Even after former Governor Nikki Haley removed the confederate flag from the South Carolina state capitol in 2015, iconoclastic leftist activists want to remove more monuments.
7News reports that they’re now targeting a Confederate monument currently located outside an Upstate courthouse.
Black Lives Matter Greenwood co-founder Travis Greene declared “It should not be here to pay homage to a time in which everyone wasn’t equal and we still fight for those equalities today.”
Greene claims that the monument, which was built in 1903, is privately owned.
He stated that “Either the united daughters of the confederacy or the daughters of the American revolution” own the monument.”
Greene added, “If you read the article from 1903 in the newspaper, it says in favor and to remember General Lee. General Lee was the biggest racist in the state of South Carolina.”
The Black Lives Matter activist referenced the Heritage Act to point out that this potential monument removal would not need conventional legislative approval to go through.
A recent ruling from a local judge on a war memorial is relevant in this case.
According to Greene, the judge’s “ruling from that case opened up many monuments to a new light under the heritage act. Under that ruling, it says monuments that are privately owned are not covered under the Heritage Act.”
The Heritage Act makes any effort to remove, change, or rename a monument on public property without a 2/3 vote from the general assembly illegal.
However, some Greenwood County residents want to preserve this monument.
“It is just a huge part of history. Any monument to remember our history, where we came from – where black people came from where white people came from, it doesn’t matter,” said Marcy Pitts.
Sbe added, “[It’s] not only a monument to what happened and to history but a monument to these people who lost their lives, who suffered, they should be remembered.”
Some will brush away monument removals as symbolic, but they’re part of a concerted effort to advance a politically correct agenda that is hell-bent on destroying American history.
Confederate figures are easy to attack, but they’re only the springboard for even large assaults on American history. BLP reported how even Thomas Jefferson has become victim to this PC agenda. Nikki Haley has no idea about the Pandora’s Box she unleashed when she took down the Confederate flag.
OUTRAGEOUS: Milwaukee Man Who was Defending His Home from a Leftist Mob is Arrested
A Milwaukee man was arrested on September 14, 2020 for simply making an attempt to defend his home from a leftist mob.
At first, agitators launched a demonstration at a neighbor’s home claiming that he was racist. When the man eventually drew out his gun for fear of his life, the police were immediately called and the man would later be arrested.
A Twitter user Kitty Shackleford reported on this story.
A crowd gathered around the man’s house and laid out a Black Lives Matter banner on the street with a BLM fist cutout also present. In addition, an American flag was seen hanging close to the man’s front door.
The man’s allegedly racist behavior was drawn from a 15 second video that children shot and posted to Facebook.
Before the police arrived, the gathering in front of the man’s house had a party feel to it with loud music and children and adults dancing in the streets. A good portion of the people outside took out their cell phones and started recording the man’s home.
The confrontation became heated when the activists directly called out the man. The agitators then shined their lights on the man’s home, which had an American flag hanging next to the front door and an “all aboard the Trump Train” sign.
After the activists turned off the music, they started yelling on a megaphone, “Hey Pete!”
As the agitators yelled, the man can be seen inside, holding his gun.
When it became clear that the man was ready to defend himself and his house, the group of agitators called the cops on the homeowner. The activists continued the party after the man was taken away.
This event was organized on Facebook by Vaun L. Mayes, a local activist who was recently arrested on burglary charges. His charges were then dropped by Milwaukee County District Attorney John T. Chisholm, a Democrat.
Mayes planned the gathering in front of his neighbor’s house and was able to collect donations to organize this disturbance.
Vivek Saxena of BizPac Review pointed out that Mayes is also currently facing federal charges for allegedly “plotting to firebomb a Milwaukee police station after the Sherman Park unrest in 2016.”
In present-day America, the right to self-defense is becoming less respected by the day. Even worse, radical left-wing mobs receive protection from the state and are allowed to wreak havoc. But when decent Americans attempt to stand up for themselves, they get pulverized.
This is anarcho-tyranny at its worst.
I'm still trying to figure out whose house this is. Milwaukee, WI – seems to be outside of a house who BLM is saying pointed a gun at them. The title of the video is "We still lit – This goes out to all the racist neighbors out there" so I assume it is just a local "racist" 1/3 pic.twitter.com/84X6BDQwnD
