Super Stupid

Of Course Paul LePage Has The Dumbest Take

The movement to remove Confederate monuments and statues from public spaces is growing, but diabolical liberals and politicians won't stop at removing Confederate monuments according to Maine Governor Paul LePage.

LePage spoke to local radio station WGAN where he said removing Confederate monuments is just like removing the 9/11 memorial.

“What they’re standing for is equally as bad,” LePage said, referring to the counter-protesters. “They’re trying to erase history.”

“They should study their history,” he added later. “They don’t even know the history of this country and they’re trying to take monuments down. Listen, whether we like it or not, this is what our history is.”

“To me, it’s just like going to New York City right now and taking down the monument of those who perished in 9/11,” he said. “It will come to that.

Yes, they're exactly the same. On one side you have monuments that are dedicated to treasonous figures who seceded from and declared war on the United States in an effort to preserve slavery, and on the other side you have a monument dedicated to the victims of a terrorist attack.

You know, this might make sense if the 9/11 memorial was dedicated to the hijackers.
