    Based on the subject line, I had assumed that this thread was going to be about Wiggy's show

    That's the first thing I thought too.

    Robin, the Confederates were out of their minds back then !

    The Confederates needed at LEAST 6 days of therapy a week.

    I hear your subtext, Dawg. But it stands to reason that the monuments in question are celebratory as regards the acts of individual men and a particular battle. They weren't exactly erected to second-guess those years or suggest that the whole enterprise was misguided, much less treasonous.

    I guess it's taken a 150+ years, but today it is hardly clear that those monuments stand for anything but a not-so-muted middle finger to the world regarding a war levied to protect a municipal property regime erected on the basis of racial inferiority and the the right of one group of people to own another group of people as chattel. Sorry, but when proponents say "States rights," I say, "Yes, the States' rights to control the municipal institution of human chattel slavery."

    1 - its not erasing history, thats silly


    2 - the Germans have figured out that publicly displaying Nazi stuff would be in bad taste. They have come to grips that they were the bad guys in that war. They are ashamed of it. The American South still seems to not understand that they were the bad guys. Sorry, it's just true.
