    “While most Americans were eating turkey and stuffing at whatever kind of socially-distanced gathering their state government would allow, “peaceful protesters” — who never spread the coronavirus, apparently — toppled statues and spray-painted anti-Thanksgiving messages to celebrate the holiday. Vandals targeted statues of President William McKinley in Chicago, a veterans monument in Portland, an Abraham Lincoln statue in Spokane, Wash., and two statues in Minneapolis: one of George Washington and another celebrating pioneers.

    “Stop colinization [sic]. End Thanksgiving. F**k 12,” vandals spray-painted on the plinth of the Washington statue in Washburn Fair Oaks Park in Minneapolis. The vandals targeted the statue either late on Wednesday night or early on Thanksgiving morning.”

    These actions are perverted and sickening. The perpetrators need to be locked up. I hope video or the police investigation finds those responsible for these criminal acts so they can serve 10 years in federal prison per Trumps executive order.

    Many people on the left are drenched with the exact things they accuse others of and right now what they're drenched with is hate, violence and dividing the country.

    This is despicable. Perpetrators should be arrested.

    Contrary to what many think, these idiots are not representative of the incoming administration. Biden wants this to stop as much as everyone else. My advice to those who support Trump is to get onboard with Biden on this issue. The more you try to portray these crimes as a political issue, the harder it will be to solve.

    This is a cultural issue, not a political issue. You won't find many, if any Democrats that support this. Perhaps these events will cause them to act, I don't know, but if you try to blame Democrats for the vandalism, the problem will not get solved.

    “No, you're being censored because you are wrong, and the power of social media requires us to temper the dissemination of disinformation to preserve our democracy. Our nation. Our people. You're being censored because what is being presented is anti-American and dangerous. You're being censored because censoring you is what patriotic Americans do.”

    and we are supposed to have dialogue and tolerance for a diversity of beliefs and views with comments like above?

    Lol. Sorry to trigger you. Free speech, you know.

    Funny you would use that in a post where I'm agreeing with you.

    My opinion is based on facts. I have no problem calling anti-American sentiment when I see it. You can disagree, but you really don't have any facts to back it up.

    Dude, it's democrats who are doing this. If democrats didn't tacitly support the tearing down of statues then we'd still have a lot of statues still standing. Heck, some people who tore down statues weren't even prosecuted.

    No, it's not. You can say "it's Democrats" all you want. Nobody supports this. Show me one Democrat supporting vandalism.

    This is very much ok with me. Hammer the establishment when ever you can.
    Thats what we did in the late 60s and than in the 70s.
    Just hurts because we are the establishment now.

    Even though the actions or alleged actions described in this post are disgusting they cannot be punis le by a POTUS executive order since the executive branch does not make laws congress does.

    I don't know what is saddest:

    ----seeing history vandalized and destroyed

    ----seeing how many of these Antifa and BLM thug types have no clue about history

    ----seeing Democrat politicians sitting back and enabling these things

    ----seeing everyday Democrats supporting this stuff, supporting the enabling politicians, and supporting crap like "defund the police"

    There is a 10 year prison term for the vandalism or destruction of certain statues in certain places and that caused a dramatic reduction in the behavior.

    That EC only applies to Do which is under federal control. Vandalism laws should apply to all properties and I am sure they do. I would consider a stricter law being applied to national historic monuments other than monuments to traitors e.g. Confederates which should be treated like any property nothing special. I understand that somewhere in either Seatlle or in Oregon there is a statue to Lenin. That does not deserve any extra protection. That should be torn down just like they were in the decent former Soviet Republics.

    I don't agree that US history should be laid waste to by terrorists, though to me statues of Democrats are no big deal. I would include Northern Democrats --- even though they didn't fight in the war, they were on the sidelines with pom-poms cheering for their team.

    What's disgusting is that Exalted Cleagle Robert Byrd still stands in the Capitol Bldg. The Memorial to White Supremacist Stephen Douglas still stands in Chicago. The Senate Office Bldg is still named after racist Richard Russell. But ... Abraham Lincoln is taken down. It's pretty clear who these terrorists are and their allegiance.

    The Civil was about Southern pro slavery traitors it was not about Democrats since the fact that Southerners were Democrats was secondary. The Northern Democratic Party faction split from the Southern Democratic Party. In fact the Southern Democratic Party held it's own convention in Charleston the Northern Democratic Party held theirs in Baltimore. Most people are not aware that the Southern Democratic Party became for all intents and purposes a separate party until things melded after the Civil War. The Northern Democratic Party further split into pro and anti slavery factions.

    Therefore to label and consider the Southern Traitors to be Democrats is wrong and insane and either either fraudulent or downright ignorant.
    I am telling you this not because I support the Democratic Party because I do ot but people need to know the true history of the times that lead up to the Civil War and up to the passage of the Civil Rights acts. The Civil rights acts were signed by a SouthernDemocrat LBJ and the majority of the yes votes in Cogress were from Democrats. Virtually all Southern Senators and Congressmen voted against the CivilRights acts with two exceptions one Democrat voted yes and the only Republican Seator in the South voted no. So truths a honest factual history tells us that the. Oil war and slavery and Jim Crow was a Southern evil not a Democratic evil. It takes a brave honest person to accept the truth about history and not swim and drown in partisan party politics.

    Who tore down Lincolns statue and where was such as act of monumental stupidity occur?

    tRUMP supported white nationalists. I thought that meant not all trump supporters are not white nationalists?
    Now you're saying they all are white nationalists, if we use your logic that democrats support tearing down statues. Even though, I am not aware of any dem ever telling anyone to tear down statues.

    I'll make a wild guess here and surmise this was done by privileged white punks playing at being big, bad revolutionaries. A little jail time spent among some REAL bad boys and girls would do wonders for their outlook on life.

    Dude I want to rent a Texas history book that said the South won this civil war and then willingly rejoin the Union, because Lincoln said they could keep their slaves, and that it was the north who assassinated Lincoln because he was allowing slavery to go on. And that Booth and his conspirators were framed by the North to create entice South and anti-slavery sentiment to get the 15th amendment passed

    There were those who claimed credit. I’m talking about specific individuals upon whom to press specific charges against

    Might as well be burning the Flag yourself.
