If you could choose the replacement for the Robert E. Lee statue in the capital of Richmond. Who would it be? Well if Tim Kaine had his way, the choice is simple. The Senator from Virginia thinks Lee’s statue should be replaced with Pocahontas.
“Why wouldn’t you think about Pocahontas?… “We wouldn’t even be here.”
This is only the beginning, next our politicians will be trying to change American currency for the simple sake of “diversity”. O wait, that’s right, Andrew Jackson is going to be replaced with Harriet Tubman in the near future.

The bills will be unveiled in 2020 on the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote. Lew said the new notes will go into circulation as fast as possible after that.
I wonder if Tim Kaine realizes that Cherokee Indians fought for the Confederacy and absolutely hated the North? After all, the Confederacy never ordered the removal of Native Americans, that only ever occurred under a Union flag.
Cherokee Indians fought for the Confederacy
Dedicated September 29, 1935.
“The dedication ceremony began with an “Assembly Call” from a Boy Scout bugler in front of the reservation Council House. U.D.C district director Mrs. Preston Thomas of Asheville introduced the principal speaker Mrs. E.L. McKee of Sylva. Mrs. McKee “stressed the need of southern history being perpetuated and eulogized the Indian soldiers of the Confederacy.”
Mrs. W.A. Hyatt of Waynesville presented the monument to Dr. Howard Fought the reservation superintendent who accepted the monument as representative of the government and to Chief Jarret Blythe who accepted on behalf of the Cherokee. John F. Hodges, Jr. grandson of Colonel Thomas and John Tatum Ellis then removed the Confederate battle flag that veiled the memorial.
After a salute to the Confederate flag led by Mrs. E.E. McDowell of the Fanny Patton Chapter, U.D.C. the Indians sang “America” and “Beulah Land” in their native language. Several hundred were in attendance.”
