When George P. Bush handpicked Douglass McDonald, an Ohioan, for the job of “Alamo CEO”, we knew he was a Yankee. We didn’t know he was a Texas hater.
“I think the Alamo Defenders were accidentally trapped in the Alamo and would have fled had they known more volunteers weren’t coming.” This quote is attributed to McDonald by Charisma Villareal, a member of the Alamo Defenders Descendants Association.
Anybody who’s watched any version of “The Alamo”, whether it be the John Wayne movie, the popular Disney “Davy Crockett”, or 2004’s $100 million blockbuster, knows that Lt. Col. William Barrett Travis informed the defenders that no more reinforcements were expected to come and, while if he drew a line in the sand with his saber is disputed, what is not disputed is the fact that he gave any man the chance to leave with honor. Every man. Every single defender chose to stay and fight to the death.
They died for Texas.
They died for liberty.
Douglass McDonald is a disgrace and should not be anywhere near the Alamo, much less in charge of the “Reimagine the Alamo Project”.
