Twice As Many Americans Think Confederate Monuments “Should Remain In All Public Spaces” ...

George Washington's picture

A new Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll finds finds that twice as many Americans want to keep Confederate monuments in public spaces as want to remove them:

The Aug. 18-21 poll found that 54 percent of adults said Confederate monuments “should remain in all public spaces” while 27 percent said they “should be removed from all public spaces.” Another 19 percent said they “don’t know.”

Postscript: Whatever you think, please don't fall for the old divide-and-conquer dog-and-pony show.

...but in the cockeyed world of usa today, up is down, down is up, and minorities rule.

Return to confederation, restore the original constitution.

I would observe the establishment morons cannot rewrite history by removing artifacts that have been in place for decades....

Monuments represent a consensus of the time, by virtue of being we are byproducts of this consensus, it is part of us, we are made from it. They serve to reflect on who we are and who were our ancestors and what was significant for them to remind us.
Their destruction/displacement is an antithesis of who was are, but more importantly it does not change the past.

The jewish ANTIFA was originally a creation of Leon Trotsky the marxist jew supremacist that was responsible for the wholesale slaughter of millions of Christians in Russia & Ukraine. The Holodomor was the extermination of millions of Ukranians at the hands of their self appointed murderous jewish supremacists.

The wholly exagerated and patently false claims of the holocaust is just that- a jew inspired propaganda lie, that the jew historians, media & hollywood has cast over the world. A pure delusion created to cover their own factual genocide of millions and millions of white Christians.

Just try to get a book published through the jew owned publishing houses that actually tell the documented truth (regarding the jew supremacist influence) about the history of the past one hundred years. The jew wont allow it. Private publishing houses have thank God been publishing the works but the jew supremacist owned press will not mention them, amazon bans them, critics ignore them, so they are pushed to the margin. The public at large are never aware that they even exist.

The supremacist ethnocentric jew is the problem-Period. In history they have been removed from place after place because of their ethnocentric "to hell with the goyim" ways. Claudius Ceasar threw them out of Rome, King Ferdinhand & Queen Isabella threw them out of Spain, King Edward I threw them out of England. There are 106 other well documented cases of these pernicious anti-societal jew supremacists being expelled-all for very legitimate reasons.

Yes, it confirms US is probably the second most racist country in the world.

The first you may ask.  Well it's the one that gets you labelled as anti-Semitic if you state the truth about it openly.

Clearly you don't get out much.

Just off the top of my head: South Africa and Zimbabwe if you're white, just about all of Latin America if you're black or brown, the UK, again if you're black or brown, and China if you're anything but Chinese....lol.

The city of Davis, CA (including UC Davis) needs to be renamed too... it is untenable to have memories of Jefferson Davis come up with it.

Many may think they don't want these statues removed, but they'll cave to the "New Robspirrian Reign of Media Mob Terror".

The LEFT will continue to bully this into a win.

Watch them segway into questioning the idea of the Founders as slave owners, after they start to remove Presidential statues et cetera, who owned slaves, and seek to destroy the constitution, to be replaced by one of their own creation, since it was created by slave owners.

OJO

So is this a poll where suddenly the results aren't called fake? I am guessing if the results were reversed that I'd be reading how it was rigged/fake.

I do gather the majority have no issues with the statues remaining as they grasp it is moronic to take them down.

I thought that erasing history was the sort of thing that only went on in the USSR.

Thats what the jew supremacist bolsheviks did in 1945. They erased, best they could the fact that they had slaughtered and starved to death Millions upon Millions of white Christians in Russia, the Ukraine & Poland. 

How they did it was to start a massive lie near the end & immediately after the end of jew-warII. The incredulous lie was latter in the 1970's to be dubed the holocaust. Which we all now know through extensive research, documentation, admissions, frauds, admitted false testimony, scientific forensic analysis, & the finally released Russian, German, British & American archives that had been unaccesable for decades, that the whole jewish supremacist narrative of the holocaust has been unequivocally proved false.    

Thank you Ernst Zundel !  An exrtremely courageous and respected man among men.

We won't have to worry about statues and monuments in THIS country much longer.

We won't have a country real soon now.

You have to give George Webb credit.

This shit is jaw dropping entertainment if nothing else.

Seeing corruption unfold nakedly all over Washington DC in real time is WAAAY better than any daytime soap opera on TV (Even the Spanish channel).

The Cover Up Op
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhJ0kJBMolo

George says the FBI has finally uttered the phrase “Stolen Sate Secrets" and "the Awan Brothers" in the same room together. … (Some press officer/agent is probably cleaning out his desk right now.)

I wonder how the FBI is going to worm out of that? …. Maybe they will just send it to Mueller or Jeff Sessions to ‘flop the investigation good’.

When the Icelandic parliament building was built in 1881 Iceland was still under the danish crown, and because of that, there is a crown on top of it with the number 9 below, since the King at that time was Christian IX.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4033/4223028834_89353aaf29_b.jpg

If we were idiots, we would of course send a moron to the roof of the parliament building with a hammer to smash up the crown. We are no longer under danish rule, and lots of people resented being controlled by a foreign entity. Sometimes for a good reason.

But fortunately, people realise that this is a part of our history, and it will remain there for as long as the building stands.

It is not clever to try to erase history. Its better to learn from it.

For people like Pelosi, ideology trumps history. History is actually dangerous to them, since it invalidates their ideology.

My relatives were not famous enough to get statues. To me these statues represent my ancestors that died during that war which like all wars was fought for the rich and powerful. Even my ancestors that returned home had their life fucked up by the rich and powerful.

What do the following all have in common?

  • Bolshevik (Communist) Revolution in Russia
  • Communist Chinese Cultural Revolution
  • Wahabi Muslim Uprisings in Afghanistan and Iraq/Syria
  • Ukrainian coup in 2014

In every one of these events roving mobs went around destroying cultural monuments or artifacts.

Maybe we should destroy all Roman antique vestiges and the pyramids since both empire had slaves of all colors. Destroying your historical monuments is destroying yourselves or do you agree with all the destructions commited by ISIS?

Nearly every culture engaged in overt slavery from late 1800's back through all of recorded history: Indians, Mayans, Africans, Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, Goths, Chinese, Japanese, etc, etc.  So therefore all of antiquity should be erased from history!  Tear down the icons and burn those scrolls! </sarc>

Now they just send you to college for "free" and voila you become a debt serf.  Tricky.

Some American blacks owned slaves pre-civil war US.

What you imply is also true there were free blacks and free black communities in the pre-civil war US.
