Robert E Lee and Donald J Trump: Two monuments to white supremacy were removed this year –

2 min read

This is an opinion cartoon.

When the Robert E. Lee statue came down in Richmond, Virginia, last week it was the second monument to lies and white supremacy to be removed this year. The first one officially left Washington, D.C., on January 20 after losing an election. The Lost Cause and Trump’s Big Lie are kindred mythical creatures that belong in the same dumpster – er, resting place.

I borrowed this tweet from political commentator and humorist John Fugelsang for today’s cartoon:

“Monument to white supremacy that was removed mourns monument to white supremacy that was removed.”@johnfugelsang

Fugelsang’s tweet was in response to this story from The Hill: Trump rips removal of Robert E. Lee statue: ‘Complete desecration’

Virginia author, journalist and historian, Coy Barefoot, also posted a passionate Facebook essay about the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue and the ties between the Lost Cause and Trump’s Big Lie.
