Pushing what? Man, seriously, are you stoned? You are really not making any sense. I asked what 'conservatives' could do to stop people who are being labeled as 'conservatives' in the media.
Hundreds of activists gathered at the American Museum of Natural History on Monday to take down the “racist” statue of Theodore Roosevelt and an urgent call to rename Columbus Day. More than 200 people cheered outside the museum as activists covered the statue of Roosevelt on horseback flanked by an African American and Native American on either side and demanded it be ultimately removed. “A stark embodiment of the white supremacy that Roosevelt himself espoused and promoted,” the group explained in a statement. “The statue is seen as an affront to all who pass it on entering the museum, but especially to African and Native Americans.” Activists from the groups NYC Stands with Standing Rock and Decolonize This Place organized the protest to draw attention to the museum’s encouragement of racist tropes, and implored New York City to rename Columbus Day to Indigenous People’s Day.

I've said it before and I will say it again.
"We must preserve our history, good or bad. Destruction of history is the trail head to our own destruction."
How long until someone decides to destroy some aspect of YOUR own history because it offends them?
What next, books about the Civil War should be removed from the library, or burned because they offend someone?
People, , think, before acting out your anger in this manner.
It's 2017, these offensive statues of racism should have been torn down a very long time ago.It's extremely sad that no statues of positive Americans were built.It seems like your history lacks a positive role model for your people and that's something that you 70s on down generation just can't understand.I don't blame you, I blame all the hateful people from the 40s and 50s that deeply embedded its venom inside you to a point of no return.Good luck with your thinking when it comes time for judgment day because you are really missing the universal point of time and history of whats really going on...and I feel really sad and sorry for you.
Thats nice.. Wife just got back from work. She works 2nd at Duke University Hospital, DURHAM, NC.
Got home a couple of minutes ago, was nice to hear the subject was bought up amoungst her co workers for a few minutes this evening , water cooler talk..
Was glad to hear none of her educated African American coworkers agreed with what happened in Durham today.
I feel really sad and sorry for you
I feel bad for you 90's down generation. Most dont know what its like to take personal responsibility, to get your ass lovingly spanked by your parents when you properly deserved it.
Everyone wasn't a victim or a soft little snowflake.
You could drive to school with a gun rack and shot gun in the back of your truck and no one batted a eye or were scared they would get shot.
Lots of shows on TV had moral lessons and it wasnt about who could sex who and back stabbing reality TV drama.
When people were called racists its because they wore white hoods and burned crosses NOT because they disagreed with your politics.
The word RACIST meant something .
Men and people in general were made of sterner stuff.
Its you I feel sorry for.

New York Gov. Calls For Removal of Confederate Names From NYC Streets
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is calling for the removal of Confederate Generals’ names from New York City streets.
In a letter to the Secretary of the Army, Cuomo urged the renaming of Stonewall Jackson Drive and General Lee Avenue in Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn.
Dear Acting Secretary McCarthy: On August 7, the U.S. Army denied requests by community leaders and legislators to remove the names of two Confederate Generals from streets on its Fort Hamilton Army Base, claiming that renaming the streets would be “controversial and divisive.”
The streets – Stonewall Jackson Drive and General Lee Avenue – are named for leaders in the Confederate army who fought to protect slavery.

No, I know that the liberal owned and controlled media reports untruths and has an agenda. Nothing about super human powers. If you do not like what I post don't read it. I could give a f less and at this point you are getting annoying because there is no discussion you are just trying to put me down. Usually a tactic from those who cannot form cohesive arguments and want to try to find a solution and are happier being part of the problem.
