Though the ad doesn’t mention it, the iconic Alamo, an 80-year-old, 60-foot memorial to the 189 (or more) men who gave their lives for Texas, seems present.

This reporter was the keynote speaker on the very issue of preserving Texas history and defending the Alamo memorial in Dallas a year ago today.

Here’s a sample from my presentation to the influential Republican organization, Preston Hollow-Park Cities Forum:

If they can tear down the visible reminders of who we
are, they can make us forget how far we’ve come.

And if they can tell us where we have been, then they
can change where we are going.

Countries​ ​that​ ​tear​ ​down​ ​their​ ​history,​ ​soon​ ​tear​ ​down
other​ ​things,​ ​like​ ​FREE​ ​SPEECH.

Land Commissioner George P. Bush signed an Alamo redesign plan that includes dismantling and relocating the Cenotaph — memorial to the men who died for Texas liberty.

“Carefully disassemble the structure and conserve all the marble sections in a controlled environment,” the plan reads. “Provide a new structure [non – corrosive assembly instead of reinforced concrete],” it continues.

It’s always best to respect a monument by tearing it apart and moving it somewhere else.

“Several potential locations were considered. The proposed location … will provide appropriate context and symbolism for the structure.”

San Antonio City Council wants to “honor” the men of the Alamo by moving their tombstone to the place where Santa Anna burned their carcasses following his disreputable and savage order of “Deguello” (take no prisoners, kill everyone, women, children, etc.).

In response to Bush’s proposed actions, Patrick committed in recorded audio dated October, 2017, to stop Cenotaph from being torn down.

Patrick has not since renewed his commitment to that “line in the sand.” In fact, Patrick was part of the State Preservation Board decision that consigned a Civil War memorial plaque to the ashbin after being on Capitol grounds since 1959.

“The events of 1836 were just one small chapter in 10,000 years of history,” said George Skarmeas, Bush’s Alamo redesign planning director until recently.

The Cenotaph is inscribed thusly,

Erected in memory of the heroes who sacrificed their lives at the Alamo, March 6, 1836, in the defense of Texas. They chose never to surrender nor retreat; these brave hearts, with flag still proudly waving, perished in the flames of immortality that their high sacrifice might lead to the founding of this Texas

The fighter himself commented on this news, declaring “The anti communism bus tour will be arriving at a city near you #supernecessary.”

 

Masvidal, whose parents are Cuban and Peruvian, has been an outspoken Trump supporter.

Unlike other sports leagues, the UFC has uniquely positioned itself by not adopting the woke antics of leagues such as the NFL and NBA.

Masvidal is a veteran of MMA promotions such as Strikeforce, Bellator, and the UFC. He is currently fighting under the UFC banner and holds a record of 35-14. According to MMA website Sherdog, he is currently ranked in 4th place . Similarly, he is ranked in 4th place according to the UFC’s rankings.

The Welterweight fighter currently owns the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, after he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into the first round. Additionally, Masvidal won the “BMF” championship against Nate Diaz in 2019 after he battered Diaz and forced a technical knockout via doctor stoppage.

Masvidal fought current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on less than a week’s notice for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251, after he replaced the original challenger Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for the Wuhan virus. Before the fight took place, Masvidal signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Masvidal ended up losing the fight via unanimous decision.

Nevertheless, the card reportedly netted 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in America.
