Pelosi’s Dad Once Praised ‘The Lives’ Of Robert E. Lee And Stonewall Jackson At Statue Dedication
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s
father, the late former Baltimore Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., once lauded
Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson at a monument
dedication ceremony in his city over half a century ago.
The statues were torn down by
Baltimore authorities last Tuesday after the violent events surrounding the
removal of a Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, Va. last week.
Any comment, Nan?
According to The
Baltimore Sun, the statue, first erected in 1948, included a
dedication ceremony of prominent city politicians like Pelosi’s father who led
the municipality at the time.
At the dedication, D’Alesandro said
of the monument, “Today, with our nation beset by subversive groups and
propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for
inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and
determined in preserving our sacred institutions.”
D’Alesandro was joined by fellow
Baltimore resident J. Henry Ferguson, who donated the funds to build the
monument and whose father was an ally of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

“They were great generals and great
Christian soldiers,” Ferguson said during the ceremony.
More recently, Pelosi herself called
for the removal of all confederate statues in the nations’ capitol.
“The Confederate statues in the halls
of Congress have always been reprehensible,” Pelosi said in a statement. “If
Republicans are serious about rejecting white supremacy, I call upon Speaker
Ryan to join Democrats to remove the Confederate statues from the Capitol
Washington Post notes there are 12 Confederate statues in the Capitol and
it is the decision of each state as to whether to replace the statue that is
representing their state.
