In the town of Brownsville, Texas, about an hour from here on the border with Mexico, there is an ugly monument to Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy. It was vandalized a few months ago with anti-KKK & anti-Trump graffiti. Tonight the city council will hold a town meeting to determine the fate of the damn thing. Local news interviewed a city council member who wants it removed because ‘it’s like Germans putting up monuments to the Third Reich’. Other than the fact that the monuments are great big fat historic lies, that’s one of the best arguments I’ve ever heard in favor of taking those ugly-assed monuments down.
