The city council in Knoxville, Iowa, will be full of new members in January after a dispute over a veteran’s memorial bearing a cross led voters to boot out the incumbents.

It all started when Americans United for Separation of Church and State demanded that the city council take down a veteran’s monument in Young’s Park within the city.  The monument featured a soldier bowing before a white cross, but the Americans United found this an offensive violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment and threatened to sue.

The council voted to remove the memorial Nov. 2. Voters poured in the very next day to vote them out Nov. 3 in regular elections.

  2. Wonderful! This town does not seem to be part of the parasitic brain disease
    affecting most of the country. Kudos. The townspeople also placed two thousand
    crosses around town. Now if some energetic people in a Southern town would
    place two thousand Confederate flags in their town. PC is incorrect.

  3. Deadly tornadoes struck Knoxville, Iowa today. Coincidence? Doubtful. I believe
    in the power of the gov weapon of mass destruction, HAARP or whatever they call it
    now days.
