The radical left’s current obsession with the removal of Civil War history has drawn criticism from some of the strangest places.
After the Weekend War of Charlottesville, the radical left and the “social justice” twerps who blindly follow them have staged coast to coast protests over the continued presence of Civil War monuments in America. While a great many of these monuments were simply there to commemorate the sacrifices of brave men and women from over 150 years ago, the American liberal movement has been working overtime in order to equate these symbols with racism, bigotry, and hatred.
Across the country, vigilantes and governments alike are toppling statues in order to coddle the precious millennial snowflakes of the left while desperate, rational Americans plead with them to end this historical revision campaign.
Now, those looking to preserve American history are getting a boost from a somewhat unlikely source: The NAACP.
“A top NAACP leader on Tuesday publicly spoke out against the move to tear down memorials to Confederate soldiers in the wake of racial violence in Charlottesville, saying that destroying a statue won’t change our nation’s history. Esther M. Lee, the president of the Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, chapter of the NAACP, told a local news station that violence around the issue was simply not worth it.
“’You know that’s history. That was in that point in time,’ Lee said, according to WFMZ. ‘You can’t eliminate what history is. So I disapprove with young people pulling down those statues.’
“’A young woman died. Two officers were murdered in a plane crash and all for what?’ Lee asked. ‘Because somebody in their mind decided, ‘We don’t need to look at that anymore.’
“Heather Heyer, a 32-year-old woman who was protesting the assembly of white nationalists, was struck and killed by a car that plowed into a crowd at high speed. Eyewitnesses have described the act as intentional, and a suspect, James A. Fields, was arrested by police shortly after the attack. Two Virginia state troopers died in a helicopter crash while responding to the scene.”
The surprise announcement comes as militant thugs within the Black Lives Matter hate group begin to combine efforts with the radical left in order to take these monuments down.
Earlier this week, a monument in Atlanta, GA was vandalized and nearly toppled by dimwitted leftists who misidentified the statue has being pro-Confederacy, and just last night the city of Baltimore, Maryland stealthily removed four Civil War monuments in the dead of night in order to avoid amy violent clashes with the leftist mobs.
