Forty-four percent of African Americans believe the Confederate statues should stay in place, while 11 percent said they’re unsure. The remaining 40 percent of African Americans polled said the statues should be removed.
Those surveyed were asked whether statues “honoring leaders of the Confederacy” should “remain as a historical symbol” or “be removed because they are offensive to some people,” or whether the respondent is unsure. NPR and PBS News Hour conducted the Marist poll Monday and Tuesday, following a weekend of violent protests sparked by the subject in Charlottesville, Va.
Latin Americans who participated overwhelmingly believe that Confederate monuments should stay in place — 65 percent said they should remain. Twenty-four percent said they should come down, while 11 percent said they weren’t sure.
White Americans also overwhelmingly supported keeping up Confederate monuments– 65 percent said they should stay, while 25 percent said they should be taken down. Eight percent said they weren’t sure if they should stay up or not. Most Republicans, Independents and those who identified as “soft” Democrats said the statues should stay. Fifty-seven percent of those identified as “strong” Democrats said the statues should be removed.
Is this accurate:
Much of the alt-right wants separation (as Malcom X advocated). They perceive other groups as behaving parasitically or with hostility.
How about the left? What do they want?
They are Marxists, or under the sway of Marxists. They see the history of the world in terms of class struggle. Unlike 100 years ago, today’s classes are ethnic/gender classes (as opposed to economic). They perceive the world as a struggle between oppressors and oppressed.
So what do they want?
To destroy the classes of people who they deem to be oppressors?
Is that it?
Edit. I suppose you can also say that left wants what they always ask for: “MORE!” But what is the long-term ideal toward which they think they’re working.
I demand that whenever I’m hungry, a fried, marinated Partridge fly through my window and into my mouth. The world owes me.
DON”T INTERRUPT by talking about what’s good for YOU!!! We are talking about what’s good for me!!!
This is certainly the worst of it, the extreme. But it demonstrated the feeling toward Europe of historic wrongs and grievances which informs a lot of Jewish thinking.
I agree with Jewish conservative writer Paul Gottfried. They’re making a mistake. European culture has made Jews rich and given them protection.
