Basically the losers of that war have no right to be remembered by those beneficiaries who enjoy the fruits of that defeat and respect freedom as we
now know it in today's America. The people that accept our country as it stands today and tolerate some of it's imperfections , should not be
subjected to on a daily basis the images and names of those that represented the losers in those struggles being publicly displayed for all even those
that oppose their flawed ideology to pay homage.
Also the public as a whole should not be subjected to the subtle deification or portrayal of these military leaders as "Great Leaders" , the
confederacy stood for slavery, for building wealth for absolutely free based on forced human labor and they never had plans to do otherwise, you can
speculate all you want about what would have been or they would have come around nonsense, they had to be defeated for that to happen and what a
better country we do have no matter what you think.
They fought against the U.S. or what later became the true cornerstone of it's ideology and today they would be considered domestic terrorists
Does Germany have a Hitler street, a Goebbels avenue or Hitler High School ?
And do they proudly fly their flag post defeat ?
Also someone mentioned "whitewashing" you need to go find out where that term originated and actually what it was they were whitewashing, it may
As far as rewriting history, there is evidence this has been done throughout time many years before Obama and this administration came to office.
I am here to counterbalance all of the extreme thinkers cause us to question or even insinuate whether the confederacy was in any way the correct way
for America to proceed, well that nasty chapter ended with a war that answered the question and the answer was thankfully a very loud NO.
