From John Podesta leaked emails (Hillary chairman):

Wikileaks

"Compare your opponent to Adolf Hitler.

This is your heavy artillery, for when your opponent is obviously right, and you are spectacularly wrong.

Bring Hitler up subtly. Say, That sounds suspiciously like something Adolf Hitler might say, or You certainly do remind me of Adolf Hitler."


Great job, Verriker, you made Podesta great again

LIVID!

Destroying history is never a good idea. What did those statues ever do to anyone? Is anyone any happier now that they are gone? Did destroying those relics give anyone a higher quality of life? No, it did not.

They were monuments to history. They can never be replaced. People who don't learn from history are bound to repeat it and you can't learn from something that has been erased by spoiled little brats.

I voted for Obama. I did not vote this last election. However if antifa keeps going out of control and throwing little fits I can guarantee you that I will never vote for another democrat in my life. I hope people know what they are doing because if they are driving me away, they are driving others away. I have a strong suspicion that if this kind of behavior continues the only way another democrat is going to enter the whitehouse will be through force.

I have been hesitant to say anything because it appears that anyone who voices an opinion that disagrees with a liberal is a white supremacist nazi that clearly wants slavery to be reinstated. However I can't hold my tongue any longer, I hit my limit with this bullsnow. So go ahead, call me what you want. Tell me just how stupid and ignorant I am because I don't want monuments to our sordid and horrible history taken down.

I don't think democrats acknowledge such facts, but that they mostly lost control of the follower groups they created in order to maintain a status quo unrest framework. Which now evolved into radicals with all the nonsense every radicalism generates, here is a  Fox news video resuming it quite well.

@Raemus:

Yep. Vandals vandalize. The nice thing about radicals is how predictable they are. Antifa wants what all such groups want: power. Removing statues by force is a demonstration of power, and power is a high. They'll be around for X amount of time before being rebranded and resold. They were preceded by "anti-racist action", who were the US offshoot/twin of "anti-fascist action" in West Germany in the 80s, who were preceded by other anarcho-left groups. Some degree of violence and iconoclasm is pretty standard in revolutionaries and has been for eons. Destroying monuments/images/tombs/art is not a "new low".



Looking at the original subject of Charlottesville, first and foremost, it is entirely within the discretion of the university to take something down on campus property.

But, to go a little deeper:

It is suspect if Lee himself would have approved of a big statue of himself. He was supportive post-war of removing obstacles that kept the memory of conflict alive because he feared it would incite further division in the future.

I'm not sure I buy the "it is history" argument. Architecture is part of history and so are books and realia within museums, but I think it is fairly well understood what the purpose of a statue or similar monument is: it is meant to glorify something.

Without going into long details on the politics of Antebellum America, let's just accept that the Confederacy is not looked upon in a very favorable light, and in a contemporary context, the Confederacy and those figures who are associated with it have regrettably become a surrogate golden calf for white nationalists to rally around. White nationalists net the largest contribution of acts of domestic terrorism in the US. The university hosts a broad range of clientele and students from all over the world and sooner or later it isn't so surprising that a Confederate statue would not be considered within the best interests of the campus image.

Nationalists out here renamed "Marshall Tito's square" to "Republic square", and claim how they "are glad the square does not bear the name of the mass-killer". Just saying both sides are equally something you wish to spit on, a lot of times.
