White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s comments in which he called Confederate General Robert E. Lee “an honorable man.”
In an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham Monday evening, Kelly praised Lee and equated the cause of the Civil War to a “lack of an ability to compromise” between the North and the South.
“I would tell you that Robert E. Lee was an honorable man,” Kelly said in the interview. “He was a man that gave up his country to fight for his state, which 150 years ago was more important than country. It was always loyalty to state first back in those days. Now it’s different today. But the lack of an ability to compromise led to the Civil War, and men and women of good faith on both sides made their stand where their conscience had them make their stand.”
What we are seeing is the ‘normalization’ of racism, bigotry, sexism, xenophobia, the KKK, Confederate flags and all things that are Anti American. Welcome to the fascist nation of AmeriKKKa.
