Stacey Abrams calls for removal of Confederate faces off Stone Mountain

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams called for the removal of the giant carving that depicts three Confederate war leaders on the face of state-owned Stone Mountain, saying it "remains a blight on our state and should be removed."

"We must never celebrate those who defended slavery and tried to destroy the union," Abrams said in a series of tweets posted early Tuesday, a response to the deadly violence sparked by white supremacist groups in Charlottesville, Va.

Erasing history because it offends him. Something tells me he'd be very comfortable in the Taliban - the methods are the same.

Isn’t this the kind of crap the Taliban did in the Middle East, dynamiting historic carvings and structures, lost to history forever? Democrats - our local version of the Taliban a$$h*les.

This is enough for her to not get elected. Will Georgians be stupid enough to vote for her?

A man I heard on the radio said college and high school history requirements are being dropped. Some took out history majors. The liberals are destroying our history and will replace it with the glorious story of the socialists. Shocking. History books are already written by ex-Dem. associates and liberal univ. professors. Leftist slants.

There are some citizens of Georgia who like that monument.

If all the people of Georgia are to live together in harmony, they are going to have to accept
differences of opinion about who and what is worth
commemoration (and not try to impose just one viewpoint).

She’s not gonna win.

Just like a Democrat to play the Race Card.

Oh wait... they’ve been doing that since the Civil War.

Playing off Americans against each other for political gain.

Stacey Abrams is in that tradition.

Wrap a checkered bandanna around Abrams's head and she could step onto the set of Gone With The Wind, sort of a poor man's Hattie McDaniels character, an evil twin without either Hattie's brains or charm.

Stacey Abrahms is a GA State Congressional minority leader.
We still have plantations in Georgia, complete with slaves and Stacey-like foremen. John Lewis sets the bar. Yellow dog aristocratic democrats lord this charade

Stacy, you folks keep trying to erase history. At this rate, soon there will be no record of the Civil War because there was no slavery; ergo, there are no African Americans in the United States. Is that what you really want?
