The monument of President Jefferson Davis in New Orleans has been removed. Masked construction crews worked to dismantle the monument in the dead of night, guarded by masked gunmen. Just as the Jacobins and the Bolsheviks celebrated their victorious revolutions against France and Russia by desecrating the Cathedral of Notre Dame and dynamiting the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, so the Left is celebrating its victorious revolution against America by destroying historical monuments – starting small with the vulnerable Confederates as an entering wedge, but marching onward from there and never calling retreat. Indeed, the Left fully intends to do figuratively to American history what the Jacobins and Bolsheviks did literally to the Bourbons and the Romanovs.
Jefferson Davis, a hero from the Mexican War, Mississippi planter, and American statesman before he was elected President of the Confederate States of America, died in New Orleans on December 6th, 1889. His funeral procession was the largest ever in New Orleans and one of the largest ever in the South. Among the tens of thousands who lined the streets and paid their respects were many of his former slaves, who remembered their former master and life on his plantation fondly. On February 22nd, 1911, New Orleans dedicated a monument to Jefferson Davis, corresponding with the 50th anniversary of his presidential inauguration. “The South seeking a leader for her highest office, chose him from among her fittest men, a profound student of the Constitution; a majestic creator; in character firm; in judgment sound; in purpose resolute,” read the pedestal of the monument. “His deeds are enshrined in the hearts of the people for whom he suffered, and his deeds are forever wedded to immortality.” On May 11th, 2017, New Orleans removed the heavily vandalized monument, and it is rumored that it will be relocated to a nearby slavery museum to stand forevermore as an object of scorn and ridicule.
