Scrubbing Confederate history from the country’s fabric would be a monumental mistake, Condoleezza Rice said Monday.
The former Bush-era Secretary of State — now plugging her new book, “Democracy” — argued on “Fox and Friends” that tearing down statues honoring slave owners was merely “sanitizing” U.S. history.
“When you start wiping out your history, sanitizing your history to make you feel better, it’s a bad thing,” Rice said.
