Unhinged, America-hating leftists toppled a statue of Thomas Jefferson in front of a high school in Portland, Oregon this weekend.
Media reports are calling these people protesters. They’re not protesters.
They’re fanatics who want to destroy American history.
The Daily Mail reports:
Thomas Jefferson statue in front of Portland high school is downed by protesters as several monuments linked to slavery are defaced and removed during demonstrations
A statue of Thomas Jefferson outside an Oregon high school named for him was toppled over by a group of protesters during a demonstration this weekend.
On Sunday, a crowd of protesters gathered outside of Jefferson High School in Portland ahead of a march organized over the death of George Floyd.
As the crowd of more than 1,000 residents left for a nearby park, a smaller group of protesters reportedly arrived and pulled down the Thomas Jefferson statue.
Footage of the incident shared by PDX_Resistance shows at least nine people wearing face masks standing outside the high school near the statue.
A rope is tied around the statue’s neck and one member of the group appears to use a hammer to loosen the structure.
After a few moments of tugging, the statue slams onto the concrete ground as the group cheers and applauds.
This local video report includes footage of the toppling:
This is not about George Floyd. This is about radical leftists.
“We’re taking this city back.”

The far left has been emboldened by Democrats and the media. It has to stop.
