As in areas controlled by the Islamic State…
…so in areas controlled by moonbats:
CHARLOTTESVILLE — Republican gubernatorial candidate Corey Stewart came to this town to defend its statue of Robert E. Lee in a downtown park, only to be swarmed by dozens of protesters who shouted him down everywhere he went. …
A divided Charlottesville City Council’s decision last week to remove the statue of the Confederate general gave Stewart an opening to appeal to his base. On social media, he urged people to “defend Virginia’s heritage,” likening those who wanted to remove the statue to tyrants and Nazis.
That’s wrong. The progressives who have been methodically erasing all remnants of Confederate history are not like tyrants. They are tyrants.
But when he tried to take his message to this college town Saturday morning, protesters shouting “White supremacy has got to go!” drowned out his interviews and conversations.
Leftists’ repertoire consists of thuggery and coercion. They apply it both through the law, and through classic fascist street tactics like those on display in Charlottesville.
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Perriello, who represented Charlottesville in Congress from 2009 to 2011, supports the statue’s removal as part of creating a more inclusive environment. Lt. Gov Ralph Northam, the Democratic front-runner in the gubernatorial contest, has said local communities should make decisions about Confederate symbols, but held up Charlottesville as a model for creating a “welcoming community.”
As always, being “inclusive” explicitly entails excluding people. A “welcoming community” is one in which regular Americans proud of their heritage feel anything but welcome.
Making U.S. history “inclusive” is accomplished by demonizing and then purging anyone who did not comply in all respects with current leftist ideology.
If they manage to erase a historical figure of the stature of Robert E. Lee, they can do the same to the Founding Fathers — and they will.
