Disgraceful: Likely last hurdle cleared, New Orleans expected to move quickly to remove Confederate monuments

 'Death threats,' 'threatening calls' prompt firm tasked with removing Confederate monuments to quit _lowres

A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously cleared the way Monday evening for the monuments to be removed, issuing an opinion that criticized groups seeking to keep the statues in place for arguments that “wholly lack legal viability or support.”

With what is likely the last legal hurdle the city faces removed, the statues are expected to come down quickly. Tyronne Walker, a spokesman for Mayor Mitch Landrieu, said the city will start seeking bids Tuesday to remove the statues, and a contract will be awarded 25 days later.

  1. Given that the U.S. declared Confederate veterans to be U.S. veterans, entitled to the same benefits as those who fought for the North, it seems strange that no one is pitching a fit about removing veteran memorials. Or maybe they are, but those who buy ink by the barrel & air-time by the month won’t allow any light to shine on their protestations. Go figure.

  2. Are they going to take Andy out of Jackson square as well? After all SLAVES! TRAIL OF TEARS!

    Not to mention that NOLA had a lot of free blacks who themselves owned slaves.
