Candidate for VA Governor Fighting to Save American History from the Left!

Ed Gillespie, a Republican who is currently a candidate for the governor of Virginia, says he supports preserving our Confederate monuments and saving our nation’s history.

As the militant left and violent Alt-Left try to erase everything about America’s past, Gillespie is determined to fight them.

He’s helping to promote a petition which will oppose removing Confederate monuments and statues in Virginia, and it’s resonating well with the voters.

“I think we should keep them up,” said Gillespie, adding, “We should teach history- NOT erase it.”

Thankfully, there are some politicians who still have their wits about them, as a large majority of the establishment elite “Republicans” have fallen all over themselves to “virtue signal” against Confederate statues, in a disgusting effort to appease the Alt-Left.

From The Hill

Ed Gillespie, the Republican candidate for governor of Virginia, is backing a petition that opposes the removal of Virginia’s Confederate statues and monuments.

In an email to supporters Tuesday, Gillespie cast efforts to remove Confederate statues from public land as an attempt to erase history.

“My opponent, Democratic Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam has promised to do everything he can to remove Virginia’s Confederate monuments and statues if he is elected governor,” Gillespie said in the email, referring to Democratic nominee Ralph Northam.

“I think we should keep them up,” he added. “We should teach history — NOT erase it.”

Gillespie’s support for the petition comes weeks after fatal violence at a protest against removing a Confederate statue in Charlottesville, Va., where one woman was killed after a car was driven into a crowd of counterprotesters. An Ohio man with ties to white supremacist groups in Charlottesville protesting the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee has been charged with murder in the case.

Both Gillespie and Northam have said that the decision to keep or remove Confederate statues should be made at the local level.

But Gillespie, a former chairman of the Republican National Committee, has said that he ultimately opposes moving the statues, while Northam has advocated for their removal.

Earlier this year, Gillespie fended off claims by his primary opponent, who made support for Confederate monuments a centerpiece of his campaign, that he wanted to remove the statues.

A century-old state law bars local governments from taking down or interfering with monuments or memorials dedicated to veterans of war, though some state lawmakers support changing that law to give more power to local jurisdictions.
