Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) took a stand today against the pulling down of historical monuments.

We’ve already seen one person grievously injured in one such effort by BLM protesters pulling down a confederate statue in Portsmouth, Virginia.

But they’re pulling down any statue the left finds offensive, regardless of the history. Because suddenly we are in the middle of leftist Stalinist revisionism. All things that they find offensive must be purged and done away with.

Cruz called that out in the destruction of a statue of Christopher Columbus in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The left of course flipped out at him for saying that, including Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Cruz busted her with the facts.


Nicely done! A complete rewriting of history. But that’s what this effort is about, it’s to demonize Columbus to taint the very origin of the United States, an effort Marxists and radicals have been about for year.

Here’s a little more about how they are following in the steps of the KKK who used to try to stamp out monuments to Italians and Catholics.


At what point does the insanity stop? The people who claim they care about black people are vandalizing monuments to Abraham Lincoln, abolitionists and black people.
