Case in point is what is happening in Tampa Bay. As is vogue these days, Confederate statues and memorials are being removed as quickly as ISIS obliterates pieces of history in Syria. And what Confederate memorials and statues still remain on public property are living on borrowed time.

What do you think? Should the Confederate statues and memorials stay or should they go?

    This really upsets me because some of the statutes are of young men as a sample of their honor. Taking them to the grave yard is an example of how honor is treTed today.

    I have room in my front yard, if they don’t mind paying for the shipping.

    A thought. If they want to obliterate our past, then why not obliterate every little thing the Clinton’s, Obama’s & their ilk has done over the past almost 20 years…just wishing.

      That’s because their stuff is progressive, this stuff is regressive (at least to them).

    History is history, like it or not. If we do not remember what has gone before us, (our past) then it shall be repeated. Remember, now our guns are better and we can kill more people with a lot less effort. Keep the Damn Statues in place. We need the remembrance. How can we prevent one side or the other acquiring a nuke and using it on the opposing side?

    They should not be removed. This is as much our heritage as Martin Luther King is to the black people. God knows they have a right their heros as does everyone.We can support Cinco Maya day but not southern heros! It’s ridiculous.

    As an African American one would think I approve of this trend,but in reality I don’t! These monuments are part of American history and should be treated as such. Not all history is pretty, but to remove these monuments for the purposes of political correctness is just wrong and does a disservice to the memory of that conflict!!

      As a WASP, thru no part of my own. And as a southerner, by birth, choice & circumstance, I fully concur with you. History is history.

    Removing these monuments changes only the the perception of our history, not the facts of what really happened in the past. A wise person once said, if we do not remember the mistakes of the past we are destined to repeat them. Obliteration of these monuments to historical events does not re-write history, it just attempts to sweep what libturds deem to be unforgivable transgressions under the rug and ignores the events that brought America to the pinnacle of societal greatness. This is not only dangerous it ignores the very things that make America the great force for good that it has been and continues to be. We as a society have changed for the better through time and destruction of these monuments ignores and devalues the reasons for the changes we have made. Get over it and move on SNOWFLAKES, stop destroying our historical monuments that document our growing pains as a nation. Leave your safe places and live in the real world where things are not perfect, and work to make things better as we have in the past. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

      Mark Cooley J,
      That wise person was historian George Santayana and he was correct when he said it almost 100 years ago. I’m an old fart and he died a year after my birth.
      Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
      He also pointed out the following so many years ago.
      A child educated only at school is an uneducated child.
      and
      Fanaticism consists of redoubling your effort when you have forgotten your aim.
      I think the last quite more likely describes those who want to take down the monuments along with stopping display of the Creche at Christmas or a Minora during Passover.
      These are not snowflakes; but, fascists who need to redefine history so they can rewrite it in their own image to show how and why capitalism is a horrible system and why we should all embrace their socialist leanings.

    This might make some conspiratorially-minded person think there is a link between ISIS’ ideology and the liberal-left apologists ideology.
