Third Confederate Statue Removed in New Orleans

More of the history of the founding stock of the nation is being removed Tuesday night as these words are being written.

The Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard led the south’s assault on Fort Sumter. After the war, the little Frenchman made St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana his home. That the same parish where I grew up.

What ignorant politically correct anti white racists probably don’t know is that Beauregard was a supporter of complete Negro equality after the war, promoting the Negro right to vote and total integration of the races.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Piece by piece, New Orleans’ landscape is changing as city workers take down massive works of bronze and stone that once seemed immoveable in a region where some still cling to a Confederate legacy.

The city announced late Tuesday that it had begun the process of removing a statue of Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard — the third of four monuments city officials plan to take down across the city. The news release came as police cordoned off the site and what appeared to be a large crane was moved into position. It was not clear how long it would take to remove the massive bronze likeness of Beauregard on horseback.

“Today we take another step in defining our City not by our past but by our bright future,” said Mayor Mitch Landrieu in a news release. “While we must honor our history, we will not allow the Confederacy to be put on a pedestal in the heart of New Orleans.”

Landrieu called for the monuments’ removal in the lingering emotional aftermath of the 2015 massacre of nine black parishioners at a South Carolina church. The killer, Dylann Roof, was an avowed racist who brandished Confederate battle flags in photos, recharging the debate over whether Confederate emblems represent racism or an honorable heritage.

The removal process has been anything but easy.

The City Council voted 6-1 in 2015 to remove the monuments after a succession of contentious public meetings where impassioned monument supporters and opponents heckled each other. Contractors involved in the removal process have been threatened, and the work stalled for months as monument supporters looked in vain to the courts for help. Workers removing the first two memorials generally wore bulletproof vests, helmets and face coverings to shield their identities as the work took place well after midnight to minimize attention.

The Beauregard removal appeared slightly more low-key, starting in the evening after sunset. Local media showed images of monument supporters waving Confederate battle flags while those supporting their removal stood nearby but reported the situation was largely peaceful. Across a bayou from where the monument stands, some observers sat in lawn chairs to watch the proceedigns, the media reported.

For supporters, the works are a way to remember and honor history.

“Mayor Landrieu’s actions are an insult to New Orleanians who came before us_the veterans, widows, parents, children, and citizens_who donated their personal money to build and place these monuments where they stand to honor the memory of their fallen family members,” said Pierre McGraw, President of the Monumental Task Committee, in a statement Tuesday. The committee has been advocating to keep the monuments in place.

But for many in this majority black city, the monuments pay honor to a history of slavery and segregation, and they want them down. When the statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis was finally lifted from its pedestal, a cheer erupted from dozens of demonstrators who’d waited for hours to see the city fulfill its promise.

  1. As Negroids are taking over cities, it’s predictable that Negroidic euphoria would carry them further, and DemonCraps are always at hand to assist. At least some comfort is coming from here – Louisiana House passes bill that protects Confederate monuments –

    The sort of news like removal of Confederate monuments and flags drives me mad where I would be more than willing to participate in hanging all these Lefturds by slowly, very slowly pulling the ropes upwards. Similar crap is going here in the fucking EU, wherever you turn around, it’s Lefturds, Muzzies and Niggers. Watching growing numbers of African Niggers coming daily is soooo “relaxing”, whereas disgraceful Nigger-craving mudsharks are just “icing on the shit-cake”

  2. No big loss then if he was an egalitarian. I’d like to see them try to remove lord Nelson from Trafalgar Square or Boudicca from the Embankment.

  3. The next time NOLA has a killer emergency like a hurricane, flood, or whatever I urge all white people to stand around and laugh with glee as the Negroids suffer. Grab a six pack, turn on FOX or whatever and enjoy.

    This is one of the worse thing blacks could have done. Removing Southern heroes destroyed what was left of that good will many whites felt for some blacks, (the good-uns).

    No more white men volunteering to fly helicopters over the chocolate wasteland city to pluck coloreds from rooftops. If they are ordered to fly, refuse to do so as no one is required to follow illegal commands. No more whites donating money and accepting NOLA apes to their cities out of misplaced compassion. By all means, whites should refuse to join any US military organization. The Army, Navy, Air Farce, etc are out to destroy you, white boy. When the country was 90 percent white, these organizations were yours and deserved support. They aren’t yours anymore.

    Civil war two is upon us. But that is not exactly true. Civil war one is but reignited. Most of what NeoCONs bleat about daily on talk radio stems from the overreach of Ape Lincoln and his war to preserve the cursed alliance and protect northern corny capitalism. As long as the states were sovereign, they had veto over an oppressive central power. As a result of Lincoln’s war, that government can now define the limits of its own reach, and that reach is limitless. Even black racist Walter Williams has acknowledged this.

    From Robert E. Lee in a letter to Lord Acton.

    ” . . . [T]he consolidation of the states into one vast republic, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of the ruin which has overwhelmed all those that have preceded it.”

    Well, Bob Lee, it sort of turned out that way didn’t it.

  4. Sadly, very few YT’s are going to protest these outrages. Read your Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, and you will understand this. We will watch these outrages on TV or on our blogs, but will do nothing actively to counter them. Be aware that we are not defending God or His Glory (God created the universe and does not need my help on this sh*tty temporal earth). We are defending our Caucasian lives and our Caucasian children’s lives/survival. I am at the last third of my life and getting my affairs in order. I have but one life to live and will not live it under tyrants and psychos as described by Solzhenitsyn. All life is a struggle at points in human history. I guess that we must decide how we want to live– like cowed sheep or lions, and how we want to die– laying in a piss-soaked bed in a nursing home being abused by the minimum-wage niggers/spics hired to care for you, or in a blaze of glory taking some of the enemy with you. I made my choice. Just got to get the ducks in a row first.

  5. The war was never over slavery, as 5 slave states kept their slaves and stayed in the union. Not to mention the states that didn’t secede until the traynt asked those states for troops to kill White men.

    It was about taxes.
