Mob Rule Reigns: Dallas Honors Communists, Dumps Confederates
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. September 8, 2017
Mob rule has taken over Dallas City Hall.
The fix was already in even before the Dallas City Council heard our public testimony on September 6. Prior to the meeting, cranes had been dispatched to the statute to remove the statute of Robert E. Lee. In a blatant overreach of authority, the City Council decided 13-1 to ignore citizens and railroad the removal of all Confederate memorabilia, even that in the Fair Park displays. Names of buildings and streets and schools must be changed. Former Texas House Representative Will Harnett has warned this will cost many millions. Just think of the disruption to businesses and even traffic as crews set about removing all things Confederate.
It seems that City Hall is out of control and may even be incapable of governing Dallas. Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway told radio talk show host, Mark Davis, that waiting 90 days for the Task Force report was dangerous. His reason: As long as the statute stands, Dallas police are in danger. Quick removal will assuage future rioting.
Is Caraway mentally capable of governing Dallas? Such irrational comments lead us to wonder.
Of course, getting rid of Confederate memorabilia is not the real issue here. The real issue is that, since the 1930s, neo-Marxists have been on a “long march through the institutions” in America to rewrite our history and destroy our Republic. They intend, IF we allow it, to destroy every last vestige of our history.
Unfortunately the lessons we as a society could learn from the War Between the States have been hijacked by northern liberals who used the issue of slavery to taint the South. The hoodwinking of Americans as to the cause of the Civil War is one of the more egregious acts of educational sabotage ever perpetrated on our nation. Original Civil War documents indicate there were multiple political cause with one being slavery.
If we are going to destroy our history, why target only Confederate history when there are numerous monuments to communists/Marxists? Millions have been enslaved and murdered under this type of government.
A good place to begin is with monuments to communists/Marxists Cesar Chávez and Dr. Maya Angelou. Throughout Texas and even in Dallas there are schools, buildings, streets, and more named after these hard left radicals.
Since noises are being made to erect a statute of Angelou in place of the Lee statute, I thought it appropriate in my testimony before the City Council on Wednesday to point out that we must continue our purge of the memory of slavery and violence by removing all references to Chávez and Angelou. Surely Dallas doesn’t want to replace Lee with a communist. Mayor Rawlings seemed quite angry with my comment as he scowled and tapped his foot.
Let’s check the facts on Chávez and Angelou.
