Confederate monuments threaten ‘homeland security’

August 21, 2017

Former Obama “Homeland Security” Secretary Jeh Johnson is applauding U.S. cities and states that are demanding the removal of Confederate statues and memorials because he believes they are a threat to “homeland security.”

During an appearance on “This Week,” Johnson embraced the elimination of history.

 

“What alarms so many of us from a security perspective is that so many of the statues, the Confederate monuments are now modern day becoming symbols and rallying points for white nationalism, for neo-Nazis, for the KKK, and this is most alarming,” Johnson told Martha Raddatz.

“We fought a world war against Nazism,” he said. “The KKK reined terror on African-Americans for generations.

“And so a number of Americans, rightly, Republican and Democrat are very concerned and very alarmed and I salute those in cities and states who are taking down a lot of these monuments for reasons of public safety and security,” Johnson said.

“And that’s not a matter of political correctness, it’s a matter of public safety and homeland security,” he added.
