Black Caucus Executive Calls for Removal of All Washington and Jefferson Statues
Two days ago Tucker Carlson said the radical left would demand all Jefferson and Washington statues removed from public venues. It took less than 48 hours for Democrats to prove him right.
Today on CNN the former Executive Director of the Black Caucus Angela Rye called for Jefferson and Washington statues to be torn down and thrown out.
Rye still serves on the board of the Congressional Black Caucus.
Angela Rye: We have to get to the heart of the problem here. The heart of the problem is the way many of us were taught American history. American history is not all glorious. I love John to death, I couldn’t disagree more about George Washington. George Washington was a slave owner. We need to call slave owners out for what they are. Whether we think they were protecting American freedom or not. He wasn’t protecting my freedom. I wasn’t someone–my ancestors weren’t deemed human beings to him. To me, I don’t care if it’s a George Washington statue or a Thomas Jefferson statue or a Robert E. Lee statue, they all need to come down.
These statements are not just offensive but insanely ignorant.
The US was one of the first countries to abolish slavery in world history. Hundreds of thousands of Americans died to free the slaves.
But these selfish fools could not care less.
