    Your "poll" that was commissioned by George Soros??

    This statement, as also made by the previous push to remove the statue, shows a complete lack of knowledge of what was going on in the region at the time this allegedly happened.

    Again, opposing both is not sanitizing Fascism. But nice attempt to spin your leftest rhetoric. Neither allow, or defend free speech. Therefore I would never support either ideology because I believe all speech is protected by the 1st Amendment. But violence is not, clearly both ideologies justify the use of violence as a political means. Anyone that attempts to justify silencing the speech of their opposition does not believe in the Bill of Rights!

    The left does not own the exclusivity rights to vigilante groups, you fking cuck. Vigilante groups built the foundation for the uprise to build this country. I know you hate the history of this country, but no matter how blind & dumb you are, you can't change historical facts.

    This statue thing isn't even the real issue. It's a precursor to something more. It's way passed time for the adults to stand up and whip the temper tantrum throwin' kiddies.

    Now take your ignorant ___ to timeout.

    Said those whose actions actually are Fascist in nature. Burn books, tear down statues, prohibit free speech and commit violence against fellow citizens.

    This dope doesn't know nor care about history. To these idiotic tards, the world began when they were born.

    Oh no T, they can't be fascists, you see. Theyre fighting "injustice" and "oppression", so they're exempt from that defeinition. 🙄

    I wish there was some other way of learning our history that didn't depend on statues. Oh well.

    O you are not alone. These statues need to be in museums to remind us that we should never own people again. They should not be glorified. We as southerners have no more to be proud of with that war than Penn State and the Joe Paterno statue. Come on guys. We fought to maintain our right to own people. We should be trying to erase that from our streets.

    Great! Then I'm certain you will join me in condemning all violence and those that wish to silence speech they don't agree with.

    Beaux, I have no problem with communities making a decision to move certain statues to museums. That is entirely up to each community. But let's not kid ourselves, this movement is not organic, it is all about shaming Trump supporters and painting all of them with the same brush as Fascist and White Suprematist.

    We had a Black President and Black Attorney General for eight years, and removing these statues were never part of larger public discussion. I agree with Alen Dershowitz's statement, he is far from Alt-Right political operative.

    "There is a danger of "going too far" when it comes to calls to remove statues of founding fathers such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson who were slave owners."

    "We have to use this as an educational moment. "We have to take some of the statues that were put up more recently, for example, during the civil rights movement and perhaps move them to museums where they can be used to teach young students about how statues are intended sometimes for bad purposes, to glorify negatives and to hold back positive developments."

    However, Dershowitz said he does not like the idea of "willy-nilly" erasing history, like Joseph Stalin did.

    "[It] poses a danger, educational malpractice, of missing opportunities to educate people, and of going too far."

    He's right, we already have people calling for the removal of the Washington Monument and the Jefferson Memorial in Washington. This isn't about an educational moment or an opportunity for dialogue on current racial relations in the US, but resistance to a change in power from a democratic held election, motivated in anger and vested in violence.

    If you go to Berlin you will notice that history is not erased. If anything it is preserved in a way that they will never forget their shame. In no way is Hitler glorified. Their is certainly place in our museums for reminders of what we should never do again. But we should not put them on pedestals

    I don't live in Berlin, I live in the US. Again, this isn't about bringing people together for dialogue, but White shaming everyone that lives in the South and supporters of Trump. I don't support rabid removal of every statue in relationship to confederacy, but I do believe every community has the right to determine what is best for their citizens. So remove them if you please, understanding that the slippery sloop begins.

    I agree with you. Arguing with you is making me look foolish. Like arguing with a mannequin would make one look foolish, for example.

    For a whole plethora of reasons (that may or may not have made sense at the time) historical negationism or denialism is an age old problem. Egyptians chiseled their predecessors off of hieroglyphs. God's Name removed from the Bible. Losers in wars rarely mention the losses. On and on and now this.

    And I'm not a fan of statues.
