I'm in the 60657.

Always nice to see insight from posters who actually live in the areas where the events actually take place.

You have to wonder about the intelligence of somebody burning a statue.


What's to wonder bout ?

We are witnessing the full blown zombie apocalypse and instead of shouting 'brainz' they been shouting 'racist'.

My ancestors were enslaved by the Romans a few centuries ago. I want all of Rome bulldozed as reparations. And outlaw the use of Roman numerals; I,V, and X trigger me.

It would appear that the rule of law is dead. Lawlessness and selfishness rules the day! At this point, I just can't see things getting better until after it gets MUCH worse....


This is what happens when the media not only gives a free pass to violent provocateurs like ANTIFA, but openly encourages it.

Yea, why would people go after the statue of the man who ended slavery and was one of the first Civil rights leaders?


I asked that and agree a KKK type is very likely but I recall somewhere seeing people claiming to be Antifa say all of the memorials to anybody white, even Lincoln, had to go. No link just a recollection. History says people will do stuff like this againsttheir own interest blame the other side as I am sure some here know already. Seems I recall a couple of the Mosque fires being set by one of it's own members.

Most people in the south DO NOT hate Abraham Lincoln.


Correct. Southerners understand that if Abe had let the south leave, the world would have been communist actually (and NAZI's are socialist/commies too IMO). By staying together we became even stronger. Freedom for all makes sense and ending the bad stuff of enslaving another human being is being a part of freedom for all.

Very intelligent people saw our little experiment as workable and many geniuses like Tesla and Einstein wanted to move here. Our legacy was to make ALL men and women FREE PEOPLE. But with that freedom comes the hate for us from those who would subjugate you and I. They want us back as minions.

So the police state has failed and the US is now descending into anarchy.
It's as if there are multiple powers that be and they are at war with eachother. Anarchy is winning so far.
Or maybe there is only one power and police state has failed or anarchy is their next step in achieving the police state.

It's sad that people are destroying historic monuments. History is for learning and remembering what we've overcome.. to not make the same mistakes twice.. not a symbol of oppression.

This is what you can expect in a country where only black lives can matter, not all lives.
