• "To have that sole acceptable view of history predominate,
our elites believe they must remove from public display
the statues of any associated with the cause of Southern
independence and stigmatize them all as traitors.
They have, however, a problem: Where do the elites stop
when the radicals demand more? If support of slavery
disqualifies one from the company of decent men, does it
disqualify George Washington, who owned slaves his
entire life? What Washington fought for, independence,
was what Lee fought for. Lee did not challenge Lincoln's
election. He did not seek to overthrow the government
Lincoln headed. He resigned from the U.S. army to go
home and defend the people among whom he had been
raised from an invasion to force-march them back into a
Union the state's chosen rulers had voted to leave.
Not only does our national capital, Washington, bear the
name of a lifelong slave owner, so does the capital of
Missouri, Jefferson City. So does the capital of Mississippi,
Jackson. So does the capital of Wisconsin, Madison. The
capital of Ohio is Columbus. The capital of South Carolina
is Columbia. Both are named for now-vilified Christopher
Columbus whose statue still stands outside D.C.s Union
Station.
None of these men appear, from how they lived their lives,

    • Jefferson juggled with the idea of slavery. He knew it was an evil like many of the founding fathers but outlawing it would literally have destroyed any attempts at forming a union of states. There is so much more to these men than these protestors understand

    • Should white people go to North Africa and Turkey and ask for them to remove Ummiyad/moorish and Ottoman Statues and monuments for enslaving white people?

    • There is no endpoint. By its very nature, the revolution must be continuous. Each concession made to the mob only strengthens it. A line in the sand must be drawn, and the cowardly republicans who won’t do so should be shamed forevermore

    • I think a key difference between the virtues of the founding fathers and those of the confederates was intention. The primary reason the confederates revolted was because of slavery, although they preferred the euphemism “states’ rights” (rights to own slaves, that is). Either way though, tearing do
