Liberals Tried To Destroy A Confederate General Statue…One Small Problem With That (VIDEO)
One thing that you can always tell about some young people is that they have no concept in some regards as it pertains to history.
It almost seems like history classes are an afterthought in schools today, with some kids being so young that even something so recent as 9/11 is a distant memory to them.
Also, if you were to look your own name up online or on social media there is a chance that there is someone with the same first and last name as you.
By that logic, it stands to reason that there is someone with the same last name as you. When we were all really little kids some of us might have assumed that we were the only people in the world with our name but it happens a lot more than we thought when we were kids.
Added to that, there are people that want to protest things and events where they have no idea what they are protesting. They just start protesting without even making sure whether or not the thing they are protesting actually exists.
Protesters in North Carolina defaced a statue dedicated to a World War II general because they thought it was a Confederate statue, according to a report.
The statue to 101st Airborne General William C. Lee was defaced outside a museum in his hometown of Dunn, North Carolina, according to CBS 17.
The statue sits outside the General William C. Lee Airborne Museum in the very town where he was born, but the social activists still defaced it.
“This is a hometown grown boy here that turned out to be an international hero of World War II so to come and try to destroy his statue is just an insult to everybody,” museum curator Mark Johnson said.
“I think it was a big mistake,” Johnson added dourly. “Why would you do something like this? It really just irritates people.”
Johnson was further confused since the statue is clearly in front of a World War Two museum and not a Civil War site.
Johnson surmised that his attackers need a history lesson.
“I was surprised that anybody would do that to this museum statue,” Johnson told the media. “This is not a Civil War museum, and this is not Robert E. Lee. This is General William C. Lee from United States Army Airborne from World War II, so I was hurt and surprised that somebody would actually do this.”
Civil War General Robert E. Lee and WWII General William Lee shared no family connections, Johnson said.
Johnson also added that Gen. William Lee is as far from a bigot as you can get.
