I teared up as I heard the news about the Lincoln memorial being vandalized. I have watched with a heavy heart as cities around the country have fallen under attack by lunatics who claim to protest in the name of freedom but grossly betray that by rioting in hate.
Memorials and statues are being destroyed and ripped down because of their ties to our Confederate history. I do not agree with slavery. Of course it was horrible. However, ripping down our historical monuments won’t change that in the slightest! Not to mention, not everything in the south revolved around slavery. It’s sickening to see the damage the BLM and Antifa are doing.
I was in D.C. a few months ago to attend the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and it was nothing shy of amazing. I had a night to visit some of the monuments in the breathtaking city and I was nearly in tears at the overwhelmed sense of beauty I saw and the pride I felt for my country.
Today I am overwhelmed again, but this time with sadness and anger. What good comes from vandalizing the Lincoln Memorial, for one? For two, do these idiots not know that Lincoln literally worked to free the slaves? This just goes to show, they aren’t protesting and rioting because their feelings are hurt. Nope, they are doing it to see if anyone is going to try to stop them.
NBC Washington reports:
The words “F— law” were found written in red spray paint early Tuesday on a pillar at the monument that overlooks the Capitol building and National Mall, NPS said Tuesday afternoon. The graffiti was found about 4:30 a.m.
“It’s frustrating, not only for the Park Service but certainly for the visitors that come here, that anyone would vandalize any of our iconic memorials. Especially the Lincoln Memorial. Especially with everything that’s going on now — the calls for unity and people to come together,” NPS spokesman Mike Litterst said.
“To go to the site of the memorial to Abraham Lincoln and do that, that’s disappointing,” he continued.
Crews are working to remove the vandalization, which they expect to take about a week to do so.
People took to Twitter to express their feelings on the incident:
