Actor James Woods responded to a tweet from Chelsea Clinton on social media Friday after the youngest Clinton put in her two cents about the confederate monument controversy.
Clinton basically asked for verbal abuse when she compared confederate statues to the celebration of “lucifer.” Churches, Clinton tried to assert, don’t celebrate “lucifer” through monuments, despite the fact that the devil plays a large role in Christian lore. However, this is wrong.
Trying to make a point that just because the confederacy is part of America’s tradition, that doesn’t mean it should be “glorified” with monuments, Chelsea was instead lambasted by those who haven’t forgotten her family’s history. Others pointed out that Lucifer statues certainly do exist, even in churches.
“The story of Lucifer-who rebelled against God is part of many Christians’ traditions. I’ve never been in a church with a Lucifer statue,” Clinton wrote.

“Perhaps not, Chelsea, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist,” one Twitter user pointed out, providing photographic evidence.

“Excellent point, Chelsea: really a fine point. No, no statues of Lucifer. No statues of Judas either,” said another.

Others also pointed out Clinton’s folly: “Wait most of the cathedrals in New York have at least one depiction of Lucifer. Just saying your brilliant though.”

However, actor James Woods, known for being one of the few outspoken conservatives in Hollywood with unshakable values, had the most brutal response to the daughter of impeached President Bill Clinton; who is known to have sexually assaulted more than one woman.
“Check out the #rapist statue of your Dad. Trust me, he was Lucifer to the women he abused,” Woods wrote on Friday evening.
Woods was referring a statue of Clinton in South Dakota that one of Clinton’s rape accusers, Juanita Broaddrick, said recently she would like to destroy.
