Let’s stick it to the Woke Left by building more icons glorifying white supremacists who fought for slavery. That’ll show ’em!

Jesse Kelly, a conservative radio host and two-time failed congressional candidate, put forth the bold proposal on Tuesday night.

“Let me help out the Right here real quick: The next time someone proposes that you tear down a Robert E. Lee statue, you immediately build ten more Robert E. Lee statues,” Kelly tweeted. “Not cause you love him or hate him. But because that’s how you deal with the Leftist scourge.”

That particularly inventive suggestion in conservatives’ culture war against the push to remove Confederate monuments was immediately met with derision.
