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!

Tim Scott Slams Biden For Executive Order Stealing From His Police Reform Bill

Published

on

On Wednesday evening, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) slammed President Biden for apparently stealing key pieces of Scott’s police reform bill, the JUSTICE Act, which stalled in the Senate in 2020 over opposition from Democrats.

“After the radical ‘defund the police’ movement helped create the current crime wave, President Biden is pursuing a partisan approach to many of the exact same policy solutions I proposed in the JUSTICE Act just two years ago. The fact is Democrats used a filibuster they call racist to block my reforms that they’re now embracing,” Scott said in a statement.

“While my proposal added funding to help local law enforcement comply with higher standards, the Democrats’ proposal sets departments up for failure by issuing unfunded federal mandates,” he added. “Making it harder for police to do their jobs to the best of their ability should be a nonstarter, yet that’s exactly what the Biden plan does. I’m disappointed that the president who campaigned on unity has once again fallen into the trap of divisive politics.”

Among many other similarities between the JUSTICE Act and Biden’s executive order, they both would have created a database for law enforcement officer misconduct, created a database for use-of-force by officers, and banned chokeholds.

President Biden has a long history of presenting other people’s work as his own. When Biden was a student at Syracuse Law School in 1965, he plagiarized 5-pages from a law review journal. During his first failed presidential campaign in 1988, Biden repeatedly plagiarized from speeches by multiple politicians. Even Biden’s “Build Back Better” slogan was stolen from a United Nations initiative.

Beto O’Rourke Interrupts Greg Abbott Press Conference On Texas Shooting

Published

on

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, a Democrat candidate for Texas governor, interrupted a press conference led by Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) and needed to be escorted out by law enforcement as Abbott mourned the deaths of nearly two dozen children and teachers who were killed by a school shooter the day before.

Abbott began the press conference by detailing what was known about the shooter who opened fire at Robb Elementary and killed at least 19 children and 2 teachers before being killed by law enforcement.

O’Rourke then approached the stage where Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Sen. Ted Cruz and others were standing.

“The time to stop the next shooting is right now and you are doing nothing. You are offering us nothing,” O’Rourke said. “This is totally predictable when you choose not to do anything.”

Cruz told O’Rourke to “sit down and don’t play this stuff.”

“Please get his a** outta here,” a man on stage told law enforcement.

“Sir, you are out of line. Please leave this auditorium” a man yelled to O’Rourke. “I can’t believe. You’re a sick son of a b****, you would come to a deal like this to make a political issue.”

O’Rourke continued to yell back at those on the stage and was forced to be escorted out by law enforcement.

“There are family members crying as we speak. There are family members whose hearts are broken. There’s no words that anybody shouting can come up here and do anything to heal those broken hearts. Every Texan, every American has a responsibility,” Abbott said after O’Rourke’s interruption. “We need to focus not on ourselves and our agendas, we need to focus on the healing and hope that we can provide to those who have suffered unconscionable damage to their lives and loss of lives.”

“Some physical wounds that were sustained by the officers, they’re going to heal in the coming days. The mental and emotional wounds are far harder to see, and last far longer. The state of Texas working with federal and local officials in agencies, we’re going to be here for a long, long time,” Abbott added. “And one key point that we will focus on is making sure that everybody in this community has the access they need – for as long as they need it – to address the mental and emotional healthcare needs that they have.”
