AT IT AGAIN: Antifa mobs vandalize statues in Minneapolis, Portland, others to fight ‘colonization’

While most Americans celebrated Thanksgiving with turkey and mashed potatoes, Antifa mobs across the country celebrated with spray paint and statue-toppling. 

Among the statues targeted with anti-Thanksgiving messages were President William McKinley in Chicago, a veterans monument in Portland, an Abraham Lincoln statue in Spokane, Washington and two statues in Minneapolis: one of George Washington and another celebrating pioneers. 

Vandals spray painted messages like “Stop colonization. End Thanksgiving” on the Washington statue in Minneapolis on Thanksgiving Eve. 

A group called the Pan-Indigenous People’s Liberation took credit for the vandalism, which they said was part of a “national decolonial day of action.” The vandals also targeted a large granite monument in B.F. Nelson Park – dedicated to pioneers – with “no thanks,” “no more genocide,” “decolonize,” and “land back,” the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. 

The message “land back” seems to refer to the LANDBACK campaign, a Native American movement fighting white supremacy. The campaign calls for the removal of all “white supremacy structures” responsible for removing Native Americans from their land; for the defunding of white supremacy in the form of police, the military, Border Patrol and ICE; a “return of “all public lands back into Indigenous hands;” and a policy of “consent,” according to PJ Media. 

On the morning of Thanksgiving, vandals attempted to destroy a statue of President William McKinley in a Chicago park, but were stopped by police. The vandals tied a rope to a police car and spray painted the statues with the same “Land Back”  message, according to NBC 5 Chicago

In Spokane, vandals covered a statue of Abraham Lincoln with red paint. 

And in Portland, the Antifa mob Youth Liberation Front smashed windows and sprayed graffiti, calling for “a decentralized, anti-colonial day of action on Thanksgiving eve.” 

 

 

 

In a year of struggle and devastation amidst a global pandemic, America has many things to be thankful for: liberty, peace, prosperity and perseverance, just to name a few. And while Antifa may try to destroy our great country, America will always prevail.

    Wouldn’t be easier thing to do would be just to leave America? Unless you’re Native American, which I highly doubt most of these assholes are, they just need to go back to wherever the hell their families came from before they came to America. Simple as thatUnlike most of the shit holes people have fled to come to America, America doesn’t have a clause saying you can’t leave. Feel free to leave anytime you like preferably now.

      Probably instructed to look the other way. Either that or sent on some wild goose chase.

    When are we going to get serious about putting these entitled, spoiled, ignorant little thugs in jail for meaningful periods of time, AND making them pay restitution for damages? Many of these statues cost tens of thousands of dollars, or more, of taxpayer money to erect, yet these privileged delinquents feel they can destroy them with impunity, simply because they resent certain incidents in American history, as they understand them. The longer this continues, with no meaningful consequences, the more commonplace it will become, and none of our national figures will be safe. Their intent is not to target individual statues, but rather, to destroy our heritage and national identity. Let’s not let them!

New York City Opens First Two Government-Sanctioned Drug Injection Sites in U.S.

Published

on

Drug overdoses and addiction have hit an all-time high during the pandemic, with the Centers for Disease Control revealing over 93,000 people died from overdoses in 2020, up 30 percent from 2019. As a solution to the crisis, New York City is opening the nation’s first government-sanctioned drug injection sites.

Two injection sites will be opened in Manhattan on Tuesday, giving drug users a controlled environment, as well as offer treatment options. Visitors must bring their own drugs, and the sites will offer clean injection supplies including needles.

The sites will also have naloxone on-site, the emergency drug that reverses narcotics overdoses. Drug addicts know public libraries have naloxone on hand in case of someone overdosing, which has made libraries one of the most popular public places for drug use across the country.

Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio implemented the sites before he leaves office. In a written statement, de Blasio said this unique strategy to combat the drug crisis will prove that “after decades of failure, a smarter approach is possible.” The mayor says he has notified the sites that he would not penalize them or “take enforcement action” and that law enforcement has been told to stand down as well.

New York City health commission Dr. Dave A. Chokshi supports the measures, telling the New York Times “2020, unfortunately, was the deadliest year on record for overdoses both here in New York City as well as nationally. Every four hours, someone dies of a drug overdose in New York City…we feel a deep conviction and also a sense of urgency in opening overdose prevention centers.”

Opponents of government-sanctioned injection sites worry the facilities legitimize, destigmatize and therefore support or encourage drug addiction, rather than sending a message that everything must be done to stop drug use. “While cities like San Francisco and Seattle, both ravaged by substance abuse, have considered opening injection locations, New York City is the first to formally authorize such sites” reports National Review.

Best Buy, Levi’s Using Rittenhouse Acquittal to Further ‘Racial Trauma’ Narrative

Despite the acquittal and evidence supporting self-defense for teenager Kyle Rittenhouse, some large companies are using it to further a “racial trauma” narrative. Giant companies Best Buy and Levi Strauss “reportedly offered their employees counseling to those distressed over the verdict” reports Breitbart News.

Levi’s offered a session with a “racial trauma specialist” for workers distraught over the acquittal of Rittenhouse. Rittenhouse, who is white, was found not guilty in the shooting of three men, all of whom are also white because he was defending himself against the assailants. Nonetheless, the media and now businesses have turned the trial into a race-baiting issue.

The chief of diversity, equity and inclusion for Levi’s, Elizabeth Morrison, sent an email to employees of the San Francisco-based clothing company following the verdict:

“With the news that Kyle Rittenhouse was not convicted in the shooting of three individuals — two of whom lost their lives — during racial justice protests last year, this is a difficult day for many,” the email read.

“To help promote safety, sharing and to encourage healing, I’ll be hosting a fireside chat and Q&A with Dr. Jamila Codrington, a licensed psychologist and racial trauma specialist in early December,” the email stated. “Dr. J and I will talk about the mental and psychical impacts of back-to-back social and racial justice events and trauma coping mechanisms during our discussion.”

Best Buy has reportedly offered “mental health resources” and “counseling services” to employees distressed by the verdict. “The verdict in Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial stirs many emotions, and it’s another difficult moment for our nation,” reportedly wrote Mark Irvin, the chief inclusion, diversity, and talent officer for Best Buy.

“While these events can be challenging and deeply hurtful, I hope you will take a moment to reflect on the values that unite us as a company and as a nation,” Irvin said, according to The Post Millennial. “We can do better, as each of us as individuals, allies, and human beings press together for better outcomes.”

“I know events like these can take a toll on mental health and emotional well-being,” he stated. “Please know that Best Buy is here to support you.”
Irvin then provided links to “mental health resources” and “counseling services” that are offered by the company’s employee benefits.
