American history is under attack as dozens upon dozens of statues have toppled or removed amid the ongoing racially-motivated riots around the country. Sadly, on some level, America’s government just let it happen. Rioters in our urban cities were allowed by local officials to topple and desecrate historical monuments. While Trump did what he could to encourage states’ use of the National Guard and even signed legislation to protect monuments, the federal government cannot solve everything. It was ultimately up to the states to defend America’s heritage, and many of them failed.
One person who is not the least bit concerned with vicious domestic attacks on our country is Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
At a press conference on Thursday, a reporter asked Pelosi about the Christopher Columbus statue that protestors toppled and threw into the harbor in Pelosi’s hometown of Baltimore. She simply said, “People will do what they do.” The 14-foot marble statue was demolished by rioters on the 4th of July, and after being torn to pieces, the rubble was thrown into the nearby harbor. City officials were only able to retrieve a few parts of the statue from the Inner Harbor.
Pelosi elaborated, casting blame on the city for not having taken the statue down earlier. Placing no responsibility on the rioters for their actions, the California Democrat said, “It would have been a good idea… from a safety standpoint,” if local officials had decided to take it down themselves. She continued, “If the community doesn’t want the statue, the statue shouldn’t be there.”
Hypocritically, she doubled down, “I don’t care much about statues,” Pelosi said.
If she doesn’t care about statues, then why is she requesting that the United States Capitol take down 11 confederate statues? In a Wednesday letter, Pelosi wrote, “The statues in the Capitol should embody our highest ideals as Americans, expressing who we are and who we aspire to be as a nation.”
That’s how the Democrats operate. They have a double standard for everything. Pelosi doesn’t care about the statues issue when it doesn’t align with her agenda, but when it does, she quickly snaps into gear.
This comes as Wikipedia released a lengthy, grim list of all the monuments that both the rioters toppled themselves, and various cities have been pressured into removing. It describes all reported statues that have been removed, including many confederate statues, as well as, those of our Founding Fathers, former presidents, and abolitionists.
It is deeply saddening to see names on that list include those of heroic Americans who worked to free slaves, like Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. Even worse, what this truly reflects is the ability of the Left to brainwash people into believing that we are an inherently racist country, as well as how far modern America has strayed away from its foundations. Even abolitionists and people of color who disagree with the Left are painted as the “bad guys” in today’s America. Today’s Americans don’t know their history, which is demonized by the Left, making them so susceptible to believing anything they hear. It’s truly a shame that we’ve come to this place, however, hopefully we can continue to educate people who are misguided by the Left.
Our very future depends on it.
