#1 They are US veterans now. You are desecrating veteran's graves.

Prepare for the whirlwind.

#2 Darth, I doubt they like any veterans - or servicemen - in Madison.

#3 Shallow, virtue-signaling act of a politician trying to appease his base and get 30 seconds of attention. The memorials to the Confederacy were erected in memory of lost sons who had died for a cause they believed in. They are part of American history, and recognition of their sacrifice and valor does nothing to promote slavery or institutional racism, that was decided by the outcome of the civil war. Being respectful of their lives was meant to be an act of healing and re-unification for a torn and divided nation, and to let us move forward to a common future for everyone. All these acts of disrespect do is worsen the already near-toxic race relations that Obama percolated in the past eight years. We are rapidly heading back to the 1950's with genuine acts of segregation, by blacks, and a sense of victimhood/entitlement that is undergirded by black racism against whites that is becoming epidemic.

#4 This $hit is getting ridiculous.

It's way beyond ridiculous. It's, also, a lot smarter than what they been doing so far - now they don't attack all whites (except themselves) but only Southerners ("first they came for the Jews").

#5 Not even the dead are safe from these communist bastids. Imagine, given the opportunity, what they might do to the living.

#6 It is bad juju to mess with the graves of people's relatives. Those who are doing this desecration ought to give some thought to the idea of how they would feel if their mother's or father's graves were destroyed in someone's pissed-off fit of pique. How would they feel if one of their relatives were killed as the result of someone's ignorant actions. Yes, this $hit is getting ridiculous.

#7 Some burial ground 'desecration' is acceptable, some isn't. I suppose calling it a double-standard would be.... racist.

#8 Really Paul is that the way to treat your most loyal voters?

#9 If I didn't dislike the commenter, I'd be inclined to give that last comment Snark 'O The Day.
