Despite the best efforts of the protesters, not one statue's life was lost.

Not one of the heroes Trump mentioned who deserves a monument was a member of the Confederacy. Seems like we've all agreed fark the Confederacy and can move on now?  Museums and books are all they deserve, and scorn.

As you celebrate our Nation's birth, consider this-

"Rapid deployment teams" from the Department of Homeland Security have been sent to cities including Seattle and Portland, Oregon, where anti-police protests have swelled in recent weeks, while "regional deployment teams" are pre-positioned with the intent to be available anywhere in the US within six hours, according to an agency official.

Creative young folks could play an interesting game of whack-a-mole with that info. Gather and disband and then re-gather.

"Quick! To Portland"
<crickets>
"Immediately to Denver. People are playing flutes in aurora. This can't stand!"
<no flutes at all>
"Back to Portland, men. Antifa is afoot!"

Over and over.

On July 9, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was read for the first time in New York in front of George Washington and his troops. In reaction to what had been read, soldiers and citizens went to Bowling Green, a park in Manhattan, where a lead statue of King George III on horseback stood. The mob of people pulled down the statue, and later the lead was melted down to make musket balls, or bullets for use in the war for independence. Careful records were kept, and it is known that 42, 088 bullets were made.

Because of course, the American people are screaming loudly to protect all the Confederate Statues that various government are now deciding aren't a great idea.

That'll win him votes!*

* Not ones he doesn't already have.

It's a hunk of metal. What's one statue more or less?

Does the federal government have jurisdiction over monuments on land that isn't owned by the federal government?

How many monuments outside of DC are on federal land?

One hundred fifty thousand deaths from Sars-Cov-2 / COVID-19 is unavoidable at this point and we'll be headed for a quarter million if we don't do something soon.

Our government's top priority is making sure a few KKK statues don't get knocked over.

If that's not a clear sign of a failed state, I'm not sure what is.

Considering only nine Americans have died in Aghanistan this year, I'm far more concerned about the nearly 130,000 who have died this year from COVID-19.

One does wonder why so many Democrats are directly attention elsewhere and seem to support continuing this pointless and illbegotten war.

I have the perfect tagline for this administration that somebody can use in an ad or however they feel:

Donald Trump:
Bury his bone spurs at Broken Polls.
 
2020-07-04 1:01:08 AM  
Trump loves his monuments to mediocrity and failure. But all statues eventually crumble.

Thanks for perfectly illustrating the false dilemma fallacy.

I've always had you marked for a long time as "angry Trumper". Despite your occasional progressive posting you keep falling back into it.

[Fark user image 425x449]


As much as I get what that poem was going for and am not going to fault Shelley for not knowing this, you live in the internet age so you should probably know that Ozymandius was the Greek name for Ramesses the second, whose legacy in fact still endures because he's regarded as possibly THE greatest figure in New Kingdom Egyptian history to this day.

Also plenty of perfectly intact statues of him around.

Albeit, I live in the US where there are no statues of the guy (well, probably some) and yet I still somehow know this despite statues supposedly being the only way for us to learn our history... still kinda proves the point in a different way, then.

Seeing that picture of the protesters trying to bring down the statue of Jackson I had to wonder; does no protester know of the existence of a battery-powered angle grinder? Just a cut halfway through the base of that statue and it would likely be pulled down with little effort.

Yeah, I don't think most of the protesters are putting the planning into the front-end of the projects to actually bring a battery operated angle grinder to a protest.
Looks too suspicious.
Lots of cops are immediately repulsed by the thought of getting battery operated angle grindered and the resulting baton blows on forearms and collarbones will usually result in the almost immediate release of any sturdy angle grinder.

Good idea though, I'll bring it up at this Thursday's antifa leadership meeting.

What a lot of fark trolls have learned is that if you just make up some outrageous shiat and post it, at least one sucker will be dumb enough to seriously engage - it's just better to point out that their made-up shiat doesn't warrant discussion, and move on.
It's called "bait".
Don't bite on it.
I, or any f**king idiot could end a post with "One does wonder why the Republicans support the rape of human children by orangutans", in a stuffy, stupid sounding manner - and some fool will take the bait and want to fight about it - but it is just attention whoring, and should be ignored.
Accusing Democrats of doing that which they have failed to stop the Republicans from doing is the oldest lie/projection  in the books - it's summed up perfectly in that cartoon about the elephant breaking the vase and ordering the donkey to fix it.
Remember: EVERY accusation is a confession.
It's like there's always a tweet - there's no exceptions.

Oh, shiat. We forgot to budget a battery operated angle grinder.
We'll have to submit a referendum to the committee, and assemble a quorum.
At the moment I don't even know where the triplicate forms are.

I think activists are knocking them down. I just don't think they'll try to knock down any with federal people protecting them. They're more likely to film the "protectors" for mockery.
