Wanting to inflame racial tensions Democrats need all statues of generals removed. Oh, and Christopher Columbus is hated by them , too.
It will not be long until they go after George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and some were racist.
That will not be a surprise.
“American history is not all glorious… George Washington was a slave owner, CNN commentator Angela Rye said in August 2017. “We will need to phone slave owners outside for exactly what they are. Whether we think they have been protecting American freedom or not, he was not protecting my liberty,” she said.

She said all the sculptures and monuments and memorials will need to be ripped down.
“To mepersonally, I really don’t care if it is a George Washington statue or Thomas Jefferson, they all need to come down,” Rye said.
Here are her comments that are complete, according to Real Clear Politics.
We must get to the center of the problem here. The center is how many of us were educated American history. History is not all glorious. I really like John to death, however that I could not disagree more. George Washington was a slave owner. For exactly what they are, we will need to call outside slave owners.
Whether we think they have been protecting freedom or not, he was not protecting my liberty. I was not a person — my ancestors weren’t termed beings. To mepersonally, I really don’t care if it is Thomas Jefferson or a George Washington statue, all of them need to come down. There’s a way to recognize…
I am not feeding to supremacy. I am calling out on supremacy. And sometimes exactly what it is, John, are blind spots. Occasionally what it is, is not acknowledging this country was built on a very violent past that led to death along with the rape and the killing of my ancestors. I am not going to allow us to say it is OK for Robert E. Lee rather than a George Washington. We will need to call it exactly what it is.
I do not say they do not deserve to be educated about. We need to know about it we do not repeat it. We are close to repeating it right now. I am not giving any deference to George Washington or even Robert E. Lee.
