They don’t know when to stop, do they?

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — The mayor of Lexington, Kentucky, says after the events in Charlottesville, Virginia, he is taking the steps to remove two Confederate-era statues from the lawn of a former courthouse.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that Mayor Jim Gray said in a statement Saturday he will ask the Lexington-Fayette County Urban County Council at its Tuesday work session to ask a state military commission for permission to take down the statues of John Hunt Morgan and John C. Breckinridge.

    Violent clashes occurred Saturday between white nationalists and counter-protesters in Charlottesville. Three people were killed, including a woman who died after a driver plowed into a group of peaceful marchers. Dozens more were injured.

    Love the contrast between “white nationalists” (BOOO!) and “counter-protesters” (YAYYY!)

    Doesn’t mention that two of them were cops in a helicopter crash.

    And the antifas were the peaceful ones…

    SF Gate; with news sources like this, it’s no wonder my d-i-l has some fucked up ideas.

    He’s either afraid of the left or after charlotville he knows who has his back.

    What the hell is this “ban the statue” business?

    Confederate statues don’t cause riots, savage American hating Commies do.

      It’s a very ISIS thing to do…Dominate/control a culture by eliminating their history.

    It’s all over the news here in the UK about the extreme right wing march. Odd it’s always extreme right wing for anyone who is not on the left but I have never heard any one being called extreme left wing it does not matter what they do. It’s never extreme left wing all ways peaceful marchers, I’ve heard this said on the news when in the film shown on the news the ‘peaceful marchers’ are setting cars on fire.

    Make no mistake this mayor knows exactly what he’s doing. Charlotte was a confirmation that no matter how far leftists go they will not be blamed. Now they can tear down memorials with impunity and anyone who fights back will labeled an extremist of the highest order. And if any non-lefty is actually peaceful about it by God the liberals will make sure to start something.

    The Russian narrative is collapsing as we speak. Look for the left to try anything and everything to pin on Trump to get him out. And look to the establishment, deep staters and media to support them 100%. Unless Trump starts going full tilt after these loons and forcing the law to be followed I fully expect multiple Charlottes every month leading right up until election day. And depending on how that goes, I expect it to get worse.

    Regardless if you agree with the Confederate cause or not, attempting to erase history is wrong. All of us know who the Domestic Enemies in our AO are. Keep a list handy. You’ll be glad you did one day.

    Jim Gray is about as lefty as it gets, and Lexington is one of the few dem bastions in an otherwise conservative state. He was waiting for the right moment when he could get away with it.

      …and it’s a straight shot West on I-64. Even the snowflakes can’t get lost. (maybe)

    Richmond will be their final straw. It’s also where they take on some of their biggest Left wing donors who own the restored houses on either side of Monument Ave.

    Because the property values die with those statues…

    Looks like we are going to have to start banning Dodge Challengers.

  11. Eric says:

    How is removing historical works any different from the shit ISIS did in any of the places it infested?

  12. Jesse in DC says:

    The Democrats are removing statues to hide their past so they can re write it in the present..
