James Neighbors, Founder of the grassroots volunteer organization, Overpasses For America, released a statement regarding the removal of historic statues across America.
“As we have all seen recently, there has been an unprecedented amount of protests and riots regarding historic monuments across America.
While these statues may be found offensive by a fringe, but vocal minority in this nation, to most citizens of this great land see them for what they are.
Reminders of a time gone by that nobody wishes to revisit. They are a reminder of villainy and heroism, of valor and misdeeds, of sacrifice, and of struggle.
It has been often said, but apparently forgotten, that if you do not learn from, and remember history, you are doomed to repeat it.
In the end, the sad irony of what the statue foes are achieving is the exact opposite of what they claim.
We have to ask ourselves an important question. Do we really want to erase that part of our history, for fear of repeating it?
Or do we remember all of our history, both good and bad?
There is however a certain sort of statue that no freedom loving human on the entire planet should ever want standing, yet there are many monuments to true tyrants here in America.
Some examples of those are in Seattle, Los Angeles, New York City and Chicago.
In Seattle, Los Angeles and New York City there are statues to infamous Communist butcher, Vladimir Lenin.
In Chicago there are statues and schools named after Jane Addams, who was declared by Congress to be a traitor to the United States.
Every last one of these monuments to traitors and Communists should be torn down and melted so they can never haunt this world again.
As well, President Trump ran on “Law and Order” and it is time for his supporters, We the People to stand up and demand Law and order.
The leaders of the seditious groups such as Antifa, Neo-Nazis, Black Lives Matter, the Ku Klux Klan, and the Black Panthers should be arrested and put on trial for their many crimes.
America is a nation of laws, and rioting is not free speech. We have the right to PEACEABLY ASSEMBLE, not to cause riots and mayhem.
So with all of that said, I call on all peaceful Americans to assemble on street corners and overpasses across this nation, and in a single voice, declare “We want LAW and ORDER”.
This nationwide stand will begin on August 26 and will continue every weekend until the hate groups that haunt our streets demanding destruction are disbanded and the healing of the divide can begin.
Everyone who participates is encouraged to take pictures and video so that social media will be swamped with the unified call for Law and Order.
Those who wish to make this stand should keep a few guidelines in mind when planning a a Law and Order rally.
One, make certain your location has a sidewalk, as sidewalks are protected Free Speech areas.
Two, you only need to bring American flags and a sign with large letters that says LAW AND ORDER NOW!
Three, for talking points should the media wish to interview you are simple.
We the People demand the investigation and arrest of all ring leaders of the organizations that are resulting in riots across the United States.
We the People demand an investigation into the funding sources of these organizations, and subsequent arrests and charges for those individuals.
We the People demand the return of law and order, where justice is blind, and the guilty are prosecuted regardless of their station or position in society.
And lastly, gather all the friends and family you can and bring them with you. Spread the word at work, church, and social media.
It is time for the Silent Majority to end the silence and say to the world that We the People demand Law and Order, and an end to the chaos.
