but its selectively destroying history , thats what im saying
are we going to demolish all of our Scottish statutes and monuments to our freedom fighters against the English because they fought a war against the
No , because that is silly and erasing history is wrong .
Yes they represented criminals and traitors to the Union , but in the eyes of the confederates they were a divided nations of states and they had a
right to revolt against the government and their tryanny right ?
, Cromwell hasnt had his statues removed in the UK and he was a traitor to the crown and killed many men
etc his statutes still stand .
We even have Guy Fawkes statue in the UK and he tried to end our parliament , we learn from our mistakes and our history , it seems our american
cousions well at least a large percentage of them are so inclined to erase that history good or bad and remove it completely from our consciousness
and prevent us from making the same mistakes.
The south and confederate flag wavers are only doing us a favour and reminding us that slavery existed and was fought for.
and that rebellion regardless of the reasons is possible . So go ahead and remove that from the collective memory of the US and the world.
it's their history as much as its anyone else in america, and erasing history is exactly what the nazi party done, as do ISIS
so the so called libertarians for social justice are nothing better than ISIS or the nazi party erasing history to control the future.
Pathetic self entitled assholes
