Liberals Social Justice Worrier (SJW) is considered most honest when its come to fight against injustice and inequality in America and any other part of the world. Liberal class very well famous for their blunt reply for any symbolic and Social Inequality. A famous case against slavery symbolism has been recent capture debate in the United states of America.
The Confederate memorials, which are symbols of a Historical figure who once supported slavery in various forms and even fight against North America for not abolishing slavery. The Confederate memorials now being seen as symbols of oppression by Liberals and removal of such memorials been escalate in recent years.
Here are the Confederate memorials that will be removed after Charlottesville- 22, Aug 2017
More than 150 years after the Civil War ended, the Confederacy is memorialized with statues, monuments and historical markers across the United States.
Some say they mark history and honor heritage. Others argue they are racist symbols of America’s dark legacy of slavery.
A nationwide debate surrounding this issue has been underway since Dylann Roof killed nine African-Americans in a Charleston, South Carolina, church in 2015 in an effort to “start a race war.” And it flared up again after white nationalists marched last weekend to protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a counter protester was killed amid violent clashes between demonstrators.
With the effect of such huge protest against the Confederacy soldiers and Generals, who actively supported slavery and North American movement? Many Statue has been removed from the many State of America.
Removal of Confederate monuments and memorials
This removal took place in the various states. Despite many other intellectuals said these monuments are part of history and have nothing to do with oppression in the current context. Liberals put pressure on removing the monuments:-
As reported by CNN:-
The removals were driven by the belief that the monuments glorify white supremacy and memorialize a government whose founding principle was the perpetuation and expansion of slavery. Many of those who object to the removals claim that the artifacts are part of the cultural heritage of the United States. Historically, the vast majority of these Confederate monuments were built during the Jim Crow Era and Civil Rights Movement as a means of intimidating African Americans and reaffirming white supremacy. The monuments have thus become highly politicised; according to Eleanor Harvey, a senior curator at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and a scholar of Civil War history: “If white nationalists and neo-Nazis are now claiming this as part of their heritage, they have essentially co-opted those images and those statues beyond any capacity to neutralize them again”. According to Stan Deaton, senior historian at the Georgia Historical Society, “These laws are the Old South imposing it’s moral and its political views on us forever more. This is what led to the Civil War, and it still divides us as a country. We have competing visions not only about the future but about the past.”
Now, took the case of East (India), where the similar debate is started by few people in name of Aurangzeb Road who was well known for his oppression against Hindus. Aurangzeb was religious fanatics who killed many Hindus in name of spreading his own religion. He killed his brother Dara Sikoji and forced Hindus to paid Zajiya Tax ( an Islamic tax for Non-Muslims). But Indian Liberals (Mostly Leftist party and Intellectuals) in show reverse the trend and defend the monuments, road name and even things which are symbols of barbarism against Hindus.
Times of India reported: AIMIM leader objected this decision and called it political play by ruling party.
Even many secular newspapers took different Turn when its come to renaming a tyrant name.
Leftist ideologist which is fighting against the monument of oppression in United State. Simply object in changing name of Aurangzeb.
The renaming of the road is a very unfortunate measure since it is widely regarded as the first step in a campaign to rename historical places and roads on communal grounds,” the CPM said in a statement.
Another claimed Secular party write to Indian PMO about that decision and discourage the attempt of changing the name of Raod. It says:-
JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav, in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, asked him to direct the NDMC to not rename Aurangzeb Road as Abdul Kalam Road. “I am not going into the details of the personality of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, but I would like to mention that history cannot be changed by just tearing pages,
Post Script: In spite of claiming Secular and Leftist ideologist. It’s almost shameful that Indian Liberals or even so-called claimed Liberals has the double standard when it becomes the case of India. In India, Left-leaning towards with Islamist fundamentalist or Maoist/Naxalites is very Vocal.
This is ironic in India that even if you wanted to start a debate on such subject, you will be shunned by words like Sanghi, Bhakat, RSS, Saffron terrorist.
And Most Ironic part is that Left has their own biased in East and west.
