Virginia Governor Northam versus Robert E. Lee: Advancing Neo-Marxism and Identity Politics by Erasing Southern Heritage

 Robert E. Lee - Gallant soldier, true Christian, and true American patriot
 Robert E. Lee - Gallant soldier, true Christian, and true American patriot

In December, Two Virginia U.S. House Representatives, Jennifer Wexton and Donald McEachin, added momentum to replacing Lee’s statue in the Statuary Hall:

“As Virginians we have a responsibility not only to learn from but also confront our history. As part of this responsibility, we must strive for more complete telling of history by raising up the voices, stories, and memories of minorities and people of color.”  

In a press release, Wexton revealed her limited knowledge of Civil War issues and distorted belief in a common false narrative on the Civil War—that it was all about slavery, and there were no significant Northern political and economic abuses of power.

“Virginia’s decision to donate the statue of Lee was a part of a national effort to rewrite the history of the South’s secession and recalibrate the image of Confederate leaders.”

    2. Glorious words. Outside factions encouraged this
      brother against brother treason. You don't kill your
      own kind.

    3. I guess the Baptists have changed since you sang the glorious
      words in their church. Sad, damn sad.
