Folks as you know I have always said that the removal of Confederate heritage by anyone is NOT based on fact , but rather based on ignorance, prejudiced or bigotry. Well Al Mackey proves my point here —
More Retreat of Confederate Heritage https://studycivilwar.wordpress.com/2016/01/24/more-retreat-of-confederate-heritage-2/
NOT ONE GOOD HISTORICAL REASON IS GIVEN FOR REMOVING THE STATUES
Working from memory but isn’t Rawling the mayor who wanted the protesting idiots in Baltimore to be left alone to destroy the city due the Freddie Gray incident. Isn’t she the one who made some racist remarks regarding that case? Correct me if I am wrong. And speaking iof those protests why was these statues attacked by the protesters during that time. Only reason I can think of they just aren’t that important.
Oh yeah and Mackey it isn’t retreat when you have a bunch of ignorant bigots making decisions to remove another persons heritage. It is just heritage terrorism.
