A Confederate statue in a North Georgia cemetery, that has been up for more than 100 years, was vandalized this week. Located at the Myrtle Hill Cemetery in Rome, Georgia, the statue of a Confederate soldier had its face smashed, hands 'surgically' cut and rifle taken on Wednesday night. 'It has been reported, the damage has been estimated and, yes, [we] are investigating,' Rome Police Department Lt. Danny Story said to ABC News.

Movements that start by destroying statues eventually murder people. That’ll be the next step by these loons.

This one took souvenirs. He is proud of his work. This one needs to be caught and publicly humiliated.

The biggest symbol of slavery still in existence is the Democratic Party.

It should be destroyed

He will proudly start bragging. Just a matter of time before he’s in jail.

My bet is the perp is not from Georgia. Probably a white Yankee pajama boy or femenista.

Yep. No different than the Taliban radicals who destroy religious icons, and later, begin beheading their opponents.

You really think they have the spine to do something like this?

A cemetery at that. No different than smashing headstones. The Nazis paved floors with Jewish headstones to rid themselves of the reminder of them.

It is important for people to understand and keep in mind that if they’ll do this to a confederate grave, they’ll do it to a grave at Arlington or anywhere else, to anybody else. No question about it.

It is clever, in the sense that very few of the political class has either the brain power or the stones to recognize what’s really happening and they cannot figure out a way to address this without being branded as confederate slave-holding sympathizer or whatever. That’s the purpose of the entire debacle, guaranteed these radical groups has a database of every known confederate cemetary, grave stars & bars corner on the map. This provides an opportunity to agitate, and gain publicity, stir shit up and generally cause trouble. Right out of the lefty playbook.

Pandora couldn’t stuff all the evils back in the box and Haley will never be able to contain or atone for what she started.

Agree on the likelihood of an outsider - think it's more likely to be an Antifa type Communist agitator, as was the case in New Orleans.

“No one forgets where he buries the hatchet”.
When you’ve buried the hatchet and everyone “heals”, life can move on.
This liberal attack on symbols of the past is both ongoing and continually divisive. Ripping down old statues offends some of the descendants. Demands to rename buildings and calling everyone who disagrees an evil bigot creates enemies among the living.
They don’t understand that the process of trying to erase history and a fake unified world is creating divisions.

Guess they don’t want the police to identify the statue.

” and Haley will never be able to contain or atone for what she started”

that’s what I’m saying.

And certain dreamers who think that she is going to be president one day are in for a rude shock.
