Why is there a movement to remove Confederate statues, memorials, etc.?

See Hillsborough County Considering Removing Confederate Statue


Commissioners voted 4-3 last month to keep the monument at its current location. Another vote will be held on Wednesday.


If commissioners change course on the monument, Tampa will join New Orleans and Orlando as cities that have removed Confederate statues.



The answer to the topic’s question is very basic. It was Democrats who supported slavery, Black Code laws, segregation, etc., and today, most Blacks are democrats and this is why they are on a mission to erase their party’s ugly past.


See When Erasing Symbols of Slavery, Don't Forget the Democratic Party


”After the Civil War, Democrats implemented new strategies to re-enslave or oppress African Americans. They introduced things like Jim Crow laws. President Woodrow Wilson (D) segregated the Army and Federal government. They were integrated by Republicans before him, and again by Republicans after Roosevelt. President Roosevelt appointed a leader of the Ku Klux Klan to the Supreme Court, and another KKK leader, Robert Byrd, was a prominent Democratic Senator for decades. Republicans had tried to pass the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts since the mid-50's, but Democrats blocked them, until President Johnson (D) gutted the Acts and passed them as part of a scheme to pacify blacks and snare their votes.”



Is there any wonder why Democrats are the driving force behind erasing our nation’s history by removing Confederate statues, memorials, etc.?

They are not “liberals” or “progressives”. They are conniving Marxist parasites who use government force to steal and then enjoy the property which labor, business and investors have worked to create.

Let's imagine, for instance, that here in the UK we had statues all over the place to those who organized the burning of Protestants, or to Guy Fawkes, who tried to murder the King and Parliament. The Confederates were fighting to make a large proportion of your population life-prisoners, and steal all their wages. I think I'd object very strongly indeed to having a statue to such a scum-bag in my town.

You do realize that "our nation" is NOT the Confederacy. The Confederacy no longer exists and has not existed for about 150 years.

Removing these statues, like that of Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard, a life long Democrat, is an obvious attempt to cover up the Democrat Party's ugly past.

Own it my friend. Book burning and tearing down monuments will never erase the ugly past of the Democrat Party.

1. I'm not a Democrat.

2. The Democrat Party of 150 years ago is not the Democrat Party of today. The Democrat Party of 150 years ago has much more in common with the Republican Party of today.

N, YOU may not be living during the Confederacy, but obviously, John is. These folks keep talking about "HISTORY" "REMOVING history".

Have we taken the Civil War OUT of the American history books? Have we censored decades of hate and division? So ridiculous. Some of those statues have been moved to other places--museums, private property.....

And BTW, there is LOTS of American history that we could display. How about a statue of Osama Bin Laden to commemorate 9/11? Or how about a statue of Hitler to recognize WWII? He was a famous leader...wasn't he?

This nation is trying to move forward--out of the dark ages and into the light.

Nixon took all those racist Democrats off our hands with his Southern Strategy. They didn't like Johnson's sponsorship of Equal Rights legislation. It is no great coincidence that southern states switched from blue states to red states at that time. Yesterday's Democratic Party is today's Republican Party. QUIT MAKING IGNORANT STATEMENTS AND LEARN A LITTLE ABOUT OUR POLITICAL HISTORY !!!!!!!!
