Statues of Jefferson and Washington and Local Decisions

shitgibbon asked if statues of Jefferson and Washington are coming down next. Is this just more proof of his dementia?

Jefferson and Washington were not traitors to the United States. Confederate soldiers were. Why in hell would we want to erect statues to those who took up arms against the US? Way to change the subject there, orange boy.

As for leaving it up to the local jurisdiction to decide when to take a statue down, Joy just said that it is exactly what Charlottesville did. The city decided to take the statue down and a bunch of racist outsiders descended to protest it. So much for the WH squatter's respect of a local decision.
