Representative Karl Oliver

Karl Oliver,

Your comments below have no place in our politics. Whether or not you agree with the decision to remove a the generals' statues who fought to continue slavery, threatening to lynch people over their views disqualifies you from being a political leader.

You must resign.

Karl Oliver's Quote:
"The destruction of these monuments, erected in the loving memory of our family and fellow Southern Americans, is both heinous and horrific. If the, and I use this term extremely loosely, “leadership” of Louisiana wishes to, in a Nazi-ish fashion, burn books or destroy historical monuments of OUR HISTORY, they should be LYNCHED! Let it be known, I will do all in my power to prevent this from happening in our State."

Signed,

Progressive Impact with Future Majority

How this will help

Someone who would say such a thing has no place in our government. Apologies are not enough.
