The Left Is Now Trying To Replace Confederate Monument With Statue Of Rapper Missy Elliott

Just stunningly insane. There is a leftist petition out there now that wants to replace the Confederate monument in Olde Towne Portsmouth, Virginia, with a statue of rapper Missy Elliott. Who? Never heard of her and I certainly don’t want a statue of some rapper put in the place of a war monument. They say her visage captures the culture and spirit of the city. If so, they are in deep doo doo.

They laughingly claim that she rose to fame without owning one slave. You might want to ask her assistants about that assumption. To be fair Elliott has not answered this lunacy. So what now… we tear down all our history and replace it with pop culture icons? Many who have criminal backgrounds and long rap sheets. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Let’s just swirl the ceramic drain and go all the freaking way down. Degradation and depravity for all!

From Breitbart:

The left-wing campaign to pull down Confederate monuments has gone pop, as more than 10,000 people have signed a petition to replace the Confederate monument in Olde Towne Portsmouth, Virginia, with a statue of rapper Missy Elliott.

The author of the petition, Nathan Coflin, says Elliott “encapsulates the culture and spirit of the city.”

“Hailing from humble beginnings as the only child of a power company dispatcher and a welder at Portsmouth’s lauded naval shipyard, she rose to become a platinum recording artists with over 30 million albums sold. All this without even once owning a slave,” the petition reads. “Together we can put white supremacy down, flip it and reverse it.”

“Missy is all of us. Missy is everything the Confederacy was not,” it adds. Coflin plans to deliver the petition to City of Portsmouth Mayor John L. Rowe, Vice Mayor of Portsmouth Paige Cherry, Councilman Bill Moody Jr., and other locally elected officials.

So far, I’ve heard that they want to remove Confederate statues and monuments across the nation. Then they moved onto the Founding Fathers and their statues and monuments. This morning it was Catholic saints. This will never end now because we let it start to begin with. And it is all cover for a communist coup from within. Antifa is running wild in our streets and the violent American Spring is now blooming.

What drives me insane is this is a minority of Americans and could be stopped. But no one seems to have the courage or the will to do so, including our esteemed leaders. I guess I’m not surprised… we let a Marxist like Obama rule for eight years and we are letting President Trump be smeared and destroyed by these same communists. America… in the end you will get what you deserve and God help us.
