The following is a statement from Texas Nationalist Movement President Daniel Miller on the announced Antifa protest of the Sam Houston monument in Houston’s Museum District on June 10th.
When the Taliban gained control of Afghanistan, the world watched in horror as they destroyed centuries old statues and monuments because they did not fit the Taliban’s flavor of religious orthodoxy. The condemnations flowed from world governments.
Yet over the past several years, forces representing another repressive orthodoxy have systematically worked to do the very same in North America eliciting nothing but praise from the media and the followers of that orthodoxy in government and silence from those same governments around the world.
The Texas Nationalist Movement has been made aware of the protest of the Sam Houston statue that has been planned by Antifa as well as their threats to “take down the statue.” We have consulted with elected officials in the City of Houston and the state government and have been assured that this protest from Antifa is nothing more than a stunt and that our monuments and memorials are safe from removal.
On the off chance that someone in Texas government is foolish enough to latch on to Antifa’s desire to erase our history, I’d like to make our position perfectly clear.
The Texas Nationalist Movement will not tolerate it.
Any attempts to dilute or erase our history and culture by the removal of our memorials and monuments will be met with the strongest resistance from the TNM on every front at our disposal. That includes political and judicial means and even placing ourselves as physical impediments to their removal if necessary.
The madness that has gripped the rest of the United States ends at the borders of Texas.
A counter protest is planned. Those wanting to show their support for the Sam Houston Monument are being asked to show up at Hermann Park in Houston on Saturday, June 10 at 10 AM. Wear your TNM shirts and bring your Texas and TNM flags.
