Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal Moves to Prevent Removal of Historical Statues Including Confederate

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is moving to make it illegal to remove historical statues and markers from government property in the Pelican State, including those depicting Confederate figures or memorializing Confederate history.

Jindal is moving to protect historical markers[1] and put an end to the agitation by left-wingers, and anti-American groups like the so-called “black lives matter” followers who have been attacking historical monuments for months, now.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R) is looking for a way to block attempts to remove historical statues–statues of Confederate leaders in this instance–from their current positions in New Orleans.

Jindal’s presidential campaign described efforts to remove the Confederate statues as “political correctness run amok.”

The statues marked for removal include one of Confederate President Jefferson Davis and Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and P.G.T. Beauregard. Breitbart News previously reported that New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu was spearheading the effort to have the statues removed.

According to Buzzfeed, Jindal spokesperson Shannon Dirmann said:

“The Governor opposes tearing down these historical statues and has instructed his staff to look into all relevant laws to determine the legal authority we have to stop it. We need to preserve our history to remember what we’ve learned and how far we’ve come. This is political correctness run amok. What’s next? Maybe we can edit our history books too, and then burn all the books we disagree with.”

Good on you, Bobby Jindal.
