An Ohio City Just Responded To The Charlottesville Controversy In A Bold Way

0


In the wake of Trump’s off the rails, impromptu press conference yesterday in which he again failed to condemn literal white supremacists and neo-Nazis at Saturday’s rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, the city of Franklin, Ohio has duly ordered the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

This decision comes on the heels of the City of Baltimore’s move to remove all four of its Confederate statues amid public outcry. On Monday, protestors made national headlines by toppling a Confederate monument in Durham, North Carolina.

A slew of cities are now facing increased pressure to remove Confederate monuments instead of risking the tragic events like those that occurred in Charlottesville last weekend during which 32-year-old Heather Heyer was killed by a neo-Nazi who drove his car into a crowd of counterprotestors.
