Then why are all these George Floyd statues popping up all over the place? Memorializing someone who held a gun to the belly of a pregnant woman obviously deserves to be regarded as 'sacred'.....

There is no denying Lee was a rebel against what he saw as Union tyranny just as the Union forgave him for his role in the rebellion and citizens of the Republic erected a statue to memorialize his life. In yet another act of imperial hubris Marxist Democrats insist on overruling the judgement of the past first lying that they only want to remove the statue to a museum but now revealing their true agenda to recast the statue to satisfy their whims.

I love how you guys claim that Democrats who support policies you disagree with are traitors, but have no problems with lionizing a guy who helped kill tens of thousands of US soldiers.

There you go again displaying your ignorance. The Confederates were 100% Democrat. The same party that supported slavery created and supported Jim Crow segregation for decades after the Civil War they started. But that's all ignored in the pompous declarations condemning "Republicans" as somehow supporting the Confederacy.

Still no explanation of the Democrat lie that the statue would be relocated to a museum not destroyed. The Democrat Taliban has given itself the power to rewrite history with this action. In typical ministry of truth fashion it's deny, deny, deny the truth.

If I had been alive in 1865, I would have been a Republican. But, pointing out the parties from that long ago is a pointless exercise, given the changes since then.

George Floyd was sentenced to five years in prison for his involvement in an armed robbery in 2007.

The woman robbed, Aracely Henriquez, was injured by another man, and there’s no evidence she was pregnant at the time of the incident.
Despite captions stating otherwise, a photo going around social media of a woman with bruises on her face is not Henrique

So Floyd merits concrete recognition for armed robbery?

More likely had you been alive around 1865 you would have been a Copperhead, so-called Peace Democrats who advocated a negotiated settlement with the Confederacy. Abolishing slavery wasn’t a requirement for these negotiations.

Democrats support for the Confederacy was so long ago it doesn't count yet Lee’s injunction against conducting guerrilla warfare against Union troops, his pardon application with the support of President Grant, his signing a loyalty oath and encouraging others to do likewise, and his Congressional pardon resolution with a yeah vote from Delaware Senator Joe Biden in 1975, doesn't count, the Marxist Democrat mob has decreed its absolute judgment.

Lee wasn't pardoned by Congress. He had his citizenship restored. And that still doesn't mean that he should be honored as a hero.

According to you Lee was a traitor responsible for the deaths of thousands of US soldiers, that's not someone who should have his citizenship restored. Yet, when Lee has his citizenship restored nearly a century after his death with the approval of Joe Biden you continue to cling to the smear.
