First, there was destroying the Confederate flag, now we turn to this disgusting event.
NOW, In the wee hours of Monday morning, a day celebrated as Confederate Memorial Day in other southern states, workers dressed in black vests and wearing pieces of cloth to cover their faces removed a monument in New Orleans.
The removal began just before 1:30 a.m. Eastern, after a small group of protesters, departed from the monument and a wave of officers with the New Orleans Police Department barricaded points of entry to the monument, The Times-Picayune reported.
Is it time for those in the south who hold their heritage dear to start taking out the liberal members of their legislatures who allowed their plan to go forward?
New Orleans is a lost city much the same as San Francisco.
It will take other southern folks if they are concerned about this issue to lead the charge to stop it in its tracks.
Snipers were stationed on the parking deck looking down at the monument.
Just before 2:15 a.m., two flatbed trucks arrived at the monument, carrying equipment to haul it away.
The name of the company on the truck’s sides was concealed by tape and cardboard, and the workers wore black vests, yellow helmets, and pieces of cloth to cover their faces.
Just before 3 a.m., workers started drilling to remove the obelisk.
The monument was driven away around 5:35 a.m.

Other monuments slated for removal include the Robert E. Lee statue, the Jefferson Davis statue, and the P.G.T. Beauregard equestrian statue.
Each of the four monuments in question had been vandalized, with “Black Lives Matter” spray-painted on the Beauregard statue in 2015.
“The removal of these statues sends a clear and unequivocal message to the people of New Orleans and the nation: New Orleans celebrates our diversity, inclusion and tolerance.
This is not about politics, blame or retaliation.
This is not a naïve quest to solve all our problems at once.
This is about showing the whole world that we as a city and as a people are able to acknowledge, understand, reconcile, and most importantly,choose a better future.”
Diversity, Inclusion, and Tolerance?
New Orleans is one of the unique cities in America.
The Landrieu family and its leftist base have slowly turned a rich cultural city into a hellhole, and they are not finished with her yet.
The three other monuments are slated to be removed this week, also under the cover of darkness, with snipers at the ready.
