    Prior to a couple days ago the statues were "offensive"

    They had to come down because they were oppressing easily offended liberal black folk.

    Now suddenly they have to come down because they represent traitors.


    I'm just curious who convinced the left that their original argument was asinine? Why did the narrative change? And why weren't these "traitors" called out in the previous ONE HUNDRED YEARS?

    They've always been labeled as statues of traitors. That's part of why they're offensive.

    Pivoting is all they've done since their humiliating defeat. Remember the Beast and TPP? Russia?

    Trump redefined the GOP, but the party of the KKK s desperately trying to redefine itself in a 1000 different directions.

    Not buying it. As I stated in the op, why did they "suddenly" become offensive in 2017 versus the previous CENTURY?

    Because only recently have black people won enough influence that people listen when they say it offends them that there are statues celebrating people who fought to keep them enslaved.

    Since it was Democrats that put up the Confederate statues to begin with it's pretty funny that they now suddenly hate the statues....but the Dim Party is full of mindless useful idiots....

    I never heard a single black person whining about ANY statue. And for you to suggest that they had no valid opinions that were worthy of discussion until the year 2017 is insulting to every black person in America

    It's weird that now it's republicans who celebrate and are willing to kill in the name of protecting the statues, huh? But the republicunt party is full of inbred retards... useless idiots
