Once again, “peaceful protesters” appeared in Washington, D.C. to destroy historical landmarks. Violent rioters assembled in Lafayette Park to vandalized St. John’s Church and tear down the Statue of Andrew Jackson. But President Trump and the secretary of the interior both promised retribution.
You might be wondering why there is such “enthusiasm” among Americans to tear down monuments, statues, and historical landmarks. Well, it’s not a grassroots movement, I can tell you that. This is the left’s last, desperate stab at influencing the election. They know their candidate, Joe Biden, is a train wreck. So, instead of trying to win over voters with the issues, they are trying to use fear and anger.
Leftists are funding the groups behind the riots, even providing legal support when they are arrested. The goal was to make Trump look bad, by either blaming the riots on him or condemning him if he took extreme measures to stop them. Either way, they’ve failed. Americans are disgusted by these acts of hateful anarchists. And the only cities truly suffering are ones run by Democrats.
Last night, yet another Democrat-funded riot targeted D.C. They vandalized St. John’s Church and tried to destroy a statue of President Andrew Jackson. But the president and the secretary of the interior had some strong words for them.
President Donald Trump and Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt both responded to the latest spate of violent riots that have resulted in the destruction of historical statues across the U.S. by saying that it would not be tolerated…
Trump tweeted, “Numerous people arrested in D.C. for the disgraceful vandalism, in Lafayette Park, of the magnificent Statue of Andrew Jackson, in addition to the exterior defacing of St. John’s Church across the street. 10 years in prison under the Veteran’s Memorial Preservation Act. Beware!”
Bernhardt tweeted, “I just left Lafayette Square where another so called ‘peaceful protest’ led to destruction tonight. Let me be clear: we will not bow to anarchists. Law and order will prevail, and justice will be served.” [Source: Daily Wire]
This was never about removing “racist” statues from our country. Hell, now BLM activists are calling for the destruction of churches and statues of Jesus Christ. This was a coordinated attempt by the left to sow chaos and fear across our country. To discourage Americans from voting or having national pride. This is how low they’ve stooped.
Violence and vandalisms are the last resort of losers. Much like an army burning fields as they retreat from invaders, Democrats are trying to destroy as much as they can—before their epic loss in November. Let’s be honest: winners don’t spray paint buildings, set fires, smash up cars, or tear down historic statues.
President Trump made a big threat when he referenced the Veteran’s Memorial Preservation Act. This law from 2003 aims to protect veteran memorials. Destruction of veteran’s memorials are punishable by ten years in prison. The WWII memorial was targeted by rioters as were other statues and monuments considered veterans’ memorials. Trump is letting these Democrat-funded anarchists know that they could face big penalties for what they are doing.
Do you think these 20-year-old bums getting paid by Democrat donors really know what they’re in for? Trump has been patient for weeks, demanding Democrat leaders do something about the chaos. He is letting America watch these liberals sit back and let their cities get destroyed. But soon enough, he will step in for the good of the country. Then these little idiots will realize just how screwed they are.
Just this morning, Trump made this promise:
Trump and Bernhardt aren’t mincing words. They said justice will be served. Any smart person will take that obvious clue and go home. But not these morons. They are fueled by hate, entitlement, and leftist lies. They will only learn, when the shackles are on their hands and feet.
