All monuments in the United States must be preserved, PERIOD.
Remember when Democrats first stated they only wanted the Confederate Army battle flag removed? They demanded statues put up to Confederate leaders, then the target was those dedicated to unknown Confederate soldiers.
Then it went to George Washington/Thomas Jefferson. Ulysses Grant and lastly Albert Pike.
Pike was a Confederate General who earlier in life had, as a lawyer and newspaper publisher, sued the U.S. government in the 1840-50s for cheating the Creek, Choctaw, and Chickasaw Indian tribes and demanded just compensation for lands seized unlawfully.
It should also be noted that the Confederate government had Pike charged with treason AGAINST the Confederacy.
It is amazing how utterly devoid the alleged “peaceful” rioters are of any history or, for that matter, their apologists in the Democrat party as well as CNN/MSNBC.
LET’S HAVE A SERIOUS DISCUSSION
Every living or deceased person has committed some type of sin in their lifetime, that they would not want anyone to know. You cannot judge a person. Like Washington, Jefferson, etc. as they were a product of a different time that most people have not taken the time nor been taught about.
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” George Orwell – 1984

If taking down Confederate statues, renaming schools, etc. in the South is going to help folks feel better about themselves…WHAT about the people in places like Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, Oakland, Baltimore, Columbus, St. Louis, Newark, and so many other places where there AREN’T any Confederate statues making life tough for them?
What are there excuses?
WHY ARE PROTESTERS AFRAID OF THE BALLOT BOX?
This isn’t hard. Put it to a vote in the municipalities where a statue or monument is present.
Why would you turn to mob destruction or executive action to solve any issues, when you could just as quickly be the victim of the same? Why haven’t these people bothered to learn about their system, heritage, and history, and they of the other 190 nations on earth so that they can truly understand the world they live in and make smart choices?
You can’t change history, nor can you hide it. However, you can learn from history, mistakes, AND successes. So we need to leave the records of our past stay intact, so current and future generations may still learn.
YOU KNOW WHAT’S SCARY
What’s scary about the current iconoclastic fad is how quickly it moved from Confederate statues to non-Confederate statues of people who may have owned slaves, to statues of those who fought AGAINST slavery such as abolitionist Colonel Hans Christian Heg who died as a Union soldier in the Civil War.
This is how unchecked lawlessness evolves. First is the justification, and then, with no opposition, chaos. I would suggest that anyone who supports the illegal destruction of statues read up on the French Revolution, and how quickly the killing of the guilty turned into the killing of everyone.
HOW FAR BACK SHOULD WE GO WITH THE ATTACK ON STATUES?
No statue deserves to fall any more than paint needs to be splattered on city streets or businesses need to be looted in the name of “justice.” It makes no sense, but the media continues to pump life into it.
How far back should we go? What about Ancient Greece? What about every single thing in history that seems unacceptable in today’s standard? It’s impossible to erase the past.
The media doesn’t realize how bad this makes collective ownership (socialism) look. A small mob taking control of something we all own, and doing whatever they want, including destroying it, causes people to favor private ownership.
