Civil War II-- 486: What Next, the Sam Houston Statue?

From the June 10, 2017, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  Armed protesters carrying Confederate Flags defend Sam Houston statue in Texas.  There is fear that the 1925 statue might be removed because of all of this anti-Confederate deprecations.  City officials say it is not under consideration at this point.  Sam Houston did own slaves and that might be grounds for it, however.

I have to enjoy the combination of "armed protesters" and "Confederate Flags."  The armed protesters had permits to carry, but this sure sounds like a mob ready to kill opponents.

I'm guessing somebody at the paper didn't like those who stand up for their heritage.

And, Sam Houston is kind of a hero in Texas.

Of course, I know of certain monuments in Washington D.C., that honor some guys who owned slaves.  And, even Abraham Lincoln did not originally want to free the slaves, just stop the spread of slavery into new states.  Nor did he believe in racial equality.  That will have to come down as well.
