The structures of George Soros are deliberately waging a war against American culture and traditions, fueling protests, and seeking to destroy the historical identity of not only the United States, said member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Elena Panina, commenting on the demolition of the monument to US President Abraham Lincoln by protesters.
Earlier, American media reported that protesters in Portland, Oregon demolished statues of US Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.
“When the monument to General Lee in Charlottesville was demolished in 2017, Donald Trump asked a rhetorical question – who is next, Washington or Jefferson, since the founding fathers of the United States were also slave owners. However, it never occurred to him that starting with the demolition of the monument to the commander southerners, the “protesters” will end up destroying the statue of Lincoln, the president who abolished slavery and died at the hands of a Confederate terrorist, “Panina told RIA Novosti.
The parliamentarian noted that at first glance, we are talking about the ignorance of street hooligans, “who do not care what to destroy,” that the organizers of this action are well aware of the history.
Panina added that Lincoln was accused of malicious acts against the Indians, on whose lands the colonists rushed, but the accusations are difficult to accept as fair, since his policy towards the indigenous population of America was much more humane than his predecessors.
“Against the backdrop of interracial protests in the United States, it seemed that Lincoln was the figure in American history who could unite society. However, those behind the protests and behind the scenes orchestrating them do not need not only the heroes of the Confederation, but also their opponents – fighters against slavery. Soros’s structures are deliberately waging a war against American culture and traditions, striving to destroy historical identity, which is not surprising. Thus, they operate not only in the United States, but throughout the world, “the deputy stated.
