(abcnews)-The Lincoln Memorial was vandalized with bright-red graffiti early Tuesday morning at around 4.30 a.m.

Officials with the National Park Service (NPS) said the red spray paint appears to state “[expletive] law” on one of the memorial’s columns overlooking the National Mall. Another instance in silver spray paint was also discovered on a Smithsonian wayfinding sign in the 1400 block of Constitution Avenue.

Pics there ^

This happened apparently.
So it's fair game on all monuments/statues ?

Stupidity running wild in America.

The downward spiral continues.......

Oh, *cough cough* um what I mean is...

That's terrible. No one wants complete chaos breaking out.

It's far better to have order in a completely corrupt totally hypocritical society based on lies than for kids to start vandalizing everything we hold dear (hurting our fantasies and spitting on our idols).

I blame all these new games that cost 5000$ to buy all the good stuff so you can play properly.
When we were kids games just cost 40$ or 50$ once and then you got to play the full thing forever.
No wonder these kids are pissed. I'm pissed too!

All's that comes to mind is the Scripture 'as in the days of Noah'

The destruction of our nation will come from within. My opinion.

What I'm wondering is where is the line with the whole statue thing.

I'm not stupid enough to think removing a statue is erasing history. I'm also not stupid enough to think all the statues are there for well intending reasons.

What about the pyramids? They were possibly built with slaves and even if not the society there did use slavery. Should they be torn down?

What about the remnants of Rome? Appreciating anything Roman has in some circles became synonymous with white nationalism. Should we tear down the ruins of Rome because they used slavery as well?

I could go on.

Where's the line? Where does it stop?

I don't know how I feel about this one. I'm not motivated to have a horse in this race. I'm not offended on behalf of others so I don't mind the statues. As far as I know there's no statues directly related to anything specific from my own ancestry in the US so that's not a thing for me either. I don't really care about this one. Just don't replace anything that resembles something real with "unoffensive" abstract art, that stuff's ghastly.

Oh, I do care about one statue solely for my own personal amusement. There's a statue of William Tecumseh Sherman in DC. They need to leave that one alone. Dude was awesome.

I think Kim Jong is smarter than we think. He decided not to start a war with America because when he turns on CNN, he sees that Americans are revving up for a civil war that will get the job done for him. Sad, isn't it?

I just figured out how Atlantis sealed its fate. Some people were jealous of all the statues and it festered into pure hatred and thus they began to tear them down. The rest weren't too happy about that and tried to stop them and fought back. Near the end they realized their mistakes but alas it was already too late.

It will be interesting to find out the political beliefs of the perpetrators. Have a sneaking feeling we will be surprised perhaps?
