black federal judge halts removal of Confederate mounument at Arlington cemetery | Eastern North Carolina Now

The crews were moving in their equipment to take down the monument honoring Confederate veterans buried at Arlington National Cemetery, when the process was brought to a screeching halt by order of a black federal District Court judge.  Judge Rossie Alston of the eastern district of Virginia, who was appointed by President Trump, issued a restraining order until a hearing could be conducted.

A liberal commission that RINO Congressman Greg Murphy voted to create had ordered the removal of the monument.

The Beaufort County Commissioin adopted a resolution opposing the removal of the monument.  Voting against the resolution and thus in favor of removing the monument were the board's two Democrats and RINO Randy Walker.

An Executive Order issued by President Eisenhower recognized Confederate veterans as American veterans, with the same status.  The Confederate section of Arlington Cemetery was created from the suggestion of President William McKinley and approved by Congress.

The thing that tells me all I need to know is that there are people wanting to remove a monument to reconciliation.

To reconcile is to conciliate or make friendly again. It is to bring into accord as in settling or composing a difference. It is to harmonize, to bring into harmony.

The flip side of reconciliation is agitation, confusion, alienation, and disruption. Other ingredients in this particular issue are disrespectfulness and hatefulness bringing about more alienation and furthering the other negative conditions listed.

Removing the monument to reconciliation from Arlington National Cemetery is a real bad idea.

I made the mistake of voting for Randy Walker in his primary last time due to all the stuff he put up on Facebook about being absolutely opposed to raising taxes. Randy has been a disappointment on taxes and spending his whole term. I won't make that mistake again. It is thus not terribly surprising that he has joined the far left cancel culture against southern heritage.

I knew what Murphy was in his first primary, and was not fooled at all there. He was a spendthrift in the legislature known as "Medicaid Murphy". He has gone on to be a dud of a congressman who has sold out taxpayers to the establishment. I think I saw he has a Libertarian opponent this time, and if so that is how I will vote. Murphy is not fit to even shine Walter Jones' shoes. Walter was a great congressman, I wish we still had him.

Nah, The fact that the title of the OP includes the race of the judge tells me all I need to know.

Cancel culture is an abomination, especially when it is cancelling history. Cancel Culture politicians like Randy Walker and Greg Murphy are beneath contempt, especially since both masquerade as "Republicans". RINOs ia a more apt term for both. Once they went down the cancel culture path, there is no way either of them will ever get my vote.

We have two commissioners who are up for election this time who stood up against cancel culture, Hood Richardson and John Rebholz. Thank you both for standing on principle on this issue.

Greg Murphy also played a role in the travesty by which Fort Bragg is now no longer Fort Bragg. What a despicable skunk.
