Under Cover of Night, New Orleans Removes Confederate Statues in a Nod to Cultural Marxism

13

New Orleans is removing four confederate statues to rewrite history and bow at the altar of cultural Marxism.  They began removing the first under cover of darkness.

“We will no longer allow the Confederacy to literally be put on a pedestal in the heart of our city.” – New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu

Last night, the Battle of Liberty statue was taken down. Statues in honor of Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and P.G.T. Beauregard and the President of the Confederate States Jefferson Davis are also slated to be removed.

Landrieu had the temerity to say it had nothing to do with politics.

In a statement, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said removing the statues sends a message that the city is inclusive and celebrates diversity.

“This is not about politics, blame or retaliation. This is not a naïve quest to solve all our problems at once,” Landrieu said. “This is about showing the whole world that we as a city and as a people are able to acknowledge, understand, reconcile — and most importantly — choose a better future.”

Next to go

The Times-Picayune reports construction workers on site early Monday wore masks to cover their faces. The name of the company they work for was also blacked out, according to the paper.

Two years ago, Landrieu said he would remove confederate statues from public property.

  1. They are too ignorant to realize that a better recourse would be to celebrate overcoming the past. By destroying the past they will have overcome Nothing as it will be forgotten.

  2. “We will no longer allow the Confederacy to literally be put on a pedestal in the heart of our city.” – New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu

    But high crime in the city thanks to years of leftist Democrat policies is perfectly alright.

  3. “He who wins the war……..writes the history books”. How can one truly remember, when we are forced to forget?

  4. The Taliban destroyed statues in Afghanistan and the US was indignant now we do the same thing because we are diverse SMH

  5. this is american history you can not rewrite the truth and fact.. i hope when they fined to in jail …if not i hope your haunted by those who fought for what they felt was right…

  6. Wiping out, not only US Veterans’ History (Act of Congress assigned Confederate soldiers Veteran status) but the black history of slaves, many of whom, fought willingly with honor for the only life they knew.

    Democrats want to keep black Americans as the “victims” they created and despise, but need.

  7. Landrieu said. “This is about showing the whole world that we as a city and as a people are able to acknowledge, understand, reconcile — and most importantly — choose a better future.”

    Good luck with your “better future” – a tourist city with no tourists spells a ghost town.

  8. The New Age Totalitarians. Still hard at work leading the naively willing Starbucks suburbanites and indoctrinated young leftists directly down the road to pseudo Utopian Socialist destruction. Such are the dangers of safety. Such is the cost of affluence.

  9. I for one, will no longer return to New Orleans and spend my Money. Hopefully, others will do the same. Let the ones that they are pleasing support the city. There is no longer any Historical Beauty to behold.

  10. Maybe another hurricane will again destroy the anti-American New Orleans & hopefully it will remain a wasteland then . Nothing but criminal & godless folks who’ve run & ruin it .
