Group tries to block removal of Confederate monument

Published as received. Apparently Mr. McCallsiter (or McCallister) doesn’t have spell-check on his Radio Shack computer.

LAWSUIT FILED FILED TO PREVENT LEE SQUARE CENOTAPH REMOVAL

Pensacola – A lawsuit was filed in in State court along with a request for a request for an Emergency Temporary Restraining Order that seeks to prevent the City of Pensacola, Florida from removing the oldest veterans monument in Pensacola in the Nation’s oldest city.

The plaintiffs include descedants, the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Save Southern Heritage – FL, and includes counts including violations of State Laws, Federal Laws and the plaintiff’s Constitution Rights.

The Lee Square Cenotph was erected in 1891 by the Ladies Memorial Association after years of fundraising, on the former site of a Federal fort.

The lawsuit was filed with the anticipation of the City Council voting to take it down, which did occur with the backdrop of an online meeting where residents were prohibited from attending, and many were prevented from speaking to the Council rationalized by the pandeic.

“The City didn’t follow due process and are violating the Plaitiff’s constitional rights” said David McCallsiter, Save Southern Heritage FL General Counsel.

The has been assigned to Judge Gary L. Bergosh.


The Save Southern Heritage has tried to block the removal of other Confederate monuments in the state. I doubt a judge will give them standing in this case.

The press releases on its website are from 2017 and 2016.

The group does have a petition page about the Pensacola’s Confederate monument.

  1. Typos from me are common, so your comment has merit. But I haven’t misspelled my last name since kindergarten. I thought the bar for an attorney would be higher, especially considering he is writing about his lawsuit.

  2. Noting the spelling errors is petty. I do think the decision by the council was legal though, I don’t know. I am happy it is being challenged. It gives more time for truth telling.

    It looks like the 1619 project has taken root in the mindset of the nation unfortunately. We need to be teaching 1776. All this victim agenda is bad for EVERYbody.

    They took this down so the CRIMINALS won’t burn their own town–Plus Studer calls the shots via PNJ and money and influence.

    Next up the national anthem and the stars and stripes.. The Democratic Socialists, on their page have already have made it clear they plan to oppose the Chipley monument and the bust of Jackson and the Ferdinand plaza– Plus demand reparations apart from the legal system. It’s a slippery slope and makes no sense to go along with the cancel culture. I think this blog has made clear where they stand on this though.

    You know why other Americans don’t like the socialist revolution going on and 90% said keep it?

    Because they aren’t stupid and unAmerican and led by the troublemakers and feelings.

    We are governed by rule of law — not feelings.

    “1776” is an assembly of independent voices who uphold our country’s authentic founding virtues and values and challenge those who assert America is forever defined by its past failures, such as slavery. We seek to offer alternative perspectives that celebrate the progress America has made on delivering its promise of equality and opportunity and highlight the resilience of its people. Our focus is on solving problems.

    We do this in the spirit of 1776, the date of America’s true founding.”

    The Woodson Center. Teach this in homes and Escambia schools not 1619 endorsed by the rag the New York Times.

  3. Help! Help! I’m being oppressed. It’s my “Constitional Right” to demand we all be forced to idolize a bunch of Traitors whom subscribed to White Supremacy and fought against our country.
