    And that is the same thing with this topic. Funny that you cannot see that.

    I'll disagree that the media isn't biased as well... It's pretty well established that the left owns the media with few exceptions (fox).
    That is because Fox, whose bias is well documented, keeps telling you that.

    There's that broad brush... See you're not so different either.

    No it is a pointed brush directed at you.

    I just love all these patriotic American Nazi apologists.

    Just a thought. And A snark-free thought at that.
    I think a lot of this "All we're hearing is how the left wants to take down every statue blah, blah, blah..." is generated by the right-wing media outlets, of which there are many more than just Fox. Sure, there are people on the left and middle that are saying that the statues should probably come down. Many of those people are saying that in measured tones and with a lot of thought and reasoning. Others not so much. But when the conservative revenue-generating media wants to tell the story, which narrative are they going to focus on? The one with a nuanced discussion of the merits? Of course not! Look, I actually listen to a couple of hours of crazy rightwing radio per week. They are going absolutely nuts saying that the left is going to want to tear down the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorials soon.
