Marxists do. Communists do. Nazis do. Fascists do. Muslim terrorists do. ISIS does.
Our statues and monuments honor our history and our heroes, even if flawed. They represent who we are and where we have been. They recall the greatness of the nation and people who built it. They are important reminders of our shared experience. Democratic nations respect and preserve their monuments for these reasons. Democracies build, but leftism destroys, whether it be communism, socialism or fascism. The left knows the USA is the greatest country in the history of the world, but they hate it because they are tyrants. The destruction we are seeing in the US from Marxist traitors is a direct result of this and an attempt to overthrow the country, erase history and start over. We are in a slowly simmering civil war, and it must be stopped. The statue smashing is but one tactic by the left in this war. The others being silencing of free speech, bullying and “canceling”, rioting in the streets, and intimidating institutions and businesses to toe their “woke” line. Fight it at every turn, or give in to the leftist mob.
