Let it be said: New Orleans Mitch Landrieu has angered many in New Orleans and Louisiana with his recent controversy over taking down the confederate monuments.
As Tropical Storm Harvey made its devastation throughtout Eastern Texas, Houston, Beaumont, Port Arthur and Lake Charles Louisiana, the memories of Hurricane Katrina became that much more vivid to many.
Few people in America know how devastating a natural disaster might be more than those who lived through Hurricane Katrina. New Orleans, never could have come back as quickly as it has without the love and support from individuals from around the world, non-for-profit organizations and communities.
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu has been very busy this week, preparing, even if the latest Hurricane, Harvey, is hundreds of miles away bruising the Texas coast and flooding southeastern parts of the state.
New Orleans certainly would prefer to be in better shape as Tropical Depression Harvey moves towards Texas.
However, on Tuesday,
What to do with those Confederate statues that once populated the parks, green spaces and circles in New Orleans, and soon-to-be-elsewhere Louisiana and Red State USA?
It's clear that political correctness is winning and those longing for the memories where men were men and slaves were, well...
So, he are some of the options:
Statues of New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu who almost single-handedly has ripped down the long-standing monuments of Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis and P.T. Beauregard and who is getting other Mayor's across the nation to follow suit?
Saturday will be the day of protests from the left and the wet:
FLOOD CITY HALL
This Saturday August 19, 2017 at 11 AM, a rally will be held in Duncan Plaza to allow the citizens of New Orleans to “flood city hall” with their voices. Organized out of frustration for the lack of leadership coming from the Mayor’s Office regarding the flooding in New Orleans two weeks; participants will unify in their belief that Mayor Mitch Landrieu should resign effective January 1, 2018 after the fall elections are finalized.
Both President Donald Trump and New Orleans Mitch Landrieu lead their respective armies in the Battles of the Civil War monuments.
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.
