The City Commission has voted, 3-2, in favor of removing and relocating the Confederate War Memorial from the Plaza de la Constitution, the city of Saint Augustine said on Facebook.
I cannot decide at this moment what is worse, the cowards that run the city commission of my hometown of Saint Augustine in Florida, or the cowards and bullies of the Black Lives Matter domestic terror group. The previous generation watched in horror as the Nazis burned the books they didn’t like, and vowed it would never happen again. Well, it is happening again, only this time the Nazis are Black Lives Matter, and the books are statues of anyone and everyone they disagree with. Have you people learned nothing in 75 years?
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.” Thomas Jefferson
Deny it all you like, but America is knee-deep in a second civil war, and like it or not, the Black Lives Matter bad guys are winning. The prize? The collapse of America, the ripping up of our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. The goal? Creation of a Marxist welfare state, run by anarchists, where Communist ideals are enforced at the point of a gun. And our elected leaders, those weak, snivelling cowards we put in office, from the Saint Augustine City Commission all the way to Washington, are letting it happen.
I live in Saint Augustine, the oldest city in America, and today I am deeply ashamed of the cowardly actions our elected leaders have taken as they have betrayed not only its citizens, but every ideal of freedom and liberty I was ever taught to believe America stood for. Shame on you, Mayor Upchurch, and shame on you Saint Augustine City Commission. I say let it all burn to the ground, it’s time to start over.
Cowardly City Commission leaders vote to remove and relocate Confederate War Memorial in Saint Augustine Florida

RIGHT NOW: Roughly 30 minutes after the St. Augustine commission voted 3-2 in favor of moving a confederate memorial from the Plaza De La Constitucion, crews have now put up a fence to place plywood to cover the memorial. @wjxt4 pic.twitter.com/sZ5ypvAgUi

City leaders in St. Augustine will decide the fate of confederate monuments on Monday morning. Confederate monuments have caused a lot of controversy over the years. In 2017, the city council voted to keep confederate memorials and later added plaques to bring historical context.

Action News Jax reported two weeks ago when protesters in St. Augustine demanded the confederate monuments be taken down, standing in strength with those impacted by recent violence.
The monument at Plaza de la Constitucion could be relocated, pending the decision of the city commission. The meeting will be held at 10 a.m. If you would like to submit a public comment, email CityClerk@CityStAug.com before 8 a.m. or call when prompted at 904-293-4330. READ MORE

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 15,500+ people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 150,000+ followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 15,900 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
