A statue of Confederate Gen. Stonewall Jackson was discovered vandalized Wednesday at a Civil War battlefield in Virginia on the morning after officials in Prince William County debated renaming roads and buildings honoring Southern leaders.

are we back to the statues again ?
So? No one to stop them or prosecute them.

They’ve sealed the FBI files on Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. until the year 2027. What are they hiding? Do they have a problem with us knowing the truth? If we knew the truth, Would there be so many monuments to Dr. King?
Truth is, there are going to be people that disagree with any monument. There are just some people that want to divide this nation.
Yeah, when I am triggered the first thing I think of is defacing the statue of some guy who has been dead for 150+ years. It must be all his fault.
