The controversy about Confederate symbols continues. While the debate goes on, Leftists are taking matters into their own hands. They’re vandalizing statues. They’re tearing them down.
In Houston, a young man took it upon himself to express himself with explosives.
Reuters has the story:
“Authorities in Houston charged a 25-year-old man on Monday with trying to blow up a Confederate statue, federal prosecutors said, in the latest development amid demonstrations and fierce debate about race and the legacy of America’s Civil War.
Word of the arrest of Andrew Schneck came just hours after the University of Texas at Austin said it removed four statues tied to the Confederacy from its campus because they had become ‘symbols of modern white supremacy and neo-Nazism.’
… Federal prosecutors said in a statement that on Saturday night a park ranger spotted Schneck kneeling in bushes in front of the General Dowling Monument in Houston’s Hermann Park.
In Schneck’s possession were a timer, wires, duct tape and two types of explosive including nitroglycerin, according to the prosecutors who described it as one of the world’s most powerful explosives. The items could have been used to make a viable explosive device, the prosecutors’ statement said.“
It would seem the radical leftist movement against America’s history is only interested in escalating. Instead of talking through the real issues of history and remembering the problems of the past, they want to generate more violence.
Why won’t the Left trust the American system of checks and balances to do the right thing?
Why is the Left so violent?
