Former Arkansas governor: No reason to stop protecting Confederate statues

Posted by admin

The former Arkansas governor, who served in the George W. Bush administration, has weighed in on a Confederate monument in his home state, saying the monuments were designed to erase the legacy of slavery and should be protected.

In an op-ed published Thursday in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, former Arkansas Gov.

Mike Huckabee said the statue on the University of Arkansas campus in Fayetteville should be removed.

Huckabee, who ran against Trump for the GOP presidential nomination last year, argued the statue had “a history of slavery” and “a long and honorable history” of protecting the institution of slavery.

He said the city of Fayette, a state where slavery was still practiced, should decide whether to take down the statue.

The university had already voted to remove the statue earlier this year, but the university and Fayette City Council had to agree to a compromise after protesters and some faculty members complained that removing the monument would not be politically feasible.

The statue is located in front of the building that houses the campus’s history center.

The former governor said removing the statue was “not the right thing to do,” and he cited concerns about how it would affect people’s views of Confederate history and heritage.

The monument is in front the building where the history center is located.

Huckabee’s op-eds came after other Republicans and other prominent figures took to Twitter on Thursday to call for the removal of Confederate statues in their states.

Louisiana Gov.

John Bel Edwards tweeted that he had sent a letter to the city council of New Orleans requesting that it remove the Confederate monument, and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas tweeted that it was time to “move past” the monuments.

Huckabee also tweeted that the statues should be taken down.

Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee, on Friday praised Trump’s stance on Confederate monuments, saying he is proud to be a supporter of the people who fought to keep those monuments up.

“When you say you are against slavery, you are not a slave owner,” Trump said during a campaign event in Wisconsin.

“You are a slaveholder.

You are not slave owners.”

Pence, who is running for vice president, has not weighed in, but he told a news conference on Thursday that the Confederate statues should not be removed because they represent a historical legacy.

“We have to remember, we have a long history of people who have lived here and fought for the institution,” Pence said.

“They deserve to be remembered.”
