The Thompson Elk, which has stood in downtown Portland since 1900, was set on fire by protesters last night:
More men should shoot those men who just want to see the world burn.
And if it had?
We need to STOP defending people who want to remove Confederate statues. Even through legal means.
Democrats are evil scum.
Roosevelt Elk, named after Teddy.
Must be a MeToo thing.
That elk was horny.
Must be that da word in da hood be dat da Elks’s Club be White Crackers.
Wrong group protest, this was done by the radical militant arm of PETA...
Same communist ideas.
It seems like the only statue in the whole country that’s safe is the Lenin statue in Seattle. Should we be surprised?
In their way, the militant PETA members are no better than the thugs of BLM or Antifa, and are equally resistant to any blandishment of reason of logic.
When righteousness become zealotry, the mob mentality is in full control, and like a swarm of locusts, nothing in their path is safe or escapes harm.
“No, he wasn’t racist but he was looking at me funny”
Did you check out the Twitter profile of this “Tuck Woodstock” person who kept warm by the elk fire while NWA played in the background?

To a morally- and mentally-addled person such as this, burning an elk statue probably makes pretty good sense.
Distant relative of the Whitetail deer? These are city folk, so maybe just a mistake in identity. “They all look the same” will be their excuse.
The Oregon (OregonLive) reported on the Elk burning with a single sentence in a protest article. The majority of the article criticized the police. Pure Pravda.
It was put up by white people, so it’s gotta go.
Beware of the snowflake karmalanche heading for Democrats.
