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

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.

From the linked article:

"Responses to the poll were sharply split along racial and party lines, however, with whites and Republicans largely supportive of preservation. Democrats and minorities were more likely to support removal."

Not surprising.

EDIT- Wait, there's more!

"The Reuters/Ipsos poll was conducted online in English throughout the United States, gathering responses from 2,149 people, including 874 Democrats and 763 Republicans. It has a credibility interval, a measure of accuracy, of 2 percentage points for the entire group and 4 percentage points for the Democrats and Republicans."

Another over-sampling and they STILL couldn't get their desired results.

And then, once again, the ever so subtle intrusion into the "collective psyche" of the nation, of the overwhelming preponderance of the evidence, of just how friggin retarded social justice warriors really are..."ESPN confirmed Tuesday night that it had decided to pull an announcer from calling a University of Virginia football game because his name is Robert Lee."...thats right dammit!We ARE NOT going to have a guy named ROBERT LEE appearing on our network calling a University of Virginia football game! We are pure and wholesome. As American as apple pie! Mr."Lee" is of Asian descent. And they know it. And they still yanked him. An Asian guy, named Robert Lee. Because they are idiots.…

"Actually it's the vast majority that says you are misguided"Well, it's quite a stretch to extrapolate 54% of a poll of a few thousand to a "vast" majority in a nation of over 300 million, but whatever, except you got me all wrong anyway, pard, I'm not trying to 'convince' you of anything; worship the disgusting, patently evil, and indefensible as you will, I only conveyed the General's actual expressed opinion on the matter, for what that is worth to you (not much, apparently)That is: If you like your morally repugnant historical monuments in a public place I say keep your morally repugnant historical monuments in a public place, just don't expect folk to recognize them as anything more than the atrocities they may represent, especially when even those represented themselves (modestly (sic)) had the wherewithal to recognize it was "unwise" to so glorify such outrages against humanity.

It doesn't look as though the LOSERS of this election fully appreciate how unstable their positions in DC could become.

There remains a two party system in the USA.....US and THEM.

THEM is at most about 5000 people inside the DC Beltway-and about another 3000-5000K mostly in LA/Boston/NY.

THEM has no idea of the whoop-ass waiting for them if they
continue to ignore and impede the will of the American People -temporarily and at the MOMENT expressed through Donald Trump.

THEM clearly hasn't yet figured out that Trump is the symptom
of their problems with US.

He is not their problem

What percentage thinks the whole thing is fake and it's being stoked by this Antifa group?What percentage is wondering if "attorney general" sessions, who quickly declared he'd be looking into civil rights hate crimes, has sent people to question Signer and McCaullife over their roles in the behavior of the Charlotteville police?

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.

Thanks for posting chunga.  Everybody needs to click through and watch that 5mins worth.  If nothing else, it will reaffirm how right you are to absolutely know our freedoms are trying to be stripped from us.Nothing but mob rule there with nary police intervention although there was massive police presence.Note the massive black women who pushed on the cops motorcycle while he was astride, screamed at him, flipped him off and absolutely NOTHING happened.  Watch them all chant "Our Streets!"Mob rule.  Entitlement mentality.  ZERO dialogue.  No sense.I predict that this will not end well.

I sure hope Soros bussed in a hord of these antifa zombies to rant and rave at nobody worth mentioning.  GMO dudes?  Now there is a clearly knuckle dragging Nazi outfit /sarc.  I hope he spent a wad on all those busses and made it an expensive love-in for chimps.  Mostly all they did was jump up and down, flash their IQ digitally and spit on cops.  Must be great duty for the fuzz!  I wonder how much this chimpout is costing the bonobostonians/Massachewers?

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?

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.

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.

For 50 plus years John Q Public has keep quiet while the useless US Gvt paid welfare trash to breed more of them. What do we have of LBJ's great slacking society?

They can shove the NBA and NFL up there azz. Can you buy tickets to those games with food stamps? Asking for a friend. LBJ...'we'll have the Negroes voting for us for the next 200 years" appears Ears had inside info....

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. 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.

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 Awan Indictment

The Cover Up Op

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’.

OH, shucks, did I forget my sarcasm tag?

Anyone refusing to see where this all goes is either deaf, really, really, really dumb and blind OR 'In On' the corruption and crimes.

Yes, the FBI are crooks. ...... All of them. ....... DoJ too.
