I see that the cowards in the New Orleans city government have caved to demands to move the statue of Confederate general, scholar and gentleman, Robert E. Lee, along with several others, apparently because these historical figures “offend” some sensitive folks.
This expensive operation was done under the cover of darkness with protection from police snipers. Since New Orleans is majority black, maybe this gesture of appeasement would be the perfect time for the mayor and city council to give thanks for the many great contributions of these “offended” people to the culture of this once grand old city.
Vibrant black neighborhoods are a testament to their exceptional commitment to peaceful and beautiful communities, which help fuel real estate values throughout the city. Their academic excellence enriches the public schools and serves as an example to anyone who wishes to achieve prominence.
Maybe a good way for the offended to look at monuments that commemorate Confederate soldiers is as historical reminders to never repeat the tragic errors that led to Americans killing other Americans.
Never miss a local story.
