Host Of ‘Fox & Friends’ Questions Fate Of 9/11 Memorials


The recent events in Charlottesville have got many questioning the fate of Confederate statues around the country. While some believe such statues should be removed because of their connotations of slavery, there are others, such as President Trump, who believe them to be important monuments that we today can learn from. While this ongoing debate has got many arguing about the right these statues have to remain standing, it’s got some questioning the fate of certain non-Confederate statues: namely those commemorating the people who died during the 9/11 attacks.

Brian Kilmeade, host of ‘Fox & Friends’, was having a discussion with Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke about a 9/11 memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The memorial in question honours the passengers of Flight 93 who fought with terrorists onboard the plane and prevented a fourth terrorist attack from happening as it had been planned out. Zinke remarked that what happened on the flight was an example of ‘America sticking together’. Kilmeade then posed the following question: ‘Do you worry 100 years from now someone’s going to try to take that memorial down like they’re trying remake our memorials today?’

Zinke didn’t seem fazed by the question. Indeed, he gave a quite dignified response, stating that people should learn from history and that the country’s memorials are part of its history. He also remarked that reflecting on history, both the good parts and the bad parts, is ‘a powerful statement’.
