Confederate-era monuments are being removed.
Civil War statues are being defaced.
And the media is egging it all on in the name of “progressivism” — when it’s really just a method of political correctness.
However, If anyone of these “journalists” did an ounce of research, they’d discover that Robert E. Lee was not fond of the situation he was in.
Here’s an incredibly powerful quote from the confederate general:
“There is a terrible war coming, and these young men who have never seen war cannot wait for it to happen, but I tell you, I wish that I owned every slave in the South, for I would free them all to avoid this war.”
He also said the following:
“The war… was an unnecessary condition of affairs, and might have been avoided if forebearance and wisdom had been practiced on both sides.”
A number of local governments have removed or contemplated removing Confederate monuments after events unfolded in Charlottesville, in which white supremacists and Antifa clashed. In addition, demands for removal of the statues has grown considerably louder and more forceful after more nationwide protests occurred shortly after.
