In the wake of the Charlottesville protests, renewed effort was put into tearing down Confederate monuments. While some of the monuments were moved by city governments, others were vandalized by protesters acting on their own.
If we know one thing for sure, it’s that liberals won’t stop until they have completely erased these pieces of history.
Amidst all this hysteria, one Alabama county is taking a different approach. Instead of trying to preserve or remove monuments already in place, residents there recently unveiled a brand new one.
More than 200 people attended an unveiling ceremony for a new Confederate monument Sunday afternoon in Alabama’s Crenshaw County.
The modest stone marker commemorates the “unknown Confederate soldiers” who died in the Civil War but have been forgotten by history, particularly those from Crenshaw County and the surrounding area.
The memorial now stands in a confederate memorial park first opened in May 2015 on private land in an unincorporated area next to Dry Creek RV Park about three miles north of Brantley. It sits among existing monuments, replica cannons and tall flagpoles flying Confederate and other flags.
“That’s why we’re here is to honor our Confederate dead, to honor our ancestors,”

Predictably, liberals were not pleased with the developments:

Local news also covered the story:
Organizers insisted that the new monument had nothing to do with recent events:
Speakers and attendees repeatedly stated that the memorial and ceremony were not responses to the racial discord currently gripping the nation. They said it was just a coincidence that the date of the event was announced online shortly after a white nationalist ran over and killed a woman in Charlottesville, Virginia, following violent demonstrations there earlier this month.
Despite intention, liberals hysterical over symbols of the Confederacy are not open to honest dialogue. Instead, the monument is sure to become the target of vandals. Whether or not its placement on private property can protect it remains to be seen.
