Once praised by Nancy Pelosi’s father, The statue of Jackson and lee removed under cover of darkness, a Limerick

Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee

Nancy’s father did praise mightily.

Times indeed now have changed,

PC crowd more deranged.

The ANTIFA creates a melee.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s father, the late former Baltimore Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., once lauded Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson at a monument dedication ceremony in his city over half a century ago.

According to The Baltimore Sun, the statue, first erected in 1948, included a dedication ceremony of prominent city politicians like Pelosi’s father who led the municipality at the time.

At the dedication, D’Alesandro said of the monument, “Today, with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions.”

That was then,

this is now

The statue  was torn down and removed by Baltimore authorities under cover of darkness Tuesday night Aug 22 -23
