Democrat Lawmakers Call for General Robert E. Lee Statue to be Removed From U.S. Capitol

History defines who we are as a nation, love it, hate it, but learn from it.
Liberals have no reason to speak out about Confederate monuments.

They became even more aggressive and started to destroy Confederate monuments!

Two Democrat lawmakers from Virginia are now calling for the state’s statute of Confederate General Robert E. Lee to be removed from the US Capitol.

Reps. Jennifer Wexton and A. Donald McEachin both requested that Gov. Ralph Northam (D) prioritize removing Lee as the state’s representative in the Capitol in his 2020 legislative session. The representatives said there are “countless” other choices to represent Virginia.

“These statutes aimed to rewrite Lee’s reputation from that of a cruel slave owner and Confederate General to portraying him as a kind man and reluctant war hero who selflessly served his home state of Virginia,” they wrote to Northam, according to a report from The Hill.

 
“As Virginians, we have a responsibility to not only learn from but also confront our history,” their letter continued. “As part of this responsibility, we must strive for a more complete telling of history by raising up the voices, stories, and memories of minorities and people of color.”

The current monuments throughout the country of both the union and confederacy layout an important time in history for our great nation, it provides the stories and timeline of what took place and why we separated as a nation.

It also reminds us of the sacrifices all Americans made, and it brings to life the African American heroes of the civil war such as John Lawson, Robert Caillox, Robert Smalls, William H Carney, Aron Anderson who was given the Medal of Honor, Powhatan Beaty, Alexander Thomas Augusta, Miles James and let’s not forget Harriot Tubman, is it really a good idea to erase the history of our nation, if we do it’s only a matter of time before great men and woman I mentioned will be forgotten.

How many of us really heard of these people, when I was a kid my mother insisted on visiting Civil War Historical places on family vacations so we would learn of the struggles our growing nation went through.
