I am shocked. “Remember the Alamo” has been a rallying cry for Texans since 1836. Now Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush wants to change it to a Disney style theme park while erasing the uncomfortable fact that Mexicans massacred Texans at the site.

Furthermore, the iconic statue honoring the heroes of the Alamo is to be taken down to be “placed elsewhere in San Antonio” to further take away from the Texas shrine.

Texans should be utterly outraged.

NewsTalk 1290 editorializes:

There is a plan to change the Alamo, even renaming it, and ultimately attempt to erase the Battle of the Alamo as the defining moment in the Franciscan mission’s existence. The ‘Save The Alamo’ campaign has been launched to help preserve the history of the Alamo. Rick Range, a Dallas-area Alamo Historian and founder of Save The Alamo committee, discovered what is believed to be one of the cannons used in the Battle of the Alamo stored in a barn in North Texas. Range is sounding the alarm over what will ultimately be the descecration of one of Texas, and America’s, most sacred sites.

‘Reimagine the Alamo’ certainly appears to be nothing more than another attempt at erasing our history and our heritage in the name of political correctness. George P. Bush, the current Texas Land Commissioner, is pushing this plan to destroy the Alamo as we know it. Part of this plan includes the removal of the Alamo Memorial, the Cenotaph, which has stood in Alamo Plaza since the 1836 centennial, to a site blocks away.

The plan also calls for rebuilding the original plaza walls, but not with limestone as they would have been over 180 years ago, but with German-made, see-through glass. Bush wants to turn this hallowed ground into a Disney-like theme park. And just what does Bush think Texas, and himself for that matter, have to gain from this controversial plan?

Consequent to the plan’s passage, Texas General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush, whose office is now in charge of running the Alamo, brought in a number of out-of-state planners to design the project. What they came up with was something very different from what its backers originally envisioned. Much to their dismay, the originators of this effort were astounded to learn that the new focus of the Alamo would no longer be the 1836 battle for which it is world famous. In the words of Bush’s Master Planner George Skarmeas, “We cannot single out one moment in time.” Instead the Alamo would be transformed into a multi-cultural hodgepodge of world history. In fact, its very name would be changed. The site would no longer be referred to as the Alamo—instead, it would be known as the San Antonio de Valero mission. And this does not comprise the full extent of the plan’s disturbing features.


Let’s not “Reimagine the Alamo”, let’s REMEMBER THE ALAMO.
