Why do Conservatives get so angry when Liberals destroy Confederate statues?

These statues were built by traitors and encourage treason so they should be destroyed.

    They see it as that the liberals are hideing our history and covering it up. We need to learn from our past because Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.

    WHY cant you people grow up... ITS PART OF HISTORY and as much as you would like to you cannot hide it.. IT will be there no matter how much you cry about it.. HOW about educating yourselves to realise HISTORY is to learn from so as not to be repeated.. instead of trying to hid it happened and have it repeat itself.

    The NAZI SWASTIKA is offense to many but it is still a historical fact. 

    How about hiding ALL SYMBOLS of what is disliked in history, NO more German, Japanese, Russian flags in any movies, NO MORE Soldiers in uniforms in moves showing the enemy uniforms, DO NOT EVER SHOW a MILITARY VEHICLE used by any one who fought against the USA... THAT would really remove a lot of TOYOTAS wouldn't it.. HOW about we declare JAPAN a enemy or terrorist because I SEE more TOYOTAS with Guns mounted to them to kill americans do I see of any others.

    • But there’s a reason that statues of Lenin were torn down after the USSR fell. Statues honor the people depicted, and we do not wish to honor the Confederates. Though it was an important part of history, it was not honorable what they did.

    your hatred of education, history and anything that does not affirm your one approved narrative are actually quite consistent with your political leanings....

    Following your logic, Texas, which has existed under six different national flags, would be the least patriotic and most treasonous place in the United States. But it isn’t. So, try another premise for your Muslim-style monument toppling. Or, wise up.

    It doesn't matter how bad of a person the statues represent. They're pieces of history and therefore should not be destroyed.

      No, no  reason to assume the statues are "pieces of history" , particularly those of generic soldiers , constructed in the 1950s. Having said that, the owners of said statues, usually the municipality in which they are located, have the right to keep or remove them for any reason/no reason at all

    Because Confederates are recognized by the U.S. government as U.S. soldiers and when you take down those statues you are taking down statues of U.S. soldiers.

    The statues were erected to honor brave men who lived, and in many cases died, according to their beliefs. They were not the property of the animals who tore them down. The destruction was a criminal act. Criminals need to be punished.
