• ‘Deface, Defund, Destroy’: Radical Left Attacks More Monuments

    Surge Summary: Radicals continue to target and tear down America’s historic memorials. It is actually not only an attack against Donald Trump, but against many of the values that made America great.  

    by Gary Bauer

    The progressive barbarians continued their onslaught against America’s historic memorials over the weekend.  Far too many American politicians are too cowardly to stand up against them.  Here’s the latest.

    • Statues of President Ulysses Grant, perhaps the Union Army’s most famous general, and Francis Scott Key, author of the Star Spangled Banner, were torn down in San Francisco over the weekend.
    • Now a statue of Theodore Roosevelt outside of New York City’s Museum of Natural History is being removed by officials who apparently believe if you can’t beat a mob, join them.

    Once again, we see that the left isn’t going to stop at taking down statues of Confederate generals.  All of the things being done by the “deface, defund, destroy” progressives and the cowardly politicians who enable them are guaranteed to drive Americans apart.

    There is a real danger, I believe, that some good people will think, “If only we get Trump out of the White House, all of this unrest will calm down.”  It is the exact opposite, my friends.  Appeasing the mob never works.

    A Trump loss would only whet the left’s appetite.  As I’ve written many times, this isn’t really about Trump; it’s about you.  The left won’t stop until your values are destroyed.

    The only reason the riots ended in the big cities is because every left-wing governor knew that if they didn’t get a grip on it, President Trump would.  In many cases, he is the only public figure standing up in defense of our history, our law enforcement personnel, our monuments and our country.

    If the left succeeds in defeating Donald Trump, does anybody really think that Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are going to defend America against leftist mobs?
