Stop Abolishment Of History by Hate Groups
This petition had 1,131 supporters
This petition is being written in protest of the recent cavalcade of historical statues and monuments being desecrated and targeted by hate groups. We wish to ensure the preservation, quality, and currently held geographical locations of each statue or monument in order to retain its historical significance and preserve the notion that these statues, monuments and demonstrations all fall under the umbrella of celebrating the time-line of American history and culture. As American citizens of a great nation, we ask from our lawmakers that a law or amendment be introduced which would preserve all historical monuments across the country.
We, as Americans, feel that any abolition of our history and its many lessons is a grave injustice to us and any ancestors that may have given their lives for those causes or cultures. These monuments and statues are being labeled as "evil" and "racist" by those who would see them torn down and removed from our history forever. By definition, any inanimate object has neither the ability or awareness to represent either idea on its own.
All statues and monuments that have been targeted by these hate groups are statues and monuments depicting characters of Caucasian decent. No other ethnicity of statues or monuments have been targeted by these groups, and therefore, the intentions and characteristics of these groups can only be labeled as discriminatory and racist. We wish to seek judgement against these hate groups and individuals in a court of law in the form of reimbursement for removal of our history, and the damage done by slander and libel of white history by those individuals as well. We wish to use any grievances collected to set up two funds: one for any states use who has an historical monument or statue as a preservation and care fund and the second will be set up to give help and further education for a choice of either a) inner city school systems and the support of higher education, or b) a program set up to enable police officers and citizens to meet and learn about each other in a safe place which would allow for complete and total transparency.
We thank you for your time in reading this petition, and hope to gain the support and acknowledgement that this issue so rightfully deserves. As we march forward, let us not forget to look back, lest we forget from whence we came and tread those grounds again.
