    Abrams calls for removal of Confederate faces off Stone Mountain

    Abrams calls for removal of Confederate faces off Stone Mountain

    Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams called for the removal of the giant carving that depicts three Confederate war leaders on the face of state-owned Stone Mountain, saying it “remains a blight on our state and should be removed.”

    “We must never celebrate those who defended slavery and tried to destroy the union,” Abrams said in a series of tweets posted early Tuesday, a response to the deadly violence sparked by white supremacist groups in Charlottesville, Va.

    Removing the faces of Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson would take a monster of a sandblaster and require a change in state law. The Georgia code has a clear mandate for the memorial, saying it should be “preserved and protected for all time as a tribute to the bravery and heroism of the citizens of this state who suffered and died in their cause.”

    Lawmakers and civil rights groups have called for the removal of Confederate symbols at the memorial for years. After the 2015 shooting deaths of nine black worshipers by a white supremacist in Charleston, several legislators pushed for a boycott until Rebel flags at the site come down....

    These people won't stop until the Jefferson Memorial is gone too... This will not end well...

    When trying to establish a totalitarian system rewriting history is part of the preparation. With all it's big government push I believe that strong central authority held by Democrats is what is being pushed.

    Of course, that is why we saw all those Communist flags at Charlottesville...

    These are doubtless the same people who fainted at the sight of the Taliban blowing up buddha carvings.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    Good.

    We should only honor truly great American leaders who didn't discriminate on the basis of race, like FDR.

    The snowflakes think if they can close their eyes to history then it never happened. They can't deal with reality.

    They condemn the Southern states as "traitors" against the USA and in the next breath they spit on our current President (Not Our President) and say they want to secede from the Union.



    hey if California secedes can we remove any mention of Democrats and California from the History books?

    I'm not sure what they think erasing history will accomplish.

    Next thing you know, they're going to want to tear up the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution because they were written by white slave owners.
