Well comrades it look like this glorious cultural revolution is kicking into high gear . It is Portland so Im not to surprised that this would happen.

But its a bad sign of the times as the CANCEL CULTURAL REVOLUTION kicks into high gear on all fronts.

Protesters toppled a statue of Thomas Jefferson in front of a high school Sunday night during a Black Lives Matter demonstration in Portland, Oregon.

Demonstrators gathered Sunday night outside Jefferson High School in Northeast Portland to protest the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man whose police-custody death in Minneapolis sparked a wave of national unrest.

According to The Oregonian, more than 1,000 protesters marched to Alberta Park and a smaller group stayed behind and toppled the statue onto the ground

Well this is a sure sign common core education in Amerika has failed on the fronts of history. Because whilst there are many statues that may be a sign of oppression, it’s odd they’d topple one of a man who preached openly that all men are equal.

Getting a bit ridiculous. I remember back a few years when the first Lee statue was removed.

Was a little foreshadowing to what was to come.

Have hope I was already leaving the dems around 2016 ...everyday of these last few months have been one redpill after another for me . If you watch the video Tim talks about how this insanity is pushing moderates to Trump. I think there is a growing silent majority that realize that this is absolute madness.

Or common core is a success for those that wanted this to happen not to mention university indoctrination centers.

Lots of useful idiots indoctrinated to carry out the agenda.

When a communist revolution takes over the first thing they do is destroy the history that the populace is accustomed to. They replace it with their own monuments, most are contrived in the moment and are meaningless. Some are impactful only as a reminder of the world of chaos from which the communists offer a way out.

They use a particular section of society called the "useful idiots." These are the leftists and anarchists, criminals, gangsters, and anyone you can pay to create havoc. Any catalyzing event will do. George Floyd's death is nothing more than a tool. A means to an end and there will be many more deaths before this is over. War is next on the horizon if we don't put an end to this usurpation of society by clueless moneyed elites and communist agitators who are well-funded in yuan-denominated assets.

Romans owned slaves. Should we destroy their landmarks and statues in museums. What about the Mayans. They performed human sacrifices. Should we destroy their temples.

Why is Jefferson fair game and those two examples are not.

Sounds like those idiots in The U.S. who burnt all The Beatles records back in the 60's . They got upset with what John Lennon had said.

Childish behaviour.

Apparently none of you are outraged or care enough to do anything but be super annoyed online about it. So, expect to see more. Just a hop skip and a jump to the Vets now. More complacency will totally win the day. Idiocy indeed.

I thought this thread was about what is happening in America.

Who mentioned The Romans and Mayans ?

Anyone buying slave made products at cheap prices, in a way, owns slaves.

Wal-Mart. Amazon. Most everything on eBay.
Certainly every major clothing company.
Most sneakers.

I'd wager 90% of the clothing these people wear to their riots was made by slave labor...

Destruction of public property is against the law.., punishable by a fine or prison or both.
