A statue of Robert E. Lee was removed from a Dallas park Thursday after the Dallas City Council voted 13-1 on Sept. 6 to have it removed, Fox News reports.
According to Fox 4, it took workers approximately 3 hours to remove the statue and place it onto the trailer which would then transfer it to a storage facility until a decision is made on where the statue will lay to rest.
Police officers with automatic rifles surrounded the area as security.
Sons of Confederate Veterans fought the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue by obtaining a temporary restraining order just as the removal began, however; a federal judge lifted the order.
Protesters clashed in August after left-wing activists called for the statues to be taken down because they are a symbol of ‘racism’.
The Confederacy is a part of our history. The left is pushing for a revolution in this country by taking down monuments or covering them with tarps just like Islamic terrorists do in the Middle East. Where were all of these angry protesters during 8 years of Obama?
