    Statues and monuments don't tell history themselves. History is going nowhere when these pieces of rubble disappear. Tear them down.

    Get rid of them. They are nothing to be proud of. The war was lost and they just spew hate.

    Move them to cemeteries so the ideology of the past can be put to rest.

    The mayor thinks by taking down monuments are going to solve the problem, he is just daft.

    When they finish taking them down, they will declare the American Flag Racist and go after it.
