    It’s an additionally false comparison because Lee never even owned slaves. So anyone who says that it’s a slippery slope towards taking down every statue of people who owned slaves doesn’t even know what they’re arguing.

    Change truly has happened in the USA, from being a country that bravely fought nazism, to a country being governed by a neo nazi supporter. Republicans are complaining but not prepared to do anything about it

    Here’s a little history lesson for you John. Lee did not lead the Confederate army because he supported slavery. He led it because his home state of Virginia joined the Confederate cause and he feared that if he sided with the north he would have been fighting against his friends and family. (People tended to be more loyal to their states rather than their country back then) If Virginia had opted to support the Union, Lee most definitely would have been a Union general.
