    "It's easier to say that it's not our [US Democrats'] fault, but Russians' fault, say that they interfered with the elections... It reminds me of anti-Semitism, when everything is Jews' fault. Someone is a mutt, can't do a thing, but the Jews are to be blamed. But we know where such an attitude leads to, it never ends well"

    I think statues celebrating confederate figures should be moved out of public urban spaces and into museums. It is offensive to both blacks and American patriots to be publicly celebrating people who fought a war against America to maintain the practice of slavery. Having statues of such people in public urban spaces is inappropriate, and historical museums are the correct place for such statues where people can go to learn about the history.

    The Stone Mountain is a case where nothing needs to be done IMO - it is already in an out-of-the-way location (people are not being forced to walk past it daily like they are with a monument in a public square) and is essentially a 'museum' already.

    Thank goodness for the 22nd ammendment. Oh don't say that around folks like George Takei.

I wouldn't say different in the sense that it undoes all the good they ever did but it is a mixed legacy to be sure.
    Rahab was a prostitute, yet the book of Hebrews honors her as one of the great examples of faith alongside Noah, Abraham, and Moses!

    The side he was fighting on was the one fighting to keep slavery legal so I think that dwarfs whatever he did in his personal life.

    Only if people worship them, which I really don't think is the case.
