It appears that we are once again ass deep in the civil rights thing from years ago….and as always we are re-fighting the Civil War….the thing now is that to ward off any possible source for protests governments are deciding to remove the statues of so-called “heroes” of the Civil War….you know people like Lee, Forrest, etc….
I read an article in the Federalist that made some goods points about this mash-up over monuments.
Initially well-intentioned, the movement for historical erasure is picking up steam and will soon be speeding out of control. We should use caution before sweeping too much of our history away from the public eye.
While I agree that some of the statues should come down but not all of them…..history is history and even ugly history deserves its place. There is a difference between history and heritage., although the PC crowd would have us believe they are one in the same.
If the monument celebrates a battle, a birthplace or a place of death then these should remain….but if it is a statue to celebrate a white guy that was pissed because he lost a war then it needs to go.
If the monument’s only purpose is hate then it needs to go down and soon.
