We all knew this was coming! The lunatics on the left are speaking out about Confederate statues, but THIS one really takes the cake.
It’s not enough for the liberals to leave our American history alone. Nope, that’s not good enough. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other liberals want to destroy all confederate statues everywhere….including those in Washington, DC. Totally insane!
These statues have been sitting there, many of them for hundreds of years, and now that the racial divider – former president Obama is gone, and President Trump is in office….well, I guess it makes perfect sense for liberals to have a new ‘project’ to keep them busy with protests. Now, that Obama is gone and #BlackLivesMatters protests have been all played out….these nutjobs are targeting America with their new pet project. It’s called the destruction of American history.
Do you SERIOUSLY think if you tear down all the confederate monuments that the history related to these statues, will be erased too?
H/T Western Journalism:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to work with Democrats to have Confederate statues removed from the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
“The halls of Congress are the very heart of our democracy. The statues in the Capitol should embody our highest ideals as Americans, expressing who we are and who we aspire to be as a nation,” Pelosi said in a statement Thursday.
“The Confederate statues in the halls of Congress have always been reprehensible. If Republicans are serious about rejecting white supremacy, I call upon Speaker Ryan to join Democrats to remove the Confederate statues from the Capitol immediately,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi said that when she was Speaker of the House she had a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee removed from the National Statuary Hall and replaced it with a monument of civil rights activist Rosa Parks.
“There is no room for celebrating the violent bigotry of men of the Confederacy in the hallowed halls of the United States Capitol or in places of honor across the country,” Pelosi said.
Ryan’s office responded to Pelosi’s statement by saying it was up to individual states, not Congress, to decide which statues should be placed inside the Capitol.
“These are decisions for those states to make,” said Doug Andres, spokesman for Ryan.
Pelosi released the statement hours after President Donald Trump reiterated his belief Thursday morning that removing monuments to figures from America’s history is counterproductive. Trump said that “you can’t change history, but you can learn from it.”
“Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments,” Trump tweeted.
Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments. You…..
“You … can’t change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson – who’s next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish! Also the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!” Trump added in two additional tweets.
Trump’s comments came amid growing calls for the removal of Confederate monuments across the country after the violent eruption at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend.
Ok…this is liberal lunatics like Nancy Pelosi going overboard!
Are ONLY Confederate statues coming down, because ONLY the liberals on the left are upset? What’s next Pelosi, Mount Rushmore?
What about Stalin monuments? What about other historical monuments? What about ANY monuments that Americans on the right or Conservatives are upset with? Where and when does THIS insanity end!?
Just because Nancy Pelosi and other lunatics want to take down monuments does not mean that those events in history didn’t happen. We learn from the past and move on. That’s what makes up our past – our American history. By the way, it’s called history because it’s in THE PAST!
Are liberals and Pelosi going to pronounce that slaves didn’t happen at all…when they’re done destroying our American history and statues?
This insanity needs to end! The liberal nutjobs like Pelosi have gone too far!
