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.
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
