Berkeley isn’t a good metric for the war on free speech. The place is lunatic central and we won there because we were up against their very worst.
The “Battle of New Orleans” is a much better data point.
We have corrupt politicians, bussed in liberals, and the mainstream media trying to convince Southerners that their history is racist. It’s been an effective weapon for the past decade, but the sane community is finally standing up to it.
The mayor wants to take down four Confederate statues and sell them to a “white guilt” museum, but so far he’s only been able to take down two and it’s been in the dead of night. (NOTE: I taped tonight's interviews after the Liberty monument was taken down but before they took down Jefferson Davis.)
In fact, if it was a school grade, I’m not even sure it’s a pass.
However, the story got out. When it started, USA Today called the memorials “white supremacist” statues. This kind of talk was perfectly acceptable under Obama, but it didn’t last. Now the racist headlines are gone as journalist learned there is a thing in history called “nuance.”
I believe the rest of the world is learning this ,too.
They got half the statues in New Orleans, but only a small part of the narrative.
We’re still winning but we have a long way to go.
My first guest, Jason Kessler, is the President of Unity & Security for America.
He points out that some of those defending the statues are “Southern Nationalists” and he hopes they took note of the African-Americans who were also there to defend the region’s history.
Then NOLA native George Peterson reports on a lawsuit that’s been filed claiming ownership of one of the monuments slated for destruction. He too talks about the truly multicultural makeup of our side vs. the all-white rich Antifa kids.
