    After all, Hitler is part of their heritage. And he didn't try to destroy Germany.

    Today's Confederate Republicans vigorously fight to keep Confederate Monuments put up decades after their bid to destroy the United States and keep millions enslaved. They insist it's part of their "heritage".

    Hitler never enslaved anyone and didn't try to destroy his own country. True, they did kill millions of Jews. But the numbers are unknown how many blacks were killed under Confederates in the Deep South. Some would argue that dead is better than being a slave.

    So should Germany put up monuments to Hitler? After all, it's been decades since WWII.

    I heard there was a Barack Obama high school already. Probably some USN training vessel in the future too. Go figure.

    So far, Republicans can't think of a single reason not to.

    Um, actually, Hitler did enslave a lot of people. They used Soviet slave labour as well as Jewish, Czech, Baltic states people, even Italians....

    And yes, he did end up destroying Germany.

    That being said, Confederate statues are an eye sore.

    You really should stop lying. The confederate states did not try to destroy the United States. they simply did not want to be a part of it any longer. As far as the war between the states it is part of history and should be left that way, not destroyed by weak kneed little girlie men like you.

    Generally monuments are not constructed to honor people just because they are part the heritage of a nation. Most moments are constructed to honor those who the people at the time felt they desired the honor. I seriously doubt that many Germans after the WWII devastation of the homeland felt any honor should be bestowed on the man that lead the country into a war that destroyed the nation.

    It would just confuse them.

    Why doesn't Germany build monuments to Adolph Hitler?

    For the same reason Russia doesn't build monuments to Stalin and Lenin.........
