• David Duke Vowing to Fight For Southern Symbols

    Glad to hear David Duke is getting involved in this. He hits the nail on the head.

    One of the key figures in the fight over the Liberty Place monument in the early 1990s is promising to fight for its preservation -- and the preservation of the statues of Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and P.G.T. Beauregard. David Duke, the former Ku Klux Klansman and member of the Louisiana Legislature from 1989 to 1993, says he's ready to take the city to court if need be.

    "We are definitely talking to attorneys, and we're pulling out all the original suits from years and years ago, and we'll be prepared to do it," said Duke.

    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.
