Russian TV compares tearing down Confederate monuments to ISIS vandalism (VIDEO)

From Kiev and Palmyra to Charlottesville – Russian media points out that cultural vandals come in all colors and creeds

Though the unrest in Charlottesville, Virginia has brought the issue of Confederate monuments to the forefront of debate in the United States, the movement to take down the statues has been simmering for a while.

Just last month, the removal of a monument in New Orleans commemorating a civil war battle had to be carried out at night under heavily armed guard – including snipers on rooftops – for fear of arousing large protests.

One of Russia’s top news programs, Vesti, weighed in then, comparing Russia’s acceptance of the architectural and cultural legacy of its Soviet past with wholesale cultural vandalism as practiced by Banderites in Ukraine and ISIS in the middle east.

The hysteria of those rushing to destroy 100 year old monuments still cherished by a large segment of the American population, makes them little different from other intolerant extremists, it seems.

The rest of you had better look to your own.
As for me, this is enough.
Texas must secede. A return to the Republic of Texas is in order.

If you are American then, yes ! You are absolutely right. Go out and destroy something.
You see, the rest of us outside the USA don’t give a fuck, just as long as you are fighting amongst yourselves and demolishing your own history. Rather than ours.
So get out there, get wild, get emotional and be a vandal/hooligan. We are all behind you !…… πŸ˜‰

If, as you claim, statues must be “taken down”, what about the Founding Fathers, who owned slaves and gained profit from their work (14 out of 21)? Among them:
George Washington (at his death, he owned 317 black slaves)
Benjamin Franklin
James Madison
Patrick Henry
Thomas Jefferson
John Hancock…

Go on, and cut your nose to spite your face.

In recent years, I cried when fantastic ancient mosques were destroyed in Iraq and Syria. I cried when I saw the ancient & irreplaceable art stolen from Libya, Iraq, Syria and several other countries. I cry to see US destroy its own history, merely because people will not read about the US Civil War — the topic on which more has been written by US historians than any other — or, so I’d read. The land now deemed US on a map has an extremely violent and ugly history from the 1500’s forward, including lots of slavery… persistent unto this… Read more »

“Vesti, weighed in then, comparing Russia’s acceptance of the architectural and cultural legacy of its Soviet past”

Any country must accept its own past, good as well as bad. One doesn’t change a country History, by tearing down monuments. We can NEVER change the past, but only the present, for the future. When I was a kid , I liked the music of Soviet national anthem (I couldn’t understand the text), and I was glad that it was reinstated as Russia Federation Anthem.

“cultural vandals come in all colors and creeds”

β€œThe past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, and the Lie became the Truth… 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. ” George Orwell, “Nineteen Eighty-Four”

Russia of all countries gives the alt-left a good dressing down for destroying monuments. That’s some really thick irony.

Where ignorance is bliss ’tis folly to be wise

Ukraine imports expensive US coal rather than accept the independence of Donbass

Damned if you do: US Treasury slaps new sanctions on Russian, Chinese firms over North Korea
