Anonymous Plans Ops to Take Down Confederate Monuments at 11 Sites Friday
pjmedia.com ^ | 8/16/2017 | Bridget Johnson

The hacktivist collective Anonymous is planning a "Denouncement Day" this Friday to "denounce the Confederacy, to denounce racism, bigotry and hate," saying "it is time to take down these monuments of hate ourselves."

Supporters plan to gather at 6 p.m. EST at the statue of Rear Adm. Raphael Semmes in Mobile, Ala., the Confederate Soldiers Monument in Little Rock, the Jackson Guards Memorial in Jacksonport, Ark., the Searcy Confederate Memorial in Searcy, Ark., the Our Confederate Dead monument in Munn Park in Lakeland, Fla., the Confederate Monument in Piedmont Park in Atlanta (which was defaced with spray paint this week), the Corinth Confederate Monument in Corinth, Miss., the Confederate Soldiers Monument at the Bryan County Courthouse in Durant, Okla., the Confederate Monument in Lynchburg, Va., the Mecklenburg Confederate Soldier in Boydton, Va., and the Robert E. Lee sculpture in Charlottesville, Va.

Additional locations could be added as suggested, the release from Anonymous said.

In a video titled "We are Angry," prefaced with footage of protesters toppling a Confederate soldier statute in Durham, N.C., this week, Anonymous calls it "a sad state of affairs when in the year 2017 we still have Nazi party flags flying high and terrorists still killing for the Nazi cause."

Can’t wait till they get to a Thomas Jefferson statue and someone in the DNC says, “Hold on there...” movements like this one will consume themselves, like the Red Guards in China and the radical French revolutionaries did in their times. Shame a lot of blood will get spilled before it’s over.

I don’t believe this for a second.

Anonymous is based in 4chan, and when the SJWs moved in there, and tried to force them to be politically correct, it turned the vast majority into Trump supporters. Since that time, they have been very anti-leftist.

As a group they do not support Antifa.

However, other groups have frequently *pretended* to represent Anonymous. Sometimes radical leftists, and sometimes even governments, have tried to use them as cover.

Prison for anyone who participates in this, plus fines large enough to replace the damaged statues. Repeat as necessary until the thugs are bankrupt or all behind bars.

I don't think they have much to worry about. They and the other groups have a generous Sugar Daddy

Two governors the democrats need to defend — copied and edited info from Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lester_Maddox

Lester Garfield Maddox, Sr. (September 30, 1915 – June 25, 2003) was an American politician who served as the 75th Governor of the U.S. state of Georgia from 1967 to 1971.

A populist Democrat, Maddox came to prominence as a staunch segregationist,[1] when he refused to serve black customers in his Atlanta restaurant, in defiance of the Civil Rights Act. Later he served as Lieutenant Governor during the time that Jimmy Carter was Governor.

The Interstate Highway 75 bridge over the Chattahoochee River at the boundary of Cobb County (Vinings) and Fulton County (Atlanta), is named the “Lester and Virginia Maddox Bridge.”

*********************************************************
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Wallace

George Corley Wallace Jr. (August 25, 1919 – September 13, 1998) was an American politician and the 45th Governor of Alabama, having served two nonconsecutive terms and two consecutive terms as a Democrat: 1963–1967, 1971–1979 and 1983–1987.

Wallace is remembered for his Southern neo-dixiecrat[2] and pro-segregation “Jim Crow” positions during the mid-20th century period of the Civil Rights Movement, declaring in his 1963 Inaugural Address that he stood for “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever,” and standing in front of the entrance of the University of Alabama in an attempt to stop the enrollment of black students.

The George Wallace Tunnel on Interstate 10 which runs underneath Mobile, Alabama is named in George Wallace’s honor.
