Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene retains making information for all the unsuitable causes. This time, it’s due to a video resurfaced by Punchbowl News’s Jake Sherman that exhibits Greene talking earlier than a committee in her dwelling district. The future congresswoman mentioned within the video from June of 2020 that she can be against taking down Hitler statues, if such statues existed. Greene instructed the committee: “whether I see a statue that may be something that I would fully disagree with like Adolf Hitler, maybe a statue of Satan himself, I would not want to say take it down. But again, it’s so I could tell my children and teach others about who these people are, what they did, and what they may be about.” These statements don’t come throughout as all that surprising from Marjorie Taylor Greene. She appears to have some obsession with this era of German historical past, lately evaluating a masks requirement on the House ground to Jews being pressured to put on yellow stars.
The different unusual facet to this clip is the argument about how statues are wanted to show individuals about historical past. There are loads of methods to find out about historic figures, together with books, documentaries, and the web. Why do youngsters or anybody else want to go to a statue of somebody to find out about them? It’s nearly like the best does not understand that documentaries, historical past books, and lecturers exist. This argument additionally ignores the truth that most frequently the purpose of constructing a statue of somebody is to allow them to be honored or revered. If a society progresses to a degree the place it doesn’t need to honor or revere a historic determine anymore, it makes excellent sense for that society to take down the statue and substitute it with one thing else. But Greene can be against that, as a result of apparently it might render her unable to show others about historical past.
