Meme magic at work.
According to a report by CBS DFW, an unfortunate accident befell a crane sent by Dallas officials to desecrate and remove a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee late Sunday afternoon.
The crane, which had just arrived in Dallas by way of Houston, was seriously damaged on its way to remove the statue in a deadly traffic accident involving a semi-truck.
“Officials said that a crane that was on its way to remove the Robert E. Lee statue at Lee Park in Dallas was involved in a crash that killed one person.
According to officials, a semi-truck collided with the crane at SM Wright Freeway and Linfield Avenue.
Dallas police responded to the accident just before 8:20 p.m. on Sunday. Officials said that the crane had just arrived in Dallas from Houston at around 7:45 p.m. on Sunday.
Officials said that the crane had a left-turn arrow and was turning westbound on Linfield Avenue off of the freeway. The semi-truck ran through the light as it was going south on the freeway and collided with the crane.”

It’s frankly tragic and revolting that a life was lost because spineless government officials decided to pander to a small, depraved subset of alt-left activists in the hope of appeasing the relentless fake news outrage culture.
Texas faces many challenges, including illegal immigration, crime, and Hurricane Harvey, but the Dallas City Council instead chose to focus on allocating resources to destroy symbols of American culture, and someone died because of it.
According to the report, it is still unclear what effect the incident will have on the city’s plans to remove the statue:
Dallas police were on the scene to conduct an investigation. There has been no word yet as to how this crash might affect the timeframe of the statue removal.
Officers were stationed around the statue on Sunday afternoon, waiting for the crane to arrive.
The Dallas City Council voted to remove the statue on Wednesday. The removal was delayed on Friday due to the city not having the necessary equipment.
