The Confederate memorial, which was unveiled in 1914, is currently undergoing dismantlement and removal from Arlington National Cemetery. Regrettably, it has fallen victim to the recent wave of Critical Race Theory Cancel Culture Mob. Originally intended as a symbol of reconciliation, serving as a peace offering from the Union to the defeated Confederates, this memorial has now been desecrated, tarnishing the final resting place of southern soldiers.
Disagreeing with this decision, Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin plans to relocate the monument to the New Market Battlefield State Historical Park in the Shenandoah Valley, as conveyed by Youngkin spokeswoman Macaulay Porter to NBC News. Numerous House Republicans have expressed their disagreement with the recommendation made by an independent commission, asserting that it exceeded its authority by advocating for the removal of the monument.
The congressmen contended that the monument “does not honor nor commemorate the Confederacy; the memorial commemorates reconciliation and national unity.”
“The Department of Defense must respect Congress’ clear legislative intentions regarding the Naming Commission’s legislative authority” they wrote in a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.
The demand for the removal of Confederate soldiers’ remains from Arlington Cemetery as part of cultural cleansing is inevitable, given the rise of Culture Jihadists.
A clear example of this can be seen in Memphis, Tennessee, where city leaders not only demolished a massive statue of General Nathan Bedford Forrest but also exhumed and relocated the bodies of the general and his wife. This disturbing incident highlights how even the deceased cannot find solace in a society driven by woke ideologies.
