Dallas activists press for Confederate monument to come down

There is seemingly no end to the extent to which anti-gun people and groups will lie about guns and gun owners. Post links to articles by these masters of prevarication here.

That sounded interesting, until I saw those bozos running around in tac gear. Don't they realize that throws their credibility goes out the window?


Can you please explain to me how wearing gear throws my credibility out the window?

If we were wearing nazi uniforms or waving nazi flags... ok, sure. But when we are facing a violent group of people with sticks, shields, gas masks, and helmets, please explain to me how having body armor and a rifle is so radically beyond the realm of what is appropriate that you declare us to have suffered a loss of credibility?

If anything, it is only (and I do mean ONLY) wearing that gear that gets the job done. We have had antifa folks heckle and harass our people who were either unarmed, or only carrying concealed, but I have escorted groups to their vehicles and had antifa types turn tail and scatter when they see two of us all geared up escorting a handful of our rally attendees through a parking lot. So, being a member of the Safety Staff (We are not Security, and cannot refer to ourselves as such) of TITFF, I can tell you what has and has not happened at our Houston and San Antonio rallies.

What has your experience been at these rallies?

Also, doing or not doing something based on how it will be portrayed by the dishonest media is the height of foolishness. I could be dressed in a suit and tie, and simply because I am at a rally to support anything that the liberals do not like, I will be regarded as a right-wing nutjob by the media. So, how I am dressed has nothing to do with it. Being dressed in that gear increases my effectiveness and ability to do what I am there to do, and what the liberal media and timid Texans have to say about it is of no consequence to me.

I kind of expected to see some of my family members on that list. Fortunately, I did not.

With Mayor Rawlings out of town on Monday, Caraway spoke on the city's behalf. He says according to a memo from city staff, the estimated costs for the monuments' removal is $1.8 million.

It would cost $600,000 to remove the statue of Robert E. Lee and $1.2 million to remove the monument at Pioneer Park Cemetery.


What's $1.8 million? Besides, that's other people's money. :banghead:


I think the groups wanting the statue removed should have to pony up the money and pay for it. I bet if that was the case they would shut their traps about it!

Maybe not but the sculptor on the task force thinks the statue of Lee on Traveller is "one of the finest equestrian statues in the country" and should be preserved.
This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

CRT RADIO AD URGES DALLASITES TO CALL RAWLINGS TO STOP LEE STATUE “VANDALIZATION”

DALLAS – A sixty-second radio ad starting this morning takes aim at Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and Councilwoman Jennifer Gates for trying to “vandalize” the monument to General Robert E. Lee in Lee Park.

The statue, by noted American sculptor Alexander Phimister Proctor, was dedicated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1936. Proctor also sculpted the General Sherman monument outside New York’s Plaza Hotel, that was restored by Donald Trump.

Referring to the Lee Statue, the ad, paid for by the Conservative Response Team, notes “today Mayor Mike Rawlings and Councilwoman Jennifer Gates are fighting to tear it down in a vile act of historical vandalism and political correctness gone crazy,” adding that “this statue is more than a historical monument, but a work of art.”

“Yet after three attempts to take down the statue, countless tax dollars wasted and one death, they’re not giving up...tell Rawlings and Gates to stop the vandalization of the General Lee Monument and protect this classic work of art. Now. Before it’s too late.”

“Dallasites have one last chance to stop the city government from removing this monument and vandalizing this work of art and that’s by forcing the council to act and undo their vote. People are outraged and understanding what is happening here. Our commercial aims to turn that frustration into results,” the group said in a statement, noting that the Dallas City Council will be meeting at 2 pm on Friday, September 15th at City Hall. to take public comment.

I am on the TITFF Team and will be there on Saturday. Details will be released tomorrow. This will not be a Berkeley style brawl, just a peaceful rally. I met with DPD today and they are committed to making this a great event.

Licensed OC and long guns welcome.
