from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

In August of 2017, less than three years ago, president Trump held a press conference decrying the removal of Confederate statues.

“This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder, is George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself: ‘Where does it stop?'” Trump asked at a press conference that summer.

NBC mockingly wrote of Trump, that he gave “dire warnings … about the potential erasure of iconic memorials to the country’s Founding Fathers.”

Now where have we heard this? Oh that’s right – from all of us right-wing fearmongers – all us tinfoil-hat-wearing conspiracy theorists. How many of us conservatives have been warning of the “slippery slope,” and have been mocked for doing so?

“Is the president right about the impending threat to the founders? Historians who spoke to NBC News said such fears are slightly misplaced and that Trump is championing a murky interpretation of history.”

“The president can raise the slippery slope, but it’s a false slippery slope,” said Kevin Levin, a Boston-based historian who specializes in American Civil War history.

Is it really?!

Well, Mr. Levin – you and all your leftist know-it-all colleagues might want to take a look around, because the slippery slope, in just the span of 34 months, has morphed into a raging torrent.

And while you’re at, perhaps you should offer the president a sincere apology – admitting that he was right, again, and you were wrong … again and again and again.

Don’t hold your breath. Being a leftist means never having to say you’re sorry or that you were wrong.

As an aside: I swear – why does anyone still listen to you leftist “experts.” You’re literally wrong about everything!

As it turned out, President Trump was both very astute and 100% correct. The only thing he got wrong was the order of which founder would be the first to succumb to the ignorant mob.
