Hey, just add blacks – who are in every way better – on top of white confederate statues. Michael Jordan doing a dunk on Jefferson Davis.
Roy Wood Jr gets to the nub of Trump’s slippery slope argument that if we take down Robert E Lee next we will be taking down statues of Washington and Jefferson.
Washington and Jefferson were known for many things, most of them great things and were big winners. On the other hand Robert E Lee was known for only two things, treason and slavery and was a big loser.
Daily Show Hasan Minhag has a different idea to solve the confederate statue problem, take all statues down, or what 2 billion Muslims have done for the past 1500 years or so. Sharia Law! But wait… OMG… The Second Commandment!
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am o jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of then that hate me; and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.’ Exod 20: 4-6.
The Second Commandment has always been my favorite, remember this is one of the commandments Evangelical Christians want chiseled onto to our court houses. God usurping justice to put the sins of the fathers upon the children for three generations. Sharia Law.
Our good God hates statues just as much as their bad God does. In fact a big part of the reformation was the end of all that Catholic statue business, protestants have no statues in their churches the same as Muslims. Even icons and pictures are frowned upon. Why is that?
