The mayor of Lexington, Kentucky, says after the events in Charlottesville, Virginia, he is taking the steps to remove two Confederate-era statues from the lawn of a former courthouse.
Mayor Jim Gray tweeted Saturday he will ask the Lexington-Fayette County Urban County Council at its Tuesday work session to ask a state military commission for permission to take down the statues of John Hunt Morgan and John C. Breckinridge.
Gray tweeted he intended to make the announcement next week, but the "tragic events in Charlottesville" had accelerated his announcement.

Ultimately, this is all about Gray wanting media praise. Never let a crisis go to waste.
And what will be taken down in honor of the Republican in PA who was murdered by his leftist neighbor does he get a mention
Looks like the American Taliban is kicking the crap out of the “Land Of The Free - Home Of The Brave.”
Gray openly admits he’s a homosexual.
Sick grab for MSM attention — they’re dealing with bodies in VA and Gray has to try to grab attention for himself.
This will now be used to eradicate Confederate statutes like the murders in SC were used to eliminate the Confederate Flag.
Erasing history is easier than I thought.......
The media has their talking points, and they will stick to them for days now.
So, this mayor guy is assuming that gazing upon the statue of a long-dead Confederate whose historical significance, to the overwhelming majority of today’s young people, is an utter mystery, will somehow incite violence? Who votes for these morons???
What comes down from islam murders and blm knockout games?
These disgusting leftists either tread lightly or they will get bitten real badly.
It's happening in Democrat-controlled urban areas.
Who votes for these morons???
Bastard ....my great grandfather fought under Breckenridge at Shiloh ....
Gentlemen : RESIST this !
If you look at objectively, these virtue signalers are really attacking veterans. Congress said in a series of laws from the late 1800’s up through 1958, that Confederate vets were to be considered US vets [latest was Public Law 85-425 on 5/23/58].
As we continue to appease what has become this nation’s Taliban it won’t surprise me to see the same scum ranting to tear down the Viet Nam Wall in DC because it’s “Non-Communist” or something.
fight back , don’t let it happen
screw their supposed authority , they are dirtbags
When will the dozens of buildings, street signs, monuments, and schools named after Robert Byrd will be taken down in WV?
Democrat social theorists, many of whom are white, are laying the moral, legal and intellectual framework for mass eradication of the white race.
They are dead serious about this
It's time for Americans to pull together an put a stop to these extremists
John Breckinridge was Vice President of the United States (1857-1861)...and a Democrat. He was the Presidential candidate of the Southern Democrats in 1860.
by destroying vestiges of the Civil War doesn’t that make the civil rights movement also irrelevant?
You’re right; when I see skinhead-types, I know many of them see the writing on the wall: Our government denies them opportunity under the guise of “diversity” and “equal outcomes”, and taxes them to death giving their money to non-whites who use it to breed.
If we want to preserve our history, we have to breed; otherwise, it will just be re-written by the “others” that inherit this country in a couple of decades.
