In the latest episode of leftist iconoclasm, several Georgia State University students called for the removal of the Henry W. Grady monument due to his controversial views on race.
Several student organizations published an open letter in the student newspaper, The Signal, which was directed at Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.
In the letter, they asked Bottoms to consider removing the monument that sits in downtown Atlanta at Marietta and Forsyth.
The conversation started in November, when The Signal’s staff received numerous complaints about Grady’s racist views during Reconstruction.
Editor-in-Chief David Varitek said once the complaints were discovered to be true, the paper felt obligated to reveal this information the public.
Once we actually started to put pen to paper, we realized that all of this was true,” Varitek stated. “Despite what many may have you believe, Grady is not an outstanding character in our city’s history. Grady is actually a brazen racist and white supremacist. And so then, we asked the question of ourselves why is he being civically revered in a public square with a statue that towers over our city?
Removing the statue will not be easy given some of the legislative realities in Georgia. Earlier in the year, state legislators passed SB77, which made monument removal illegal. Varitek believes that the conversation would lead to changes and other ways of addressing the issue.
“We would like a plaque erected adjacent to the statue that places Henry Grady’s legacy in the least into historical context, Varitek stated. “Secondly, we would like to see Mayor Bottoms come out and oppose this state law. And thirdly, we would like to see eventually that this statue relocated. But, we understand that it’s presently illegal to do that.”
Grady became famous for being the managing editor of The Atlanta Constitution and a notable public speaker.
Today, several buildings and schools are named after Grady which include Grady High School, Grady Memorial Hospital, and the University of Georgia School of Journalism and Mass Communications.
The Left is moving according to its politically correct script of subverting American culture by attempting to destroy Grady’s legacy through statue removal.
By labeling everything as “racist”, practically any artifact of American history—from the Founding up until the New Deal—can be banned according to the logic employed by the increasingly rootless and globalist Left.
Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE
She’s citing Biden family corruption.
Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.
Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) January 14, 2021
Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.
Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.
Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.
Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.
The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
