The 'Fine People' that the Orange Clown wants to honor

want symbols of the Civil War, and statues of their leaders to remain in public places.
Lest we forget what the war was about....
The Confederate States of America stood for two basic principles, as laid out in its own constitution of 1861. First, it stood for a disunion of the United States. Second, it stood for an official establishment of slavery based on race. This is a matter of historical fact. Simply stated, the Confederacy was a treasonous and racist institution.

And

The Civil War monuments are a constant reminder of the oppression and treason perpetrated by the rebellious South. They were traitors — plain and simple. Their place in history is clear. They no more deserve monuments than Hitler does in Germany. The South turned Democrat when Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and Republican when Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act. There is a common thread here that can’t be denied.

The Bible Belt has always been the Base of the Repub Party and home to those embrace(d) slavery, no matter how they want to muddy the waters about Lincoln being a Republican. The parties 'switched' ideology again when LBJ signed the Civil Rights Act. NOW, the 'Evangelicals' are the base for the Liar in Chief.
You see any common thread here? 
One thing that is a 'constant' is the Hypocrisy of the 'Thumpers'. Their Jesus would be SO proud.
Some things never change....
