Trump ‘Sad’ Over Removal of ‘Our Beautiful Statues’ http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwn97y9Dk
Trump , like his followers , don’t seem to understand that statues of confederate soldiers , and the confederate flag – represent treason , and slavery , and therefore are offensive to most people for those reasons. Many of them falsely believe that the civil war really wasn’t about the south defending slavery.
Yes , they are a part of American history. But they should not be in public squares and buildings. By placing them so , honors their cause , which was to defend slavery and secede from America. America should not honor traitors by erecting monuments to them. Those who do so , those who are arguing for keeping these symbols in public places , are , in my opinion , showing that they themselves are un-American. These symbols belong in museums.
