Oh Goody. The Civil War did not occur.

The last statue honoring heroes of the Confederacy has been removed from New Orleans.  There were a total of four of them.

I'm a midwesterner who has landed in the South to spend her remaining days.  My family would have fought in the Northern Army.  I certainly never would have believed in owning another person and having them work for me for free, etc.  In fact, I now have five biracial granddaughters.

However, our nation did have a Civil War.  It lasted four years, and from what I understand, that war killed more fighters than any other war in which we've been engaged.  It happened, people. 

Yes, there were great generals on both sides.  The Confederate States did have a President.
Taking down the statues doesn't change the fact of slavery being practiced in the U.S. prior to the ending of that war.

Is taking down the four statues going to change any facts?

Didn't you bring up the other day they delayed this when I brought up the subject?

Perhaps Crepe you could have chained yourself to the statue to prevent it's removal? Grin

I also told you that "Elections matter less, liberal's are winning the culture wars" Wink

What's the cultural war involving the Civil War?  Denying fact?  Now thqat I think of it, that does seem to be the way of the dem party.  Deny facts of things that happened and say things happened that they have no proof/fact of happening, e.g. Trump colluding with the Russians regarding our election.  Didn't happen.

What are you asking me for? Grin

Ask the people that are behind taking it down?

Who is behind taking it down?


Is it New Orleans politicians or from the greater great state of Louisiana Roll Eyes??

It was the town council of 6 people who decided for all while someone here tried to argue that they represented everyone in spite of outside influence and a petition of 30,000 or so not wanting it removed.  It's all in the links below.

The purpose is not to change facts.  The purpose is not to glorify evil.  How many statues of Hitler are standing in Germany?  Remember when Saddam Hussein was defeated?

How do you know that Trump did not collude with the Russians?

Again,  statues do not add to or take away from the historical facts.  It glorifies events.  Do you want to glorify the fact that the south wanted to secede?

Marxists countries and banana republics of the third world, typically tear down statues, burn books and rewrite history as part of the reeducation of their subjects. 

They failed on taking "In God We Trust" off our currency, but they will try again.  First they need to sandblast the 10 commandments of Moses which were sculpted into the walls of the interior of the Supreme Court Chambers.

They love to burn the American flag as their right to "free speech" against this land they hate, so very much.  A few Liberal Colleges have gone so far as to expose the sick truth of these Alinsky Marxists and have banned the American Flag from their campus because it is too distressing to some of their people.
