White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is being attacked by the anti-White Left in the media for comments praising Confederate General Robert E. Lee, saying that good men fought on both sides in Abraham Lincoln’s war against Dixie and that the war was caused by a lack of compromise – comments which would have been completely mainstream a generation or two ago before the country was flooded with non-White immigrants and the culture was shifted far to the Left. The New York Times reports:
Christina Wilkie, a reporter for CNBC, used Twitter to live-blog Monday’s interview, on the Fox News program “The Ingraham Angle.” Her tweet quoting Mr. Kelly’s “lack of an ability to compromise” statement spread quickly.
The reaction was swift and unforgiving, with many commenters ridiculing Mr. Kelly for suggesting that slavery was an issue on which a compromise could or should have been reached.
Within less than two hours, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s daughter Bernice King had weighed in on Mr. Kelly’s description of Robert E. Lee as “honorable,” calling his comments “irresponsible” and “dangerous”and criticizing him for making “fighting to maintain slavery sound courageous.”
On Tuesday, the White House did not back down. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the press secretary, said there was “pretty strong consensus” among people from “the left, the right, the North and the South” that a failure to compromise contributed to the war.
The article goes to tell how the Left is outraged by Kelly’s remarks, making their disdain for Southerners open for all to see.
