As you’re well aware by now, there’s been a resurgence in the debate over Confederate statues following last week’s white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Now many on the Left are calling for the removal of anything representing the Confederacy.
Among them is Nancy Pelosi, who last Thursday urged Congress to remove all Confederate symbols from the U.S. Capitol. Given that Pelosi has been in office for the past three decades, one can only wonder why it took her over thirty years to realize those symbols were present in the first place. It’s a bit bizarre that Confederate statues suddenly bother her now. But like any leftist politician, she’s trying to score some social justice points.
While we’re debating offensive symbols, will Democrats argue for removing anything that symbolizes the Confederacy? Of course not – because that would mean censoring themselves. And curiously enough, even they didn’t have a problem with Confederate symbols until recently.
Let’s take a jog through memory lane, and look at how Democrats like Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter courted southerners for their campaigns. Look:
And here’s Bill Clinton at a rally paying tribute to Sen. Robert Byrd, a former KKK member.
… and Hillary embracing him.
What do you think is more likely here: That Democrats are suddenly concerned about Confederate symbols, or that they’ll do whatever maximizes their number of votes depending on the political attitudes of the day?
I think the answer goes without saying.
