With political correctness elevated to the status of our national religion by forces from the left, it's no surprise than anything connected with the Confederacy must be eliminated by our enlightened, diversity-conscious public leaders.
Damn the people whose ancestors fought on the side of the South during the War Between the States. They were on the wrong side of history and don't deserve war memorials. After all, they were nothing but a bunch of white racists fighting to keep blacks enslaved. Right?
Well, that would be one politically-correct version of history. No doubt there were racists — on both sides of that awful war. But as is so often the case, history is written by the victors, and in this case that version is just wrong.
There is no space here to argue the Southern cause which included economic issues and matters of states rights, the latter concept being anathema to the left. The point is that everything that the South stood for must be abolished according to the liberals.

So if we get rid of all references to the Civil War, the Antebellum South, and slavery, does that mean they’ll finally shut up about institutional racism and reparations and$#%&!@*and BLM, the NAACP, Black Panthers and the Congressional Black Caucus will all dissolve and disband?
This is disgraceful….
Changed my vacation plans. I’ll spend my 8,000- 10,000 elsewhere. Just think, if just One thousand tourists decide to boycott New Orleans and Louisiana, just how much money they’ll lose. Billions!!! Let them go after their Mayor when no money is coming in. Money talks, now it walks. Bye bye Louisiana.
After 153 years since the Civil War, we think we should also be removing mosques on American soil after 9/11. Makes as much sense.
I shall never go to that$#%&!@*hole again. This is the equivalent of Isis destroying history in the Middle East
I bet you a dollar against a dime that most of the people doing this are tested from Confederate soldiers that are buried at Arlington.a part of land U S Grant had at one time.
Offsprings of Confederate soldiers.
