Confederate monuments targeted by Democrats in spending bill

Democrats in the House of Representatives are gearing up to getting rid of Confederate statues from the National Park Service land, as they look to include requirements in a new appropriations bill in order to do so. The fiscal 2021 spending bill of the Interior Department will reportedly require the NPS to remove Confederate symbols unless prohibited by a law or policy.

Where is the solution for immigration reform? Trump keeps pushing for it, why are the Democrats arguing about inanimate statues?But of course the Left and Democrats target inanimate monuments! They cannot fight back and it makes them look like they are "doing" something. These monuments - to wives and children left behind, families torn apart, slaves freed and emancipated, difficult decisions enacted, blood shed over an incredibly divisive time period of our nation... are not just about "racists", and the Left and the Democrats want to take this discussion away from the voters and hide it in a dark corner as if it were something to be ashamed about?!? There is nothing shameful about these monuments. No, the Democrats need to figure out a real solution to real problems instead of diverting the public with non-issues over inanimate objects.

why do we need to keep these confederate statues up? I hear the argument about “preserving our history” over and over. why would we want the preserve the history of the confederacy, which wanted to keep the right to own slaves? we don’t need statues up to remember these evil people. there aren’t any statues up of hitler in germany but i’m pretty sure everyone on earth with a functioning brain knows who hitler is.
