Why would the beautiful reconciliation monument be torn down? They promised monuments in cemeteries would remain untouched, but their agenda means everything.
What is the only reason to take down a historical reconciliation statue?
The US Army is removing it after a so-called bipartisan committee made the decision, and they are ignoring all laws meant to protect it. It’s divisive.
Maybe they could replace it with one of their perverts. Aidan Maese Czernopski might like it after his Senate performance.
Taking down statues takes down history and doesn’t change a thing about slavery. Someone has to explain why no one cares about the sex trafficking and the slavery we are bringing into this country from over the border. We are allowing child sex traffickers into this country. That’s the slavery that should consume us.
The Arlington Reconciliation Monument will be removed likely in 5 days from now. I still hope for Congress to step in, but I don’t see it happening to be honest. Do you guys remember when they said monuments in cemeteries would remain untouched? They were lying. pic.twitter.com/iNE3wVomiX

THE REASONS FOR REMOVAL: HATE AND BLACK LIVES MATTER
The X poster asked what could possibly be wrong with a Reconciliation monument. The answers are hateful, attacking the dead.
The poster, Blue and Butternut, indicated s/he had the answer – hate. Hate is tearing it down.
This is history. These same people who tear these down want our Founding Fathers gone, too, replaced by statues of some ridiculous people.
The Washington Post complained that dozens of GOP tried to save it. WaPo said, “The commission found about 1,100 assets that commemorate the Confederacy, including base names and street signs, and advised the Pentagon on what should be removed or changed.” This was the last.
Gov. Youngkin is disappointed and said the Army is overstepping. It’s costing $3 million to take it down and leave nothing but a base in its place. Gov. Youngkin will have it erected in New Market Battlefield State Park, 100 miles away.
