Protests in Franklin, Ohio over Robert E. Lee Monument Taken Down in the Shadow of Darkness

Ohio was a Union state during the Civil War, but as per terms of surrender the stipulations that were met was a promise to honor all Veterans of both the Confederacy and the Union troops equally as American Veterans.

Millions of Americans on both sides lost their ancestors in America's bloodiest battles, right on our own soil.

That's why the outrage is brewing in Franklin, Ohio right now over the removal of a Confederate Monument which had been in place since 1927 to honor those who lost their lives.

Officials from the City Council ordered the memorial to Robert E. Lee, the brave Confederate General who served during the Civil War, in the middle of the night Thursday without any notice or warning to residents.

That monument has sat at the intersection of Dixie Highway and Hamilton-Middletown Road since 1927, hence the name “Dixie” Highway to pay respects to the Southern Line and many in Ohio who were divided as some relatives fought and died on both sides.

A group of locals gathered said their show of support had nothing to do with race and everything to do with history which they feel is trying to be erased by marxist oppressors.

The group carried both Confederate flags and American flags and signs reading “We want our monument back.”

The ongoing gaslighting and race baiting by the media continues to push this nonstop debacle of infighting over history, something that's fueling anger in every side of the debate.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">There are more than 1,500 public symbols of the Confederacy across the country. It&#39;s time to take them down. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; SPLC (@splcenter) <a href="">August 17, 2017</a></blockquote>

The Southern Poverty Law Center and other minority rights groups continue to publish lists of every monument in the United States, a total of 1500, which is causing more racial harm than anything they've ever defended against in the last 30 years.

It seems as if there's an obvious and clear cut plan to cause a new civil war in America amidst protests and violence from left wing Antifa and Black Lives Matter who are clearly well funded to show up everywhere across the country with mace and new gear to assault legally permitted marchers who are Trump Supporters.

This never ending battle of false narratives is a Communist infiltration into America, and many people aren't fighting back to protect our history.

The Ohio region has four individual Confederate Monuments, and they're all being targeted thanks to the SPLC.

The first memorial is to Confederate Capt. William C. Quantrill, who's grave is marked with a memorial in Dover in Tuscarawas County.

Capt. Quantrill was originally buried in Kentucky, but his remains were moved to Dover in 1887.

Another monument in Columbus is located at the Camp Chase Confederate Cemetery which marks the site where 2260 Confederate soldiers are buried. The monument was erected in 1902.

A Confederate monument was erected on Johnson's Island in Lake Erie, north of Sandusky as well, which was built in 1910 and marks the location of a former Confederate prison site.

More than 200 Confederate officers are buried in a cemetery on that island, according to the National Park Service, where a statue of a Confederate soldier looks out over the graves.

In Warren County, where the Franklin monument was removed in the shroud of darkness, a bronze plaque memorialized Robert E. Lee. The plaque was dedicated in 1928.

Just this past Saturday, Duke University made a similar move taking down a statue of General Lee which enraged those in surrounding communities.

People are absolutely furious, and it's only going to further incite hatred in a region which had not seen racial tensions in over half a century.
