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.
Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE
She’s citing Biden family corruption.
Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.
Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.

Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.
Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.
Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.
Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.
The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
