The question was answered PERFECTLY

This again.

Oh I’ve answered that question,  and if you look at what I said you will see that that question was answered perfectly.

He said, with his usual air of ineffable conceit.

 

And I was talking about people that went because they felt very strongly about the monument to Robert E. Lee, a great general – whether you like it or not, he was one of the great generals – I’ve spoken to many generals here, right at the White House, and many people thought – of the generals, they said he was maybe their favorite general – people were there protesting the taking down of the monuments of Robert E. Lee. Everybody knows that.

Well, lots of people think that, and lots pretend to think it, but that’s because it’s the propaganda. It’s the dainty fig leaf pasted over the shameful history of slavery and white supremacy in the utterly literal sense that people like Trump want to translate into something noble. It’s just more Gone With the Wind which itself was just more Birth of a Nation which itself was based on the novel The Clansman by Thomas Dixon.
