. . . and them fuckers will move the goalposts and take the whole damn enchilada. Remember way back last week when Baltimore tore down those Confederate monuments to prevent anyone else from tearing them down first?
Vandals smashed a 225-year old monument to Christopher Columbus in Baltimore early Monday morning. The edifice is documented as the oldest still standing in the nation dedicated to the explorer, the Baltimore Brew first reported.
The monument is located directly across the street from Herring Run Park, northeast of Lake Montebello. It was built by Frenchman Chevalier d’Anemours, or d’Anmour, at Belmont, his 50-acre estate near Harford Road and North Avenue.
According to Baltimore Brew, an online video shows an individual smashing the base, which contained the inscription: Sacred to the Memory of Chris. Columbus Oct. XII MDCC VIIIC. The vandals destroyed nearly all the text on the base of the 44-foot-tall obelisk.
The vandal left a sign by the destruction, saying “Racism: Tear it down,” and another sign saying “The future is racial and economic justice.”
The vandalism comes in the wake of Baltimore authorities tearing down monuments of Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee last week after violent events, focused on the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, Virginia occurred.
“Vandals” is the right word. In 455 AD a tribe of barbarians called the Vandals sacked and looted Rome.
But wait! There’s more!
A 25-year-old man was arrested for allegedly planning to bomb a Confederate statue at a Houston park with explosives, federal prosecutors said Monday.
A park ranger caught Andrew Schneck kneeling in front of a statue of Confederate Gen. Richard Dowling at Hermann Park Saturday. He was carrying two small boxes that contained duct tape, a timer and wires, according to a criminal complaint.
After the ranger demanded Schneck place the items on the ground, Schneck took a sip from a plastic bottle and then immediately spit it out, the complaint alleges.
The ranger then called the police after noticing the materials Schneck was carrying in the box, the complaint states.
The clear liquid turned out to be a white powdery substance that was found in a small black aluminum tube. Exams of the materials revealed they were nitroglycerin and Hexamethylene triperoxide diamine (HMTD), the charges said.
HMTD is a substance that is commonly used by suicide bombers and terrorists as a powerful explosive, according to the American Chemical Society. Nitroglycerin is also a dangerous and powerful explosive.
Authorities believe the materials Schneck had in his possession could have produced powerful explosives, the charges state.
Anyone else sensing a theme here?
The Ctrl-Left will not stop. There is no concession that will satisfy them. The Ctrl-Left will take whatever you give them and then immediately begin demanding more. There is no stopping place. The Ctrl-Left will keep going until they control your very thoughts.
These things never end well. When they have killed all their “enemies” they will start killing each other. Just ask Maximilien Robespierre or Leon Trotsky.
I’ve been asleep all day so I haven’t caught up with the news, but this quote seems appropriate for all occasions (via Don Surber):
“Let’s be honest, the people who are currently outraged are the same people who have always been outraged,” said Ms. Hicks, 35, a lifelong Republican who lives in Boston. “The media makes it seem like something has changed, when in reality nothing has.”
Yay, another S.O.O.T and on the eve before we all go blind, j/k.
Apologies to my Twit pals if this keeps showing up on your timelines, I’ve had itchy spammy finger today, so may as well do it here too. Great video to share for your twitidiot dumbass followers and followees. The news coverage on Boston was horrible.
Probably safe to call this S.O.O.T too 😀
Oh, and my new favorite parody account, “Bannen” seems to have the same snare trap as “Spicier” LOL !
Days like today is why God created alcohol.
