Liberal terrorist smashes 200-year-old statue of Christopher Columbus

The left’s war on statues and history continues, and it’s not just Confederate statuary being targeted.  On Monday, Baltimore Brew reported that a 225-year-old statue of Christopher Columbus was destroyed by vandals.  The Brew further said the statue is believed to be the oldest in the world dedicated to the explorer.

According to the Brew:

A video posted today shows someone smashing the inscription at the base of the 44-foot-tall obelisk located at the intersection of Harford Road and Walther Avenue, across from Herring Run Park.

This morning the words on the statue – Sacred to the Memory of Chris. Columbus Oct. XII MDCC VIIIC – were unreadable, a hole smashed in the stone.

“Racism: Tear it down,” one sign leaning on the monument base says.

“The future is racial and economic justice,” said another sign that was lying in the grass.

Here’s video of the monument being destroyed, narrated by what appears to be one of those involved:

According to the YouTube description:

“Christopher Columbus symbolizes the initial invasion of European capitalism into the Western Hemisphere. Columbus initiated a centuries-old wave of terrorism, murder, genocide, rape, slavery, ecological degradation and capitalist exploitation of labor in the Americas. That Columbian wave of destruction continues on the backs of Indigenous, African-American and brown people.

“Racist monuments to slave owners and murderers have always bothered me. Baltimore’s poverty is concentrated in African-American households, and these statues are just an extra slap in the face. They were built in the 20th century in response to a movement for African Americans’ human dignity. What kind of a culture goes to such lengths to build such hate-filled monuments? What kind of a culture clings to those monuments in 2017?”

They’re not activists — they’re terrorists.

And at this point, the only difference between these thugs and ISIS is native language.

According to the Brew, Baltimore police say they are investigating the vandalism and say the perpetrators will be brought to justice:

“It’s dangerous and it’s also unnecessary,” spokesman T.J. Smith said at a media briefing, noting last week’s city-ordered removal of the Confederate monuments. “It’s something that has a process and the process was seen last week.”

Meanwhile reaction was swift in a city that has been abuzz with the issue of offensive monuments since the recent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va. to protest the removal of a Confederate monument there.

“I’m hoping it’s just a random act and hopefully not part of some bigger idea,” said Joe DiPasquale, president of the city’s Italian American Civic Club. “We’re going to be talking to the police about protection for all the statues in the city.”

“These crazy kooks will be exhuming our ancestors’ remains next,” one Facebook user said, according to the Brew.

Please — let’s not give them any ideas…
