Removal of Confederate monuments in New Orleans prompted an elected state legislator from Mississippi to write, and I am not making this up,
The destruction of these monuments, erected in the loving memory of our family and fellow Southern Americans, is both heinous and horrific. If the, and I use this term extremely loosely, “leadership” of Louisiana wishes to, in a Nazi-ish fashion, burn books or destroy historical monuments of OUR HISTORY, they should be LYNCHED! Let it be known, I will do all in my power to prevent this from happening in our State.
That’s right. Openly called for lynching people he disagrees with. Do you need to ask whether he’s a Republican?
