    Most of these statues were put up long after the Civil War, during the Jim Crow era, at a time when white southerners were still butthurt over losing the war and wanted to flaunt their racism. They have no historical value; the only reason they were ever erected in the first place was to taunt and intimidate black people.

    Furthermore, we can remember traitors without honoring them. There are these things called museums, history books, the History Channel, and the Internet. None of them are going to disappear overnight if some cheap, ugly statues are removed.

    I don't see a problem with letting the communities vote on whether or not the statues should stay up, tbh. The fearmongering about history being erased has no basis in fact.

    I think you may have identified one of the problems, people who watch the History Channel only see stuff like Pawn Wars and Larry the Cable Guy anymore, so it's no wonder they think history is being erased.

    When they take the Ken Burns series off Netflix, I'll know Antifa is to blame.

    It's all garbage. Only reason I have it is for the San Antonio Spurs, Texas Rangers, and the Dallas Cowboys.

    Ah the glory days. It makes me sad when I go back and watch old Sopranos episodes and see Tony glued to the History Channel for all their great WWII do entaries.

    The History Channel was much better when it was the Hitler Channel instead of the Alien Conspiracy Channel.

    I guess the white hoods and burning crosses weren't enough?

    Gotta do something during the day.

    Or are you still trying to say they weren't the same people, Darrin?

    It's true, Dale. They're losers trying to put themselves in the winners' circle.

    Ive said this forever, not just this month. I never understood it. The winner gets to rip all that bull down and put their statues up. How in the did the confederates pull that off?

    To answer the OPs question, we are taking the monuments down not because they are of traitors or losers like the MSM has been saying and morons here parroting.

    We are taking them down because it offends a group of ppl. You can take anything down as long as it offends the right kinds and right numbers of ppl.


    Of course anything that offends the american indian is excluded as american indians are still not considered humans to this day in the good ol US of A
