Oh, well... Probably a good thing, but it's still history.

Ready to remove all those Bible references in the courthouses or are we just giving in to thugs today?

In keeping with the childishness of the left, I hereby call for the removal of ALL statues.

One never knows who may be "offended" by any given statue and what it stands for so why take chances, tear them all down.

What exactly is "Southern Pride"? What are you proud of? What have they done that is outstanding? There's no Northern pride, or Western pride. They've fought a war against the USA to keep slaves? Why are they still fighting the civil war?

Destroying American symbols and patriotic historical monuments It is act of barbaric vandalism of ISIS ideology supports of the radical liberals. Democratic liberals, communists and Jihadists sympathizers of ISIS that destroyed ancient Palamira in Iraq hate patriotic Americans and the American constitution and they are taking out the symbols of the greatness of America like ISIS destroyed antiquities did in Ninve. President Trump is right to oppose the uprooting and erasing of monuments who were established more than Hundreds years ago after the civil war in which patriotic American heroes sacrificed their lived for new America with no slavery, no racism and equal right to all. The removal of American historic monuments after more than hundreds years of American patriots is effort by the liberal Democratic communist and Jihadist sympathizers of ISIS who push new globalist new world agenda in which America ceased to exist as a nation and its losing its borders, its flag, its anthem and its constitution. No country can exist as a nation with erased history and with no roots since the radical left communist and Jihadist using Black panthers Mozlem Brothers, Black Lives matter cop killers and ISIS supporting thugs for ruling the streets of cities in America with violence, riots and demonstrations financed and paid for by Hillary Clinton Foundation of bribe money from Iran and by the anti-Semitic anarchist George Soros money bleaching organization. It is time to stop the rule of our city streets with the violent mob which is played by the Clinton Foundation and George Soros to destroy American history and American rule of law, seeking the demise of America. It is the lawlessness and violence of the Hillary Resistance army of Black Lives Matter and the Intifa-da Jihadist groups that enjoy free role to destroy American historic monuments with hatred to Whites which became to hated race.

These American Taliban wanted a University in California to take down a plaque of Martin Luther King, because he was against gay marriage, and homosexuality. He was a Baptist Minister. They are bat shit crazy.

I suppose that greatly depends on whether or not those children can find jobs.

NOW we should erase Roe v. Wade from our history while we are at it. Abortion always requires the intentional, premeditated taking of innocent human-life for what are always selfish reasons. Abortion IS Murder.
HOPEFULLY Betsy Devos will prevent the United Nations from dictating what our children learn in public school. We MUST remain a sovereign nation and get the heck out of the UN(NWO). Ultimately we WILL become an integral part of the one-world government headed by The Antichrist(Obama?). There is still a microcosm of time to get saved before The Rapture.

The Bible purports The Antichrist, "the little horn", will come from a nation that is heavily Islamic and is one of these four: Turkey, Egypt, Syria or Greece. Obama was born Islamic and likely in Africa so that birthplace, like in the U.S., precludes Obama from being THE Antichrist. I contend he is only an anti-christ as Obama is a socialist(communist) which means anti-Christian. You claim Obama was born a British Subject and England is in Europe and not in one of the four countries mentioned. Yet you and a very few others insist Obama is the actual "Antichrist". Think about it!

We're just giving in to the alt-lib thugs. Evidently we need to remove all historical books and landmarks that even mention slavery, or anyone that owned slaves, and the Civil War. It is the progressive way to eliminate racism.

Democrat Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) praised the Southern Democrats for their successful efforts in putting a White Democrat Segregationist on the Supreme Court. Maybe we should remove all statues and historical references to FDR and that Justice.

Democrat Woodrow Wilson as President supported the Ku Klux Klan and especially its huge march on Washington during his term in office. Maybe we should remove all statues and historical references to Wilson and the majority Democrat representatives supporting the efforts to deprive Black access to White women.

Wilson was our first communist President, you can see by his Presidency the similarity of it to Clintons and more closely with Obama's. They were all racist, just like liberals today. They always try to say republicans are what they are to hide their guilt.

Treasonous traitors aren't patriots. General Lee position not to erect monuments because they'd be divisive symbols.

Lee was right. Most confederate monuments were erected in defiance of racial equality during the civil rights era.

Its time to take confederate monuments off public lands
