Alabama has decided it has seen enough “progress” in New Orleans:
“Alabama lawmakers approved sweeping protections for Confederate monuments, names and other historic memorials on Friday, even as politicians elsewhere rethink the appropriateness of keeping such emblems on public property.
The measure “would prohibit the relocation, removal, alteration, renaming, or other disturbance of any architecturally significant building, memorial building, memorial street, or monument” that has stood on public property for 40 or more years,” it reads.
Changes to names or memorials installed between 20 and 40 years ago would need permission from a new state commission.
Supporters argued that the measure should protect all kinds of history — not just Confederate symbols.
Sen. Gerald Allen, the bill’s Republican sponsor, criticized what he called a “wave of political correctness” wiping out monuments to people he said were historically significant even if they had their personal flaws.
African-American lawmakers opposed the bill at every step of the legislative process, saying argued that solidifies a shameful legacy of slavery. …”
I have been creating a narrative against Republicans, but I am pleasantly surprised and genuinely thankful for this bill which is a real monument protection bill unlike its counterpart in Louisiana. This is the best thing Alabama Republicans have done in years and they deserve credit for it.
Come to the Alabama Gulf Coast to celebrate Mardi Gras. It is a whiter and safer area. We have superior beaches. Black communists aren’t calling the shots in this state.Follow Hunter Wallace on Gab, VK, Facebook and Twitter.
