Dallas Law Firm Buys Robert E. Lee Statue to Preserve History

Published

on

NBC DFW reports that a Dallas-based law firm won the auction for the statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee that the city previously removed two years ago.

Holmes Firm PC put in the winning bid of $1.435 million for the Lee statue after the city decided to put it up for auction.

This was one of the more high-profile confederate monument removals in the U.S. after the fallout of the Charlottesville, Virginia rally.

This firm is owned by Ronald L. Holmes and it has no plans at the moment for what it will do with the statue. Nor has it stated that it is representing another person who wanted the bronze sculpture of Lee and another solider on horseback.

The law firm identified itself at the auction as “LawDude” and did not immediately respond to contact requests from other outlets on Wednesday June 12, 2019.

Dallas Assistant City Manager Joey Zapata stated that the city of Dallas does not have any other plans to auction off other Confederate monuments. He added that the money the city received for the sculpture would go back into the city’s contingency fund.

Statue removals have been a part of the Left’s new strategy of destroying history in order to advance political correctness culture in America.

BLP reported on their success in having a highway renamed in Virginia, while another campaign is brewing in Charleston, South Carolina to remove a John Calhoun statue.

In all likelihood, this will not be the last confederate monument to be removed as the Left is prepared to go to war over artifacts of America history all in the name of fighting “racism”.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
