SHOCK!!! TAGGERS SCRAWL 'SLAVE OWNER' ON STATUE OF ANDREW JACKSON OUTSIDE OF DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY COUNTY COURTHOUSE!!! EXECUTIVE FRANK WHITE CALLS FOR ICON REMOVAL!!!



To be fair, local media has been daring activists to target this local landmark for the past month as they've constantly pointed out the problematic legacy of this former Prez.

Fox4: Andrew Jackson statue vandalized outside Jackson County Courthouse

This was a bold move considering that the tribute stands right across the street from Downtown KCPD HQ . . . Update: Police report two men have been arrested for the vandalism.

Deets:

"A spokesperson with the Kansas City Police Department said officers responded to the scene. The vandalism comes during a time when there’s intense public debate about statues honoring Confederate generals and slave owners."

Update:

Jackson County Executive calls for removal of Andrew Jackson statues



KANSAS CITY, Mo. – This week, Jackson County Executive Frank White, Jr. has been discussing the issue surrounding the statues of Andrew Jackson with fellow elected officials and working with staff to plan for the removal of the statues. The County Executive had intended to address the issue and recommend removal of the statues to the County Legislature during its meeting on Monday. In light of the statue in downtown Kansas City being defaced this evening, the County Executive has decided to share his thoughts and recommendation at this time in the following statement:

“One month ago, today, George Floyd was pinned to the pavement of a Minneapolis street by police officers. Like others across the country, those police officers had taken an oath to serve and protect everyone in their community, including Mr. Floyd. Tragically, instead of upholding that oath, these officers chose to use the power given to them as public servants to kneel on the legs, back and neck of a man as he narrated his own death at their hands. Mr. Floyd repeatedly said he could not breath. Mr. Floyd pleaded for their mercy. Mr. Floyd begged them to get off his neck. Ultimately, Mr. Floyd used what little remaining strength and air he had left in his body to call out desperately and chillingly for his deceased mother. However, as we all know too well, his pleas for mercy, kindness and life were not enough to save him. Even after George Floyd’s heart had stopped beating and life had left his body, those officers continued to pin his body to the pavement, with a knee on his neck, for nearly two more minutes until paramedics arrived. Mr. Floyd’s story and fate are sadly not unique, but our nation’s response to this most recent tragedy has been.

“In the month since George Floyd was tragically murdered, I have been inspired by the diversity of faces, voices, and ideas that have come forward and demanded we do better. What once could be described as a small minority pleading for change, has grown into a broad and diverse chorus of voices no longer pleading, but now demanding equality and making clear they will settle for nothing less. I am hopeful that we are seeing a true shift in the minds and hearts of people regardless of their age, race, gender or political affiliation. As we move forward, we must acknowledge the role that racism plays in our community and our responsibility to take action, which may sometimes be unpopular, to ensure everyone feels safe, feels welcome, and ultimately, is treated equally in Jackson County.

“Countless men, women and children come through the doors of our courthouses every day. And every day, racism and discrimination are staring them in the face. Statues of Andrew Jackson – our country’s seventh president and county’s namesake – stand outside two of our courthouses, public buildings where we want and need people to feel welcome. Yet, they are greeted by a man who owned hundreds of slaves, opposed the abolitionist movement and caused thousands of Native Americans to die when he forced them out of their homeland for white settlement. As long as these statues remain, our words about fairness, justice and equality will continue to ring hollow for many we serve.

“For these reasons, and in the interest of public safety, I am recommending that we remove these two statues. To accomplish this goal, on Monday, I will respectfully ask that the County Legislature form a special committee and begin holding public hearings immediately to discuss the removal of these statues, to receive input from members of our community, and to ultimately pass legislation authorizing the removal of these statues. Pursuant to the Rules of the Legislature, the decision to create the special committee and subsequent assignment of Legislators to that committee will ultimately be decided by Chairperson Galvin. I will ask that the Chair seriously consider, at a minimum, naming Legislators Williams, Anderson, and Finley to the committee. These three Legislators have been vocal in their concerns about the statues and have been passionate advocates for criminal and social justice reform throughout their respective time in elected office. I would also like to acknowledge Prosecuting Attorney Jean Peters Baker for reaching out recently to begin these discussions. I welcome the opportunity to work with the Legislature and fellow elected officials to find a better home for these statues where their history can be put into the appropriate context for us to learn from, but I am convinced that home is not in front of our courthouses.

“Let me be clear – we can never erase history. It is already written. But we don’t need symbols to remind us of the decades of oppression endured by people of color when that is the very thing we are desperately trying to dismantle and heal from today. Like all great counties, this is an opportunity for us to change and evolve together, for the better.”

Well was he a slave owner? If so...he’s got to go! Statues are art. The can be taken down and thrown away like every other piece of art. If your offended, kill yourself. You’re the problem.

“Want to save our monuments? Let’s get a movement going to replace any statue torn down during these riots with a new and more sturdy statue of Donald Trump,” Trump Jr. tweeted.

“The nonsense would stop instantly,” he added.

That's a good idea but I think we should restore our LOCAL history and just call it Bo Jackson County.

Seriously. He's an all around good dude and made history in KC.

Just a thought.

@8:36 nailed it. Frank white needs to be voted out. Taxes continuing to rise without proper procedure are way more important than statues.

Fire Gail Beatty! SHE HAS SHIT FOR a brain. Lucky to have her my ass! Change the name of Jackson County while their taking down the statue and change the name of the Courthouse, too for continuity.

BLM is absurd.

Why does anyone take them seriously.

They will be forgotten November 4th once their usefulness has passed.

Blacks are too stupid to comprehend and too greedy to care that they are the forever sock puppets of the democrat plantation.

Fuck Frank White.

Does fucking White have a statue at Royals Stadium? I'm sure if someone spray painted it, he would be screaming racism.

Motherfucker never paid his property taxes after making millions with the Royals. The previous corrupt Jackson County Executive had to make White's house payment.

Andrew Jackson was a great American General and President. His led his troops to defeat the British invasion of the United States during the War of 1812. Jackson was ten times the man Frank White has ever been.

Whites have no rights under Black rule. All history of whites must be eliminated per racist black leader direction.

Folks better read about the recent history and genocide of whites in South Africa.

Shameful politicians resentful of significant historical figures when they are braying jackasses who only screw things up. This way they don't get the spotlight on their incompetence. I hate to say it but incompetent black politicians have killed many a fine city. Now it's KCMO's turn.

Kohl said...

To be fair, Andrew Jackson was a slave owner. He also committed genocide. No, this statue does not belong here.

TOP PHOTO -- REVISIONIST HISTORY

This statue of Andrew Jackson was dedicated in the 1930's, as the County is named after our 7th President. Among other things, Jackson:

Served as a General in the U.S. Army.
Represented Tennessee in the U.S. House and U.S. Senate.
Served as a Justice on the Tennessee Supreme Court.
Jackson helped defeat the British in the Battle of New Orleans, and helped secure the annexation of Florida from Spain.
Jackson's supporters founded the Democratic Party.
Jackson prevented South Carolina's attempt to secede.
In 1835, Jackson became the only president to completely pay off the national debt.
Jackson was married to his wife for approximately 34 years.
During his lifetime, Andrew Jackson was an exceptional man who served his country and played a pivotal role in shaping what is today the United States of America.
For these crimes (according to SJW dimwits like Jean Peters Baker, Frank White, etc.) his memory must be banished from public places. HOW LOW CAN THEY GO???

If they remove all the statures then slavery never existed so get rid of them all!

I'm no fan of Jackson OR Frank White but the statue is out of date. Our county should have torn it down years ago.

As an 80+ ex Marine reservist (No false flags here. My unit [thankfully] did not get called up during the Viet. war.), I miss my father, a Navy vet of WWII. At the same time, I am grateful he did not live to see our so-called leaders, at all levels, allow the country he loved and fought for turn into a third world shithole run by anarchists.

After the peace treaty had already been signed.

He was a terrible president & a terrible person.

Jackson was the last president to balance the budget and he won his struggle with Biddle and shut down the Bank of the U.S., the Federal Reserve of his time. Any man who can stand up to the bankers and win has qualities that more than compensate for owning a few slaves. Pro tip: the bankers want to enslave the entire human race to their usurious schemes. Andrew Jackson did alright.
