The concept is pretty easy to understand.

The current fascist talking point is that if local communities want to tear down Civil War Statues, then who are we to say otherwise? They conveniently leave off the fact that there is national pressure on these communities to adhere to their Political Correctness or face the consequences.

Fair enough.

In nearly 100% of these communities that have these statutes, they depend heavily upon tourist dollars to sustain them. In truth, many of them have little to recommend them as places to visit except that there has been some historically significant incident that has happened in, near, or around their communities. In other words, it is the Civil War history that brings in these tourist dollars.

So, it if it perfectly okay for the fascists to bring national pressure to remove these statues, then it is perfectly acceptable to withhold our dollars and visits to their communities.

Spread the word. For each town that removes a statue, places them on a no-visit list and then make it known that you intend to visit those communities that do not cave into this kind of PC pressure.

Write letters to your editor, hit up every social media you are associated with, and start writing the Congressmen and Senators that have these communities as their constituents.

If they truly are making a principled stand on this, then the loss of dollars won't matter to them.

Spread the word.

No statue shall be removed or defaced. If it is, it goes on the no-visit list.

They have every right to do as they wish in their community, including caving into violence and intimidation. That does not alter the fact that if they do, we should not reward them for their choices.

I think it could also be thrown into the category of "Peaceful Protest". eh? No bats, no guns, no cement filled soda cans. No cars running over people, no blocked traffic intersections.

Just plain old fashioned boycotting.

Where they have been since they were erected is just fine and there is no need to move them at all. If they wish to cave into PC intimidation, let them. I won't support their community nor a museum as a cop-out measure.

Yes with the Internet freely open and available people get to make choices. Propaganda to sell lies and shit dies a slow miserable death as people become more informed. That is how it should work in a government with a constitution based on the principals of liberty and individual freedom of choice.

That same principal can be applied to communities that give themselves over to the anti's who hate christians, etc.......

White Supremicists are a race creed or color that cannot be discriminated against. Not unlke the guys who like girls bathrooms, I suppose.

You can hate or dislike whatever, avoid it and don't support it. Christians who you appear to be labeling white supremacist are free to do the same. If you have an organ that defines you as male then it is really simple use the bathroom made for males. If some major dumb ass store like Target desires to have a different policy to treat you special and let you use the female bathroom when you are a male (excluding an emergency situation where the male's restroom is closed) we can also avoid spending money at that store or any other business that is pushing their social agendas on to us we fully disagree with.

They are 100% free to capitulate to a national campaign of terror against their history. We do not have to support them in their capitulation.

There's not a SHRED of hope or evidence that Maoist style cultural purges like this one would convert even ONE KKK nutter. NONE... Not gonna shrink their membership. MAYbE actually expand it.
