WATCH: Confederate Memorial ILLEGALLY Removed By Liberal Local Govt. On 153rd Anniversary Of Gettysburg Address
A late-filed lawsuit didn’t stop the effort to take down a Confederate memorial on the campus of the University of Louisville. The cleansing of our history continues on the 153rd anniversary of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address…Awful!
The memorial was built for Kentucky soldiers who died fighting for the Confederacy.
A lawsuit did not succeed in stopping the plan to take down a Confederate memorial on the campus of the University of Louisville. The cleansing of American history is well underway in the overtly politically correct government and it's happening on the 153rd anniversary of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. Disgusting!
More from WDRB:
A Louisville historian went to federal court at closing time Friday in an attempt to stop movement of the Confederate monument near the University of Louisville.
In a lawsuit, Brennan Callan asked a judge to stop the work to disassemble the monument, which was scheduled to begin Saturday morning.
It was not clear Friday night if a judge had issued an injunction.
“Our mayor is disobeying the law,” Callan said.
Callan’s federal lawsuit claims Louisville metro government doesn’t own the memorial and that the non-profit University of Louisville Foundation cannot legally pay for moving it to Brandenburg, Ky.
“The deeds will tell you the ownership, as well as (Kentucky Revised Statutes) 393, the estate laws, that this property is under the authority of the state treasurer,” Callan said.
So, Callan argues it should stay put until the questions are answered.
Per Councilman James: The statues will come off this morning. The rest of the monument will be disassembled later. pic.twitter.com/O4sewdlIH8
