ADL Applauds President Fenves’ Decision to Remove Confederate Statues from University of Texas Campus

22 August 2017

ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE — The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) applauds University of Texas at Austin President Greg Fenves’ decision to remove and relocate several confederate monuments from the University of Texas at Austin campus earlier this week. ADL commends the University for going through a thoughtful process in making the determination to remove and relocate the monuments.

Rachel Bresner, ADL Jean & Jerry Moore Southwest Civil Rights Counsel, issued the following statement:

We acknowledge that symbols of the Confederacy bring pain to many, particularly in the African-American community and we commend the efforts taken by the University to reconsider the statues and monuments on its campus and the decision to remove and relocate several Confederate statutes.

In 2015, President Fenves formed a task force of faculty, students, alumni and university leaders to evaluate six statues of Confederate leaders on campus and consider several alternatives to removal. Following last week’s rally in Charlottesville, VA and the violence and hatred on display, President Fenves’ efforts and decision to remove and relocate the monuments demonstrate a commitment to unifying the students and campus community.

ADL encourages any leaders currently considering the removal of Confederate symbols to look to New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s speech on this subject for inspiration, and Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh’s approach as a model.

Hurricane Irma Manipulation: Objectives And Agendas

(Dane Wigington) Hurricane Harvey brought an abrupt and catastrophic end to the 12 year long major hurricane landfall drought in the US. Were climate engineering programs a factor in the Harvey disaster scenario? Available data has already made clear the answer is yes. How much decimation will the manipulation of Hurricane Irma inflict? The US government has been actively engaged in hurricane modification programs for a minimum of 70 years, historical documents prove this fact conclusively. Yet, the power structure controlled circles of academia (and corporate media) continue to fuel total denial of the climate engineering hurricane modification reality, this should not be a surprise. How much decimation have global geoengineering / weather warfare programs already caused? What are the primary objectives and agendas? How much worse will it get? The short video below provides verifiable data to confirm that climate engineering is a reality, and exposes some of the primary objectives.
