Published

A statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee was taken down from the U.S. Capitol overnight at the request of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam. Yes, that’s right folks, Northam, the same guy who rocked black face, is now likely attempting to appease the liberal masses by tearing down statues of controversial political and military figures.

The statue was numbered among more than a dozen Confederate figures on display at the Capitol, many of them were dedicated over a century ago. Northam promised to work toward removing the statue back in June. The state of Virginia supplied the statue to the Capitol back in 1909.

Each state commissions two statues to remain on display in the building. The bronze Lee statue was located on the first floor in an area known as the crypt.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called for the removal of all of the Capitol’s statues and portraits portraying Confederate officers, but the bipartisan committee of lawmakers overseeing the National Statuary Hall collection blocked the move and said only states have the authority to recall statues they commissioned.

Virginia’s remaining statue in the Capitol depicts George Washington, located in the Rotunda. State officials will replace Lee with a statue of civil rights icon Barbara Rose Johns.

Things become dangerous when you begin to censor art, especially pieces that deal with historical events and figures. It’s imperative, if we want to avoid the mistakes of the past, that we don’t attempt to sanitize our past.

Slavery was wrong. Anyone with even a slight moral compass knows this to be true. We must never forget the mistakes we made with that horrific institution. These statues are reminders of that.

But they are also reminders that people are more than the sum total of their belief systems. Confederate soldiers were still members of this country, brothers and sons who shed blood on the battlefield. It’s possible for these statues to be reminders of both.

Save conservative media!

What a horrible thing to say!

We’re just over two weeks into the new year and we already have a quote that may hold up as the most ridiculous of 2021. Remember, this guy was elected to office. What does that say about the people who voted for him? It’s because of people like Goofy McGoofball in the clip below that America has become such a liberal cesspool. During a Monday appearance on CNN, McGoofball said, “You know I was thinking, the Guard is 90 some-odd percent male. Only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden. You’ve got to figure that in the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative…there are probably not more than 25 percent of the people that are there protecting us that voted for Biden. The other 75 percent are in the class that would be in the large class of folks who might want to do something. There were military people and police who took oaths to defend the Constitution, who didn’t do it and were in the insurrection. So it does concern me.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1351196676036435972?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351196676036435972%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-democrat-argues-national-guard-members-who-voted-for-trump-may-be-a-threat-to-bidens-safety%2F From The Daily Wire: Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) added to the already deep divide in our nation during a online meeting with constituents in San Francisco on Saturday, claiming the Trump supporters who breached the Capitol on Wednesday chose their “whiteness over democracy.” Pelosi said, “When that assault was taking place on the Capitol, 3,865 people in our country died of the coronavirus, many of them people of color because of the injustice of it all. The next day, on Thursday, 4,000 people died of the coronavirus. Why? Because decisions were made at the highest level, months before in the Oval Office, of denial, distortion, delay, calling it a ‘hoax.’” She added, “I thought it was going to be an epiphany for…

WATCH: Melania Trump Delivers Powerful & Moving Farewell Message As First Lady

Gorgeous, as always!

She wasn’t unbearable like Hillary Clinton. She wasn’t as polarizing as Michelle Obama. But because she is married to Donald Trump, Melania Trump is the worst first lady in American history. That’s how the mainstream media will remember the woman who speaks five languages fluently; the former model whose mere presence is a sight for sore eyes. FLOTUS’s farewell message is one that should be replayed for decades to come. From New York Post: First lady Melania Trump on Monday released a nearly seven-minute farewell message urging Americans to choose “love over hatred” and “peace over violence.” The video filmed at the White House was posted to Twitter fewer than 48 hours before President Trump leaves office Wednesday at noon. “As Donald and I conclude our time in the White House, I think of all the people I have taken home in my heart and their incredible stories of love, patriotism and devotion,” she said.
