Civil Rights Groups Exploit Superbowl to Destroy Confederate Statue

A group of activists in Atlanta are using this year's Super Bowl to remove Confederate war monuments around the nation.

The groups announced a planned for a Feb. 2 rally (on the eve of the football game) to be hosted in the city.

The  Southern Poverty Law Center said there are more than 1,700 Confederate  symbols and 700 monuments in America.  Virginia, Texas and Georgia lead  the nation in having the most Confederate symbols.

These sort of protests always confuse me.   People who politicize sports competitions, rock concerts, holiday activities and other special events for unrelated reasons rally accomplish the goal of affecting any chance.

Whether you're for or against the war memorials one  thing is for sure - nobody who's waiting in traffic to see attend  Superbowl related events is going to change their mind about a cause  after they witness someone block traffic and detour them from their  activities that evening.

Look, slavery was awful, no  reasonable person denies that common opinion.  But when someone empties  out their back account and travels across the country to attend the  football game of their lifetime, the last thing they wanna do is be  preached to about symbolism and American history.  You can't change the  past by ripping up an old statue and you won't win any fans for your  cause if you prevent normal people from doing something they've been  waiting a long time to enjoy.

Good luck, leftists, but this stuff never works.
