False Notes From Wynton Marsalis Lead To A Divided City

Via Billy

The City Council of New Orleans, at the behest of Mayor Mitch Landrieu (who in turn was acting as the urging of jazz great Wynton Marsalis) has rewritten history, vilified the 70 million-plus Americans who are descended from the Confederate Army, and ruptured the Big Easy in ways that may take years to repair.

At a time when national polls show national racial tensions at a level unseen for decades, Mayor Landrieu and the Council have ignited an unnecessary and terribly divisive civic battle over some venerable Confederate statuary, especially the monument to Robert E. Lee in Lee Circle. The sudden opprobrium heaped upon Lee and the Confederacy by Landrieu, Marsalis and the full-throated chorus of the New Orleans Times-Picayune newspaper has not been seen since the War itself, now 150 years into our past.


  1. The old adage,'Let Sleeping Dogs Lie', comes to mind.

    Keep kicking that dog, and you'll see what happens when he wakes up.

    Which is exactly what the PTB want to happen, except the stupid fools who kept kicking the dog will be the ones who pay for it the most.

    Stupid, stupid, fools.
