The Truth about the removal of Confederate statues

Recently, the Left has been obsessed with tearing down statues that commemorate important figures of the fallen Confederate States of America. They believe it reminds them of a time of slavery and racism in America, when that is not truly the case. By doing this, the Left has stooped down to ISIS’ level as they remove statues they don’t like in the Middle East as well. Now here is some truths about the Civil War, first of all this wasn’t even the real Confederate flag

Popularized Confederate Flag

Here is a gallery of all the real Confederate flags

Stars and Bars
Stainless Banner
Blood-Stained Banner

Notice, how none of these resemble popularized not-actually historically correct version of the Confederate flag. Another myth about the Confederacy is that they wanted to keep their slaves, that is not the case in fact; Robert E. Lee, General of the Confederate Army wanted slavery to end and maybe if the Confederates won the Civil War, slavery would’ve ended anyway and another myth about the Civil War, is that is what fought over slavery, that is also not true. The Civil War was actually fought as a battle between federal rights (Union) and states’ rights (Confederacy). In that Civil War, we knew that the federal rights side won and the states’ rights supporters lost. So the big question is, if the Confederacy lost the Civil War why do people still fly the Confederate flag and why are Confederate statues erected across America? Simply, it’s because the history of the Confederate States of America is still part of the History of the United States, hence the country’s name being the Confederate States of America, which the country still being in America. Heck, a lot of the Confederate state flags were reminiscent of the American flag signifying that they still respected the American culture of the Union back in the day.

Regardless, of what the Confederacy actually stood for we should still fight and protect to keep that history intact, as George Santayana once said.

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. – George Santayana

Sidenote: That quote was originally said during the American Civil War in 1863.

  1. This is perfection – Thank You
    So, the question remains…
    What is the best way to educate our young?
    Shall we all encourage all parents to homeschool their children?
    Is it important to help the citizens of America realize that it is not that difficult to teach the truth and that the human brain loves to learn new things?

    Government schools are hurting our populations.
