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.
OUTRAGEOUS: Milwaukee Man Who was Defending His Home from a Leftist Mob is Arrested
A Milwaukee man was arrested on September 14, 2020 for simply making an attempt to defend his home from a leftist mob.
At first, agitators launched a demonstration at a neighbor’s home claiming that he was racist. When the man eventually drew out his gun for fear of his life, the police were immediately called and the man would later be arrested.
A Twitter user Kitty Shackleford reported on this story.
A crowd gathered around the man’s house and laid out a Black Lives Matter banner on the street with a BLM fist cutout also present. In addition, an American flag was seen hanging close to the man’s front door.
The man’s allegedly racist behavior was drawn from a 15 second video that children shot and posted to Facebook.
Before the police arrived, the gathering in front of the man’s house had a party feel to it with loud music and children and adults dancing in the streets. A good portion of the people outside took out their cell phones and started recording the man’s home.
The confrontation became heated when the activists directly called out the man. The agitators then shined their lights on the man’s home, which had an American flag hanging next to the front door and an “all aboard the Trump Train” sign.
After the activists turned off the music, they started yelling on a megaphone, “Hey Pete!”
As the agitators yelled, the man can be seen inside, holding his gun.
When it became clear that the man was ready to defend himself and his house, the group of agitators called the cops on the homeowner. The activists continued the party after the man was taken away.
This event was organized on Facebook by Vaun L. Mayes, a local activist who was recently arrested on burglary charges. His charges were then dropped by Milwaukee County District Attorney John T. Chisholm, a Democrat.
Mayes planned the gathering in front of his neighbor’s house and was able to collect donations to organize this disturbance.
Vivek Saxena of BizPac Review pointed out that Mayes is also currently facing federal charges for allegedly “plotting to firebomb a Milwaukee police station after the Sherman Park unrest in 2016.”
In present-day America, the right to self-defense is becoming less respected by the day. Even worse, radical left-wing mobs receive protection from the state and are allowed to wreak havoc. But when decent Americans attempt to stand up for themselves, they get pulverized.
This is anarcho-tyranny at its worst.
I'm still trying to figure out whose house this is. Milwaukee, WI – seems to be outside of a house who BLM is saying pointed a gun at them. The title of the video is "We still lit – This goes out to all the racist neighbors out there" so I assume it is just a local "racist" 1/3 pic.twitter.com/84X6BDQwnD
