A civil district-court judge in Louisiana refused to issue a restraining order Monday, clearing the way for New Orleans to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard from a park.

The city is trying to pull down three still-standing Confederate statues, but opponents said they’d found evidence that the Beauregard statue was on property controlled by the state, not the city, so it couldn’t be taken down.

Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser, commissioner of the state agency that controls the park, said he discovered the link Sunday, and city resident Richard Marksbury went to court Monday asking for the restraining order.

But Civil District Court Judge Kern Reese rejected Mr. Marksbury’s request, permitting the city to move forward with removal, according to the Advocate, Baton Rouge’s daily paper.

    Not a problem. Let every single person in this area buy and fly a confederate flag over their homes. In my area of Florida just about everyone flies one just because they can and to annoy anyone who says otherwise.

    Not right to change our Southern Heritage that we knew so much about, not the blame of slavery, but the blacks holler African this and that, and they know absolutely nothing about Africa,and won’t go there to find out anything either!!

      Slavery would have been limited to Asians, Mid Easterners and Whites but the Black Community in Africa rounded up their kin and sold them to the slave traders. Just like Obama sold the Black Community down the drain in the USA and the African slave traders still operate today.

        Exactly friend, the North won and got to write history the way they wanted it and most is a big lie!

  • Ken says

    Until ALL US History is destroyed the Elite Establishment can’t achieve their total destruction of the USA and making it another 3rd World country in the Global Network of Equally Poor.

    Another brainless leftist pretending to be a judge.
    Given his race, he should have recused himself, but like Kagan, Sotomeyer, and Ginsburg, too egotistical to let obvious partiality stop his self-righteous quest.
