Lee or other Confederate leaders who not only committed treason and sedition against the United States, they also fought to continue the practice of slavery throughout the south and reap the rewards of the economic benefits from slave labour as a result.

    Statues aren't the main concern, but they are one small part in a much larger picture regarding the ongoing and increasing levels of racism enabled from the very top of government all the way down.
    The more of the picture you fill in, the closer you are to finishing it.
    George Washington commited treason when we broke off from Britain and he led the "rebel army". He owned slaves. You going to go chisel his face off Mount Rushmore?


    There is a difference between moving a statue or monument and destroying one as well. Something that seems to have been lost on the "mob."

    Lee and the confederate army lost, so that alone sets him apart from Washington. Yes Washington had slaves, as did Jefferson but they didn't start a war on the basis of keeping those slaves at all costs and the British Empire didn't abolish slavery until 1833 either so they still had slavery at the time of the declaration of Independence, and many American laws and the Constitution is based on English common law.

    Bannon back to the bosom of Breitbart and its biggest sponsor Mercer.

    Prince blocked from attending a meeting on Afghanistan (30min)where he was supposedly to pitch a 10 billion dollar bid to privatise the war there.

    Is there a real battle going on between the public services sector/deep state (eg. military/FBI etc) and the private sector to prevent the US from openly becoming USA Inc?

    They should just privatise the White House and appoint Sheryl Sandberg as CEO.

    I wonder how many people are wondering if this is a sign from God about many things from Trump being president, Bannon being sacked, Hillary still being free, along with many other issues depending on if they are on where they are on the political spectrum.

    Nutters in America will interpret it as meaning that Trump is God's chosen one, and all who oppose him are being warned to bow down, or else.
