Robert E. Lee
Why do modern-day Liberals want to rewrite American history taking away Southern Heritage? Possibly for the same misguided logic the LameStream Media uses to blame Trump for not including every “so-called alt-right group” they think exists. Scott Adams added, “Now we begin the “Was it heartfelt enough?” phase, along with “Why did he NOT mention group X, Y, Z?” (See the problem yet?)”
Unfortunately, it will never be enough. That is the sad reality of the game today. https://t.co/z890vxx4Fh

Dinesh D’Souza makes the point that while Soros’ paid rioters tear down historical monuments of Robert E. Lee, that he was one of the greatest men of all times who opposed both secession and slavery while the democrat party were in favor of both.
U.S. duped by ‘monumental’ lie about Charlottesville
There’s no reason for the Charlottesville, Virginia, and other Southern cities to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee as long as racist Democrats continue to be honored throughout the country, contends Dinesh D’Souza, author of the sensational historical expose “The Big Lie: Exposing The Nazi Roots Of The Far Left,”
D’Souza blasted the national media and Charlottesville officials for creating a disastrous conflict based on a lie.
“Let’s start with the fact this whole thing was kicked off because of an attempt to take down a monument to Robert E. Lee,”
D’Souza told WND. “Here’s the irony: Robert E. Lee was the most decorated soldier in the U.S. Army. He was a man of unimpeachable integrity. Lincoln offered him command of the Union Army, but Lee refused only because his loyalty was to Virginia.
Lee opposed both secession and slavery.
“And yet to the historically illiterate left, a man who opposed both slavery and secession has come to symbolize both slavery and secession.
D’Souza said the controversy is a massive attempt at historical misdirection.
Instead of truthfully confronting American history, D’Souza alleges the left-wing media and the Democratic Party are trying to pin the blame for slavery and racism on those who do not deserve it.
“To me there’s a bigger story here – the left’s attempt to blame slavery entirely on the American South,” the author contended.
“This is a big lie, because number one, most Southerners did not own slaves, nor did most Confederate soldiers. Number two, the Northern Democrats in the preceding 40 years before the Civil War aggressively protected slavery. And they worked in cahoots with Southern Democrats.
“The fight over slavery wasn’t between North and South. It was between a pro-slavery Democratic Party and the anti-slavery Republicans. This entire controversy, and the larger effort to remove Confederate memorials all over the South, is an attempt to cunningly conceal the Democrats’ historic role in protecting slavery as an institution.”
