House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is planning to introduce legislation this week that is designed to protect all statues and monuments around the country, as well as punish those who deface and destroy them under federal statutes.
“This is to protect American statues because what we want to do is tell the history,” he said.
“When you watch [San Francisco's] St. [Junipero] Serra [statue] get torn down or you watch Ulysses S. Grant's [statue vandalized], you watch Christopher Columbus, you watch Frederick Douglass, this is a real challenge because we have local officials who have a responsibility for the rule of law,” he added.
“Why don't they have greater regard for the rule of law instead of encouraging the mob to tear it down? If they do that, if they allow that to happen then why should federal dollars flow to that city?' the House GOP leader added.
Now, the real question is: Will Democrats support his bill?
Will House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) even allow the bill to reach committee, must less a floor vote?
What she does and what Democrats do about McCarthy’s bill will say a lot about where they are regarding the preservation of our culture at this moment in our history.
