The latest crusade that Democrats have embarked on is the effort to scrub everything from our past that offends someone. First, Christopher Columbus had to go. Then, Robert E. Lee. And now, anyone who owned slaves.
Unfortunately, that demonizes a lot of really influential Americans.
Like the most recognizable founder of our country. George Washington.
His plaque is being taken down from the church in Virginia he used to attend. Why? Because it might make some people feel ‘unsafe’. Yikes.
From Fox News:
Leaders at the church that George Washington attended decided that a plaque honoring the first president of the United States must be removed.
Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia will take down a memorial marking the pew where Washington sat with his family, saying it is not acceptable to all worshipers.
“The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome,” leaders said, a reference to the fact that Washington was a slaveholder
If George Washington makes you feel unsafe, it’s time to seriously reevaluate your life.
Apparently, the brave Tim Kaine has no comment on the situation.
From The Daily Caller:
Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine ran away from The Daily Caller Tuesday when asked about his thoughts on the decision of a local church in Alexandria to remove plaques honoring President George Washington, a founder and parishioner of the historic church.
Kaine told TheDC he would not answer the question, as he was on his way to deliver a floor speech on war powers. Back in August, Kaine called for all Confederate statues inside the U.S. Capitol to be removed, The Virginian Pilot reported.
Running away from the easiest question ever asked in the history of mankind.
It takes one second to answer that question and inject reason into the conversation by saying that of course the plaque should remain up.
And this guy wanted to be vice-president?
Taking down statues is dumb. A fantastic author over at another site wrote a killer piece about it that you can read here.
