"Know know exactly where to go can normally fifty seventh Orion rodent brain back to WTMJ nice sure Confederate statues and monuments be removed that's the question we're asking tonight WTMJ nights there o'connor with you until nine o'clock this evening and you're seeing and in several states that protesters are pulling down some of these statues and when I hear people talk about the fact or try to explain what the Confederate battle flag means or the the Confederate flag that it stands for southern heritage and pride and when you look and you see when these when these monuments were built when some of the states in the south incorporated the the Confederate battle flag into their state flag in in Florida in the state house that's a mighty big coincidence what do you think eight five five six one six one six twenty negative mortgage talking text line is it about heritage or is it about eight let's go to the phones go to will into kind of a walk good evening welcome to WTMJ nights hearing I'll be doing well I I think that this whole issue revolves around the great problem of historical illiteracy that we have in a really big problem of how we teach history like especially in primary education and even today in the south and in many places in the north because I mean like I'm from a condom walk out to the Confederate flag all the time on people cars and T. shirts whatever and historians dubbed this revisionist take that a lot of people are taught on the internet is it called a loss because the and it's the whole idea that the civil war was not fought over slavery but that it was fought over here any of the federal government and states rights and this is one question at the Africans take a right to do what and the obvious answer is the state's right to hold people in slavery if you look at you know South Carolina with the first state in the union and in the papers and within the first ten line waiver you've mentioned the primary cost which is history need to be better taught me nine states really well thank you so much for the call I couldn't say it better myself we couldn't you know it when I hear people say that all you it wasn't about slavery was about the preservation slavery yeah that was a big reason that was a big reason I mean there's no coincidence that most of these monuments have gone up during Jim crow in during the civil rights movement and did you also know that there are ten army bases around the country there are named after Confederate generals the U. S. army the United States military has bases named after Confederate soldiers named after a group that lost how is this possible let's go back to the phones is going to bring in a kind of a lot good evening Brent welcome to WTMJ Neitzel yeah I'm glad to be here I'm just telling you the history and what's happening with music band called sun bolt that came from the band uncle tupelo has a CD out called union and it talks about everything has come to where we are in history and what I see now happening and unique thing is the main song is the union and it talks about how Lincoln says civil service is how we keep the union together I come from a past history I come from the rural Wisconsin and my family fought on the union side I lost a family member in Dallas Georgia when Sherman sent the boys to the C. two weeks prior to the battle so to me this is very personal it's one of the issues where I'm like respecting what Wisconsin did and how we fought all over the basically the whole country it's one of those things where I'm just trying to keep the union together and I really want people to see this and here the Sun Bowl recording called the union and listen it listen to it from track one all the way through it explains where we are with everything so I'm just trying to see share this historical moment of what I've discovered I was in the business in Hollywood in Minneapolis and for me it's horrible things I'm just trying to share with the public because people need to discover this music of the guys that are visionaries and they saw what was coming M. A. study the past in the history so it's very personal Brent thank you so much for the call Sun Bowl is the is the name of the of the CD S. U. N. V. O. L.

"Com. WTMJ cares. Presented by first Bank financial center. Twenty-one dot TM J discussing the events that unfolded in Pittsburgh earlier today, Robert Bowers, forty six year old the suspect in as the president said, but it's clearly a. A hate crime. The FBI is running this investigation because of that hate crime. Element in play here. Like, I said it on the opening segment. I really don't know what sage talking points. I'm supposed to use. I just I don't know. And that's probably not good radio. One one for hosts, I just don't know. So let's go to you, and you can help we can just talk this out here. Let's start with cannon p walkie canned good afternoon. You're on WTMJ. Good afternoon. I'm really in favor of the second shield weapon carried because we get a lot of good people out there that know what to do with a gun in case something happens like this here. I'm not advocating shooting people at random, but something like this here. Yeah. People need to be stopped. And I think the key here can if we really think about both sides budging a little bit giving a little bit. As is the definition of compromise. When you give a little bit. The key element. You mentioned is the. The training the education the knowledge of okay, I am an armed guard at the church. Do I am I trained do? I know how to do what to do and everything like that. Because that as I perceive it is one of the scary things for people who say, you're crazy. You can't put an armed guard in a classroom or at school or in a church because there's a potential there that they may fire when they shouldn't and whatnot. It's all about the training and the education of that person who has the responsibility of protection true. But the other thing you have a problem with a lot of places that were no guns allowed or they target. I mean. Like, you say, it's both ways. But it's easy for people to go into a place that says, no guns, and because they know nobody inside going to have a weapon or guard. Thanks for the call. Can. I do appreciate it. Yeah. That's sign, and that's the decision by that property that company that business, whatever. For that sign to say, no firearms allowed are you not then kind of if not inviting certainly saying anybody who would be evil and have these hate-filled evil thoughts and manifest them into motive into action. Are you not saying we are a target? That's a valid point. John and Kenosha. Hi, john. You're on WTMJ. All right. Complicated problem. Can be resolved in the same manner as most people in this country, resolve their differences and incidents from its very beginning. And that's not an overall policy from the. Some other thing, but each each individual parish church synagogue school. Really has to say, okay. We got a group of people here. We have an armed guard he'll be singled out by the madman and taken out because he's sitting there with a big red light on his head. So it has to be maybe two three four how many individuals that can see on Kerry within the parish within the synagogue schoolteachers. You don't know where they are where they are. They are either does the perpetrator also the earlier caller said about the signs my community Bank. It had the signs countries on route four times a year to other banks within a mile. Did not have the signs and haven't been robbed once. So again, he's ready to stay. No that there's nobody carrying hope. The guy's not stupid. He's gonna come in and take him out as opposed to the other ones which are questionable that you might get killed. So I just think that every community every parish every synagogue re school should say within its own members. Would you be willing to do this to help defend us in you that were attacked? That's how I would resolve the issue. Thanks for the call John John and Kenosha weighing in a couple of very well stated, whether you agree or not this is the conversation that we have to have calm collected reasonable rational fashionable rational discussions about a really tough topic. Alain Paul Allen will get to you in just a couple of moments. The Atkinson mortgage talk and text line if you'd like to get involved four one four seven nine nine one six twenty on a day or once again, another mass shooting hits this country. And I look to you to help. Me navigate this discussion because. I'm outta comments. I'm out of thoughts. So let's just come together here for a little while shall we on this Saturday. It's four twenty six got worse. WTMJ WTMJ is.
