St. Louis And Museum Argue Over Who Gets To Remove Confederate Monument

A Missouri museum sued St. Louis Friday over ownership of a Confederate monument in the city. Both parties want to remove the memorial, but insist upon their sole ownership.

The Missouri Civil War Museum sued St. Louis and filed a temporary restraining order, according to St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The museum asserts it will remove the statue from the city’s Forest Park by Friday June 23, with no cost to taxpayers provided the city acknowledges its ownership.

    I never dreamed I would one day see the American equivalent of Mao’s “cultural revolution” with American Red Guards flourishing in the United States, but this is exactly what it amounts to.

    It’s like Islamic State and the Taliban arguing over who gets to demolish the blasphemous infidel icon.

    It is a part of history and taking it down will not change history. What the hell is the matter with the US and Canada, that you let people coming into this country, tell what to do? This in my book is called bullshit.

    Time to remove the MLK bust from the White House.

  • One can remove whatever statues one wishes but that will not erase history.

      No, but they rewrite it. That is exactly what the Liberals did in Canada, and when they claim they want Canada back they mean the invented mythic version. It began with the trashing of our flag for me.

      • I’m waiting for the revision of how Chinese businessmen founded Canada with the help of Gerald Butts.

    This is a comedy sketch, right?
