Condoleezza Rice Has Fighting Words For Liberal Snowflakes Destroying Civil War Monuments

 

Quite often in today’s world, many who feel even slightly upset by the mere sight of things they truly know nothing about will begin throwing fits to have the offending thing removed from sight to appease them. They fail to realize that not everyone feels the same as they do, but they somehow manage to convince enough people to back their insane and delusional rhetoric that it starts riots resulting in what we are witnessing today. History should not be deleted whether good, bad, or ugly.  History is there to remind us of either how to do something or how to NOT do something.

Condoleeza Rice outlines exactly why removing the statues of the Civil War era is a bad idea. Not to mention that we have a right to be reminded of all things American. The destruction of the first statue to be torn down by Antifa since the Saturday Charlottesville rally. It was a monument to Children Soldiers who fought and died during the civil war. These animals have no sense of honor.

According to the Independent Journal Review :

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice stopped by “Fox & Friends” Monday morning to talk about her latest book, “Democracy: Stories from the Long Road to Freedom.” Part of that road, of course, involved slavery and the Civil War.

Co-host Brian Kilmeade came out of the gate strong: “I want to talk about where your book starts, and that’s our constitution […] As an African-American woman, do you see yourself in this constitution? Do you think that, when we look at nine of our first twelve presidents as slave owners, should we start taking their statues down and say, we’re embarrassed by you?”

In a word, “no,” said Rice. “I am a firm believer in ‘keep your history before you.’ So I don’t actually want to rename things that were named for slave owners. I want us to have to look at those names, and realize what they did, and be able to tell our kids what they did and for them to have a sense of their own history.” Rice, currently a Senior Fellow at the Stanford School of Business, said, “When you start wiping out your history; sanitizing your history to make you feel better? It’s a bad thing.”

She then took a quick trip through the constitution as it relates to blacks in America. Noting that her ancestors were originally counted as three-fifths of a man, how her father faced trouble in 1952 trying to register to vote in Birmingham, Alabama, and how, in 2005, she stood in the Ben Franklin Room of the State Department and was administered an oath of office by a Jewish woman Supreme Court justice. “That’s the story of America,” she said. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and other slave owners werepeople of their times.’ What we should celebrate is that from the Jefferson’s and the Washington’s as slave owners, look at where we are now.”

 

Rice’s comments come on the heels of a tragic event that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday where many factions of hate collided over the Confederate monument debates. Within 48 hours of the rally, many things have gone from bad to worse in this country, and the victims of these actions happen to be many of the very monuments in question. Antifa and Black Panthers have taken it upon themselves to begin destroying historical sites and policing monument areas like vigilante thugs.

Gateway Pundit reported :

A crowd of protesters gathered outside the old Durham County courthouse on Main Street Monday evening in opposition to a Confederate monument in front of the government building. Around 7:10 p.m. a woman climbed the statue using a ladder and attached a rope around the statue. Moments later, The crowd pulled on the rope and the statue fell. In 1924, the Confederate statue was dedicated to Durham. Engraved on the front of the monument is “The Confederate States of America.” Above it, is a statue representing a soldier who fought in the civil war. “It needs to be removed,” Loan Tran, an organizer, said earlier Monday. “These Confederate statues in Durham, in North Carolina, all across the country.” There are similar monuments in several cities around North Carolina.

It appears as though the world has gone mad, and we need many more politicians coming out and condemning the actions of the left against part of our history being erased.
