Potential Biden VP Pick Open to Tearing Down Washington Statues
Of course she is. Duckworth is a potential Biden VP pick and she's willing to contemplate the destruction of American history.
Show host Dana Bash asked Duckworth: "Senator, I know that you support change in the name of military bases named after Confederate leaders, but there are leaders like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson who were slave owners. And some people are demanding their monuments come down, too. In your view, where does it end? Should statues, for example, of George Washington come down?"
Bash then reiterated her question, and asked if removing statues of Washington is a "good idea."
"I think we should listen to everybody," Duckworth responded. "I think we should listen to the argument there, but remember that the president at Mount Rushmore was standing on ground that was stolen from Native Americans who had actually been given that land during a treaty."
Duckworth is a radical leftist who got her position by repeatedly playing the victim.
So of course she's okay spewing this week's talking points about Russian bounties and treason, while attacking the existence of Mount Rushmore. And the same media which pushes its own talking points, calling President Trump's Mount Rushmore speech divisive, is perfectly happy to push the destruction of Mount Rushmore and America.
