DALLAS, TX — Recently nominated Texas State Senate candidate Pat Fallon, wants to introduce legislation to protect war memorials, including Confederate symbols.
“It’s our history, and taking a monument down is not going to change anything,” said Fallon. “We became the greatest country history’s ever known after the Civil War.” Fallon’s proposal would protect all Texas memorials, not just those from the Civil War.
The fight to remove Confederate statues is propelled largely by “Antifa” SJW drones, all of whom generally view Civil War history through an extremely narrow prism.
Taking too shallow a view of Civil War history is an absurd exercise. Consider that Robert E. Lee, who has been so vilified by lawless mobs of college students in ninja costumes, began to emancipate his slaves before the Civil War.
Unlike Ulysses S. Grant’s wife, Mrs. Lee “tutored slaves in basic reading and writing so that each could read the Bible” continuing the practice “even though Virginia law prohibited the education of slaves by the 1840s,” according to the National Park Service.
Likewise, George Washington freed all his slaves. Thomas Jefferson authored a measure in Congress seeking to outlaw slavery in new states, which fell one vote short. “God’s justice cannot sleep forever,” he wrote after the vote.
Jefferson also compensated his slaves and gave them first-rate living quarters.
Sadly, facts are irrelevant to statue fanatics. They “feel” offended, and are willing to tear down history, instead of walking to work another way or changing the channel.
The push to tear down history is gaining ground in Texas.
At least for some, the runaway train that is statue hysteria can be blamed in large part on Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. That’s what Chris Ekstrom, head of Conservative Response Team said when he spoke with Big League Politics.
“Greg Abbott has allowed Texas Monuments to be removed. His silence on the issue is deafening. Our TX GOP are polled at 90+% OPPOSED to removal! Abbott stopped localities from banning fracking & he damn sure can stop #HistoricalVandalism of our Monuments,” Elkstrom stated.
Abbott seemingly sided with left-leaning ousted State House Speaker Joe Strauss, who lobbied for the removal of a plaque on capitol grounds memorializing Texas confederate dead.
The governor also remained mostly silent in the face of brazen efforts by Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush to tear down the Alamo memorial erected in honor of those who died for Texas independence — that is, until he was forced to answer at a town hall.
He then made the following comments:
“As a native Texan myself, I know what it means to be a Texan. I know what the Battle of the Alamo means, not just to Texans but to the entire world,”
“I will not back off or back down from ensuring that our state treasure, the Alamo, is going to send the clarion message that it is intended to send. And that is that that is sacred ground, sacred ground that holds the lives of those who sacrificed for our state,”
“And I will ensure that the rendering of the Alamo, when the renovation is done, is going to tell the story that you and I know is the truth about what Texas stands for.”
Bear in mind that this is the same governor who only months prior lambasted Bush for allowing the private owners of many Alamo artifacts (Daughters of Texas), to sue the State of Texas to regain ownership. Bush allegedly stole the artifacts in question, which is exactly how the courts saw it.
Those actions contradict the claims of Abbott as a man who cares deeply about preserving vital Alamo (or Confederate) history.
In short, Abbott may be a little too cozy with Antifa statue drones. Time will tell.
TRUST THE MAN: Here’s A Growing Map of Deep State Conspirators Who Have Been Fired
President Donald Trump continues to solidify the American people’s position in the federal government.
Former FBI director James Comey is reeling from the FBI’s release of information pertaining to his exit from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The forms reveal a mad dash by the Department of Justice in the days after Comey’s spring 2017 firing to retrieve secret information from Comey’s office and to figure out the extent of what Comey was actually doing as FBI director.
Comey signed the Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement, which makes it all the more serious that Comey violated sections 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 13 by illegally handing over presidential briefing memorandums (page 5 and 6 of FBI release).

Comey is not alone in his government unemployment.
An interactive mapping project has sprung up on mindmeister to track Deep State conspirator cells that have been fired in the age of President Donald Trump.
