Confederate statue removal became a thorn in many people’s eyes, who are fighting the liberal idea to have a piece of the America history forever erased.
Country music legend Charlie Daniels also addressed the initiative, speaking loudly against it. He also mentioned that the current liberal scheme of removing Confederate statues is much alike ISIS’ agenda.
Daniels spoke in an interview with Rita Cosby on Newsmax, and spoke of the protest itself as well as the closure that followed.
“That’s what ISIS is doing, There were pieces of history over there they didn’t like, they’re taking ’em down,” Daniels stated.
“Where does it go to Rita? I mean where does it stop? Is it just gonna be Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson or are we headed into Jefferson and Washington, who were both slave owners. How deep in history are we gonna go? Is everybody that we disagree with, we are gonna have to wipe every semblance of them out? Is that what this is all about? Is this where it’s gonna end, is this where it’s gonna go?”
During a press conference this week, the POTUS commented the very same thoughts, which resulted in heavy backlash.
“I mean, come on! You don’t have to condone what happened in the civil war,” Daniels pointed out. “We all know what it was fought for–you certainly don’t have to condone it. But they are statues of people who are part of our history.”
“If you don’t like it, don’t look at it,” Daniels suggested. “There’s all kind of things, there’s all kinds of symbolisms and things, in this country that I don’t like. But I’m not gonna go tear ’em down, I just don’t look at them.”
“They’re not standing there talking, these statues are not preaching, they’re not saying anything, they’re not shouting out some kind of crazy epithets or something, they’re just sitting there. So just turn around and don’t look at them,” he ellaborated.
In regards to the Trump attacks, he noted that people often expect rigorous figure, just like Obama, but got a human being instead.
“The guy is a human being, he’s not a politician,” Daniels said of the president. “I think that we tend to judge what he does by the reaction of politicians we’ve had been in office before because they’re so conscious and so sensitive to political correctness and trying to react in a way that the press will favor and I mean he just won’t do that. He’s his own man.”
“I thought it was well stated. I thought he said what needed to be said and, you know, I just wish they’d give the guy a chance,” Daniels continued. “Like I said, the guy’s not a politician, he is not a diplomat, he is who he is.”
And that’s all we needed to hear, folks!
