Jeh Johnson said that decades-old statues are now threats to public safety.
Obama Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told ABC News’ Martha Raddetz on Sunday that monuments to Confederates are a threat to “homeland security.”
“What alarms so many of us from a security perspective is that so many of the statues, the confederate monuments, are now, modern-day, becoming symbols and rallying points for white nationalism and neo-Nazis,” Johnson said.
“I salute those in cities and states who are taking down those monuments for reasons of public safety and security,” he said. “That’s not a matter of political correctness. That’s a matter of public safety and homeland security.”
