Sure, because removal of the monuments is much much more important than the city's skyrocketing homicides. Baltimore this year has the highest murder rate per capita EVER.

But you go spend your time going after those monuments, Mayor Pugh.

The mayor isn't taking them down herself. Good on her for picking up the banner.

Confederate monuments are not acceptable moving forward. flag

New Orleans Mayor Landrieu's speech on the subject is very good.

and these removals will continue and at some point, some here cheering will say "wait why that?" and it will be too late. And when that happens those that are happy over these can say nothing.


and the ones say do not like my so-called slippery slope argument... we are already on it!

When the rebel flags were taken down by theft and then by force of law.


then the criminal blocking of speakers on university campuses....

then removal of statues of people for reasons that seem to show a lack of historical understanding....


And is this TRUE? That a white-owned burrito place was shut down because the owners were guilty of "cultural appropriation."

Now what's next...

What exactly about the Confederacy are you fighting for?
It was a failed government. Slavery was on the way out. America came late to the emancipation party and then had a damn war over it. Nothing noble about that.

Mayor Landrieu of New Orleans spoke eloquently on why we don't want the burden of that war displayed everywhere. He is not only a very white looking guy (who acknowledges his own black relatives), he is Louisiana political royalty, no upstart. His father was also the mayor of NOLA. You are on the wrong side of history, but that's your choice. We improved our city without you.

Baltimore looks like it's gonna be next. flag

well they lost a war when the US attacked them for leaving...


Slavery was on the way out.

the US was not fighting to END slavery. The war was to make the southern states come back/stay in the Union. But there was no real push to end slavery at that time. In fact Linclon used slavery to help him win.


America came late to the emancipation party and then had a damn war over it.

actualy it was early


Nothing noble about that.

Never suggested there was (I am going on the assumption based or the rest of this post you are goining under the assumption that the was fought to end slavery)

Mayor Landrieu of New Orleans spoke eloquently on why we don't want the burden of that war displayed everywhere.

okay? and


He is not only a very white looking guy

do you have issues that this man that looks white?

(who acknowledges his own black relatives), he is Louisiana political royalty, no upstart. His father was also the mayor of NOLA.

relevance? (hint ZERO)



You are on the wrong side of history, but that's your choice.

you are making an erroneous assumption

We improved our city without you.


and are you saying I should have zero say on such matters?

Baltimore looks like it's gonna be next. flag


Hummm (and wait until they come after something you might think is okay)

There is no way I'm going to address your tit for tat ridiculous breakdown. And no, you don't get to decide what statues we have in New Orleans, Mr States Rights. You never gave a damn until now.

Oh? Interesting as I never once said I wielded any such authority. But I have the right to express my opinion on any or everything in nola



Mr States Rights.

I am more of a constitutionalist which means the states have some rights or a better term is authority and the fed has others.


You never gave a damn until now.

Why must you just make stuff up?

and if 'they' ever start to remove things you think ought to be allowed to stand you will not be able to say anything unless you want to prove your double standard

STRAW MAN. Fuck the Confederacy. New Orleans moves forward. You've got nothing to back up your view from Texas. You barely had a dog in the fight you want to commemorate. Talk about sad...

for one what I said can not be a lie as there nothing in there that has a truth value. I did not make any claims that can be either true or false. I stated an opinion that something is nice. And I did not say she had given up or admitted anything I simply said it was nice when she did. So your post is not true...that is not nice... tsk tsk

Now I might not oughta do this but I doubt you even know what a confederate flag looks like... describe it...

EDIT! opps i got a text and forgot! The main reason I am doing this is because you mocked me for spelling "covfefe" incorrectly... so...
