Confederates become Non-Persons

John Derbyshire's wife, who grew up in China, said this suppression of historic persons was just as it was during Mao's "Cultural Revolution." This is silly pandering to racist simpletons who want to erase all memory of dead white males who may have had slaves or were part of the Confederacy. These racial retards, while wanting to remove the icons of the past, also want to perpetuate slave  delusions and retributions ad infinitum. 
When Robert E. Lee surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House, in April 1865, Gen. Grant had the Union Band Play Dixie out of respect for his soldiers returning to the Union.  m/r

America slowly replaces its memorials with amnesials.
The transformation means America necessarily becomes another place with hardly anyone the wiser. If “amnesials” do not ring a bell, not to fret. They are designed to make you forget.
The city of New Orleans — the oft-flooded place and not the train with 15 cars, 15 restless riders, three conductors, and 25 sacks of mail — toppled a 106-year-old statue of former resident Jefferson Davis this week as part of an ongoing campaign to bowdlerize history through the destruction of Confederate monuments. The government vandals arrived in the dead of night. They wore masks. They blacked out the names on company trucks.
The only thing more Orwellian than the removal of the statue and other memorials is the rationalization behind the suppression. “The removal of these statues sends a clear and unequivocal message to the people of New Orleans and the nation,” Mayor Mitch Landrieu maintained. “New Orleans celebrates our diversity, inclusion and tolerance.”
