WEB Notes: Of course they don’t. Most Americans want to value the history of the nation. I am ashamed of the other 38% who did want to tear them down. Keep the propaganda going in the news. Keep telling us lies about them all being horrible men and watch these poll numbers flip. Do not be a sheep. Use the mind your Heavenly Father gave you to think for yourself.
In the wake of the violence in Charlottesville last weekend, many politicians and activists have called for statues honoring Confederate soldiers to be torn down. A new poll, however, shows that most Americans, including a plurality of African-Americans, don’t agree with efforts to tear down Confederate statues. According to a new poll conducted by Marist for NPR/PBS News Hour, 62 percent of Americans want the statues to stay where they are.
