From the August 15 edition of Fox News' Hannity:

NEWT GINGRICH: I think if a city wants to take a statue out of the center of the city and put it in a museum, that makes some sense. I don't think we want to be like the Taliban, who were destroying Buddhist temples or Buddhist statues. I don't think we want to be like ISIS, which was destroying historic monuments.

And you have a great deal of people on the left who if they could destroy our entire memory of America, they would wipe it out and we would have no knowledge of what it meant to be an American.
