Forget the future, forget about real issues and problems.
There's Confederate ghosts lurking about that must be exorcised!
Schools, roads, military camps - all manner of public things named for military figures who briefly fought for independence are now the targets for the SPLC who would like to see them all renamed in the name of "ending hate".
Seems to me more like they're stoking up hate, doesn't it look that way to you?
This is your history folks, your ancestors who are now the targets of the new hate inquisition.
History simply is what it is and we can either learn it and learn from it or forget it and just repeat the same mistakes over and over.
You think this movement will end if they just get rid of things about the Confederacy?
No, it's just the start and will spread to engulf our entire history from 1776 to present.
All of it will be judged unfit and cleansed away - the founding fathers? - slave owners, everyone connected to the genocide of Native Americans from the Plymouth colony to the Mormons in Utah, the railroad barons who used Chinese slave labor to connect the country, the imperialism overseas from the Philippines to Cuba to Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Confederacy is just the beginning folks.
The reason being to make people accept a One World Government they must first destroy everything that binds a nation together; it's borders and It's people (thus unlimited immigration), it's culture, customs and it's history
The SPLC is doing their little part in helping destroy the United States as we know it with their newest ploy in historical whitewashing.
This needs to stop here because if it doesn't it will sweep ALL our history away and with it the memory of the acts that created this country.
Europe is under a similar assault but some places there it is illegal to even criticize immigration policies.
Funny how unlimited immigration is a one-way street.
Not so funny once you realize it's all in the name of ruling the planet through a New World Order.

Just to be clear you're saying that arguing against removing all public traces of the Confederacy is denying someone their civil rights?
I don't know what else it could mean in context here.

Speaking from a Brit. The US has little of it's own history as it is (compared to the grand scheme of things). Why eradicate evidence of the confederacy? They weren't exactly Nazi Germany.. People haven't demolished Auschwitz, people haven't destroyed evidence of what happened in Europe in the 1900's.
Nor have people destryoed or forgotten about the British empire and the slave taders we once were.. but people do move on.
Removal of thought is not the right way to move on.

No one is forgetting history.... The question is, why are we glorifying a bunch of people who renounced there AMERICAN citizenship and killed thousands of US service members.
I will never understand how the same crew who claims to be patriots and "pro merika!"
Then sport the flag of arguably the most treasonous group in American history.
Conservatism is just full of blatant hypocracy...

Hummm. Revisionism is bad? what do you call the historians who research the Holocaust and find it to be unsupported by actual evidence? and reside in jail right now..in Germany? searching for ernst zundel will give you leads to do your own research.
The SPLC revels in the holocaust story and uses it as a club to beat anyone they deem an antiSemite.
