I am curious about the recent efforts of the extreme political “left” to destroy remnants of our nation’s history by tearing down statues and other pieces of our history. Let’s see now. In our collective righteous indignation, weren’t we recently condemning the Islamic State (ISIS) for destroying historical monumental remnants of civilization’s birth in Hatra and Nimrod as well as other locations? Apparently the irrational destruction of history is not the purview of Islamic extremists.
