A Fox News guest accused liberals of trying to “destroy America” by removing monuments to the Confederate government and troops who fought a war to literally destroy the United States.
Former Secret Service agent and three-time failed Republican candidate Dan Bongino appeared Wednesday morning on “Fox & Friends,” where he argued memorials honoring Confederate history also honored slaves and black Americans who suffered under discriminatory laws.
“We’re headed where we’ve always been headed with the left,” Bongino said. “You know, guys, they have nothing. They’re married to this idea that they have to destroy America as we know it right now.”
“They have to get people obsessed with the idea that our scarred history — by the way, a scarred history of every country on Earth, with slavery or Jim Crow — granted epic human tragedies,” he continued. “But that our scarred history is the marker of who we are — not that we’ve overcome these things and given people unprecedented levels of prosperity. So they have to distract people and keep them constantly outraged in this 24/7 anger campaign. It’s the only way to motivate liberal voters.”
