calvarymanLOUISVILLE, Ky. — A federal judge has denied a last-minute request to stop Louisville officials from moving a Confederate monument to a nearby town.

The Courier-Journal reports U.S. District Judge Thomas Russell denied a request for a restraining order from Louisville resident Brennan James Callan on Saturday. Crews began dismantling the monument Saturday, a $400,000 project that is expected to take several days.

City officials announced this week they were moving the monument to Brandenburg. Protests of the 121-year-old monument increased following the 2015 racially-motivated shooting deaths of nine African-Americans at a church in South Carolina.

    Hopefully there will be a museum that safely harbors the statuary and documents.

    Dismantling Statutes doesn’t make history go away. It just increases the number of idiots that know not what they protest. Unfortunately it also costs true Americans more in tax dollars to pacify the noisy little snowflakes. I really hope they don’t spill their hot cocoa or the universities can prepare for even more lawsuits!

      They’ll just bring in more coloring books and doggie therapy.
      I’m having so much trouble reading about crap like this and not falling down laughing my F’n Ass off!!! These people want us to think of them as ADULTS, yet they cry like babies, need Safe Places, hot cocoa, doggie therapy, Aroma Therapy, COLORING BOOKS(?????).

      Lack of Discipline while growing up, combined with being taught that EVERYONE’S a WINNER equals…. Millennials!
      And guess what, Folks. In another 10 years, these SPOILED CHILDREN will be our new leaders.

        They have always received awards or ribbons just for participating. They were never taught right and wrong, ethics, morality or good citizenship. Much of their social agenda was considered mental illness only a few years ago. We are in dire straits IF these are who will care for us in our last years. They’ll kevorkian everyone they dont agree with or who cant actively help them in some way. They are selfish, immature and mostly brain dead BUT their EGOs are enormous!

    Got to stop bowing down and kissing the black mans a$$, everyone just did it for Obama, now he’s a nothing, leave history along! If this must go, then everything African must go also!!

  • John Adams

    This is part of our History so those that are offended by a Monument just get over it. Grow up.
