Just hours ago the Memphis city counsel voted to remove the Nathan Bedford Forrest statue from downtown Memphis. I'm not quite clear, but it appears someone, somewhere already knew what was going down because removal equipment was readily available and they are about to lift it out with a crane.

There is quite a crowd and a lot of police presence. Channel 24 says the police have snipers set up in case of trouble.

From what I've understood, the removal of this statue is against the law.

It's absolutely crazy this is happening. News stations are saying it's been sold. Sons of Confederate Veterans didn't buy it. This has to be illegal.

So Memphis voted to remove a grave marker and sold it to someone else? If that's the case I can't see how any of that could be legal.

Illegal?

When has the law ever stopped a Democrat. Especially a protected class Democrat.

Its not legal and it was done in spite of the historical society. It will stir more crap up sadly.

Cohen wants to dig him up.

Well, we can all rest easy tonight, as this will solve all the crime, low graduation rates, teenage pregnancy, drug and race relation problems in the city of Memphis. This should get it done. :bash:

You are absolutely right Hardwood, this is a grave marker and what they are doing is desecration of a burial site.

Just another DEMOCRAT statue removed.

Look at any list of all the Confederate statues that have been removed then look up each man's history. They all belonged to the same party. Heck, Forrest was a delegate to the DNC more than once.

Wonder when MLKs statue will go up?

Or an Obama Statue. You really have very few options for a statue when your a modern Democrat.

In which case almost no one here should be upset that all these nasty democrats are being removed.

But it reminds everyone who were the Democrats and what they did. The Democrats want that gone.

If the people of today had any idea what that man did after the war for Memphis or black people they would have a different perspective
