What will happen to our civilization (past, present, and future) if we refuse to come back from the Wokeness infecting our ability to not only see clearly, but to say collectively the most powerful word in the English language? That word: No.
All the white men we honor, who built and established our civilization, will be erased.
Crews Begin to Remove Controversial Statue in San Jose: The city says the cost of taking down the statue, including traffic control and heavy machinery, is $450,000 and it should be gone by May 4, NBC Bay Area, April 18, 2023
After more than three decades of controversy, the Thomas Fallon statue in San Jose is coming down.
The city council voted unanimously in 2021 to remove the statue and on Tuesday, crews with jackhammers started that process.
The 1,200-pound bronze sculpture depicts Captain Thomas Fallon raising a U.S. flag in San Jose on what was then-Mexican land. Ever since the statue of one of San Jose’s first mayors went up at Julian and St. James streets, it has been controversial—with some saying it represents racism and oppression.
Crews began the process of removing the statue from its pedestal, something James Dominguez and his tribe fought for years to see happen.
“It’s like having a statue of a tyrant in the middle of San Jose. We’re trying to move forward from this, not move back,” said the member of Muwekma Ohlone Tribe SF Bay Area.
Gregory White works near the statue and is also glad to see it will soon ride off into the sunset.
“It represents racism, it represents genocide,” said White. “It represents parts in history that, of course, they need to be remembered, but not be celebrated.”
Others fought to keep the statue to remember a significant moment in history when San Jose formally joined the U.S.
The city says the cost of taking down the statue, including traffic control and heavy machinery, is $450,000 and it should be gone by May 4.
Once the statue is removed, it will be placed in storage.
Being a white male who helped expand the United States (for his posterity) is now not only not worthy of celebration, but a reminder of racism and genocide. Oh, and oppression.
When did a statue to a veteran of the Mexican-American war become "controversial?"— Jefferson Davis (@Jeff_Davis1808) April 19, 2023
The same day "Confederates" became controversial, I imagine.

How long until Mount Rushmore is destroyed at this rate?
If we don’t learn to say “no,“ not long from now.
We are running out of an America to defend…
