    Give a inch want a mile.

    It's their way.

    And is why people fight the left when they say they just want "this little common sense thing".

    Who said anything about state actions?
    We are talking about the people who are taking down statues and destroying them.

    It is THESE people not the state that are taking them down whether by vandalism or by petitioning the state.

    But nice simpleton view of the issue you have there. You making fun of asshats would be like me making fun of conservatives.

    I would say it is more: We have an ultimate agenda the majority would not accept. So lets start with some low hanging fruit that we may get the mainstream to agree with. Then as we commit one little sin after another then the big sins don't seem so bad.

    There's a difference between a local government deciding to take a Jim Crow era statue down and some university vandals destroying their own campus.

    You can choose to ignore that difference but at that point everyone should just ignore you.

    Please, don't pretend like this is about a slippery slope. You're just using Thomas Jefferson and the slippery slope argument to try to justify keeping confederacy crap like the statues. Hey I'm cool with keeping Jefferson, Washington, Columbus as statues of that ilk but let's destroy everything confederacy related like statues/flags. Agreed? Of course you don't. And all the trump people pretending to be outraged by this don't either , which takes me back to my original point, the confederacy lost, get over it.
    Btw though I completely disagree with your politics but you seem like a good dude and more of your posting and posters like you are needed in the CFB threads.

    I'm actually ok with moving the Confederate statues to museums or private property. You obviously haven't read my posts in the past. I'm only against the vandalism. These statues can be moved legally.

    This thread is about the removal of statues and monuments who might be slave related. Francis Scott Key and Thomas Jefferson had nothing to do with the Confederacy unless you argue that the South followed the Jeffersonian style of government.

    The problem with this mob mentality is where does it end? Our entire history is tied to slavery. It can't be erased or hidden from. It happened, it was a way of life. We shouldn't forget it, but learn from it.

    That has been brought up and you can bet it will be addressed.

    I don't get this equating ditching statues to "deleting history".
    That's an absurd stretch.

    Because they are moving beyond just Confederate monuments. It's reaching anything slave related, like Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Francis Scott Key and the Star Spangled Banner, etc. I'm still trying to figure out the whole Key and National Anthem thing. That's a stretch, but BLM was founded on a lie, so...

    It's taking the course all knee jerk reactions do.
    Getting rid of statues doesn't "delete history" and in fact is a great opportunity to address history. A lot of these statues were erected during the restoration period for dubious reasons.

    I get the Confederate monuments, but it needs to end there.

    Indeed, but I think the generation that's driving this stuff has priorities I don't really understand.
