From Dylann Roof to Harvey Weinstein
Many of us predicted it. The war on American monuments and memorials wouldn’t stop with just stop with Confederate ones. It wasn’t hard to figure out, but the answer was always, ‘yeah, but they’re not going after Northern “civil war” monuments.
And of course we said, “what about the 54th MA Infantry monument” which was vandalized in Boston with the usual red paint, and an extra touch of the breakage of the white officer’s sword on the bronze relief monument.
And their response was always “yeah, but that was blacks”. And we thought “that makes no sense, are you a racist?”
But NOW, we’re getting onto the track that led to a slippery slope in Florida resulting in the removal of 4 of the state’s most historic and most prominent Southern veterans memorials, two of which were in HISTORIC DISTRICTS.
“What is happening, now?” you may ask? The State of New Jersey is considering removing one of its two honorees in Statuary Hall in the Capitol in Washington, D.C. Which one? Another old white guy – Gen. Philip Kearney, Jr., a Federal general who died at the 2nd Battle of Manassas.
