I am curios as to where the end is for the removal of all things deemed offensive to the few. We have bypassed the rules in favor of mob rules with regard to statue removal. It's now perfectly acceptable to form a mob and remove anything you deem offensive. If that statement is not true, then those who have done this recently would be in jail, they aren't.

So at what point does this end? I ask as there are many other areas where this issue exists. Towns, cities, counties, last names, buildings. Is it just the military bases, statues, and civil war memorials? Or will this spill over into renaming everything that has anything to do with the Civil war? I only ask because common sense kind of has a play here. If you are so angry and afraid that a statue of General Lee must be removed, then what about a guy or girl with the last name Lee? What about a town called Leesville?

Good lord, what about the roads?

And if civil war era names scare some people, then where do we draw the line? Can others be frightened by other historical events? Can they form a mob and tear down statues they deem offensive?

As with the current occupation of Seattle, I don't think this was well thought out at all. If you don't plan ahead, you set yourself up for failure. I know some of the left leaning posters here have the answers, they usually do on most subjects. So please let us know how this ends.

At the bottom of utter endless stupidity.

Now they're targeting Lincoln and a monument dedicated to emancipation.

As Allen West said in the news recently.

Can I have that statue on my private property?
I mean, they're just trashing it, maybe it should go up for auction.

Yes, but will it actually mostly be them or people being offended on their behalf? It's the latter group that always tries to force the Florida Seminoles to change their mascot because the tribe actually likes it.

I'll post it again, and let Don Lemon explain it:


Lemon made this absurd declaration on CNN’s New Day on Friday.

“Listen, white people are so scared right now to do anything, to talk about anything, to broach these conversations,” Lemon said. “They’re sort of frozen because they — who wants to be called a racist, right? Who wants people to think that they have a racial blind spot? But this is what I think. I think that—this is going to sound weird, but, every year, I have hydrangeas in my yard, they come back a different color, or a tulip or an orchid. And it’s not because they’re different, it’s because the soil is different, right? It depends on the nutrients in the soil. So, if you grew up in America, you came out of American soil, considering the history of this country […] how can you not be racist? How can you not have racial blind spots? How can you not see that the factory reset in America is whiteness?”


This is it. The ultimate aim is to cancel America because it's white supremacy.

Events can snowball very easily and very quickly.

You should try asking the racist people doing it.

So long as its played out as ok by the media the police ain't gonna be much help. Anything they try will be viewed as racist from now on forever.

There is no end. It’s another device used to separate the masses so they can’t cooperate and see they are being used by the elite.

It ends with Technofascism.

Total corporate-political control using complete centralized dependency to ensure compliance.

People are being conditioned to narc on their neighbor for spurious reasons based in fear, with entire networks setup for it. Wonder whatll happen if everything from our shelter to food to medicine depends on perpetuating the technocratic monolith..

In other words, I suppose it will end with total subjugation. Where terms like "bigot" are a death sentence and have been made so colloquially vague that we might as well use the term "carrot."

Orrrr, I suppose we could take a step back from the Digital Veil and actually start talking with each other.. Start embracing diversity of thought.. Work towards self-sufficiency.. Work on personal responsibility and self-awareness..

Well had they not already cancelled the reruns of Dukes of Hazzard they would have known the lyrics were “Straightening the curves. Flattening the hills.” and would not have fallen for the house arrest declarations. Would have saved so much trouble right there.

But alas...

I’m all right with Civil War monuments being toppled considering most of them were erected as a protest against Civil Rights.

If that bothers you, you’ll always be able to fly the final flag of the confederacy.

The bottom line is for the majority to shut up.
You have no power (so much for democracy, right?)
A small but obnoxiously self-righteous and loud minority will dictate everything.
You have been cancelled by the grievance committee.
Thank you higher education for inculcating the supreme fairness doctrine among our young.
We're so glad they're here to tell us how wrong we've been doing everything

Usually, it ends with kangaroo courts, show trials, public executions and mass graves.

Followed by starvation and years of economic suffering for millions.

so when a group of folks angrily topples the MLK statues, you will be all for that as well? Or are you just in favor of angry mobs that do your biding?
