Now The Vandals Are Attacking Statues Of Catholic Saints

As President Trump said, the totalitarian mob rule of removing statues people find offensive has a slippery slope descending into darkness.

On top of people calling for the removal of George Washington’s statue and the Jefferson Memorial, vandals in California have pointed their crosshairs at recently-canonized St. Junipero Serra.

    I have found a statue that deeply offends me. TAKE IT DOWN!

      No, no, no.

      We must keep up the statues of heroes like him, Karl Marx, Lenin and Mao!

      It isn’t even a good likeness.

        It doesn’t matter as long as the “artist” who was paid for it was a party member.

    • Funny, I find myself looking back on those days with nostalgia compared to the hard-core commies in power today. At least Trudeau Senior had a libertarian streak in him and he did in fact have a brain. His spoiled son is more like NK’s fatty lazy Kim.

    “Paul Ryan, Carly Fiorina, John Kasich, Lindsey Graham, and John McCain were all named in the latest Wikileaks release, and apparently were in the tank to not only ensure Trump lost the election, but to undermine him if he won; and that’s exactly what they’re doing.
    This is a clear cut case of TREASON and should be treated as such.”

    I never thought I’d say this but the Preppers/SHTF folks are making more and more sense. The West is going down the tubes.

    • They’re attacking inanimate objects — made of wood, concrete, granite, or bronze. Remember when people used to laugh when the “Paleostinians” and “Muzzelems” practice these sorts of superstitions? “Progressive” ideology goes in the same direction — backwards.

      When I was watching that young woman repeatedly kicking, with all her strength, a downed statue in a recent video, there was honestly only one thought that went through my mind: “That poor ignorant woman is going to break the bones in her foot (unless she’s wearing steel-reinforced boots) — the statue is probably made of bronze!”.

  • Because leftists are anti-Christian.

      And anti-Jewish, particularly the JINOs.

    Yeah, never mind that this so-called saint massacred and enslaved the local native population. This is one saint they could have done without.

      Evidence for your belief appears to be lacking. On the other hand if it did occur, it was for the improvement and betterment of the Natives.
