Many have been concerned about the Monument Mob of radical leftists trying to literally pull down history and wipe out anything with which they feel offended.
That not only includes attacking or vandalizing monuments to confederates, but also those to George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses Grant, black union soldiers, famous abolitionists, WWII veterans memorials and even famous Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes, who had never been to this country and was himself held as a slave, whose experience influenced him to write about freedom. Their attacks show is isn’t about attacking confederate monuments but anything they perceive as symbols of America, which they made abundantly clear when they pulled down a statue of George Washington in Portland, wrapped it in American flags and set them on fire.
This is anarchy that has been given tacit license and justification by some Democrats and media.
President Donald Trump condemned these acts, as any proper leader should.
NBC’s Savannah Guthrie asked New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo about Trump’s remarks.

Cuomo actually defended the leftists ripping down statues, he said people were making a “statement” against racism. “It’s a healthy expression of people saying let’s get some priorities here and let’s remember the sin and mistake that this nation made and let’s not celebrate it.”
Healthy expression? To rip down the Founders like Washington? Burn the flag? Vandalize Lincoln and pull down Grant, two of the seminal people responsible for ending slavery? It isn’t about racism or slavery, it’s about anarcho-communism, creating chaos, erasing history and bringing down the American system, call it what it’s really all about and it’s insane of Cuomo to defend it.
"Healthy" take from the guy who thought sending thousands of people with Covid into nursing home was "healthy" is about right

Lawlessness leads to more lawlessness. These liberal leaders are rolling out the red carpet for criminals.
