“My name is Robert Lee IV, I’m a descendant of Robert E. Lee, the Civil War general whose statue was at the center of violence in Charlottesville,” the numale Churchian said. He then further virtue signaled harder, amongst the circus of the grotesque at the VMAs, “We have made my ancestor an idol of white supremacy, racism, and hate. As a pastor, it is my moral duty to speak out against racism, America’s original sin. Today, I call on all of us with privilege and power to answer God’s call to confront racism and white supremacy head-on.”
They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, but from what this boy looks like and what he said, there’s no way he’s a descendant of the great Robert E. Lee.
Thankfully, as with all numales and soyboys, they’ll run for the hills once someone (or a community) puts an end to their bullshit. The Washington Post reported the following on Monday:
On Monday, Lee announced he would be leaving his church — Bethany United Church of Christ in Winston-Salem, N.C. In his statement, published on the website of the Auburn Theological Seminary, Lee wrote that while he did have congregants who supported his freedom of speech, many resented the attention the church received after the VMAs.
“A faction of church members were concerned about my speech and that I lifted up Black Lives Matter movement, the Women’s March, and Heather Heyer as examples of racial justice work,” he wrote, adding that his “church’s reaction was deeply hurtful.” Lee wrote that he never sought the kind of attention that has followed him since the protests in Charlottesville last month, even while his visibility as a religious leader and staunch opponent of Confederate memorials garnered international recognition, a turn of events no doubt fueled by his namesake.
Wow. Just wow. Who would have thought shitting on your ancestors for coastal elite approval would result in some sort of backlash? It’s not like BLM hates cops (or assassinates them) or the Women’s March was a parade of cringy barren cat laddies screeching at the sky while wearing gaudy “pussy hats.” Normie Joe-Six-Pack didn’t look at that and think those people were insane, so it’s perfectly acceptable to belittle a Southern (and American) icon, right?
Wrong. Now, Bobby Lee IV (don’t think there will be a V in this line – the physiognomy is a dead giveaway) has left the church. If you can’t stand the heat, you better stay out of the kitchen. Or maybe they meant pulpit.
It doesn’t matter, let’s hope this is the last we hear from this numale disrespecting a great man.
Lee IV should have remembered Proverbs 22:28 – Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.
