Dinesh D’Souza on the hidden history Democrats want to ignore
There’s no reason for Charlottesville, Virginia, and other Southern cities to remove statues like that of Robert E. Lee as long as racist Democrats continue to be honored throughout the country, contends Dinesh D’Souza, author of the sensational historical expose “The Big Lie: Exposing The Nazi Roots Of The Far Left.”
D’Souza blasted the national media and Charlottesville officials for creating a disastrous conflict based on a lie.
“Let’s start with the fact this whole thing was kicked off because of an attempt to take down a monument to Robert E. Lee,” D’Souza told WND. “Here’s the irony: Robert E. Lee was the most decorated soldier in the U.S. Army. He was a man of unimpeachable integrity. Lincoln offered him command of the Union Army, but Lee refused only because his loyalty was to Virginia. Lee opposed both secession and slavery.
“And yet to the historically illiterate left, a man who opposed both slavery and secession has come to symbolize both slavery and secession.”

D’Souza said the controversy is a massive attempt at historical misdirection.
Instead of truthfully confronting American history, D’Souza alleges the left-wing media and the Democratic Party are trying to pin the blame for slavery and racism on those who do not deserve it.
