Skip to comments.First it was Confederate monuments. Now statues offensive to Native Americans are poised to topple

Over the decades, this quiet coastal hamlet has earned a reputation as one of the most liberal places in the nation. Arcata was the first U.S. city to ban the sale of genetically modified foods, the first to elect a majority Green Party city council and one of the first to tacitly allow marijuana farming before pot was legal.
Now it's on the verge of another first.
No other city has taken down a monument to a president for his misdeeds. But Arcata is poised to do just that. The target is an 8½-foot bronze likeness of William McKinley, who was president at the turn of the last century and stands accused of directing the slaughter of Native peoples in the U.S. and abroad.
"Put a rope around its neck and pull it down," Chris Peters shouted at a recent rally held at the statue, which has adorned the central square for more than a century.
Peters, who heads the Arcata-based Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous People, called McKinley a proponent of "settler colonialism" that "savaged, raped and killed."
A presidential statue would be the most significant casualty in an emerging movement to remove monuments honoring people who helped lead what Native groups describe as a centuries-long war against their very existence.

Remember: Michelle Obama started this during the 2012 campaign that Barak had a lot of work to do to change our history and tradition.
We kept telling folks, but the Lincoln Lovers cheered them on.
It won’t stop until they expunge the Founding Fathers.
Leave these statues along. Fire water or fire sticks. Those are your choices.
Eventually Lady Liberty herself will have to be torn down, because it ‘offends’ Communists...................
A little sopranos. Beware Language
So, when does Mount Rushmore get dynamited?
In due time.....................
When is capitulation enough for liberals?
Stupid question. NEVER
Better question though, for how long can liberals remain perpetually angry?
We should try to find out and totally break them.
Mount Rushmore is on the list......mark my words.
Next, Christian and Jewish statues and icons will fall.
Then The Founders and COTUS icons will fall.
Then Lady Liberty will be replaced with a hooded muzzie woman with open arms.
Or people of European descent.
Obama changed it to Denali in 2015.
This crap is ALL right out of the communist strategy list leaked many years ago. Gotta find it again, see which number(s) it hits.
That’s where ALL of this social justice crap originates.
So much truth.
I miss those guys.
DOWN WITH WHITEY!!!!!!!
OK, what are the statues????
Won't repeat that mistake again.
