Can there still be monuments to our having crushed the insurrection? Like, say, Robert E. Lee lawn jockeys?

Unreal that in the Capitol there are statues commemorating the President and VP of the Confederacy and its chief general...just extraordinary. As if 600,000 soldiers never died because of these bastards! Remove them - NOW

Since most of the senior officers of the Confederate Army are ALL West Point Academy graduates, do we permanently CLOSE that institution and dismantle it?

Since Jefferson Davis, the President of the Confederacy, was a United States Senator from the State of Mississippi in the 1850's, do we revoke the Statehood of Mississippi and allow its' lands to be absorbed by the other border states? Oh but wait, weren't most of those other states the ones that left the union as well?

Since Mississippi is the HOME state of Jefferson DAVIS, then shouldn't all the Congressional representatives, Senate and House RESIGN?- Do it NOW.

If the Democrats want to erase all the signs of slavery, they must start the process of closing down West Point and the process of revoking Statehood Status on Mississippi.

Failure to do so will show the entire world what the Democrats and specifically Nancy Pelosi really are: a bunch of race baiting hypocrites of the HIGHEST ORDER. They are NOTHING, but opportunists

No, we can condemn the secessionist human traffickers and their later day apologists, such as you, and remove monuments to those individuals and to that human trafficking secessionist cause, specifically.

However the monuments of intrinsic artistic merit can be re located to museum or historical sites, where they can exist within a proper context of information.

You're a cretin.

when you start off that stupid, no point in discussing it further. just nonsensical.

my position: remove all confederate commemoration statues. most of them are post-1900 and attacks on black americans and their rights. i have no problem with towns who have lists of those lost in service to the confederacy, or of course with confederate grave markers or monuments.

Yes. You are right. After the violent Democrats remove other monuments to the nation's history they will demand the tearing down and the removal of the "racist" Washington monument. The violent Democrats are already bringing up that matter "for democratic discussion". One shouldn't laugh. Us kids recall that it was not long ago when the violent over-controlling hate filled Democrats began "discussing" whether or not to require us kids to wear helmets when we ride our bikes.

The Democrats don't want the statues moved to a different place, they want them destroyed to intimidate white people. Since we aren't guilty of anything we can't be intimidated, but we can retaliate at the polls next election. Bye, bye, Democrats.

Red Crosse.

Some of the violent Democrat terrorists are suggesting that monuments to the nation's historical past be relocated into museums. We all know what that would mean were the nation's disposed majority to accede to that outlandish demand. Once the statutes and monuments were relocated to museums, the violent Democrat terrorists would then demand those museums be closed - to the cheering of the fake news media occupiers.

As in the old Cheech and Chong routine: Ug, looks like shit, taste it! TASTE IT! Ug tastes like shit. Good thing we not step in.

So rather than stepping in shit, suddenly a moral outrage surfaces. Well at least it could not be phoney.(cough,cough)

It is not a question why filth like you are so in love with a violent insurrection launched against the United States - white supremacist [sic].

And the fact is that many of these Confederate monuments are being moved to museum contexts. They're getting off of municipal government building properties and public park properties. That's because the human trafficking and the violent revolution against the US they stand for are offensive to educated persons.

Washington led a revolt against a foreign power. Jefferson Davis and the rest of your heroes who still owned human beings a century after the war for independence led a revolt against...Washington's nation.

You're very sick in your lying and delusions.

The Founders did not sign the Constitution. You're "thinking" of the Declaration. Or you would have meant that if you had a functioning brain cell.

Not all of the Founders owned slaves. You're ignorant.

And speaking of insane, owning human beings in the 1770s is a little different from fighting to keep owning human beings in the 1860s....

Your stirring defense of monuments to people leading a revolt against the US on behalf of the right to own human being is noted. And your thoughts on the matter were never in doubt.

You are right, however whatever the Founding Father's signed they all held slaves. Want to destroy it? I think you people will soon discover you bit off more than you can chew.

BTW, the Civil War was fought over States Right's not slavery. Democrats added Slavery to history so they could secure the black vote.
