Robert E. Lee statue\n\nRepublicans complain about Democrat KKK members from decades past.\nEvery now and then a conservative commentator says they want to keep one of these statues (presumably to preserve the Republic identity because that's just the way it was).\nWTF???\nCharlottesville: people marching around with torches. Yeah that's a real good look.\nA few people saying "that's not what the flag really means."\nDuh. Oh yeah. They WANT it that way.\nGranted there's prejudice everywhere, but the difference is the rest of the world doesn't wear it on their sleeves.\nSo sad.\nEdit: plaque could say "America the beautiful, land of the Republic." There ya go.
