After the Monuments: Louisiana Caving in Defense of Confederate Heritage
Even though a bill to defend Louisiana’s Confederate heritage had passed the State’s Legislature in mid-May by a margin of over 2-to-1, it has not been advanced by the Senate, and the governor has been heard whining about it. The Associated Press has reported that “Gov. John Bel Edwards derided a bill that could protect Confederate monuments, calling the proposal impractical and unnecessarily divisive on Tuesday, a day after black lawmakers stormed off the Louisiana House floor in protest over a Republican's plan.”
The New Orleans Times-Picayune is already celebrating the demise of the bill. Apparently the supposedly Republican Senate President John Alario has sent the bill to the Senate’s Government Affairs Committee, which is chaired by a Democrat from New Orleans, and where it does not stand a chance in hell for advancement. A similar bill died in committee last year, following the same exact process, and therefore Alario knows what he is doing. So it is politics as usual in New Orleans. Alario, who was once a Democrat, is also from New Orleans and seems to be about as Southern at heart as a carpet-bagging New York kebab vendor.
Speaking of New York, The Times-Picayuneitself is owned by the New York based Advance Publications, Inc., a company privately held by descendants of the Jewish media billionaire S. I. Newhouse. Since New Orleans Planning Commission member Walter Isaacson also worked in New York for many years, and since it has been demonstrated that many of the coordinators of the Take ‘Em Down Nola campaign were also from New York, it seems that the Jews of Wall Street may as well be running the entire city.
At least Louisana’s Lieutenant Governor seems to have exhibited himself to be braver than the man at the top. The Louisiana Radio Network has reported that he is actually trying to ensure that the monuments are exhibited elsewhere. His efforts have not yet brought fruit, however, as a headline reads: “Future of confederate monuments unclear after meeting between Mayor Landrieu and Lt. Gov. Nungesser.” Landrieu has made it clear in his actions that he would toss them into a trash heap if he could. On May 17th, WGNO news reported that the P.G.T. Beauregard monuments and pieces of some of the others were indeede spotted sitting amidst refuse in a lot owned by the city.
Nungesser was quoted as having said that “We’ve got so many historical sites, forts, and places around Louisiana that would love to have these displayed to teach people about the history of that era,” and that “it’s a sad day for Louisiana because we didn’t need this right now.” Then he appropriately added that “We should be worried about fixing our streets, fixing the crime problem, educating our children. We’ve got other issues in Louisiana. This didn’t need to happen,” Nungesser said.
It is our own opinion that these are problems which Landrieu cannot fix, so instead he ingratiates those who are responsible for creating them by eradicating White Southern history. The Lieutenant Governor also rather boldly – and correctly – lamented that “They will not rest until every name is changed that had anything to do with slavery. So I guess they’ll be going after the Washington Monument and tearing down the White House because it was built with slaves”.
In the meantime, while the Louisiana governor and the politicians in New Orleans have sold out to Jewish and Negro interests and have removed four culturally valuable Confederate monuments from their city, another politician across the border in Mississippi legislator has also spoken his mind. The Louisiana Radio Network has reported that one "Mississippi lawmaker says Louisiana leaders should be lynched after monuments removed." State representative Karl Oliver is said to have made the statement in a Facebook post that has since been deleted, also complaining that the monuments were removed in a “Nazi-ish fashion.” While Oliver was later embarrassed into retracting the remarks, we nevertheless commend the spirit which he initially displayed in making them. Somebody in New Orleans should have the same inclination to defend their Southern heritage.
