POLL: Most Americans Oppose Removing Statues of Confederate Generals

The silent majority.

Published

A new poll from the Washington Post/ABC reveals that a majority of Americans favor keeping statues honoring Confederate generals in place, with 52% of the public wanting such statues preserved and 43% supporting their removal.

An even wider majority of Americans support preserving statues of U.S. Presidents who owned slaves, such as Andrew Jackson, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson. 68% of Americans want statues of these presidents maintained, while 25% want them removed. The fact that a quarter of Americans want statues of slaveowning Presidents removed is noteworthy in and of itself, considering it would entail removing statues of the United States’ founding fathers and most historic Presidents.

Hispanic Americans appeared to generally agree with White Americans in support of maintaining historic statues, whereas three-quarters of Black Americans support removing Confederate statues from places of public prominence.

The polling data suggests that there’s far less support for Confederate and American statue destruction than the national mob of historic vandals and iconoclasts might think, having attacked numerous well-known monuments and statues to historic Americans across the country. The federal government has only begun to start criminally charging those who attack historic federal property, most recently indicting several people for an attack on an Andrew Jackson statue outside of the White House.

Half of Americans also oppose renaming US military bases named after Confederate generals, with 42% of the public supporting renaming the facilities.

The poll also reveals wide support for the Black Lives Matter movement, with 63% of Americans saying that they support it.

The poll was gauged through phone calls to more than 1,000 Americans across the country.

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke Will Begin Teaching at Texas State University in Spring 2021

The Failed Senate Candidate Will Start Indoctrinating College Students  Next Year

Former Congressman and failed Senate candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke will start teaching Texas politics at Texas State University during the spring 2021 semester, according to an announcement by the Department of Political Science on October 15, 2020. Although his hire has not been finalized, O’Rourke will join the department to teach an online class.

Political Science Chair Ken Grasso said he talked about potential course material with O’Rourke. The former congressman said he has taken a great interest into Texas politics recently.

“He originally approached people in the administration… and expressed an interest in teaching,” Grasso commented. “I was thrilled. He’s got a unique take on things with his experience as a congressman and as [a] senatorial candidate and even a presidential candidate. So we’re very happy to have him.”

In addition, Grasso claims O’Rourke wants to reach out to young adults and is motivated to teach, above all, during a “crucial time for the state and the country.”

Grasso is of the opinion that the addition of O’Rourke would bring a lot of energy to the political science department.

“I don’t know that so much it’s going to increase enrollments; it’ll certainly increase visibility,” Grasso opined. “That’s always a good thing. We tend to sometimes to get lost in the shadow of other institutions.”

If the Wuhan virus pandemic dies down by spring time, Grasso stated that O’Rourke could potentially do in-person classes. The department aims to limit O’Rourke’s class size in order to promote stronger interactions with students.

Grasso cited O’Rourke’s experience in Congress and the El Paso city council as unique factors that will help students understand Texas politics.

“He’s an actual practitioner out there,” Grasso stated. “You don’t know a man until you’ve walked a mile in his moccasins, and none of us have walked in his moccasins.”

For now, O’Rourke has plans of teaching for the spring 2021 semester but Grasso is optimistic that the university can forge a long-lasting relationship with the former congressman. He believes that this could be “the beginning of a long-term relationship.”

The fact that a darling of the Left and ex-politician is set to be quickly integrated into a major university in Texas just shows how consumed by leftism most American universities have become. O’Rourke will do a fantastic job in propagating political correctness, much to the detriment of his students’ learning experience.
