Christopher Columbus Monument Smashed to Combat ‘White Supremacy’

The New Fascist Democratic Party is rising in America.  This is not hyperbole.  This is fact.  People will say that I’m being extreme… but these people are either in denial or they are simply covering for the fascists. Here’s the latest proof.  Recently, the Baltimore City Council voted to remove the Confederate monuments in their city. This came after the racial tension that erupted in Charlottesville that resulted in a young woman’s death.  A few days after the vote,  a 44-foot-tall monument of Christopher Columbus that was over 200 years old was smashed with a sledgehammer. Why?  To combat a “culture of white supremacy.”  The Washington Times reports:

A YouTube channel titled “Popular Resistance” posted footage of men in hoodies destroying a monument to Columbus and his famous voyage in 1492. The individuals carried signs that read “Racism: Tear it down,” and “The future is racial and economic justice.”

The Baltimore Brew, an independent website run by veteran journalists, first reported on the crime, which took place near Herring Run Park.

“Racist monuments to slave owners and murderers have always bothered me,” a narrator identified as Tye says in his YouTube video. “Baltimore’s poverty is concentrated in African-American households, and these statues are just an extra slap in the face. They were built in the 20th century in response to a movement for African Americans’ human dignity. What kind of a culture goes to such lengths to build such hate-filled monuments? What kind of a culture clings to those monuments in 2017? The culture of white supremacy preceded the United States. It’s at the foundation of U.S. culture, business, bureaucracies and psychology.”

The wording that was destroyed read: “Sacred to the Memory of Chris. Columbus Oct. XII MDCC VIIIC.”  Well, those clowns really struck a blow against the pervasive racism in America, right?  Please.  Here’s a thought.  Instead of moral posturing and virtue signaling, what if people actually did something constructive to help minorities?  Why not drive into the inner city and find a great charity?  Why not volunteer to be a “big brother” or “big sister” to someone in need?

Or, here’s a really radical idea: Why not do something that doesn’t require you to hide your identity?

Watch a report below, and realize that the New Fascist Democratic Party is unAmerican and evil.

    Never understood why there were monuments or a holiday for Columbus when he NEVER set foot on N American soil.

      You need a Geography lesson. The Caribbean Islands Columbus visited and pillaged ARE in North America. Columbus and his crews brought syphilis to American Natives, and left many bastard children behind. Columbus did NOT “discover American,” any more than I “discovered Canada” the first time I traveled there… find other human beings ALREADY living there.
