    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. A large quantity of white paint was poured on three sides of the statue’s polished granite base, the National Park Service said in a statement, and the word “Dead!” was written on the statue in gold spray paint. ... The vandalism happened the morning after a raucous Board of Supervisors meeting in Prince William County — where the statue is located — in which protesters...

    To remove the vandalism, city crews power-washed the Robert E. Lee monument in downtown Roanoke. The Robert E.

    PHOENIX - The Confederate monument that stands at Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza, just outside the Arizona state Capitol, looked a little different than it usually does Tuesday evening. In addition to its memorializing of Arizona Confederate soldiers and its erectors, the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the statue got a few new decorations. At the top, a ribbon hung with the words, "You lost, get over it," and at the bottom, the monuments message "A nation that forgets its past has no future" had been covered with a "2nd Place," "Participant" banner.

    There's a massive amount of commentary today on the drive to remove monuments related to the Confederacy. Statues of generals, political leaders, and prominent citizens during that period in history are coming down all over the South following the violence in Charlottesville. Monuments that remind local citizens of their ancestors who died in the Civil War are also being removed. In truth, Charlottesville is an excuse to do what activists have wanted to do for decades; remove every last reminder that there was, at one time, an independent nation on the American continent based on the idea that humans could...

    DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) – A crowd of protesters gathered outside the old Durham County courthouse on Main Street Monday evening in opposition to a Confederate monument in front of the government building. Around 7:10 p.m. a woman using a ladder climbed the statue of a soldier and attached a rope around the statue. Moments later, the crowd pulled on the rope and the statue fell. One man quickly ran up and spat on the statue and several others began kicking it. Durham police later said they monitored the protests to make sure they were “safe” but did not interfere with...

    DURHAM, North Carolina (WTVD) -- Protesters in Durham rushed and toppled a Confederate statue outside the courthouse on Monday evening. The monument of a Confederate soldier holding a rifle was erected in 1924 and inscribed on it are the words "in memory of the boys who wore the gray." ABC11 spoke to Durham Mayor Bill Bell for reaction about the incident. "I'm not surprised seeing what's gone on in this country," Bell said Monday night. Because the statue was on county property, Bell would not comment on any possible charges against the protesters for the vandalism. Protesters then moved on...

    A leftist Christian church decided to show their community that they must open borders by taking in Muslim refugees and letting them live in the church building. However, as soon as they opened their doors, they were forced to call the police when they discovered the sickening thing asylum seekers left for them in the church pews. The West is trapped in a vicious circle of embracing migrants, being abused by said migrants, and blaming the victims for provoking their wrath. The same tolerance and acceptance is not only never returned, but the gracious hosts find that their hospitality is...
