The small town of Newton Falls, Ohio has just declared it self to be a “sanctuary city,” but not one for illegal immigrants. Instead, the town is just a “sanctuary city” for monuments and statues which are being torn down left and right all over the United States.
City manager David Lynch spoke out over the week-end to say that the city will henceforth be considered a “Statuary Sanctuary City” where monuments and statues which are under attack across America will be given amnesty, based on WFMJ-TV.
“The great leaders of our country and Western civilization, though flawed in many ways, have risen to great achievement such as the founding of our nation, the ending of slavery, establishment and protection of our national parks, the establishment of antitrust laws to protect our citizens from overaggressive monopolization of industry, and the discovery of the new world itself,” the city stated in its proclamation.
“These great leaders as represented in beautiful and artistic statuary throughout our nation deserve to stand in a place of honor and respect as a reminder that we, as Americans, can achieve great things,” added the proclamation, which went on to pledge to put together relocated statues “in a place of honor and respect to inspire greatness and achievement.”
Statues of these historical figures will be welcomed in Newton Falls:
- George Washington
- Abraham Lincoln
- Thomas Jefferson
- Ulysses S. Grant
- Patrick Henry
- Francis Scott Key
- Theodore Roosevelt
- Christopher Columbus
This comes as radical leftists have now been trying to erase history by demanding removing tributes to any historical figures they have deemed to be “offensive.”
Washington will be targeted because he owned slaves, for example, and even Abraham Lincoln has come under fire even though he ended slavery. This has not been enough to save Lincoln from the “woke” mob, however, while they claim that that he was not “pro-black” enough.
We applaud Newton Falls for taking a stand against “woke” cancel culture. Enough is enough, and all of this moved way too far.
