Sons of Confederate Veterans have sued UT-Austin for removal of confederate symbols

A Confederate heritage group sued the University of Texas at Austin on Thursday for removing several Confederate statues from its campus earlier this week.

UT-Austin spokesman J.B. Bird confirmed Thursday that the university had received the lawsuit by the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

Late Sunday night, 10 days before fall classes were scheduled to start, workers at the University of Texas at Austin removed statues of Robert E. Lee, Albert Sidney Johnston and John Reagan. In an email sent to the campus community just before 11 p.m. Sunday night, University president Greg Fenves announced that the statues depict parts of American history that “run counter to the university’s core values.” A statue of former Texas Gov. James Stephen Hogg was also marked for removal.

Bird said the university would not comment on pending litigation but that the relocation of the statues “was handled appropriately.”

    ALL FEDERAL FUNDS SHOULD BE CUT OFF FROM THIS SCHOOL. ANYONE THAT DESTROYS, OR DEFACES ANY STATUE SHOULD BE PROSCUTED. IF THEY ARE ALLOWED TO DO THIS TO THE PEOPLE THAT GAVE THEIR LIFE FOR A CAUSE, THEN ALL MARTIN LUTHER KING STATUES SHOULD BE DESTROYED. TIT FOR TAT.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212 WAS PASSED IN 1952 AND THIS LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED. IT BANS ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO DESTROY US, THAT INCLUDE ALL MUSLIMS.

    5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON, A MINIMUM OF 31 MORE CLOSE TO MILITARY BASES, AND A FEMA CAMP, (SOME STATES MORE), IN EVERY STATE. BUILT WITH TAX PAYER $. TO HOUSE MUSLIMS???

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE. IF THE CAMPS IN N. VA. ARE TO TAKE DC. WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA, AND ALL HIS APPOINTEES, SOROS, HILLIARY, KERRY, FORMER HEAD OF CIA AND FBI, SEVERAL SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES AND THE NEWS MEDIA, HAVE SET US UP FOR OBAMA TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY THE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VA. JUST ACROSS THE LINE FROM DC???????

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    THIS COUNTRY HAD BETTER WAKE UP QUICK.

    I’m with these good citizens……….. We must stop these ignorant idiots that are destroying all that America stands for. I’m with the Confederate Heritage Group… Thank God for these that believe in preserving our history. These that are behind all this chaos need to be put in jail and made to work and pay to have everyone of these statures rebuilt and put back in same place they were before. And all the politicians that are approving the destruction of these monument should be voted out of office and shamed….

  • Ed Watson says:

    Lets see, Megs field in DHI came down in the middle of the night, in SAN our Mayor had a plaque removed at midnight, statues are coming down at night all over the country. What an open and transparent country we have become, one run by ‘the people’ ! ! !
    Folks the fox is running loose in the hen house. HOW MUCH LONGER? Lock and load?

  • Rodney Steward says:

    Removing these statues is only making a bad thing much worse, what’s next, we demand you destroy the the White man’s American flag!!

  • mudguy1 says:

    What puzzels me is that what happened 150 years ago is our history and these statues monuments serve as a reminder of what was fixed. Nobody talks about removing the statues of the ones who in the last 100 years have done more to keep racism going. Why has no one tried to take down al the statues of KKK Robert Byrd in West Virginia. Or of LBJ for saying this. Wonder how many Black People even know about this?

    Lyndon Baines Johnson 1963… “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference… I’ll have them niggers voting Democratic for the next two hundred years”

    Then why not remove the statues of President Wilson. He not only re-segregated the White House and said this. And then the same question how many Black People know this?

    “Segregation is not a humiliation but a benefit, and ought to be so regarded by you gentlemen”

    “The white men were roused by a mere instinct of self preservation … until at last there had sprung into existence a great Ku Klux Klan, a veritable empire of the South, to protect the Southern country”

    “The domestic slaves, at any rate, and almost all who were much under the master’s eye, were happy and well cared for.”

    And then.
    “There are no government positions for Negroes in the South, A Negro’s place is in the corn field”

    Where is the outrage for these men? How many Black People even know that if it wasn’t for the Republican vote the 1964 Civil Rights bill would not have past and KKK Byrd led a filibuster to try to defeat it. and the 1965
    Voting Rights bill wold not have pass but for the Republican vote.
    What is happing today is right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook “Rules for Radicals” And the Democrats are pushing it.

      It’s only white Christian history that they are attacking.

      1. mudguy1 says:

        Nobody in the media talks about the several Black plantains owners that had Slaves.

        1. goldie says:

          No, the media has more well-kept secrets than the mafia.

  • Humble Servant says:

    I would counter sue these clowns for destroying American history. If they feel it is within this countries laws to present a stupid suit like this then I believe it is well within the laws to sue them for trying to destroy American history. Make this a $100M mandatory law suit if perused. Put these evil fascists, racist, homo fobs in court and give them a tongue lashing education to our history, the one they missed in school. If any judge hears a case like this Trump should fire them also. Grow a pair and standup for what little bit of our culture is left.

      Did you actually read the article? These people are suing to keep those statues in place. They ARE standing up for their culture.

      1. mudguy1 says:

        Yes like so many other he is like the saying “Ready, Fire ,Aim”

      2. Rodney Steward says:

        And I stand with them!

          So will I. God Bliss Them.
