Columbus Day Vandalism Planned for Social Justice

An Antifa group is calling for a national campaign of Columbus Day vandalism of monuments.

Organized Columbus Day vandalism against statues and plaques is a criminal conspiracy. Will there be any serious efforts on the part of law enforcement to deter the destruction and protect the monuments?

I’m not optimistic. More than likely the media will treat the vandalism as legitimate free speech protected by the First Amendment. And law enforcement will follow that interpretation.

PJ Media reports, “Antifa Group Plans Nationwide ‘Deface Columbus Day’ Actions for Monday.

Violent left-wing anarchists have announced a nationwide campaign to deface Christopher Columbus statues this coming Monday.

Five Christopher Columbus statues have already been vandalized in New York City in recent weeks, according to Far Left Watch. In one case last month, vandals defaced a “larger-than-life” statue of Columbus in Central Park, leaving blood-red paint on his hands, and scrawled, “Hate will not be tolerated” and “#SomethingsComing” on its pedestal.

What is coming appears to be a coordinated campaign to destroy monuments all across the country on Columbus Day.

The NYC-based antifa group Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM) made the announcement on Thursday, September 21, calling on antifa groups nationwide to “decorate” their neighborhoods.

According to Far Left Watch, RAM is “an extremely militant group that advocates for the violent redistribution of property” and for “the abolition of gender.”

The militant group recently hosted an “Our Enemies in Blue” anti-police workshop at its branch in Brooklyn, NY.
