    Removal of Confederate Monuments

    I mean... I get the sentiment but I'm not sure if I agree with removal of historical monuments. The Confederacy is stained with the notion of it was only abut slavery which is incorrect.

    But I could understand in places like Alabama or South Carolina why removal of them could be a good idea too.

    Why?

    There's not a single good reason to remove any of these statues other than to make liberals feel good. And even then they'll just find something else to be outraged about until we are all tranny blue haired xirs.

    If it would change anything for the better I would support it. However, it will likely only reward bad behavior and move the goalposts. They’ll simply set their sights on other targets and go after them next.

    It's feel-good, symbolic politics. Leaders showing the media/sheep that they'll be happy to break/remove stone monuments but won't do anything concrete to materially uplift the black community.

    I have my doubts of if the confederacy was really that more racist than the north during those times. Remember history is written by the winners, and the narrative that you started the deadliest war in US history for the sake of freeing innocent black slaves sounds pretty good.

    I agree with both of these. It's more or less for the optics and not necessarily anything to elicit true change.

    The Confederacy's economy did rely on slavery a bit and the North was free but there's some places with racist sentiments up in the Northeast to this day. Boston has a lot of permeating racism srs.

    I agree OP. Should also tear down all the black historical statues as it shows how terrible the past was and how terrible the present is.

    Liberals will NEVER be happy or even content, they seek to reshape the world to make themselves feel HAPPY, however you can never be happy until you love yourself, and liberals have a deep self hatred, especially whites.

    It's much closer to a psychological condition than a political ideology.

    On the one hand they put up monuments to their loserdom.

    On the other hand, taking the monuments down doesn't solve any problems.

    The people that want to take them down annoy me but I can empathize with them-they symbolize a system and are monuments to that system that once repressed them. I wish people would find something better to fight over, but am glad I have no skin in this game. I know it's going to get worse tho when the founding fathers get the same treatment.

    Been a long time since I studied it but if I recall the north only was anti slavery once they had no use for slaves(instead using child labor lol), and the rest of the world was done with slavery. Meanwhile the south was highly dependent on the cotton/slave industry

    Next they tear down any statues of the founding fathers because they were all racists.

    It's better to try to erase history than to try to understand it in context or learn from it.

    Goalposts is right

    After they've taken all these down they'll move onto other great men of the past who had indiscretions that wouldn't fly in today's time period.


    I think it's better to leave history as it is and work on the future

    uhhhh no. Read any of the southern founding fathers' journals from their teen/young adult years. A LOT recognized slavery was weird as chit and didnt do anything about it.

    Its not popular to express this but sometimes in life I really don’t know the answer. Part of me thinks its a little over the top to remove them. Part of me is thinking of every guy ive ever met obsessed with confederate history. Most of them had a screw loose, just like any guy obsessed with the german side during WW II.

    I lol'd at the Texas Ranger statue being removed, because it has Police symbolism.

    It was kinda like the Taliban mindset, when blowing up the Buddha statues, it's a similar ideology weirdly. They really think monuments and statues are causing problems of the day or maybe it's an act of token dominance, either way it is meaningless act that doesn't further their cause and merely says more about the backward doctrinal thinking of these overly emotional and one dimensional group. Btw all the Taliban achieved was to push further , lose power and then have a rich Chinese couple rebuilt the statues again.

    I don't agree with monuments in general anyway, there is a vanity to them that usually hold no cultural value to people that aren't from that era. A country needs more than a flag or a monument to rally around.

    Serious question, what does keeping monuments around have to do with understanding the past or giving it context? Nobody is talking about erasing Confederate history from the books, or even not teaching it. If anything people are calling for more transparency and accuracy in school curriculums.

    I've been in the south all of my life (alabama) and honestly i feel like they should be removed and relocated to a museum... Sure a predisposed group of people will disagree, most of those figures to my people represent cruel things done to people of my color we must not forget history but those symbols and statues keep a indescribable hatred and prejudice Tension in the air I've never Met a person here who celebrated those insignia that was not prejudice or racist

    The thought police on reddit would call you an uncle tom for even luke warm support of preserving historical monument.
