The Purge of HISTORY by Tulane University pulled in front of the monument bearing a sign that read “F*** Off Nazi Scum,” and bore the Deputy Mayor of New Orleans, Jeff Hebert, in the passenger seat smiling as if he thought it was all funny. Deputy Mayor Jeff Herbert in passenger seat By: Heather Briggs N ew Orleans Louisiana, once a tourists’ dream spot full of multicultural sites and diversity unlike any you have ever seen. Now, it seems to be a hotbed of Governmental false narratives, a fake race-war, and monetary agendas all being perpetrated by the very leaders that the citizens are supposed to be able to trust to help them grow and prosper. The people of NOLA have been betrayed again and again by the current Mayor, Mitch Landrieu, and his latest attack on the southern culture that makes New Orleans such an amazing place is the targeting of 4 Confederate Monuments. The Liberty Monument was removed in the dead of night by masked men who were later identified as city firemen who later converged in a march to have Fire Chief, Timothy McConnell, fired due to a vote of no confidence as reported by Fire Rescue 1 on May-2-2017. JEFFERSON DAVIS MONUMENT The second monument to go down wasn’t necessarily slotted to go down next but due to the attention the President Jefferson Davis Monument received beginning on Thursday April-27-2017 when the presence of Confederate Supporter, Arlene Barnum, a black elderly Vietnam veteran and descendant of a Confederate soldier became known, Landrieu seemed to make J.D. his personal mission. Mrs. Barnum is well known nationally as a southern heritage supporter and her presence made it very clear that Landrieu wasn’t going to get away with simply removing these statues like a thief in the night. With the appearance of Barnum the number of supporters began to grow and the connections that Landrieu had cultivated in Historical Patriot Arlene Barnum being labeled racist The Jefferson Davis Monument Crew reference to his motives to remove the statues started to become quite apparent as well.
