A 12-ton statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee that sits on the historic Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia, is set to be taken down Wednesday, state officials said Monday.
"A 12-ton statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee that sits on the historic Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia, is set to be taken down Wednesday, state officials said Monday. A group of Richmond residents sued, arguing that an 1890 deed joint resolution prohibits the governor from directing the removal of a state monument from state property. Last week, the Virginia Supreme Court rejected arguments, clearing the way for the statue's removal. "The statue was installed in 1890, a generation after the Civil War, during the historical movement that sought to undo the results of the war by other means," state officials said in a news release Monday."
These folks basically have a live stream going right now of the statue being removed; like it's something to celebrate.....I mean, have the Democrats have no sense of loyalty?? Why isn't BLM and ANTIFA there protesting this?? This is one of their liberal heroes being taken down -- this would be like taking down a statue of MLK or Rosa Parks....But the only ones fighting for our Confederate heroes are conservatives....
With all the many great things that Robert E. Lee has done for the Democrat party and their liberal cause; the fact they are not outraged and angry about these Confederate statues being removed is baffling. Why did it take conservative groups to take this to court?? Why weren't there any liberal legal groups fighting for one of their Democrat heroes?? Why didn't the NAACP file a lawsuit to stop this monument from being removed?? It seems like every time this subject comes up; the people most angry about it are Conservatives and Republicans -- even tho they are the ones who defeated the racist Democrats and Confederates...however, they still have enough respect to honor those Confederate heroes...We as a country should always have the tradition of honoring the warriors and heroes of the armies we FOUGHT against in battle -- as long as they fit a certain demographic of course.
