KCTV5: Andrew Jackson statues in Jackson Co. to get plaques after voters reject their removal

Check the tag as the Legislature approved as language for plaque. . .

"In 1826, the Missouri State Legislature named this County after the hero of the Battle of New Orleans in the War of 1812 – Andrew Jackson – nearly three years before he became the nation’s seventh President. Almost two centuries later, we hold a broader, more inclusive view of our nation. Jackson’s ownership of slaves and his support for the Indian Removal Act are part of his history. The Act forced Native Americans from their home territories so that white settlers could live there and triggered the Trail of Tears, a 1,000-mile march resulting in the death of thousands, including an estimated one-quarter of the Cherokee Nation.

"This statue of Jackson reminds us we are on a path that, in the immortal words of Martin Luther King, Jr., bends towards justice. In turn, we must acknowledge past injustices to help us create a greater nation built upon humane policies to light our way and the way of humanity everywhere.

"You may be entering this revered building today in a pursuit of truth or justice. Welcome. Your own history is still being written."

The mere mention of mlk supposedly makes everything all right now, Jackson owned slaves legally and mlk raped women but somehow adding his name to it makes it a ok....idiots.

All the shit going wrong in KC with record crime, undriveable streets, $60 million (or more) in debt,an airport that apparently can't be built and this is our problem? Great way to deflect Lucas. Try addressing the real issues of the city instead of manufacturing a boogy man to show the rest of your community that you're gonna get even with whitey over. Unreal

Lol TKC Commenters can't even be happy about a plaque with a nice message of compromise. You all seem so miserable. Lighten up.

Geez! "Compromise!" Idiots that came up with this crap are the reason that we have worning labels that say "This bag is not a toy. Placing it over your head could result in death." *facepalm*

It's a compromise. It should be removed. Indians are now Native Americans & Slaves are now African-Americans, & both are American Citizens. It's offensive to them because it's presence mocks their struggles. In fact, it has no other function. It can be removed without harm or loss.

Fuck that 11:56. Frank White should be removed for being a racist dumbass. Yes Jackson was an asshole but another asshole (and a racist one at at acting unilaterally) doesn't trump (intentionally used that word to tweak the libtards) that. Had Frank White put it to a vote he might have had success but instead he went the blm cancel culture route and it bit him square in the ass.

PAY YOUR DAMNED TAXES THIS YEAR FRANK AND DO IT ON YOUR OWN!

Maybe they should add to the plaque
"Jackson's name has been associated with Jacksonian democracy or the shift and expansion of democracy with the passing of some political power from established elites to ordinary voters based in political parties. "The Age of Jackson" shaped the national agenda and American politics.[146] Jackson's philosophy as president was similar to that of Jefferson, advocating republican values held by the Revolutionary generation. Jackson took a moral tone, with the belief that agrarian sympathies, and strong states rights with a limited federal government, would produce less corruption.[147] He feared that monied and business interests would corrupt republican values." wikipedia

In an effort to purge the government of corruption, Jackson launched presidential investigations into all executive Cabinet offices and departments. He believed appointees should be hired on merit and withdrew many candidates he believed were lax in their handling of monies.[160] He believed that the federal government had been corrupted and that he had received a mandate from the American people to purge such corruption. Jackson's investigations uncovered enormous fraud in the federal government, and numerous officials were removed from office and indicted on corruption

Relations between Indians and Americans increasingly grew tense and sometimes violent as a result of territorial conflicts. There had developed a growing popular and political movement to deal with the issue.

In his First Annual Message to Congress, Jackson advocated land west of the Mississippi River be set aside for Indian tribes. On May 26, 1830, Congress passed the Indian Removal Act, which Jackson signed into law two days later.

The act specifically pertained to the Five Civilized Tribes in the South, the conditions being that they could either move west or stay and obey state law, effectively relinquishing their sovereignty.

Jackson, Eaton, and General Coffee negotiated with the Chickasaw, who quickly agreed to move. they frequently bribed the chiefs in order to gain their submission. The tactics worked, and the chiefs agreed to move.

a plaque of 1/32 truths does not help, it coddles a 1/32 baked narrative.

JAckson had three adopted sons, 2 were indian. He acted as guardian to 8 other orphaned children.

12 presidents enslaved people during their lifetimes. Of these, eight held enslaved people while in office.

There have been 45 presidents, so a little more than 25% owned slaves.

Burn the declaration of independence!
Thomas Jefferson's wife, Martha, was several years dead when he set off on this path, fathering at least six children with Martha's enslaved black half sister.

Col. Richard H. Pratt founded the first of the off-reservation Native American boarding schools.
The Carlisle Indian Industrial School, founded by the Civil War Lieutenant Richard Henry Pratt in 1879 at a former military installation, became a model for others established by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA).

NONE of the people "protesting" and defacing Jackson's statue could tell you a thing about him or even place his presidency within 100 years.
Catering to the lowest common denominator has become the daily activity of cowardly politicians who can't seem to understand that the demands of low-information mobs never never end.
These phonies are suddenly "traumatized" by a statue that they've walked by hundreds of times previously without so much as a thought.
How about some adult leadership to get us back to addressing and maybe even solving some real 2020 issues and problems?
Sad.

Proposed addition to the plaque: "Andrew Jackson is also famous for being the founder of the Democratic Party. Its history is still being rewritten."
