    The only legit reason is to build them back twice as high.

    Everybody talks about coming together......except those people! Old, old Yankee here, as proud of those "Stars and Bars" folks as my kin that fought them were. Those that don't get that, never will.

    libs are continually trying to rewrite history in their own image, and it appears that it is working. :emoji_ballot_box:

    It is about eliminating all of white American history. They want you dead and your children mudmixed out of existence. Eliminating history is just one of the early steps of eliminating all of us.

    But ken burns recorded a true account, and pbs is holding on to it,

    Gettysburg National Park must be preserved, they hold the truth as well.

    The main reason for those not interested in Confederate monuments is based on some very specific wording contained in the Confederate Constitution, regarding the African race and slavery. It is accelerating in the Trump era because we are in the early stages of attempted revolution, it is symbolic and empowering for them if successful in removing the monuments.

    The Oak Bluffs Board of Selectmen voted unanimously Tuesday to move a plaque that honored Confederate soldiers into the Martha’s Vineyard Museum.

    Removing history from schools was accomplished, next step are signs and statues.
