History-hating radicals were at it again, this time in New York City, where a statue of Christopher Columbus in Central Park was defaced and a threat left at its base.
From NY Post:
A vandal defiled a larger-than-life statue of Christopher Columbus in Central Park on Tuesday, leaving “blood”-red paint on the explorer’s hands and scrawling “Hate will not be tolerated” on its pedestal.
The vandal also left an apparent threat at the base of the 7-foot-tall bronze: “#somethingscoming.”
A worker for the Central Park Conservancy, the nonprofit which oversees maintenance in the park, discovered the vandalized statue, located in the southern portion of the park at the foot of The Mall walkway near Center Drive, around 7 a.m. and called police, authorities said.
A paper sign was also plastered to the pedestal that read “Save your soul” with the hashtag “#somethingscoming.”
People who saw the damage termed it ‘disgraceful’ and ‘destructive’ noting there are legal ways to protest.
Naturally, the radical left Mayor of New York City and the Che-loving (yes, really) City Council Speaker are all for statue removal and being Satlinesque.
Mayor Bill de Blasio recently assembled a commission to review and recommend the removal of any “oppressive” monuments.
City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito urged that the 76-foot structure honoring Columbus at Columbus Circle be reviewed for potential removal.
“I would definitely encourage them to take a look at that one as well,” Mark-Viverito said at the time in reference to the statue.
Statues are a little like guns, in that they are inanimate. They can cause no harm, the only harm is from whatever a human being imposes upon it.
Somehow people managed to live and survive, with these statues being there before the hysteria hit.
How were they ever able to do that?
And what do you do after you remove the statues and still find that still does not assuage the anger of the left?
It’s already clear they want to go after not just Confederate statues and Columbus, but Jefferson, Washington and others as well. Anything they think shows the evilness of the fascist United States. And not just statues, but street names, college names and anything at all potentially offensive.
At what point does it stop?
