Last week, we witnessed the beginning of the removal of the confederate statues in the south. The battle in New Orleans to keep the statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis was removed as was 1 other confederate statue. Two more are to follow. This is just the beginning. How mush history in America will be removed because certain select groups of people claims it offends them. There are plenty of things that offend everyone, we do not erase or take down history.
For those that do not know, the United States of America was originally referred to as the Confederate States of America. Even Abraham Lincoln in 1948, claimed that the states had the right to secede from the Confederate Union of America. His view changed in 1860 when he became President and unfortunately this country engaged in civil war. The founders had not included the right to secede into the Constitution and it still is not well defined. Jefferson Davis was in Congress at the time secession was declared and left to become President of the South.
The argument that the Confederate flag represents racism is old and without substance. The confederate soldiers were Americans and the flag is not racist because a radical group uses it. That same group burns crosses and carry crosses, yet we do not ban them from churches. If we were to erase offensive structures in the USA, then let us start with mosques because they offend many of us. Monuments in certain parts of the world has been standing for thousands of years.
If we do not stop the actions of the extreme liberals now, when does it end? Why are they trying to erase American history? The liberals of today are nothing but obstructionists, people who are not in Congress or government for the best interest of the people. They are only in office for themselves and the select few that fund them. They are anti American and every action displays more of their anti american values. We, the people, are the only ones that can change this. We, the people, need to utilize our power to vote them out and to protect the landmarks of not just the sorth, but the entire country. Whats next? Should we take down Mount Rushmore?
