These monuments need to be taken down and replaced by the winners of the Civil War.

You want to honor your heritage? Stop honoring the losers.

You want to honor the rebels? Honor those that rebelled against the Crown...and WON.

Your mass-produced pacifiers serve only for you to suck on you backwards, hillbilly, sister-farking troglodytes.

When my south rises up, I pretty much have to take care of it myself.   10 year relationship plus 2 cats and a dog in the way means I'm probably not getting any help.  Fortunately, my south isn't full of white pride..... wait, it kind of is.  The pride is gone, it's just maintenance at this point.

Being the primary founders of American democracy, supplying most of the nation's early presidents, and pretty much writing US culture in general and political culture especially from the ground up from the mid 1700s through, well, the Civil War?

I mean... did your history class skip all the chapters between the Revolutionary War and the Civil War?  The reason slavery was a persistent problem in the first place was that the South was initially such an overwhelming cultural and economic force that it got to almost unilaterally define everything that made America "America" instead of "the colonies".  The north was basically playing catch-up at best until much later, with the first real sign that the balance was shifting toward parity being the Missouri Compromise in 1819.

There's not really anything to be proud of in the civil war itself, but it's not like the South just farking sat around and twiddled its thumbs for almost a century until it was finally time to secede.  There's plenty of heritage there.

The issue with the statues is that they don't represent that heritage.  They were erected long after the civil war, during the rise and peak of the KKK as a political force, explicitly as a threat to black people.

A) My history class didn't cover the US civil war because my history class was situated in Sub-Saharan Africa
B) While good points, why do they always claim it's about Heritage, not hate, while clutching one of the Battle Flags of one of the Confed states, or at a Confederate Civil War monument, or waving some form of Klan or Nazi insignia?

Your points are good, but they never seem to mention those specific points when talking about their ''Heritage''. At least what i've heard.

We kinda are.  The only thing this outbreak of Nazism has done is showcase just how full of shiat the movement is and the destruction of several monuments that would have remained standing for a bit if these assholes hadn't decided Trump was their new savior.

In a way, Trump failed them too:  instead of entering into a New Age of Jim Crow and Hatred, we're seeing how pathetic these pasty losers are while taking down and destroying their feeble figleafs.  Family?  Heritage?  No, it's bullshiat....all designed because you know the only way to get people on the GOP side is to put another mask on hatred.   At this point they would have better luck if they told me Trump's hair was real.

It is the most telling point of all, though.
These people seem to think that they have a voice that a "majority" of some kind relates to.  The reality is that the more they show their faces, the more people from the exact opposite group show up and tell them to STFU.

Hillary Clinton did more to push many voters to the Republican candidate then those who truly voted for Trump. Her collusion with the DNC to marginalize Sanders, her treatment of classified emails, and her constant lying about the smallest of things inflated the GOP ranks. Many people I've met that voted for Trump aren't racists or bigots, so much as they truly hated the DNC candidate.

Don't worry, he's a lying idiot. America wasn't a concept until Massachusetts and Connecticut settlers thought up the concept of freedom. It was a Great Awakening of sorts, there were two of them. They were centered on interpreting the word of God for yourself and the valuable role that education plays in fulfilling that role. That's Real America, and it's in southern New England. If the South has any heritage, it is being a bunch of lazy fat pig farkers that let their slaves do all the work while Real Americans read books and went to school. Every few decades we have to do this dance where they get slapped down.

It's still amazes me that many on the left refuse to admit that they fielded the worst Presidential candidate since Mondale in '84. And that many voters for Trump just couldn't stand voting for the Wicked Witch from Arkansas.

First, I didn't vote for Trump. I realize that in your inability to remain objective in your beliefs anyone that didn't support Clinton and didn't vote for her must be a Trumper, but the reality is I voted Johnson / Weld.

Second, the 63 million voters that elected Trump didn't do so to align themselves with racists anymore then those who voted for Sanders were aligned with socialists. Sure, some were, but the majority of them probably couldn't stand the thought of voting for that liar and manipulator known as Hillary. She was just that terrible a candidate.

You are correct.

One salient point, however, is that many of these neo Nazis have nothing to do with with any southern heritage whatsoever.

From the Charlottesville riot, the "crying Nazi" was from New Hampshire. A "garage beating Nazi" was from Ohio. The "murdering Nazi" was from Ohio. Several of the outed Nazis from the tiki torch rally were from Minnesota, Nevada, and California.

Whatever point submittard was trying to make, they failed. Overwhelmingly, southerners are the ones protesting the Nazis and calling for the removal of the statues. Southerners were the ones being beaten in Charlottesville. A southern woman was murdered by a northern Nazi in Charlottesville.

Didn't attend any of those rallies..  been in Richmond since the mid 60s, like the city and the people.. Monument Avenue is high dollar.. big beautiful houses, tree lined median down the middle, VCU nearby which accounts for the awesome scenery on display on warm and sunny days.. plus, there are statues up and down the street.. old generals and such, plus one of Arthur Ash.. looks like he is getting ready to smack some kids with a book and a tennis racquet.. you need to visit around Christmas, too.. extremely artistic lighting displays..  yeah,  people are freaking out about the statues.. don't get it, but then again, I don't run around looking for something to offend me..  to me, they are works of art symbolizing the past.. they are also targets for drivers to hit..  the thought processes of then are not what we believe now, or they shouldn't be.. jeez, folks.. grow up !   Quit dredging up shait from the past just to stir up folks that have nothing better to do except get pissed off about something..
   The statues are Monument Avenue decorations.. that is all.. they have no bearing on anything of today, they attract visitors that are interested in history.. their presence (not meaning) makes Monument Avenue what it is, along with the buildings and churches.  Some people just have to destroy things, just because.. cats knock shait off of counters just because. (got seven)..  we  should be smarter than animals, but very many are not..  If you don't like the statues, GTFO and GBTW..  Just go away and take your attitudes and beliefs with you.   Take the racism crap too.. most of us get along just fine.

Your dislike for Clinton not being based on any policy items, it appears that you were willing to risk a Trump presidency in order to say that you voted your conscience. 

You voting your conscience allowed an even bigger "liar and manipulator" into office.

Monument Avenue is high dollar.. big beautiful houses, tree lined median down the middle, VCU nearby which accounts for the awesome scenery on display on warm and sunny days.. plus, there are statues up and down the street.. old generals and such, plus one of Arthur Ash.. looks like he is getting ready to smack some kids with a book and a tennis racquet.. you need to visit around Christmas, too.. extremely artistic lighting displays..  yeah,  people are freaking out about the statues.. don't get it, but then again, I don't run around looking for something to offend me..  to me, they are works of art symbolizing the past.. they are also targets for drivers to hit..  the thought processes of then are not what we believe now, or they shouldn't be.. jeez, folks.. grow up !   Quit dredging up shait from the past just to stir up folks that have nothing better to do except get pissed off about something..
   The statues are Monument Avenue decorations.. that is all.. they have no bearing on anything of today, they attract visitors that are interested in history.. their presence (not meaning) makes Monument Avenue what it is, along with the buildings and churches.  Some people just have to destroy things, just because.. cats knock shait off of counters just because. (got seven)..  we  should be smarter than animals, but very many are not..  If you don't like the statues, GTFO and ...


Hello fellow Richmonder!

Our city made me proud yesterday when the police had to lead the Nazis away for the Nazi's own safety.

And I must admit, the statue of angry Arthur Ashe taking the children's' books and beating them with a tennis racket has made me ask WTF were they thinking when they chose that design for two decades so far.

It wasn't even dozens of protesters. It was 6 people.
