<s>Robert</s>Beto O'Rourke Calls For Removal of Confederate Plaque [ed]
Newsweek ^ | November 27, 2018 | Alexandra Hutzler

Posted on 11/27/2018 3:32:30 PM PST by C19fan

Beto O’Rourke is calling for the removal of a controversial Confederate plaque hanging in the Texas State Capitol building, tweeting on Tuesday to “take it down today.” The plaque contains the Children of the Confederacy’s creed, which is a statement that pledges “to study and teach the truths of history (one of the most important of which is, that the War between the States was not a rebellion, nor was its underlying cause to sustain slavery).”

I will disagree with what the Children of the Confederacy claims is the "truth".

The only reason RobertBeto is bothering to talk about this is score more virtue points for a 2020 run.

Beto is not without sin. Why didn’t he ask last week why didnt he ask last month?

“Do it today.”

I agree with you, but who is this “Beto” person, that we should be mindful of his opinions?

I’m with you, but I would go on to say that the Confederacy was one of many Democrat temper tantrums that split the country. This one resulted in hundreds of thousands of Americans losing their lives.

"I will disagree with what the Children of the Confederacy claims is the "truth".

That's why that plaque should remain in it's place. What you've been taught and what you currently believe might not be the truth. What gives YOUR version of "Truth" the right to deny others their version of the truth? North Good, South Bad. That's not history. That's total propaganda.

Liberals, like Betto o' Rourke here, remind me of the "Brogan" from the movie "Epic".

Why is he talking about this all of a sudden? Did he just now learn about it? Or he is looking for media attention? Guessing the latter.

George Orwell 1984:

Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.

(In this case, the Democrat party)
