Lincoln didn't care about slaves per his public addresses to congress. He wanted money from the south, plus backtaxes.

Any of you actually want to talk about the topic of the thread???

About WHEN these Confederate statues were put in place...and what was going on during those times???

Or do you all just want to attempt to dance around the issue?

You do understand that the civil war was based on money and states rights right?


The states' rights to make money exploiting slave labor? I also realize that there has long been a concerted effort by apologists to make secession about anything *but* slavery which is foolish revisionist bunk.

Should I post text and links to some of the Confederate states' Declaration of Causes? Many of them lay out in gory detail the racist aspects of the whole affair.

I'll help you out...for those wanting to attempt to re-write history.




“A geographical line has been drawn across the Union, and all the States north of that line have united in the election of a man to the high office of President of the United States, whose opinions and purposes are hostile to slavery.” SOUTH CAROLINA DECLARATION OF CAUSES FOR SECESSION, DECEMBER 24, 1860





“We hold as undeniable truths that the governments of the various States, and of the confederacy itself, were established exclusively by the white race, for themselves and their posterity; that the African race had no agency in their establishment; that they were rightfully held and regarded as an inferior and dependent race, and in that condition only could their existence in this country be rendered beneficial or tolerable.” TEXAS DECLARATION OF CAUSES FOR SECESSION, FEBRUARY 2, 1861

The statement was" Most civilians have no honor" That's how,no depth of character to even have the capacity to extend the idea forward,just lashing out at the way of things for what they want at the time emotionally.
Damn the Constitution,nationalism of any kind for socialist, activism,they have communist flags and masks when they feel so emboldened, otherwise they are SO filled with conviction of their faith they RUN and play victim when confronted.
AND yanking down with ROPES isn't relocating jack it's a social attack.
that is OBVIOUSLY what I take umbrance with,not nominal behavior.

Forgive us for not wanting to try to draw conclusions AFTER the fact.

Like DECADES later and an manufactured boogieman.

They been there for a very long time.

Seems to me if they hated all things racist they'd move, and kick the states out of the union.

After all ALL Things RACIST must be destroyed!

You act like minorities had the power to remove these statues forever.

The Civil Rights Act was passed in 1964...that is only 53 years ago. Only in the past couple decades have minorities actually started to gain equal footing in terms of political power in this country.

53 years...and your whole argument is "why is it taking them so long to complain about these statues".

Pathetic.

It didn't...these cases have been in the courts for decades.

The difference is, the cases to get these removed are finally being won in courts...and now the White Supremacist are mad about it.
