Condi Rice Comes Out of the Closet, Gives Liberals BRUTAL History Lesson

By

Condoleezza Rice went on “Fox & Friends” yesterday morning to talk about her new book, “Democracy: Stories from the Long Road to Freedom.”

She isn’t afraid to talk about America’s history – the good and the bad – which includes slavery and the Civil War.

Co-host Brian Kilmeade asked her straight away,

“I want to talk about where your book starts, and that’s our constitution. As an African-American woman, do you see yourself in this constitution? Do you think that, when we look at nine of our first twelve presidents as slave owners, should we start taking their statues down and say, we’re embarrassed by you?”

“In a word, No,” Rice said before continuing,

“I am a firm believer in ‘keep your history before you. So I don’t actually want to rename things that were named for slave owners. I want us to have to look at those names, and realize what they did, and be able to tell our kids what they did and for them to have a sense of their own history.”

“When you start wiping out your history; sanitizing your history to make you feel better? It’s a bad thing.”

Watch:

One of the best lines:

“George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and other slave owners were people of their times. What we should celebrate is that from the Jeffersons and the Washingtons as slave owners…look at where we are now.”
