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!
