Would the Jefferson Memorial get to stay? Pete Buttigieg wants buildings, events renamed

You know, this all goes back to the myth that President Trump called neo-Nazis “very fine people.” He specifically condemned the neo-Nazis in a statement; the fine people on both sides were those arguing for and against removing Confederate statues and memorials. Trump feared it was a slippery slope; if General Robert E. Lee were “disappeared,” what about Jefferson or Washington? Where did it end? It was a valid question.

Somehow that question has reached Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg, who told an audience he favors removing Thomas Jefferson’s name from events and buildings … but not history books. But really, what about the Jefferson Memorial? Do we tear down the statue and rename the building?

The New York Post reports:

“There’s a lot, of course, to admire in his thinking and his philosophy,” Buttigieg said of the author of the Declaration of Independence and the nation’s third president.

“But then again, if you plunge into his writings, especially the ‘Notes on the State of Virginia,’ you know that he knew slavery was wrong. And yet he did it,” he explained.

“There’s a lot to admire in his thinking and his philosophy,” said Buttigieg of the slave-owning president. So, would he say there were fine people on both sides of the argument?
