Fox News co-host Brian Kilmeade worried that liberals would try to remove memorials to victims of 9/11 terrorist attacks, which he compared to memorials to Confederate generals who fought against the U.S. government and fought to enslave black people during the Civil War.
Kilmeade asked Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke: “Do you worry 100 years from now someone’s going to try to take that memorial down like they’re trying to remake our memorials today?”
Zinke insisted that monuments are needed to learn from history:
Well I’m one that believes that you know we should learn from history. And I think our monuments are part of our country’s history. We can learn from it. Since we don’t put up statues of Jesus, everyone’s going to fall morally short.
