Monuments to our past

August 16, 2017

No, Trump didn’t compare Robert E. Lee to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. He said that the same leftists who are trying to obliterate Lee and other Confederates from history would next go after Washington and Jefferson and other founders because they were slave owners. And he was indisputably correct: just one day before, the Rev. Al Sharpton was on PBS’s “Charlie Rose Show,” demanding that the Jefferson Memorial be torn down because it offends him.

There’s also been a demand to sandblast the Stone Mountain carving of Lee, Jefferson Davis and Stonewall Jackson in Georgia. But why stop there? We already know that Jefferson should be obliterated, according to Al Sharpton. And Washington owned slaves, too. Lincoln freed the slaves but said some racist things in personal letters and didn’t want to put the Civil War in the past. That proves he doesn’t live up to the current moral standards of the left (indeed, the Lincoln Memorial was defaced with graffiti this week). And even though he has been praised as a role model by no less than Hillary Clinton, Theodore Roosevelt was the subject of demands from leftists that his statue be removed from the American Museum of Natural History because he was a racist.

Okay, let’s take roll: Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt. That’s it: we have to blow up Mount Rushmore!

America needs to come to its senses fast, stand up to this insanity, and tell the PC Taliban that you can’t change the past by destroying art and monuments. Indeed, you can only learn from the past by remembering it. Maybe this story will shock the vandals into realizing that being a leftist full of rage doesn’t give you a get-out-of-jail free card:

This week, footage of angry students pulling down, stomping and spitting on a Confederate soldier statue that looked like something out of Afghanistan went viral. I’m sure the participants were very proud of themselves. But that video record may prove, to use one of their favorite terms, “problematic.” Durham police say they didn’t intervene because of the potential for injuries during a confrontation, but the vandals will face felony charges. It’s already started with a North Carolina Central University student being charged with two felonies and two misdemeanors. Her attorney could argue that she was just rebelling because she disagreed with the policies of the government, but that’s the same rationale the Confederacy used.

It’s too bad that we have a small slice of the young generation that was taught that their emotions trump reality (they can change the weather, they can change their genders, they can ignore the results of elections, they can change history by destroying statues), and that rules don’t apply to them if they feel offended. But we can either disabuse them of those toxic beliefs now, or we can invest in TNT and jackhammer company stocks as we let them obliterate America’s entire history until we’re left with nothing but Bernie Sanders posters.

The only upside: the PBS “Civil War” miniseries will be much faster to watch once Ken Burns cuts all the letters from Confederate soldiers out of it.

    As a former citizen of Concord,NC. Who grew up with a confederate momunet on. the courthouse lawn. You have hit it on the button. I had to March to monument every may 10 as a child and lay flowers on it. I am not a racist or killer. So it didn't hurt me. Don. age 66

    Mr. Huckabee God bless you for your support, honesty and information regarding our President and the state of our country. I am very grateful for your daughter, Sarah being named the press secretary. She is gifted by God to stand strong and smart when attacked by the biased media. I hope you will continue to be visible to America as so many citizens are following that which is not annointed by God. Thank you and may God bless you!

    I would never have believed I would see the day when people would demand the removal of Confederate statues, the flag and museums. I Iive in Columbus, Oh a group of people are protesting the statue of Christopher Colimbus. They believe it represents racism because he found the country. They also want to change the name of our city too. Maybe we should replace all historic statutes with the liberal Hollywood elitists. They seem to have a great understanding of all of us Trump deplorables. Nothing racist or hateful about them now is there.

    Open your eyes and listen to yourself. Trump is the anti Christ and you should be ashamed for letting your daughter work for him. Shame on you.
