Assault rifle.

That is not self-defence.

That is your definition of a victory but not the widely accepted definition by political reporters and historians who view victory as gaining a majority. History will look back at the 2017 General election as a loss for the tories.

That's probably one of the most important points. I'm not sure getting rid of these icons is dealing with the root problem, but an interesting point or two here:

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/aug/15/the-president-of-the-united-states-is-now-a-neo-nazi-sympathiser

about why they might have been commissioned in the first place...

Strange and interesting article; it begins by speaking highly of Trump but ends by calling him a Nazi... He's right about them trying to change history and culture though, that can't be changed. I don't see why he's coming in for criticism on some of the things he's said.

It's fair to say that. My point was looking at historical symbols and screaming racism to suit an agenda, which is what liberals are doing. Not sure why they're not also taking down George Washington or Thomas Jefferson, fellow slave owners. I think that, and rather unfortunately that Lee is just beginning and the stupidity isn't going to end.

Going back to the protest about the Lee statue then, a group were permitted to be there. I'm not sure if this is specifically right wing, or the neo-Nazi, KKK, etc. and I don't actually see the right wing and the latter as one and the same. They should have been afforded their right but violent groups like BLM and ANTIFA turned up. ANTIFA dress covered in black from head to toe, and carry an arsenal themselves (they've used Molotov cocktails to get their peaceful message across!). They clashed and we all know what happened then. Trump was spot on to criticise all of them, I can't see why people are laying into him for doing that. I'm really surprised that after all that BLM and ANTIFA nobody dares to criticise them.

From the left wing Daily Telegraph today:

What is his history as a slave owner?

A career army officer, Lee didn't have much wealth, but he inherited a few slaves from his mother. Still, Lee married into one of the wealthiest slave-holding families in Virginia - the Custis family of Arlington and descendants of Martha Washington. When Lee's father-in-law died, he took leave from the US Army to run the struggling estate and met resistance from slaves expecting to be freed.
Documents show Lee was cruel to his slaves and encouraged his overseers to severely beat slaves captured after trying to escape.

You mean going into an election with a 24 point lead...A PM with a personal rating in the 50s expecting a three figure majority against a leader of the opposition that was a dead man walking....

and ending up losing your majority....Winning by just three points...Finishing with a PM with a personal rating in the 20s an opposition leader as safe as houses.... and having to bribe an Irish party to stay in power isn't a victory......

How could you come to that conclusion ??

That's not addressing the question though if he was a slave owner himself which was raised. I'm not a friend of taxes but I pay them.

The civil war wasn't fought over slavery it was a side issue.............It was fought to keep the union intact....

Lincoln was pro slavery before he was President and later wrote during the war.."If I could save the Union without freeing a single save I would do it" 1862...

Davis and his mates wanted the South to have its own Government and laws.

If he didn't agree with it why then was he regarded as a particularly cruel slave owner who broke up families, and that he ordered troops to raid settlements in Pennsylvania to capture free blacks into enslavement?

Trump won because like Corbyn he circumvented a negative MSM.

Corbyn has 1.4m followers...May has 380,000..

Social media is the future as the establishment are finding out..
A problem entirely of his own doing via his words and actions throughout his campaign and thereafter. You're right re. Twitter though - it's pretty much all he now has.

All GOP Presidential runners have 90 percent of the media against them.

Liberal media support Liberals.

Maybe; I don't have a great feel for the US media really. Interesting though, as here 90% support the right. Trump's made it far worse than it otherwise would be for himself though.

The issue is that he condemned slavery by saying it was evil but then in the same letter stated that slavery must continue and must not be abolished.

Not all slaves wanted to be free...............Many refused to leave their Masters plantation saying it was their home too....Many preferred the known to the unknown..

Slavery is abhorrent and the 13th amendment is a great thing but there are grey areas........

Every now and again, Trump does say something that many agree with, but it's tangled up with so much nonsense no-one notices. Whose fault is that? Trump's. He doesn't get it because all he's ever done is threaten to sue competitors and bully the 'little guy'. He can't do that here.

I agree with much of this. Get rid of Lee, get rid of them all. Probably better to leave them there and then actually educate about the history surrounding them. That history IS - removing the icons won't alter that.

Re. this BLM/ANTIFA, I seriously doubt they'd be there with their ordnance, shouting the odds themselves, but for the Nazis/KKK etc. Some 'free speech' should be confronted head-on and if the original Nazis have taught us anything, that ideology is probably one of these areas of 'free speech'.

Excellent point! Although it was clearly the WWI Allies' fault for the Versailles Treaty and therefore their fault that Hitler came to power and for what happened thereafter. Obviously...

In fairness to have a war you need two sides fighting eachother.....In fairness if Hitler had of taken over Europe then England wouldn't always be losing in penalty shootouts to Germany...

Disposable income is up since January..
Consumer spending is up..
Hundreds of thousands of new jobs created..
Wall Street is buzzing.

If this President could reconcile himself with the fact not every one is going to like him he'd be on Easy Street. Apart from Russia which doesn't particularly matter with a GOP owned Senate..

His political nous is making Gerald Ford look like a genius..

Don't under sell what an amazing feat it was for an outsider to beat both political machines and 90 percent of the MSM and become President..

People should really have more respect for a truly amazing figure. Ross Perot showed how hard it is for an outsider to resonate.

Unfortunately like Corbyn he is a campaigner not a governor.

He rode a wave. How much was down to him spotting it, I have no idea. How much was really down to those that wanted him in i.e. Mercer etc? Bernie was also incredibly popular wasn't he? Would have been intriguing if he hadn't got stiffed by the DNC.

Headscratch No I didn't, but apparently it's convenient to ignore the idea that Mercer et al drove the social media campaign and targeting, that the general populace were generally fed up of Government as before (hence Sanders' relevance) and everyone was/is fed up of 'austerity' etc. I don't discount the personality (even though I think he's horrendous) or his business experience (whatever the reality of it).

Trump beat the Republican and Democrat machines..

Sanders is another hugely charismatic figure...He became an independent mayor and Senator through his personality and principles..and his civil rights campaigning..

No everyday person could do what Sanders did either.

I've figured out US foreign policy in the Pacific, they're going to keep driving their expensively equipped (with billion dollar navigation equipment and proximity warning devices) warships into merchant vessels until they hit a North Korean, one at which point they'll cry foul like they did to kick things off in Vietnam and start WW3. Simples. I sense another genius policy by Trump!

Simples. I sense another genius policy by Trump!

Joking about an incident in which 10 sailors are presumed dead is not funny.

Depends on the joke surely.

Who said I was joking. US lives aren't worth more than those of other nations.

If that's a serious response, you need help.

If your head is surgically inserted up your own #$$ then I guess the 'nature' to which you're referring is brown and gaseous; so yes I agree in that particular environment he most definitely is a force of nature. But to most decent people, who have any sense of judgment, he is a complete idiot at best, or, more accurately a bigoted xenophobic racist sexist pig, illiterate, paranoid, ignorant, arrogant and maniacal.

I guess one judges him as wallowing somewhere on that spectrum; dependent on where ones own character lies and how one identifies with and in your case apparently admires his disgusting behavior.

I think he is a Class A #$%^&*
