CNN Plots Teardown of U.S. Monuments Hit List: CNN Publishes Map of Confederate Monuments in U.S.
CNN posted a map on August 17 showing the location of approximately 1,500 Confederate monuments and/or official symbols in the U.S.
The map will, no-doubt, serve as a hit-list for the frenzied Workers World Party members and others seeking the removal and destruction of Confederate statues in city after city across America.
CNN reports, “Roughly 1,500 Confederate symbols still exist on public land more than 150 years after the conclusion of the Civil War.” It explains that 718 of the Confederate symbols are “monuments and statutes.”
The outlet embedded a Southern Poverty Law Center/CNN map of the U.S. in the article–a map complete with green, blue, and red dots to signify the locations of the Confederate symbols. The green dots show schools with Confederate namesakes, the blue dots show courthouses that have Confederate monuments/statues, and the red dots show “parks, trails, monuments, municipalities, holidays, buildings, flags” that are maintained.
Violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, was triggered over the proposed demolition of a statue to Confederate General Robert E Lee.
Speaking to Sky News, Rev Jackson described the existence of Confederate monuments as the “unfinished business in our country”.
He said: “There are no Hitler statues in Germany today or neo-Nazi material flying around.
“These guys sought to secede from our union, maintain slavery and secession and segregation and sedition, and so these statues are coming down and they should come down.
“When you lose the war you vanquish your symbols. Their symbols should exist in a museum someplace.”

The original tweet has since been deleted, but not before PJ Media grabbed a screenshot of the post.
As of this writing, the article linked to in the original tweet remains the main post on the VICE’s homepage with slightly toned down language.
