Fox News Channel’s “Watters’ World” host Jesse Watters delivered a monologue in the wake of the race riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, where the violent antifa group protested white supremacists by ripping down statues of Confederate generals.
He suggested the left wants the monuments removed to erase from history the fact that the Democratic Party enslaved black people.
President Donald Trump warned that it was only a matter of time before the Left’s war on Confederate monuments moved on to the Founding Fathers, asking if George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were next.
“Destroying any historical monument is what the Taliban does, not American citizens,” Watters stated. “All of these Confederate war heroes were Democrats. Democrats were the party of slavery. Maybe the left wants to tear down the statues, so the country forgets the Democratic Party enslaved black people.”
