Nancy Pelosi Calls For ‘Review’ Of Washington, Jefferson Statues

The Founding Fathers are up for a review.

Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi called for a ‘review’ to judge whether statues of iconic American figures should be kept in public, refusing to rule out potentially removing statues of founding fathers such as Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.

Pelosi was speaking in a livestream interview with a Washington Post journalist on Thursday.

The establishment Democrat clarified that she differs from mobs of rampaging vandals destroying statues in process terms, claiming that she prefers a legally sanctioned process in which various statues of American men would be removed.

Pelosi was insistent that statues commemorating figures associated with the Confederacy be removed, arguing that they are inseparably linked to slavery. She took a more nuanced position towards individuals who owned slaves when the institution was legal, without expressly ruling out removing statues featuring founding fathers such as Jefferson and Washington.

That doesn’t mean just because Thomas Jefferson or George Washington or others were slaves owners that we should undermine what they did for our country,” Pelosi said. “These Confederates – Jefferson Davis, Alexander Stephens – they committed treason against the United States in the name of slavery. I think that’s a different story.

I would say, rather than tearing down and defacing, why don’t we just have a review.

The legacies of the men who birthed the United States, transforming thirteen British colonies into a distinct and sovereign nation, are up for “review,” according to the Democrat.

Liberal cultural fanatics have swiftly pivoted from targeting Confederate statues to more mainstream American figures. Elite American cultural institutions have already taken steps to purge the memory of great Americans such as Washington, Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt from everyday life, in addition to vandalism attempts targeting Presidents Andrew Jackson and even Abraham Lincoln.

YouTube Recognizes “Unthanksgiving,” “Indigenous Resistance” As Alternative to Thanksgiving

This is even a holiday?

Published

on

Big Tech platform YouTube decided to honor the obscure left-wing holiday of “Unthanksgiving” on Thanksgiving Day, informing its followers on Twitter of the protest holiday.

The censorious Big Tech platform was thoroughly “ratioed” in response to the bizarre tweet thread, with users calling into question YouTube’s endorsement of a left-wing, slanted and anti-white interpretation of the history of the Americas.

A subsequent YouTube tweet went on to link to a left-wing academic project which likened the modern-day territory of the continental United States to various American Indian tribal groups. Many Americans of diverse backgrounds maintain the legacy of Native Americans to this day- especially in rural America. The geographic location of Native American tribal groups in the United States is not analogous to sovereign territories of nation-states, as the project seemed to suggest.

The holiday of Thanksgiving recognizes cooperation between New England Puritans and the American Indians living in the area. One would think this is something that liberals could get behind, but the Left has increasingly targeted the holiday for cultural destruction.

It’s not up to corporate oligarchs and San Francisco tech executives to declare time-honored American traditions as “racist.” Perhaps if they’re so concerned about the welfare of American Indians and tribal issues(a valid topic of discussion), they should give up their own land, property and massive wealth, as opposed to smugly lecturing the general public.
