But it will be blamed on Tea Partiers. The lefties who do this crap don’t seem to realize that respect for property is a conservative value. It is destruction of property that liberals love.

I suspect that investigators will scrape the layer of green paint, and find a layer or red paint underneath.

I’m sure there is surveillance all around there. There should be some suspects soon. Unless their holder’s people.

Why would Muslims target the Lincoln memorial?

The park service uses a lot of green paint. Some poor employee probably spilled a little.

But why the Lincoln memorial in particular? WTC was a symbol of American commerce and architecture. Considering what the Dreamer crowd is up to after Zimmerman, wouldn’t they be more likely trying to frame racists who hate Lincoln?

Certainly possible. Or just vandals who pick a high profile target to ensure their handiwork makes the news. Certainly the routine muzzie mo is to blow stuff up, not spray paint it. I was just pointing out the coincidence of the vandals’ choice of color as that of islam (as well as the green movement).

I assume its because the Lincoln memorial is relatively unguarded over night.

Green USED to be my favorite color, a deep dark “Forest” Green, or even a Teal or Mint, or sage green.

However, not only is green the color of islam, it is also force-fed to us daily by the environmentalist movement. Green cars, grocery bags, food packaging, businesses, cities, on and on ad nauseum.

I would be more inclined to think this was done by “Greenies”, rather than muzzies.

I'm guessing it wasn't "splattered". Security would not let the news crew close enough to film it. So it was probably spray paint graffiti that they government did not want the public to see.

I do not know the answer to that one, but I would be shocked if there were no cameras.

I expect to read:
1. They have a suspect associated with the Tea Party
or
2.There are no suspects because the cameras has to be turned off because of sequestration

IOW:
1. Yes, there are cameras.
2. A suspect was caught on tape.
3. They have no interest in prosecuting the suspect because the perp was an Obama supporter.

Oh yes. The word that is usually translated “Pale” can also be interpreted as “Green”.

Unfortunately, my beloved Les Paul, which I bought a number of years ago, is a deep, dark hunter green.

It’s a WONDERFUL Guitar though.

Unless the vandal really did tote green paint up there to simply 'spatter' the monument they must've given some indication of what their beef was. Too bad the reporter didn't see fit to let us know what it was.

I'm thinking 'justice for trayvon' or 'allahu ahkbar' or thereabouts.

That is NOT a “black power fist”. It IS a statue of the forearm and fist of Joe Louis the great heavyweight champion of the `30s who was a native of Detroit and is still a revered individual in that town. Note, the Red Wings play in Joe Louis Arena.

Why give publicity to those who vandalized by splattering their handiwork all over the media?

“Considering what the Dreamer crowd is up to after Zimmerman, wouldn’t they be more likely trying to frame racists who hate Lincoln?”......

Funny, that was the first thing I thought of when I read the article. Nothing the “Dreamer Crowd” might do would surprise me as they are full of artifically created “hate”. They want to destroy everything that is good about this country and hence they are indeed odumbo supporters.
