    we are the other people President Trump is speaking of.

    people don't have to visit the memorials, but i want the option.

    it's my country too. flags, national parks, bumper stickers, where does it end.

    the libs can't just bully away our history.

    if their message was so great they wouldn't have to bring violence and war to the American streets.

    That's OK. Nobody said you have to like it. It would be better for you to just get over it.

    I agree-----at most-----an addition to the existing plaques-----at such sites Robert E Lee sites could be----
    something like. "The people of the USA recognize that Robert E Lee fought in in a
    campaign that supported the scourge of chattel slavery of black americans" REAL
    HISTORY. The plaques could also include his real contributions to the USA military.
    calm down folks and BE HUMAN BEANS

    well said. great idea. i'm sure they would like to scrub museums, the smithsonian, the library of congress that jefferson started, a man who fathered his own slaves.
