Keep it up.  They can always make new statues of Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, and Columbus.


Snowflakes are shocked to learn that people in the Dark Ages were like life then: nasty, brutish and short.  But only if they were of European descent.  All the other murderous warlords, slave traders, rapists, petty tyrants, and generally vile people were probably only doing it because they learned it from us.  (Narrator: They didn't.)

So the people who tore down the Lenin statues were Communists?

No public debate. No legislation. No lawful action.

It's not about whether or not the statue is controversial, it's about a violent mob, a feckless mayor and the absence of the rule of law.

I'm personally surprised that US flags are still allowed to be flown in public spaces.

I don't think it's enough to help Trump get re-elected. Hes too big of an idiot.

The ugly strains of nouveau racism, class politics, revisionist history, and anti-Americanism that Democrats are whole-heartedly embracing may help the GOP in Congress, though.

I have no love for Columbus or his statue, but liberals are working overtime to toss the baby out with the bathwater these days.

Now that I have to agree with.
Me, personally, I am half tempted to vote for Trump, because we all have become too comfortable with censorship.

What exactly is inflammatory about calling Trump a fascist?
I'm not pulling it out of thin air.
He got mad that someone recused them self. He didn't have enough sense to not challenge someone else's attempt at integrity.
He questioned an election that he won.

silvervial: Excellent! And I'm glad the city said they support the protesters.

It's about damn time all this racist shiat came down. Enough is enough!

And you better believe I'm as behind Native Americans as I am Black people and everyone else suffering under systemic racism and bigotry.

When I was a young girl, I read a ton of "western" paperback books as my dad and I criss-crossed the country on his final postings as an AF officer. I had a lot of time in the car and this was pre-everything. Anyway, I read "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" and became enraged (I'm 12 at the time). I devoured everything about Native Americans I could get my hands on, fiction and non, and became very much a supporter of Native American rights and supportive of their grievances. I considered the whole thing to be "very unfair!"

Flash forward a few years, I have a job in the cafeteria of a Base Exchange and one of the older women who worked with me had a tattoo of a blue paw on her hand between her thumb and forefinger. In those days, it was VERY uncommon to see an ordinary person with a tattoo, let alone a woman. So, once when we were alone, I asked her about it.

She became very angry and defensive, and me being 16 and easily upset, I started to tear up and asked her why she was angry with me. I think she saw then that there was exactly zero mean intent in me, so she explained that it was her tribal tattoo. I think she was startled by my gasp of joy and delight! I had met a Native American for the first time! I was very silly and excited and asked her a ton of questions, and I must have been so puppy-ishly endearing that she finally smiled and laughed with me and told me about when she got the tattoo and just like that we were friends, even though she had to be thirty years older at least. She told me that she had never told anyone else at our workplace what the tattoo meant to her, and that made me feel special.

She also told me about a bunch of times she'd been mocked and discriminated against, which made me feel terrible. She let me cry for her.


If you are going to take the side of the people who have lost lands, life, and freedoms from another people, cry for the entire human race as invasions are a universal ideal and not something invented by the white man.  Ask the Irish and Scots about that and you cannot deny they are white, the original Britons invaded by the norse and romans, tribes of peoples wiped out and succeeded by another in the middle east...it goes on throughout history and will continue to go on as long as someone has what someone else wants.  Even the native Americans took their land from weaker tribes.  The plight of the African slaves are different because they were not conquered by the white man for the most part, they were mostly sold by other African tribes who did the conquering to have slaves to trade.  Does that place less guilt on the white men of the past for having to do less work for more profit, no, but it illustrates that conquering is a human trait, not white one.

The Repeated Meme: Aren't the Columbus statues there because previous governments wanted the WASPs to not hate Italian immigrants and treat them as sub-human?

If so, then Subby probably should have gone with the Ironic tag.

People have been demanding a more diverse curriculum featuring the breadth of the American experience for decades but people in power didn't want to listen. It's becoming apparent that the only way for people to enact real change is by mob rule. It will be interesting to see if the wealthy elites of America will start listening or if one day the mob is going to have to come for them.

Do you guys get an email every month that features talking points to cut and paste into discussions? Your arguments always sound the same and even use the same language. Just because it happens doesn't mean the conquered people have to like it or accept it. History isn't a boss fight then a "GAME OVER" and credits roll.

Hell, I thought celebrating Christopher Columbus was bogus even back in third grade.

Had watched an episode of "In Search of" and then maybe a month later our history teacher, Sister Mary Ann, was teaching us that Christopher Columbus "discovered" America.  Up went my hand.... oooh, oooh, call on me Sister! I want to tell you that I learned from Spock that the Vikings were there before Columbus, and before that the Indians.  But nooooo..... she saw me with my hand raised but totally ignored me and continued with her lesson.  I had my hand up I'm sure a good five minutes before I gave up.

ecmoRandomNumbers: cman: When revolutions begin, symbols of the old regime are the first to be taken down

This isnt erasing history, this is about creating a new future

In the Hungarian revolution of 1956 the citizens were highly patriotic and wanted to wave flags. But the only flags they had were ones that had a communist symbol on them. So they just cut the middle out and waved those around.

[dailynewshungary.com image 850x566]

Nothing like this has happened to our flag yet, but it would not surprise me one bit if some group decides to copy what these folks did in '56 and cut out a big hole in the middle and wave that flag around.

I say we make Puerto Rico a state and give Texas to Mexico, that way we don't have to change the number of stars in the flag. We could take one of the stripes off and make Rhode Island a county in Connecticut, because come on, it shouldn't even be a state. And it definitely shouldn't have 2 senators. There are ranches in Arizona bigger than Rhode Island.

What the city wants to do is serve as a national model, particularly with how we've done with protesting. We've seen people who have taken to the streets, we have supported them. We are going to continue to support it. That's a full stop."
