Lincoln Memorial vandalized with explicit graffiti
abc news ^ | August 15, 2017 | SAISHA TALWAR DAKSHAYANI SHANKAR

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.

Work to remove the graffiti is already underway using a mild, gel-type architectural paint stripper, according to the NPS. The gel won’t affect the preservation of the memorial’s historic stone.

The crew will apply the treatment and let it set on the stone for approximately an hour, then rinse it with “clean, potable” water, according to the NPS. The process is repeated until “all evidence of the graffiti is gone.”

This isn’t the first instance of vandalism on the Lincoln Memorial or other national monuments.

In July 2013, the giant statue of the 16th president was splashed with green paint on the left pant leg. The Washington Post reported that this was the first incident of vandalism on the monument since its dedication in 1922.

The door is open on monuments— isn’t it? It’s ok? You desecrate our Southern heritage and you see no reaction?

Antifa has “marked” it’s next target for removal, the Lincoln memorial. This is their goal, to eliminate all physical evidence of our past and history. To change the truth and make it a lie. It’s called Fascism, the very thing that claim to be against. Fascism is at the very heart of the Democrat Party, and Antifa is demonstrating this to the world

It’s the South African model:

You first have to destroy the heritage.

And THAT is what they’re doing, there:

On all the Universities they attack and obliterate the monuments to all the white people; paint, chisels and fire.

Before you destroy a people physically you have to soften them up:

You have to obliterate their sense of HERITAGE before they’re willing to all pass away.

But THAT is the ultimate objective.

Those so ignorant of Lincoln history will next demand that the Emancipation Proclamation be destroyed. These people are below imbecilic levels.

Back in the day when someone with a name like that showed up to work at some farm or restaurant in rural America the boss would ask “So what’s your name?”, “SAISHA TALWAR DAKSHAYANI SHANKAR”

“We’ll just call you Sally”

“Now, go in the back and help Bob”

NEXT..?

I can see no logical reason why they wouldn't eventually find their way, here.

In fact they're probably planning it out, right now.
