Jackson County Voters Decide Fate Of Courthouse Slave Owner Prez Statue

Protesters and vandals sparked this conversation that the Legislature wisely sent to the ballot despite the protestations of the County Executive.

Here's the decision confronting the electorate . . .

Question 2: “Shall Jackson County, Missouri, remove the statues of Andrew Jackson now located outside the Jackson County Courthouse and the Historic Truman Courthouse in Independence?”

Accordingly, check the local news take on the topic wherein early voters consider the impact of removing the mostly meaningless monument to a long forgotten racist butcher . . .

Fox4: Trump not only president on ballot in Jackson County as voters decide fate of Andrew Jackson statues

As always, TKC almost never tells people how to vote and (SURPRISE!!!) the decision is unlikely to improve local race relations either way.

  1. Think about this. They want save owner statues removed, but they are voting for Biden who was against desegregation and Kamala who is related to Hamilton Brown who owned Brownstown in Jamaica. then there is the fact that black slaves owner in this country sold their own family members into slavery. Proof the black people in this country are crazy and hypocritical. So are the white left radicals. Black people are the ones that live off the backs of working people they are the new slave owners and they were slave owners years ago too. But radicals don't even know American history. Very lazy and stupid people don't cry to me I'm not listening to this crap anymore. Let the new civil war begin.

  2. Joe Biden opposed racial desegregation; quote “I don’t want my children attending school in a racial jungle”.

    Joe Biden’s best friend, Senator Robert Byrd, was the Grand Cyclops of the State of Indiana Ku Klux Klan. Joe Biden provided the eulogy for Senator Byrd’s funeral.

    Kamala Harris quoted during the Democrat Party Primary: “Joe Biden is a racist”.

    Democrat Party were the slavers, plantation owners, slave traders.

    Democrat Party was the political party of the Confederacy.

    Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy, was a Democrat.

    Democrat Party formed the Ku Klux Klan

    Democrat Party implemented Jim Crow Laws

    Democrat Party was the Party of Segregation

    Democrat Party interned Japanese Americans in Concentration Camps.

    Democrat Party has a history of racism spanning 200 years.

    Every election the Democrat Party attempts to divide Americans by Race.

  3. Cancel culture at it's worst. Erase history and pretend the world started 15 minutes ago.

    The BLM/Jacobin/AntiFa scum that de facto rule the streets believe that not only does the current Rule Of Law not apply to them, but, that only THEY should effect their own, new, woke, soup de jour extemporaneously interpreted Rule Of Law on any and all.

    The intellectual basis for this nonsense is apparent to anyone with even a cursory knowledge of history, recent and current events and as the citizens chaff under these new powers, they also coalesce and gather strength for what many consider what might come. Bloody constraint.

    Be advised morons, that your Facebook posts, your politics, your comments, your actions will be under revue in the future, when, after there is no more Rule Of Law and ironically, the rules you dumbfucks have insisted upon become the rule of the land, you will be held to account in exactly the impromptu Star Chamber Courts you now support.

    Like Robespierre, you will fall under the blade, no mercy, no quarter and as your head rolls away in the dirt, you will wish for the good old days when the Constitution, enacted and produced by those evil white men, was still in effect.

    Hear the thunder?

  4. Regarding the above blather about Biden changing positions he held 50 years ago, I offer the following from John Maynard Keynes:


    “When the facts change, I change my mind - what do you do, sir?”

  5. Vote to let it remain. Let's have a race riot! Burn Kansas Shitty!

  8. Thems will never be happy (and by thems I mean blacks, progressives, the injured class, the free-shit/free-rent army, and all their white guilt sympathizers). You could take Andy and throw him in the muddy MO, put up a MLK statue (don't forget to pay off the 'family' for the honor) and thems would still piss and moan.

  9. Biden doesn't have to wait for the facts to change to change his mind, just the polls. "Evolving" from one opinion to another as soon as it is convenient to do so is a trick he learned from Obama.

  10. Biden is toast. He must answer the question about packing the Supreme Court before the election. Undecided voters want to hear him answer that question and others, such as will they stop the filibuster. He has no excuse for not answering these questions.

  11. The far left is separating from Biden because he's now stating he is not banning fracking and doesn't want to implement their New Green Deal. Biden's lame balancing act on the democratic tightrope is now getting slammed by a political hurricane.

  12. It is impossible for Biden to please all of the lunatics that make up the Democrat base. Mission impossible.

  13. There's a good chance that if it weren't for Andrew Jackson, this country would be ruled by Britain. For those of you wanting to tear down this statue, since you obviously didn't learn this in school, use your phone and Google up Battle of New Orleans. If you are so inclined, read a book about it, as there are many great works that read like a novel. Perhaps there is a comic book version with lots of pictures. Andrew Jackson may have owned slaves, but he also participated in saving this country from attacks by the British. The statue doesn't honor the man for having slaves, but for soundly defeating the British with a rag tag group of defenders. Tearing down statues also erases history. With every statue torn down, the specter of slavery is lost on society. Pretty soon it will be forgotten, then what will you complain about? I'm forgetting already...

  14. Andrew Jackson fought for and saved this country from her enemies. That used to be considered heroic. Now the only heroic thing a man is allowed to do is wear women’s clothes and lament our great nation’s evil past. Some of us aren’t willing to go along.

  15. 11:49, the battle of New Orleans was a great American victory, but it did not decide the War of 1812. The battle was fought two weeks after the Brits and the Americans had agreed on a peace treaty. Technically the battle was fought during the war since the treaty had not yet been signed by both nations, but it was in no way decisive.

    Democrats have long known about the dark sides of their party's founding President, Andrew Jackson, but have managed to live with them. Only now when the Dems have become the Pander Party do they pretend to be woke about Old Hickory.

  16. Wow! Biden was against desegregation! FORTY FUCKING YEARS AGO!

    Though I'm sure everyone here has the same views about everything they had when they were 27, right? Even though you're 70 now? Sure!

    Just remember what Donald Trump said about you Republicans: "They’re the dumbest group of voters in the country. They believe anything on Fox News. I could lie and they’d still eat it up. I bet my numbers would be terrific."

    So, hold him to it! C'mon! Unless you realize you really are that stupid.

    1. The five or six posters who take turns crushing your skull, you silly fucking monkey! Lol

      You're wrong, but you always are. Everyone knows you congratulate your own dumb posts because you definitely have no friends and no life.

      That's why any more I leave your routine ass kicking to others. You're just not a challenge.

      Poor Chimpy. ;)
