The iconoclasts of today, the American Taliban, seems like they won’t rest until they tear down more statues. But here comes a crazy case (more than a year old) of a group of students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison demanding that the on-campus statue of Lincoln be torn down because he supposedly owned slaves. The protester-in-chief who is a native-American is quoted as saying: “Everyone thinks of Lincoln as the great, you know, freer of slaves, but let’s be real: He owned slaves, and as natives, we want people to know that he ordered the execution of native men…Just to have him here at the top of Bascom is just really belittling.” Jarrett Stepman of the Heritage Foundation wrote about this for, and he joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the story.
