Heritage not hate: Leave Confederate Civil War statues alone

Jay FayzaRebel Columnist

There is a growing debate in America regarding the status of Confederate Civil War Statues

Some people believe they should be taken down because they represent nothing more than racism and slavery.

This debate has attracted the attention of Richard Spencer who led a torchlight protest in defense of the statues.

WATCH my video to see what these statues actually represent to people from the South, and why I lean towards keeping them up and protecting Southern history and culture

Only Democrats, Liberals, and Muslims think they can change history. If you cannot live with what you see, then go back to the Land of your Forefathers. Do not sink to the brainless levels of Islamic Terrorist, who delight in destroying historical works of art because they feel offended by them.

The thing that is disturbing is the parallels with ISIS.
ISIS routinely destroys historical evidence of the past. Today it’s confederate statues, tomorrow Mt. Rushmore? Afterall, two of the presidents on Mt. Rushmore owned slaves. Will we see them blown up like the Buddhas of Afghanistan, or the relics of Palmyra?

My home town of Halifax was founded by Edward Cornwallis..the British general depicted in the Mel Gibson movie Patriot…..yes Cornwallis was a prick but I am opposed to sponging away history.

I was in Montreal when the Parti Quebecois first came to power and the statue of Horatio Nelson was removed from Nelson Square in front of the Nelson Hotel. All Montreal streets with English names (including Craig Street) have been re-named in the ensueing cultural purge.

The day will come when political correctness and SJWs will be remembered for the absurdity they are and they will not be commemorated either.
