Pelosi: Let’s ‘Review’ Taking Down Statues of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggests there should be a review of historical statues, including those of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

Pelosi said she would be “all for” such a review during a discussion with the Washington Post Live, noting the process would be a better solution than simply tearing down the statues.

“I would say, rather than tearing down and defacing, why don’t we just have a review,” she said.

The California Democrat noted that the lives of our first and third presidents do not equate to confederates who fought against the union, but all should be evaluated nonetheless.

“I’m all for it. Let’s review this,” Pelosi again said. “Why are we glorifying the sins of the past? That doesn’t mean because Thomas Jefferson or George Washington or others were slaveowners that we should undermine what they did for our country.”

“That’s a different story,” she continued. “But you know what, subject everything to scrutiny and make a decision.”

Is Trump going to win?

 

Confederate Statues Need to Come Down

While suggesting a review was in order, Pelosi also stated that statues of confederate figures need to come down. Period, end of story.

“These Confederates – Jefferson Davis, Alexander Stephens – they committed treason against the United States in the name of slavery,” she explained. “I think that’s a different story.”

“Let’s take it down safely, so that we’re not hurting anybody when the statue comes down or costing more money to get rid of it or get rid of the defacing of something that might not – shouldn’t have been,” continued Madame Speaker.

That last part is critical. She is literally arguing that we need to follow a more civilized approach to removing statues – not because of law and order – but because these rioters are too stupid to know what they’re taking down.

 

 

She Might Be Right

The latter part, Pelosi may have a point.

Earlier this week, non-peaceful protesters in Madison, Wisconsin, tore down a statue of Hans Christian Heg, a Norwegian-American immigrant who died fighting to end slavery during the Civil War.

Vandals have also targeted statues of Ulysses S Grant — the Union general responsible for the defeat of the Confederacy, while liberal lawmakers have also gone after those of Teddy Roosevelt, who invited Booker T. Washington to dine with him in the White House.

 

They are ignorant of history, so Pelosi wants the decision in the hands of lawmakers.

Of course, Jefferson and Washington are likely rolling over in their graves at the thought of having their legacy decided by unhinged, left-wing socialists such as Pelosi and her ilk.

Earlier this week, President Trump “authorized” law enforcement officials to arrest anyone attempting to destroy historic statues on federal property, noting the crime is punishable by up to ten years in prison.
