Bill to stop Confederate monument removals, put power in 'people's hands' passes committee

Via Billy


A Louisiana House committee Wednesday advanced legislation that would forbid the removal of Confederate monuments.

After a racially charged debate that left several members angry, the House Committee on Municipal, Parochial and Cultural Affairs voted 10-8 to advance the Louisiana Military Memorial Conservation Act to the full House for consideration.

Baton Rouge Rep. Patricia Smith said after the vote that she had hoped the legislation would be defeated in committee and thus avoid a similar divisive debate in the House chamber. She expects the Republican-majority in the House to approve the measure. “Maybe the Senate can stop it,” Smith said.


  1. These guys better hurry...the wretched mayor of New Orleans and his culture cleaners are already 1 out of 4.

    1. They said it probably wouldn't be law before they removed them.

  2. The pro-communist mayor is going to wait until after the
    Jazz festival - but, there is a lull during the festival:
    There really is a plot to over-throw this country and
    the ones who are designated to protect it are part of it.

    1. Thanks.
