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.

Our Monuments Under Attack

Sen. Mike Lee: ‘The Mob Hates America on America’s Dime. It’s Time to Cut Off Their Allowance.’

On the floor of the U.S. Senate Thursday, Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah delivered an impassioned speech condemning mob violence in the United States. Lee offered a resolution, which his Democrat colleague, Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, attempted to amend by inserting language attacking President Donald Trump. Menendez then repeatedly tried to silence Lee. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, served as the presiding officer and overruled Menendez. A lightly edited transcript and video are below.

Executive Order on Protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues and Combating Recent Criminal Violence | The White House

The first duty of government is to ensure domestic tranquility and defend the life, property, and rights of its citizens. Over the last 5 weeks, there has been a sustained assault on the life and property of civilians, law enforcement officers, government property, and revered American monuments such as the Lincoln Memorial. Today, President Donald J. Trump took decisive action to put an end to this lawlessness and protect American streets from vandalism and mob violence.
