    McConnell Campaign Ad

    I just watched Mitch McConnell's latest re-election advertisement. I can say with certainty that it will resonate with Kentuckians and puts Amy McGrath in an uncomfortable position, she having just recently supported the removal of the Jefferson Davis statue from the statehouse (something that I approve of, incidentally.) Nationally, mobs being allowed to tear down statues of George Washington or U.S. Grant is only going to help Republicans. Are these people stupid? Do they even know what they're protesting, or is this just an opportunity for destructive individuals to have some fun?

    It's shit like this that pisses me off, and it should piss off everyone who would like to see Trump and/or McConnell defeated. I can't stand "Moscow" Mitch and am willing to give McGrath a chance, but unless she comes out strongly opposed to rioting mobs and at least gives lip service to supporting the police I don't think she has a chance. Her pro-choice stance is enough to hurt her in this state, she doesn't need all this other shit on her plate.

    Here's the McConnell ad I referred to:

    i would think it's some of all of the above. it's totally an opportunity for destructive people. some people are legitimately protesting what they have a problem with. some people are upset with the system and want to protest, but don't really know how to go about it. and a lot of people are stupid and just do whatever they are told.

      They burned a statue, of an elk. A 120 year old elk statue. I'm as a loss for what sort of racism/white supremacy/what the actual fuck a God damned elk statue could have represented. But I'm sure it will come out any minute now. Were there any Confederate elks? Wait, is the Elk's Lodge a kkk outfit?

      I'm so sick of the hysteria.

        The only way this would make any sense is if these were secretly Trump supporters, knowing that liberals would be blamed for all this. I don't believe that mind you, I'm just saying that that makes more sense than destroying Grant, Washington or elk statues because racism.

        I got a sinking feeling Trump will walk his way into a second term.

          well the statue also says "oink oink". maybe they just don't actually know the difference between an elk and a pig. maybe they also don't know the difference between an animal and a statue and they thought they were having a good old fashioned hog roast.

              tearing down of statues has to do with erasing a countries history to bring in a new one. this is straight from the kgb playbook and has also been used throughout history. i don't think many of the people causing such destruction understand what they are even doing. or know their own history.

                    This is the rational way to do things.

                    In nearby Calloway county there is a Robert E. Lee statue standing in front of the courthouse. Why? I don't know. Lee has no connection to the Commonwealth Of Kentucky or Calloway county. Kentucky remained loyal to The Union during the Civil War. It was paid for by the United Daughters Of The Confederacy in the early 1900s and prominently placed on public grounds. It does not now nor did it ever belong there.

                    So on August 8th (a date that is celebrated locally, that being when word of the Emancipation Proclamation reached west Kentucky) a group of faith leaders, business owners, teachers and judges signed the following petition to have it moved (not knocked down or burned or anything.)

                    Fellow residents and friends of Calloway County, we offer this witness as pastors and faith leaders in our community. Acknowledging the high esteem in which the town of Murray and Calloway County have been held for our friendliness, we pray that we will continue to embrace and exude that attribute as we work together for the welfare of our community, even as we go through moments of tense disagreement on certain matters of importance. This message pertains to the controversy and divisiveness in our town and county surrounding the statue imaging Robert E. Lee on the Court Square, and also to the deeper issue related to it. We do not believe this to be a partisan/political issue at its core, but a human one.

                    We offer our voices from a place of peace, grace, and desiring what we believe is in harmony with the gospel of Jesus Christ and for the betterment of our beloved community. When we were baptized into Christ and made our professions of faith, we publicly aligned ourselves with Jesus of Nazareth, who was anointed by the Holy Spirit in his ministry to bring good news to the poor, release to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, and liberation for the oppressed. With God’s help, we believe it is our role as followers of Jesus and faith leaders in particular to resist evil, do no harm, and uphold the dignity and value of all people, because all are made in the image of God. This calls us to go deeper than what is often inscribed on the surfaces of historical objects, which often highlight the positive attributes worthy of honor, memory, and love, such as the laudable sentiment expressing “loving remembrance” on the statue in downtown Murray.

                    Still, we seek to go deeper so that we might learn by listening and seeing the harm that has been done and continues to be inflicted upon persons of color from symbols like Confederate flags and monuments. The consistent witness from our black neighbors is that these symbols are received as the celebration of racism and hatred. We cannot promote the message that “all men are created equal,” a central tenet to the founding of our great nation, while continuing to hoist a symbol that reveres a movement which fought to undermine that very idea.

                    Therefore, it is our conviction as leaders in the faith community that the Confederate statue would be better suited at another location than its current placement on the Court Square. Well-reasoned cases have been put forth for its relocation to the Bowman cemetery or on the grounds of Fort Heiman, where both the historical significance and loving memorial could be maintained. Meanwhile, we also acknowledge that even if the statue is removed or relocated, this is far from sufficiently addressing the problem of racism. Combating racism is more than setting (or re-setting) symbols within their appropriate contexts, even though we believe doing so is a step in the right direction. This can’t be merely a box to be checked so that we can move on. The path toward racial justice, equity, and equality is arduous and calls us to come to terms with the sins of our ancestors even as we seek to appropriately remember their virtues. We admit that many of us are just getting started in this journey.

                    We call for peaceful dialogue in our community and we challenge our communities of faith to offer safe spaces in which we can learn together about racism and how it is expressed both in explicit and implicit ways. We call on our community leaders to hear the concerns of those who less than a lifetime ago would not have been permitted to partake of the water fountain at the base of the monument. Furthermore, we ask these leaders to respond and lead justly in such a way that we are communicating by our actions as well as our words that we truly are the friendly community we long to be, where all are welcome in the peaceful pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness. And may all people of faith do our part in living into God’s expectation that we “do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God.

                    There are no plans as of yet to move the Lee statue, but the process is well under way and I have no doubt that it will take place in the next few months, maybe a year.
