I don’t know what’s more offensive, that Trump is a racist or that he’s too stupid to know he’s a racist. He definitely is too stupid to hide it. Or is it a plan to deescalate tensions with North Korea or distract from the Russia investigation?

    Armentrout, armed with an assault rifle and sidearm acts the jackass, stands in front of General Lee’s statue saluting. Crowd gathers and cops show up. Now college boots his dumbass.

    I feel sorry for the baby faced young man, he won’t get his promised last year of undergrad free. ACLU was going to help him, but, they won’t because he was armed.

    “Should the statues to Washington and Jefferson be taken down because they held slaves?”

    Been thinking about that since it came up. I think the question re Confederate Heroes is open and shut a “black and white” case. There is no justification/excuse for those Slavers to be honored in any way. Ha, ha…..(few things so absolute?)==maybe a small statue in a corner for Lee because he did give up when beat and did not go into the woods to fight a guerilla warfare as does happen too often. It makes sense he made the choices he did…..different thread.

    But to W&J: why the adulation? Why the need for statues raising these conflicted humans to the status of demi-gods? That is the basis for my consideration….not so much what they did in their time and place.

    So “right now” I would vote for and be upset if all the Confederate Statues were not taken down. I would vote for but not be upset if the W&J were not taken down. Let the Majority Rule. To me…W&J is very much the same as Columbus. He was a hero when I was a kiddie…..but not today…… and I think all for good valid reasons. As stated, the Columbus review and concerns do all seem to fit with W&J with perhaps W&J having a bit more redeeming aspirations if not character?

    Nice counterfactual on which the question perhaps should hang: if in counseling revolution, would W&J done so if they would have given up their slaves? I don’t think anyone knows, can best guess, that answer.

    SLAVES: the basis for early American wealth. Its one thing to give up your mastery over another group of people, quite another to give up your own wealth.

    In the future, whether God Status is removed from W&J could well hinge on the majority view of what to think of Slave Holders. I’d rather it be based on a conclusion regarding the need for Gods in our culture, but maybe thats just me.

    “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

      Thats a good concept about history and how we understand it/many things.

    • Lyle says:

      So, you are saying what? That the “truth” is out there, waiting for the Xfiles to bring it back?

      The truth is that the South felt like they should have anything they wanted and that the North was interfering in the right to brutally destroy people of color. Rape and murder was very common during their reign and after.

    Mods: I see you are busy deleting posts that are delete worthy.

    Always a pain……

    There is “a value” in leaving the posters name and slot with a notice that it was deleted and why. Its a learning process…. for those who can learn? “Posts devoid of content made purely for mindless personal attacks violate posting guidelines.”

    “Personally”….I’d be tempted to leave as much of the post intact while deleting the offense….there is even more learning/demonstration of the applied standards when doing that….but it is more work…unless you find it kinda fun.

    Ha, ha……I’m staying on the current page here, so don’t know If I’ve been wholly deleted on other page.

    Its a choice.

    • You're kidding, right? says:

      “To me…W&J is very much the same as Columbus. He was a hero when I was a kiddie…..but not today…… and I think all for good valid reasons.”

      Dead men don’t just fall from grace when no new facts about them are brought forward. You’ve known the facts long since you were a “kiddie”. It’s suspiciously convenient you were just recently “enlightened”?

      How disingenuous!

      Also, when did you become part of the speech cleansing police?

      • bobbo, we think with words and flower with Ideas says:

        YKr: I didn’t know the facts as a kiddie. THAT was the whole point. Sat Nite Live “Summer Edition” just had a sketch right on point where G. Wash slowly had to admit his controversy was not about chopping down the Cherry Tree or having wooden teeth.

        When I was a Kiddie…..all those men were faultless heros. The biggest negative was the joke still told today that “Columbus discovered America” … was news to the Indians.

        I didn’t take history in College….don’t remember High School but that was heavy on the sciences too.

        No……the info on the slaves came later in adulthood. Coincidentally, I do remember the general approval of Confederate Statues in the South. Then as now it wasn’t about slavery but about respect for those who fought for States Rights…..as if the two subjects weren’t one in the same. Got into bar “stand-offs” and lost a girl friend because of the “Pride of the South” BS…. that evidently has gone from the majority general view just to skinheads.

        So….its when old facts become known by a greater majority than before that public attitudes change.

        2nd Q==when the posts contain no speech at all.

    >but what makes the guy an antifa protestor as opposed to a criminal in the crowd?

    Ive been told all week that everyone who marched was automatically part of the group or any portion the media chose to highlight.

    Slavery IS still forced upon the black man in America. I am really starting to hate the south more and more each day. All you posters who support the confederate flag and statues, dreaming of the good ole days, with good ole boys lynching and murdering are the enemy.
    Didn’t the Thirteenth Amendment abolish all forms of slavery and involuntary servitude in this country?


    • bobbo, we think with words and flower with Ideas says:

      • jpfitz says:

        Bobbo, I don’t hate southern folk, only the ideals of the south, those who still hold hate in their hearts for blacks and brown. Clutching onto the southern “culture”, living in the past. Well, that “culture” is unhealthy and just like Nazism in Germany needs to be exorcised.

        I don’t mean the kind southern gentleman. Or gentile southern belle.

        Tell me, since when has antifacism been a bad ideal. Neo-Nazis, white supremacists and murderer’s seem to be popular in the southern states and on this site. Jezey Crezy.

        “Thousands of people from many countries went to Spain in support of the anti-fascist cause, joining units such as the Abraham Lincoln Brigade, the British Battalion, the Dabrowski Battalion, the Mackenzie-Papineau Battalion, the Naftali Botwin Company and the Thälmann Battalion. Notable anti-fascists who worked internationally against Franco included: George Orwell (who fought in the POUM militia and wrote Homage to Catalonia about this experience), Ernest Hemingway (a supporter of the International Brigades who wrote For Whom the Bell Tolls about this experience), and radical journalist Martha Gellhorn.” Wikipedia

            Yeah…. and DON’T STARE AT IT. I did that at age 12 and got retinal scarring. I still (warmly) remember staring at the partial eclipse back then, seeing the sliver of moon cover the sun and noting the “warmth” at the back of my eyeballs.

            I don’t know why I decided to stop looking. Certainly wasn’t my mother’s warnings not to look at it?

            Stupid Kiddies. But….I was in fear for 20 years thereafter about not being able to pass a pilot’s eye exam. Thank Darwin…. my eyes are so good I could see around the scaring with my peripheral vision.

    3. When a statue honors Lee as the great soldier that he was, only a liberal could find it in himself to mitigate that by considering unrelated thoughts or actions Lee harbored. /// How is what you fought for unrelated to being honored for fighting? That is almost……… what? ……… a non-sequitur?? Ha, ha……. actually not……. but you can’t tell the difference, so I’ll go with the word play.

          “Following Orders”—need I say more? Ha, ha……of course as you don’t have a clue or you wouldn’t post as you do. Soldiers don’t give up their humanity and autonomy when putting on their uniforms. Its what Nuremberg and War Crimes was all about.

          Is suspect rather than mean you as a soldier wouldn’t think about the orders you are given, the purpose you fight for, isn’t what you mean. YOU mean you don’t think to begin with……….

    Of no interest to Post Menopausal… nice demonstration of sheep thinking on tv discussion re Trump giving an order to Nuke North Korea as a first strike over some personal frustration. Trump orders the hit and it would be agreed to by the Secretary of War (sic)…but the Sect cannot veto the Presidents decision… he can only counsel and agree. So……this raises the issue of the Military Brass and do they have said brass not to Nuke NK if they recognize its just Trump being Trump?

    One commentator did not understand the issue. “Its an order from the President…….the Military has to follow it: “”Or they would be in violation of the law.””
