    Country music star John Rich seemingly put his own career at risk this week by defying the left to say that other artists have come to him saying that they are being “muzzled” by the industry “when it comes to them expressing their frustration and anger about the targeting of conservatives.”
  • 'Creating blind spots': Sculptor says statue removal advocates need reality check

    Absolutely arrogant. For Timothy P. Schmalz, an Ontario-based sculptor, that’s really the only way to describe the renewed push to tear down statues that commemorate people who are now deemed out of step with modern morals. When a Confederate figure gets toppled in the U.S., or a prime minister who was part of brutal treatment of Indigenous people is destroyed in Canada, it says more than just disagreeing, Mr. Schmalz said. It’s a claim that we would have known better, acted otherwise. And that’s the hubris. “When one destroys or puts a Confederate statue in a museum, out of sight,...

    statue of Abraham Lincoln was vandalized in San Francisco as a school district committee pushes for the renaming of Lincoln High School and others, authorities said.

The suspect had fled before deputies arrived, according to the department. The statue has been restored and deputies are still investigating. A photo shows the statue’s face painted red along with the engraved name at its base. Christopher Beale, a journalist based in San Francisco, posted the photo along with a...

    The University of Rhode Island recently announced plans to remove two murals depicting the events of World War II due to their lack of diversity. The decision was prompted after students complained that the mural was not compatible with the university’s values of inclusivity. According to the school’s Vice President of Student Affairs, “Some of our students have even shared with us they didn’t feel comfortable sitting in that space.”

    Washington, D.C. Newsroom, Jul 16, 2020 / 12:32 pm MT (CNA).- The recent series of attacks on church buildings and property continued Tuesday night, as a statue of Christ was toppled and beheaded at a Miami parish and a statue of Mary was daubed with red paint in Colorado Springs. Recent weeks have seen a rolling series of acts of vandalism and destruction at Catholic churches across the United States, including arsons, decapitations, and graffiti. But while some of the incidents have been caught on camera, in most cases the perpetrators, and their motivations have yet to be identified. In...

    The statue of slave trader Edward Colston has been secretly replaced overnight by a figure of a Black Lives Matter protester. Last month, the 18th century merchant's statue was torn down, dragged a third of a mile and thrown into the Bristol harbour. His empty spot has been filled with a monument to Jen Reid - who was photographed on the plinth with her fist raised after the statue fell, inspiring the new installation. A cardboard placard reading 'black lives still matter' was also placed at the base.

    In a recent article about Mount Rushmore, The New York Times said of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt that “each of these titans of American history has a complicated legacy.” Reporters Bryan Pietsch and Jacey Fortin casually summarized the woke herd’s litany of grievances: Washington and Jefferson owned slaves, Lincoln was “reluctant and late” to issue the Emancipation Proclamation and Roosevelt “actively sought to Christianize and uproot Native Americans.” Rushmore’s sculptor, Gutzon Borglum, didn’t escape unscathed. “Borglum had been involved with another project: an enormous bas-relief at Stone Mountain in Georgia that memorialized Confederate leaders,” the...

    In recent days, America has produced an astounding spectacle. Americans desecrated and demanded removal of their own statues to their own heroes, including African Americans who fought for the Union; Hans Christian Heg, a Norwegian immigrant and dedicated abolitionist who modeled courage and gave his life in the Civil War; Taduesz Kosciuszko, the Polish-born designer of West Point who left money in his will to purchase freedom for American slaves; the World War II Memorial to the men and women who actually did fight fascism; and the Emancipation Memorial, a monument paid for by freed slaves, dedicated in a speech...

    The University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts announced Friday that it will remove its exhibit of Hollywood legend John Wayne, citing an initiative to promote “anti-racist cultural values” following protests from students. “Conversations about systemic racism in our cultural institutions along with the recent global, civil uprising by the Black Lives Matter Movement require that we consider the role our school can play as a change maker in promoting antiracist cultural values and experiences,” Evan Hughes, the assistant dean of diversity and inclusion, said in a statement. “Therefore, it has been decided that the Wayne Exhibit will be...

    Why hasn’t Ghislaine Maxwell, the alleged pimp of deceased Clinton donor/pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, showed up for an interview with the FBI yet? Just kidding! We all know the ugly answer to that question. The Clintons have spent the past four years denying their years-long close personal friendship with Epstein and Maxwell, to limited success. A new and very blatant connection to the duo has just come to light, which makes us wonder why no one has uncovered it previously. It’s almost as if the media doesn’t want to look too closely at the Clintons’ relationship with Epstein and Maxwell! Hillary...
  • Yes Virginia, Those Spanish Monuments Must Be Defended as Well!

    No monument is safe as America undergoes this Kulturkampf, and no statue should be taken for granted or considered less worthy of protection.  First it was Confederate monuments. Low-hanging fruit. For the iconoclastic Left, however, this was merely the appetizer. As of this writing, the main course is being served. The mob is clamoring to gobble up monuments dedicated to the likes of the Founding Fathers and Teddy Roosevelt. Even the abolitionist Matthias Baldwin was not spared from the leftist frenzy after vandals tagged the statue with paint and graffiti that read “colonizer” and “murderer.”It would be a mistake to believe that anti-monument saturnalia...

    President Trump's campaign recently issued a round of digital ads asking people to support his reelection bid as he stands up to those targeting statues, monuments, and memorials. One of the ads, which ran on Facebook and Instagram, featured a photo of a statue of Jesus along with the words, "WE WILL PROTECT THIS." There's only one problem: The statue isn't in the United States. The photo depicted Rio de Janeiro, Brazil's iconic Christ the Redeemer statue.

    Editor’s Note: This column is excerpted from a special report that he wrote for Accuracy in Media. The “White Skin Privilege” idea was created in 1967 by Noel Ignatiev, an acolyte of [Derrick] Bell and professor at Harvard’s W.E.B. Du Bois Institute (Du Bois was a Communist black leader who helped found the NAACP). Writing under the alias Noel Ignatin, Ignatiev co-authored an SDS pamphlet with fellow radical Ted Allen, titled White Blindspot. In 1992 he co-founded Race Traitor: Journal of the New Abolitionism. Its first issue coined the slogan, "Treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity." Its stated objective...

    President Trump on Friday during a Fourth of July event at Mount Rushmore lambasted protesters calling for the removal of Confederate statues, accusing them of wanting to “overthrow the American Revolution” and fundamentally change the country. “There is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted and punished. Not going to happen to us,” he told a packed crowd. “Make no mistake, this left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American Revolution. In so...

    Protesters plan to storm Washington, D.C., over Independence Day weekend with protests and demonstrations. Activists in the most high profile of these events plan to protest the Emancipation Memorial in Lincoln Park. The memorial, which leaders of the local collective the Freedom Neighborhood claimed they would topple last week, has become a subject of national interest, with many people making a case both for and against the statue. Glenn Foster, the leader of the Freedom Neighborhood, has promoted multiple protests against the memorial set for the days surrounding the July 4 weekend. In some of his material, he celebrated the...
  • Lincoln Statues Must Go. Margaret Sanger Stays?

    Levar Stoney, the black Democratic mayor of Richmond, Virginia, made the executive decision to remove a statue of Gen. Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson on Monument Avenue to "expedite the healing process for the city." This demonstrated how cities with liberal majorities can take down statues in an orderly fashion without vandalizing them or pulling them down. Or it demonstrates how Democratic mayors respond to pressure from the self-appointed statue-removal squad. The left is interested in taking down all kinds of statues, which raises an obvious question: What about the statues the left has put up? No one's ripping those down. In...

    Richmond, VA _ The City of Richmond Thursday removed the Maury Statue on Monument Avenue at Belmont, along with two cannons on Monument avenue, one just west of the Arthur Ashe Monument, and the other east of the Jefferson Davis statue. Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney said the statue and cannons were among eleven the city would be removing in the coming days, following Wednesday's removal of the Stonewall Jackson statue, but it would wait until after the July 4th holiday. Maury was a confederate navy officer during the Civil War and known as the "Pathfinder of the Seas", which is...
