Instead of going for outright destruction, meet these people halfway.


If anyone knew anything about American history AT ALL.

Knows Americans don't get on their knees for someone elses beliefs.

I think they meant like break half the stuff. Maybe rip off just the head or something.

Yea.... because the Jews weren't considered white until after WW2...

Still aren't to every single white supremacists group today..

They are more of an octoroon.


Am I allowed to say that?

Absolutely not, I starred you because it gives me a vicarious, rebellious feeling.

English..(I have to stop here because being English makes me perfect by birth).

I also love burritos. Sushi sucks though.



Everyone knows Burritos are just Mexican Sushi, and that Sushi is simply Japanese burritos.

Yummers!

You and I know that. But how many people that cherish these monuments know all the facts? Is it really a victory of all it really accomplishes is padding the enemy ranks?

I think both sides are being used in a bid to destabilise the country and get ready for regime change.

But I'm being paranoid again.

That can only ever happen in other countries.

It is literally insane that you are right. I tried to logically dispute this and ran out of logic.

I also believe that tower 7 was destroyed by Edgy brah (Eddie Bravo, owner of 10th planet MMA)



Things are weird in this timeline


edit on 25-8-2017 by Jonjonj because: added edgy brah pic

OK, you got me.. I haven't had a burrito in years, but apparently because I have no problem with the Mexican flag, I am now a burrito lover.

So all the Confederate "White Supremacists" killed "Whites" from the North, and they are considered "White Supremacists"?

Yep. The party with a 200 year long history of white supremacy -- The Democratic Party -- is going to destroy the evidence of their slavery-supporting past and trick the Republican party into accepting it as their own.

Republicans would do well to call that out for what it is and insist if the Democratic party wants to tear down their own memorials & tributes to Democratic Party Confederate leaders, they need to take responsibility for them first.

One would think the Democratic Party, itself, is the most offensive symbol of black American oppression there is.

It should really be destroyed first...and voluntarily! Then we can figure out how to best deal with their statues.

Just my .02¢.

Instead of worrying about statues maybe you should be worried about the fact that you're being used by the white supremacists. I originally intended for this thread to be directed to the Alt-Right members of this board. The more I thought about it however I realized that this sentiment also applies to the Leftists. This post from the UTR chat room is what led to this current thread:


If anyone is worried about any of this...I would worry about their sanity and intellect.
If people are paying attention to idiocy...what does that say about them???

Its the leftists...its the right.

I think you are all nuttier than a turd at a peanut festival.

Who would have thought? All it takes for both sides to find common ground is to tell them they're both idiots.

PS moving the statues from court houses and parks to a museum or private property is in no way erasing history...

It is a bs talking point , deflection and logical fallacy when they pretend "the left" (aka anyone not conservative enough) is trying to destroy all the statues and change all the history books...


Which no one with ANY athority has ever ever said..

It is the "They are comming to get your guns!!"

When no one has ever proposed that and no law enforcement body would ever do it..

The exact same as the civil war..

"They are comming to get your slaves and make your daughters marry them!!"

When Lincoln had zero desire to do that.

Southerners fall for the same tired BS over and over..



So how many years has this mattered to you or did it just happen to become important when the puppeteers told you it was?

You nailed it. This has been the most difficult thing for me to articulate to friends without sounding like a conspiracy theorist.

The right are tricked into thinking all who oppose white nationalism is "Antifa" and the left, response, takes that as defending Nazis thereby labeling them all Nazi-sympathizers (and in some cases, it is true on both sides).

Honestly, if Nazis started waving flags with swastikas and pentagrams on them, I wouldn't suddenly view the anti-Nazi people as my enemy for not liking my pentagram nor would I view the Nazis as defending my symbols. Because in that scenario, it's the Nazis who ruined it, not the conservatives protesting pentagrams. I'd just stop wearing my symbols because the association soured the meaning for me.

But the right blames the left for what the white nationalists have started, many even viewing the neo-Nazis as protectors of their heritage.

Your OP laid this all out better than any other attempt I've seen. Great job.
