Scott Hutchinson in Mayor Mitch Landrieu's office says the Liberty monument and the statues represent a page from history that shouldn't be forgotten, but shouldn't be celebrated with public statues, either.
"Remembrance, not reverence," is what Hutchinson told the Vieux Carré Commission during their meeting on the Liberty Monument. "Partial or blind history is bad history."
Duke might agree that it's bad history: he likened it to Stalin-esque revisionism.
"Nothing more than Soviet-style cultural terrorism," he said, also likening it to ISIS' destruction of historic artifacts in the Middle East.
