This is how the world sees America. As liberators, not oppressors. How do I know this? Because the human spirit is inclined, relentlessly, towards freedom. Tyranny is temporal. Liberty is ephemeral, and enduring. And our charter enshrines Liberty as the natural state of man.
I’m trying to imagine if suffering people erected a statue like this pre-2009. The caterwauling from the left about Republican callousness would be deafening.
But, Black Jesus? Meh.
