The Dems have gone insane.

If this keeps up it is almost certain that Trump and the Republicans will stay in power.


I can't stand Trump but even I will vote for him if the other choice is what we are seeing.

This is what happens when you can't question anything from the Left or you are a racist or bigot.

Good for them.

I hope they keep it up big time as it will guarantee the GOP will win in 2018.

Germany has zero statues of Hitler. Yet they teach all their citizens about the horrible things he did. The same will happen here and nothing will be erased from our history

What the founding fathers did was free us from the English and found America and give us the rights we enjoy. So if those are horrible things then you should leave America.

Ran across this earlier and thought this to be the right time to pass it along. The writer makes a pretty good case for his question.

Why Won’t The Alt-left Terrorists Take Down The Statue Of Hillary Clinton’s Friend, Klansman Senator Robert Byrd?

The men that fought for the Confederate States of America were not Hitlers. Big difference.

These Confederate soldiers were honorable men, and deserve to be remembered for their valor.

have you ever actually read what some of these military men were up to during the war? There were some brutal battles that these people lead. They ordered their troops to slaughter people. Not just on the battlefield, but entire towns is full of people who did not want to fight. If these people did half of what they did back then today they would be locked up in prison for war crimes. If you were in the same room as them you would be dominated by their presence and cowering, hoping they did not decide to punish you for some arbitrary or imagined offense. It seems a lot of people in the south don't realize that we were raised on fake history. These statues are the retelling of those stories where the south suddenly became the heroes. Just like we were raised to honor Christopher Columbus.

Where was the outrage over these statues in the 8 years Obama was in office?

It is our history, for better or worse - our history.

We need to own it instead of hiding it.

Taking down confederate general statues (traitors to the United States whose statues were only put up to intimidate the African American community) has very little to do with the founding fathers.

Of which yes many owned slaves during the founding of our country but the founders in the north eventually chose industrialization over slavery. Which caused them to create laws that would eventually abolish slavery. Which in turn caused the south to secede and eventually go to war over slavery.

Tldr. Most founding fathers eventually fought against slavery and we have every reason to celebrate their statues. The slave loving confederate statues not so much. Unless you support treason in the name of slavery of course.

The drama is on the part of those who want to take down statues. Oh, so offended. Oh, such evil confederates. Ok, move the statues off of public land and that should do the trick. Now, it seems that Joan of Arc and Christopher Columbus are on the list as is Stephen Foster. Do the protesters even know who Joan of Arc was? Likely not, as they seem to have limited vision. Teddy Roosevelt committed some sin, so he is on the list, too. Dublin must be razed as it was founded by Vikings who were the biggest slavers in the dark ages. The founding fathers owned slaves so remove all reference to them, also.
As we take this to it's logical conclusion, who were the people who sold the slaves to dealers in Africa to be resold to the English slavers? Africans, of course. The tribes fought one another and the captives were enslaved. Then, they discovered, like their fellow travelers the Vikings, that there was cash in slaves so the started selling them off like cattle. There were slaves there before the English and there are still slaves in Africa. Who to blame? The tribes, of course. MLK's tribe probably sold slaves to the slavers. His statues must come down because of his evil forebears. Harriiet Tubman's tribe likely sold slaves to the slavers. Down she comes.

Read that with a high pitched little girls voice.

For example, your summary of what historically happened for a large part is wrong.
