I am very concerned about the recent removals of historic war memorials and historical names on buildings. Why are we looking back? Why are they wanting to remove our history? Isn't this what the Taliban and ISIS have done?
It seems to me that this is a concerted effort to change education in America to conform to a certain group's ideas. This is very dangerous, I think. It may not effect us now, but it will in 10 years, when books are changed and new monuments go up of so-called leaders like Obama, Malcolm X, etc.
This is not a race war, it is securing our country's history as is. So remember who is encouraging the removal at election time. All patriotic citizens should be fearful of what is behind this new movement. You cannot change history but you can change the future. That is the solution; not tearing down our history and saying how bad they all where.
The U.S has learned by its mistakes. If they hadn't, we would still have slaves. A lot of these distinguished gentlemen served our country and were honored with naming buildings after them at our colleges. So let's focus on what they did, not what the political climate was back in the day. So all of us need to pay attention to what the underlying reasons are and stop it before it is too late. Nobody is free of sin and regrets. Let's don't keep punishing.
