Democrats have been extremely silent about the protests and riots happening all over the country, especially House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, but now it looks like we may understand why.
Pelosi has actually called for the removal of evelven Confederate statues that are throughout the Capitol building in Washington, D.C.
“The halls of Congress are the very heart of our democracy,” Pelosi said in a letter to a congressional panel. “The statues in the Capitol should embody our highest ideals as Americans, expressing who we are and who we aspire to be as a nation. Monuments to men who advocated cruelty and barbarism to achieve such a plainly racist end are a grotesque affront to these ideals. Their statues pay homage to hate, not heritage. They must be removed.”
What she is not discussing is her father, Thomas D’Alesandro Jr.'s role in the dedication of a monument to the Confederate generals Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee when he was the mayor of Baltimore.
Pelosi’s dad said people should “emulate Jackson’s example and stand like a stone wall against aggression in any form that would seek to destroy the liberty of the world.”
“World Wars I and II found the North and South fighting for a common cause, and the generalship and military science displayed by these two great men in the war between the states lived on and were applied in the military plans of our nation in Europe and the Pacific areas.”
“Today with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions … remain steadfast in our determination to preserve freedom, not only for ourselves, but for other liberty-loving nations who are striving to preserve their national unity as free nations,” he concluded.
Ultimately, the statue was removed from Wyman Park in 2017 by Baltimore officials and not protesters or rioters.
