    I’m not impressed by token virtue signaling from the woke crowd. If you think supporting things like removing a Columbus statue gives you the moral high ground, think again. Until we all judge people solely on their actions and content of character, all the attempts to erase history or re brand products are meaningless gestures.

    I Deeply resent this self righteous crowd from taking it upon themselves to tear down and deface ANY public monuments in our country, unless it is decided to do so by a democratic process. These people aren’t protesting anything that is unfair and unjust. They are a nothing but a bunch of rowdy leftist thugs that are trying to arrogantly impose their will and their intolerant views on society whether you like it or not. They must be defeated soundly at every level.

    I took a Shakespeare class in college and one day in class he told us “don’t put 20th century morals on 16th century life.”

    Oh no! If the left realizes he discriminated against woman they’ll tear down the Globe.

    That professor would be lucky to be sweeping the floors today with that kind of thinking. Seriously though it is good advice.

    I get a kick out of it. Black Lives Matter... Sure they do. All lives matter..... OH MY, HOW DARE I display common sense, reasoning and logic. I need to cede to my emotions, abandon common sense, reasoning and logic, and virtue signal that I CARE MORE THAN YOU DO!!!!!

    Mobs are mostly brainless, but they have just enough brains to know when somebody is afraid of them.

    I think Columbus being taken down is whatever. Couldn’t care less either way.

    But it’s possible to do two things at once; getting rid of historical details that minimize people and judging people on their character. They are not mutually exclusive.

    I believe your logic and rational thinking ARE mutually exclusive my friend.

    We have lots of problems in this country that need addressing. Racism isn't one of them.

    This is like having a few incidents of drowning and then claiming we need a national moratorium against entering water.

    Leave it to the left to distract attention from the important things ... again. Anything to make their agenda relevant.

    I am not confident, which is why I am voting with my money. It's the only thing I can do.

    I think Americans have been sufficiently dumbed down so as to believe the crap they hear on CNN. I see it all the time and I even live in a conservative area. No way to reason with someone who is already brainwashed.

    The scary thing is that these people get their politics in the cities and then leave for a better life where they haven't already made a mess of things. But they bring their politics with them.

    I saw a Seattle business owner mention that people there are moving to Idaho. It made me think back to a report I heard last year wherein people in Idaho were sick of leftists moving there from the west coast and bringing their liberal politics.

    Look at what has happened to Colorado. Beautiful state now ruined by the cities.

    I’d love for you to get into specifics. You effectively said nothing. Like you bought your response at the dollar store.

    Is there an echo in here? Specifically my friend, the inclination to destroy property is most definitely a character flaw. Even the notion that a person is offended by a monument brings into play many character issues.
