Baltimore to Follow New Orleans in Removal of “Racist” Confederate Monuments (Video)

It is a sad day in America when today’s leftist culture of excessive political correctness sees it fit to tear down important historical monuments that honor some of the most important events and people in our history. While very few would argue that it was wrong that the Union ultimately prevailed, this does not mean that is wrong to honor the heroes of the Civil War; on both sides.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the latest sad news that the city of Baltimore wants to follow in New Orleans misguided footsteps and remove several important Confederate monuments; including monuments to the great General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson and ones to soldiers, sailors, and women.

Of course, Baltimore is also poised to do this at a time when the city’s public schools are failing and crime is rising; the removal of each statue is estimated to cost $200,000 each. There is also one other group that is infamous for removing statues of figures they disagree with…. the Taliban.

Conservative Tribune reports:

Most of our readers are aware that New Orleans recently sparked controversy by taking down a number of historical monuments honoring Confederate generals and heroes of the Civil War, essentially claiming they promoted racism and hurt people’s feelings.

According to The Daily Caller

The city of Baltimore, Maryland, appears to be the next locale in line to erase history by taking down a number of historical monuments as well, though the mayor hasn’t made a final decision on how to go about doing so just yet.

“The city does want to remove these,” Mayor Catherine Pugh told The Baltimore Sun. “We will take a closer look at how we go about following in the footsteps of New Orleans.”

“You name it, we’ve tackled it,” Pugh said of the arguably much more important issues of crime and failing education in her city. “This is another one of those things that we will tackle as well.”

The process to take down the monuments was seemingly begun under the city’s prior mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who didn’t remove them but instead placed placards in front of them decrying them as pro-slavery propaganda that had no place in modern society.

The signs read, in part, that the monuments were “part of a propaganda campaign of national pro-Confederate organizations to perpetuate the beliefs of white supremacy, falsify history and support segregation and racial intimidation.”

The monuments targeted for removal included one of General Robert E. Lee, General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, a monument to Confederate sailors and soldiers, a monument to Confederate women, as well as one honoring Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger Taney, author of the horrible Dred Scott decision that barred citizenship for black people.

“New Orleans has taken on this issue,” stated Pugh. “It costs about $200,000 a statute to tear them down. … Maybe we can auction them?”

That statement didn’t sit well with a former president of the Maryland chapter of the Daughters of the Confederacy, Carolyn Billups, who pointed to the out-of-control crime and murder rate and utterly failing education system as being far more urgent in terms of needing attention and resources.

“I find it interesting that Baltimore city has that kind of money to move statues when there are problems with crime and schools,” Billups said. “I would think that would be more of a priority.”

“If you erase Confederate history, what are you going to teach or think about?” she added.

As alluded to by Cummings, the Taliban in Afghanistan — and more recently the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria — have torn down and destroyed historical monuments and artifacts that weren’t in-line with their particular world view, stunningly similar to how progressives are attempting to tear down and destroy artifacts of history here in America for the exact same reason.

“We very much opposed to the Taliban-like destruction of Confederate memorials,” stated Elliot Cummings, an officer in the local chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans organization. “We will take whatever action necessary to block it.”

As an aside, the state of Alabama has gone a completely different route in the monument madness, passing a law to specifically protect the state’s historic memorials to Confederate heroes.

Like it or not, the Civil War and the Confederacy and slavery and racial discrimination were all a part of our nation’s history, and those things must be learned and remembered by all, lest we forget and unwittingly make the same mistakes as our forebears did. Removing the monuments doesn’t make all of that stuff just go away.

These monuments shouldn’t be torn down or covered over or defaced by vandalism, but should instead be viewed by each individual in their own way; Some may view them with disgust — others with appreciation — as a reminder of what our nation has endured and overcome in the past.
