    I mean, at least twice a month, the pseudocons on this forum start topics to tell us that Confederates were racist Democrats and bad, bad, bad people.


    So why is the Right defending those statues of evil Democrats? Hmmmm? Why were they sending out of state protesters to Virginia? Hmmmm?


    Oftentimes, two pseudocons will start the same kind of topic on the same day. It's almost as if someone is telling all the tards this shit on a Tard Network.


    So why is the Right defending a Democrat statue? Why?

    Why do the progressives have an issue with historical memorials?

    The pseudocons spend more energy on this forum trashing racist Confederates than the left. In fact, I can't recall any lefties starting topics to whine about Confederates.

    But at least once a month, a pseudocon does.

    So with all their whining about those old timey Democrats, why is the Right getting upset at taking down an old Democrat statue? Why are they defending those racists?

    Hmmmmm?

    Same reason they don't want God removed from our society.

    Leftist sociopaths like you want government to be God.

    History still needs to be looked at thats why. Not erased. It's a concept probably way beyond you and I doubt if it can be explained to you. There are many levels on why retaining symbols of history are important regardless of whether they are good or bad to some people.

    Your guess is as good as any. Of the reasons I've thus heard, nary of them holds water.

    That argument does not pass muster, though for weak analysts and cogitators it apparently does. I explain the rational insufficiency of that line here: CDZ - FĂȘting losers is not what winning states do. The short is that history is not a collection of statues, town names, bridges and so on. Its events do not change or disappear merely because they are not lauded and given places of prominence.

    Would you compromise by having a plaque on each confederate statue reminding the reader that this person was a traitor who abandoned his oath in the name of defending slavery?
