Confederate symbols are still celebrated despite the ugly history they symbolize. John Oliver suggests some representations of southern pride that involve less racism and more Stephen Colbert.

  1. Wow, an englishman who looked up info on the civil war on Wikipedia and thinks he knows everything about US history, STICK TO THE BOOKS!!

  2. I don’t care what let them keep it let them fly they stupid fucking flags we got more issues to deal with fucking Christ.

  3. Put the statues in a civil war or civil rights museum. That’s not obliterating history, in fact they would be preserved in a museum. Plus, they would be used as history education tools, not public symbols of white supremacy. Which is what they claim the statues are in the first place.

  4. There’s another traitor who has his own monument. His name is Benedict Arnold. The monument is a statue of his boot, and it represents a battle in which he was shot in the leg—a concession that he did one honorable thing in his life before defecting to the enemy. Confederate soldiers deserve nothing more, and in most cases less.

  5. I say we replace the statues with famous country singers, and put the old ones in museums, that way no one can complain(even though everyone still will)

  6. When I was in school here in the south, slavery was barely mentioned. They stressed that the Civil War was mostly about the South not being pushed around. I’m sure in many places they still teach that down here.

  7. I don’t hate em. I respect them. Still, it’s a redundant national flag because we already got one.

  8. I am not supportive of public confederacy statues at all. I agree with a lot in this video but shitting on the dude who said slaves were expensive was shitty. His point was that not every white family automatically owned a slave. I wish they would have acknowledged that.

  9. Robert e lee could have fought for the north and belived slavery was wrong but he didnt want to go to battle against his fellow virginians

  10. The Confederacy and the worst pedo I’ve ever heard of… These do not equate. It is perfectly OK to hate Savile because we know he personally did horrible things to people. Confederate monuments should be taken case by case. Do we know if a statue was for someone who personally had slaves or is it a monument for common folk who died for their homeland? Slavery probably didn’t matter to the average Confederate soldier. Or the average Union soldier either, let’s be real.

  11. Ya know it’s funny that in every history class I’ve ever been in the teacher/professor made a point of saying that the Civil War was NOT started over slavery but because of state rights. Then when you look at the year Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation it wasn’t until a full year after the war had started that he chose to free the slaves, even though some UNION states actually owned slaves themselves. And funnily enough, if you look at Lincoln’s diaries his plans for the slaves after the war weren’t exactly expected of the great emancipator: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/8319858/Abraham-Lincoln-wanted-to-deport-slaves-to-new-colonies.html

    But if John Oliver says it then it has to be true right?
