I neither agree or support what is now being called ''cancellation culture'. Leave the statues there and keep the names that were established a
I also do not support this notion that the Democrat Party is the same as the Democrat Party that supported slavery a hundred and fifty years ago nor
allowed the KKK to form from racists who called themselves Democrats. The name is the same but the make up has changed.
Once it was established, the two party system has been a mish mash of opposing values not easily defined by the fluxuating platform of either party.
Each party has had what might be called liberal or conservative from the beginning with each side vying for control of either party. And when one
side would appear to have enough power to grab the candidate of their choice, it was often necessary to choose a running mate to appeal to the other
half of the party, Such as Kennedy and Johnson.
And leave us not forget that it was liberals who filled the streets in protest against LBJ and his support of the war in Vietnam and the general
failure to overcome racism at that time.

Yes, Billyx2, that is how I looked them up to find out more about them.
There is no prominent University in the USA that would allow a conservative to speak on campus, let alone teach.
Conservative thought and ideas are forbidden in all prominent Universities. The students would quickly see to it that anyone who dares speak or think
a conservative thought is thrown out and discredited immediately.
This sounds like an overly exaggerated conservative trope pushed by conservative sources. Surely there are problems with who is allowed to speak on
campus and who is not but to claim that it is all one sided even with a fair enough list of examples is demonstrating total bias as well.
