Speaking earlier in the day, Minnesota Department of Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington said troopers would try to speak with a group that wants to tear down a statue of Christopher Columbus on the state capitol grounds.

But, at 5 p.m., the group tossed a rope around the statue and tugged it to the ground. Members of the crowd then danced and spit on the statue.

Columbus statues have been torn down or damaged by protesters in cities across the United States in the unrest that followed George Floyd’s killing including in Boston where a statue was beheaded.

Once a widely celebrated explorer credited with “discovering America,” Columbus’ legacy has grown controversial as more attention has been paid to the atrocities Columbus and his followers committed after coming to America.

Here’s the history behind the statue.

The left is trying to erase American history.

And in some places they are being allowed to do it.
