The Left’s Impulse To Tear Down Confederate Statues Is Like Mao’s Cultural Revolution

'These are tactics that are well-known. You start by tearing down statues and burning books, and eventually you go after people.'
Federalist senior correspondent John Daniel Davidson joined Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to explain why the Left’s impulse to tear down Confederate monuments is totalitarian. Davidson noted that leftists calling for the destruction of statues memorializing Confederate figures has been going on for quite some time.
“I remember two years ago we had the 150th anniversary of the Confederate surrender and you had people in the mainstream media at that time calling for the desecration of Confederate graves,” Davidson said. “Not just tearing down statues but digging up remains, removing them. You know, bulldozing over cemeteries — and this iconoclastic impulse is native to the Left. This is what China’s cultural revolution was all about. If you want to see where tearing down statues by mobs will get you, look at pictures of China’s cultural revolution where they tore down statues, temples.”
