  2. Actually the subject has been discussed in this forum more than once. And in the FFA there was a 10 page thread with over 500 posts entitled: Do you personally agree with taking down confederate monuments? https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/756188-do-you-personally-agree-with-taking-down-confederate-monuments/#comment-20135284
  3. Maybe something to do with the fact there are probably less than 5000 communists in this country (and those numbers are generously estimated by Communist Party USA). No one really cares about communism any more Max, except a few descendants of The John Birch Society who still see it as a thread to this country.
  4. Meanwhile in other statue/monument related news... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/seattle-lenin-protest-jack-posobiec_us_59955bb3e4b0acc593e53b45?ncid=tweetlnkushpmg00000016&section=politics World’s Saddest Right-Wing Protest Draws 7 People To Seattle’s Lenin Statue The group was apparently led by notorious right-wing troll and conspiracy theorist Jack Posobiec. Far-right “Pizzagate” conspiracy theorist Jack Posobiec tweeted videos and photos Wednesday showing him leading a group of people protesting a Vladimir Lenin statue in Seattle. Video shows Posobiec leading the group in a chant of “tear it down, tear it down” as the protesters — wearing “Make America Great Again” caps and holding placards bearing phrases like “Lenin is Hitler” and “Alt Left Hate” — marched around the statue. It appears that about 7 people, including Posobiec, attended the small turnout.
  5. David Frum‏ @davidfrum 6m6 minutes ago Admit it: you've already forgotten that not even 3 weeks ago, Trump urged police to crack suspects' heads on hoods of squad cars
  6. Shows them he knows how to be tough with Muslim terrorists (how many knew the story was false even with the repeated debunking last year?).
  7. And how many times did we hear in this forum that Obama was a divider and not a uniter and missed his opportunity to help bring this country together?
  8. Judd Legum‏ @JuddLegum 59m59 minutes ago White supremacy is not really about free speech or statues. It's about white supremacy.

  10. I never thought I would see the day where the President thinks that monuments to people who supported slavery are beautiful and irreplaceable.
  11. Nate Silver‏ @NateSilver538 2m2 minutes ago So far, polls are pretty mixed on whether Charlottesville has affected Trump's approval rating. Wait for more before jumping to conclusions.
  12. Eli Lake‏ @EliLake 15m15 minutes ago I know this may sound controversial in the current moment we're in, but I think the good guys won the civil war.
  13. Um, saying that white supremacists who were carrying torches and chanting Nazi and anti-Semitic slogans were "some very fine people" qualifies as Off-The-Rails. What other president has had good things to say about Neo-Nazis?
