    Was Andrew Jackson America’s Craziest President?

  2. Hey I don’t care what you take down just don’t take down any statues of me I’m not done yet

  3. *He can put all the racist monuments in Trump Tower, if POTUS love them so much.*

  4. The bigots got to live didn’t they. No reason to honor them.

    I believe we all have a connection to God, and I believe God prompted me this morning to just let people think what they want to. It’s just hard with all this. Nobody’s perfect. ❤️

      Actually, if you read and practice the word of God your heart grows.
      But you can not tell an atheist that.
      So, this will continue till all atheist start to believe.

  6. You can’t claim to be anti-racist and be against the removal of statues of slave owners

    • Reparations? And who gets them? Recent immigrants, half black?

      Yes we can, and we can accuse you of wanting to erase your own nefarious history as an example how not to educate future generations.

    • Cliff Wan did Martin Luther king jr own slaves? If you don’t know the answer to that then you obviously weren’t reading those textbooks

    • Cliff Wan that’s up for debate. The whole point of reparations is that you put together a council to figure out who gets them. Just like how they figured out who gets a $1200 check and how much gets taken off if you make over $75k/yr

    • Shawn Corbin literally zero history gets destroyed by removing statues. You think Germans lost their memory of hitler because there’s no statues of him?

  7. I’m less concerned with the desecration of symbols than I am the uncanny timing of this revolution(tm). It’s a slippery slope to all kinds of mayhem. People’s heads are full of dumb ideas thanks to Hollywood. Very dark clouds over this horizon.

  8. wish they would tear down the statues of the carr brothers

  9. gonna replace the statues with statues of drag queens

      The answer to this problem is to gather up all the Confederate statues, the complete history behind each one, along with all the Confederate history we can, put it all in a museum right next to the Holocaust museum.

  10. Yes sir my mother’s Dallas childhood home, with her Aunt Bonnie & her Uncle Clyde. No one in her family spoke directly of these days, of the Dallas Radio bank job game show. They was Dallas folks that’s just the way it is I guess. The Bonnie he he he of pure female insanity yes Mothers family and evil Aunty. An open family secrete as far as was concerned the grand society of the shadowy bushwacker F.B.I.

  11. Good thoughts from Mr Moore.
    You can’t hide or erase your history. You have to learn from it and become better. Otherwise future generations will repeat the mistakes.

    • Yes Indeed

    what next, is chess racist because white moves first?

  13. If you keep tearing down statues people are going to get fed up and start tearing down ALL monuments and statues and road signs
    Leave history alone

    There is a very old movie titled 1776. I think it should be rereleased now. It explains the attitudes of the Founding Fathers at that time.

    We shouldn’t honor traitors.

  17. History is written by the victors

  18. Leviticus 26:1-2

  19. I served at Fort Bragg and I can tell you I’ve seen confederate flags and Nazi flags in the barracks/soldier’s living quarters.
