Now these crazy commies want to take down a Robert E. Lee statue at ANTIETAM NATIONAL BATTLEFIELD.
Antietam was the bloodiest single-day battle in American history, with a combined tally of 22,717 dead, wounded, or missing.
Rep. John Delaney (D-MD) wants to remove the Lee statue at Antietam.
These people are absolutely crazy!
The only statues left in this country are going to be of Republican figures.
The Herald Maile reported:
The National Park Service didn’t put up that big statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee near the Newcomer House on Shepherdstown Pike, and has no plans to take it down.
But U.S. Rep. John Delaney, D-Md., said this week that he believes the statue should come down, and that the park service should review all monuments and exhibits concerning the Confederacy that are on its properties for historical accuracy.
Delaney’s concern over the statue, which became the possession of Antietam National Battlefield when it acquired the Newcomer property several years ago, is not simply that it recognizes an icon of the Confederacy. It also is because it doesn’t accurately tell the story of Lee’s misadventures in Maryland.
“I don’t believe that statues and monuments meant to glorify the Confederate cause and Confederate leadership belong on federal land, and they should be taken down unless they serve the clear purpose of educating people about American history and are placed by historians in the proper context for that purpose,” Delaney said in a statement to Herald-Mail Media.
