Monday, October 9, 2017, is Columbus Day, the day we celebrate Christopher Columbus’ discovery of the New World. President Trump announced the holiday without trashing the founding of America, much to the chagrin of the left, which sees Columbus as the arbiter of all evil in the Western Hemisphere. Among those who plan to take action is the left-wing terror group Antifa, which has announced a “deface Columbus Day” campaign.
According to PJMedia:
Violent left-wing anarchists have announced a nationwide campaign to deface Christopher Columbus statues this coming Monday.
Five Christopher Columbus statues have already been vandalized in New York City in recent weeks, according to Far Left Watch. In one case last month, vandals defaced a “larger-than-life” statue of Columbus in Central Park, leaving blood-red paint on his hands, and scrawled, “Hate will not be tolerated” and “#SomethingsComing” on its pedestal.
What is coming appears to be a coordinated campaign to destroy monuments all across the country on Columbus Day.
The NYC-based antifa group Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM) made the announcement on Thursday, September 21, calling on antifa groups nationwide to “decorate” their neighborhoods.
RAM, Far Left Watch explains, is “an extremely militant group that advocates for the violent redistribution of property” and for “the abolition of gender.”
Here’s just one of the videos posted by the group:

According to RAM, Columbus Day is “one of the most vile ‘holidays’ of the year,” despite the fact that a vast majority of Americans support the holiday.
Here’s what the group is calling for:
We are calling for groups to “decorate” their neighborhoods as they see fit: put up murals, wheatpaste posters, drop a banner, etc. On October 9th put a picture of your action on social media and use the hashtags below. With these actions multiplied around the country, we will make it unequivocally clear that revolutionaries will always stand with the indigenous!
The anarchists encouraged fellow law-breakers to record and broadcast their crimes by using the hashtags #F*ckColumbusDay and #DestroyColonialism.
As antifa has already announced its illegal intentions well ahead of time, elected officials and police departments across the country should not be blindsided by the rash of vandalism that is sure to come in the next few days.
As Steven Ahle noted here, “…Columbus not only did not own slaves but he was also Hispanic, so defiling his monuments is actually an act of racism.”
