    Actually, it's apples to apples.

    You: "Stalin got rid of monuments..." and "Still Stalin removed all monuments and everything else to past leaders when he took over"

    The U.S. removed "monuments and everything else to past leaders" such as statues and murals of Saddam. You'll have to explain the difference other than you likely agreed with removing "monuments....to past leaders" when the leader was Saddam, but want monuments of past leaders of the Confederacy kept up.

    Sorry, but the majority black population of Memphis might disagree with you about a statue of the reported founder of the KKK and general for the Confederacy.

    Nope its apples to jackhammers. You're talking about a significant change in one country vs someone who is obviously off their nut removing any evidence of the past that ever existed. What the politicians are wanting to do in this nation is akin to the Taliban or ISIS getting rid of anything they don't like. In other words Stalin removing monuments he didn't like when he took over as dictator is the same as the politicians trying to rid the South of our heroes.

    I know where President Davis is buried. I was only aware of the attempt to remove the statue and desecrate the grave of General Forrest. However Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, where President Davis and family are buried, is private property.

    Oh, sorry, you're right. Bedford will be used to it by now. They desecrated his original grave to move him to the park. From wiki:

    Forrest was buried at Elmwood Cemetery.[58] In 1904 the remains of Forrest and his wife Mary were disinterred from Elmwood and moved to a Memphis city park originally named Forrest Park in his honor, that has since been renamed Health Sciences Park.[60]

    Yeah, well, if I look at all of human recorded history, I'll see that when regimes change, virtually all of them remove many or all of the monuments to the old regime and replace them with the new. E.g, see, Iraq, circa 2003.

    Prove my point again. Nice to see you doing that. We have been through how many "regime changes" over the last 150 years? No one bothered the Confederate monuments or anything else until now. Should tell you something.
