Texas doesn’t much care for people damaging their properties, particularly the Alamo. When word that rioters were going to target the Alamo, Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush issued a simple warning: “Don’t mess with the Alamo.”
“The Alamo is the Shrine of Texas Liberty. And it will be defended. My office is closely watching the social media posts and rumors from protestors who are threatening to come to The Alamo… Rest assured we have already deployed, for several weeks and will continue to do so, the Alamo Rangers in partnership with SAPD, The Department of Public Safety and The National Guard to protect this sacred site. My message to the protestors is simple: Don’t mess with The Alamo.” George P. Bush, Texas Land Commissioner

The Texas Land Commissioner is the son of Jeb Bush.
Rioters and “protesters” have destroyed historical sites across America – much like ISIS destroyed ancient historical sites. From Confederate statues to Christopher Columbus, to other memorials that the ignorant protesters had no idea who they were in reference to. They just see something they want to destroy, so they destroy it.
But not the Alamo. When word came that rioters were targeting the infamous symbol of Texas liberty, authorities took notice and moved to keep it from happening.
One Twitter user claimed that armed citizens had formed a line around the historical site, another claimed he didn’t see anyone. The gist of the Twitter feeds was: if you mess with our Alamo, you will be sorry.

On May 30, a protester was arrested for vandalizing the Alamo Cenotaph in San Antonio. Armed citizens from the Texas Freedom Force Militia showed up there to protect it from further damage. Noah Escamilla, 25 was suspected of tagging the cenotaph with ‘white supremacy,’ ‘profit over people,’ and ‘The Alamo’ and downward facing arrows. That’s just the cenotaph in downtown San Antonio, not the Alamo itself.

Any protesters or rioters attempting to burn down the Alamo will not appreciate the result.
