I get it.

You like defending Nazis. And Neo Nazis. & All manner of white supremacists.
Good for you.


But let's be honest...

Your comparison is shoddy.



Argument goes...

"They're tearing down Statues.
They're just like ISIS."

Sounds good on paper...

But let's be brutally honest, you're full of it.


A more apt comparison isn't ISIS...
But the Iraqis that tore down and battered Saddam's statue.


"Why", you ask. Knowing full well why!


Persecutor idolising, dangerous philosophy idolising... placed there to intimidate the people who were affected...


That's the be all and end all...


The confederate statues weren't placed there by people who were thinking "in a hundred years, people will need to study this"...

They were placed there to highlight supremacy.



So...

You keep comparing this statues destruction to ISIS...
You compare statues of fascists to antiquities marvels...

Do whatever it takes for you to covertly defend racism...


Your tears are juicy anyways, so I'd implore you to continue.


Just know that we are on to you...

Now flame away and pay each other in the back.


When the next statue of a racist is torn down I'll laugh and cheer all over again.

Confed statues should be there as a lesson in history. Fanatics removing them are neither scholarly nor logical.

The mobs should be jailed as common criminals for vandalism and be made to make restitution.

Ignoring what happened in history does not make it go away.

Why would you applaud my ignorance?

Why wouldn't you try to reason with me and show me the error of my ways?



Too close to home, was it?

The next step is bulldozing Washington DC. Look at all them slave era statues. Then the Left will have you burn all of your paper money because look whose faces are on it.

Commies have been dreaming of the days they could rampage across America desecrating the symbols of its heritage, signifying the fall of the US. Not happening because Trump.

This is where the disconnect is. People are not defending Nazis. They are defending their rights. There is a huge difference. What they choose to do with their rights is moot. It's like if somebody chooses to call themself a Nazi, they are now considered sub-human and don't deserve the same rights as the rest. It doesn't work like that.



Do whatever it takes for you to covertly defend racism...

Really?

Your assumptions are flawed, your hatred is patently obvious, and your lack of knowledge of history is what I would expect from a confused, brainwashed child.

In your mind, EVERYBODY, whether they lived 150 years ago or live today, except for the robots parroting race-baiting garbage heads, is a racist.

There is no explanation for your ideas, and no excuse for not doing your homework before playing the well-worn race card.

I find that people who call others "racist" at every opportunity are typically the biggest closet racists around.

Enjoy your civil war, Skippy. That pepper spray only has so many sprays in it before it runs out.

Not happening because Trump.


But it is happening mate.

Where is your precious statue now?
On the scrap heap!



People will definitely always remember the civil war...

Because the righteous will continue to tear down your statues and the folklore will become legend.

I guess you would support burning books about confederate history and re-writing history books potraying the south as evil right? Careful how you answer this.

And there will be a newer, bigger, shinier statue there in its place as soon as the local people let the lunatics pass through to go on a commie rampage somewhere else.

I see an imperial Japanese flag being returned reverently back to families of fallen soldiers today in the news.

The flag story

I see no difference between the south's atrocities, and the Nazi flag, Japanese Imperial Rising Sun flag, Che Guevara Shirts, and Soviet flags.

Do you?

So your argument is that they Confederates won and are still in power and these people just recently toppled or had toppled those Confederate regimes to run around bashing all symbols of Confederate tyranny over them?

That's where you comparison falls apart. It has been 152 years since the Civil War ended and 53 years since the passage of the Civil Rights Act brought the last vestiges of government enforced discrimination left over from that time to an end.

You can argue that racism still exists, but the nasty truth is that racism will always be with us, from all sides, as long as there are human beings.

Majority of the statues were erected and dedicated shortly after the war.
The statue that was taken down of Lee in New Orleans was put up in the 1870's.

Most other statues were put up in the 20's, which I can guarantee have some dirty money behind them in terms of racism.

But, some statues should remain. The one ripped down of the soldier, who represents pretty much all the soldiers from the confederate side of the war is rather shameful to be honest.
Over 600,000 men collectively died on both sides, brothers against brothers, families against families. It will remain a stain in American history, but it's a stain that should not be silenced, and the men who fought on either side should not be erased from history.

I say, take down some statues, but leave a few up. We don't need hot headed people ripping down statues because they feel like they are protecting the future generations, it's not, educate people instead and let them make the big boy decision if those confederates were racist or not.

Just no reasoning with you judging by your posts I'd think? You seem to be the defender of the indefensible of the left. We can't educate all of you, some are just to far gone a reply to: Hazardous1408

Righteous?

So speaks the crusader mentality. How far will you go? When they point at someone and tell you that he or she is evil because they do not believe as you believe ... they are not "righteous" as you are ... how far will you go?

Ready to load up those cattle cars for the trip to the camps yet?

I'm sure society will be better when people who don't think "righteously" are burned in the ovens and on the ash heap, too.
