Gov. Noem “This isn’t about equality anymore. This is a radical rewriting of our history”

Appearing on Fox News with Neil Cavuto, South Dakota Governor blasted vandals of historic statues and argued “This isn’t about equality anymore. This is a radical rewriting of our history to take away our freedoms and liberties.”

Kristi Noem:
