    What's wrong with revising something/anything into something better ???? Now I do agree that if anyone attempts or were to suggest that slaves were somehow ok with being slaves or that they were fighting for the south in so that they can remain slaves, then yes that's a crazy thing to do or suggest. Defending any form of slavery is an ignorant crazy thing to do.

    Now anyone revising something that was bad by making it good in every way possible is a good thing. Anything involving slavery directly, in my opinion cannot be revised into something good, but seperating slavery or racism from southern culture in order to revise that part of it by seperating it out, then that is alright.

    Recognizing heroic officers and soldiers on each side, and recognizing the heroic events that took place in war, the brilliant tactics, tacticians, the strategist of war, the sacrifices on each side, the suffering on each side, and this by historical accounts, statues and/or monuments is A-ok.

    Most just like we know today were being dragged into war by politicians who are corrupt, mis-leading or confused themselves in life. The blood is on their hands, but as for the average soldiers, their officers, and in some cases their generals, they had a job to do, and they just did it. To not remember their call of duty, their sacrifices made, and their huge losses that were suffered on both sides, would simply be a travesty of justice in this country. I can understand your opinion, and agree that anyone celebrating the events of the past other than to celebrate the ending of it, is just bored and looking for something to aggitate others with.

    Agenda's attempting to take the history of this nation, and to erase it or use it to do bad things is an un-exceptable deplorable thing. The best way to combat the past is to learn from it, and not run from it.

    The best way to relive it is to run from it or not learn from it. May not be the whites oppressing the people for whom they would have a problem with in life, but it could actually be the blacks or another attempting to do the same if history and it's failings are not retained in there historical context.

    It must be so sad to wake every morning with such searing hatred in your minds and hearts.

    To wake up every day and not have to be worried about being dragged out in the middle of the night never to be seen or heard again.

    I've seen it so consistent. Most of you had miserable childhoods right? Very common in the hate group.

    Most of ya have or had a bad marriage. Very consistent with your ultra selfish impulses and behavior. Settling for something never works.

    Insecure chronic jealousy of any ones traditions and happiness. A burning desire to see everybody as miserable as they are.

    You are usually very rude in public. That selfish and self centered child at work.

    Merry Christmas

    Thank you. And that's exactly what the Lost Cause Cult tried to do, from literally rewriting history books to whitewash the Confederacy into some "noble' thing, to throwing up all these statues and monuments, to erecting other monuments to the Ku Klux Klan, to pop culture like "The Clansman", "Birth of a Nation" and "Gone With the Wind". That's been the whole point all along.

    Makes one wonder why the relapse though ? Why the regret re-kindled after the south lost so many years ago ?? Is it that those accendants whose family members were sacrificed for (their ancestors in the cause), now see that the other's in which they're family members were sacrificed for, haven't been honoring or remembering the sacrifices made by whites for them, otherwise when attacking the whites by blanketing a race or not making sure that those white descendants for whom sacrificed for their family members are being recognized and treated with respect today, and this by honoring them all in the memorials for which they lay or have been memorialized in ?

    That might be the longest single sentence I've ever seen on this site. See if you can hammer it into English because I have no idea what it's saying. TIA.

    Thanks for the correction of location of Charlottesville AND especially the current history. I don't think we can criticize the locals for avoiding possible national scandal due to fringes clashing in their streets.

    Context is always crucial. As is the glaring deliberate omission by the OP that the town's concern is that TWO sides were both planning to infiltrate, not just one.

    I'm sure you were thinking of Charlotte, the big city in the south/central part of the state. Charlottesville is a couple hundred miles up I-81 in western Virginia. They're both named for the same Queen consort Charlotte but the Carolina one is about 20 times bigger.

    Charlottesville was a pre-planned riot situation. The city fathers and the state's governor did nothing to keep the parties apart from each other. In other cities, like Newnan, Georgia in 2018, the police kept the warring parties 150 yards away from each other at all times, and everyone went home in one piece. Keeping the libs equally far away from the Americans in Wake could have done the same.

    And it is not your place to breath.

    Who are you and what gives you the right to pass judgement on others ?

    Answer: You are a moronic left wing arrogant ass-hole who should ask Santa for a brain that functions.
