Im all for the removal of Confederate statues

Pre Lincoln presidents though? No, thats too far, and not fair to them.

What about Lincoln himself?
He was a racist.

Everybody is a racist..............were going to have to get rid of ourselves. Lets see everybody has prejudices those people have to go to. Lets see pretty much every country on the planet has had some form of slavery............they gotta go to. Wow..........nobody left but the animals. I'm good with that. If we as a species cant get our collective heads out of our arse, then yeah let the animals have the planet...........we don't deserve to live on it.

It's about time.

I can't wait to see the demolishing of the Washington monument also. (might as well add it) It should be pretty cool. I wonder if it will be controlled explosions or a really long rope and some horses or tractors.

A country walks a dark and dangerous path when it starts to erase it's own history.

We need only look at China's cultural revolution for that.

HELP ME UNDERSTAND:
Why does it bother other cultures and nationalities that I would dare say a slaveowner like George Washington is not a African American hero.

Do you honestly believe they would let us name a park in Mt Greenwood... Fred Hampton Park.

Do you really believe they would let me go into Lincoln Park and have a statue of Louis Farrakhan,Jesse Jackson or Huey P Newton.
The answer is a resounding NO!!! #thebuttnakedtruth

Linky

How does he know they wouldn't let him have those statues up? He can start a petition to have those statues up in parks. See how much support he will receive. The city probably will be willing to do that.

BTW how is he far-left? Pretty odd to call a pastor far-leftist.

a reply to: ketsukothat is some really good stuff there ket, A lot to think about.
Give me a moment to slip my cap on.

I'll Agree with what you say until you say

" Without those laws, they would have to actually compete with other businesses rather than pay for the government to wage lawfare on their behalf. "
But would they? I think not. They control so much of the wealth already that they would just buy up the competition, which they are already doing, until only the very few own everything and competition would be completely out the door.
I see no future for us in a corporate world. None. If you do can you please tell me about it, can you please explain to me how you think that world would run if we were people had no say over how big corporations run our lives I just don't see it

All you white people can expect to pay reparations for slavery soon.
If you disagree, you are a Nazi and can be stabbed.

Fun times ahead.

Thank you George Soros.


Please read my post carefully.

Stop with the Soros boogey man. It discredits you in discussions and people from your side and people from mine desperately need to be able to talk to each other. I single you out here because you're typically easy to talk to even in disagreement.

This call for removal is wrong in my opinion and won't gain support like for the removal of Confederate monuments. Washington and Jackson were not traitors to America. They were our Founding Fathers, wrong as they were to not think of Africans as whole people.

There is something to be said for reparations as well. The generations of slave owners and their living to this day descendants were able to build massive amounts of wealth off the free labor, while slaves even after being freed were denied all ability to earn wages. This is why so few black families have generational wealth and instead have generational poverty.

That's not to say there isn't white generational poverty or that it's impossible to escape poverty for black people. We need to honor our treaties with the First Nations and we need to figure out a way to pay back the free labor that built this country and made so many wealthy.


Black people have plenty of money, we just choose to spend it all on rims and Jesus pieces... All reparations would do is inflate the cost of Chrysler 300s and platinum jewelry. The black community in the US generates about $1 trillion in purchasing power every year. Unfortunately, we are consumers, not makers. We don't own anything, nor do we understand building wealth. We were on the right track, but lost sight during the civil rights movement when we pushed for integration and political power. Segregation forced us to own our businesses and do for self. Unfortunately, black leadership convinced black folks the white man's ice was colder and we abandoned those principles and our community so we could integrate. We ignored economic power and we still ignore it to this day.

Yes, 40 acres and a mule would have been nice post civil war, but we didn't get it. It won't happen. We have all the tools we need already, we just choose not to use them.


The truth in your posts are very refreshing, thank you.

Individual choice is the key.

Why just the statues?...their families must be arrested, their property seized.

Well, it's happening. The Alt-Left's goal of destroying America continues with the latest attack on our history. Read it and weep, fellow Americans.

Pastor Wants Presidents’ Names Removed From Washington, Jackson Parks Over Ties To Slavery

I'm so ashamed of you alt-lefties!


Pastor is just following his Bible,



Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: -- KJV, Exodus 20:4


Someone should tell him, though, that there are other religions in the U.S. of A.

The U.S. Flag will be the next target.

It's based on George Washington English ancestral family crest.




Look at the Black Bird on the top. The U.S. Eagle maybe ?




Inside the shield is the flag of DC

I would like to send out my support for this particular gentleman's request to remove any and all naming, monuments, parks, schools, and landmarks that can be associated with our founding fathers.

I strongly urge Chicago's mayor to allow this to take place.

I would also like to send my support to the fine people of Chicago and especially to the members of this particular church.

I hope and pray that you will FULLY SUPPORT your good Reverend in his quest to put at ease the African American community and get rid of ANY and ALL reminders of slavery no matter how big or HOW SMALL they may be.

I am willing to help you in this purging of the dark times this beautiful country of ours had once bestowed upon your people.

Help me, help you. So for the foreseeable future, when the collection plate comes into your vicinity DO NOT not adorn it with the currency of the evil slave owners. Allow me to help ease the pain of having to see these slavers. Please let me take the burden from your good Reverend. He should not have to endure the suffering, humiliation, and reminders of slavery while counting the donations. Seeing the faces of Washington, Jackson, and even Franklin on each bill staring back at him mocking him with their white faces smirking would be far too much for the Reverend to handle.

I will shoulder this burden for him. Doing so with great disgust and white guilt while performing my services at no cost to the church.

Please send those evil paper slavery reminders to

All this will lead to is the Country voting even harder for Trump next time around.

In reality these same US hating, history changing Lefties were using the system to get monuments, displays and anything they didn't like out of sight. They lost so many elections that they are now turning to fascism in the streets to keep furthering the same agenda.

Anyone who feeds into this, or allows this to happen, is a complete idiot.

What happens after this?

The white house should be painted, cause it's racist?

How about get rid of Xmas?

Or how about the flag itself? I mean America is racist, right?

Some people in power now have an army of idiots to use, you don't think they aren't going to turn them to the next thing?

Society will fall.

What comes after that?



I think statues are not enough!!

They are going to have to start changing the names of the confederate states!!!

Even without a smidgen of confederacy anywhere, there are still the names of the infamous states that harbored slave traders and owners, burned into the subconsciousness and DNA of every snowflake and race baiter.

I think even the United States of America screams conflict.

Why do you have to advertize that the states are united?

What happened?!

I just saw him on Carlson.

He's not really into what he says.

He used an example of throwing the tea into the harbor and how the people said, why you throwing our tea into the water?

Tucker said, well we weren't a country then. We are now and people just can't rip down stuff they don't like.

So it was lame.



ETA; i hope they ban Alabama Slammers, they are too damn good.

Is he an Isrealite Pastor? Because Exodus is Old Testament...

EDIT: And I doubt anyone is treating Washington or Jackson as an idol to be worshipped...

I wonder if that is the actual plan? No different from the agent provocateurs in the 60's. Dump and blame all this on the "left" so that Trump will win again.

You think the Left planned on losing so many elections so that they are only left with getting down and dirty in the streets?

No that is not what I was saying. I was talking about the Right and the government planning this.
