With CNN and the mainstream media continuing to glamorize the removal of American history from our city squares, it was only a matter of time before the left began bombing statues.
Just over a week ago, the Battle of Charlottesville brought to light a struggle in American society: Radical leftists attempting to co-opt the nation’s historical record by eliminating the parts of our history that they do not agree with. The lightning rod for this revisionism have been Confederate memorials and statues honoring those who died fighting against the tyrannical overreach of the northern states.
In the last week, we have been witness to a number of unfortunately successful tirades by these radical leftist terror groups who have intimidated and coerced city and state officials to capitulate their every whim. In Baltimore, four Confederate statues were removed in the dead of night in order to avoid any backlash from those involved. In Atlanta, a monument to peace between the two sides of the Civil War was vandalized after being mistaken for a Confederate piece. Worst of all, a crowd of eager social media millennials toppled a statue in Durham, North Carolina simply so that they could then take selfies with the ruined artwork.
Now, in an even more heinous twist, the radical left has resorted to bombing American landmarks.
“A Houston man has been arrested on allegations he tried to plant explosives at the statue of Confederate officer Richard Dowling in Hermann Park, according to high-level law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation.
“When confronted Saturday night in the park, the man tried to drink the liquid explosives, one of the sources said.
“The man was not identified by name but the sources said he had previously been convicted in 2014 and given five years probation for storing explosives.“The man was arrested about 11 p.m. Saturday in the park, a source said, following a day of protests that drew hundreds of people to Sam Houston Park protesting a Spirit of the Confederacy statue. The Saturday event also drew counter-protesters.”
