Reaction extreme to General Lee toy car

Share Adjust Comment Print

I write this in response to the complaint of a picture of the General Lee toy car on a Chatham-Kent councillor’s Facebook page.

I personally believe that issues like this have been taken to the extreme. There was a vendetta on the East Coast to remove statues of General Cornwallis and a movement to rid statues of Sir John A. Macdonald. Where will it end?

Do the complainants want to rewrite history? What will they do when a documentary on the Holocaust comes on TV? Will this offend them also?

This is our history; learn to live with it!

We will not forget what has happened whether it was right or wrong. Get over it!
