Then why did you change it 2 separate times?My argument on Trump's statement is one argument with two prongs, it is both racist and bigoted and yet haven't refuted either.
As for Lee, historical figures make mistakes and anyone who thinks Lee didn't create much evil and misfortune by his actions is dead wrong. And Grant did say Lee's actions were terrible, and he criticized how Lee conducted the war and how he refused to treat captured black soldiers the same as white soldiers.
Ike is dead wrong when he said the question of secession wasn't settled until 1865. It was settled law the day the constitution was ratified.
Secession was never legal and the traitors themselves knew this for they didn't take their case to the SCOTUS to argue constitutionality, of secession, instead they fired on Fort Sumter.
So you go in worshipping heroes and allow them to do the thinking for you, but I will think for myself.
And the argument that Lee helped in healing the nation afterwards is BS too because he argued against giving blacks the right to vote after the war.
He gave credence to those who wanted to keep blacks as second class citizens.
And you can't excuse Lee by saying he was the product of his times because Longstreet, unlike Lee urged southerners to accept reconstruction and full citizenship for freed slaves.
First it was Norway was white
Then it was Norway is extremely white
Then it became Trump "probably" thought Norway was whiter. Again not my fault you didn't check before you posted.
Grant was so critical about Lee that he invited him to the Whitehouse in 1869. Making Lee the only person ever to have that honor and also have his citizenship revoked. Again...when multiple people that are more intelligent than you disagree with your inaccurate perception of Lee. That should be a red flag for you to re visit the understanding you have on a given subject. Or you can remain ignorant which you obviously like to do given the number of times I've had to educate you on this. Yes historical figures make mistakes.....this would be relevant if it were one person. The reality respect for Lee transcends Republican/Democrat Left/Right Black/White etc.....and yes even North/South. But in Jeffclear land.....they are a just wrong lol.
