Mother Nature Has Spoken Loud and Strong!!! NO MORE WORSHIPPING AT THE ALTARS OF SLAVERY EVER!!!
Confederate soldiers are NOT “our heroes.!!!” These old moldy rotten memorials are VERY immoral commemorations of great harms to minds and hearts of children and of course all the adults in Louisiana, the USA and global citizens being harmed by glorification of killers for the sick evil monstrous institutions of slavery!!!
TIME TO TEAR DOWN such ungodly memorials for once and for all in our Christian nation, and build a memorial to peace, people and planet in honor of truth and LOVE!!! Pray for forgiveness for the demonic crimes of slavery and cease and desist honoring such BS.

Please consider opening a much needed Slavery Holocaust Museum and Library to honor all the souls who suffered and died horrible ghastly lives and deaths at the hands of VERY ungodly slave owners!!! More people suffered and died due to Slavery Holocaust than died due to Hitler’s Holocaust!!!

Losers don't get to be celebrated or revered. Even putting these abominations in a museum is a bad idea. Books, written by authors who tell the true story as to not control the narrative, is how we remember history. The B.S. statements about "states rights" or "taxation" need to end. They are factually incorrect. And while we're at it, let it be time to rename our military bases and do something about Stone Mountain in Georgia.

Learn your history you morons! The North didn't give a crap about slaves!! Abraham Lincoln himself said he didn't care if blacks were ever freed and that blacks would never be on the same level with whites!

It is time for change! This statue does not represent the people of our entire community. It only serves as a reminder of how hard many people fought to keep slavery.

It should never have been allowed on government property in the first place and is offensive.
