This is not a temporary civil disturbance. The civil chaos we are witnessing is a highly organized political movement.
This is an ideological movement.
“It is not superficial. It is deep and profound. It has vast ambitions. It is insidious; it will grow. Its goal is to end liberal democracy and challenge Western civilization itself.”~ The real reason mobs across the country are tearing down American monuments
Having read Tucker Carlson’s article linked above, I just want to list some of the takeaways from what we are seeing all around the country…
Tearing Down Our Statues
Yesterday a mob attempted to knock down a statue of Andrew Jackson. They spray-painted the base, trying to knock the statue down. In large letters, you can see it says “killer” at the bottom.
City officials announced their plan to remove the statue of Teddy Roosevelt from outside New York’s Museum of Natural History. The bronze statue has stood there in the Theodore Roosevelt Rotunda facing Central Park since before the Second World War. Soon it will be gone.
In the cities of Richmond and St. Paul, Minn., they’ve torn down statues of Christopher Columbus. They hacked off his head in Boston, threw him in a lake in Richmond, Va., drenched him in red paint in Miami, and dragged him down from his pedestal in St. Paul, Minn. Protesters in cities around the United States have been tearing down, defacing and otherwise vandalizing statues of Christopher Columbus.
Boston’s mayor now says it’s time to remove a statue of Abraham Lincoln, the man who freed the slaves. It’s racist.
In Dallas, they pulled the Texas Ranger statue out of the airport after more than 50 years.
In Dearborn, Mich., they toppled the statue of the former mayor. They did the same thing in Philadelphia.
Nashville, they pulled down a statue of a former U.S. senator. Same in Albany.
In Oregon, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington were torn down.
In San Francisco, the mob demolished statues of Ulysses S. Grant, Junipero Serra, and Francis Scott Key. On the pedestal of the Key monument, they spray-painted, “Kill the colonizers” and “Kill whitey,” just in case you missed the point.
Last week a mob in downtown Washington, D.C. decided to tear down a statue of a man called Albert Pike. Pike was famous as a journalist and a poet and later as a prominent Freemason.
(and that’s only just some of the tearing down and defacement)
Never in American history have they been more emboldened than they are now.
Just this Monday afternoon, an activist called Shaun King issued the following demand on Twitter:
“All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus and his European mother and their white friends should also come down. They are a gross form of white supremacy created as tools of oppression, racist propaganda. They should all come down.”
Note that Shaun King is the most famous Black Lives Matter leader in this country.
Black Lives Matter is now More Popular Than Either Major Political Party
So, don’t be surprised when they come for your church. Why wouldn’t they?
No one is stopping them.
