Left-wing cultural criminals showed their abject ignorance and intolerance during a statue destruction operation in Madison, Wisconsin on Tuesday night, destroying a statue of a decorated Union Army Officer who served in the Civil War and was a prolific anti-slavery activist before it.
The statue of Hans Christian Heg, a Norwegian immigrant to the United States who was one of Wisconsin’s most decorated Civil War heroes in the Civil War, was dismounted from its mount at the town square and rolled into the nearby Lake Monona.

The statue of the American patriot, who lost his life after sustaining mortal wounds in the crucial 1863 Battle of Chickamauga, was beheaded before the cultural fanatics dumped it into the lake. The phrase “Black is Beautiful” was spraypainted onto the mount of Heg’s statue.
Before the Civil War, Heg led a local group of ‘Wide Awakes,’ an abolitionist group aligned with the Republican Party that sought to assist black slaves fleeing mercenary slave catchers.
The mob of thugs also destroyed the community’s “Forward” statue, which commemorates the progress of women in Wisconsin.
Reports indicate the mob may have damaged a city building.
One would think the Left would hang its head in shame after abolishing a statue of Civil War hero and U.S. President Ulysses Grant, but it appears one Union Army hero being desecrated isn’t enough for the hardcore leftist ideologues who seek to purge any mention of the United States’ national heroes from memory.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott Pledges to Outlaw Big Tech Censorship
Texas has had enough.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is pledging to outlaw Big Tech’s left-wing censorship, announcing his support of a bill in the Texas State Senate that would open social media monopolies to lawsuits from users at a state level.
State Senator Bryan Hughes Senate Bill 12 would provide legal recourse for users of Big Tech platforms who are banned from the services to return, designating Big Tech monopolies such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook as common carriers.
“They are common carriers and they cannot discriminate against people … it’s a violation of the first amendment,” Hughes said. “This is going to protect Texas’ free speech and get them back online.”
I am joining @SenBryanHughes to announce a bill prohibiting social media companies from censoring viewpoints.
It's un-American, Un-Texan, & soon to be illegal.https://t.co/zSdirRa1pj

“These are the areas that used to be the courthouse square where people would come and talk,” said Abbott of the legislation. “Now, people are going to Facebook and Twitter to talk about their political ideas, and what Facebook and Twitter are doing — they are controlling the flow of information, and sometimes denying the flow of information.”
“Texas is taking a stand against big tech political censorship. We are not going to allow it in the Lone Star state.”
The law establishing legal recourse against online censorship may prove legally durable enough to avoid breaching Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. That law provides immunity for user-created content on internet platforms, and doesn’t give social media platforms a right to discriminate against active or potential users on the basis of political ideology.
The future for fighting Big Tech censorship lies at a state level. While some state Republican officials have proven reluctant to separate themselves from the lucrative business lobbies of Big Tech oligarchs, Hughes’ approach seems legally innovative enough to give free speech defenders a fighting shot at free expression online.
