***Commissioners voted 4-3 last month to keep the monument at its current location. Another vote will be held on Wednesday.
If commissioners change course on the monument, Tampa will join New Orleans and Orlando as cities that have removed Confederate statues.***
The answer to the topic’s question is very basic. It was Democrats who supported slavery, Black Code laws, segregation, etc., and today, most Blacks are democrats and this is why they are on a mission to erase their party’s ugly past.
”After the Civil War, Democrats implemented new strategies to re-enslave or oppress African Americans. They introduced things like Jim Crow laws. President Woodrow Wilson (D) segregated the Army and Federal government. They were integrated by Republicans before him, and again by Republicans after Roosevelt. President Roosevelt appointed a leader of the Ku Klux Klan to the Supreme Court, and another KKK leader, Robert Byrd, was a prominent Democratic Senator for decades. Republicans had tried to pass the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts since the mid-50’s, but Democrats blocked them, until President Johnson (D) gutted the Acts and passed them as part of a scheme to pacify blacks and snare their votes.”
Is there any wonder why Democrats are the driving force behind erasing our nation’s history by removing Confederate statues, memorials, etc.?
They are not “liberals” or “progressives”. They are conniving Marxist parasites who use government force to steal and then enjoy the property which labor, business and investors have worked to create.
