House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) recently jumped on the leftist activist bandwagon and has now demanded that nearly a dozen statues of Confederate generals be removed from Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol building.
Yet, Breitbart noted that Pelosi has been remarkably silent about the fact that her father, former Baltimore Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., had overseen and delivered remarks at a dedication ceremony in 1948 for a massive statue honoring Confederate Gens. Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.
In that ceremony, Pelosi’s father had heralded the “generalship and military science displayed” by both Jackson and Lee in the Civil War and urged all Americans to “look for inspiration” from both of those Confederate heroes.
Mayor D’Alesandro further noted that Jackson and Lee had set the example for how to be “resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions” as well as to “remain steadfast in our determination to preserve freedom, not only for ourselves, but for other liberty-loving nations who are striving to preserve their national unity as free nations.”
It will be interesting to see if any mainstream media reporters decide to ask Pelosi about the actions and words of her father 72 years ago.
