Well looky here. The children in Antifa are going to rally in Houston at the statue of Sam Houston on June 10th. They are going to protest to call for the removal of the statue of the "ugly slave holder Sam Houston"

I predict the communists will continue their winning streak of successful rewriting of American history.

Antifa protests have effectively been shut down by small groups of Patriots. If this does go through, I will be there to keep this junk in check, hopefully with other like minded citizens.

Confusing. Sam Houston actually opposed the Confederacy.

But he owned slaves while voting against the spread of slavery.

These morons also want to get the Sam Houston National Forest renamed. Perhaps we could convince them to hold a rally deep in the forest, far away from their media and police protectors. You know, so we can discuss it face to face. :mrgreen:

Next they will want to rename the City of Houston, Sam Houston State University and anything else with his name on it, or any other confederate soldier.

I think Houston should be renamed Warren in honor of the great native American woman Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who hails originally from the Oklahoma Territory.

Fascinating, to the point of comedic mystery, the manner in which Antifa appears to crave the trappings of fascism with their threats of violence.

Most of them indoctrinated by our institutions of "higher learning." Is being a SJW one of the ways repaying student loans can be deferred? :mrgreen:

For anyone interested, here is a facebook event for the counter-protest by the "This is Texas" page:


Over 200 people have marked themselves as "going" and the event has been shared 571 times. Event was created 1-2 hours ago.
I plan on going just to get numbers. I do not expect any violence because they will be outnumbered 3-4 to 1.

I wish I could take off, but it's about 4hr drive from my place.

Problem is, we the taxpayers have to actually work and do dumb things...like pay taxes, feed our kids, pay bills and such... :banghead:


If these little fascists try to intimidate someone, I sure hope they get a fistful of Texas....punks.
