Not only ridiculous leftists, but historically ignorant.
DUNN, N.C. (WNCN) — The controversy surrounding Confederate monuments has resulted in the vandalism of statues across the South.
“Never even thought it would affect us in any way at all,” said Mark Johnson, Curator of the General William C. Lee Airborne Museum in Dunn.
Johnson thought for sure a statue of General William C. Lee would be safe from the chaos.
“This is a hometown grown boy here that turned out to be an international hero of World War II so to come and try to destroy his statue is just an insult to everybody,” said Johnson.
Police say someone doused the statue in some kind of a flammable liquid and set it on fire.
“I think it was a big mistake,” said Johnson. “Why would you do something like this? It really just irritates people.”
Johnson thinks the vandals wanted to make a statement about slavery and racism and he thinks the vandals could use a history lesson.
