lagop damageThe Louisiana Republican Party has sent out an "URGENT" email to its members asking them to contact their legislature due to "strongarming" by the Governor-in-Transition, Jon Bel Edwards.  Here is the press release:

 

Last month, Louisiana voters elected historic Republican majorities in both the House and Senate.

Now, our next battle is to ensure that our Republican legislators elect a Republican Speaker of the House.

Governor-elect John Bel Edwards is strong-arming Republicans and urging them to choose liberal Democrat Walt Leger as the next Speaker.

Here's the thing...the Speaker wields the power to set the agenda for the House of Representatives. With John Bel Edwards and Walt Leger calling the shots, all conservative reforms will be dead on arrival.

We won't even get to vote on conservative tax reform, expanding school choice, or much-needed tort reform. Instead, we'll be voting on tax increases, restrictions on our Second Amendment rights and policies that will put liberal unions back in charge.

Join us and tell our Republican legislators to commit to only voting for a REPUBLICAN Speaker of the House.

Click here to sign the petition and we'll forward your name on to your State Representative.

- Republican Party of Louisiana.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
