    That's appreciated. So we both agree that the fringe left is not representative of a meaningful slice of this country and their contributions are generally unwanted and unhelpful. Hopefully most on this board feel similarly.

    Really? You don't think having white people apologizing for white privilege isn't a real thing?

    An oversight on my part very quickly corrected.

    "The left" would do well to denounce them, and try to bring order. I think those in the leadership of "the left" are afraid to incur the wrath of their own fringe.

    Hopefully most on this board feel similarly.
    I was actually quite surprised how hard JimL, for example, DEFENDS the extremist left nuttery, and I really don't see any of "the left" correcting him, or pointing out how nutty the fringe has become.

    I've actually contemplated starting a thread asking "the left" here where they draw the line.

    Isn't this the act of religious revolutionaries like ISIS? Do we have our own ISIS operating among our state governments?

    ISIS or the communist revolutions of the past, take your pick.

    The great majority of those confederate statues were put up in response to the civil rights movement long after the Civil War. The Old South and it's treason over slavery will not rise again and needs be obliterated. Removing the statues isn't obliterating the history of this country, ugly as it was, it's just the states and organizations recognizing it for what it was and ending the homage paid to it.

    No Jim, what is happening is lawless. These protesters have no right to tear these statues down. If you don't want them there is a political way of doing it. We have them on camera and they should be arrested for destruction of government property.
