Questions about statue removal

DEAR EDITOR:

I see where statues that have anything to do with the Confederacy are being removed in many places all over the country. The Confederacy promoted slavery, therefore liberal America thinks they must come down.

John Blake, an author at CNN and a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. historian wrote an article on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Jan. 16, 2012. In it he says, “Dr. King never publicly welcomed gays at the front gate of his beloved community. Instead he would counsel gays to seek psychiatric help for a solution.”

With knowing Dr. King’s stance on gays, I wonder if liberal America will demand that statues of Dr. King be removed from places like Potomac Park, Washington, D.C.; King Heights, Milwaukee; Kelly Park in Birmingham, Ala.; and parks in Kalamazoo, Mich., San Bernadino, Calif., and others around the country?
