Statues Vandalized by Antifa Will Not Be Restored

Do we care enough about the heritage that defines us to restore the statues of great Americans that have been destroyed by Antifa and Black Lives Matter vandals? Not in liberal Portland we don’t.

From Hot Air:

Last October, Portland’s Antifa announced what they called an Indigenous People’s Day of Rage (in place of Columbus Day). The day of rage was intended from the start to include “direct action” which is anarchist code for smashing things. The group was true to its word. They tore down statues of Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt, smashed the entrance to the Oregon Historical Society, and damaged a bunch of retail outlets. They even smashed windows at a Portland State University police office.

On Wednesday…

…Portland’s Regional Arts and Culture Council (RACC) decided that the statues of Washington, Roosevelt and Lincoln would not be returned to the places where they stood before.

However, they will restore a vandalized statue of an elk, presumably because they don’t feel that elk deserve to be canceled.

Virtually all Antifa/BLM violence has happened with the tacit approval if not open encouragement of Democrat authorities. Liberals in charge further endorse the desecration and erasure of our history by making it permanent.

There is no meaningful difference between the sociopathic scum tearing down statues of George Washington and their bureaucratic fellow travelers. The same goes for the propagandists at Willamette Week, which covers the destruction of the Roosevelt and Lincoln statues from the viewpoint of the vandals:

The fate of the statues could prove a measurement of how swiftly Portland public opinion has shifted on which historical figures should be celebrated. Both presidents are towering figures in American history. But Roosevelt espoused eugenics and led imperialist wars. And Lincoln, while chiefly remembered for the Emancipation Proclamation, held racist views of Black people and presided over the removal of Native Americans from their land.

As for George Washington, by now it goes without saying among progressives that our greatest hero and the father of our country should be canceled. Like most if not all 18th century Virginia landowners, he owned slaves.

The statues will likely be replaced by “new public art representing more diverse cultural identities and histories” — i.e., anti-American moonbat propaganda.
