(August 13, 2017) The picture below shows the defacement of a Confederate monument last night in Tampa, Florida.
First, the monument is located on private property owned by a local chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
Second, a Google search reveals no local news coverage or any statement—much less criticism—from a politician.
Third, the county commission voted last month to remove a 106 year old Confederate monument from public property. Commissioner Murman said she voted “yea” in order to “move forward.” Even though she may not have intended her excuse to mean escalation from public to private censorship, that has been the result.
