93-Year-Old Robert E. Lee Statue to be Removed from Virginia Park


Political correctness has claimed another victim. This week, another Robert E. Lee Statue has been slated for removal.

The City of Charlottesville will remove a 93-year-old statue of Civil War general Robert E. Lee from a city park named for Lee. Charlottesville City Council also voted Monday to rename the park that sits on the Virginia Civil War Trails.

Monday night’s 3-2 vote came after months of debate.

The swing vote, cast by Councilman Bob Fenwick, said he delayed his decision to weigh things like the cost of removing the statue and the impact it has had on the community.

The cost for this political correct move? $300,000. That's a steep price to pay for the erasure of history, but that seems to be the goal of many on the left. They want to wipe out any thing or person that doesn't align with their own liberal agenda — even if that person was born in 1862.
