As if removing Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson statues wasn’t enough, the Charlottesville City Council will hold a debate on Monday to determine if a Lewis, Clark and Sacajawea statue will be removed.
According to CBS 19, the discussion will center around the establishment of a commission that will ultimately determine the fate of the statue located on West Main Street.
In May, the council passed a resolution to move the statue in a way that aligns with the design plan for West Main. Now, the council will determine if it will remove the statue entirely.
According to staff member estimates, the new commission would need $75,000 for “consultancy fees, meeting space rentals, advertisements and other related tasks for public involvement.”
This committee would have to make a final decision about what to do with the statue within a nine-month timeframe. Several options on the table would be removing the statue and selling it to an interested party, keeping the statue in the same place, or provide more context to the statue.
The statue’s portrayal of Sacajawea, who is hunched behind Lewis and Clark, has been met with considerable criticism. Kasey Keeler, the Native American studies postdoctoral fellow and instructor at UVA, claims that the statue downplays Sacajawea’s role during this bold expedition to explore the western portion of the United States.
Statue removals have been a new front in the battle to establish political correctness culture throughout America.
BLP reported on activists’ desire to remove a John Calhoun statue in Charleston, South Carolina. Around the same time, Arlington County successfully renamed one of its highways in order to placate PC demands.
The targeting of confederate monuments has now opened the floodgates for the removal of other figures in American history.
If Americans don’t fight back, they could see many historical artifacts wiped out by the iconoclastic Left.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
