Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer voted against moving the Robert E. Lee statue out of a city park. Now Signer has changed his mind. He wants Lee gone ASAP.
“All of a sudden these statues of Civil War generals installed in the Jim Crow era, they became touchstones of terror,” he continued.
Yes Mr. Singer, indeed, all of a sudden statues installed to terrify black people in the South during the Jim Crow era when they were segregated, beaten, burned out of their homes, lynched from trees, jailed unjustly, forced into so-called separate but equal bathrooms, schools, lunch counters, forced to sit in the backs of busses and endure low wages, daily onslaughts of racist epithets and more, some of which continues to this day, yes, all of a sudden those statues have all of a sudden become touchstones of terror.
Who could have known that all of a sudden these statues of Civil War generals installed in the Jim Crow era would all of a sudden become touchestones of terror? Who indeed?
Six police officers were shot, one of them fatally, in three separate gun incidents in Florida and Pennsylvania late Friday, officials said.
A spokesperson from the Трамп regime said the White House is still deciding who to blame for the incidents. “Mr. Трамп is leaning towards blaming violent illegal immigrants, but may decide to blame Black Lives Matters and all of those liberals instead.”
The White House is fairly certain at this time that Mr. Трамп plans to botch sending public condolences to the slain officer’s families.
There’s no word yet if he’ll botch them as badly as he botched his remarks on Charlottesville.
Popular vote loser, Russian supported Presidential candidate and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп and Melania Trump will not participate in this year’s annual Kennedy Center Honors ceremony to avoid any “political distraction.” Several attendees had announced they were boycotting a White House reception that is typically held before the ceremony.
A White House spokesman clarified that by political distraction, Donald Трамп meant, “jokes made at my expense and booing.”
I dunno. The Kennedy Center Honors are held in December, typically. Like, the ceremony is at the start of the month, then the awards are broadcast at the end, around Christmas. Maybe Donald Трамп already knows he won’t be President anymore by then.
It would be a Christmas miracle!
Have you done your part today? If not, take a moment to decide what to do, how you can help, and pitch in! Maybe pitching in for you means telling me I’m dumb, go for it! Whatever it is, make your time count!
