LaToya Cantrell Unveils A “Peace Pole”, Twitter Lets Her Know What They Think Of It

Yesterday, New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell unveiled the newest civic improvement in the city. Was it a new way to fix the potholes that litter the city? Of course not.

She unveiled a Peace Pole. No, we are not making this up.

The city of New Orleans is rapidly becoming unlivable with crumbling infrastructure. Sure, there may be potholes the sizes of craters in the streets. But we now have a Peace Pole that took four entities to install.

The city thought this new bit of “infrastructure” was so impressive that they actually sobered up Da Destroya and it was actually worth having a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Sorry about those craters in the streets, I guess.

Anyway, Twitter let Da Destroya know what they thought of her and her Peace Pole. For starters, the Peace Pole only worked for a couple of hours.

A common theme of the replies was that Da Destroya was living in an alternate universe. One where the city of New Orleans was a well-governed city with a sober, competent mayor. Instead of what New Orleans actually is.

 

Many other people doubted the effectiveness of the Peace Pole. Let’s just say they weren’t convinced that the Peace Pole would do much of anything to lower the city’s murder rate.

Others were more direct in what they thought of Da Destroya and her Peace Pole.

Da Destroya and her Peace Pole even got national attention.

It’s easier to erect a Peace Pole than to actually do something to improve the city of New Orleans. Especially since the mayor is an absentee drunk, the police chief is incompetent, and DA doesn’t want to prosecute anyone, and the sheriff doesn’t believe in incarcerating anybody. Given how incompetent and terrible the current leadership of New Orleans is, a Peace Pole at least guarantees they’re not screwing anything up even worse than it already is.
