From the Washington Post:
“I would tell you that Robert E. Lee was an honorable man,” Kelly told Ingraham. “He was a man that gave up his country to fight for his state, which 150 years ago was more important than country. It was always loyalty to state first back in those days. Now it’s different today. But the lack of an ability to compromise led to the Civil War, and men and women of good faith on both sides made their stand where their conscience had them make their stand.”
Didn’t Trump say something similar about “I’m sure there are good people on both sides” when he was talking about the Charlottesville white supremacist march?
And it seems to me, but I may be wrong here, that “the lack of an ability to compromise” was not the biggest problem leading up to the Civil War. Either one believes that “all men are created equal” or one doesn’t. There is no compromise on that, Gen. Kelly.
