Over Thanksgiving, when millions of Americans were celebrating with their families, historical monuments in various parts of the country were being vandalized and even toppled.
This looks like the work of far left radicals. The fact that it happened on Thanksgiving is no accident.
USA Today reports:
Protesting America’s past? Statues of former presidents, other historical monuments vandalized in 4 states over Thanksgiving
Historical monuments and statues have been graffitied or toppled in four cities since Wednesday — seemingly in protest of America’s past.
The statues and buildings vandalized on Wednesday and Thursday appear to have been targeted in protest of colonialism, gentrification and capitalism.
The words “land back” were spray-painted on statues and buildings in multiple cities. The LANDBACK campaign is an Indigenous movement against white supremacy and for Indigenous food sovereignty, housing, and clean air and water.
In Chicago, vandals tried but failed to topple a park statue of President William McKinley early Wednesday using a rope tethered to a car, police said.
McKinley was president from 1897 to 1901 and his push for westward expansion is now widely criticized as racist, for pushing Indigenous people off their land, WBBM-TV reported.

Antifa extremists toppled and defaced a monument to dead veterans in a southeast Portland cemetery. They wrote "F— USA," "EAT SH—" & drew anarchist symbols. There were no arrests. #antifa #PortlandRiots https://t.co/wSsysp6CXr

These people hate America. There is no other explanation.
