The liberal mayor and city council of the historic city of new Orleans have ordered the city cleansed of part of its rich historic by removing all of the monuments dedicated to Confederacy including the statues of confederate president Jefferson Davis, General Robert E. Lee, and local hero and confederate general P.G.T. Beauregard. These Democrats that have controlled the city for decades and have led it to having one of the highest poverty and crime rates in the nation, and now they are claiming that the city will be a better place without the monuments they say celebrate slavery and racism. Many citizens of the city see it as just another assault on their heritage.
