Good Riddance to Russell Moore, Not R.E. Lee

Last week, Virginia removed the statue of Robert E. Lee, a national historic landmark that stood for over a century in Richmond. The same statue Douglas S. Freeman saluted every day while he was working on his monumental study of the man.

“New Virginia” doesn’t deserve Lee.

This was destined to happen, particularly since some “conservatives” have joined the chorus for taking down Confederate monuments.

Victor Davis Hanson, for example, may decry cancel culture now, but he has been one of the biggest anti-Southern cheerleaders in “conservative inc.”

You also have religious “leaders” like Russell Moore who think this was the right move.

With “friends” like these, who needs enemies.

These people need to be ignored. They are worse than woke cancel culture warriors on the left because they should know better.

But they make good podcast fodder. I talk about Moore and the Lee statue in episode 511 of The Brion McClanahan Show.
