GROSS: City of Dallas Set to Profit From Whitewashing History

Published

on

A Robert E. Lee statue that was removed from a Dallas park in 2017 has a new owner.

The bidder, known as “LawDude” bought it for $1,435,000 according to a report from CBS Dallas.

The Associated Press reported on the Lone Star Auctioneers Inc. website’s confirmation that online bidding for the sculpture ended on Wednesday, June 5, 2019.

This auction will allow the city to recoup the funds it spent to remove the statue, but should leave more money in the city’s coffers than before removal.

This statue removal was met with considerable backlash as CBS Dallas reported in 2017.

Right after the Dallas City Council took a vote to remove the statue, a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans was granted a restraining order that blocked the removal.

However, a judge threw out the restraining order that Hiram Patterson, the Sons of Confederate Veterans member in question, requested. The judge argued that Patterson hadn’t proven how the removal of the monument violated free speech rights nor could he prove that the City of Dallas removed it without respecting due process.

Statue removals are in vogue these days. BLP reported that activists are working to remove a John Calhoun statue from Marion Square in Charleston, South Carolina.

These statue removals efforts are part of a larger campaign to advance political correctness culture in America. By removing monuments, the Left is ensuring that any type of movement that is inspired by certain landmarks of American history will have trouble rallying its base.

A society that does not recognize its history is essentially rootless.

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.

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.
