Texans overwhelmingly oppose the removal of historical monuments, according the a new survey.
In its newest scientific poll of 1,000 Texans conducted by Gravis, 57 percent-to-27 percent of Texans want Confederate monuments to stay. And schools named after General Robert E. Lee? Those can stay too, if 66 percent of those surveyed have their way. Only 22 percent opposed confederate-inspired school names remaining unchanged.
Christopher Ekstrom, the Conservative Response Team’s national chairman, welcomed the survey results:
Texans, including many Democrats, oppose removing Confederate monuments and renaming schools — actions that would be prohibited under legislation currently in the Texas House and Senate.
The issue is one that currently animates the Texas political landscape. A new TV and radio ad makes an appeal to Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick to fight the mounting effort by Democrats to systematically tear down Texas history, saying that he “needs to make this happen … now,”
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.”
Other demographics in the Gravis survey were not as solidly behind protecting Texas history — but margins favoring removal in these groups are still lower than may be expected. Gravis found that African-Americans just 55 percent of African-Americans favor monument removal, with 22 percent opposed. Only 53 percent of African-Americans support renaming schools, while 30 percent oppose that idea.
By strong margins, Hispanics favor historical preservation. A mere 35 percent of Hispanics support monument removal, with 51 percent opposed. 27 percent of Hispanics favor renaming schools, with 68 percent opposed.
And by political affiliation?
Republicans solidly oppose monument removal (8 percent in favor, 84 percent against) while Democrats favor removal by just 44 to 36.
In January, a survey conducted by Atlantic Research found very similar results.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
