Will Stone Mountain, Georgia, now be re-carved to removed all the Democrats depicted thereon (“Thomas Jefferson statue toppled by protesters at Portland high school,” Web, June 15)? Thomas Jefferson is now being attacked for owning slaves, but in reality I believe it was Jefferson’s opposition to Muslim marauders who attacked American ships in the early days of our nation.

Jefferson ordered the U.S. Navy to attack these savages, who were looting U.S. vessels and taking captives.

Oh, the humanity.
