CNN anchor Dana Bash asked Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) if she believed that the statues of George Washington come down?
“Well, let me just say that we should start off by having a national dialogue on it at some point,” responded Duckworth.
Sara Carter, reacted to the democrat senator on a tweet, saying that:
“It will never end —- the cancel culture will never be satisfied until everything they know or find offensive is gone… I remember the Taliban blowing up The Buddhas of Bamyan statues they found offensive, or children’s suicide camps in #FATA where they wouldn’t allow depictions of peoples faces, while they spewed lies – what about book burnings in Germany during WWII – should the Pyramids be blown apart because they were built by Slaves? Should we dismantle all societies because every single one has committed some offense or atrocity? When does it end?”

Biden supports ‘exception’ to filibuster to ‘codify Roe v. Wade in the law’
Breaking Thursday, President Joe Biden gave his support to amend or drop the filibuster rule in order to restore perceived abortion rights lost following the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade on Friday.
While at the NATO summit in Spain, Biden said “The most important thing to be clear about is I believe we have to codify Roe v. Wade in the law, and the way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that.”
“And if the filibuster gets in the way, it’s like voting rights, it should be we provide an exception for this, requiring an exception to the filibuster for this action to deal with the Supreme Court decision,” Biden added.
A filibuster requires 60 votes, and The Hill writes “There are not 50 senators who support changing the rules around the filibuster, however, making Biden’s suggestion unlikely to go anywhere.”
