Hours after President Trump said he wouldn't be renaming military bases named for Confederate leaders, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi flaunted her opposition by highlighting her work to get Confederate statues in the U.S. Capitol removed. Pelosi sent out a copy of a letter she had addressed to the chairs of the Joint Committee on the Library, which manages the National Statuary Hall collection - the 100 statues contributed by states that are on display in Statuary Hall and other places around the U.S. Capitol complex. Each U.S. state gets to contribute two statues and there are currently 11 Confederate figures

Abraham Lincoln's position on BLACK people, not uncommon in its time, is in alignment with Alexander Stephens. If Confederate statues must go, then so must Lincoln and Washington and Jefferson, and many more. “We have decided that the negro must not be a slave within our limits, but we have also decided that the negro shall not be a citizen within our limits; that he shall not vote, hold office, or exercise any political rights.” September 15, 1858 "I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races. I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people." Fourth Lincoln-Douglas debate, September 18, 1858 “…I will to the very last stand by the law of this State, which forbids the marrying of white people with negroes.” September 18, 1858  “I believe it would be better to export them all to some fertile country with a good climate, which they could have to themselves.” State of the Union speech, 1865

Does she understand that Arlington Cemetery is built on Robert E Lee's land and the columned house on the property was Robert E Lee's house. Do we have to move the graves at Arlington to somewhere else to accommodate her ignorance.History cannot be removed .

After all the monuments and statues are removed, how does that help anything? Then what? If a statue makes you unhappy you might as well face up to the fact that you are just unhappy.

The Democrat Party don't own this monuments. How can they remove them? Same way they removed the goods from Walmart, CVS, Autozone, and Target? The Democrats say almost every law is broken. Are the laws against theft broken also?

It is with sadness and reluctance that, due to repeated inane demands by Nancy Pelosi, frustration can no longer be contained. This latest demand begs to be challenged by Republican members of Congress. The totality of what Nancy wants reeks of leftist composition most likely conceived, composed, prepared, and delivered to her by a variety of “anonymous aides/donors.” By what authority does Nancy dictate what the highest ideals of Americans are or should be? By what authority does Nancy pronounce judgment on the men whose statues are on display on Capitol Hill? By what authority does Nancy demand that American history be rewritten to conform to political correctness? By what authority does Nancy dictate, “They must be removed”? Nancy demands? Demands? Whatever happened to God-given freedoms to Americans that includes the freedom of thoughts and actions by members of Congress? If the Republican members of Congress do not resist Nancy’s preposterous, asinine, and silly demand, they will stir the ire of conservatives beyond the frustration that already exists for the timidity they have repeatedly exhibited in conceding to Democrat demands instead of standing firm on behalf of patriotic Republicans who voted for them.

Since Congress made the Confederate military part of the US military again after the Civil War, she really needs to stop with the rewrites of history. Some of the best military minds in our history were from the South, and she needs to deal with it. Arlington was the property of Robert E. Lee's wife and her family at the time the Government confiscated it for the military cemetery. Is she going to disrespect our military graves by digging them up?

Democrats offer nothing to minorities but disingenuous pandering. They have nothing to offer. They have done nothing and they will do nothing to improve the life of one human being but themselves. LBJ destroyed the black community with the Great Society’s policies. Every democrat was on board and proud of it. Let’s be clear, the democrat party has done very little to improve the lives of any American, but what they have specifically done to the black community is disgraceful. It is a corrupt party driven by one philosophy, the pursuit of raw political power by any means. They have driven a wedge between the races in this country to strengthen their power. They have denigrated our founding principles, the Constitution, and the rule of law. They are now attempting to erase our history because making meaningless gestures allows them to wallow in their sanctimony instead of acknowledging the good and bad that has shaped this country. Once this virtue signaling started we all knew there would be no end to it. Pelosi has to be one of the most vile and disgusting hypocrites on this planet. She prioritizes the removal statues but somehow ignores the human feces that cover the streets of her district.

I think it might be a better idea to just get rid of NANCY! Come on Republicans, VOTE! We need to get back the House before the Democrats destroy Washington! We need to get the House back to get Nadler and Schiff out of the Chairman's chair!

Don't waste your time trying to pull the black community back over to the dims. More and more of them see what you and your party have done to them. Trump has won them.

So I turn on the radio this morning to wmal.com/morningsonthemall and they have frequent guest Gen. Jack Keane on and, of course, they're discussing the confederate statues, etc. And Keane announces that he is married to an African American woman originally from Mississippi. And they have had these discussions and that she says that we have to remember our history good and bad. You all are going to call me out, but really, the 7th generation descendant of slaves in the year 2020, wife of some general, is the authority on these issues? Not stated by Keane, but is his wife a descendant of slaves? Not all (real) African Americans back before the 14 the Amendment were slaves. And in fact, some were slaveholders themselves. So other than the fact his wife is of African descent, that's makes her some expert to comment on any of this? Please Mrs. Keane, tell me about your experiences as a slave? It's 2020 - not 1820.

"There was a gentleman who was directly in front of the statue and when the statue finally did give way it came and fully hit him in the head," a local Black Lives Matter representative told news reporter Brett Hall. "You could see his skull was actually showing, he was convulsing on the ground. He lost a fair amount of blood, we're asking everybody to pray for that man right now."
