Right-wing commentator Josh Bernstein posted a video recently in which he suggested that God is opposed to the removal of Confederate monuments and is divinely intervening to prevent them from being taken down.
Discussing a decision by “communist” Dallas officials to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee from a city park, Bernstein said that the first crane brought in to do the job was too small, forcing the city to bring in a larger crane. After praising several companies for refusing to help the city with this effort, Bernstein noted that a larger crane was eventually found, but that it got into a fatal accident on its way to the job site.
“I don’t do a religious show,” Bernstein said, “but isn’t this a little odd that two attempts have been made to take down this statue and, for whatever reasons, they have not been successfulthe second of which being a fatal accident. Is this divine intervention, folks? Is this maybe a sign from up above, saying you shouldn’t remove this statue?”
For the record, the statue was successfully removed last night.
