    This is what happens when you don't stop the insanity when it starts.

    "American history is not all glorious... George Washington was a slave owner. We need to call slave owners out for what they are. Whether we think they were protecting American freedom or not, he wasn't protecting my freedoms," the network contributor said.

    "To me, I don't care if it's a George Washington statue or Thomas Jefferson, they all need to come down," Rye concluded.

    “The first step in liquidating a people is to erase its memory. Destroy its books, its culture, its history. Then have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long that nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was... The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting.”

    And they are winning the battle. No one is even suggesting they be stopped.

    This is exactly correct. It is all per the playbook: It is the systematic removal of what symbolizes "American" ideology. With it goes the actual ideology in short order.
    It starts with "it's just a statue... let em' have it."
    Many of the young and absolutely ignorant will tear them down just because they want to destroy things.
    Some will actually fall for the idea that they are "doing something" for a cause by destroying them.
    But others.... they know exactly what they are doing.
    Conservatives are sitting this out (Yes...I'm as guilty as all of you)... we spend all our time beating our chests about what is happening, while our representatives spend their time constantly on the defensive trying to put out fires in the most politically correct way.
    The future of America is resting at our feet right now. Do we pick it up and save it, or just stare and step over it?
    The clock is ticking... tick-tock.

    It isn't going to be a suggestion.

    I think we all knew this was coming, if we don't have people that will say NO, the madness will continue. You can't change history by destroying monuments.

    Because they are the media. They are the big corporations. That's how they turned BLM into a legitimate cause, instead of a fringe group of black supremacist.

    What we are witnessing are the beginning steps of a white genocide.

    That's why the cultural Marxists are working hard to denigrate and erase the memory of traditional American heroes and leaders like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and replace them with Marxist heroes and leaders like Obama, FDR, LBJ, etc.

    You just have to look back 100 years ago to what happened in Russia. Saint Petersburg became Leningrad and Volgograd became Stalingrad. Communists tried to erase any traces of the past. This is precisely what is happening here.

    The takeover of the U.S. by a radical left is well underway. It's not a crazy conspiracy theory anymore. You can call them socialist, communists, Marxists or just anarchists. This band of thugs wants to remove Donald Trump the same way Lenin took care of the Romanovs. They want to destroy the country, tear up the Constitution and create another socialist hell hole where everyone will be "equal", except those at the very top of the new regime.
