We can’t find a White Southerner running for the Republican presidential nomination who will say a kind word for our Confederate monuments:
Gov. Bobby Jindal’s office is looking for ways he can keep four Confederate monuments erected in New Orleans, presumably over the objections of Mayor Mitch Landrieu and the City Council.
“Governor Jindal opposes the tearing down of these historical statues and he has instructed his staff to look into the Heritage Act to determine the legal authority he has as Governor to stop it,” said Doug Cain, Jindal’s spokesman, in a written statement Thursday evening (Aug. 13).
The Jindal team would not elaborate on what Heritage Act is or how it might be used to stop the removal of Confederate landmarks in New Orleans. But the governor is willing to explore a variety of legal avenues for keeping the Confederate monuments in tact, according to his staff. …”
