Dem Tim Kaine Proposes Replacing Robert E. Lee Statue with Pocahontas (VIDEO)
Despite the Democrat Party being on the verge of collapse, the party of Obama, Hillary, Pelosi and Schumer have decided to invest whatever little political capital they have left into the removal of Confederate statues. Virginia Democrat Senator Tim Kaine would like to see Washington’s Robert E. Lee statue replaced with Pocahontas (no, not Elizabeth Warren).
NTK Network reports:
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) suggested that Virginia replace the Robert E. Lee statue in the U.S. Capitol with a statue of Pocahontas in an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday.
Each state picks two statues to represent its history, and those statues are displayed inside the U.S. Capitol building. Virginia has chosen George Washington and Robert E. Lee to represent its state.
Kaine said he disagreed with the choice of Lee.
“Why wouldn’t you think about Pocahontas?” Kaine asked, saying that without her actions, “we wouldn’t even be here.”
Not only are Confederate statues being torn down around the country, but the culprits behind the crime are being praised and rewarded.

On Tuesday Takiya (or Takiyah) Thompson was arrested as she left the communications building at North Carolina Central University for tearning down a Confederate statue outide a Durham courthouse.
Now the university wants to give the alt-left thug a scholarship for her criminal actions.
The Daily Caller reported:
The student charged with pushing down the Confederate statue in Durham, North Carolina on Monday may be rewarded with a scholarship for her actions from North Carolina Central University.
The Chronicle of Higher Education reported on Wednesday that proposals are being made at the college to award Takiyah Thompson, who has been charged with two felonies—participation in a riot and inciting others to riot—for her actions.
News that Thompson was involved in the demonstration was reportedly met with widespread support from campus faculty and students in her Introduction to Political Science class.
“I saw the demonstration and the toppling of the monument. I think it’s a healthy thing for students to have a voice and to be leaders in activism,” said Jim C. Harper II, chair of the history department. “We’re going to do everything we can to support Ms. Thompson.”
Her professor, Allan Cooper, said that the entire class applauded when he revealed to them that Thompson was the person charged with toppling the statue. Following the news, Cooper sent an email to the chair to propose giving Thompson a scholarship.
