Peggy Noonan Gets Dragged on Twitter For Defending Stained Glass Windows of Confederates

Late on Wednesday night, Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan took to Twitter to give her reaction to Washington National Cathedral’s removal of two stained glass windows of Confederates Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.

“A shonda,” she said (a Yiddish term for “shame”). “They were figures in the greatest, most killing moral struggle in US history. They didn’t tweet, they took to the field and died.”

She followed up with another tweet saying, “Then one side won, they reconciled, the American experiment continued and we learned through this history. Keep em. Let it be. They are us.”

Twitter didn’t approve such tweets.

Noonan responded to one Twitter user defending her position.

On a lighter note, it’s Noonan’s birthday today. Happy Birthday!
