Arizona Republican state Sen. Wendy Rogers defied belief with her rallying cry on Twitter Friday for people to “stand up for our culture!”

In what appeared to be a response to the Cleveland baseball team’s decision to move away from racist stereotypes by changing its name from the Indians to the Guardians, the Donald Trump apologist tweeted:

I like Indians and I like Redskins. I like Aunt Jemima and I like Uncle Ben. I like Robert E Lee and I like Stonewall Jackson. I don’t like traitors who hate America. Stand up for our culture!

In writing that she liked Confederate Army generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson but didn’t “like traitors who hate America,” commenters had some thoughts for the former Air Force pilot:

"I like Robert E Lee and I like Stonewall Jackson. I don’t like traitors who hate America."Who is going to tell her? https://t.co/T5tGfqactK

Robert E Lee and Stonewall Jackson were literally traitors who committed their lives to make war against America. https://t.co/KrQXmxaXnZ

Should we blame the education system? The voters? Both? Today, ignorance is something people are proud of. https://t.co/sgJeV0Uofo
