It was appalling to learn that on June 4th, Governor Ralph Northam of the state of Virginia ordered the removal of the statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from it’s long standing perch on Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia. A beautiful piece of United States history.
Only weak humans are afraid of our history. And the way they deal with it is to destroy it and remove it from sight…which is nothing less than an veiled attempt to control the citizens…and nothing less than the barbarism displayed in Afghanistan in 2013 by “Islam” and “Sharia” believers! FORTUNATELY it does NOT remove it from history only from the memories of the current fools and those who are afraid of the knowledge of history, right and wrong!
We should also be reminded that Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam is himself a former officer in the U.S. Army Medical Corps. The U.S. Army must have not been teaching much about bravery when he was enlisted as a military soldier. Retired or not, Northham should have the courage and conviction for all the citizens and face the opposing history of our republic with honor and distinction.
General Robert E. Lee failed and was defeated in his efforts for the Confederacy, but he was not defeated or did he fail in his devotion, honor and respect of the Republic of the United States of America.
Governor Northam is unfortunately much less of an honorable man, soldier and elected leader with his order to remove a long gone fellow soldier from the sight of all citizens. And that’s not to mention removing an important piece of United States and world history. Northam is no better than those of the Taliban outlaws who destroyed centuries old Buddhists statues in Afghanistan.
