With the world focus upon confederate monuments after the violence in Charlottesville and the announcements from various cities related to their respective monuments, the organizations that spearheaded the removal of the New Orleans monuments are announcing a rally this weekend.
In a Facebook and Twitter Live interview yesterday, I asked conservative columnist Quin Hillyer about the complaint I am hearing and reading from mainly pro-Donald Trump supporters—that Trump’s critics and members of the mainstream media would never accept anything Trump said or has done and would criticize him no matter what.
The words Confederate monuments have taken on more of a meaning for the United States, for President Donald Trump and for New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu. Despite the mayor’s recent actions in removing three monuments this spring, a new announcement is giving rise to the prospects that the legal debate over the local issue has not come to an end.
President Donald Trump on Monday finally condemned a white supremacist rally that turned violent on Saturday.
“Virginia Is For Lovers,” but you wouldn’t know it from this weekend’s events in C'ville where hate confronted our collective conscience again. President Donald Trump, meekly, condemned the violent clashes between the KKK, neo-Nazis, supremacists, and counter-protestors, as stronger expressions of outrage played out on television, cable, radio, and the Internet, but there’s more to it than his tepid response.
