National Park Service Announcement: Confederate Statues at Gettysburg Not Going Anywhere

The National Park Service just made it crystal clear… the statues at Gettysburg are staying put and if the left tries to get at them, then there will be a stiff rebuke awaiting them. They are historical monuments and hold deep meaning for many families. They tell the story of the Civil War – both sides, good and bad. They are part of our heritage and you do not erase your own history as the left is so fervently seeking to do.
Soldiers on both sides of the war fought and died for freedom and for what they believed in at Gettysburg. You don’t have to condone it or like it… but you do need to respect it. 7,000 men fought, bled and died on that battlefield. It is a vital part of the history of America… a chapter we should learn from and hopefully not repeat. Leftists, radicals and communists have adopted Taliban-like tactics in the destruction of historical monuments. They have pulled some down, completely uprooted others and even set some on fire. The officials at Gettysburg are making it very clear they have no plans of participating in a historical purge.


From Breitbart:
As the American left pushes to purge the nation of Confederate statues and memorials, the National Parks Service is making clear the statues at Gettysburg battlefield are not going anywhere.
Katie Lawhon is the senior advisor for the park service when it comes to Gettysburg, and she says the statues “are important” and allow the park service to “historically and objectively tell the stories the monuments commemorate.”
Lawhon reassured the Reading Eagle that the statues would not be moved.
Barb Adams, who volunteers at Gettysburg, said watching the statues being vandalized and/or removed around the country breaks her heart. She said, “It’s just so upsetting to me—these men, these soldiers fought for what they believed in.”   Read more.....

Man Stabbed By Antifa Mob Outside His Home For Not Condemning ‘Nazis’ Hard Enough

A Vermont man says he was stabbed outside his home by a group of five masked men armed with box cutters on Tuesday, after being labeled a “Nazi sympathizer” for denouncing attempts to ruin the life of a Unite the Right rally attendee — even though he himself strongly disavows white supremacy.
The victim, Sam Wormer, who identifies as neither right or left, is so concerned about the divide in the country that even after being attacked he wasn’t sure that his story should be told. Leftist friends of his confirmed to Big League Politics that he frequently sticks up for “marginalized members of the community.”
Ryan Roy, 28, appeared in the Vice News episode on the events over the weekend in Charlottesville. He was promptly doxed on Twitter and a social media campaign made sure that he was fired from his job at Pizzeria Uno. Additionally, the internet mob called child protective services in an effort to have his young baby removed from his care.

In an interview with Burlington Free Press, Wormer, his former friend and classmate, stated that he was “completely shocked” to see footage of Roy at the rally. The following comments are what he and his friends say would become the alleged “justification” for being stabbed by five masked assailants and labeled a “Nazi sympathizer.”
“He would attend anti-war rallies. He was very left — like anti-Republican, very progressive, very liberal, very anti-Christian,” Wormer recalled of Roy.
The paper reported that Wormer also remembered Roy being part of the “fringe crowd” and as someone who would always stick up for people who were being bullied. Another man who knew Roy confirmed this to Big League Politics — and added that he is also an “ex goth.”

Leftist Activists Demand New York Museum Take Down Statue of ‘Racist’ Theodore Roosevelt

Social justice warriors are never satisfied. If you give them an inch, they’ll take a mile. After demanding that southern states take down statues of Confederate figures, the activist Left is now targeting an iconic American president featured on Mount Rushmore.
On Monday, more than 200 SJW zealots held a protest inside the American Museum of Natural History in New York City to take down the supposedly “racist” statue of former President Theodore Roosevelt. The protest’s organizers, NYC Stands with Standing Rock and Decolonize This Place, also called for Columbus Day to be renamed Indigenous People’s Day.
“A stark embodiment of the white supremacy that Roosevelt himself espoused and promoted,” pontificated the group of protesters in a statement. “The statue is seen as an affront to all who pass it on entering the museum, but especially to African and Native Americans.”
Marching around the museum in a fit of self-righteous rage, protesters carried signs that read “BLACK LIVES MATTER,” “DECOLONIZE THIS MUSEUM,” and “ABOLISH WHITE SUPREMACY.”
The entire spectacle was underscored by a sort of religious fanaticism.

Teacher arrested for assaulting white nationalist: Violence against far-right ‘not a crime'

The Berkeley area teacher who pummeled a white nationalist last year, and just recently was arrested on assault charges for that attack, is claiming that “standing up to fascism is not a crime.”
By Any Means Necessary’s Yvette Felarca, who teaches in the Berkeley Unified School District, said at her arraignment that “Standing up against the rise of Nazism […] in this country is not a crime,” and added “We have the right to defend ourselves.”
As reported by The College Fix, Felarca was caught on video in June of last year “punch[ing] the man in the stomach repeatedly, before throwing him to the ground.”  Read more.....
