The GOP: "We're the party of Lincoln!" Also GOP: "Confederate flags and monuments are to be celebrated!" Hypocritical?

Tear every monument to traitors down.. it’s not history it’s glorification.. they learn about how the confederacy lost in history class...

We learned how they lost but also how awe struck the North was and how many close call they had even though statistically they were superior. Guess the war they thought would be easily won wasn't so easy

The Republican Party wasn't anything like it was in Lincoln's time. If anything it closer resembled the Democratic Party

Try telling that to them, lmao. They'll brag that their party was on the right side of history back then while completely ignoring the southern strategy and ideological switch of the parties.

Considering they are the ones who won they can decide what they want . Since when do the losers want to rewrite history (by trying to white it out).

Allowing history to survive is not hypocritical. Neither is letting other people do what they want. The GOP are not control freaks. The left can't stand free choice.

You realize books exist right? Flags and statues aren't the only way we remember things?
