#2 If you want to destroy a People, first you have to eradicate their history.

#3 So a bunch of Black Privileged Socialist-Democrats have decided to removed a War monument ejected to those that served and died defending Georgia's state rights. An replace it with that of a Black Man known for his civil rights efforts.

For me the problem is not that John Lewis was the replacement. Because John Lewis despite his often over the top racial pandering for votes, camera time and speaking fees. Help accomplish a lot before he adopted White hate and started down the slipper sloped of Race Pimping for fame.

I feel Georgia lost a great opportunity to eject his statue next to the Civil War Memorial to demonstrate how far Georgia has come in 150 years?

"Whenever history is erased or rewritten, it only lessens and even negates the accomplishments of those that shalt to make a better future from the issues of the past." J.K. 1973 )

But if the Socialist-Democrat did so. It would also cut the legs out from under their Racial Division agenda for elections and control of the Black Community. Because history clearly demonstrates we HAVE made great advancements, changes and HAVE peacefully and privately accomplished racial integration in the USA just the last 50+ years. An that many in the Black Community have stepped up and become part of the greater productive inter-racial economy and community.

A John Lewis Quote I remember...

“We are involved now in a serious revolution. This nation is still a place of cheap political leaders who build their careers on immoral compromises and ally themselves with open forms of political, economic and social exploitation. What political leader here can stand up and say, "My party is the party of principles?” John Lewis

Sure sounds like he hit the nail on the Head for the DC/Deep State.

#4 BTW:The part of "Local residents watched and cheered as it came down."

A quick Google (custom date range June to July 1, 2020) "Decatur, GA — DeKalb County on June 18 dismantled and removed a Confederate monument in the Decatur Square. Workers started with the top of the monument, removing it by midnight and then carved up the base into sections so it could be hauled away.Jun 19, 2020" .

Its removal was ordered by DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Clarence Seeliger (A White Superior Court Judge)....


There were NO CHEERING CROWDS and I doubt the work-crew was cheering having do this in the middle of the night like sneak thieves.

More Media Race Baiting help to stir the Pot of Hate that the Socialist-Democrats try to keep on a constant simmer.

#5 And someday John Lewis’ statue will also be removed... I wonder what Communist ‘hero’ will take his place

#6 In Jonesboro Tennessee about 15 years ago a person could buy a brick with his or her veteran's name on it and have it placed on a sidewalk with others. A lot of locals got bricks with their Confederate ancestors but when the crews started to place them the carpetbaggers stopped them. A lawsuit insued and since the Confederate veterans had been declared U. S. veterans the judge ordered them to proceed. In retaliation the carpetbagging city council stopped the project.

#7  Young urban professional driven (high property tax) gentrification currently well underway in Dekalb County. Government and services still trend heavily Wacondan, and likely to remain that way. Statues and images dedicated to Lewis and other leftests are Woke tributes and offerings. This area was formerly well policed, desirable suburban Atlanta. Give the societal enema of gentrification another 20-30 years, the region may recover and once again be inhabitable.

Removal of the 'Lost Cause' obelisk was the 25 meter target. The long-range goal is destruction of President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson (on their favorite horses, Blackjack, Traveller, and Little Sorrel, respectively), at Stone Mountain Park.

This is Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock country.

#9  What political leader here can stand up and say, "My party is the party of principles?” All of them can say that. Then they will say, "If you don't like THOSE principles, well, we have others." HT to Groucho Marx.

#10 Someone should gather the pieces and, Japanese style, put it back together with something that looks like gold to accentuate our resistance to their vicious destruction of the past.

#11 They won. Losing has consequences. (I should put that in quotes, as IIRC they said as much.)
