Alt-Left Hollywood removes Confederate Memorial

The Hollywood Forever Cemetery will remove a memorial to Confederate veterans buried at the site, thanks in part to threats of vandalism, as well as requests from activists, according to a Tuesday report in the Los Angeles Times.

The Times notes that the granite monument marking the burial site was already vandalized on Tuesday:

The memorial is actually owned by the Long Beach chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. The cemetery director reached out to them, according to the Times, and they agreed to take the monument down.

The monument was largely unknown until the Times published an op-ed last week, “Los Angeles has a Confederate memorial problem.” The author actually argued for the memorial to remain, as a reminder that California did not escape the racial problems of the past: “This western memorial, however, will likely endure — as well it should. It serves as a needed corrective to a self-congratulatory strain in the stories Californians tell about themselves.”

    There are some radicals that think you can change history by eliminating all references to the past just like ISIS is doing. But what they do not understand is sooner or later THEY will be forgotten, too.

  • Pete Bundy says:

    What next? Destroying headstones of Confederates killed in battle? And the left has been at this for a while as they want Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn removed from libraries, delete the Dukes of Hazard and their car to name a couple.

    Things, and this for sure, is beyond going crazy. Good grief, this is a cemetery!!!. Where is the United States headed anyway…Isn’t this our history, and aren’t these men allowed to rest in peace? It makes me sick!

    Oaky, remove the monuments to Confederate Soldiers since they offend some people. We should also then remove the name “Malcolm X” from every inner city school and roadway that bears the name as it offends others. Let us also remove the name of Louis Farrakhan from anything named after him for the same reason. Let’s see how far we can take this. We can ensure that schools and roads have names that do not offend any one. Every statue to an remotely controversial figure or event should not be erected until 2/3 of the LEGAL Citizens in that are vote to allow it. The tree huggers would love this rule as NO statue would ever be erected again.

    And the historic cleansing continues…

    Make no mistake. This is a coordinated effort. I have lived in towns with Civil War monuments and I don’t recall them being some sort of gathering spot for the KKK or Nazis. Maybe we need to look behind the shallow news coverage and ask deeper questions. Maybe we should ask why is this suddenly necessary more than 150 years after the Civil War ended. Maybe we should ask whose agenda this serves. There are many people being duped. You and I do not have to be part of that crowd.

    Looks like the media is at it again Taking up the side of the liberals and to hell wit the law abiding citizens of America! Their profession is in the toilet! Along with all the Democrat politicians! Long live Maxine Waters as she swims with the turds!

  • I remember says:

    Those Confederate soldiers, by act of Congress, were US soldiers. Their graves and markers are supposed to be protected BY LAW.

  • Uncle Pat says:

    What has happened to our country that we can no longer respect the men who died for it ? Confederate soldiers were AMERICANS !

      And so it was for 150 years ago until a resident of the WH caused the problems today.
