Liberals are in the grips of statue mania. The craze started with Confederate monuments, but after the first few toppled agitators realized how easy it was to convince politicians to remove historical pieces they didn’t like.
Now fringe leftists are calling for city-wide purges, demanding that “offensive” architecture be demolished.
Atlanta protesters were so amped up recently that they accidentally savaged the wrong statue. Breitbart reports:
“Protesters vandalized and attempted to take down the Peace Monument in Piedmont Park in Atlanta on Sunday, mistaking it for a pro-Confederate statue.
The protesters were marching in response to the violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday where one woman died after being deliberately hit by a car, and two law enforcement personnel were killed when the helicopter they were in crashed.”
That’s how crazy the average Democrat has become. Even the Peace Monument wasn’t spared from their wrath. Destroying Confederate statues suddenly seems less about their supposed offensiveness and more about the left’s belligerence.
“The Atlanta march traveled from Woodruff Park to Piedmont Park Sunday, where some damaged the Peace Monument, erected in 1911,” reads a blog on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution website. “The sculpture features an angel standing above a Confederate soldier, guiding him to lay down his weapon.”
Attack first, ask questions later. Is that the Democrats’ new motto?
