Group Wants Statue Of Sam Houston Removed


The Sam Houston statue has been at Hermann Park since 1925, but a group that calls itself Texas Antifa has started a campaign to take down this and any other landmark that bears the name Sam Houston.

The statue has been a site to see for nearly a century and for some people, it's a site they want to see for years to come.

"Honestly, I think they should keep it up. Yeah," Nicole Nelson said.

But Texas Antifa group members want the Sam Houston statue gone.

On Thursday, the group posted on its Facebook page saying, "Texans agree the disgusting idols of America's dark days of slavery must be removed to bring internal peace to our country."

The group also suggested Mayor Sylvester Turner should back the removal of the statue, because of his ethnicity and political affiliation.

Turns out Texas Antifa is just a small group of trolls.

Antifa does not speak for the State of Texas!

I do not think Sam Houston stood for slavery. He stood, fought and died for the independent of Texas. The monument should not come down .

Sam Houston, also was forced to resign as Governor of the state of Texas because he refused to sign off on Succession and refused to take an oath to the Confederacy.

OMGEEZ!!! Leave our history alone .... if we dont learn from our past we are bound to repeat it!! Any parent can have a discussion with their child at any time and explain what some of our forefathers did that wasn't or was right ... but do not remove the statues!! Politically correct has gone way too far when we start removing statues and changing names of schools and their mascots .... come on people!!

Texas Antifa is made up of a load of crybaby fools who dont understand history...largely due to their lack of intelligence. If things like this is all these people occupy their free time with, they should do themselves a favor, and check out of this life, because this is pathetic.

They are obviously communists - as are all the rest who want to erase or lie about history in the U.S.- it's straight out of the Marxist playbook used in so many other countries around the world. They put forth the idea that the country's history and historic figures are bad, then proceed to replace it with something new. Here they're using slavery and slave owners as an excuse. They're at work right now in Sweden trying to change its history and culture. For example,Swedish history has been taken out of the public school curriculum and replaced with, guess what? Islam. Don't be fooled into thinking they're fools or crackpots - they know EXACTLY what they're doing.

People with jobs don't have time for the ridiculous BS.. Removing monuments wont bring peace because the rest of us will hate your guts for doing it.

I agree witrh all of the comments here.

If they don't like that monument they are more than welcome to leave the country and try that BS with ANY of the other countries.
