Lincoln Memorial Vandalized With Red Spray Paint

Disrespect for American history and heritage is apparently a new thing for some people. After vandals pulled down a Confederate statue in North Carolina this week, someone vandalized the Lincoln Memorial.

The Hill reports:

Lincoln Memorial vandalized with spray paint

The Lincoln Memorial in Washington was vandalized with red spray paint.

The graffiti found on a pillar at the monument appeared to say “f— law,” the National Park Service told local station NBC 4 News.

A preservation crew is already working to remove the graffiti, which was discovered early Tuesday morning, the NPS said.

The crew is applying a “mild, gel-type architectural paint stripper” to remove the red paint without damaging the underlying stone, according to the report.

The park service is still investigating the matter.

The vandalism comes amid a public debate over Civil War statues and memorials honoring the Confederacy.

White supremacist groups converged on Charlottesville, Va., to protest the removal of a state of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee on Saturday, which led to violence.

The vandal obviously wasn’t very smart…

What will be next?
