Liberals and sensitive minds believe you can prevent repeating history by destroying history, all things that remind us of a past. It is the past that builds the character of a present and future. Not all of which is good, but lessons to be learned from the good and bad.
Seems to me the best way to repeat the past, is to have no trails that lead back to it. Pooof………destroy it and it never happened. Take down that statue it hurts my feelings. How does that happen when you never learned what it represented in the first place?
Instead of building and rebuilding highways we pull down monuments.
