    There is much to be debated about the 30's. FDR interning Japanese Americans, FDR pulling segregated America into the war any sneaky way he could.

    I could live with a statue of Harriet Tubman stomping the Confederate slavery flag (stars and bars) next to every Confederate memorial, grave and statue. For FDR and the Japanese I think a memorial to Japanese who served in our military during the war with a plaque denouncing the internment underneath.

    FDR saved the U.S. from a Socialist revolution after the post WWI bubble burst, and maybe saved the world from believing capitalism does not work. I am not paid to post by FDR though so I can ridicule his mistakes and wish i saw more of that on this board.

    Shucks, Dan Marino wasn't even perfect even if he was the best QB ever!

    Some folks are trying to dersil an unwinnable discussion about the Confederacy lol. Maybe there is a "you picked on my favorite super hero (Robert e Lee), I'll hurt you by bringing down batman" aspect left over from back in the day.

    I don't have hero's like that so it doesn't apply to me. I'm sure others do so maybe it works on them? I'll try it on some six year olds later lol.

    Did FDR betray his country to support an entirely race-slavery-based regime? Were monuments to white-supremacism later raised to him?

    No?

    Then I think you have your answer. FDR has nothing to do with the current events. Washington and Jefferson have nothing to do with the current events.

    You are quite, and sadly, correct there. For far too long this "us vs. them" mentality has been cultivated in our country. I can think of very few people who have call it what it is, AND condemned it publicly. So, I don't see it ending anytime soon. Maybe our children will have better luck in stopping it...

    In the meantime, I will continue the good fight, and invite EVERYONE to join...

    Deflection, something for which you seem to have a penchant for. Could you just answer the question, in plain language, and without deflection, or attacks? I truly hope so, I would very much like to know what your thoughts are on the topic.
