Liberals are advocating for the removal of every Civil War statue.
And they’re not going to stop until each one has come down.
And they’re already planning to replace these statues with alternative figures, including this rapper.
After the Charlottesville incident, liberals banded together to tear down the General Robert E. Lee statue.
Then cities like Baltimore, Maryland, and Lexington, Kentucky followed suit by peacefully removing Civil War statues in the middle of the night.
But that didn’t stop droves of angry leftists tearing down or vandalizing other statues.
Where does it stop?
As President Trump aptly put it during a news conference,
“Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments.
You…can’t change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson – who’s next, Washington, Jefferson?”
But not only are they ripping them down – they’re already plotting replacements, which includes rapper Missy Elliot.
“As the debate over the presence of Confederate monuments in the U.S. rages, petitioners in one Virginia town want a statue of music icon Missy Elliott to replace that of a Confederate soldier on a plinth in the city.
In Portsmouth, Virginia, more than 21,000 people have petitioned for the statue to be replaced with hip-hop star Elliott, who was born in the city in 1971.
The petition is only a few thousand short of the 25,000 required for it to be put before the city’s mayor and council.
“Together we can put white supremacy down, flip it and reverse it.
Let us come together in getting City Council to erect this statue in honor of Missy Elliott and all those in the great City of Portsmouth who work it each and every day,” the petition’s organizer wrote on the website.
The debate over the presence of Confederate monuments in cities across the U.S. has intensified after violence erupted at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12.
Protesters had gathered in the city to protest the planned removal of a statue of General Robert E. Lee, who commanded the South’s forces during the Civil War.
Several cities and institutions have removed their statues after the violence in Charlottesville, with the University of Texas at Austin removing four statues of Confederacy figures overnight.
The events of Charlottesville “make it clear, now more than ever, that Confederate monuments have become symbols of modern white supremacy and neo-Nazism,” said university President Greg Fenves, as quoted by the Dallas News.
Missy Elliott, whose real name is Melissa Arnette “Missy” Elliott, is a 30-time Grammy winner and the bestselling female rap album artist, according to Nielsen.”
The real question here is why does a statue need to come down in order for her to have one?
Just build a separate statue. This isn’t complicated.
But you can expect this to happen everywhere, and they won’t stop until every single one is replaced.
