Do people tearing down Civil War monuments know there are three statues to Lenin and one to Stalin in the United States?

There is one in Atlantic City, New Jersey, New York City, and Seattle, Washington. There is also a bust of former Soviet dictator Josef Stalin in Bedford, Virginia,

At a time when there are politicians and state governments ready and willing to take down statues and monuments honoring Confederate personnel just to appease these nut jobs that have zero knowledge of history (civil war did not start over slavery, slavery was morphed into the war later), no one seems interested in taking down statues of two of the most brutal and bloody dictators that have ever haunted the planet.

Maybe they ought to think about it!

Here is a statue of Joseph Stalin who murdered millions.

  1. How about all those statues of Margaret Sanger? That wicked woman was a hard core eugenicist and racist. Shouldn’t that make the anti-fa and BLM folks angry?

  2. The Civil War had EVERYTHING to do with slavery; it’s just that Southerners like to skirt the subject by making it about the individual states’ ability to leave the Union. Fact is, if slavery didn’t exist at that point in history, the states that ultimately joined the Confederacy wouldn’t have been thinking about seceding from the Union.

    And yes, I see no reason to have a statue or anything honoring either Lenin or Stalin in the US. They contributed nothing to the history of the US (well, nothing good); a statue or other memorial should be reserved for people that have made major positive impact on the country.

  3. PaulS, there were many factors that kicked off the civil war, slavery was not the primary reason,The Congress at that time heavily favored the industrialized northern states to the point of demanding that the South sell is cotton and other raw materials only to the factories in the north, rather than to other countries. The Congress also taxed the finished materials that the northern industries produced heavily, making finished products that the South wanted, unaffordable.I know for many years, we have been taught that the Civil War was all about the abolition of slavery, but this truly did not become a major issue, with the exception of John Brown’s raid on Harper’s Ferry, until after the Battle of Antietam in September 1862, President Lincoln’s first inaugural address, he said, “I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the states where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so.” During the war, in an 1862 letter to the New York Daily Tribune editor Horace Greeley, Lincoln said, “My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and it is not either to save or destroy slavery.”……..in other words slavery was not a primary start of the war……Lincoln was against slavery, but he also didn’t think the black people were on equal ground as white people, here are a couple quotes………”I have no purpose to introduce political and social equality between the white and black races. There is physical difference between the two which, in my judgment, will probably forever forbid their living together upon the footing of perfect equality, and inasmuch as it becomes a necessity that there must be a difference, I, as well as Judge Douglas, am in favor of the race to which I belong having the superior position”………..”Our republican system was meant for a homogeneous people. As long as blacks continue to live with the whites they constitute a threat to the national life. Family life may also collapse and the increase of mixed breed bastards may some day challenge the supremacy of the white man”……..For much of his career, Lincoln believed that colonization—or the idea that a majority of the African-American population should leave the United States and settle in Africa or Central America—was the best way to confront the problem of slavery.
