Kay Ivey, the Governor of Alabama, has said “No” to the removal of historic, Confederate monuments that are located on public property. The social justice warriors are up in arms about the singing of this legislation…of course!
They are upset because the historic monuments are “racist” yet they have monuments and road names, and holidays named after historic figures that are from the same era. How is that any different?
According to The Hill, the move comes after New Orleans recently removed statues honored Confederate figures. Sen. Gerald Allen, the lead sponsor of the measure, has said that he wants to end the “wave of political correctness” that is growing across the nation.
“Where does it end? Are all parts of American history subject to purging, until every Ivy League professor is satisfied and the American story has been re-written as nothing but a complete fraud and a betrayal of our founding values of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?” he said.
The bill will make sure that any public monuments over 40 years old will be protected if local governments try to remove them. On top of that, the bill protects against the renaming of public schools that are over 40 years old.
This means that nine Confederate monuments in Alabama will be protected.
This is the south. I would be extremely surprised if they were not protected. This is our history and we must remember where we come from. There is an old saying that says, “Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it.”
Of course, Hillary and her lackies are always going to make as big of a deal as possible:
@thehill They need to chlorinate the gene pool down there.

@thehill All the flyover states are just the worst.. Get out of the way of progress and take your bibles and racist monuments with you.

@thehill What if it caught fire? Spontaneously. Does the law say it has to be replaced?
