Work crews in Richmond, Va., removed a second confederate statue Thursday,
one day after Mayor Levar Stoney enacted emergency powers to have eleven
statues taken down in light of recent protests.

The monument of Navy officer and scientist, Matthew Fontaine Maury, was
pulled down by a crane as onlookers appalled.

Maury’s statue followed the removal of Gen. Stonewall Jackson Wednesday.

“We’re transforming the landscape, removing symbols of injustice.
Meanwhile, the work doesn’t stop to transform systems built on that same
hateful foundation,” Stoney said in a Tweet Thursday.

Maury’s monument was originally erected in 1929 on Richmond’s Monument
Ave. He was an expert in naval meteorology and navigation and in charge of
the coastal and river defenses for the Confederate Army during the Civil
War.

Stoney ordered the removal of all Confederate statues Wednesday after a
new state law granted cities and counties control over their monuments. He
further surpassed the need for a vote by enacting emergency powers, which
he was able to do as Gov. Ralph Northam has placed Virginia under a state
of emergency.

“I have the ability to do this through my emergency powers," Stoney said
Wednesday. "I think we need to act today."

Stoney also said that the statues needed to come down as a matter of
public safety, noting the statues that demonstrators have already pulled
down by force, and the continuous threat of the coronavirus.

"Failing to remove the statues now poses a severe, immediate and growing
threat to public safety,” Stoney said in a statement. "As the COVID-19
pandemic continues to surge, and protesters attempt to take down
Confederate statues themselves or confront others who are also doing so,
the risk grows for serious illness, injury, or death."


The Democratic mayor ordered the removal of 11 statues following more than
a month of protests against systematic racism in the U.S. after the death
of George Floyd, who died in police custody on May 25.

Northam ordered the removal of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee located on
state land in Richmond. The order has been blocked by a lawsuit and is
being challenged in court.

Virginia Republicans have criticized Stoney and Northam’s calls to remove
Confederate statues, but no lawsuits have been announced against Stoney’s
most recent statue removals.

Richmond is no longer run by the rule of law - it's devolved into anarchy.
Stoney should resign on the grounds that his cowardice during a time that
demands leadership proves he's unfit to lead Virginia's capital.

Confederate monuments in Richmond are coming down on the same day that the
dozens of progressive bills Virginia Democrats promised and then passed
take effect.

No collusion - Special Counsel Robert Swan Mueller III, March 2019.

Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party ran out of gas and got run over by a Trump
truck.

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp. Obama sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood
queer liberal democrat donors.

President Trump has boosted the economy, reduced illegal immigration,
appointed dozens of judges and created jobs.

Senile loser and NAMBLA supporter Nancy Pelosi got "Trumped" on February

And yet it was Democrats in a DEMOCRATS State and a Democrats city who
killed GEORG FLOYD, remember Mr. FLOYD the guy who DEMOCRATS tell us
this rioting and burning and looting was for?

Oddly enough there weren't any Confederates anywhere within 1000 miles
or 100 years of George Floyd.

SO why are they destroying Confederate art?

And this destruction from those DEMOCRATS who believe that a crucifix in
a jar of piss is actually ART.

Use of the words PRIVILEGED and RACIST is prejudicial and hateful and it
promotes Marxist-DEMOCRATS FRACTIONAL SLAVERY.

Because they're fucking traitors who murdered Americans. Oh, sorry...
that should read "losing fucking traitors who murdered Americans".

Does that help?
