Removing them doesn't change a thing historically but it does say that we have evolved from "The South shall rise again" mentality.

Removing statues does change things.
Why don't we blow up the Egyptian pyramids because they were built with slaves?
What about Mt. Rushmore? To Hell with history, lets demolish works of art from our past.

Sex trafficking of minors is something Democrats tend to partake in. You know….. the little island “that” guy owned, and his democrat cohorts would frequent?

Here’s an interesting question. If slavery was still prevalent within the United States, how prosperous of a nation would we be, in terms of crime rate statistics, and fiscal dependency?

While I’m not a proponent of slavery, I do often wonder, “What if?”.
Since the current ratio of 12% of the former slave race population accounts for over 50% of the crime, I would have to think the overall crime rate would be less if that population was enslaved.

You can’t choose your history. It is what it is. But you can dam sure choose who you honor.

Modern day slavery wouldn’t be limited to a particular race population. I suspect those numbers would increase tremendously under an equal opportunity employer business model.

Of course the democrats want to remove all reminders of the civil war, they were the slave owning southerners.

Speaking of sex trafficking, this will be out of control in Afghanistan now that Sleepy Joe is in charge. Everything that he touches he just screws up. One big cluster. Ruining our country one day at a time. I wonder who is really making the decisions right now? DA Syndrome.

i'm offended by statues of fdr. i think he was a fascist and destroyer of liberty. he got us into ww2 on purpose. i would oppose his statue removal because it causes people to discuss things like that. like we're doing here. future gens won't have that reminder now. there will be another revolution in this country, it may well be unavoidable now. almost certainly a violent one if history is any indication of future events. and almost as certainly will end with a far more totalitarian govt. if we have reminders of how horrible that is, maybe we can try to work out our differences a little harder instead

I think we simply should remove Democrats...that would eliminate 99.999% of people who get offended by the least little thing.

Isn't having open discussions such as this a means to work out our differences or at the very least come to terms with a difference of opinion? The biggest problem I see with the country is that the left and the right believes compromise means coming around to my way of thinking or else. It's a sad state of affairs when we have eliminated civil discourse from the equation.

actually if this were the Democrats of Kennedy in 62 versus the Republicans, I'd agree...however this anti American socialist/marxist Democratic Party has moved so far left that there's NOTHING representing American values on their side. This idea that big government can be openly corrupt, that the media has become a pawn of the Democratic Party is EXACTLY what's wrong with the USA. The fact that an American President left hundreds/thousands of Americans behind and created a terrorist nation and gave 85 billion in weapons to the Taliban tells me all I need to know about Biden. His treason is being ignored by the liberal media and people who call themselves Americans are turning a blind eye. Trump was impeached for a phone call.....and Biden is in bed with Russia and China and openly breaking federal laws and liberals ignore that.

Slavery is alive and well today in other countries and I hear nothing about stopping it. We stopped it in America. Why not celebrate that? Women are oppressed in other counties today and I don't hear an outcry to those atrocities either. We have come a long way in treating women appropriately. Why not celebrate that?
The weaponization of a "cause" in America is causing social strife that is not needed. Why? Why are we doing this to ourselves?

Speaking of being offended by the least little thing, why are people soooo upset about the removal of a statue? It's literally a piece of metal that birds poop on, why cry about the removal a poop stained eye sore?

I've read your statement several times and i can't help but think there is someone on the democrat side that feels this exact way about the republican party. When are we going to realize that our elected officials are ripping us off? They are all in it together. Name another career field that pays $185k yr and within 5 yrs you're a multimillionaire? A career field that gives you lifetime benefits even when you're not employed there? They dont represent our best interest, they represent the interest of whoever pays them the most. Also if you truly believe Biden created a terrorist nation and gave them 85 billion in weapons, you are simply not paying attention. We were in Afghanistan for 20yrs, all of that equipment didnt get there in the last 7 months. The majority of the equipment was left for the Afghan military to defend themselves and their country when we left. The problem with that plan was the Afghan military laid down their weapons and decided not to fight the taliban. We had 3 presidents that could've gotten us out of Afghanistan and all 3 kicked the can down the road. BTW, Afghanistan has always been a terrorist nation, our arrogance lead us to believe we could change them. We failed just as every other nation that has tried to change them FAILED. We as a people are so much better than this but we are allowing politics and news outlets to pull us apart. The terms left and right have began defining people more than the moral makeup of a person. We better wakeup soon or history will repeat itself, there will be a civil war and the only people that will benefit are foreign nations. God help us all, we are falling for the con more and more everyday.

I know you're just trolling, but that's like saying whoremongering is something Republicans tend to partake in because Trump had sex with hookers and **** stars. Or that raping, torturing & killing young men is something Houstonians tend to do because of Dean Corll. :rolleyes:
