Public monuments belong to all Americans and are not to be torn down by rampaging mobs and power hungry bureaucrats. Citizens must demand that our elected officials protect our monuments. To that end, American Constitutional Rights Union’s Protect Monuments Project educates and mobilizes citizens and pressures public officials to protect historic monuments and buildings from leftist criminals and vandals who seek to erase our national history.
We also demand that public officials assist in protecting private buildings, monuments and statues. Recently BLM leader Shaun King called for the destruction of churches and depictions of Jesus.
Stand up to those who seek to destroy our treasured symbols.
They’re tearing down statues, desecrating monuments, and purging dissenters. It’s not the behavior of a peaceful political movement; it’s the behavior of totalitarians and tyrants and people that don’t love our country.
LTC Allen B. West (US Army, Retired), Member, 112th US Congress
“We cannot and will not relinquish our historic monuments to the progressive socialist leftists who seek to stamp out our collective memory of the fight for freedom in the United States. On the battlefield and at home I will always defend the honor of our great country against insidious criminals and vandals, and I call on every public official to join me in pledging to protect our historic monuments.”
Amb. J. Kenneth Blackwell (ACRU Action Board of Directors)
“The American Constitutional Rights Union will work to protect our American history from “cancel culture” activists, just as we fight every day to protect the constitutional rights of all Americans. We will not sit idly while domestic terrorists, anarchists and thugs criminally destroy monuments and private property. We will call out any public official who allows lawlessness and destruction.”
Evangelist Dr. Alveda C. King
“While we are protecting our history, we are overcoming our biases; this is happening simultaneously. There is no need to vandalize property and real estate in this process. We must remember the good; that’s legacy. We must avoid repeating the bad; bad is sin. Remember, statues can be idols. As one blood, one human race; it’s time to return to God. #GODPOWER”
Over 100 leaders of the conservative movement have joined together to issue a “memo to the movement” applauding President Trump’s “Executive Order on Protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues and Combating Recent Criminal Violence” and decrying the vandalism and assaults on revered American monuments such as the Lincoln Memorial, the World War II Memorial, statues of former Presidents Ulysses S. Grant and Andrew Jackson, and even military veterans and Christian leaders who worked to abolish slavery.
Public officials have the responsibility to protect America from rampaging mobs that seek to destroy monuments and demoralize Americans. The destruction is a means to an end — a Marxist reshaping of America that has little to do with protecting the lives of innocents.
Our country is under attack from radical leftists. Mobs rampage through our streets, monuments are being destroyed, and the very law and order that ensures our communities’ peace and security is being undermined.
State lawmakers returned to work Monday in a state Capitol battered by four days of protests. The building and surrounding monuments have been defaced with graffiti, and windows along the lowest floor were boarded up with plywood. Some windows on the second floor of the Capitol were also smashed with rocks. A state employee told legislative leaders that the offices of Gov. Jared Polis and his chief of staff both had broken windows.
Councilman Ryan Dorsey of Baltimore made a very public request to tear down a memorial to fallen Baltimore police officers.
On the link at the end of this paragraph, you can download a copy of our Protect Monument Action Pledge for officials and send it to Mr. Dorsey, or your own local politicians. Ask them to sign it. Put them on the spot. And then let us know if they have signed - or not.
Around two hundred Antifa terrorists and far-left militant protesters gathered at the Portland Justice Center on Wednesday night and torched the 100-year-old elk statue. They did so much damage, it will have to be removed.
The headline is misleading. As far as we can tell from the article, there weren't any counter protesters or white nationalists at the park. The militia members addressed their comments to people who were not there.
