Black Lives Matter activists believe America was built on a rotten foundation.
In order to remove the stain of slavery, American history needs completely erased.
And one state caved to Black Lives Matter and will remove a statue no one saw coming.
Confederate monuments, statues, and paintings of politicians or figures who were affiliated with the Confederacy are being targeted for removal.
Black Lives Matter activists, Democrats, and their allies in the press claim these are monuments to racism.
But for years now, it’s been clear that these radical activists won’t stop with purging symbols of the Confederacy.
Once efforts to erase history begin, they tend to grow quickly out of control.
And in the end, what these activists really want is to radically transform America into their socialist vision.
But that’s only possible by first erasing the past.
And in California, Democrats are going all the way back to the discovery of the New World by announcing their plans to remove a statue of Christopher Columbus from the state capitol.
Senate President Pro Tempore Toni Atkins, Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, and Assembly Rules Committee Chairman Ken Cooley all signed a statement announcing their support for removing the Columbus statue.
“Christopher Columbus is a deeply polarizing historical figure given the deadly impact his arrival in this hemisphere had on indigenous populations. The continued presence of this statue in California’s Capitol, where it has been since 1883, is completely out of place today,” the statement read.
Leftist academics have spent decades indoctrinating students that Columbus was nothing more than a racist colonizer who brought nothing but disease and genocide to the world.
But the whole reason America exists today is because of Columbus’ discovery that spurred centuries of exploration and development by European nations in the Americas.
Everything that’s grown out of that should be considered in its entirety, not erased simply because Leftist PC Police have decided Columbus is no longer someone who should be honored for his achievements.
But these radical activists are hell bent on their determination to transform America.
And that just simply can’t be done until you’ve destroyed the foundation on which it was built.
