Sheriff Clarke came out in strong support of a confederate monument about to be destroyed. The story has been retweeted more than 300 times.
“Separating people from their history is the second step to enslavement after first disarming them,” Clarke wrote.
This statue is on the national historic register and it commemorates soldiers who died – sons of Kentucky.
One professor of Pan-African studies at Louisville university wrote an article complaining about a 70-foot tall, 120-year old monument dedicated to the Sons of Confederate Veterans which is capped with a statue of Jefferson Davis.
This article caused the Louisville mayor and the university president to move the statue from near the campus. It’s been a source of contention for a while.
University President James Ramsey and Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said on Friday, “It’s time for us to move this monument to a more appropriate place.”
The statue is history and it is a beautiful structure donated by the Kentucky Woman’s Monument Association. The statue doesn’t have a home so they will just stick it in storage for now where it will serve as a reminder of how we got to our ultimate end when our country is completely lost to statism and cultural Marxism.
A Kentucky judge has ordered a temporary restraining order. A GOP congressional candidate went to court to block the move.
The statue is being removed to satisfy the multicultural, inclusive, PC Marxists. They are inclusive of everything they agree with. The normal, traditional American has been so demonized that they are the counter-culture on college campuses.

The left is criticizing the website it came from but that is irrelevant. It’s about this story.
