These protests that are continuing to take place across the country really aren't protests. They're riots and excuses for criminals to conduct violence, vandalism, and erase history.
I can understand that there may be some statues that maybe aren't such a good idea and need to be taken down, but when I say that, I mean a VERY slight few and I don't think they need torn down and destroyed like these idiots are doing.
But the problem is that these imbeciles are tearing down signs of what we have been through as a nation. Good or bad, it's our history.
Let me take just a moment to explain why this is important.
What is a sign? A sign is something that points toward something else. So if you were driving down the highway and you see a sign up ahead that says "Atlanta - 50 miles". That sign is not Atlanta or a representation of Atlanta, but it points towards Atlanta.
Likewise, a statue of someone like Abraham Lincoln, the President who helped free the slaves is not racist. Does the statue point to a time when we had slavery? Yes.
Does it mean we like slavery? No. The statue was erected to show how proud we are of eliminating slavery. Yet, because it people want to be triggered by every little thing in existence, they want it torn down and are planning to try and do so on Thursday.
On Tuesday, radical left D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton announced that she intends to introduce legislation to remove the statue.
“Although formerly enslaved Americans paid for this statue to be built in 1876, the design and sculpting process was done without their input, and it shows,” Norton said in a statement earlier in the day.
“This statue has been controversial from the start,” she said. “It is time it was placed in a museum.”
🚨TEAR DOWN PRESIDENT LINCOLN STATUE IN WASHINGTON DC 🚨
Hundreds of (mostly white) protesters have shown up.
Why? Because this statue honoring the signing of the emancipation proclamation is “racist.”
Where did the statue come from? It was paid for and erected by freed slaves. pic.twitter.com/SL1OA8IaMY

So here's what actually happened...
Tension is rising outside the Emancipation Statue in Lincoln Park as dark falls.
A handful of protesters are here, & they’re starting to lean over yellow caution tape to engage police officers standing guard over the statue. Many are asking why the police aren’t wearing masks. pic.twitter.com/tFZBkrFobD

Next time maybe they shouldn't announce when they plan on vandalizing statues.
