A very vocal and liberal friend of mine, who happens to be a staunch Bernie supporter and worked for the local Democrat party as a volunteer, wanted to drag me into a conversation about the Confederate statues.
She prefaced it by saying, “You’re a Republican and a conservative, which is almost alt-right. Do you think we should keep those racists monuments to slavery?”
“I’m all for the Democrats trying to rewrite their history, especially if it means tearing down the monuments they built.”
She was silent for a whole ten seconds before she uttered.. “Uhhh..” and walked away.
