    Destroying Symbols: Where Does It End?

    By kyle | August 17, 2017

    Inviting the Left to start tearing down statues is a mistake. It’s like saying, “Start a forest fire, we’ll figure out how to stop it later.” More in a column.

      The evil mastermind, George Soros has a meeting with old family friend, Sy Klonbee, to put this all to an end.

      The vast majority of people in the U.S. do not descend from slaveowners. Probably half the country descends from or are immigrants who came after the Civil War. None of these people have any sin to expiate. Not to mention that African blacks were complicit in slavery themselves. It is time to stop this endless BS about how we are all responsible for this institution which was ended 150 years ago, at the cost of the lives of tens of thousands of Americans. As the left used to love to say: Move On.
