White Supremacists Are Angry That Conservatives Didn’t Support Them After ‘Unite The Right’ Rally – Angry White Men

Peinovich cited the example of a statue of Teddy Roosevelt outside of New York City’s Museum of Natural History. Peinovich told his co-hosts that the statue depicts “Teddy Roosevelt on a horse, flanked on either side by like a Red Indian and then like a Negro” in “poses of submission to him.” He also called it a “blatant and open display of white supremacy.”

He said that conservatives shouldn’t pretend such monuments aren’t racist, but instead acknowledge that they are and defend them anyway. He then brought up the 1969 song “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” by The Band. “The song is actually about sympathy for the Confederate cause, for the Confederate people, and let’s just acknowledge that and be like okay with it.”

“It’s so irritating,” he continued. “‘No that statue isn’t white supremacy.’ Oh, the statue of a white man on a horse with like a Negro and an Indian bending to him, that’s not a symbol of white supremacy? Get the fuck outta here.”
