The same people who tell us that it is sacrilege not to care about the Holocaust, which had nothing to do with our people, have no problem tearing down monuments to our dead ancestors.
“A Confederate monument in the small town of Pittsboro, N.C., was removed early Wednesday from the spot outside a courthouse where it had stood for 112 years, county officials said, bringing to an end months of debate and occasionally violent protests over its presence.
Crews worked for several hours on Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning to “safely and respectfully dismantle” the monument, including its statue and pedestal, Chatham County said in a news release on Wednesday. About 75 people, including supporters and opponents of the monument’s removal, watched it come down, according to The News & Observer.
The statue and the pedestal were transported to a location where they will be stored until the Winnie Davis Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, which owns the monument and works to honor Confederate history, “finds a more appropriate location to place them,” the news release said. …”
Are you angry about this?

Rich Lowry says in his book that Confederate monuments ought to be torn down. The cause of the Confederacy “is an affront to African-Americans.” As a conservative, he also recommends miscegenation as the best method of assimilating blacks so you will have to give up your daughters too.
What are we left with? You will have Old Glory, the Dallas Cowboys and your Samsung flat screen television. The GDP will also be higher!
