According to a report from News4Jax, a state representative has indicated that she will push for the relocation of a monument commemorating Confederate soldiers that is currently at the Florida State Capitol.
This monument was dedicated in 1882. In 1923, it was then moved to what is now the Old State Capitol.
The words inscribed into the stone monument are in memory of men who fought for Florida during the Civil War.
David McCallister, a representative of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, said “Floridians served all across the theaters of war.”
McCallister has connections to soldiers who fought on both sides of the Civil War.
He added, “These monuments represent the men who served their state and defended their families.”
However, the social justice advocate Lakey Love views the monument differently.
She says that the monument represents “Inequity and violence against black and brown people in this country.”
Democratic State Representative Geraldine Thompson said that she has plans to work with the Governor’s office and possibly introduce legislation to move the statue. She indicated that she would move the statue inside of the Old Capitol, which has been turned into a museum, or to a Confederate cemetery.
Naturally, McCallister criticized the desire to relocate the monument.
“It’s hateful. It’s representative of a far radical left wing agenda,” McCallister claimed.
McCallister may have a point.
Although not as radical of a proposal as monument removal efforts in South Carolina, Virginia, and Oregon, such efforts to move statues because of cultural sensitivity are a part of the political correctness wars.
This proposal would just be the first step. It would then likely be followed up by a full-blown effort to remove the Florida monument.
The Left is playing the long game in these battles and will continue to press on until they achieve their ultimate goal—the destruction of traditional American culture.
These are fights that cannot be ignored.
Hispanic Oregon Candidate Fesses Up to Committing a Race Hoax
A race hustler recently admitted to writing a racist letter to himself.
Jonathan Lopez, a candidate for Umatilla County commissioner, fessed up to writing an anonymous racist letter on July 6, 2020.
According to the Washington Times, Lopez claimed to have received the letter in June.
But he then confessed to the police that he was the individual who wrote the letter, the East Oregonian reported.
Lopez is Hispanic and claimed that he found a letter directed to him which was allegedly filled with racist language on June 23. He published the photo of a typed letter on Facebook, which hundreds of users shared in a span of 24 hours. Since then, the post has been removed.
Things changed, though, when police did a follow-up with Lopez about the incident on July 3. Law enforcement officials recounted that Lopez confessed to being the author of the letter.
“The time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters, not to mention it needlessly adds to the incredible tension that exists in our nation today,” Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston said to the newspaper.
Edmiston then said the case would be sent over to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s office. From there it would be reviewed for initiating a false report, which is a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon.
Lopez ended up losing a primary election for a seat on the Umatilla County Board of Commissioners in May 2020.
In correspondence with the East Oregonian, Lopez claimed that he wanted to have a discussion with Edmiston about racism in Umatilla County. He used the letter as an example of the alleged racism that people experienced on a daily basis.
“I never meant to file a report, it just kind of spiraled out,” he stated. Lopez added that he “never meant to mislead” the public.
America is going through a late stage of political correctness, where all sorts of grievance politics is encouraged against normal Americans.
A polity with such internal turmoil is destined for social instability sooner or later.
