Well, if the libs have their way, the real General Lee, along with other famous Southern general will lumped in with the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, and other various and sundry genocidal maniacs.

Well they did take down a stature of Robert E. Lee in Richmond, VA of all places. Replaced it with a stature of the tennis player, Arthur Ashe because they wanted 'diversity'.

No. They didn't take down Lee's statue. They added a statue of Ashe to the other statues that stand on Monument Avenue.

This is something you don't want to be wrong about when it's so easy to get the facts and be right.

I remember that happening or at least the talk of it when I lived in Richmond

The Lee statue is still up on Monument Avenue (along with ones of Davis, Jackson, Stuart, and Maury). They added a statue of Arthur Ashe, who was a native of Richmond. Richmond is a city that is very conflicted about WBTS history, and the black “leaders” and Democrat machine constantly agitate to destroy anything Confederate, but if they tried to touch those statues on Monument Avenue there would be hell to pay.

Now when I lived in Richmond in the late ‘90s, a city councilman *did* incite his black constituents to vandalize a mural of Robert E. Lee on the city’s James River floodwall. He suffered no repercussions from it.
