Lee is no different *from Washington
Israel has to go soft on fucking NAZIS because of how fucking dumb this country is.

A personal lawyer to President Donald Trump forwarded an email comparing Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee to founding US President George Washington, and saying that the activist movement Black Lives Matter "has been totally infiltrated by terrorist groups," The New York Times reported Wednesday evening.

The email, with the subject line "The Information that Validates President Trump on Charlottesville," was forwarded by Trump lawyer John Dowd to conservative journalists, government officials and friends, the Times reported, citing a copy of the email that was provided to them by one of its recipients.

Dowd, a well-known DC-based attorney, joined Trump's personal legal team in June.

On Washington and Lee, the email argues that "both owned slaves," "both rebelled against the ruling government," "both men's battle tactics are still taught at West Point," "both were great men, great Americans and great commanders" and "both saved America."

"There literally is no difference between the two men," the email says, according to The Times. "You cannot be against General Lee and be for General Washington."

what a flailing shithead
i agree that we should take down monuments to slave-owning founders tho tbh
Hahahaha ... the Ministry of Truth is effective!
Not from any ministry of truth, from your links and their own words.

But it's not surprising you support Nazis and white nationalists and antisemitism.
Beat Up Piece of Shit is just another way of saying "Confederacy!"

I doubt this will get traction with Republicans, but at least it is being discussed.  Trump's mental state is a worldwide threat, not just a concern for the US under the 25th Amendment.

Alternatively, you have a poor grasp of politics in general, very little knowledge of history, and therefore lack sensible filters when it comes to judging information from news sources.

You could, of course, fix that problem by reading enough background sources to know when you should take a source with more than a grain of salt, but you won't, because if you like it, it must be true.

Dave, this is how the Protocols of Zion became a believed and liked source for people who organised pogroms and ethnic cleansings.
