John’s kids and our child might live in the world where there are only Good Americans vs. Bad Americans… color or culture becoming irrelevant. When we look up to a statue – may be we should like to the one’s that have a man erected on a cross to bring us together and lead us to where our nation should be.

  • drdavis

    Wow, destroy history, why is it history in the middle East is found and some restored and here we have nuts wanting to destroy history of how we came together. Why do we allow this? Where are we as Americans to let left wind radical demos do this? Shouldn’t we destroy all monuments that represent US History it appeaes to me you shouldn’t do one and not the others. Equality you know, fairness you know and more stupid left wing garbage… we crazy for allowing this to take place.

    • 1madgrannie

      We have already lit it in rainbow colors. Nothing would surprise me these days. Pure idiocy thinks you can change history. However, having lived in both the south and mid-west during the 50’s, I can say that blacks were treated far better in the south. It was a way of life in the south and both blacks and whites got along even though there were separate drinking fountains, etc. It was rare to see a black child in our schools in Ohio when I was there. Small city, true enough, but lots of industry back then. I had one black girl in kindergarten with me and so no other black child until high school. No one wants to remember that at one time the south was ultra conservative democrat and were extremely in favor of segregation but it was the Republicans that championed the black cause. So why is it now that blacks flock to the DNC? Go figure. Lincoln was a Republican. This is a result of Obama and the black rebel rousers stirring the pot and causing as much dissent as they possibly can.

      • Rodney Steward

        TRUE, Obama started this BS and he hates everything White and American!!

      • barnjoer

        I am with you on that. Where I grew up here in central Texas segregation was still going on when I started school. Some of my best friends growing up were blacks and Mexicans. And they still are to this day. You hate to stereotype people but some of these bring it on their selves the way they dress and act and talk. Respect is how you earn it there are also lots of sorry ass white people in this world.

    You people are the sick ones, first you remove the flag now the monuments.
    Real live hero’s died for that flag and the land you are destroying.
    You do not deserve congratulations for being traitors to your past your history. once you remove your flag and Monuments you won’t count for anything.
    The dead will remember what they fought and died for you, they will walk the streets you are doomed.
    But by this action you do deserve disdain and condemnation, I for one will never go back to New Orleans it has no honor.
    You just finished destroying your town in the name of the Cowards that you did this disputable act for. ILLEGALS.
    Slavery was brought about by other Africans that hated and sold there neighbors not the Whites, where is the hate for them?
    No one should go to New Orleans let them sink into the mud where they belong.

  • jdbixii

    The Civil War was a lesson for the history books. While it was, arguably, fought to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation on the Confederate States Of America, it is a fact that it did not solve the problem of racism and prejudice which continue to exist and, probably, always will. Germany has kept many of the Concentration (Death) Camps (as museums) which were used during the holocaust, not only as proof of what existed and happened, as facts of history, but to remind people of what General Eisenhower warned might happen, that “some bastard would deny the historical facts of them.”(paraphrased). History was what it was. To deny it or to attempt to mollify the effects of it for purposes of effectuating attitudes of people by their cognizance or perception of the truth is naïve and a disservice to the sacrifice of those whose convictions led them to give their lives for a cause. As a Northerner whose paternal, great-great grandfathers, both, fought in the Civil War, it is the fact that they did, not the fact that they won or lost, which is important. Neither has affected the problem of prejudice and discrimination based on race. History is the record of that which occurred. Having served during the period of the Viet Nam war, a war which did not achieve an honorable conclusion– a win–the fact of history is that it took place, that it was a fiasco, and that the aftermath of it continues to affect the lives of many thousands of veterans of it. We would not remove the Wall Memorial in an attempt to erase the effects of perceptions of it. For whatever reason, even and especially, to honor the memory of those who sacrificed for their cause, the memorials of Confederate soldiers are a part of American history. They, per se, do not perpetuate prejudice or discrimination. They stand as reminders of the facts of history. Who, what, when, where, why and how! While skin color is not a reason to like or dislike anyone, beliefs are. Beliefs will not be changed by the removal of the stone figures which stand as reminders of the cost of war.

    Taking down monuments will not change history and that is what they represented. Guess they will replace them with a couple of men kissing each other that seems to be the trend of today. Our country is headed to hell in a hand basket. May God have mercy on us.

  • Barthel

    The email address of Mayor Landrieu is mayor@nola.gov. Write to him and tell him that this removal of monuments is wrong and underhanded.

    • mica

      That bill is a great idea. I hope the rest of the states do likewise.

    • Denise Demien Miller

      Barthel, thank you for that. I copied and pasted your wording (hope you don’t mind) and sent it by my email. I am a “Northerner” by birth but my heart has always been a “Southerner”. This craziness nowadays with offending liberals has got to stop. I believe that since they did it under darkness, they knew what they were doing was wrong.

      • Morton99

        Fortunately the racists are a very small minority of Republicans. By all means celebrate the darker moments of our history but do it with humility in a museum, not in a public square.

        • jaybird

          People walk down the streets everyday and see history with their children and have a chance to explain who and what happened in the birth of our country. They will visit the birthplace of our Presidents and if they visit our Nations Capital, that is also a teaching moment. That will not happen in a museum where children are bored. Otherwise, 50+ yrs from now they will think that none of it happened. No one that I know of celebrates the darker moments of that period, they will celebrate the birth of a great Nation free and better than the rest.

          • Morton99

            I agree. Put them in a museum and not where we actually glorify our history.- with ceremonies.

          • jaybird

            I did not say put them in a museum, what are you agreeing to?

          • Morton99

            We must display our history especially what we did wrong. And contrary to your admonition that kids do not like museums – you are wrong. In my experience.museums have made enormous strides to be interesting and entice kids. I often visit the Museum of Natural History, and the Met in NYC and it is full of kids looking at the incredible exhibits.

    History is history and there is nothing anyone is going to do to change that. It still exists in the minds of man. The sad part is that future generations will never have the opportunity of knowing what generations of their forefathers went through to achieve the world we live in today. Pappy450 is rite. The real champions in the world today are those who continue to “work” to make this a better world. On the other hand, these little wimps, snowflakes, cowards, perfidious human beings are at the root of all evil happening in America today. God only knows that at my age I will have been able to see the best of what true patriots and Americans have achieved. My prayer is now that what is left of this generation will be able to salvage a little bit for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The traitorous and treasonous actions of these far left liberals and antifa’s will reap their reward when it comes time to stand in the presence of the Almighty. May God have mercy on their souls.

    You know its amazing how history got twisted and you dumb cork suckers buy into it? Its the United Stated of America that stopped slavery, and not Jefferson Davis south. History has is that England & the union did abolished slavery and that started the war at Fort Sumpter you dumb fucks. The lies continue and you poor dumb blacks and lazy whites still buy into it. How about learning how to read
    and understand why the left wants to remove obeliks and such about our countrys history and how we got here. They were put it place so we wouldnt forget the past. Duhhhhhhhhhhh! I dont feel sorry for you youre doing it again?
    Again learn to read. Build something new and great instead of tearing down and hiding how we got here! Dont you have other problems maybe even personal ones youre ignoring that should be addressed. For the last 3 generations theres people of color that confuse there problems with government. How about this hard working tax payers ask for reparations from you story telling dead beats.

    What happens to these monuments once their removed? Where do they go? The people today have NO regard for those brave men and women who fought and died for what they believed in, it was their homeland that they were fighting for not slavery. I’m from New York and am ashamed of EVERY asshole who wants to destroy the South’s history. Our country has gone down the toilet with the people living here today, they have no regard for anything. This mayor should be removed from office TODAY. i HAVE A CONFEDERATE BATTLE FLAG AND PROUDLY FLY IT RIGHT UNDER OUR AMERICAN FLAG.

    This is really disheartening to me. I find the history of the civil war very fascinating. What people fail to remember is the “slaves” were already slaves in Africa sold to Americans by Africans. I’m not saying slavery is ok but honestly by this happpening it gave the “slaves” a possible chance for a better future. I’ve travelled to Africa and I can tell you it’s hotter than you can imagine. Almost all of the “slaves” had a way better life in America than in Africa.

  • BigRedOneVet

    This erasure of the past is typical of communists. My first return trip to Vietnam was in 1996. I remembered the many South Vietnamese military cemeteries around major cities. When I returned in 1996, they were all gone. Bulldozed by the North as were nearly all vestiges of American presence. The statue of an unknown South Vietnamese Soldier in front of the old Assembly House in Saigon had been replaced by a statue of “Uncle” Ho Chi Minh holding a small child. Ironic considering how many children were killed in his name. I have no dog in this fight as my family did not arrive in America until the 1880s. But I do have a sense and appreciation of history and the War Between the States is our history, all of us. I could have retired nearly anywhere but I chose rural Tennessee because of it’s culture and lifestyle. By the grace of God I was born American but I’m Southern by choice. This rewriting of our collective history is a major step solidifying the tyrannical socialism that is looming before us.

    They already changed the history book to make you think the civil war was fought to free the slaves. I was taught that until and believed it until i found out the truth. Now the want to hide the history by taking down statutes. This country will fall by its own hands. Thank the the liberals. Truth is the blacks that were brought here are better off the the ones that didn’t get to come. They just don’t know they are the lucky ones. But they should be thanking the slave owner for bringing them here if they had any sense.

    • AmericanBelle1

      Pray tell what’s the real reason the civil war was fought.

      • Rodney Steward

        The High Taxes placed on Cotton!

        • AmericanBelle1

          Taxation without representation was a major cause for the Revolutionary War! During the Civil War period, a major cause was the division in the economic and social differences between north and south. With the invention of the cotton gin, southern plantation owners realized the profitable market with cotton, thus it became a one crop economy dependent on slavery. But the north was based more on industry other than agriculture. It bought the raw cotton and turned it into marketable products. So there was an economic division dividing north and south. And just like with today’s political parties, the north was for state’s rights, as the south stood for federalism, making the union bigger than necessary, as Democrats do today! And with that, both sides looked at slavery differently, with the north being against slavery where the south wanted it…needed it for cheap labor. The difference brought a great division between the ideologies of north and south…north against slavery, the south for slavery, ergo the abolition movement came into being. By the time of Lincoln was inaugurated, 7 southern states had already seceded, due to South Carolina’s Declaration of the Causes for Secession. Thus, the war between the states was due to economic and social differences between the north and south. The economic difference had nothing to do with taxation, but the South’s dependency on cheap slave labor to produce the South’s one-crop agricultural monopoly. The north wanted to abolish slavery, the south did not.

          • Rodney Steward

            Slavery was never an issue till the end of the war, Lincoln didn’t like the slaves either, it was thrown in to prolong the war so Sherman could continue burning the South! The MAIN CAUSE, the shipping ports that were booming in the South that Lincoln did not want to lose!! Like I said earlier, the

      • Edward

        The real reason it was fought was over the tariff the south had to pay for all goods going across the mason dickson line to the north. In other words the north taxed the south to sell their stuff in the north and the north could bring their stuff south tax free

    We learn by our mistakes, not by erasing them! Hairbrained and unintelligent describe the people who would not only be judgmental, but use today’s moral and ethical standards to make those erroneous judgments! There is rarely ever any value to judgmental statements. They are inherently biased and subjective. In the case of history, as a discipline, we do not focus on whether slavery was evil, which we could never show to be true or false, but focus on what the impact of slavery was.

    The case at hand points out the senseless idiocy of erasing the value and impact slavery actually had or didn’t. Historical figures are the products of the time and society they lived in, and morality is the commonly agreed upon definition of right and wrong at the time. It is useless to judge individuals of the past by today’s standards, however looking at how people used to justify actions that are now considered to be immoral can be useful. But how can that be established when the history is erased in the dark of the night as was done in New Orleans.

    New Orleans is in for a very nasty awakening – being led and created by a bunch of radical Liberals. If you look at the U.S. as a whole after being led by a completely power hungry inept black man, you see DIVISION of our Nation like never before.
    The people responsible for removing part of New Orlean’s history (be it good or bad) are doing so WITHOUT THE PERMISSION OF N.O.’S RESIDENTS. Did anyone there vote on the removal of those monuments? No! Was this discussed publicly before action taken? NO! These actions are done by a group of Liberal/Progressive Democrats who, once again, never think out their actions but just do it!

    Well to that Group of L.P. New Orleans Gang members (because they are acting like Gangs) — YOU HAVE STEPPED OVER THE LINE OF SANITY INTO A COMLETELY SELF ABSORBED WORLD OF LUNACY! There will be payback for your actions and you deserve every drop of pain you get. Perhaps it will awaken you out of your egotistical tirade of denial that others have the right to decide abt their towns, not just you! Absolutely pathetic and wrong for the Loony Left to be doing…OR IS GEORGE SOROS BEHIND THIS RAPE OF NEW ORLEANS? TMI…check him out! He is just a snake in human clothing trying to destroy our Country, state by state. I wouldn’t be surprised if he has a.huge hand in this especially since the funding is unknown. That is how he works – behind the scenes, plying with $$ to create chaos and upheavel. Too bad the “Gang members” don’t realize Soros eats people like them for breakfast! Hope he chokes!!

    • GuardianFlame

      George Soros is being investigated by JUDICIAL WATCH, a Private Constitutional Law Firm that investigates people known to be working against the U.S.
      It also has cases open against Hillary Clinton and Barack regarding actions against the Confidentiality Act that governs their positions. They are still uncovering more info about Benghazi that could be condemning for them both.

      However, as they investigate H.C. and BHO, I guarantee they will find a tie to George Soros. He needs to be imprisoned in our Country or deported and not allowed to ever return. He currently has a place in New York City – no wonder that place has turned into a cuckoo haven!

  • Billie June Hall

    Major, you are a stupid ……… These monuments are part of our history. No one should be offended by history. That is what the libetards, etc. are trying do. They use the excuse that it is “offencive” Well, let me tell you…..I AM OFFENDED BY THEM.

    The monuments are to remind us of the things that are in our past, so that hopefully they aren’t repeated. Stand up and say NO to these evil ones that don’t want us to remember and live better NOW.

  • Deb

    So sad to see great thing taken away from our view because some one person thinks things should not be displayed from AMERICAN history!

  • Bob

    So what’s next …Disneyland ? If these lib Demos at any time think the rat is being singled out at the park , bye -bye theme park . LOL

  • George2

    The war was NOT about slavery.It was actually A war about sovereignty of the states. These were HEROES of the South, and their statues should remain intact!

    JUST ANOTHER WAY TO FORGET THE PAST, WHEN YOU DO, IT IS VERY EASY TO GO BACK AS MY PARTY HAS DONE, RE-ENSLAVE THE BLACK AND POOR PEOPLE IN OUR COUNTRY BY HANDING FREE STUFF TO THEM.

    MY PARTY START THE KKK AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY FREED THE SLAVES.

    YOU ALL AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME ESPECIALLY THE 5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY, WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

  • Laurence Almand

    More reverse racism. I suppose it is only a matter of time until Stone Mountain in Georgia is dynamited to eliminate the monument to Robert E. Lee. This sort of vandalism is to be expected when Blacks become a majority in any city. In the future they will demand that any monument to any White male of achievement must be destroyed. Leftists are already saying that the US Constitution is a monument to “White supremacy.”

  • Barbara van der Velden

    History is hostory. Many of us know it well and chose to forgive and move forward. Do right, show respect and do better. It is counter productive to willow in self pity, so stop. Stand up and live the best you can.

    Civil War??sometimes history should repeat itself

  • Concerned Citizen

    So many people today try to use things like this to promote racial conflict in America without searching for the complete truth about the [alleged ‘Civil War’]. Not everything was based on slavery [and many of the slave ship owners and slave traders were from the northeast].

  • bobangelo

    This is a complete outrage. Those monuments honor AMERICANS that fought for a cause they believed in. Lets take down the Vietnam wall next and the WW2 Memorial in Washington. Why do these LIBTARD progressives moron 2 brain -celled A wipes get what they want all the time. Who are we offending? If you don’t like this country OR it’s history, GET the F out.
    A very sad day……………………………………………

  • john

    How about just removing the drug dealing negro population…………

  • Richard

    Since confederate monuments are being removed to protect those who are offended about our history and some feel it’s racist, why don’t we start removing ALL mosques since they offend Christians and represent terror after 9/11? Let’s be equal! Piss on the koran!

  • Samuel Stephens

    Political correctness BS running amuk. City administrators no better than ISIS destroying history in Allepo, Syria. History is history don’t try to alter it with lies, it is what it is. Suck it up buttercup.

  • david goodman

    enough with all this racism.no black or white issue.people were put in slavery years ago.quit being racist.i was there when Mr. King was in ala.he’s turning in his grave now.history is how you learn about mistakes.all you babies are still under slavery.demon-crats are still your masters.they invented KKK.take that and crawl in your safe space.oh yea change them diapers.

  • Vince

    That is a shame people are sooooooo dam stupid. I want to say so many things here, this is criminal to destroy the past just to make some snowflake bleeding thin skin a$$ wipes is a crying shame. And I do not even think it is black people, it is most likely whites trying to make themselves feel better.

  • Jaron Gant Joyner

    Why?You can remove all the Momuments you want-Very Silly-The War-Didn’t even start over Blacks are Due to Slavery-Study your History-You Can’t Remove are Change History-It’s done-And over.For Heavens sake-Spend your Money on Hungry-Children.If you’re just Bored-Do good things-Not this Negitive stuff.Ck.Out what the “Flag”-Stands for-Its Beautiful-And Blacks are White would love it–Unless you’re just SICK!!!!!

  • Ramses V

    Do they realize why Gen Robert E Lee fought for the Confederacy? He did not fight for slavery. When Gen Lee resigned his commission in the united States military to fight for the Confederate States of America he did so with a heavy heart. He chose to fight for his Virginia. His family. His most close friends, family and countrymen. These were different times. When Gen Lee surrendered to Gen Grant he did so with honor and dignity. Do not banish this great man for fighting for those closest to him. After the war Gen Lee lost everything. His estate is now Arlington national cemetery. Allow the future to know of there past and learn from it instead of hiding and trying to erase it.

  • Len

    OMG… what now? This is so ridiculous and funny. Any sane person alive today (including monuments) are not responsible for what happened centuries ago. Those monuments are for historical value only and if you cant see that then maybe you are the racist and pro slavery.

  • John Mattinsonjr

    When watching tv and seeing ISIS destroying statues and doing away with the countries history, I was very upset because you can’t replace history. Now our country is doing the same thing. Totally nauseating. We were always better then that. Maybe we should get rid of the statues and monuments that everybody else doesn’t like. For instance the Lincoln Monument or the Jefferson monument or the Vietnam memorial and on & on. We are now a country that is devolving from the face of the earth. Awful, awful, awful….. Grow up people, History is history. Should be shared with the ages!!!!!

  • R. T.

    THIS HAS GONE TO FAR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Now the politicians are DESTROYING historic memorials because someone is OFFENDED !!!!!!!!!!!

      The Politicians mainly the Demo-rats are eradicating our History, if people don’t think so look at what they are teaching in Grade School through Collage.
      No history except for slavery, go figuer.

  • rapunzel972

    You can’t erase the past by removing a few statues. Even if they fought for the South, they were still good men & fought for what they believed in. People can be so stupid to be offended by a statue.

  • RICHARD

    once this is done the blacks will just find something new to holler about.

  • John Williams

    Interesting that it was DEMOCRATS who were pushing for the enslavement of blacks, it was DEMOCRATS who were the majority of the KKK, it is DEMOCRATS AND LIBERALS who are today pushing to “eliminate” from history the record of their involvement so they can continue to lie to the blacks and work to keep them down on the “plantation” (read ghetto and public housing.) It is difficult to continue to lie to people with proof for all the world to see out there, makes you wonder what they will want to hide next, probably that nasty old constitution. If people look honestly at the facts it is obvious that the liberal left, socialist progressives and democrats,who are the biggest racists and sniveling bunch of hypocrites.

  • zizi Newton

    Why destroy part of the history? If people everywhere in the world deny their past we will be living in a blank.

  • Alleged Comment

    THEN they must remove all MLK monuments too. Since it no longer matters……

  • Detriotcity

    Just a bunch of stupid liberals re-writing history. Shame on the lot of you for letting this happen.

  • socialsavvy

    I do not feel that I am bigoted, nor am I white supremest, nor am I in any way against my black fellow person. My life has been serving many people of races, white and black. To me each is a person. A human who deserves the right to be treated as a human. I do not like the feelings my black fellow persons have regarding the statues on Jackson Sq. I compare these men, who were leaders in their time, to those in Europe who were kings and monarchs that were not even as good as those you visit on Jackson Sq. Yet, because of the artistic value, the stories told through their history, the statues of these kings etc. remain to remind people of their history. It is a proud thing to be able to look your ancestors adversary in the face and say, “we not only survived, we have risen far above slavery, look at us. We are free. We vote. We have property. We have our own names. We had a black president. Look at us. We have over come more in our short time as citizens in this nation than you would have ever dreamed. So you, you are only a statue to remind the black persons that they have risen above slavery and subjugation of the powerful slave owners and politicians of history. These statues are part of history. Part of La. history, New Orleans, and American history. Let history speak and declare how slavery was evil, and overcome. How the 20th century has given all of us freedoms we never thought of having. Use your statues to teach history…….we do not want to repeat it …ever. Nor do those in Europe where many good and evil men have their statues as reminders of their history. That which is history is not today unless we make it that way today.

  • Ron

    It’s a shame the South bending to political correctness. Where have all the leaders gone?

  • IT WAS NEVER THE REBEL FLAG THE COMMUNISTS WANTED TO TAKE DOWN. IT WAS THE EASIEST, PLAYING RACE CARDS. THE REAL GOAL IS THE AMERICAN FLAG THEN THE CROSS. OBAMA SAYS HE HATES THE FLAG AND ANTHEM. WE FOOLS ELECTED A COMMUNIST.

  • Obie Miller

    It would be well for those who are removing those monuments to remember that the confederacy was about about the rights of the individual states,as well. The “war between the states” was really a war about states rights, and the overreaching federal government. Just consider that what works well in New York might not be a good solution, at all, for those living in Texas or Tennessee!

  • sailhardy

    The Black Lies Matter people have been empowered to write history as they wish it. That is why they ignore the contributions of whites to Dr. King’s movement. He probably would not have been greeted with so much enthusiasm from white folks if they knew the Southern Christian Leadership Movement was seeking inequality before the law for some, but not for others. His call to the world was for equality, not for racial preferences of any kind.

  • chaka

    As far as I’m concerned who grew up in the South (a Black Man) who watched Bloody Sunday on TV with his Father who was an 82nd Airborne​ Ranger with 18 combat jumps, 1 into Iran to help overthrow the Democratically elected President of Iran in 1953-54 and another behind the Iron Curtain who couldn’t vote in his hometown without getting lynched in his uniform​ I want to know what other part of Southern heritage does the flag if a bunch of traitors who tried to destroy the Union and killed a quarter million other Americans in the attempt to keep my People enslaved stand for???

  • Barthel

    The email address of the mayor of New Orleans I mayor@nola.gov. Send him an email telling him he is wrong to allow this.
    Mayor Landrieu,

    It is an affront to history to allow the removal of Confederate monuments. The fact that you are doing it secretively under cover of darkness shows that you know this is wrong. Ever since Dylann Roof went on his murderous rampage, an anti Confederate movement has begun. Roof was an evil miscreant who should die by public hanging, but it is unfair to use Roof’s actions as a reason to destroy southern heritage. The monuments and flags are a tribute to those who fought, suffered and died for what they thought was right. If blacks find these memorabilia offensive, that’s just too bad. More and more our nation as a whole has been yielding to the demands of blacks. They now have equal rights, so they should be content. If they want to do some good for their people, they should find ways to stop black crime, most of which is black on black. The more we cave in to the demands of the minorities the more they will continue to demand. This must stop.

    We have a bill in the Alabama Legislature which will protect our monuments. This bill is expected to pass.

  • Tim

    they didn’t “try” to remove the federally imposed, socialist, mostly black abusive police force, they DID take their city back. President Grant didn’t dare send troops to intervene. The democrats of Sept. 14 1874 shot at cops that had stolen an artillery piece from these “citizens”. Theft was wrong then too ? These demonrats of today are in favor of shooting cops. What am I missing ? IF you don’t honor those that died sacrificing for you, you will end up, just like them. DEATH to TYRANTS !

  • Pirate 101

    I grew up in the 1940’s and 50’s. The blacks I knew were like cousins. We shared what we had. We were family.

    Then, about 1963, some people from up north came south to correct our way of life. They told our people that they were victims of something.

    There were riots. I guess they thought things would be corrected by adding hard feelings to the mix.

    I miss my friends. I miss how it was.

    I saw graffiti in Vietnam. They said Yankee go home. We need a few of those signs now a days over here …
