Watters: Destroying Historical Monuments Is What the Taliban Does
Jesse Watters reminded Americans that destroying monuments to history is a habit of the Taliban, not American citizens.
In the wake of the race riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, the violent antifa group protested white supremacists by ripping down statues of Confederate generals. A bust of Abraham Lincoln was also defaced, as well as other monuments.
President Trump denounced the racists but asked where antifa's dismantling ends and whether it will include revered founding fathers like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.
Watters also reminded that the Confederate war heroes were Democrats, many of whom are now calling for the statues' removal.
"Maybe the left wants to tear down these statues so the country forgets that the Democratic party enslaved black people," he said. "But I actually think many on the left want to destroy any monument of revered historical American leaders."
