Leftist Takes Sledgehammer to Christopher Columbus Monument
The Christopher Columbus monument in Baltimore, Maryland is 225 years old. But the week after the city removed Confederate Monuments in the dead of night, a protester used a sledgehammer to ruin it. They even videotaped their actions because they are proud of committing crimes.
Christopher Columbus symbolizes the initial invasion of European capitalism into the Western Hemisphere. Columbus initiated a centuries-old wave of terrorism, murder, genocide, rape, slavery, ecological degradation and capitalist exploitation of labor in the Americas. That Columbian wave of destruction continues on the backs of Indigenous, African-American and brown people.
Racist monuments to slave owners and murderers have always bothered me. Baltimore’s poverty is concentrated in African-American households, and these statues are just an extra slap in the face. They were built in the 20th century in response to a movement for African Americans’ human dignity. What kind of a culture goes to such lengths to build such hate-filled monuments? What kind of a culture clings to those monuments in 2017?
What kind of culture allows vandals to run amok, committing property damage and violence? Their definition of “justice” is predicated upon violence and hate.
Vandalism won’t cure the ills of society
Vandalizing a statue – any statue- will never “tear down racism.” Racism exists in the heart, and it cannot be removed by force. Bashing statues, tearing down monuments can never eradicate what these loonbirds view as racism. In fact, it may actually cause a resurgence of it. The only “statement” it makes is that the perpetrators are morons bent upon damaging the property of others.
If Christopher Columbus and his ilk from other European cultures had not come to this land, these snowflake idiots would not exist, and neither would our nation. If they had not come here, there would be no United States, nothing even resembling the country we know now. We would not have learned any lessons from history because history would have been permanently altered. Was Columbus perfect? Absolutely not. Neither were any of the explorers and missionaries who came here. But they are all part of our history, and as such, we should remember both their failures and accomplishments.
Since history is no longer taught in schools and colleges, now they teach “social justice” and how to protest, it is no wonder that these ignorant, uneducated fools are running rampant. They are paid by George Soros, the Nazi sympathizer, and have been encouraged by liberals for decades.
