The Daily Caller reported that Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director, is calling for all state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately.
That’s rich coming from the leader of an organization tied to the terror organization Hamas, which isn’t very far in values from the iconoclastic murderers of ISIS.
“A fitting response to the deadly terror attack on anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville would be for officials in states and cities nationwide to immediately announce that every street, every school, every flag, and every public memorial honoring those who took up arms in defense of white supremacy and slavery will be removed or have its name changed to instead honor those who fought for civil rights,” Awad said in a statement to The Daily Caller.
“Removal of these memorials would be a small step forward in turning the page on the darkest period in our nation’s history,” Awad also said.
No it wouldn’t. It would be a step to erasing history, dishonoring soldiers of a time long gone, and worst of all, it would be the loss of an era that can serve to teach future generations. And where does it stop? Will they march on D.C.
CAIR has created a template for state governments, municipal governments and school district officials to use for introducing resolutions seeking the removal of Confederate memorials and other symbolism.
CAIR would love to recreate the oppressive hellholes they represent abroad here in the United States.
