It has an escalating feeling to it where one side does something, the other side retaliates and things just seem to be spiraling worse and worse in the process. It's like both sides feel justified in their violence because of the other sides violence.
    The Neo Nazis and white supremacist groups were very limited in their impact except for rare occasions since the 70s. We had seen quite a bit of a rise in anti government militias and like groups Republic or Texas folk in the country for a long time. But in terms of impact, they usually have stayed low key with a few notable exceptions.
    The rise of Antifa (anarchists) and groups like BLM are definitely bringing out the crazies on the other side. And in large part it is (IMHO) because neither MSM nor government officials have called for a stop to the damage and destruction they do or even bothered to denounce it these groups as hate groups because they either support what they are doing or it would politically incorrect. Soooo, if your a hate group on one side that sees hate groups on the other not being scolded, then by God it's ok for us to come out agian as well.

    You Cowboy are absolutely correct.

    This board is an echo chamber for conservative ideology. We both been around a long time, and recognize that.

    A new poll says 62% of Americans support keeping Confederate monuments, including 52% of Northeasterners and 44% of African-Americans.

    It's stupid to take them down. Especially Lee. Anyone that knows anything about history knows that man was not pro-slavery. Jefferson was more pro-slavery than him and there are statues of him all over the country that people adore.

    This is likely going to cause a shit storm, but here you go, since it was brought up.

    Lee and the Confederates were traitors at worst, at best foreign combatants. Why should the United States of America, memorialize them, take slavery out of it if you want. We don't have statues memorializing Benedict Arnold or Hitler.

    (Lee owned Slaves so I don't see how he couldn't be pro slavery)

    Statues memorializing our presidents, despite their flaws, is understandable. Statues memorializing enemy combatants/traitors/foreign invaders, people that literally wanted to destroy our Country? Not so much
