Controversial removal of Confederate monuments starts in New Orleans:
What did the Confederates believe in?
The Confederate States of America believed in several things that differed from the views of the North. Much of the South believed in the moral integrity of slavery. They believed that African-Americans were inferior to them. They were very protective of their “right” to own slaves.
What is next for the PC-ers; removing the history of the Confederate States from all of the history books?
Was it a very bad time in the history of the USA? Absolutely, BUT so were many other times and incidents that are not being removed from the American or world history.
If nothing else, all of the unfortunate incidents that were connected to that time period and all time other periods should be left intact as a reminder; not to go back there.
Removing a statue and the Confederate flag does not change history.
What about the black people that were slave owners? Are they to be X’ed out of the history of this country as well.
Our country caught a severe disease a few year back called PC-ism that is continuing to put a stranglehold on this country. It is disgraceful how the Silent Majority has allowed the PC-ers to trample all over them. The SM has become a doormat to these lunatics.
This disease has crept its way into just about every sector of our lives. Sports teams that have been bamboozled into changing their names – the way people address one another, such as Mr. or Misses is being trampled on because of being gender specific – restrooms are under attack because a few (VERY FEW) individuals can’t make up their minds what sex they would prefer to be. The list of idiotic examples is endless.
In searching the database it popped up 2,129 sports teams that reference Braves, Chiefs, Indians, Orangemen, Raiders, Redmen, Reds, Redskins, Savages, Squaws, Tribe and Warriors, as well as tribe names such as Apaches, Arapahoe, Aztecs, Cherokees, Chickasaws, Chinooks, Chippewas, Choctaws, Comanches, Eskimos, Mohawks
Should they all be erased from the history books like they never happened? Mankind should be able to look back at some of their mistakes so they do not repeat them. Taking down statues and flags will not change the history of our country.
Can anyone of the dissenters claim that the names were given to these sports teams for nefarious reasons? Nonsense, it was to compliment them.
A donkey is a donkey is a donkey, whether its name or label remains in the dictionary or it is removed.
If the PC-ers would put their energies toward something more constructive, like helping to educate or kids on how to become responsible, respectful, productive citizens instead of a flock of blind sheep jumping over a cliff; the way I see it, that would be a much more productive and worthy cause. I guess it their limited vision, constructive education is not PC!!
3/4 of these fools have no idea on what they are protesting. They do it to be accepted by their peers.
Children learn to relate to peers by engaging in peer relationships. Some children have problems making friends or “fitting in.” Often a vicious circle develops where a rejected child is given fewer and fewer opportunities by his peers to relate and thereby learn new skills. Lack of opportunity to participate normally in peer interaction is especially a problem for children who differ in some obvious way, either culturally, racially, or through some mental or physical disability. Parents and teachers should address issues of peer acceptance as early as possible in order to prevent loss of self-confidence and self-esteem .
I really don’t know if the words responsible and respectful are PC or not and really don’t care. I am not one of the flock.
