Dominic replied to Portnoy's discussion History in the group The Great Debate
"I think the thing about when neo-confederates pull out the "ordinary soldier didn't fight for slavery" argument is that few, if any, ever cite actual soldiers' words in support of this argument. Surely there are CSA soldier…"

"Even if a monument "commemorates those that gave their lives", it is commemorating those that gave their lives in the service of a political regime whose primary goal was enslavement of blacks, regardless of how those individual soldiers…"

"He did talk about the true meaning of monuments. And if you dive into the history of those monuments you'll find that their original context was largely to celebrate white supremacy and idealize a political regime whose primary purpose was to…"

"That's not a confederate monument. I talked about confederate monuments. You brought an article that isn't a confederate monument. I'm sorry that you're confused. "

Dominic replied to Portnoy's discussion History in the group The Great Debate
"The origin and true meaning of the confederate monuments was to celebrate white supremacy by erecting statues of people who fought to preserve and expand enslavement of blacks."

Dominic replied to Portnoy's discussion History in the group The Great Debate
"Native, it wasn't that Confederates were considered soldiers. The law made them eligible for the same monetary veteran benefits like pensions as their US counterparts. Since all CSA vets were deceased at that point, it was more of a measure for…"

"I don't advocate mobs pulling down statues. But it's an interesting twist of historiography that we revere a mob that tore down one statue, and revile one that tore down another. "

Dominic replied to Portnoy's discussion History in the group The Great Debate
"1st, I don't advocate mobs pulling down statues. Though I do remember a rowdy mob pulling down a statue of King George III in NYC in 1776... most people remember that mob as a group of patriots. The civil processes that have done away with…"

"I didn't see any looting and burning or shutting down cities in Charlottesville. You are conflating your image of one group with an image of another. I did see nazis in polo shirts and tiki torches shouting anti-semitic, nazi slogans, racial…"

Dominic replied to Portnoy's discussion History in the group The Great Debate
"The anti-nazis were pretty clearly there to be against nazis. To show that white supremacy can't just march through a city without demonstrating that white supremacy is not wanted or welcome. The two sides are not equivalent on any plane at…"
Friday
Dominic replied to Portnoy's discussion History in the group The Great Debate
"The Nazis and white supremacists used the statue as a reason to gather and be racists together in a group. I don't see much evidence that they really care about the preservation of statues. And if that is their real goal, there are many…"

Dominic replied to Portnoy's discussion History in the group The Great Debate
"You are welcome to look for these sculptures in the annals of any art history books or academic journals that examine their worth as art. "

"We had 97% in ATL. Were not able to make the drive north to see the full shebang (I got called in on a contrac), but should be able to see the next one in seven years. A couple shots from Little Five Points."

"Thank you, Christian.  Here are the English and the (Google) German translation.  (I am hoping that I was successful in attaching a file to my Word document.  I guess we'll just have to see if it worked.)"

"Yes.  Saw a ring of fire around a black disk.  Supposedly it was the corona, but it was plenty bright. Had so much fun looking thru my 2 pinhole cameras, seeing it on my tablet, and an occasional look thru eclipse glasses."

Do you speak German fluently?

A lady came to my church's weekly food pantry (which used clothing as well) who told the ladies there that she couldn't understand them because she only speaks German (which may or may not be true).  I told the ladies that I would have a simple set of rules translated into German, and with my one year of German in high school, I could show and read to her these rules next week.I translated using Google from English into German.  Are any of you guys able to check my Google translation for…See More
