Well is anyone else tired of these people referring to southerners who fought for the south to WWII Germans? That is more offensive than any statue and to compare the civil war to a genocide committed against the Jewish people by the Germans is a huge stretch. Also this monument in Morganton is inscribed with the names of local veterans similar to the Vietnam memorial so removing it is offensive to their families as well. This is not a generic memorial you are asking to remove, it is personalized.
