    Racist scum. Black people of New Orleans are dying in the streets cause THIS man decided that his political ideologies to become a 2020 candidate was more important than Black lives. The over $2 million in City Tax Dollars spent on this rape of American history could have been spent on recruiting and training more Police or used to fix the Federally funded/repaired flood control system. Yes, thanks Mitch for you dedication. Is it any wonder that under your father's administration (Moon Landrieu), that the Fischer Projects became such a drug infested gang haven that the New Orleans Police dared not tread there without an excessive show of force? Oh, and one more thing there, Mitch. When are you going to take down that statue to that Plantation Slave Owner, John McDonogh, in Lafayette Square across from the Old City Hall (Gallier Hall)? You know, that building where you threw your big "donors only" soirée the night that you vandalized the Robert E. Lee Monument. You stared right at it getting our of your limousine. Who cares that Mr. McDonogh is called "The Father of the New Orleans Public Schools" and that the Landrieu family has revered him for generations. Take it down Mitch!

    This clown mayor is a pussy-whipped wimp who runs over the cliff edge with the rest of the lemmings.

    Erasing history, huh. Can I write it, I got stories I can create. I want to write that Custer was Jewish, Martin Luther King Jr. was Mexican, and Jennifer Lopez was a Bolshevik.

    Fact 68 percent don't want the removal of monuments and I am one of them. Let's protect history and show future generations the struggles of our young republic

  7. dave loth September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    dumb man, the constitution gave us all the right to fight federal tyranny and this piece of shit wants us to believe the civil war never happened. Okay, it never happened, where can I buy a slave? you dog shit for brains liberal

    If we only had more such forthright and graceful men.

    Robert e. Lee was anti secessionist who thought leaving the union was a terrible idea. He never owned a slave and freed the slaves held by his wife's family. The people of that time in America just felt more loyalty to there states before they felt loyalty to the central government. Anyone who says Robert E. Lee stood for slavery and the oppression of African Americans is unaware of the historical and cultural pressures of the time these men were living in. P.s. Guess who else was a traitor and rebel to his nation……George Washington.

  10. stan kub September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    Okay so following this rational we should take down George Washington's statue because he was a slave owner and this little girl may not be inspired by his life, Should we use the five-year-old-girl-inspiration-test on everything we promote. This is silly, kids don't care about statues anyway they care about who is on tv. Why doesn't this tool of a politition actually do something productive for the African America community and take down the real effigies that hurt African American kids; rappers who promote sex drugs and violence. You all are so fucking dumb! Yes, take down the statues so I can go on with my day acting out values that hurt my race and that I learned from the dumb shits I see on tv.

    Of course he would say these things, he is negro not White. He is a mongrel abomination.

  12. Larry B September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    Lincoln, after the Union victory, told black leaders that blacks and whites could never co-exist peacefully.

    by the way, this man needs to be president!!!!

  14. S B September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    If you take em all down and get your way, then what?

  15. ryan0348 September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    Im waiting for the media to devote a couple hours to a historian to explain the civil war to people again.

  16. Edwin Ramos September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    We must protect history so it doesn't repeat again. During the US Civil War both sides had slaves and. Other sides were racist. The reason why there was a war is because the North did not want slavery to expand to the newly adquired territories and in that way making the south / democrats stronger economically and politically. I love history and we must preserve it and not act like Nazi destroying books or monuments

  17. Generic Scout September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    Sure the monuments are being used as objects of practically worship by Neo-Nazi's But do you want these Neo Nazi's to go up and MURDER PEOPLE? To tear down these pieces of stone means REAL PEOPLE WILL DIE. It's like if some asshole govt BANS the AMERICAN FLAG which causes people to get pissed off and riot killing people. We'd go the fuck? The USA is seens by some circles as mega terrorists but the reason is regardless. People are dead because of a new change. So what did we gain by the change?

  18. Runaway Batman September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    Robert E. Lee was a gentleman's gentleman. The North was the aggressor in the Civil War, and of course, they owned slaves! Grant had slaves throughout the war and was reluctant to set his slaves free after the war. Sherman also owned slaves and was a pyromaniac who burned Atlanta and committed other brutal acts! I WANT HIS STATUE REMOVED! The North did not wear a white hat and the South did not wear a black hat. It was the bloodiest war in history with good guys and bad guys on both sides. Taking down Southern monuments is denying my right to free speech. It is unconstitutional! I like what Judge Judy said about the law – "The law does not give a rat's ass about feelings!" The radical minority does not care about a 156-year-old CIvil War; they want black power and they are coming to everyone's neighborhood!

  19. autigers2010nc September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    Actually idiot Landrieu General Grant owned slaves not Robert E. lee. This idiot libtard, democrook needs a bullet between his eyes!!! I am sure he and his immoral sister are for abortions, and queers!!!

  20. David Polk September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    Someone commented that Robert E Lee was a "great American". He may have been a great man, I won't argue that point, but he was not a "great American". He chose Virginia over the United States – making him, perhaps a great Virginian.

  21. Scott Pomeroy September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    Never remove our history or it will repeat

  22. White Krack September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

Raise your Confederate Battle flag and tell your story we can be bigger stronger make a good fight be a rebel in the night revolt America make war

  23. Confederate Texas September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    This guy managed to convince and brainwash an entire city into erasing history, lee never step foot in Louisiana, the war never about slavery, never was, thank you douche bag for erasing history and may god have mercy on your soul

  24. Reefresocotias September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    Except they were patriots. Traitors to the United States but patriots to the Confederate States. Just as the U.S. betrayed the British Empire.

  25. Michelle Austin September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    right or wrong, good or bad, you can not undo the past. It is what it is.

  26. Bobby Cratchet September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    Yep. Blame the KKK and enslavement of black people on the confederate soldiers. So effing stupid. Is he not aware of our founding fathers? Ever see how many slaves they owned. While removing the monuments is a smart move his speech was not.

  27. The Devil's Advocate September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    the guy is an idiot, stupid cracker has benefited from his kkk roots his whole life

  28. The Movie Wolf September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    If democrats want to get rid of their own history, I guess it's ok, because there will be nothing left but Republican history.

  29. Jack Beretta September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    Every predominantly black liberal city ultimately fails. (Like it or not, it's just the truth) New Orleans will be no exception. This mayor is a fool. Tourism has accounted for 40% of New Orleans tax revenue. His town has become one of the highest crime cities in the nation. Yet he's spending precious resource money on removing statues for political gain. Meanwhile the severely under staffed police force has given up on traffic violations because of high robbery and murder crime rate. Search this information for yourself! Why would ANYONE want to risk their life going to this high crime city anymore? In a nut shell, this city has become a cesspool for crime. Don't bother going there if you're smart.

    Bullshit. They fought for their interpretation of the constitution.

    Mayor is a total arsehole, a traitor to The USA, destroying the history and fabric of America under his Cultural Marxist destruction, he should be hung for treason !

  33. Salty Admiral September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    If you actually listen to what this man is saying, it is impossible to disagree with him.

  34. Alex Leach September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    Amen brother amen

    What an awesome speech!

  36. Matthew Coy September 23, 2017 at 11:47 am

    I find the lack of empathy in this country quite disturbing.
