Now Moonbats Want to Banish Sam Houston Statues From Houston

Via David

http://www.houstontx.gov/parks/artinparks/imagesBig/SamHouston1.jpg

Liberal fascists must be running out of Confederate generals to banish to the memory hole. Now they are going after heroes of the Texas Revolution, starting at the top:

The Sam Houston statue has been at Hermann Park since 1925, but a group that calls itself Texas Antifa has started a campaign to take down this and any other landmark that bears the name Sam Houston. …

[Last] Thursday, the group posted on its Facebook page saying, “Texans agree the disgusting idols of America’s dark days of slavery must be removed to bring internal peace to our country.”

The group also suggested Mayor Sylvester Turner should back the removal of the statue, because of his ethnicity and political affiliation.

Turner is a black Democrat.

(Again, for the cheap seats)  EDITING (DESTROYING) HISTORY MAKES IT EASIER FOR TOTALITARIAN FORCES TO TAKE OVER.  Witness the PRC, North Korea, Vietnam et al.
Not to mention, Sam Houston brought so much more to history than being a slave owner.  Just as Andrew Jackson did to New Orleans.  Or George Washington to this Republic.
Wake up and stop these fascist control freaks!
I believe in the United States, warts and all…

  1. Two words- Bring it. I think they will get a SIGNIFICANTLY different response than they are expecting…

  3. The calls for a well-heeled response have already gone out. Old NFO is right.

  4. Hmm – had to double check (been a LONG time since 8th grade Texas History!) – I knew that Gen. Sam had moved to Texas while it was still in Mexican hands – and they prohibited slavery. So by default it would appear that he was NOT a slave owner. Further, he opposed (as Governor) Texas seceding and joining the Confederacy – and was removed from office for that stance.
    Bottom line, (as usual) the antifa bunch (hack patooey) are WRONG.
    I heard about this on another site that was encouraging folks to counter the ‘protest’ – as Rev. Paul/Old NFO point out, it could get real sporty………….

  5. Time to pull down statues of US Grant and Ben Franklin – slave holders at various points in their lives.

    But I have a suggestion – every lib who has slave-holders in their ancestry shpuld self-immolate. It would clear out a lot of Stupids. Because English or Irish, French or German, Italian or Native American, slavery has been so universal throughout history that if that ancestry is a taint then we are ALL tainted.

    My great-great aunt Annie kept portraits of Lincoln and Lee over her fireplace. She told me once that they were the 2 greatest Americans who ever lived. She lost Union grandparents, listened to Union uncles tell stories of their service with the Union Army of the Potomac and of their woundings at Antietam and Gettysburg. And she GOT IT.
