Really American 🇺🇸
Traitorous confederates like Robert E. Lee killed many Americans while fighting to preserve slavery, so it's fitting that his statue was removed. RT if you agree that all Confederate statues should be removed.

Nothing honors Robert E. Lee’s legacy more than being brought low in Virginia.

So we got rid of Robert E Lee and Kellyanne Conway today. Not bad for a Wednesday.

Now that they took down that Robert E Lee statue, all racism has finally come to an end in America. Thank God!

Du Bois told you everything you need to know about Robert E. Lee in 1928.

Yes I’m sure Robert E. Lee could have prevented a bloody multi-year stalemate from becoming a humiliating defeat.

One more time for the people in the back. These monuments of Civil War traitors were erected after the war in order to intimidate Black people. They are not heroes. Removing them is the right thing to do. Robert E Lee Statue 1890-2021. @cwebbonline's photo on Robert E Lee

Robert E. Lee led an anti-humanity, anti-Black, and anti-Democracy movement — he didn't want any part of America. It's only right that America doesn't want any part of him. Good riddance!

If you're happy that Robert E. Lee is no longer peering over the city of Richmond, Virginia we should follow each other or if we already follow each other leave a high five.

If only we had Robert E Lee commanding our troops in Afghanistan we would have won is the take version of a black hole: no sense or logic can escape from it.

now that Robert E. Lee has been removed, the only remaining statue on Monument Avenue in Richmond, once the capital of the Confederacy, is that of legendary African-American tennis champion Arthur Ashe

NEW! "Just watched as a massive crane took down the magnificent and very famous statue of 'Robert E. Lee On His Horse'... Our culture is being destroyed and our history and heritage, both good and bad, are being extinguished by the Radical Left, and we can’t let that happen!"

Seen a lot of tweets about how Robert E. Lee "killed hundreds of thousands of Americans." What he did was defend Virginia from repeated invasion, with fewer men and equipment. Northern armies pillaged Virginia. Amazing we have no room for complexities involved.

Robert E. Lee, who infamously ordered Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg, sending over 1,100 Confederate troops to their deaths by crossing an open field into a barrage of Union gun and cannon fire, against the advice of his top officers, resulting in a catastrophic loss.

One of the U.S.'s largest Confederate statues was removed from Richmond, Virginia, on Wednesday. One Black activist, a native of the city, said he wanted to tell his dead relatives "the humiliation and agony and pain you suffered has been partly lifted." @nytimes's photo on Robert E Lee

The statue of Robert E. Lee finally came down in Richmond… Thank goodness… He was the quintessence of evil… Southern conservatives are a curious bunch, boy… They love Jesus, yet they’ll essentially worship the Devil…

President Trump is right. Our nation doesn’t create men like Robert E. Lee anymore, to our great detriment.

Hey Donald, if Robert E. Lee had commanded our forces in Afghanistan he would have FUCKING LOST just like he LOST in 1865. He was a loser, Donald…ya know, just like you.

The Confederacy was defeated after only 5 years, so why did Robert E. Lee get to have a statue in Richmond, Virginia for 131 years
