“Tearing down historic monuments because of supposed principles has led to unnecessary and destructive civil unrest.
Interestingly, news accounts show that the two groups leading this purge of American history are hate-filled, Hitleresque white supremacists (who if they had their way would begin oppressing people groups they don’t like) and the Stalinist “Antifa” (who agitate to promote their communist beliefs). Even liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz is against this attack on our history. Dershowitz recently said, “Antifa is a radical anti-American, anti-free market, communist, socialist, hard left censorial organization that tries to stop speakers on campuses. They use violence. And just because they’re opposed to fascism and to some of these monuments shouldn’t make them heroes of the liberals.”
So these are the kinds of groups we want deciding what we teach about our history, which statues can and can’t stand, and what our schools should be named?
