Letter to the editor

To the editor,

In its frenzy to nullify American History, the Left has levelled several Confederate statues. Especially provocative to those who retain some affection for the Antebellum South, this iconoclasm is defended on the Left as erasing memories offensive to our black brothers. Feigning surprise at the sudden reappearance of sheets in Charlottesville, the Leftists would have us believe they never meant to incite the Radical Right . On the contrary, it seems to have been a deliberate challenge to the Right and the KKK, reenergizing that otherwise dormant group. In an astonishing display of ignorance, someone on the Left attacked a statue of Lincoln. (There are many atheists on the Left; is religious iconoclasm on the way in America?)
