Steyn Blasts Chelsea Clinton: 'If the Confederacy is 'Lucifer', Its Church is the Dem Party'
Mark Steyn criticized former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton for what he saw as hypocrisy in her objection to Confederate monuments.
Clinton appeared to compare keeping statues erected of Confederates and slaveowners like Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson to a Christian church featuring a Lucifer statue.
The story of Lucifer-who rebelled against God-is part of many Christians' traditions. I've never been in a church with a Lucifer statue.

She said that Lucifer "rebelled against God," but unlike in the formerly-rebellious South, "I've never been in a church with a Lucifer statue."
"I don't think she's very sound on the theology or the history," Steyn said.
"If the Confederacy is Satanic, the church... of Satan is the Democratic Party," he said.
"The Democrats were the biggest institutional supporters of slavery on the planet in the 19th Century. And, they're the only ones to have survived into the 21st Century."
Steyn said Clinton herself was being even further hypocritical because her own father "presided" over the funeral of a former "exalted cyclops" of the KKK: Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.).
He said that, using Clinton's analogy, Byrd would be considered a "Satanic archbishop."
Steyn said that if someone "lands in West Virginia," they could not avoid running into monuments, highways, transit hubs and public areas named for Byrd.
As a young adult, Byrd was a leader in the Klan in the Raleigh County, W.V. area, but later renounced the organization.
