Title: Jeh Johnson: Removal of Confederate Statues a Matter of ‘Homeland Security’

Former Obama administration official Jeh Johnson said the removal of Confederate statues was a matter of "public safety and homeland security" on Sunday.

In the aftermath of deadly violence in Charlottesville, Va., when a man with white nationalist ties was arrested for ramming his car into a crowd of counter-protesters last week and killing a woman, Confederate monuments across the country have been taken down. The furor in Charlottesville began with a protest by white supremacists against the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee.

Johnson served as Secretary of Homeland Security under Obama, and he said on ABC's "This Week" that the monuments to Confederates were helping to rally white nationalists.

"What alarms so many of us from a security perspective is that so many of the statues, the Confederate monuments, are now, modern-day, becoming symbols and rallying points for white nationalism, for neo-Nazis, for the KKK, and this is most alarming," Johnson said. "We fought a world war against Naziism. The KKK reigned terror on African Americans for generations."

"I salute those in cities and states who are taking down a lot of these monuments for reasons of public safety and security," he added. "And that's not a a matter of political correctness. That's a matter of public safety and homeland security and doing what's right."

Host Martha Raddatz said she felt the Trump administration would call that a "slippery slope," referring to local Washington locations like Washington- Lee High School and Jefferson Davis Highway.

"Where should that stop?" Raddatz asked.

Johnson said those kinds of decisions should be made at the local level.

President Donald Trump slammed the removal of such monuments as "foolish" and for ripping apart the "history and culture of our great country."

What I want to know is when the Tan Klan is going to start agitating to have monuments dedicated to the serial whore-beater,thief,felon,and racist MLK Jr.

Not to mention have his name removed from all the schools where kids graduate without knowing how to read or write so they give their off-spring names like "Jeh".

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

Take down that statue of former Rep. Adam Clayton Powell, Jr.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_Clayton_Powell_Jr.

In 1967, a U.S. Congressional committee subpoenaed Yvette Diago, the former third wife of Powell Jr. and the mother of Adam Clayton Powell IV. They were investigating potential "theft of state funds" related to her having been on Powell Jr.'s payroll but doing no work. Yvette Diago admitted to the committee that she had been on the Congressional payroll of her former husband, Adam Clayton Powell Jr., from 1961 until 1967, although she had moved back to Puerto Rico in 1961. As reported by Time Magazine, Yvette Diago had continued living in Puerto Rico and "performed no work at all," yet was kept on the payroll. Her salary was increased to $20,578 and she was paid until January 1967, when she was exposed and fired.

Add the Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building. We can't have state office buildings named after corrupt politicians.

And Malcolm X has got to go.

And we must redo our money.

Washington must come off the one dollar bill. He was a slave owner until the day he died.

Jefferson must come off the two dollar bill. Another slave owner.

Hamilton isn't a dead president, and his wife (Elizabeth Schuyler) was from New York Dutch slave-holding stock. He must come off the ten dollar bill.

Jackson is on the twenty-dollar bill. He's gotta go. He was a genocidal racist.

Grant is on the fifty-dollar bill. Along with the monument, he has to come off the money. Slave owner, slave driver.

That degenerate Franklin, another not dead president, is on the C-note. Gotta go.

Abe Lincoln made numerous racist statements, defended a slave owner's right to his slaves in court, and very possibly rented a slave named Ruth Stanton in 1849 when she was fourteen years old. The only question seems to be whether Ruth Stanton was a slave or an indentured servant. Either way, he's on the five dollar bill and has to go as well.

FDR has to come off his coin as well. He said "I am very happy to take part in this unveiling of the statue of General Robert E. Lee. All over the United States we recognize him as a great leader of men, as a great general. But, also, all over the United States I believe that we recognize him as something much more important than that. We recognize Robert E. Lee as one of our greatest American Christians and one of our greatest American gentlemen." That is just offensive.

I agree with FDR. (Leave him on the dime.)

I was just getting in the Liberal spirit, justifying the obliteration of history so snowflakes can live in a great big safe spot where nothing offends their sensitive feelings. FDR was right, but was he insensitive?

Manzanar and Dresden...yeah, I'd say FDR was pretty damned insensitive. Appropriately so.
