A statue of a general who fought honorably both for and against the US government is not “racist imagery.” It is a historical monument.

And a group of people who assembled peacefully, did no damage, and dispersed when police asked them to are not a “mob.”

The latter point bears reinforcing since Think Progress is in the habit of referring to situations in which shops are looted and set on fire and in which people are chased down and beaten, as “mostly peaceful” protests.

Something of a double standard, don’t you think?
