This year Preparing for the 4th of July will be different from any other in history, for the resistance is gonna try and rock our world!
It’s time that, “We the People” have an open and honest discussion about the current destruction and vandalism of historic monuments, statues, markers, plaques and street signs of historic figures throughout American history.
In the past month, more than 100 have been torn down and others vandalized and destroyed.
On June 22, 2020 vandals came close to tearing down a statue of Andrew Jackson, the 7th President of The United States. A statue that was erected in 1852. Thankfully, the United States Capitol Police and D.C. Park Police risked their safety to save it from the angry mob.
Yes, it’s true that Jackson signed the “Indian Removal Act,” whereby thousands were driven from their homes by the United States government. Thousands of native Americans died along their trip, which is referred to as the “Trail of Tears,” as they were chased away from their own land.
It was disgraceful conduct by our government, nobody is denying that, but we can’t change that – it is part of our history. A history that we have learned from.
Monuments and Statues are erected for historic figures in American history. They were not created for perfect people that we should worship.
Remember, this started as an effort to tear down Confederate Statues.
However, the real agenda of these criminals is to destroy our history. It quickly pivoted from the Confederate Statues to Christopher Columbus, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant and others.
This mentioned group included the man who was credited with discovering America, the prevailing General of the Revolutionary War, Our Founding President, The Author of the Declaration of Independence, the man who signed the Emancipation Proclamation and the prevailing General of the American Civil War.
By any description, these are truly historic figures. They should be remembered. And, their actions should be taught to all future generations of Americans.
This disgusting movement of destruction has become so prevalent in our society that the magazine “Popular Mechanics” printed a how to guide to tear down statues that you don’t like without hurting yourself.
We must never allow incidents like this to be considered politically correct or normal. It’s not. Americans should be outraged by this.
