DALLAS, TX — In the second-most politically liberal city in the Lone Star State, council members voted to remove a Confederate statue of Robert E. Lee from a graveyard, according to reports.
The action by Dallas City Council represents a new benchmark for what is considered “normal” in the ever-expanding, runaway push to tear down reminders of America’s past. Apparently, the dead will now be disturbed to satisfy virtue-signalling liberal overcompensation; “RIP” no more (if your head rests under the likeness of a historically unpopular figure.)
Members voted 11-4 in favor of a resolution that would declare the monument of Confederate soldiers inside Pioneer Park “a noncontributing structure for the historic overlay district.”
“During Wednesday’s council meeting, more than a half dozen people spoke to council members. Most were in favor of removing the monument,” reports Fox affiliate Channel 4.
It was far less public comment than previous meetings on the subject.
“The plaque is considered controversial and inaccurate by some scholars due to its particular representati0n of the casus belli: it claims slavery was not the cause of the conflict,” according to our report, Feb 12.
For that alleged heresy, for which there has never been actual academic consensus, liberals demand we tear down history. The actual words inscribed on the plaque read,
“We therefore, pledge ourselves to preserve pure ideals … To study and teach the truths of history (one of the most important of which is, that the War between the States was not a rebellion, nor was its underlying cause slavery).”
“In the only debate held in Texas’ gubernatorial election last year, Gov. Greg Abbott, who was re-elected, had said it should be up to the Legislature to take it down and that it ‘absolutely’ should come down because of historical inaccuracy,” wrote Suzanne Gamboa at NBC on Jan. 25.
But it wasn’t the governor who ultimately had to “run old Dixie down,” Abbott contends. He pledged to abide by whatever the State Preservation Board decided.
Except that, Abbott chairs the board. Texas House speaker Dennis Bonnen and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, both Republicans, serve as co-vice chairs on the preservation board under Abbott.
The board voted to “store” the plaque while it takes public comment over 90 days.
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.
