Re: New Orleans Begins Removing Confederate Monuments, Under Police Guard

I'm all about history, but I think the fact that the KKK was using them as rallying points was the deal breaker for me.

Stolen from Twitter:
You can't be anti-participation trophies and pro-Confederate statues. They are the world's biggest participation trophies.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Good Riddance to Confederate Monuments at NYTimes.com

Quote:
I say good riddance. Confederate monuments should be housed in a museum. We cannot run from history, nor should we try. But as Americans we should not celebrate intolerance, division and hate. And we should move on.

Re: New Orleans Begins Removing Confederate Monuments, Under Police Guard

Can someone tell me what is being done with these statues? I read somewhere that they were being sold at auction. That seems dumber and more likely to cause problems than leaving them up.

They're all going into the secret stash room of the old Nazi from Apt Pupil.

I thought they were going to be relocated, not sold.
