Facist/Anti Facists in the USA today.

This is a crazy story.

TBH I think it's probably a bit off insisting the statu is removed. Regardless of him owning slaves General Lee is seen as the leader of the Confederate South in a huge moment in US history. Why re-write history. Some would want Churchill's statue removed.

But open fighting with the police withdrawing and letting them get on with it and some idiot driving a car into protestors and killing at least one.

Also angry people, mostly men, mostly a bit thick, radicalised online, start driving vehicles into people they think are their enemy

Sound familiar?

Yet more Americans killed by other Americans.

Yet more Americans killed by far right terrorism.

Wonder which foreign Muslims Trump will blame today?

That's incredibly naive. Why did the Civil War come about? What did the Confederate army seek to defend?

The Confederate military became the greatest of masters—an institution that many believed would assure the survival of slavery and white supremacy.

The fascists protesting are singing pro slavery songs - it is not about the statue it is about the rise of the Klan and other fascist organisations. Emboldened by Trump.

Weird that the civil war to end slavery saw slavery continue after it, including in the north, and the American military for example still segregating it's troops on racial grounds right up to ww2.

Can see why some want to rewrite history.

Trump ran a campaign based on fear and hatred. It's hardly a surprise that things like this are happening - he basically greenlighted it.

Trump couldn't say that - firstly it requires more than 42 characters, and secondly, Steve Bannon and Sean Hannity wouldn't let him.

Stalin was a huge leader of Russia in WW2, Hitler was a huge leader of Germany in WW2, not sure there are many statues to them left.

Statue, no statue, whatever - it's the motivation for wanting the statue there and what it represents to the people annoyed by its removal that is cause for concern. That's putting it lightly, obviously.

That many people do not rush out and buy tiki torches and shout about white lives mattering because 'they're concerned about their heritage'.

The civil war is alive and well in the south. Scary when you realize it is now being fought openly and not being condemned by so many including our leaders

I know that.

But is there any surprise that this kijnd of polemic occurs because if people making shite modern day decisions to remove statues or rename something. There seems to be a 'right on' committee going around with clipboards intent on causing friction.

If we find a black hero that has a few skeleton in his cupboard. Wife beating, drug abuse, womanising or somesuch can we start removing their street names and images. I'll start with Ray Charles.
