Disgraceful: Likely last hurdle cleared, New Orleans expected to move quickly to remove Confederate monuments

Via Billy

 

A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously cleared the way Monday evening for the monuments to be removed, issuing an opinion that criticized groups seeking to keep the statues in place for arguments that “wholly lack legal viability or support.”

With what is likely the last legal hurdle the city faces removed, the statues are expected to come down quickly. Tyronne Walker, a spokesman for Mayor Mitch Landrieu, said the city will start seeking bids Tuesday to remove the statues, and a contract will be awarded 25 days later.

  1. I can almost understand if Yankees, Californians, LGBTQers, and all the other pearl-clutchers want every mention of The South scrubbed from the history books, but when OUR OWN DAMN PEOPLE do it ?

    1. big mistake to lump all (yankees) into one group. That's what the left does, think about it.

    2. "By Yankee I do not mean everybody from north of the Potomac and Ohio...... I am using the term historically to designate that peculiar ethnic group descended from New Englanders, who can be easily recognized by their arrogance, hypocrisy, greed, lack of congeniality, and penchant for ordering other people around."

  4. A contractor that respects history should low bid the contract in order to insure that the statues are not destroyed. Perhaps a safe home could be found. How sad.

  5. How about the rise of the "Cesar Chavez" Avenue or Boulevard?

    Just as hypocritical and tone deaf.

    1. The cleansing of the history of the Southern States is underway. There will be no rest from the left until all remembrance of the facts that led to the Civil War are erased from the memory of everyone.

    2. Hopefully the pendulum will start back.

  6. They're cowards. Deep down, they approve of the Confederate
    flag and other Southern historical remembrances. The flag
    never was about slavery, but 'screwing the South' tariffs.
