PIERS MORGAN: COVID-19 is a deadly threat that Trump has shamefully bungled but cynical Democrats are presiding over a violent culture war against America's heroes and history that could destroy it Last week, protesters threatened to tear down Abraham Lincoln's statue in Washington DC. It was built to commemorate the Emancipation Proclamation, an executive order signed by the Lincoln that put an end to slavery in the Confederacy. The statue was intended to be a celebration of slaves being set free, one of the most important moments in the whole history of the country. Now, Boston has decided to remove an exact replica of the statue. Pressure is growing on Washington to the same. And students at the University of Wisconsin have demanded another statue, just of Lincoln alone, be removed. I despair at what is happening in America. I despair at President Trump's response to it because he's being typically inflammatory in a dog-whistle effort to fire up his base with just months to an election he now looks like losing. But I particularly despair at the woeful inaction of Democrats who are sitting back and watching all this crazy nonsense happen and doing nothing to stop it. The party's presidential nominee Joe Biden launched a ferocious attack on Trump yesterday, saying he has 'surrendered' to coronavirus. It was a perfectly justified allegation given America's shocking COVID-19 death toll and the devastating surge in cases all over the country. But this savage, unrelenting culture war may end up causing even more lasting damage as it seeks to destroy everything the nation was built on and everyone who built it. And Biden and the Democrats have surrendered to those waging it with the same cowardly inaction that Trump has shown towards the coronavirus.
