Police in various American cities especially on the East and West coasts have stood down while fanatical mobs of leftists unilaterally determine which public monuments and statues should be toppled, destroyed, and in some cases beheaded — as in the recent “beheading” of a Christopher Columbus statue at a public park in Boston.
The destruction has not been contained to historical figures associated with slavery and racism. Almost any American historical figure memorialized via a statue or monument has become a target, as the movement has clearly revealed itself and it’s true goals, which have little to do with racism and reigning in bad police.
Reporters and commentators on social media have been tracking this trail of destruction. We have seen this before throughout history, toppling of historical and political statues, destruction and attacking of art, the underpinnings of an attempted ‘cultural revolution’ is underway by the far left.
American history is under attack.
Their target is not the Confederacy. It is the United States, as the Federalist recently reported. Here is just some proof
