PHOENIX - A Confederate monument in Phoenix was power-washed on Thursday morning after it was defaced with paint.
White paint coated parts of the monument located in the Wesley Bolin Plaza in downtown Phoenix, but there is no word yet on who may have been behind the vandalism.
ABC15 crews on scene showed a clean-up crew hosing off the monument around 6 a.m.
I said then, "what are they inviting nuts to go do this?"
**put a map**
Let's blame White Supremacists. Because they are always the bad guys.
Sort of like the celebrities encouraging people to doxx, get fired, harass, beat up (that’s the implication in doxxing, right?) anyone who dared to march in favor of keeping the Robert E. Lee monuments.
And like before this will repulse most Americans. Americans aren’t for removing these statues.
> Well, the “news” put a map on their website and directed viewers to it. <
We are seeing a major shift here among the left. Just last week it was “That offends me. I must destroy it.”
Now it’s “I must find something to offend me. Then I will destroy it.”
It’s almost like a pyramid scheme. To keep things going, the left must find more and more things to destroy. Eventually they will bump up against someone who says “Nope. Ain’t gonna happen.” Perhaps that will happen when the left targets a grave or the Alamo. Then all hell will break loose.
The left is nothing if they aren't predictable and whoever is behind the scenes funding and directing knows very well how to keep them marching forward.
They've never been this close. They are going for it all.
What’s a memorial like that doing in Arizona.? Whose side were they on?
> They’ve never been this close. They are going for it all. <
Yep. They really are going for it all. Trump and the GOP would make a powerful counterweight to all this nonsense. But the GOP will not stand with Trump. Instead, the GOP attacks Trump. So I must sadly predict that the Left is going to win here.
Any statue, monument, street name, etc. that is “racist” will come down, sooner or later. And once gone, they won’t be coming back.
That's not even a starting point.
Whats a memorial like that doing in Arizona.?
Can you repeat this in English?
...In February 1862, a band of 120 Confederate Rangers under Capt. Sherod Hunter occupied Tucson, Arizona as part of an effort to expand the border of the Confederacy westward. In order to thwart this move, a 2,350-strong, pro-Union “Column from California” under Col. James H. Carleton set out toward Tucson.
Carleton’s force was a mix of volunteer infantry and cavalry with a U.S. Regular artillery battery.
On April 15th, a Union squad under Lt. James Barrett of the 1st California Cavalry met with a patrol of Confederate Rangers led by Sergeant Henry Holmes near Picacho Peak, a rocky spire 50 miles northwest of Tucson on the Overland Stagecoach route...
...The engagement at Picacho Peak was the westernmost battle of the American Civil War and also one of the smallest in terms of numbers engaged...
The unfamiliar name of the Peak that’s giving you trouble It’s a native American name and yes it’s spelled right.
Picacho Peaks most noted historic event occurred on April 15, 1862, when Confederate and Union scouting parties met in the Battle of Picacho Pass during the Civil War. This was the largest Civil War clash to take place in Arizona.
Time to pull a few liberal leaner statues the hell down?
Maybe some Martin Luther (the plagiarizer) King ones?
