Probably because we didn't have a sudden Nazi resurgence during the Obama era.

There's a difference between pro-American icons like Mount Rushmore and the Statue of Liberty, and symbols of the Confederacy.

Then explain why there have been calls to dismantle the Jefferson Memorial as well as other Jefferson statues. Do you really think it's going to stop at Confederate statues? You are deluding yourself. These people are against racists. Even the guy who freed the slaves was a racist, so I have no reason to think he wouldn't be on the list at some point as well. And what do you know, they did deface/partly destroy a Lincoln statue in Chicago.

Are you sure about that? Not long ago, people were burning the Stars and Stripes for the same reason.

The real delusion is that they think they love America.

I don't see antifa as a specific race, nor do I care about ace. What gets me is all of the hypocrisy here. These people could have cared less when Obama was in office, but now that Trump is putting a halt to the progressive's playground, they are literally revolting. On a daily basis, they are collectively acting like a two year old having a conniption on the floor of a grocery store if they don't get their way. But, I definitely don't see this as a "black" problem or problem with any other individual race.

And you're all so weak minded you're getting butt hurt because someone tore down a statue...
reply

Thank you for your comments. I'm not butt hurt in the least. I stand against nazis, white supremacists, slavery and so on down the line. But I am very opposed to trying to erase history. Even bad history. Those that ignore history are doomed to repeat it. What's happening now is right out of the book, "1984." If a municipality wants to take down a statue or rename a park, fine. But do it lawfully and hopefully put it in a museum so that this history, negative as it is, is never forgotten.

So you're opposed to white supremacy and slavery, yet you also oppose the legal removal of symbols of slavery and white supremacy, erected by white supremacists?

The Confederate statues are being removed legally, by votes of state and local legislature, depending on the ownership of the land on which each particular statue sits. Then the Nazis, white supremacists, and pro-slavery types show up to protest the will of the people as carried out by representative bodies... who then get counter protested by the majority of Americans.

Legally remove? Sorry (not sorry) to blow your narrative. The nazis, supremacists, etc. have been around all our lives. Though Trump is an easy target, they are not showing up now because of Him. They are coming out now because of Antifa and BLM's violence and suppression of free thought and speech.

I'm talking about Charlottesville, way to inject whataboutism. You're still not answering my questions. Do you or do you not support the legal removal of symbols of racial hatred? Do you or do you not oppose the will of the majority of Americans, as carried out by various legislative bodies?

Nowhere in your previous response did I see you specify Charlottesville. Did I miss something?

"legal removal" would be the part you ignored.

You're still not answering my questions. Do you or do you not support the legal removal of symbols of racial hatred? Do you or do you not oppose the will of the majority of Americans, as carried out by various legislative bodies?

This is an example of a fake news meme. It assumes that an assumption is correct when it is actually false.
