Leftists Purging History or Al Queda in America

RE: Leftists Purging History or Al Queda in America
That protest really backfired for the white supremacist, now everyone is going to be removing those types of statues. Any towns that wanted the statues for historical value won't even want to keep them up.

As some commentator noted, this whole thing stopped being about statues when scumbags started parading around with swastikas.

Yes! Just like their beloved President they excel at digging their own graves.

I don't think the existence of these statues is a problem. The real problem is the display on public land, which makes it seem like these figures should be heroes. Move the statues to a civil war museum instead so people will shut up about the historical significance argument.
I don't believe you. Get over it.

A slavery museum would be more direct!

I wonder how many of the "concerned " southern patriots will pony up the money to preserve them on private land . My guess not one of them will spend a dime . It's never been about the statues it's just an excuse for racist  assholes to act like racist assholes

I just don't think we should get into the territory of forcing towns to take them down by law, I like what is happening right now, towns standing up and saying we don't want these.

They need to be a warning from history, not part of everyday life.

... and especially not as a reminder that many would just as soon fight to the death defending that evil in a day and age where the same blacks are still subject to discrimination.

At that point it becomes a warning: if we ever gain the upper hand ...

I really don't care. The night before they were all in collared polo shirts as if it were not medieval Ireland mob hunting down a hunch back but a frat party at Notre Dame defending the football team quarterback after being accused of slipping the cheer leaders roofies.

That's the real import -- the lightning-rod ain't the lightning.
