We should be so lucky.

Yeah no shiat you still see his tags all along the redline and now and then down allys. They must have been there 20+ years.

I'm suprised by this, whenever I've been there at night there are at least 2 or 3 park rangers around.


"How do we do it? VOLUME!"

From what I understand, Cool "Disco" Dan was *hated* by other taggers. More talented sorts would spend a night doing some work that actually did look good, and then a week later along comes Cool "Disco" Dan to put his tag on top of it.

Like the Vietnam memorial vandalism of 2007, the "message" or "point" the vandal is making is too obtuse to be known.

Odds are some jackass Treyvon white knight did it to protest whitey


Wow... What exactly is the chain of thought leading to that conclusion?

I happen to know the guy who was in charge of the lighting part of the Lincoln Memorial's recent renovation. Given that it was mostly paid for by private donations and everything came in on time and under budget, that might not be where you want to make an anti-government-waste rant.


The NPS does a great job, I think because it's pretty much been on a starvation diet since Clinton left office.  I'd worry more about DHS farking things up.

In fairness, it makes about as much sense as the Florida boycott, and people are doing that.

Should be legal for geezers to lie in wait and taze the little cocksuckers who tag. Would open up a whole new industry of equipment, travel, licensing, reality shows, etc.

The uneducated teenagers that did this associate Lincoln with slavery.  He's white.  Treyvon is dead.  KILL WHITEY!

My first thought was "paintball on the lawn".
Nothing in the article indicates that that was the case.  I now, however, would like to play paintball on the memorial lawn.

I suppose not. There are elected officials who have danced half-naked with strippers in the duck-shiat infested reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial.

But it takes a Smeggy Smurf to associate splatting green paint on the Lincoln Memorial with some act of civil rebellion.

With all of the green painted memorials around there who knows it could have been an accident.

No one believed that.  It was a scam to help organize advertising dollars.  If you want polite, informative discussions on the internet, you'll find sites with pseudonymous identities, and rigorous moderation do best(not fark).

maxheck: Absolutely zero.
They'll first have a team of Ph.D. contractors do an analysis of the damage, which will take three years and force the entire monument to be closed. Then, another contractor will come in and cut out the damaged pieces and new pieces will be carved from the same limestone or marble that was originally used. That will take five years. The the new pieces will be installed, which will take until 2024.

Rigorous moderation becomes censorship to the extreme, resulting in the creation of an echo chamber.  It's better to let a few trolls slip through than to remove someone that just has a differing opinion than the moderator on duty.

This type of reprehensible act is unfortunate but it did not permanently damage the memorial and this incident further underscores the need for the National Park Service to provide more funding and more personnel so as to provide a higher level of deterrence through officer presence. We are fortunate that this deplorable act can be remedied but caution that we are lucky that this wasn't an act of terrorism.


Geez dude calm down a little bit before you rupture something.

It really doesn't though.  You kill the following things, and the rest just follows: blatant bigotry, low-content posts, and repetitive memes.  Pretty much every terrible poster engages in one of those.

It's almost funny in how pathetic it looks. You can almost see someone with a half-pint of green paint smuggled under their coat, furtively looking around to see if anyone is watching, thinking to himself "Man, this is going to be so badass, I'll drench this statue in green and then they'll know man, they'll know what this country is really about, man!"

Yeah turns out that statue is pretty big huh? You may need a second coat there, Che.
