Well, today (September 24th) is the day that a far left group called “Take ‘Em Down Nola” which has aligned itself with Black Lives Matter, has decided that the statue of Andrew Jackson in New Orleans has to come down. It’s got to be done today. These worthies claim that the police in New Orleans will just have to step aside and watch while they dismantle the statue of Jackson which is in the French Quarter. This group has made threats against the police and Mayor Mitch Landrieu in the past. Had anyone on the right side of the political spectrum done such it would have been a federal crime of almost international proportions but as long as someone on the left has made the threats they will be ignored. That’s the way “equality under the law” works in this country anymore. The left goes to jail and immediately gets a free pass out. The rigt just goes to jail for 99 years and the key is thrown away.
This leftist group claims they want to police to step aside so they can do their “civic duty.” You see, in the murky netherworld of the theological and political left, vandalism is redefined as a civic duty as long as what you are tearing down is part of white culture. I guess we will just have to wait until the end of the day to find out whether these cultural Marxists were allowed by authorities in New Orleans to perform their “civic duty.” Somehow, I can’t imagine the mayor of New Orleans giving them all that much of a hassle. I’m sure if they decided to do their “civic duty” with Confederate monuments (which they yet may) Comrade Landrieu would have a field day!
As for the group they are aligned with, Black Lives Matter, it’s been around since 2013, formed by Alicia Garza who, according to http://www.discoverthenetworks.org has described herself as a “queer social justice activist who reveres the Marxist revolutionary, former Black Panther, and convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur for her contributions to the Black Liberation Movement.” Garza collaborated with two others of her Marxist ilk to form the Black Lives Matter group.
Discover the Networks also observed that “Though BLM is intended to represent the needs and grievances of all black people, Garza makes it clear that her organization is especially committed to helping ‘Black queer and trans folks’…” These people do let you know what they are all about.
The platform for Black Lives Matter states, in part: “We believe in elevating the experiences and leadership of the most marginalized Black people, including but not limited to those who are women, queer, trans, femmes, gender nonconforming, Muslim, formerly and currently incarcerated…” You can tell this is a Marxist group. They support all the right people.
In an article written for Conservative Daily Post Eric Whittle wrote on September 23rd that: “Regardless, one spokesperson for Take “Em Down Nola said that they would forcefully remove the (Jackson) monument if necessary, adding ‘that’s not a threat, that’s a promise.’ Take ‘Em Down Nola vandalized monuments with the message ‘take ’em down or we will.” How much more will it take to make folks realize their culture and way of life is under assault?
Just out of curiosity, I wonder how many of those that claim to belong to this second cousin to Black Lives Matter are really from New Orleans and how many are imports brought in from somewhere else to help stoke the fires of “civil rights.” That is a common tactic among Marxist groups–bringing in outsiders to help spread the mayhem and claiming they are all discontented local folks when actually many of them are nothing more than professional leftist agitators.
A good case in point is the riots in Charlotte, North Carolina, by the merest coincidence, taking place at the same time as the current brouhaha in New Orleans.
An article on http://www.zerohedge.com for September 23rd by Tyler Durden noted the comments of a man from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Fraternal Order of Police. He said: “This is not Charlotte out here. These are outside entities that are coming in and causing these problems. These are not protesters, these are criminals…if you go back and look at some of the arrests that were made last night.I can about say probably 70% of those had out-of-state IDs. They’re not coming from Charlotte.” And Mr. Durden also observed that “18 months ago, as the riots flared in Ferguson, there was one man pulling the strings of this domestic false flag…George Soros. George Soros donated $33 million to social justice organizations which helped turn the events in Ferguson from a local protest into a national flashpoint.” Soros has also funded Black Lives Matter, the second cousin to this group in New Orleans that is working to tear your culture down.
It’s about time, in fact it’s long past time that we in the South woke up and realized that there is a concerted Marxist and One World Government agenda afoot to totally dismantle and do away with our history, faith, culture and heritage–and most of us blithely sit back and watch it happen. Then we complain when our grandchildren grow up to be little Marxists. You better wake up and smell the coffee while there is still some left to smell!
