Last week, several Texas Republicans decided to join Democrats in destroying American history.
Brandon Waltens of Texas Scorecard noted that these spineless congressional Republicans did so, while Republicans in the Texas State legislature “made protecting and preserving historical monuments, statues, and other items a legislative priority, six of the individuals they elected to Congress voted to remove them from the U.S. Capitol” a few days prior.
On July 23, 2020, the U.S. House voted 305-113 to remove statues of figures who fought for the South during the Civil War.
These votes in favor of destroying American history came from a 100% united Democrat party vote and 71 Republicans who decided to kneel before the politically correct mob. Waltens pointed out that these elected officials who voted for removing the statues included: “U.S. Congressmen Michael Burgess of Flower Mound, Van Taylor of Plano, Dan Crenshaw of Houston, Michael McCaul of Austin, Will Hurd of San Antonio, and Pete Olson of Sugar Land.”
Crenshaw declared that he was “glad” to have voted for the statues’ removal from the nation’s capital.
Republicans won the civil war. That’s our history.
Democrats have a long list of segregationists & KKK members. That’s their history.
I’m glad to help them confront that racist past & voted to remove these Democrat statues from positions of prominence.https://t.co/D9KGH4Kz6b

On the other hand, Congressman Chip Roy voted against removing the monuments. He argued that “Democrats love to play politics with race while the people they purport to help are suffering at the hands of their ‘caring’ policies.”
According to the bill passed by the U.S. House, the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. would receive 11 statues as donations or states who originally donated them would receive them instead.
The bill’s passage comes at a time when iconoclastic hysteria is running high in American politics. Elected officials are also pushing the Pentagon to rename 10 U.S. Army facilities after Confederate generals, which includes Texas’ Fort Hood.
Texas Republican Congressman Mac Thornberry supported including a provision mandating that the Pentagon rename the bases in the legislation to fund the nation’s armed forces.
“Obviously, I do not agree with everything in the bill,” Thornberry commented. “But, on balance, it’s a good bill; and in some particulars, it’s a very good bill.”
The Trump administration has threatened to veto this legislation.
“President Trump has been clear in his opposition to politically motivated attempts like this to rewrite history and to displace the enduring legacy of the American Revolution with a new left-wing cultural revolution,” a White House spokesman said to POLITICO.
Unfortunately, many Republicans are not on the same page during this culture war. If they don’t get their act together, they will soon become politically irrelevant.
Standing up to protect artifacts of American history is a good place to start.
Florida Senator Moving to Designate “Donald J. Trump Highway” in Honor of 45th President
One of the greatest presidents in American history.
Florida State Senator Anthony Sabatini will move to rename a highway in the state “Donald J. Trump Highway,” in honor of the 45th President.
Sabatini made the announcement in a tweet on Tuesday. US 27 ultimately travels from Miami, Florida, to Fort Wayne, Indiana, traversing the United States from south to north. The segment located in Florida would be renamed after Trump in Sabatini’s proposal.
This legislative session I will be sponsoring an amendment to rename U.S. Highway 27 as the “President Donald J. Trump Highway.” Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one of the greatest Presidents in American History. pic.twitter.com/x2gNzv8pxv

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.
Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.
President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
