“Political Correctness” and Removing the Confederate Flag

I wonder, for all of you who lament that it is “politically correct” to take down the Confederate flag, or remove monuments to the Confederacy across the American South, do you believe it was “politically correct” for the American Revolutionaries to topple statues of King George? If not, then why do you disapprove of doing something similar with Confederate flag or a Confederate monument? Or, did you approve when people in the former Soviet Union toppled statues of Lenin or Stalin? Or, was that the “knee-jerk reaction” of a mob? Finally, what was your response when remnants of Saddam Hussein’s murderous regime were eradicated? Did you object? If not, why not?
