Black Lives Matter claimed they wanted to take down statues of Confederate generals.
But that was just the start and now Americans are learning some disturbing news.
And that’s because Black Lives Matter tore down the one statue that had all hell breaking loose.
Around the country, cities and state governments are racing to remove statues honoring Confederate generals that fought in the Civil War.
Democrat elected officials fell over themselves to respond to Black Lives Matter’s false claims that America is a racist nation and purging their localities of these statues was one step towards so-called “healing.”
During a 2017 press conference in Trump Tower after the tragedy in Charlottesville where a white nationalist murdered Heather Heyer after protestors demanded the University of Virginia remove a statue of Robert E. Lee, President Trump warned this would lead to left-wing revolutionaries tearing down statues of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson because they once owned slaves.
“Is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You have to ask yourself where does it stop?” President Trump wrote on social media.
“George Washington was a slave owner. So will George Washington lose his status? Are we gonna take down statues of George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? Do you like him, because he was a major slave owner. Are we gonna take down his statue?” President Trump added.
And contrary to the fake news media narrative that this infamous press conference spawned, the President condemned white nationalists and neo-Nazis and separated them from the Americans that showed up to defend the right of those statues to stand because they are part of American history for better or worse.
“So it’s fine. You’re changing history, you’re changing culture and I’m not talking about the neo-nationalists or the neo-Nazis because they should be condemned totally. But you had people in that group other than neo-Nazis, other than white nationalists, ok? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly,” the President added.
President Trump’s prediction came true in Portland where rioters lit the head of a statue of George Washington on fire, vandalized the monument with Black Lives Matter graffiti and yanked the statue of America’s first – and most agree, greatest – President to the ground.
KOIN 6 in Portland reported, “A separate group of about 20 people met at NE Sandy Boulevard and NE 57th Avenue around 10 p.m. at the site of a large bronze statue of George Washington. Some wrapped the statue’s head in an American flag and lit the flag on fire. Their numbers grew over the next hour until there were enough people to pull the statue to the ground. They quickly scattered. A KOIN 6 News crew found the statue face down and covered in graffiti. Portland police arrived a short time later.”
Black Lives Matter and other leftist radicals don’t want to remove Confederate monuments because they are racist.
They want to remove those statues because they are the low-hanging fruit.
As the rioters in Portland showed, they have no intention of stopping at erasing the Confederacy.
They want to wipe out all American history because destroying a nation’s past is the first step in destroying the nation.
