In the wake of the tragedy at Charlottesville, liberals are trying to erase symbols of American history.

They started with statues and quickly moved on to the Confederate flag.

But what one Republican said in response to criticism of the flag will shock you.

Parker Space is a New Jersey State Assemblymen.

He recently attended a Lynyrd Skynyrd and Hank Williams, Jr. concert.

He posted a picture on Facebook of him standing in front of a tailgate with a faux Confederate flag with Hank Williams, Jr.’s face on it.

Democrats were predictably outraged.

NJ.com reports:

“On Monday afternoon, the two Democratic Assembly candidates opposing Space and his running mate, former state Labor Commissioner Harold Wirths, in November denounced Space and said he was showing his “true colors.”

Democrats Kate Matteson and Gina Trish said on their shared Facebook page that “this behavior is unfitting of a sitting State Assemblyman and is indeed offensive and disrespectful to the thousands of constituents he represents.”

Republican politicians typically fold under pressure when the left hurls smears about racism and bigotry.

Establishment Republicans would rather lose an election than have Democrats lie about them as being “racists.”

But Space did not.

He shot back with a statement that shut his critics down.

NJ.com also reports:

“Space, 48, of Wantage, did not respond to a phone call on Sunday evening, but following the remarks from the Democrats he issued a six-sentence statement taking issue with his critics.

“Are you really trying to go there?  It was a Lynyrd Skynyrd and Hank Williams Jr. concert and I was there with about 20,000 others,” Space said, referring to the concert he attended in Bethel, New York.

“Are you saying that those bands are racist?  I am sure the African-American members of Hank’s touring band wouldn’t think so. Thank goodness it wasn’t an Ozzie Osbourne or KISS performance, then you would accuse me a being a Nazi or a satanist,” Space said.

He concluded, “When is this stuff going to end?”

Space has defended the flag before.

In 2015, the New Jersey State Assembly voted 73-0 to condemn symbols of the Confederacy.

Space was the only abstention.

Some Americans believe the Confederate flag is a symbol of racism.

Others view at as a piece of their heritage and part of American history.

Whatever side of the debate you fall on, efforts by liberals to tear down monuments and pull down Confederate flags are attempts to delete history.

Americans can’t learn from the past if it is ripped away from them and censored.
