Then we can agree to disagree.

You assumed I'm a Republican, which I am not. You assume that I'm supporting racism, which I am not. And even if I were, to say all Republicans are in fact racist would be bigotry.

Let's get beyond the innuendo and slander, because if we as a country cannot get past the partisan garbage, there is not much hope. The vandals are a representation of that.

Let's leave the lies like all conservatives are racist to the disgusting politicians who spread the manure. Who are the moral equivalent to the scum in the real White Supremacist groups.

They need to be charged with destruction of public property, for starters.

No excuse for this sort of crap.

That depends on how you define logistics. You can't exactly kill off half a country and expect things like industry or morale to actually exist.

It was your standard Nuremburg Defense. Just following orders.

Even if the official reason differs the definition of rogue nation and traitor remain the same. And the ACA meets both those definitions.

I'm pretty sure though, you dont go to a "peaceful rally" in the spirit of compromise armed with automatic weapons.


Was anyone shot with those? and dont you mean Semi auto?


First off I say what I mean, I have a diverse array of firearms and I know a selector switch when I see one, and two nice try attempting to move past the point I was making....you dont show up to a peaceful rally with firearms all in the spirit of compromise that it seems went over your head?


Some Selector switches have a spot for SAFE. Seen AR-15 selector with just safe and semi on it too. SO is there any way you can be sure it was a full auto?

And Cops show up with weapons at peaceful rallies. why? arent they peaceful and willing to compromise?

I live in Durham and this pisses me off.

The time has past for enforcement of the laws of the land. No one has bothered in quite some time.

I find it unconscionable that the Durham Police stood by and allowed public property to be destroyed and did nothing!

What's next? The burning of the court's building because it somehow represents some injustice and offends the Left's political sensibilities?

If the Law does not investigate and the AG does not bring charges against ALL those involved, directly or as accessories, and try them in a court of law then we can just throw in the towel and call the great American experiment of freedom dead.

It is the law and the fair application of the law that makes this country and it's freedoms happen. It is the very thing that keeps us from absolute anarchy like the toppling of that statue.

A just sentence for these miscreants would be time for destruction, restitution for the cost of repair and REPLACEMENT of the statue.

Didnt lincoln betray his presidential oath of office by breaking 11 laws? At th every least he should had been replaced as President because that was also traitorous according to the law.

They didnt though because lincoln was a useful idiot until after the war when he was shot dead.

Just read my stealth edit, I'm fine with skipping the details of assumptions.

Direct yourself to my points about it, this story, becoming an immortalized piece of history(On the internet).
Address my comments that this doesn't remove viability of history at all.

Racism isn't something that had 'evidence', it's something that was. There are many positive values to come from the Confederate, particularly states rights, but the few negatives there were, or rather, single negative, racism, is enough to supersede that idea as positive all together.

For example it's 'bad' to sympathize with Nazi's(genocide) but this doesn't mean reading through history you cannot find an easy way to understand them through empathy. The same goes with Confederate things, Southerners just haven't caught up with the concept yet. It's as much paraphernalia as a Swastika, and it's in a public space. What you are so graciously calling history and calling out the others as vandals, shows you have a backed horse. I understand your point, it's just wrong because there is an easy flip side to understand why what was done, was done. I don't support it, it's just not 'mysterious' and 'interesting' to me that this happened. If it happened the way you wish(representatives) you might have never found out about it at all.

Technically? No. Lincoln was not a traitor. His actions were done in the name of preserving three country.

Just to remind everyone of definition of treason in the US:


Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open Court.

I'll justify destroying symbols of hate all day long...should have been done long ago.



Does that include books? Paintings?


If they are displayed in a public space as a celebration of a history of hate and local officials are unwilling to remove such symbols...yes...100%.

These things have their place...libraries and museums...not on display on public land.


Last time I checked, libraries and museums were public land, too.

Clearly, you want censorship, so OWN it.

The reasons do not matter. President comitted felonies in office by breaking those 11 laws I have refrenced before.
the founder Wrote in a way for states to leave and they were going to do so legally.(this was before the 3/4th rule was added)

Lincoln was a crooked man.

They don't want it displayed on public land so they offer to place it on display. . . . on public land.

They just don't have the courage to say they want to censor.

Progressive Liberal Fascists want to restrict ANY free speech they don't agree with...pretty much every single campus in America...

Berkeley comes to mind...Progressive Fascists tactics like Antifa (brownshirts) and the media (propagandists) are pure fascist tactics (Hi)tler used to take control and create a Socialistic Dictatorship...like Progressive want to do in America.

Open question. . . . .

Other than confederate civil war figures, what else does everyone want destroyed?

Any carvings?

Paintings of civil war figures?

How about books?

Any books we should be "getting rid of"?

How about films? Any movies to eliminate and ban?

Outlaw Jose Wales?

It started with one flag.

Where does it end?

Lol

According to who.

You specifically complain, complain, complain, libs this, libs that..

It's pathetic imo. Maybe you should realize your own party is the reason your interests aren't being voiced.

And by the way just like nazi's aren't the status quo for conservatives, your constant dribble about libs is also false.

The system is broken, the responsibility for that is equal and also our own fault.


What's pathetic is your fetish for complaining about me complaining. You've been whining about it for pages now. If you have a specific issue with something I said that's pertinent to the discussion here, bring it up. So far every assumption you've made about me is wrong. Maybe you should stick to facts instead of continuing to embarrass yourself with continually whining that I complain too much. You don't have to respond to me, be an adult and skip my posts if you don't like them. Jesus.
