"One, because I know this tends to be one of those Clickbait type stories. The Robert E. Lee statue came down at the Capitol building. In Washington. So the way this works, if you're unfamiliar is that all the states donate two statues to go into the Capitol building? And they're they're displayed. And then there's a committee in the capital that decides where to put them, basically, but the states they make these donations to where they are, well, one of the one of the statues donated by the state of Virginia Was that of Robert E. Lee. So it came down. Um And I know this is this is why I want to stay away from intends to be this Clickbait argument where we just get into some sort of same. You're erasing history. Well, you're a racist. Well, you know, just kind of goes back and forth on this stuff. And just to let you know where I land on this is I don't see any point in having a statue of Robert E. Lee anywhere. Don't want to celebrate the Confederacy at all. To me. They were treasonous individuals who look to break this country apart. I have no respect for what they did on while of course, it's ah piece of American history. I don't want to celebrate people for their for their sins. I don't want to do that. The same way that I don't want to put up a statue of Osama bin Laden because, well, it was a part of American history. Nope. Don't need to memorialize, uh, kamikaze pilots. Nope. Germany doesn't have a bunch of memorials to Hitler. There is one statue of Benedict Arnold in America. And remember Benedict Arnold was was an American revolutionary leader in hero before he flipped. There's a statue it's in New York. Off his boot. Just a statue of Benedict Arnold's boot. Because I think it was the battle of Saratoga, where he lost his his leg. Bottom half of his leg. There's a statue of him he was fighting for the he was fighting for the Americans at the time. We don't memorialize traders. Right. So that's where I land on this. Know what ends up happening is we start having arguments over Should we rename schools? Should we take down every statue of anybody has ever done anything wrong. I don't think that's necessarily the case, either. I don't think that we need tol. We need to kind of go through and say, you know who did somebody once? Uh Somebody wants cheat on their homework. Well, they can't be. It can't be a good person. No, I don't. I don't look at it that way. But I want to celebrate people in spite of their sins, not because of them. Robert E. Lee. We're not celebrating him is a great American hero. We're celebrating him because he was an anti American hero. Not a man to hero. He was an anti American hero. I don't want to celebrate them. Okay, so we celebrate people in spite of their sins, not because of them. Spider, their flaws, not because of them, all right? So that's that's my logic. That's how I fall on those things, okay? That's it. Statue of Robert E. Lee came down. And Senator elect Wendy Rogers. Who is going to be in Arizona senator starting next month. She said. It's just garbage. Oh, How could you take down statue of that great American Robert E. Lee. Really, she said about she tweeted something. Robert E. Lee was a great patriot and a leader. You're not just tearing him down. They're coming after us. They're coming after all of us get involved now you could be next. I mean, let me make a promise you Um If you don't turn your back on this country. Declare that you're turning your back on this country. I will not try to scare the statue down of you. Right? I won't do it. There were there were just some things. I disagree with many, many, many, many politicians. I believe that their outlook can be detrimental to the future of this country. And I go while I do not think we should do that. I think it's going to be very bad for this nation. But to assign a motivation to them as they hate America. Um, that makes me the bad guy. That makes me the person who was deserving of criticism. If I disagree with, you know, we talked about the three Arizona Um, congressman who voted against the bill. Hey, If I disagree with them, I'd better have a reason for disagreeing with them. Okay? And Disagree with them, not voting on the bill. I don't disagree with your logic for not voting on the bill. Any big says he doesn't want to run up the debt. For our grandchildren. I think that's a valid point. I absolutely think it's a valid point. If it were me, I would have voted for the bill anyway. And I would have looked for places where we could cut in the future. I would have looked for places where we could cut prior to this. But I know that relief is necessary now, But I understand his argument. I don't think that Andy Biggs is trying to kill Children by not voting for that bill That makes sense. Unfortunate..

"Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee. Some of those monuments have been toppled by protesters. Others have been taken down now by the city. All this action as well as violent standoffs between police and protesters has been captured by the camera of Regina Boone. She's a staff photographer for the Richmond Free Press, a black newspaper in the city. Her parents started in the 19 nineties and she joins us now. Good morning. Hi. Good morning. Thanks for having me Lulu. It's great to have you from your time in and around Richmond these days. What's the mood? It's intense. It has an exhaustive sort of feel to it. But then there's empowerment. There's exhilaration, then mixed, also with anger mixed with determination, so I can't just say one word. It's a mixed bad of emotions. I can say that it's fully alive and ready. These monuments coming down. Could you tell me what that signifies in your view? As a person who was raised in a household with my mom and my dad, Raymond Boone and Jean Boone, who Started the paper that I work for the Richmond free Press. Monuments have always been a part of our conversations since I was a child, growing up the early part of my life in Richmond that they were symbols of hate and symbols of white supremacy. So I've always looked at these statues as being quite evil on DH always heard in my household that they needed to come down. You have been out documenting these protests seeing this moment? Can you tell me about some of the people that you've been photographing and what you've experienced while you've been doing that Sure. I also just want to be clear that it's not just me photographing for our newspaper. I'm doing it along with my colleague Sandra Sellers who's been at the Richmond free Press for more than 20 years, and what we see are people who are angry for feta wanting change right now. Missing Children come out, and we love to photograph Children because we hope that when they see themselves whether it's on social media or in our newspaper that They see where they are in history. And one day later in life, they can see that they were a part of this change. So we're seeing a mixed group of people black white Latino next Asian Americans out on the streets together, and this kind of is a rare scene in Richmond. But I'm meeting people like I met a Richmond public school music teacher, and she had her cello out in front of the Robert E. Lee statue, and she's out there playing this classical music that just springs Chills to your bones, and she has a slide show of words explaining the pain she has felt as a black woman. And so as we see her as I saw her, and I locked her in with my camera I felt her pain. I could identify with it, Richie now Yeah. Is there a different kind of responsibility? Or is there a different Karan's that you look at this through Because you are working for a black newspaper in the city and because you are a black woman? So, Yeah, I definitely think so. I think there is a responsibility that we have as black women document in this movement because you know, oftentimes. Our stories are told by other people. Other people who don't look like us. Other people who are not breathing this story every day. Our narrative is oftentimes controlled by people. Who just don't get it and I get it. Sandra gets it. Our newsroom gets it. This is not a new story for us. People are finally catching up to what my dad was always preaching and always fighting for. You know, we've been saying this all along. It's our history. You return to Richmond from a very impressive career to work at the paper he founded serving the black community. You were gone for 17 years. What is being able to document this mean for you? I mean, it's really personal. You know, some days I'm out there and I'm actually brought to tears because I'm thinking about my father and I'm thinking about What he fought for every day, and I'm thinking how as a child as a teenager, sometimes I didn't fully get his anger. He just wanted a better world for blacks, but for everyone On DH. It breaks my heart that he's not here. But on the other hand, he prepared me for this moment. And I believe there are no coincidences that the timing for me coming thiss was meant to be. And he's what keeps me going. He's what keeps so many in Richmond going, I think because they knew his passion. He taught me everything that I know in terms of How to stand strong and how to document these moments and why it's so important to be on the front lines. Regina Boone is a staff photographer for the Richmond Free Press. Thank you very much. Thank you so much..

Ah, sod gold on no one to call you. I just think about like the idea of statues and some of them on horses, and I think about The song that you have created for us. Can you talk about any connection there might be to that and kind of what the inspiration was for the song. I first heard the music and then I kept thinking of this imagery of horsemen. Kind of like riding through the night. You think of horsemen kind of just like sweeping in and overtaking a town or a city and then to me that kind of like connected Tio. Spanish horsemen that first came to the aspect empire Because I was like the first time the Mexico people had ever seen horses and then I was also kind of drawing a connection between that and the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Right like this. This idea that the end of the world is goingto be brought onto us by horseman, which, in the case of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, it's death, Famine, War and Conquest.

"A Thomas Jefferson statue for Robert E. Lee statue they all need to come down and this is where American history is divided because George Washington was a slave owner you cannot take culture in one society fast forward a couple hundred years plug it in this was also a time when women weren't allowed to vote so there were I at all sides of the political aisle what we gonna do are we gonna wait until an erect monuments to people number one but number two if you read American history George Washington was one of the most adamant believers in the freedom of slaves but at the time what did you do if you released slaves where were they going to go and I'm not defending slavery slavery was a horrible thing in this country and a little bit more in American history and what you read more and more about it one of the things that happened during the the when they were having the constitutional convention they had such a hard time getting a constitution done we had just had this horrible war George Washington actually gone home after the war was over and they could not get a constitution written and they went and got general Washington Donald how many of you know the story of heard about the service of George Washington they wanted to make George Washington the king and he turned it down that's we we didn't do this for a king separation of powers was a big deal to the leadership we did not want to king George Washington they rode was house and they said we need you in Philadelphia we need your help we are not able to come to a resolution a constitution we need you to be there George Washington and and a very famous time in his life turned his back and said haven't I done enough for my country he shut the door in their face only to get up the next day or hours later and ride into Philadelphia to be there to continue his service to the country yes he was a slave owner but he was against slavery and there were many people that wanted slavery ended when the country was founded but there was too much division at the time and we could not allow the country to go back over the bridge I'm not making excuses I'm giving reasons I'm telling you what happened if you look through history and some of the personal things that people said they were slave owners and more the founders of this country they understood the contradiction that slavery was that we are going to have a nation that is run by the people and then we're going to have people that we don't list is full of people there were those in leadership in America early America that still thought slavery was the right thing to do obviously we had a civil war eventually over it and the right side on that story one the idea that we're going to tear down monuments is absurd first of all but let's talk about what we're dealing with right now you can force someone to change their words it's not going to change their heart you can force someone to change what they look at I think what NASCAR is doing symbolically by getting rid of the Confederate flag is the right thing to do and I grew up in the south but NASCAR making a statement as a business in America saying that is a symbol that we don't want to sow seed with our brand anymore is a is a smart thing to do but you're not going to change anybody's hearts by doing that and I'm not trying to be over dramatic when I say but if you change people's hearts their behavior naturally changes you can take a racist and you can force a racist to not use racist language in public that doesn't change the racist mind but if you can work on changing a racist minded heart they will naturally change their language so if the goal is I just don't want to see it and I just don't want to hear it then go ahead fight now about taking down take down the Washington Monument right take down the Jefferson memorial try to do those things keep cutting the heads off Christopher Columbus statues go ahead go ahead and where we're going to be in four weeks from right now is no closer to a resolution that we've ever been let's stop with the symbolism we have gotten to a point where symbolically both sides are willing to listen and here come the radical voices in it for anybody out there that's hearing this argument for the first time that we shouldn't have caught Columbus day it should be indigenous peoples day we should get rid of the Washington the Jefferson memorials we should get rid of them because they were slaves if you think this is the first time this argument is been going on for decades decades there is a lot to be explained you are never gonna symbolically change things and make real change happen it has never happened politically correct you look at the politically correct language we use now and I use the correct language because I don't want to be offensive I will ask questions so as not to offend I'm not trying to pander I want to get my point across without you thinking the words I'm using our offensive if you know that I will I don't use the N. word I think it I'd that's a horrible word I will never use that word it's in American literature going way back why would we sanitise that'd not explain that this used to be the cultural norm in America it's not anymore if you read what Dr Martin Luther king has written and he's written some brilliant books the the word he used to describe African American people was Negro that was the word in the nineteen sixties that everybody uses a descriptive term it went from there to Afro American and from there it went to African American and we gladly change with whatever the cultural time is to make sure we're not offensive but your heart has to change first or what you're doing is just to not get in a fight so is it that you just don't care what they think you just don't want to see it or hear it you think somehow if we tear down the Washington Monument of the Jefferson memorial you're stepping in a direction of ending slavery or ending that the people that thought slavery was a good idea you think the clan cares they don't you change people's hearts you will change people's minds you will change their.

The Mcstay Family Murder: Setting the Scene
"The mcstay family had recently moved into their new house on on a nice cul de sac in fallbrook California Nets. At the time they disappeared. They had relocated from a beachside apartment in San Clemente. Joey and summer next day had been making plans working on home renovations when they stopped responding to texts and phone calls on February Fourth Twenty ten Joseph was forty he owned and operated earth inspired products misses a business at designed installed water fountains. It had been. Joey's dream to be self employed Loyd in order for him to spend as much time as possible with his sons Johnny h four and Joseph Junior h three. Joey's summer was a licensed assist real estate agent. She taken some time off in order to be a stay at home mother. Yeah and to work on the house. 'cause there was a lot of work to be done there. They big cleanser this house. Stay Dead Joey and summer had each been married once before when they met and according to friends they fell in love quickly and they were just crazy about each other and quite happy. So let's go into summer. Joey's history is a bit just to get a better understanding of who they were as people and who they were as a couple before this all happened. So Joey's birth name was Joseph Allen Ashley. His Mother Susan married his biological logical father. Robert Lee right out of high school but the marriage just didn't last very long at all. Susan then met Patrick mcstay. Nineteen in seventy one and Patrick was quite happy to take over his. Joey's father he and Susan married in nineteen seventy two. They were married and and Patrick adopted Joey with Robert. Ashley's permission which I found pretty interesting and with this adoption Joe. His name was legally changed to Joseph. Brian mcstay then in nineteen seventy-three. Joey's brother Michael was born. And Joey was a doting big brother. Who really love to help out with Michael's care but unfortunately Patrick and citizens marriage didn't last long either and they divorced in nineteen seventy five and and they would continue to have some back and forth issues over the years? Although Susan remarried and maintained custody of Joey and Michael the two boys did continue to spend in time with their father Patrick and for a while in his teens joey went to live with his dad in Dallas Texas. So according to Patrick the father he was is very close with Joey. A very good relationship is consistent adopted kid right right Berkeley her very good relationship. Well I mean. He came in pretty early in. Joey's life so there wasn't a lot of you know arguing back and forth about anything not a lot of that. You're not my real father stuff through now. Joey met his first wife Heather in nineteen ninety and they got married in nineteen ninety two in nineteen ninety six. They had a son now. Al Joanne Heather lift in San Clemente near the beach. Had his father's pretty wealthy Yona jewelry store in Laguna beach but he really likes Joey and he helped give his daughter just an absolutely beautiful wedding and before he met and married Heather Joe. It had several jobs he worked as a waiter and bartender. He also started his own small business designing and selling products now later. He began designing small waterfalls and fountains in his garage. He borrowed a little bit of money from his father opened a shop which he called Naturally Dana Point and by late nineteen ninety six was quite successful. He had made over two hundred thousand dollars in sales then he brought his brother Michael and open naturally DP fountains with the least warehouse for the production. So he's starting to move up a little bit here. Yes very hard worker very motivated. But Heather enjoys marriage. Rich fell apart and he found out that heather was having an affair and she had become pregnant by her lover but still he kind of blamed himself at least in part are because he'd been working a lot so he wasn't spending much time with her. He tried to work things out even told heather that he would happily raise the new baby as his own But it was too late. Heather was already in love with this other guy and she decided on a divorce but apparently this was devastating to joey. He was still in love with heather so he was pretty heartbroken and depressed any moved in with his mom and according to her he went through months and months of depression. He and his brother Michael continued to run the fountain business though and eventually they got together with a computer expert named Dan. Kavanagh Dan and help them build a website so they could begin doing their business as earth inspired products online so people could go online and order fountains so this is really opened up things for them then. Joey did meet summer. That was in two thousand four. They were introduced by. Joey's friend who was named macgyver. So I don't remember. He had enough his parents liked the TV show. It's a strange name choices in it or yeah so summer was just breaking up with her longtime boyfriend. Vic and Joey and summer's relationship moved fast but she was worried about how vic was going to react to her being with someone a new so soon she didn't own a house with vic and had to go through the legalities of getting her name off of the property in the mortgage and getting some money out of that so summer was a bit eccentric and she had been known by more than one name so this would end up causing a lot of speculation after the family's family's disappearance like what was going on with her. She was born Virginia Lisa Aranda and had also been known as SUMMER MARTELLI SUMMER ARANDA RANDOM MARTELLI LISA Aranda and Lisa Martelli Summers mom raised her and her two siblings on her own as a single mom in both California and Chicago and according to summer's mother Martelli was the surname of Summers Stepdad. Now another thing that summer did that would lead some people to question things was that she was also known to have taken some years off her age when speaking to people. But there's no evidence that she used this new birth date on any legal documents family members including her sister. Heavens suggested that her name changes were just her own preference and it wasn't anything anything to avoid any legal entanglements. She was just the kind of person who wanted to make up her own name. She went to live in California and be named summer and she did did. She did it so summer gave birth to Joey's first son Johnny in two thousand five and in less than two years later Joseph Junior was born a summer had an aversion to hospitals and both boys were delivered at home shortly after Joseph. Juniors born Joe in summer got married and this is a small ceremony in Orange County. The summer side of the family didn't attend. She didn't seem very close to family. And this worry. Joey's mother so the night before the wedding summer had called her family s and not to come to the wedding and stole his mom. Susan was never quite sure awesome redundant no but it seems like. Joey knew why he wasn't questioning it. So you know there were issues but what family doesn't have issues really. Were your those issues. His issues right and these were a little extraordinary. I guess but who knows what was going on and it was a small second marriage. So maybe it wasn't a big deal. Having family. There is a bigger deal to some people than others where I would put that as a priority. I'd like they're where my family at my wedding. Of course right. Yeah but not all. My family came to my wedding. We'll important one stood. Oh okay well. According to a lot of people though summer was very jealous of Joe his first wife Joey and heather shared custody of their son Jona. Joey's friends friends and family said that summer was very caring Jona even though she wasn't always thrilled with heather. Summer did complained to her sister. Tracy that heather would barge barge into their house regularly. You know even walking in when Joey's in the shower kind of weird and she would drop off Jona without calling ahead and just kind of expect. Expect summer to Babysit so summer was trying to get along and she put up with it at first but eventually she told Joey that she was going to have to break up and leave if he didn't set some boundaries with the ex wife now to me that seems totally reasonable for those to me too yeah. I'm not just a working or drop off daycare right. No Yeah and you're not married to him anymore. So what are you walking into the House for is if you live here. Durham my house. Yeah Komo Yard. That's right so I totally get that. I mean it's territorial thing if nothing else plus. It's disrespectful very disrespectful. To summer summer and to summer and Joey's relationship maybe not the best thing for Jona to see either possibly not

"In Charlottesville Virginia the ostensible reason was to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee and and keep a group showed up to counter protest the mayor and the police were totally unprepared to deal with the violence that ensued tragically a young woman heather higher was run over and killed by a neo **** the press conference itself was raucous the media was antagonistic the president was combative out of it all one phrase eclipse the thousands of words exchanged the media reported that president trump described neo **** as very fine people only he didn't in fact he didn't even hint at it just the opposite he condemned the neo **** in no uncertain terms so then who were the fine people he mentioned the answer he was referring to another group of Charlottesville demonstrators who came out that weekend protesters who wanted the Robert E. Lee stature removed and protesters who wanted to keep the statute and restore the park's original name this is what president trump said about those peaceful protesters you also had some very fine people on both sides you had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of it to them a very very important statute and the renaming of a park from Robert de lead to another name a few moments later in case there would be any misunderstanding he makes his meaning even more explicit I'm not talking about the neo **** and the white nationalists they should be condemned totally lets you have any doubts that good people were in Charlottesville to protest the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue The New York Times confirmed it in a story they published the next day August sixteenth good people can go to Charlottesville said Michelle Percy a night shift worker at a Wichita Kansas retirement home who drove all night with a conservative group that opposed the plan removal of a statue of the Confederate general Robert E. Lee after listening to Mr trump on Tuesday she said it was as if he had channeled her and her friends who had no interest in standing with **** or white supremacists there's another simple test that we can employ to prove that the president was not referring to the neo **** as fine people it's so obvious it's painful to mention the president's daughter and son in law are orthodox Jews his grandchildren are Jewish and that's still not enough to convince you how about this does anyone believe the Donald Trump thinks they're a good anti for the leftist dogs who are counter protest in the neo **** thugs after all if those two groups were the only ones involved and there were fine people on both sides that means the president believed that they were fine and T. for people even MSNBC should have found that hard to swallow again the very fine people on both sides president trump described at the press conference with the people who wanted to remove the Robert E. Lee statue and the people who wanted to keep it both of these groups were nonviolent protesters find people with very different ideological views the scandal of Charlottesville is not what president trump said about neo **** it's what the media said president trump said about neo **** it's a scandal because news reporting is supposed to be about gathering facts not promoting an agenda in Charlottesville they got it exactly backwards we have been living with the consequences ever since plainly put ABC CBS NBC NPR The New York Times The Washington Post and the others spread a malicious lie that has poisoned our national dialogue they should apologize to the American people for what they have done don't hold your breath actually I have a better idea let out a big sigh of relief because now you know the truth I'm Steve Cortez CNN political commentator and columnist for real clear politics for Prager university now when he talks about the apologies you'll have to go back a few hours to congressman Tim right because he repeated the same line it's a damnable lie and my hunch is they know it they know it they know the present I or maybe they don't I don't know I can't get into somebody's heart but they're repeating a lot and the reason it's important is because that lie has poisoned the American dialogue Dennis Prager himself rights over town hall dot com that the video you just heard and saw presented by a CNN political commentator name Steve's Steve Cortez Dennis described him as a voice of courage in the herd known as the mainstream American media Dennis says at this moment of Prager use three hundred and twenty five videos Cortez's the Charlottesville lie is the one I most want Americans to watch the harm that the media and others I'm talking to you congressman Tim Ryan have done and continue to do to this country by charging the president with praising **** and other white supremacist is incalculable I hate the guy if I thought he praised white supremacist I would hate the guy if I thought he praised me or not he prays skinheads as Dennis points out it's only serve to inflame and divide Americans the tens of millions who believe the lie in the tens of millions who know the truth I think I'm gonna play that every hour today guys I do I just think everybody has to here and I want I don't want anybody who listens to the Mike Gallagher show not to hear the Prager you video which is brilliant and it's about time the Charlottesville live and don't kid yourself it's one of many that they perpetuate about this American president where the relief factor dot com studios twelve minutes before the hour let's get your reaction what you just heard on the Prager you video what is your reaction to it eight hundred six five five Mike where the really factor dot com studio some raking news Nobel Prize winning author Toni Morrison has died some sad news the first black woman to receive the Nobel literature prize awarded in nineteen ninety three her novel beloved in which a mother makes a tragic.
"robert e. lee" Discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show
"I the the full story I grew up near Washington or near Robert E Lee's boyhood home. I live about seventy feet from it. Now, I went to Washington Lee high school at West Point. I lived in liba Rex I then served more than thirty years as an army officer as did Robert E Lee, so not only did I grew up in shadow. I followed his footsteps to my life, and and I tried to emulate it because he was the Pitta me of a gentleman of a courageous effective brilliant leader. And so when I was a Lieutenant my wife, and I had zero money. My wife was army Brad to she bought me. A painting of Robert leeann his confederate general sheen for and it wasn't really even a painting. It was a a print with clear acrylic paint over it twenty five bucks framed. But in those days that was a big chunk out of our monthly budget. And I hung it in our quarters for the next forty years wherever we lived. And I did it because I wanted to remind me of what I believed in who I believed in. But I also when people came to my house, I was proud to have them go. Wow. Look, there's a picture of a truly admirable person. And that's who stand mcchrystal identifies with. I knew I could never be Robert E Lee he was too perfect. But he was sort of a beacon you could move towards. Well, after Charlottesville in two thousand seventeen I remember, my wife, and it came to me, and she says, I think you need to get rid of the picture, and I immediately pushed back I said, and you gave it to me. I could never do that. She says now. I I don't think you should have it in the house. I think it's communicating something you don't believe in. And I said, no, he's just a soldier. He's non-political. He's been dead one hundred and fifty years, and she said, that's what you think. But people in our house may think that you are trying to signal that you believe in white supremacy and thinks she knows I'm post to and we went about a month with this conversation slash arguments slash freshly match after about a month. I came to the conclusion she was right and on a Sunday morning. I took down the picture took it to the garage or trashcans and threw it away. It was not an unemotional event. And it's also the time we started writing the book leaders, and we decided we would write a chapter on Robert E Lee swipe really studied him in a way, I never had before I'd studied his campaigns in its history. But I studied him as a man who in eighteen sixty one after thirty two years in the military. After swearing an oath to the United States of America the exact same place. I had done it many years later, he then turned on his nation, and he decides to join the confederacy and spent the next four years trying to destroy the United States for the maintenance of slavery, the greatest evil in American history. And he did it not without much reflection. I mean, people think he just automatically went south. That was not true. He went through quite a Plutarch in moment studying and contemplating. But ultimately he made the decision to go first with Virginia to the south. And I think he got it wrong. I think it's the opposite decision that his role model George Washington would have done, and it's interesting because when I look at that, I think he got it completely wrong. But I don't think Robert E Lee is completely evil. They're still much about Robert E Lee, I admire they're still many of the things about him. Him that I would like to emulate but now instead of him being. Two-dimensional painting or a big statue. That is just perfection personified. Nice seem as human being as soon as a flawed, man. He did a lot of things. Well, and he did something spectacularly wrong that makes him human and makes him like you are flawed. And so I can think about him now not as an icon.
