Fans Of Dolly Parton Want Monument To Replace Confederate Statues

Dolly Parton

Fans of Dolly Parton want a monument to the country music legend to replace controversial confederate statues asking Parton’s home state of Tennessee honor the singer.

An online petition calls for officials to remove confederate statues that honor confederate figures and instead honor Dolly Parton “a true Tennessee hero” says the petition. It acknowledges that while history should not be forgotten, we shouldn’t be “glamorizing those who do not deserve praise”.

Among public figures endorsing the movement to honor Dolly Parton is Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

“Now this seems worthwhile: replace statue of Nathan Bedford Forrest — former delegate to 1860 Democrat National Convention, vicious slave trader & the founder of the KKK — with the great Dolly Parton. A win-win,” Cruz wrote on Twitter.
