New poll reveals how most Americans feel about Confederate statues A new poll released Thursday shows a majority of Americans want to keep Confederate statues in place to “honor” fallen leaders of the South. According to an NPR/PBS Newshour/Marist poll, which was conducted among 1,125 U.S. citizens by phone Aug. 14-15, the overwhelming majority — 62 percent — want the monuments to remain while a much smaller share of Americans — 27 percent — want them removed. http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/0...ost-americans-feel-about-confederate-statues/ POLL: Most Black Americans Don’t Want Confederate Statues Removed Most black Americans do not think Confederate statues should be removed because they are offensive, a Marist poll released Thursday found. Forty-four percent of African Americans believe the Confederate statues should stay in place, while 11 percent said they’re unsure. The remaining 40 percent of African Americans polled said the statues should be removed. http://dailycaller.com/2017/08/17/poll-most-black-americans-dont-want-confederate-statues-removed/ MY COMMENT: Notice how few black anti-statue protesters there are in these protests? Nearly all are white people. That is because most blacks recognize just how petty this fake outrage is - and because there is NOTHING in it for blacks to devote energy towards battling forgotten statues. In a sense, it is the Democratic Party declaring they will continue to DO nothing for blacks other than try to manipulate and patronize them in the most trivial ways. Nothing is more pathetic than white "progressives" who pretend they are black civil rights protesters in fake outrage because the MSM told them to go protest so they can get good film coverage for media ratings. Virtually NO ONE cares about the Confederate statues, most people think they are just fine as historic artifacts, and even most black people say they don't care and leave the statues alone. The vast majority of Americans see the anti-statue protesters and ranting as just malcontent troublemakers trying to stir up hate and conflict, since that is all it is. Ask 1000 people what they most care about politically in terms of government, and not 1 would say "Confederate statues." Yet that now is the #1 effort by the Democratic Party - something no one seriously cares about. Once again, the Democratic Party in folding in on itself has picked an especially losing issue in their non-stop quest for racial segregation and racial social conflict. They are desperate to get black people to hate white people. But, then, that is how the Democratic Party was created and what they do in every election - race-baiting from one direction and then the opposite direction. This also is why the Democrats are losing Democrat held offices by the hundreds, have lost most state governments and lost all branches of the Federal government. The Democratic Party is reducing itself to only localized power in some areas, nothing else.
