Alabama charges $25k fine for removing Confedrate statues

Alabama Media Group - A north Alabama grassroots organization is seeking to pressure Madison County officials to defy a new state law and remove a Civil War statue from the courthouse grounds in downtown Huntsville.

Under the bill signed into law last month by Gov. Kay Ivey, entities that remove historical statues or memorials without permission face a fine of $25,000.

So the Tennessee Valley Progressive Alliance is seeking to raise the money to cover the fine that would be incurred by the Madison County Commission for removing the statue.

file this under cleaning the oven while the house burns down around you. this kind of "progressive" stuff just helps us all be further divided and conquered - it doesn't feed a hungry child or stop a bomb raining on Yemen or educate anyone about the big picture. it's easier than seeing the picture whole - and it's gonna get us all killed. sigh.
