Confederate Heritage Group Sues University Over Monument Removals

The University of Texas, utterly beholden to the winds of liberal change in the air after Charlottesville, made the rash decision last week to remove four Confederate statues from the campus grounds. But now, in addition to facing pushback from conservatives who believe that erasing the nation’s history is not quite the answer to modern society’s problems, the university is facing a lawsuit from a group that says it had no right to remove the statues.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans filed suit against the University of Texas this week, insisting that their rights were violated when UT President Greg Fenves ordered the statues be taken down. They have joined forces with a descendant of George Littlefield, the Confederate veteran who actually paid to have the statues erected before passing away in 1920. According to the lawsuit, the university is violating its agreement with Littlefield by removing the statues.

From the Dallas Morning News:

The group argues that the university is breaking the agreement it made with Littlefield, who created a bequest to pay for the commission and erection of those statues and several others on campus. The value of the monuments totaled $250,000 when they were erected nearly 100 years ago, the lawsuit claims, and they could be worth $500,000 each (or up to $3 million as a group) now.

“The statues were part of a bequest Maj. Littlefield made to the university that included funds for the promotion of American history from the Southern perspective,” the lawsuit states.

The lawsuit isn’t strictly limited to the legal interests of the Littlefield family, however. The SCV group also contends that Fenves infringed on their right to free speech by removing the statues without giving them a forum for discussion. Furthermore, they contend that Fenves broke a Texas state law that entrusts only the legislature and historical experts with the power to alter monuments to Texas vets.

While the SCV must be appreciated for doing everything in their power to preserve this nation’s southern heritage, the unfortunate fact is that they do not have a winning track record when it comes to these kinds of legal battles. Again and again, the courts have ruled that universities and municipalities have the right to erase these important reminders of history. And sadly, there are far too few people in politics willing to stand up for what the left has successfully phrased as monuments to racism.

Perhaps, with a president in the White House who actually IS willing to go there, things will start to turn around. But until we see some proof of that, we’re not holding our breath.

  3. • These university liberal bigots just want to twist the knife in white people and especially patriots

    • The racist anti-America left is doing everything possible to eliminate white influence, history, progress…exceptionalism…ALL the things that made and make America great.

    • WORSE, we’re letting them do it.

    • WHY are we the COWARDS and not pushing back?

    • DO SOMETHING!

      Get your family and friends involved.

      Contact your town, county, state and federal officials…

      …And don’t forget the local newspapers, TV/radio stations, schools and school boards.

      Tell them what you think and that you are not going to just stand idly by as our great country is taken over by peeps intent on destroying it.

      If you won’t, who will?

      Midnight’s not creeping, it’s at a gallop!
      .
      .
      PS: You might also mention that, for security and safety, no one should be allowed to wear masks and carry backpacks at demonstrations coz they are up to no good…

      …Anti-America groups like the Antifa, BLM and college snowflakes have shown this. How many times do they have to prove it?

      • many times I have voiced that anyone wearing masks at protests should be ARRESTED on the spot. If they can’t show their face, they should not be there.

        • william g munson

          Yes-and-we-will-be-taking-them-down-in-the-dead-of-the-DAYLIGHT-and-unmasked-too

          • I am confused, do you mean you would be taking the statues or the antifa down? If you mean the statues, you too could be arrested, destroying property that does not belong to you is a felony. Read up on the law. If you mean antifa, go for it.

          • Did-not-the-mayor-removed-them-in-the-dead-of-the-night-and-he-did-not-pay-for-them-or-own-them-and-was-he-or-any-other-involved-be-arrested-now-you-are-not-confused-anymore

          • Not confused anymore. Just did not know who you were talking about. Yes the mayor should be arrested it he O.K.’d it.

          • Hope she gets it.

          • it would be much easier to read if there was not a – between every word though, and no I am not language police, just a old person with bad eyesight.

          • Don’t worry, he’s a MORON and only writing what he’s told to write.

          • my neighbor’s mom makes $60 each hour from home, she’s been fired from work for seven months.. the previous month her payment was $21069 only working on the laptop for a couple of hours every day… ➤see➤ this➤ link

          • His keyboard might be messing up on him. I had a friend that had to type that way because her space bar stopped working. lol

          • sandraleesmith46

            No, it wasn’t the mayor, it was an university president and no they weren’t his property to do so.

          • Could you please learn to write!.

          • Get off your high horse, you pedantic idiot — this forum is not Grammar 101.

          • So do you put a hyphen between every word? I can understand misspelled, although with word even that is unnecessary today, but a hyphen? Guess I will just continue being a nitpicky idiot.

          • Yes, you are, with emphasis on “idiot.”

          • Please forgive me, but I did not refer back to William G. Munson’s post, and I thought you were referring to Franie’s text. Now that I read Munson’s entry, I must agree with you 100%, and apologize for my misdirected comment to you.

          • Why is EVERYONE on the LIBERAL side seeing these statues as Racist??? They may have been on the Confederate side that believed in slavery; but at this point in time, they are part of the American history that SHOULD NOT BE FORGOTTEN!!! WE ARE TO LEARN FROM HISTORY SO THE BAD IS NOT REPEATED!!!! Aside from that, no matter what they were fighting for, THEY STAND FOR BRAVE MEN! OUR COUNTRY NEEDS TO BE REMINDED OF THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN WHO FOUGHT TO BUILD THIS COUNTRY; BECAUSE AT THIS POINT IN HISTORY, WE HAVE VERY FEW BRAVE MEN. MOST ARE WEAK COWARDS!!! YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A WHITE SUPREMACIST TO SEE THE VALUE IN OUR STATUES AND MONUMENTS!!

          • If I weren’t a suspecting type individual, my guess as to all this statue crap originates with the very idea that it’s the ANTI-FA (mostly of the illegal Muslim alien type, and the BLM, with whom could also be compromised by jihadist’s incognito), in trying to wipe any and all statues throughout our country to the point that when sharia law incrementally creeps into our lay of the land, those statues are not going to be so visible as to represent a confronting factor to contend with.

          • whats with all hyphens?

          • Are you ok?

          • Will you tear down Lincoln statutes because of his real feelings toward the Black race and we American Indians? He hanged 38 Sioux prisoners in 1862 in Mankato, MN.

            Abraham Lincoln 1859 [Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, Vol. III, PP 399, Basler, ed.]
            “Negro equality, Fudge!! How long in the Government of a God great enough to make and maintain this Universe, shall there continue to be knaves to vend and fools to gulp, so low a piece of demagoguism as this?” —
            The Glittering Illusion: English Sympathy for the Southern Confederacy, Sheldon Vanauken, 1989, Washington, DC: Regnery/Gateway.
            “…So Englishmen saw it. Lincoln’s insincerity was regarded as proven by two things: his earlier denial of any lawful right or wish to free the slaves; and, especially, his not freeing the slaves in ‘loyal’ Kentucky and other United States areas or even in Confederate areas occupied by United States troops, such as New Orleans.”

            The Confederate War, Gary Gallagher, 1998, Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press:
            “The Emancipation Proclamation caused a desertion crisis in the United States Army. At least 200,000 Northern soldiers deserted; another 120,000 evaded conscription; and another 90,000 Northern men fled to Canada to evade the draft, while thousands more hid in the mountains of central Pennsylvania ‘where they lay beyond the easy reach of enrolling officers.'”

            Abraham Lincoln, as cited in “The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln,” Roy Basler, ed. 1953 New Brunswick, N.J.,: Rutgers University Press: “Send them to Liberia, to their own native land. But free them and make them politically and socially our equals? My own feelings will not admit this.”

            Abraham Lincoln, as cited in “Abraham Lincoln: His Speeches and Writings,” Roy Basler, ed. 1946, New York: Da Capo: “Some ten years later, in his December 1, 1862, message to Congress, Lincoln reiterated that ‘I cannot make it better known than it already is, that I strongly favor colonization.”

            “A Constitutional View of the Late War between the States,” Alexander Stephens , 1870, Philadelphia: National Publishing Co.: Asked by Confederate Vice President Alexander Stepehens at the 1865 Hampton Roads “peace” conference what would become of the freedmen without property or education, Lincoln sarcastically said what they should do by reciting words from a popular minstrel song, “root hog, or die”.

            Freedom: A Documentary History of Emancipation,” Ira Berlin, 1987, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press: “In an April 16, 1863, letter to the War Department regarding the fate of ex-slaves should emancipation become a reality, Lincoln wrote, ”They had better be set to digging their sustenance out of the ground.'”

            Lincoln’s response of September 13, 1862, to a call for a General Emancipation:
            “Would my word free the slaves, when I cannot even enforce the Constitution in the rebel States? And what reason is there to think it would have any greater effect upon the slaves than the late law of Congress, which I approved, and which offers protection and freedom to the slaves of rebel masters who come within our lines? Yet I cannot learn that the law has caused a single slave to come over to us.”

          • A lot of time to research all that. Thanks, but I don’t even have the time to read it all… I must go now and return to work.

          • sandraleesmith46

            He also violated our Constitution 6 ways to Sunday.

          • Paul, you’re going to make his little Liberal’s head EXPLODE, LOL! I doubt if he can comprehend your reply, it’ll just confuse him.

          • Then YOU should be held responsible for your fascists actions and treated accordingly! YOU obviously are an ignorant little ass only obeying what someone is letting your band of COWARDS what to do. I’d like to see you do five tours in Afghanistan like my youngest son did but I imagine that you’d fill your panties up on the first day out in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan when the Taliban pin you down on a hillside.

          • Charles Wolfe jr

            One of you revisionist are going to wind up full of lead before it’s over!!!

        • And did you know that there is a law against wearing a mask out in the public? Yep sure is.

        • i agree with you 100%. If you want to protest show your face. Bunch of wussy’s.

      • Way ahead of you. Already sent emails to my Senators and Congressman! This is typical George Sorros play. He wants to clean history out to take over the country. It’s proven he’s backing BLM & Antifa.

        • I remember a made-for-TV mini-series called “Amerika.” The premise was that the Russians had already invaded and took over the USA (the series was before the Berlin Wall fell), and much of the storyline involved how the Russian propaganda machine was redefining American history, e.g., showing how Abraham Lincoln and Lenin were actually allies and “good buddies,” etc. When a people lose their history, they lose everything that made them what they are. As for the blacks (who are mostly descended from slaves), well, would they wish they were back in Africa? They would be living in the current-day nations of Liberia, Nigeria, Cameroon, Gabon, etc. Yep, real Garden of Eden spots. I remember when ebola broke out in that part of the world not too long ago. The Renaissance would have passed them right by, seeing as how it happened in Western Europe.

          • I am totally fed up with the progressive left tactics…that’s right the media is so far left they need to move out of the United States; they would not be missed, take 80% of the Democrats with U. Oh, and take 20 % of the Republicans as well…! It would solve 90% of R problems…I did NOT forget the Muslims that will NOT assimilate or the worthless organizations backed by George Soros like MoveOn. org, Black Lives Matter, Black Panthers, Occupy, CAIR, KKK, toooo many to post!

            Call your Senators, demand action or vote them out of office…..TERM LIMITS!!!

            It goes way back….look it up, see # 15, 21, some samples listed below >

            Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963
            11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.

            15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. They have control over the new Socialist Democratic Party.

            17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

            Remember ***On June 17, 1963 the U.S. Supreme Court concluded that any Bible reciting or prayer, in public schools, was deemed unconstitutional.***They now have in some schools, in America…ISLAM being taught???

            21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
            ABC News executive producer, Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice…
            CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes…
            CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Secretary Tom Nides…
            there is more just look it up!

            26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

            WAKE UP AMERICA….WE HAVE TO CALL/VOTE/ & DEMAND ACTION..START AT YOUR LOCAL OFFICIALS.

          • It ACTUALLY goes back to 1871, see the Act of 1871, look at it closely ( they used tricky wording and all capital letters to differentiate legally). DC was created with European Law as the HQ for the European-owned corp named THE UNITED STATES. ALL the career politicians in DC are vetted and loyal officers of that corporation, NOT our representatives at all. The corporation has carried out the sham of “elections” to make the officers appear to actually be our elected government. The corp has ruled for 146 years now, always with the owner’s agenda, of course, following the agenda of Some of the Royals and some of the European bankers. They are NOT representing the united States of America, never have been. They have ruled us under European Law, NOT the Law of our Land, which is Constitutional Law (laws made for sovereign people to rule themselves through a government structure they own). DC even serves under a dfifferent FLAG than our own, the fringe around it is VERY significant — it is admitted that the “Admiralty Flag” represents Maritime Law, which was originally called High King’s Law and was European. Their rule has required our ignorance and belief that these pretenders are actually our government — but OUR government has never reconvened under our flag and our Constitution with its legal system since 1871. We NEED to reconvene it outside of DC, that 10 mile square patch of land that was set up to be a piece of Europe on our soil, and DC’s purpose has ALWAYS been to steal our Sovereignty and our wealth for its European owners. Ever wonder about all the federal land grabs, taking over so much land in all of our States? Also, since the
            “government” is a corp, the so-called “National Debt” ids actually corporate debt belonging to THE UNITED STATES and its European owners.

          • And just when did you get your master’s degree in Conspiracy Theory?

          • Head on, you don’t need a degree in more sh$$ to see what is going on in our country. Take your blinders off!

          • Ladd, I. Have heard this over 20 Plus years ago and it is playing out right in front of all of us. So sad to see America being destroyed and most people are not even aware it is happening.

          • You are 1 of few people who thoroughly understand who and what we all are and where we come from.. Thank you

          • I realize the danger, accept that — but we MUST learn the truth on a more general basis, only way we can solve it. Not really hard, but it DOES take a general awareness of what was done.

          • Yep, this has Globalism written all over it. The people behind were bent out of shape when “Queen Killary” wasn’t allowed to move her throne into the White House. So they activated the mobs we know as Anitiva. Some say that George Soros has been footing the bill for them along with the Clinton’s (after all they’ve got funds in the so called Clinton Foundation), with Barry Obama directing where the mobs go.

          • sandraleesmith46

            Highly unlikely premise; Lenin would at best have been a LITTLE boy while Lincoln was still alive. But hey, why let history get in the way of scrambling it, huh? Oh and Liberia was made up of former slaves who did return to Africa; but the probability is that those who were brought here as slaves from Africa would NOT have been freed from their slavery YET, had they remained in Africa, since it’s still practiced there as well as western Asia.

        • I agree with you. But let’s look at it this way. They erase all that has to do with slavery then slavery didn’t exist here. SO all their crying and BS that whites owe them is unfounded since there wasn’t any slavery here. They all immigrated here like we all did (except the Native Americans).

          • sandraleesmith46

            Even all the Original peoples did immigrate here, most from Eastern Asia, except the Cherokee; no one has yet determined their point of origin, except that it wasn’t here.

          • Actually WE all originated in Africa. Take the National Geographic DNA Test (it’s a part of their ongoing project of studying where all of us originated and migrated), it’s quite interesting how the peoples first started, separated, and started their treks across the continents.

          • sandraleesmith46

            We did originate from the same ancestors, but not from Africa; from western Asia.

          • Do you mean the ME when you say western asia? The cradle of civilization was in the Middle East, everything else is speculation of where we originated.

          • sandraleesmith46

            Of course that’s the same region; and the “cradle of civilization” is there because that’s where humanity first appeared.

          • I am talking about from the time white man came to the Americas. Everyone immigrated here except the Natives that were already here.

          • sandraleesmith46

            There are no indigenous peoples in America; EVERY person here has ancestors who emigrated from elsewhere, or did so himself. Some got here earlier than others but our original peoples are Asian stock, except the Cherokee. I’m “native” in that not only was I born here, so have my ancestors been for at least 10 generations.

          • Yip, some of my ancestors were standing on the shore watching the poor white man come ashore. My Grandmother was part Iroquois.

            Oh, later on I may have had relation on both side of the Battle of Big Horn. My Grandfather was part Lakota Sioux. In other words I’m a Mutt. Proud American of mixed blood: German, Dutch, Scottish, Irish, English and American Indian.

            Oh, I may have had some relation who fought on both sides of the Civil War. The one on the Southern side wasn’t fighting to keep slaves, he was to poor to own a slave, he was fighting for States Rights. Whereas the one on the Northern side wasn’t fighting because he hated slavery, he was fighting to preserve the United States.

        • The bottom line is these confederate statues are federal property. It is a crime to deface or destroy federal property!!! Why theses people not being arrested for these crimes??
          Somebody needs to grow some balls!!

      • Yes WTF is that mask crap about! Show your face pussies. Anyone with a mask should be hauled off and interrogated as a Terrorist Combatant.

      • “…Town, County, Feds, newspapers, TV/Radio, schools & school boards…”. Who do you think the perps are? Everyone you listed. It’s far beyond complaints and letter writing, it’s time to bust some communist head.

        • I have been banned from the local paper because the liberal editor doesn’t like what I send in for print. Censorship at its worst.

          • Because they SUPPORT what is going on and don’t want to hear a concerned voice. It’s the same way where I live and you don’t dare speak up at a public forum because these mobs are there and will shout you down and sometimes follow you out of the forum to threaten you. It does no good to complain to the city because they say that the other side is “just exercising their rights of free speech”.

          • Could it be that the editor just does not want to contaminate the paper with your shallow, inane drivel?

          • What are you?

      • The goal of these groups is to remove anything that has anything to do with black slavery. 12 of our presidents owned slaves. Slavery was the norm in the world for thousands of years even by my Apache people and other tribes in both North and South America. Here is a list of Presidents who owned Black slaves; George Washington owned slaves while president, Thomas Jefferson owned slaves while president, James Madison owned slaves while president James Monroe owned slaves while president, Andrew Jackson owned slaves while president, Martin Van Buren owned slaves, but not while he was president, William Henry Harrison (Whig) owned slaves, but not while he was president, John Tyler (Whig) owned slaves while president, (James K. Polk (Whig) owned slaves while president, Zachary Taylor was the last president who owned slaves during his presidency, Andrew Johnson owned slaves, but not while he was president and Ulysses S Grant (Republican) owned slaves, but not while he was president. He was the last president who did.

        Whig is the same as Republican. Should all statues of them be torn down? Also since slavery, indenture and killing Native peoples was legal under the United States Flag since its adoption June 14, 1777 should the flag also be removed from the public square? That is where this mess is headed. I started school in 1944 when we were taught almost complete historical facts except for the real causes of the “Civil” War.

        Should we American Indians demand that all statutues and history of Buffalo Soldiers be destroyed because they were expert at killing the Apache and Sioux? Black people should feel lucky, they were allowed to live unlike

        Should NY City be shut down because the Dutch brought 11 Africans to New Amstedam in 1636 and By 1703, more than 42 percent of New York City households held slaves, often as domestic servants and laborers. This was the second-highest proportion of any city in the colonies after Charleston, South Carolina.

        • let’s look at it this way. They erase all that has to do with slavery then slavery didn’t exist here. SO all their crying and BS that whites owe them is unfounded since there wasn’t any slavery here. They all immigrated here like we all did (except the Native Americans).

          • Erase the Moslems, perhaps that WOULD be so.

          • Actually Native American for my Lipan Apache grandfather born in 1860, his son my dad born in 1900 and my mother’s born in 1890 were not alowed to be citizens until the June 1924 Indian Citizenship Act. Most states had laws against American Indians voting until 1948 the year I was 10. Coloado and Utah would not lett Reservation Indians vote until1970 nine years before the Federal government ended the law forbiding Indians from owning long rifles. Notice the laws said Indian not Native American. I have 2 granddaughters whose DNA shows 12 percent Apache but the are not Native Americans as they were born in England where their dad was statiione with the US Air Force. They are Native Britons.

          • I wouldn’t call them native Britons just because they were born there. If I was born in Japan that doesn’t make me Japanese, just a citizen of that country, if my parents were citizens. I would still be Greek with Japanese citizenship. The place where you are born does not make you a native of that land, your heritage or blood is what makes you not where you reside.

          • Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner but I was down in Colorado visiting by son. As one who has read thousands of books and original document since I was 4 years old 75 years ago I have seen many changes in American English but the number1 choice in dictionaries of most word has remained constant ove the years.

            You are confusing ethnicity with birth place. William the Conquer was the grandson of Rollo one of the greatest Viking leaders. France’s King Charles the simple gave Rollo a large part of France today called Normandy (Land of the Northmen), after he had sacked every town and city along the Seine River but spared Paris. Rollo was to prevent other Vikings from sailing up the Seine from the English Channel. His grandson was William the Conqueror who was born in Normandy a part of France so he was a native of France by birth but Danish by ethnicity.
            I am a native of the United States as there is no country of America. My passport says United States Citizen not American Citizen. I am a native of the North American Continent but so is anyone born in Canada or Mexico. Also my ethnicity is Lipan Apache on my father’s side and Mescalero Apache on my Mother’s side and a little bit of Mexican from both sides.

            From Webster dictinary;
            Native [ney-tiv]
            1.
            being the place or environment in which a person was born or a thing came into being:
            one’s native land.
            2.
            belonging to a person by birth or to a thing by nature; inherent:
            native ability; native grace.
            3.
            belonging by birth to a people regarded asindigenous to a certain place:
            Native guides accompanied the expedition through t he rain forest.

          • You’re wrong about your Granddaughters not being Native Americans because they were not born here but in England. They were probably born on an American Base, in an American Hospital, therefore they are in all cases classed as being Native Americans and American Citizens.

          • Thanks for being somewhat perceptive but I am not wrong. My granddaughters were born at John Radcliffe Oxford University Hospital in Oxford, County of Oxfordshire, UK; at least that is what it says on their birth certificates. Unless you have some information I am not aware of. There was no OBGYN clinic at the air base. Also my wife and I were there as AT&T had loaned me to Bell Laboratories as a research and development engineer at Piscataway and Homedale, NJ from June 1977 to December 1981 so it was an easy flight from JFK International to the UK in 1978 and 1980. From NJ back to San Francisco to the engineering technical consultant District for a year then as the Western Region AT&T Spokesman for Divestiture from 1983 until retirement December 31, 1989 at age 51 never having to work again. I entered the United States Air Force June, 1957 and received an honorable discharge in June, 1963. Left an orphanage in WY at the end of the 9th grade with $10 in my pocket. Couldn’t do that today as the Federal Government has put their nose into everything. Also there is no such thing as an American Citizen. My passport lists me as a citizen of the United States.

          Almost; Mary Todd Lincoln had a Negress as a slave in the WH. Andrew Johnson came from poor, share cropper stock early on; I doubt he ever owned a slave in his life. And you’re correct; it was the NORM for millenia and across ALL races and all served as both slaves and masters at various times; none is innocent or blameless. Those whiners should be grateful it was shut down in the US and UK, not demanding “reparations” for something their own ancestors are equally guilty of having done.
          America ISN’T perfect; but she has tried to learn from past errors, until recently…

          • The group that has ALWAYS been behind and promoting slavery are the Moslems. They were the slave traders throughout history, and were the ones that our Marines were created to deal with, as in the Barbary Pirates.

          • sandraleesmith46

            Slavery was ubiquitous in humanity; the Muslims didn’t even exist when Africans enslaved each other, Asians enslaved each other, yet; western Asians were practicing it long before Muhammad came along with his “johnny-come-lately” cult. They simply carried the practice on a lot longer and wider than most groups.

        • The Liberals want to believe that the “North freed the slaves” but in reality people in the North, at the time, were not friendly towards the blacks (or other minorities for that matter). One little item that history loves to overlook is that the North continued well into the 20th century, a form of “slavery” that was as, and in most cases, far more harsh than the South that of Indentured Servitude.

          • If you read the 13th Amendment ratified December 6, 1865 effective January 1, 1866 you will see that in section 1 it addressed both indentured servitude and slavery and established anothe type of slavery. There were almost 6 million white indentured servants in the 1860 census. Also that census shows more free Blacks in the South, almost 300,000, 60,000 in Virginia. It also shows there were more Black property owners in the South. These property owners included several sugar cane plantations owners who also owned Black slaves. Antoine Dubuclet in Louisiana owned a 4,000 acre sugar cane plantation, had 118 Black slaves and was worth almost $49 million. After the war he was broke and was asked by the Carpet Baggers to run for the 1868 Louisiana State Treasurer on the Republican ticket. Since even whites voted for him he won and ran again until 1875. If you Google history of Louisiana State Treasurer you will see him listed as a Black slave owner. 17% of free Blacks owned Black slaves vs. 6 to 9% of white southerners and 2% of white northerners. By the way Antoine was the 5th wealthiest Negro in the 1860 census. Others were much richer.

          • I’m well aware of Mr. Dubuclet. Most people don’t realize that there were indeed a vast number of freed and land owning Blacks in the South just prior to the Civil War. Growing up in Virginia (my ancestors arrived in 1629) in the early 1960’s, I was fortunate to have history teachers who gave us a full accounting of history both good and bad, a different version of history than most schools taught their students.

          • Very few people know about the thousands of Black slave owners. You are among the fortunate few.
            I began 1st grade in 1944 here in Wyoming where we began class by saying “Good Morning Mrs. Sparks”, say the pledge to the United States Flag, Mrs. McCollum would read a verse from Bible over the speaker system and we would sit and Mrs. Sparks would take roll of her 35 students. I was in a Catholic orphanage but they didn’t object the daily readings were not from a Catholic Bible. We learned the good and bad of all our main past presidents and the real cause of the so called Civil War. We were taught of all the good things our country had done for the world and why we were now (1944) at war with Japan and Germany. I am so happy I grew up in the 1940s and 1950s even with the blatant prejudice practiced against poor whites and brown people here in Wyoming. Both poor whites and brown people had to sit on one side of the theater and couldn’t swim in the public pool. We were taught by the nuns at the orphanage that the Federal Constitution allowed people to be prejudice as it said you had a right to freedom of association. But it didn’t allow one to hurt anyone because they didn’t like them. What made it great is that the prejudice was not from the kids so at school it was all one happy group. Being an Indian in a state where people still remembered Indian Raids didn’t make one popular among adults. But they weren’t my friends so I didn’t care but just ignored them and stayed with my life’s plan a nun helped me to form. I left the orphanage on my own at the end of the 9th grade with $10, finished high school on my own, gave the Air Force 6 years, and retired from AT&T in San Francisco, as an upper middle manager, at age 51 and never had to work again. I am now 79 and been married to my wife 79 years. I owe Sister Andrea so much for the plan we made and the encouragement she help me build to stick to that plan. I have not empathy for those who say they don’t have a chance because of their ethnicity.

          • Thanks, Paul. While I’m a “youngster” at 65, I did see some of the school practices & social prejudices that you did, luckily my family mostly worked for the railroad so we were in the lower middle class. My grand dad (he was a conductor) taught me to show respect for the dining car crews and Pullman porters (he hated when someone called them “George”), he said, “theat them as if they are truly Gods of their craft and gentlemen of this world”. He didn’t like segregation and campaigned to allow blacks to advance beyond the jobs they held on the railroad (being a union officer gave him cover to do so). For years I’ve followed that one short lesson in life up until the last few years when we moved to Seattle and some people would actually come out and say that, “you’re wrong because you don’t agree with me”. Those aren’t the Liberals I knew in College during the 1970’s. Of course, my designing bulk handling systems for power plants doesn’t help either, you’d think that I was a drug dealer, or worse, LOL. I’ve been “retired” since 2009 (my business evaporated literally overnight) but my wife is still working (although she sold her forensic engineering company to another firm last year) for another year (she’s an AT&T Corporate retiree, taking a buyout in ’98).

        The masks are already illegal at any kind of assembly. It’snot being enforced.

      • You want to push back, push back on the MEDIA that makes all this possible. Without a corrupt MEDIA, the Lefts propaganda would fall on deaf ears.

        http://www.madashellboycott.com. A different kind of boycott, and one that will work, with your help. We are going after the money that keeps the propaganda lubed.

      • we have all liberals running NY, from the gov on down. senator. Schumer wouldn’t even help his mother, we were flooded out and asked for help he was in DC kissing Reid’s fanny and never answered nor lifted a finger for us to get the filled river cleaned out,

    • Have you ever heard of Treason??? Even General Lee asked his solders not to wear their Uniforms to his funeral as he was not buried in his. It’s time for us as Americans to become the country that many of our citizens died for. Stop this madness and stop killing ourselves stop listening to hate.

      • Patriots do NOT hide in universities or behind masks, carry clubs and wear backpacks full of items intended to hurt and maim other American citizens.

        Anyone or group that does not support and defend our Constitution is treasonous and seditious.

  4. Hard to believe that the University of Texas of all places cows down to these liberal terrorists.

    • By not standing up to the lunatic lefties,Texas obviously isn’t as conservative as it’s touted to be…can’t imagine Texans being scared of the vile and vulgar leftists, A.K.A. democrats/demoNazis.

      • UT does not represent Texas by any means.

        • We have blue areas here, too, …mostly around where colleges are situated.

          • Really sad that we have allowed it to creep into our schools – explains why we are so far behind other countries in intelligence levels!

      • I’m sure Texas is much like other states in that most of the counties would be colored red, with blue spots where the big cities are. Ranchers living on their own property are very self-reliant and probably gun owners. But, I’ve heard (for example) Austin is VERY liberal.

        • Yes, I’ve heard that, too. My state, also, was mostly red with the blue spots being in and around the college towns.

        • Austin and the valley , as well, as, dallas are liberal, and other places. joe straus has to be a liberal by the way he votes and acts. The liberal democrats are everywhere, even in Conservative TEXAS!

      • What ever happened to the American Communist Party? Oh, yeah, it became part of the Democrat Party. I’m not saying that all Democrats are Socialist/Communist but the vast majority of them are pushing the Party line.

    • Yep, Texas is the next California…you folks there in Texas better stand up to these fascists or you will be overrun like we were here in California.
      Better yet, how about we all band together and send them all packing for a safer place!

    • That is why they are nicknamed the “longhorns” LOL

    • Texans are one people… university, school and other educators are another people. We know that and that is why the private schools are growing in number.

    • sandraleesmith46

      It’s in Austin; a “sanctuary city”.

      • Yes, and from what I’ve heard a very liberal city. Thought Gov Abbott was going to put an end to that crap.

        • sandraleesmith46

          He is trying; he’s fighting an uphill battle against Soros money backing Austin, Houston and some others there. And then there’s this other little interruption in his plans been going on the past few days: Harvey….

    • Remember that the University of Texas is located in Austin, a Liberal INFESTED city. That’s why they say, “Keep Austin Weird”.

  5. Great news!! I hope they win the suit. If this issue had involved the removal of a minority dignitary, all hell would’ve broken out!! Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would be leading the march.

  6. ARREST anyone destroying property, no matter whose it is. They should not be allowed to do this. It is not freedom of speech, it is violence and criminal

  7. These are not “Confederate Heritage groups” They are traitors to the United States Constitution and the evolution of the law and they want to make a mockery of the blood shed by American soldiers who died while winning the war in the 1860s. They are trying to glorify those who killed our soldiers.

    • Laws enacted made VETERANS of ALL who fought in the CW, as ALL were AMERICANS!!

    • John Wesley Bletsch

      Good, bad, or otherwise, our history must be preserved. If any have a legitimate gripe it would be descendents of 50 million Native Americans who were wiped out because they stood in the way of the invasion of their ancestral lands. History remains a reminder of the appaling evil one people can perpetrate upon another, but it also serves as a constant reminder of where we must never go again. The supporters of removal of our history have only one goal and that is to destroy America’s foundational guidance our history provides. A nation w/o its history ceases to exist and that is the UN Globalist agenda for the world. That is where our battle lies, with all who would subjugate and enslave us all.

      • I agree about the first Americans but your love for the traitors is badly displaced

        • None of the Confederate leaders were adjudicated traitors and thus they are not traitors. Why? Because the “Union” was scared to death that the South would rise up and a 2nd Civil War would begin again. Sorry, that makes you ignorant of the facts. They were not traitors. The Union was doing all the same atrocities to the South that the American revolutionaries had done to them. You are wrong. They had ever right to rebel and you just won’t admit it. Do your homework past what your 4th grade teacher told you.

    • ScrewU snowflake.

    • Anyone that is a liberal/democrat should be put into that category….time to wipe them from history too.

    • You are ignorant of the facts.

  8. It comes as no surprise that those memorials were erected during a sad period in American history when racism was at its zenith and lynchings of blacks were all too common. The great majority of monuments to Confederate “heroes” were erected during this period. There is nothing heroic about treason! There is nothing patriotic about a rebellion premised on the heinous notion that one human being has a right to own another human being as property!

    • Bull$hit. History is history. Who the eff “owned” the Israelites who built the Pyramids? UMMM….. Africans (blacks) in Egypt. Are we taking them down? When my grandparents came here they were not slave owners either so WTF is with trying to erase the past? Won’t fix the welfare babies will it? Free phones, free food, free medical care? Up ur azz I don’t owe them $$$hit.

      • Good luck trying to educate that a–hole!!! And NONE of my ancestors owned slaves so I donna owe them even a tiny pile of S H I T !!

      • Nope, not bullshit. The proliferation of Confederate memorials coincided very closely with the emergence and expansion of Jim Crowism in the South. Here is all the proof you need:

        https://www.splcenter.org/sites/default/files/whoseheritage_splc.pdf

        “Many memorials were dedicated in the early 20th century, decades after the Civil War. Research by the Southern Poverty Law Center concluded that such monument building was part of widespread campaigns to promote and justify Jim Crow laws in the South.[1] The year 1911 saw the largest number constructed, which was the year of the semi-centennial of the Civil War. Memorials were dedicated on public spaces either at public expense or funded by private organizations and donors. Numerous private memorials were also dedicated. Art historians Cynthia Mills and Pamela Simpson asserted in their critical volume Monuments to the Lost Cause that the majority of Confederate monuments, of the type they define, were “commissioned by white women, in hope of preserving a positive vision of antebellum life.”

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_monuments_and_memorials_of_the_Confederate_States_of_America

        WHOSE “heritage”??

        https://www.splcenter.org/sites/default/files/whoseheritage_splc.pdf

        There is nothing noble about “honoring” those treasonous states and persons who abandoned their nation to defend the alleged right of one human being to own other human beings as property.

        Your desperate allusion to ancient Egyptian practices is irrelevant and ludicrous. DNA analysis of tissue from Egyptian mummies proves that ancient Egyptians were related to peoples of the Middle East and NOT to Negroid stocks of Central Africa:

        https://www.nature.com/news/mummy-dna-unravels-ancient-egyptians-ancestry-1.22069

    • Tell that to the Moslems, who were the purveyors of slavery throughout ALL of history since Biblical times. Originally they were the Canaanites who were thrown out of Judea, that is why they hate the Jews so much, in fact.

    • To headuptheirbutt: Ha! Dream on “person” you may think you’re safe from prosecution but you’ll see soon enough….the Dems(Dumbs) chicanery will backfire on them because all arrogant egotistical hang themselves…I guarantee you’re being investigated

  9. All Confederate soldiers are, by law, American veterans.

  10. Go for it, Sons of Confederate Veterans!!! Time someone stood up to these so-called ‘educators’!!

  11. Go get them Sons of Confederate Veterans!! I’m from the north but live in the South now and this is history and not anything that effects these ignorant SNOWFLAKES !!! aid like to erase the last eight years that Odummer.

  12. Those wanting to take down the monuments should be ashamed of themselves. There are plenty of real people out there suffering, and all they can think of are their little feelings and dreams of being viewed as bold activists. Instead, they underline just how marginal and useless they are. Sad!

  14. Hope they prevail over that leftist dirtpile!

  15. Joe McCarthy was right when he said academia was rife with Marxist and other who do not have America’s best interests at heart. What is occurring today has been decades in the making and it is Socialists in our nation attempting to destroy our history, our economy, and our traditions. They are not just in academia, they are in the media, the business world and even the halls of Congress. The destruction of monuments is not just about the Confederacy, they want to go after the founders monuments that should tell everyone this is about more than the tired old slavery issue, which except for a number of race hustlers like Al and Jesse is only kept alive by the left to keep a wedge driven between the races. Today education beyond high school has become a drain on the parents and students pocket books, a prolonging of adolescence, and Marxist indoctrination. Trade School might be a better investment.

    • They teach nothing current and actually relevant anyway, and NEVER teach one how to think for one’s self, which was supposed to be the purpose of education in the first place. All we learn in Life is what we wanted and needed to learn, and we did it ourselves. Rightly or wrongly, we did the best we could, and degrees from school are just false documents in actuality. All academics are fools, you see that quickly if you really LOOK at them and see how limited they are, to some few “facts” that they memorize and think define them as geniuses. Those who are aware just open their eyes and LOOK at what is around, they don’t close off and be certain that they are “smart” as does the academic. If your eyes stay open you will run CIRCLES around all of those academics, as they don’t see YOU or anything else but what they think is around them from their tightly held “knowledge”. Trade school IS more honest, at least they show you the current and applicable data. STILL it is all up to you. You have NOTHING that you did not seek out for yourself. That is true of us all.

  16. A country that destroys it history will cease to be a country! This PC is out of control. This is our history, American history and world history, we have come so far from that period of time. Now we decide to put our heads in the sand and pretend this never happened? This isn’t about racism anymore, this is hatred being jammed down the throats of America with contempt. Removing statues that represents a sad period in our country’s history is ludicrous. They are great reminders of how far we have come as a nation.

    • Of course. The Communist notion is behind the UN programs to end all Sovereignty and all countries are to become areas under the UN auspices. Totally idiotic and impossible, they need to be thrown out of this country and we stop supporting anything they do or want. One proviso: first collect all the parking and traffic tickets that these bozos think they can ignore in their delusions of superiority.

  17. The problem is, hate has replaced American history…Robert E Lee was married to George Washington’s granddaughter. He worked with Grant during the Mexican-American war and became a decorated war hero defending this country. He believed slavery was a great evil and his wife broke the law by teaching slaves to read and write. After the civil war he worked with Andrew Johnson’s program of reconstruction. He became very popular with the northern states and the Barracks at West Point were named in his honor in 1962. He was a great man who served this country his entire life in some form or other. His memorial is now being called a blight. No American military veteran should be treated as such. People keep yelling, “You can’t change history.” Sadly you can. This is no better than book-burning. ISIS also tried rewriting history by destroying historical artifacts. Is that really who we want to emulate? History will not destroy this country…hate will!!

    • The Communist notion is to eradicate all culture and religion and replace it with Communism. Funny that that entire program has ALWAYS failed, and isn’t it the definition of insanity, to believe that if you do the same thing long enough you will get a different result? They are delusional.

  18. CAIR supports removal of monuments. Study how Muslims and Nazi’s took over cultures and entire nations: by removing statues, memorials, re-writing history so the NEXT GENERATION lacked reasons to fight a cultural takeover from WITHIN. Thisis a TACTIC, a STRATEGY that has worked for since ISLAM began. ISLAM jointed with NAZI’s in World War II to murder Jews. Check it out. But, the process started with removal of history, dehumanization, removal of weapons…all by LIES, FALSE PROPOGRANDA, APPEALS TO A COMMON GOOD… then when the Jews were too weak and lacked the means or tools to fight back –THEN, AND ONLY THEN did the murders begin. History does not describe how the PROCESS BEGAN. But Muslim and NAZI strategists know the tactics well, try to keep them secret and are APPLYING THEM NOW IN THE USA. The USA defeated the NAZIs, but now is in a battle with the ISLAMIC CIVILIZATION to take control of Europe and the USA. Learn the ISLAMIC METHODS for CONQUERING A NATION. The physical murder aspect is the LAST STEP — not the first step. The FIRST step begins with LIES, IMMIGRATION and INSISTENCE on small legal changes in the victim culture. We are experiencing that process now. The time to stop an ISLAMIC conquest of the USA is in the beginning. Just look at what OBAMA did with 5 Islamic prayer rooms in the White House, and numerous Islamic officials in the CIA, and then there is HILLARY with Huma and her family, and DEBBIE WASSERMAN with her Pakistani criminal buddies. GET THE PICTURE? Sept of 2011 was just the start. OBAMA and HILLARY continued the process. TRUMP was elected to STOP the process, and is being fought by traitors within and without our government.

    • Realize that our government in DC is really NOT our government anyway, but officers of THE UNITED STATES, the European-owned corporation that had DC created and set up as their HQ in the Act of 1871. Since 21FEB1871 that corp has been posing as our government, and its officers are “elected” so that we think they are our representatives. All the politicians who fail and leave DC immediately are the ones who had ideals and did not want to be loyal to the corporation. All those who are vetted and supported by the corp are NOT our representatives. DC does not even serve under our flag. The “Admiralty” flag, with the fringe around it, they freely admit represents Maritime Law. Did you know that it was originally called High King’s Law? And did you get that we have been ruled under that European :Law ever since THE UNITED STATES took over in 1871? It is easy enough to see if you just LOOK at the Act of 1871, but they have ruled us thru our ignorance for 146 years. They have no legality, no legitimacy and no jurisdiction beyond the DC borders — the ONLY thing they have is that we stay ignorant of who and what they are. DC is the swamp — and every career politician there are the officers of THE UNITED STATES, Trump is the FIRST president since 1871 who actually represents We the People — but we NEED to reconvene our true government under our own flag and our own Constitution, under that legal system set out in it, which is the Law of our Land. We MUST reconvene outside of DC, as DC was created to be a little piece of Europe on our soil, operating with European Law and not ours. Everything they did and “passed” since 1871 is actually invalid, as they are NOT the united States, but instead of a corporation called THE UNITED STATES. Tricky legal aspects with careful wording and all capital letters in order to create a different word legally, that is so “obviously” the word we think it is. Very little is as it seems, we listened to a lot of liars for a lot of years.

      • Yep. You are correct. I know two former government agencies who fought this in court and WON, but then they were financially destroyed by the IRS, and suffered assassination attempts.. This is powerful information, but would require millions and a gutsy attorney. Maybe Larry Klayman would go after this…. but basically, the Amrican people need YEARS worth of education. You state everything very well. I think some examples would help. For example, what power does a ship captain have when his ship crosses a line 12 miles from shore? Compared to when the ship is in the docks. Did you know the Masons, and especially the Knights Templar wear uniforms based on the navy Admirals? They know all about Admiralty Law. Also, te reason that the NAVY has the most advanced space program and the most advanced intelligence system is they were the FIRST intelligence system and infiltrated all other agencies in our government. They contorl everything — even NSA, CIA, and all the agencies. That’s why ADMIRALS show up and take command like when Kennedy was assassinated, or in any real military emergency. Get it? The Navy is based on Admiralty Law. The CIA operates outside the boundaries of the USA and does not FOLLOW the constitution, and their attitude that they are NOT UNDER THE CONSTITUTION has infected the whole system since BUSH, head of CIA, became President. So, how to get the People back in control of their nation? That is the big question the USA is facing, and the battle that TRUMP is fighting. Keep telling the story, but with many different stories and examples. SHIP CAPTAINS and RETIRED ADMIRALS may be willing to tell stories. Keep it going.

    • Yep, beware that “FALSE PROPOGRANDA, whatever THAT is! Good grief, Frazier, use spell check or get a dictionary!

  19. My guess is they want a place for new civil war monuments. At the rate they are going it should start any time now.
    Lock and load….

  20. Food for thought! Why was Charlottesville the first time in many many years that we’ve been heard the word about the KKK, or the Nazis and white supremacist. I’ll tell you why it was a planned event with staged actors in there with Nazi and KKK uniform to infiltrate the group who are marching against removing the statues. They were there for the purpose of creating havoc and for the meeting to capture it on film along with the people who were there defending their self against ANTIFIA, Black lives matter and the black communist nationalist. This is the group has been attacking conservatives for the last at least year and I don’t see anybody on the left condemning it as a matter fact they encourage it and I can say this because Nancy Pelot see did that last week , By lying on the radio trying to Treo group of Suggs to go after a prayer vigil in San Francisco stating to those anarchist of hers that this was white supremacist just chilling u trio group of Suggs to go after a prayer vigil in San Francisco stating to those anarchy is the verse that this was white supremacist this ginning up her trio group to commit acts of violence against these people on the right. They canceled but the people who met at Berkeley were beaten severely while the cops stood there and watched not one anarchist was arrested. I believe it’s time for the right to rise up and we need to start going after these mayors and these chiefs to police, who tell the police to stand down. I guarantee you if that was the right beating the left there will be the National Guard in there. The war has begun decide if you want this country to survive or not if you want your children to live free or you want to be oppressed, you cannot stand by and watch the left continue to beat people it must be retaliation for their acts of violence against the right.

  21. It’s about time that The Sons of Confederate Veterans stood up to these liberals that want to erase history.

    • The history that needs to be erased is the bogus history in the form of many of the inscriptions on Confederate memorials that connote nobility on a rebellious and traitorous enterprise!

      • Name one that was tried for treason. You can’t. You’ve been taught a Northern revised view of the war or not taught at all !

  22. SUE – do more than just sue – especially since the courts are packed with liberals…..

    • unpack the courts, get rid of these failures of “judges”, who cannot qualify for their position and need to be impeached and dismissed for bad service..

  23. Perhaps, with a president in the White House who actually IS willing to
    go there, things will start to turn around. But until we see some proof
    of that, we’re not holding our breath.

    Unfortunately with the same old establishment no balls gop the President gets no support. We need to vote out establishment politicians on both sides.They are only looking out for themselves.

    The dems/left encourage the chaos and the gop and rino’s just watch like trained puppies.

  24. That would be awesome if it could be overturned. Teach these liberals a lesson on the law.

  25. No one has the exclusive right to order historical monuments removed just because they are the top person at a university. This Obama style pen in hand LEFTIST University of Texas President Greg Fenves breaks the law just like Obama did for 8 years. Thank God President TRUMP is reversing ALL of Obama’s scams and destroying his USURPED LEGACY, that damn KENYAN! President TRUMP will order all Historical Monuments returned and prosecute any who deface or destroy these American Relics! LEFTIST need to go back in their dark he’ll holes and stop destroying our American Heritage!

    • Trump has no such broad authority as you ignorantly assume he does. Wish away all you want, but Trump can not order the President of the U. of Texas to return monuments. Get real!

      • Interesting that you say Trump has NO broad authority to do what Obama freely did while you LIBERALS kissed his ass all the way! This U of T President IGNORED the guidelines governing the erecting of the statues and the oversight expected after the donors decease. He is usurping some authority NOT his own just like Obama USURPED the office of the President while you LEFT LEANING LIBERALS never vetted his FRAUDULENT birth certificate and allowed him to secure/hide from public eyes ALL of his Foreign Student Paperwork which would have DISQUALIFIED the jerk! You call me IGNORANT when it was you LIBERALS who ignored the truth about the KENYAN and then attacked everyone who brought up the possibility by calling us RACISTS because he was YOUR FIRST BLACK President NOT the conservative’s bastard president! YOU IGNORANT FOOLS! He really DUPED his own party while looking down on the Conservatives. You put him in office and IGNORANTLY gave him a second term! What FOOLS!

  26. Great that people are beginning to fight back.

  27. I agree UT authorities are spineless nitwits sucking up to liberal bigots! Politically correct is not something that people of character should be trying to espouse! What a bunch of pigs!

  28. Stephen Paul Lawrenz

    When we start removing statues and monuments of people who supported abortion when this country finally returns to sanity and realizes that the murder of innocent children is just as bad as slavery ever could have been the circle will be complete. I have learned that what goes around comes around because God is in control. 😉

  29. What the hell gives the Ulta liberal college people the right to take down anything that was donated by people 100 yrs ago? Screw this bunch of freaks an commies open season on these bastards and put a perminate stop to them

  30. Hey my congresswoman went to Harvard with Michelle so you might think she drank the Barry mix of cool-aid and wants all vestiges of our past history erased. Think those Progressives, Lenin, Mao and Hitler did that to events of their past.

  31. The Confederate Heritage Group should sue the University Of Texas for millions of dollars. The University is infested with bunch of liberal Demorats who make millions of dollars for their salaries from the students tuition as well as brainwashing the students. If I were the parents of the kids I would boycott the University.

  32. Thank you for the suit, but in a way its not necessary if the government would infore the LAW passed in1954 making All confederate soldier’s. Cemitarys and monuments U.S. veterans and protected by Federal law

    • Good information. Would you send a note or make a call to the CHG to let them know the exact law sections? Then let the Trump Adm know what you know so they can take it from there.

  33. Sue them for everything you can, empty their wallets !!

  34. I hope this group takes the “good” citizens of the State of Texas to the cleaners. Unfortunately it cannot just be the people that live in Austin.

  35. If these liberal idiots were truly taught their country’s history, they would understand why these monuments were put up in the first place. When the Civil War ended, President Lincoln did not want the south to feel like a conquered nation. He understood this was a fight between brothers of the same nation over federalism vs. States Rights. Slavery was the very real human embodiment of the clash between Federalism and States Rights. Families were split apart over this war and Lincoln did not want “retribution”; he wanted healing. There was to be no punishment for Southern soldiers, no punishment for Southern States. He saw this war as a huge family disagreement that was now over and it was time to be one family again. That is why there are monuments to both sides of this battle. It isn’t about shoving a reminder of slavery in every blacks face; it is about acknowledging the sacrifices both sides made in the war. And what most liberals would like to “forget” was that not all southern whites owned slaves and not all slave owners were white. Free blacks owned slaves we well. So todays uneducated people can scream “racism” and try to take down historical monuments. But is they really want to eliminate all hints of racism, they would have to get rid of the Democrat Party. They were the carpetbaggers, the KKK members, the segregationists and the enforcers of the Jim Crow laws.

  36. Its about damned time! It is a matter of cultural “life and death”… OURS!

  37. keep the statues, they are history not hate!!!!! Throw the president of the university out!

  38. Finally, Snowflakes-in-Training who “lobotomized” UT are getting push-back and this should be easily proven in a court of law; i.e., the right for the monument to remain in place.

  39. These NIGGERS want you to take down the confederate statues, these NIGGERS even want you take down George Washington and Christopher Columbus, they better not even say Abraham Lincoln he freed all you NIGGERS!!! You could put the trouble maker NIGGERS statues like MLK, Malcom X Mandella. If i was driving a bus in the sixties NO NIGGERS would of rode on my bus.

  40. I am an attny of 54 years; if they need pro bono help, call or Email me. I want to pitch in. Each state should establish a legal team of pro boners to jump on the states and cities doing these desecration

  41. We all know what has to be done to stop this madness! Arrests should have been made at the very beginning! When private property is destroyed by thugs arrests should have been made but because they weren’t these thugs have been emboldened! It’s against the law to wear these masks so why aren’t these thugs arrested? The answer is easy. Our politicians want chaos they want a reason to blame our President for all of it. This is the work of Soros and state politicians! “Some of you say: well call and write your politicians.” That’s all well and good if you believe the system works. The problem is the system doesn’t work! Liberals and some rino republicans want this and even encourage it. Don’t look now but we are in a Civil war and if we don’t start fighting back our country is lost. I’m in a state that you can’t carry a gun. But if my life is threatened someone’s going to die. If it’s me? I won’t be alone. Stand up for your country! Don’t look for any politicians to help.

    • ALL the career politicians are enemies to the united States and us. They ALL need to be replaced and we need to reconvene our true government again, it has not reconvened since 1871 when THE UNITED STATES, the European corp that DC was set up for took over 146 years ago. The new convened government must be new people and NOT in DC, which was set up to be a small bit of Europe on our soil (see Act of 1871, look at it closely, see use of trick wording and all capitals to create a separate legal entity to pretend it is US.

    • What state might that be? If you are conservative come on over to Arizona we have always carried here. Since a few years ago we also carry concealed without a permit.

      • I’m from looney CA. Unfortunately! God willing not for long. I’m afraid I don’t like the desert. I’ve shown horses in your state a few times but couldn’t live there. You know, I’m almost afraid to tell people where I’m from. 😉

        • Everything in Arizona is not dessert. Just around the Phoenix valley and Tucson areas. Much of the rest of the state is not dessert at all. As a matter of fact one of the largest if not the largest ponderosa pine forest in N America is in Arizona. However, I agree California is run by lunatics. I wish more people thought the way you do about the dessert. It seems everybody and his brother is moving here. 🙂

          • Just pray that everyone moving there isn’t the Commies from CA. The Commies are spreading out and they will be trying to turn your state into another Ca.
            I understand that not all Arizona is Dessert. I guess what I should have said is my taste leans to a cooler climate.

          • We got a lot of those California commies here in Tucson. To the point it is purple and not red like most of the rest of the state.

            You should check out Flagstaff it is very cool.

          • That’s what ticks me off. These Commies give the rest of us a bad name and no one wants us in their state. I’m going to start lying! 😉 I’ll check out Flagstaff, thank you.

          • Williams is just west of Flagstaff if you like small towns it is very nice. Big Ponderosa Pine country.

          • It sounds lovely! I’ll check it out. What about the homes in that area? Are they nice or would one have to build? I don’t mind if a home is a bit older because I can easily remodel but I don’t want to have to build.

          • I do not know much about real estate up there. You can check with the Chamber of Commerce.

          • I’ll have my realtor check into it. I have a lot of friends in Arizona so it’s another option. I would have to wait for McShame to die first.

  42. Doesn’t anyone realize the operating philosophy of these lunatics?

    Our rights end with their emotions.

    • It is YOU and your ilk who are blinded by emotion and incapable of accepting the truth of history. The Lost Cause of the Confederacy was all about S L A V E R Y!

      • If my memory serves me properly. It was considered at the time economic. Slavery was the largest business in the south just ahead of cotton. The two went hand an hand. Many in the south feared losing everything if they lost slavery. For the most part their fears were justified at the time. Then along came Eli Whitney.

        • Whether or not you intended it, your reply simply confirms my original proposition, namely that secession and the war that followed were driven by the desire of slaveholders to continue their coveted Southern way of life.

          • I was neither agreeing or disagreeing with you I was stating a fact as I recall it. I think I was clear about that. If it agreed with you point of view that is fine.

            Why are you always on defense? There is little wonder you have so many comments and 0 votes!

          • I do not come to this ultra-right wing forum to get votes. Why should I expect to get votes from the legions of extremist blithering conservatives who make up by far the majority of participants. Their chief stock in trade is the profane insult, often spiced with juvenile patty talk. For some topics, I find myself the only dissenting view. Let the dingbats vote for each other; I have no need for their votes!

          • Doubtful if anyone comes here or to any site to get votes. However, they do come to these sites to voice an opinion. The up votes only show if it is an acceptable opinion. The lack of votes may therefore, show the unacceptably of that opinion. Have a nice day it you can!

  43. Required reading for all southern apologists who continue to insist that the Civil War was only about “states’ rights.” States’ rights? YES, BUT ONLY IF YOU MEAN THE ALLEGED RIGHTS OF STATES TO LEGALIZE THE “RIGHT” OF ONE HUMAN BEING TO OWN ANOTHER AS PROPERTY

    For any who still might be unconvinced: https://www.civilwar.org/…/declaration-causes-seceding-stat…

  44. If one erases history one is bound to repeat it! The leftist crybabies are only looking at what theybelieve was the cause of the war of northern aggression. the main reason the war started was the South’s right to defend their property, and states rights, among other things.
    Monuments teach history, and they give us the opportunity to explain what and why it was placed there in the first place.

  45. mistyl@windstream.net

    I hope they win. No one has the right to erase our Southern History.

    • No one has the right to erase either the north or south’s historic facts. No one “can” erase history. They can try to hide historic fact by changing the history books and tearing down monuments but actual erasing it is impossible. There is always a reason for such actions. It is never good.
      We are quickly coming to realize powerful and violence push back may be just around the corner if these actions persist.

  46. There were two sides fighting when our Country got its freedom. As per history, both sides should be represented by statues. Any other arrangement should not be acceptable to any University or organization in the U.S….period.

    FYI: if you will investigate the source.of the removal demands, more than likely it is a finger of the Soros hand which incompasses many privately funded organizations bent on destroying our Country. Soros is behind these attacks on our history and foundations. He wants to fragment our Country so that it collapses economically.

    So if you are angry — be angry at the right person – George Soros! He is the instigator and funder of all acts anti-American. Know this! Taste the bitter taste in your mouth of betrayal by an evil man who wants America dead and destroyed. Don’t get mad at the University — they’ve been played by Soros lackeys. They’ve been used to create chaos from our people by doing the unthinkable — removing our Historical Statues. Of course Patriots are going to be angry!!! Everything is moving along just as Soros planned.

    Contact President Trump and demand George Soros be deported/banned from America!! Kick Soros out of the U.S. so the other countries with a bounty on his head can grab him and execute the snake. Believe me, he walks over dead people and his time is coming fast. Let another country do the dirty work and rid the world of the most evil man since Hitler! Demand he be deported now!

  47. • CONGRESSIONAL ACT of 9 March 1906 ~ We Honor Our Fallen Ancestors
    (P.L. 38, 59th Congress, Chap. 631-34 Stat. 56)

    This act authorized the furnishing of headstones for the graves of Confederates who died, primarily in Union prison camps and were buried in Federal cemeteries. Remarks: This act formally reaffirmed Confederate soldiers as military combatants with legal standing. It granted recognition to deceased Confederate soldiers commensurate with the status of deceased Union soldiers.

  48. • U.S. PUBLIC LAW 810, Approved by 17th Congress 26 February 1929
    (45 Stat 1307 – Currently on the books as 38 U.S. Code, Sec. 2306)

    This law, passed by the U.S. Congress, authorized the “Secretary of War to erect headstones over the graves of soldiers who served in the Confederate Army and to direct him to preserve in the records of the War Department the names and places of burial of all soldiers for whom such headstones shall have been erected.”

    Remarks: This act broadened the scope of recognition further for all Confederate soldiers to receive burial benefits equivalent to Union soldiers. It authorized the use of U.S. government (public) funds to mark Confederate graves and record their locations.

  49. • U.S. PUBLIC LAW 85-425: Sec. 410 Approved 23 May 1958
    Confederate Iron Cross (US Statutes at Large Volume 72, Part 1, Page 133-134)

    The Administrator shall pay to each person who served in the military or naval forces of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War a monthly pension in the same amounts and subject to the same conditions as would have been applicable to such person under the laws in effect on December 31, 1957, if his service in such forces had been service in the military or naval forces of the United States.

    Remarks: While this was only a gesture since the last Confederate veteran died in 1958, it is meaningful in that only fifty-seven years ago, the Congress of the United States saw fit to consider Confederate soldiers as equivalent to U.S. soldiers for service benefits. This final act of reconciliation was made almost one hundred years after the beginning of the war and was meant as symbolism more than substantive reward.

    Additional Note of Critical History: Under current U.S. Federal Code, Confederate Veterans are equivalent to Union Veterans.

    This reconciliation period[*] led up to the Congressional Act of 9 March 1906, U.S. Public Law 810 Approved by 17th Congress 26 February 1929, and the final crown of reconciliation with U.S. Public Law 85-425: Sec. 410 Approved 23 May 1958. [*known as The Grand Bargain]

  50. • By the President of the United States of America ~ A PROCLAMATION

    “The years 1961 to 1965 will mark the one-hundredth anniversary of the American Civil War…”

    “…By a joint resolution approved on September 7, 1957 (71 Stat. 626), the Congress established the Civil War Centennial Commission to prepare plans and programs for the nationwide observances of the one-hundredth anniversary of the Civil War, and requested the President to issue proclamations inviting the people of the United States to participate in those observances.”

    “Now, Therefore, I, Dwight D. Eisenhower, President of the United States of America, do hereby invite all of the people of our country to take a direct and active part in the Centennial of the Civil War…”

    “…to plan and carry out their own appropriate Centennial observances during the years 1961 to 1965; all to the end of enriching our knowledge and appreciation of this momentous chapter in our Nation’s history and of making this memorable period truly a Centennial for all Americans.”

    “In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States of America to be affixed.”

    “DONE at the City of Washington this sixth day of December in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and sixty, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and eighty-fifth.”

  52. Shut these slop holes out of existence!

  53. A school in my hometown of Rocklin California is teaching Kindergarten age children “that they can become a man if theyre a woman” and vice versa. Some of the parents complained because they were not notified. The schools response, “we don’t have to tell you”. The state has taken their rights as parents away and decided to teach their babies about TRANSGENDERISM AND THAT ITS COOL AND NORMAL! Does anybody else feel their blood boil when they hear this? Another school in the same county sent out Dress Code rules for the new Highschool year. On that list of banned attire “Gang related clothes, drug related clothes and THE AMERICAN FLAG!” WTF! I FEEL LIKE I’M IN AN EPISODE OF THE TWILIGHT ZONE!

  54. and about the removal of statues …what next? Raids on antique shops for illegal contraband? Fucking stupid!

  55. get rid of all Dodge Chargers because of the Dukes of Hazzard? this is insanity

  56. And who the hell gave the wand to the liberals so that THEY get to decide what “hate speech” is? should have given them the Jacket and the Padded Room instead.

  57. The truth hurts and it is going to hurt regardless of what symbols of it are removed. What would be the logic or benefit of the media ceasing to broadcast or publish the truth of crime, for example? Politicians are pandering to utter stupidity. It needs to stop.

  58. Won’t get printed in my local paper.

  59. These idiots are following in the steps of ISIS by removing any and all reminders of our past be it good or bad. ISIS = If it does fit with the way we believe it goes; Uneducated Left/Slaves = If it doesn’t fit with the way we’re told to believe it must go. I hate slavery, which is still happening, as much as anybody but there were a lot of WHITES that died on both sides that didn’t like slavery.

  60. Can someone start a petition?! This is not just against “white people”. It is against the true American people. These professors, liberals, communists, Nazis have a plan to destroy American values, by destroying the history, along with the transgender issue running rampantly in the school system. This is very obvious. God’s wrath will fall upon this university and the entire staff. Pity the gentleman who paid for these statues in such unbelievable faith and trust that colleges improve the individual.

  61. I hope they win and break the University Bank

  62. I’m all for suing the racist left wing bigots. But if some left wing judge is involved we all know which way the wind will blow on this. The left hates white people, especially white southerners whose ancestors fought for the South’s independence and they’ll rule in favor of the left wing university racists no matter what.

  63. As they should.

  64. sue them privately since they did this on their own

  65. CONFEDERATE MONUMENTS ARE N O T “AMERICAN HISTORY”!!D O N ” T

    Any Monumments to 9-11 are dedicated to the Thousands of AMERICANS who perished in the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and in the fields of Pennsylvania…..

    There are NO Monuments to the Terrorists who flew the planes into crowded American structures; and in the same way there are NO Monuments to the Japanese who attacked Pearl Harbor in December of 1941!

    THOSE FOLKS WERE N O T AMERICANS — THEY WERE AMERICA’S DEADLY ENEMIES….

    The Confederates were N O T Americans either — They were (and are) “Extreme Christian Terrorists” WHO ATTACKED AMERICA for it’s principals of Justice and Equality; just like the “Extreme Muslim Terrorrists” who ATTACKED AMERICA on 9-11 for EXACTLY the same reason — Our American Principals of Justice and Equality!
