Donald Trump warned that if we give up ground to the radical left, no one will be safe. “Woke” activists came for statues of historic figures, claiming them to be symbols of racism. Trump said they’d go after figures like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson next. Guess what, they did.
Trump caught a lot of flack when he stood up for a statue of Robert E. Lee. The Southern general and statesman fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War. But Trump reminded Americans that he was a loyal soldier who defended the U.S. after the war. But Virginia caved to the radical left and now this iconic statue will soon be destroyed.
The statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee that became the focal point of a 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, will be handed over to a local African-American museum that plans to melt it down to create a new piece of public artwork, ending a years-long battle over the controversial monument’s fate.
The famous statue of Robert E. Lee will be handed over to the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center. It will be melted down and turned into a piece of art, the final artwork has yet to be announced. This comes as a blow to America’s history and heritage, as radical leftists seek to erase our national identity.
Liberals argued the statue was somehow racist because it depicted a figure from the Civil War. What they don’t tell you is that by destroying this statue, they seek to hide and remake a part of our history. A part that should never be forgotten. Americans fought and died to keep the country united, in one of our darkest chapters.

Figures on both sides of the war were important and should be remembered. But leftists have been poisoning our history for years, trying to rewrite it. By getting rid of this statue, they are depriving future generations of learning the true story of the Civil War and the men who fought in it.
Don’t be fooled. These leftists wish to reinvent our history so it supports their far-left ideology. This goes hand-in-hand with the “critical race theory” which tries to turn young minds against the values we stand for. But they are succeeding because they use race and slavery to guilt people into bending to their demands.
How long before the Washington Monument is ground into dust? Before the Lincoln Memorial is replaced by a gender study exhibit? Before the Liberty Bell is traded in for a rainbow flag?
