Unhinged leftists have destroyed a statue of George Washington in Portland, Oregon.
These people have no respect for America. They don’t even like America. Their behavior speaks loud and clear.
They burned an American flag, too.
This is just unacceptable.
The Hill reports:
George Washington statue toppled, American flag burned by Portland protesters
A statue of George Washington that stood on the lawn of the German American Society in Northeast Portland was toppled by protesters Thursday night as demonstrations continue following the killing of George Floyd, local KATU reports.
A U.S. flag was seen burning at the head of the statue of the first U.S. president before it was pulled down by protesters using a rope.
KOIN reports that Thursday marked day 21 of demonstrations for racial justice and police reform in Portland, Oregon. Two groups — Rose City Justice and Lavender Caucus — hosted a sit-in rally at Jefferson High School in the evening, before a separate group of people met at the site of the large statue of Washington around 10 p.m. About 30 to 40 people were there at the time the statue was taken down, KATU reports.

The bronze statue was spray-painted with the words “genocidal colonist” and several vulgar words, according to images on social media. A second American flag was laid over the toppled bronze Washington statue and set on fire.

Sickening, isn’t it?
Portland wakes up to see what antifa did overnight. A century old statue of George Washington was toppled & set on fire with an American flag. “White fragility,” “Damn white men” & other messages are written on the moment. On the ground nearby: “Defund white men.” pic.twitter.com/zjrsZHJC9o
