(AmericanProsperity.com) – It seems the Left’s cancel culture has no end. After cities across our nation removed statues of our nation’s history and renamed buildings to combat “structural racism,” Democrats in Congress have now pushed to remove confederate statues from our nation’s Capitol building.
On Tuesday, June 29, the House of Representatives passed a bill with a vote of 285-120 that would remove statues of Americans who supported the Confederacy or those who upheld slavery. While all the no votes were Republicans, 67 Republicans did support the bill. If signed into law, statues such as that of Vice President John Calhoun and the Confederacy’s Vice President Alexander Hamilton Stephens would be taken out of the historic building.
CNN’s chief congressional correspondent Manu Raju shared the next steps for the bill:
285-120, the House approves a measure to remove Confederate statues from the halls of the Capitol. It now moves to the Senate. All Dems voted for it. All ‘no’ votes were Republicans.

Currently, every US state provides two statues to the National Statuary Hall Collection, but they can only be removed by the state that sent it. This law would change that.
Representative Matt Rosendale (R-MT) believes this bill was motivated by the Left’s “Critical Race Theory concepts of structural racism, microaggressions, and a United States-based solely on white supremacy.” He also noted that this legislation is a slippery slope, and if allowed to pass by the Senate, George Washington and those that won the west might be next on the chopping block.
