If it triggers you, it's alright to smash it. You don't even have to ask.

It was Gilgamesh before it was Noah. This was when Adam (Adamu) was with His first Wife, Lilith..

See?

Even religion™ gets re-written to fit an agenda. When Adam was with Lilith, it was written: "In the beginning was Adamu and Lilith, created from the same dirt..." So they were "EQUAL" well the turds of that time, 'The Quorum™' re-wrote it (changed History) so the female was subservient. Eve NEEDED a bit of Adam to get going...

So if 'they' can do it with religion™ why not regular history?

even smashing it could be considered art to some...

I really don't care either way, it was just using the word "art" seemed like a new argument.

Those who sculpted the statues, would likely agree that their work is indeed art.
I just wonder if they all made those statues due to their incredible hatred for the black man, or perhaps they did it out of love of the craft?

I assume the artists were commissioned to make the sculptures, and probably well paid.

Not a decent reason to smash the art.

All this anti-Confederate hysteria started when Dylann Roof opened fire at a church 2 years ago, killing people, and posted a picture of himself on Facebook with a confederate bandana. That's when the Left's bandwagon witchhunt LUNACY began. They were fine with it 20 years ago, 10 years ago, 5 years ago, but soon as it became a, "I'm SUDDENLY offended by this" BANDWAGON to jump on, that's when liberals started pretending to be "offended" by it. Fake ass disdain. Now they think they're "virtue signaling" by having statues taken down and other non-sense.

I'm in my thirties, until I was in my early teens I thought the confederate flag was the official KKK flag. (It was through pantera that I learned what it meant to people in the south)

I know the two are separate things (confederate flag and the kkk), but don't fool yourself, this association in peoples minds is not new by any means.

How many here would like to destroy Podesta's statue?

You know the one, it's called the arch of hysteria.

I think it's pretty stupid to want to remove old statues, but I don't think it's a left dominant issue.

I don't think everyone was fine with it 20 years ago. People just put up with stuff when they think they can't really do anything about it.

Do you think blacks in the South were fine with Jim Crow laws? They were not, but they didn't think they could do anything about it, so they put up with it for many years. It takes one brave person, or a small group of brave people to say "Enough! We don't have to put up with this!". Then more people start to feel empowered.

Empowered to destroy statues?

someone to stand up, climb a ladder, tie a rope around a statue, and have an angry mob pull it to the ground, because the laws in that state were made in such a way that an ignorant governor could not just have a knee jerk reaction and remove all the confederate statues in the state.

The law seems to think that is a crime, not some form of "justice".

We also frown on Vigilante justice for the same reasons.

Many Americans were on the Confederate side, during the Civil War.

They lost the war, but they remained Confederates.

Many generations later, it remains, a mindset.

Being depicted as a bunch of racist thugs, by the media, that are defending slavery and hatred of non-whites, is just nonsense. It's about their past, as nothing to be proud of, and it's being treated as trash.

Slavery was not just Confederate, it was in every part of the Americas, and Brazil had twice the slaves America had, and for much longer, too. Slavery is not exclusively an American issue.

I am making a prediction that this monument war will backfire on the democrats in 2018 and cause a lot of lost votes.

Add it to the fake russian collusion and other fake trump stories and i see the republicans gaining house and senate seats in about 2/3s in the 2018 elections.

Empowered to remove symbols of a history of oppression. I'm not talking about illegal destruction. I'm against that actually. I'm talking about the peaceful protests and petitions and calls for the government to move the statues off government property. There has been a lot of that happening. I'm saying that the reason everyone is doing it now is not because everyone was "fine" with the statues before and now all of a sudden they aren't. I'm saying they were never fine with them, but now they feel empowered to speak out.

This entire "debate" is beyond ridiculous. I simply refuse to engage...

Maybe we should erect a statue of the Sandy Hook shooter right in front of where the event happened. Him standing tall holding the guns he used. I'm sure the kid's parents would be okay with it. Why be mad at a statue, right?
