No Reason For Statues Like Robert E. Lee to Be Removed ‘As Long as Racist Democrats Continue to be Honored’
Dinesh D’Souza, an Indian American political commentator, author, and filmmaker who released the highest grossing documentary of 2016, “Hillary’s America,” told WND there’s no reason for Charlottesville and other Southern cities to remove statues like Robert E. Lee as long as “racist Democrats” continue to be honored throughout the country.
“Let’s start with the fact this whole thing was kicked off because of an attempt to take down a monument to Robert E. Lee,” D’Souza said. “Here’s the irony: Robert E. Lee was the most decorated soldier in the U.S. Army. He was a man of unimpeachable integrity. Lincoln offered him command of the Union Army, but Lee refused only because his loyalty was to Virginia. Lee opposed both secession and slavery.

Charlottesville Shows How Dangerous the SPLC Really Is
Leftist media outlets are making all they can out of this opportunity to stigmatize and marginalize definitively all “hate groups,” using the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) list of such groups. There’s just one problem: the SPLC’s “hate group” list is an irresponsible and libelous mélange of real hate groups with organizations that simply oppose the SPLC’s hard-Left agenda.
Mainstream media ignores Antifa violence in Charlottesville
Conservatives and President Trump have called out neo-Nazis and the alt-right for their racist and violent acts, but the left has refused to acknowledge the actions of Antifa.
Hard leftists and communists marched into Charlottesville with bats, pepper spray, bottles of urine, with the intention of starting a riot.
The Left’s War on Confederate Monuments
The American Left has declared war on Confederate monuments.
Not just Southern military leaders – most notably General Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia – but even the bronze statue known as “Old Joe” in a “memorial to men of the Gainesville [Florida] area who lost their lives in the Civil War.” Old Joe is being evicted from where he’s stood, motionless, outside the Alachua County Administrative Building, since 1904.
The metallic history of the Confederate States of America (1861-1865) is being erased from parks, courthouses, and campuses across the nation. Can the book banning and burning be far behind?
