SHREVEPORT -- More than a year after four monuments to the Confederate era were removed from the New Orleans landscape, a federal judge has cleared the way for removal of another Louisiana Confederate memorial.

Somebody keeping a list?
‘Twould appear that The War of Northern Aggression is STILL not over!
“There ought to be a park somewhere where all these monuments can be put.”
Sounds like a business opportunity. Salvage all the monuments, set them up in an amusement park somewhere, and call it “Dixieland”.
The Ark Park in Kentucky needs an additional source of revenue.
No problem. Michelle said we had to “change our conversations, change our history” and so forth to enter into Obama’s Fundamentally Transformed America.
So, sure, pull all them monuments to currently unpopular things down. CHANGE our history — it’s to protect the children from disturbing ideas. They all need unquestionably Safe Spaces, everywhere.
Soon, we’ll be able to remove ALL those frightening monuments to ALL wars in ALL times and places. THEN we can start in on certain museums that remind us of sad things or violent things — like maybe the Holocaust Museum.
Pull ALL that disturbing stuff down if anything offends anybody anywhere at any time — or, if it MIGHT do so.
Be ignorant and be happy. Keep your children safe from such negative material.

If a local Martin Luther King memorial makes me uncomfortable because it reminds me of slavery, can it be taken down?
Erase history as if it never happened.
This is how you destroy a nation and people.
Disgusting. This statue which had been up for over 100 years was a tribute to the war dead. Should we bulldoze Arlington?
