During the Miss America pageant on Sunday night, Miss New Jersey Kaitlyn Schoeffel was asked about removing Confederate statues. Her answer has liberals furious.
“A recent poll found that slightly over half of Americans favored leaving confederate statues in place, while others want them removed. Keep them, or get rid of them?” asked judge Tara Lipinski, according to Young Conservatives.
“I don’t think the answer is to get rid of these statues,” Schoeffel responded. “I think the answer is to relocate them to museums, because we are truly defined by our country’s history, and I don’t think it’s something we need to forget; we need to always remember it and always honor our history of America because it truly makes us who we are as Americans. But they should be moved to museums.”
Twitter users immediately expressed their fury:
