Look, were here to speculate sometimes, it at least use to be a conspiracy forum.


I won't argue with you over this, its just a possibility.






Then let's go with that.

I agree, it could easily be a white supremacist who did this. To what aim? With what goal? There is only one possible goal here.

There is no hiding military actions that were illegal, no runs on gold that bankrupt socialist nations, no health department investigations revealing mismanagement or inaction. Or is there?

What is the goal?

I remember that!!! Im thirty minutes from Greenville so that was extra funny to me! Also remember those black kids that smeared swashtikas of feces on the bathroom walls?


I think the point was lost on most people here because they have this delusional vision of Mississippi being nothing but racist, rebel flag toting rednecks.

You have to wonder about the intelligence of somebody burning a statue.

Might as well drown it...



About the same intelligence as somebody putting up a statue.

It's all symbolism, important to somebody's mind.

Wtf. I tune out for a week to finish a film project i started a decade ago and all hell breaks loose.

After what years of impressive restraint by right winger types, it would appear the sjw's finally trolled this supreme white Oppressor enemy fantasy of theirs into exsistence. Whites supremacists were for decades perhaps even more marginalized than transgenders (whom constitute about .7% the population). And after how many years of open season on whitey theyre now at last gaining ground. Shame on sjw msm obama hillary etc (the NuNazi's) for starting all this # and resurging the NeoNazi's just so they could have a "legimate" enemy to fight and thus justify the very existence of their totalitarian movement ambitions. The PERSECUTION that started all this is 99.2816% on all of their hands and so shall all the blood that spills whochever team they be on.

Down with Identity Politick hypertribalist mind control divide & conquer bs. Enough is enough.

Arise Socio Agnosticism. Arise the alt/alt!

Abraham Lincoln monument torched in Chicago: ‘An absolute disgraceful act’


Abraham Lincoln has joined George Washington on the list of those targeted by Chicagoans in a national debate over Civil War-era monuments.

Alderman Raymond Lopez took to Facebook Wednesday night to decry a defaced statue of the nation’s 16th president in the Englewood neighborhood. The giant bust appears to have been damaged after someone in the 15th Ward sprayed and ignited a flammable liquid.

“What an absolute disgraceful act of vandalism. This bust of Abraham Lincoln, erected by Phil Bloomquist on August 31, 1926, was damaged & burned,” Mr. Lopez wrote, a local NBC affiliate reported. “If anyone has any information regarding this act, please contact the police or my office immediately.”

I blame Trump's rhetoric. He's the one, using his bully pulpit, that staked out a position of equivocation between confederate symbols and memorials to our founding fathers and others (Lincoln) who sought to preserve the union.


He was making the point that Washington and Jefferson owned slaves, and where does it end. If we delegitimize the founding fathers based on them owning slaves, it might lead to calls to abolish the constitution for it when all is said and done. A worthy goal for some, I'm sure.

Then Clinton won't make the list either. Plus JFK kinda got us in deep in Viet Nam too, so you're probably right.

You don't think this might be the doing of pro-Confederate folk? Their hatred for Lincoln is probably stronger than an anarchists general hatred of statues.

Just saying, look at motivation here. One side has been wanting statues removed for a few years and the other has been hating Lincoln for centuries.

No matter who did it, that really sucks.


I hardly ever agree with Abysha but she's got a very valid point here. Hatred of the "tyrant Lincoln" runs deep in the south.



Actually its not lincoln per se they dislike its his actions he took as president. Now personally I think the man was a racist,elitist , jerkoff who tossed his wife in a mental instutition for no good reason.
The mans own writings showed he also didnt think Blacks were equal to whites. HE had plans to deport them all as well at one time.
The man was not honest at all. Booth did America a service.

Yup!

Don't be surprised when we discover that secret agents from North Korea are in the United States stirring up all this racial trouble, to keep us distracted and misdirect our attention away from their Nuke program.

Interesting speculation, however, I would venture to say they don't have enough resources to do such a thing...China on the other hand.....
