Apparently, in order to make everything right in their world, one of the current leftist fads is to attack Confederate monuments. How long ago was it that removing the Confederate Flag was the answer to all the world's ills? It was somewhat predictable that seemingly minutes after Donald Trump's question: "Is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You have to ask yourself where does it stop?” was declared ridiculous that calls were being made to remove those very monuments and recognition.
One of the strangest acts I saw was a gentleman taking a hammer to a monument at Garfield Park in Indianapolis that's not dedicated to some particular evil general or particular Civil War figure but is there to serve as a "a burial marker for more than 1,600 Confederate prisoners of war who died in Indiana and whose graves are unidentified."
