BIG REMINDER : The KKK Wanted to Tear Down Statues Too



Well, well, well, it looks Black Lives Matter and Antifa are more similar to the KKK than they know.
As a matter of fact, back in the 1920’s the KKK wanted to tear down Christopher Columbus statues, just like what the radical left is doing now.
A simple look at history (while it’s still in one piece) will show you that groups who want to destroy statues, monuments, and the very fabric of history itself, are almost always tyrannical radical groups of fringe lunatics.
At this point, Antifa and Black Lives Matter have more in common with the KKK and ISIS than they do with any “peaceful” group of protesters, no matter what they say.
These Alt-Left thugs are not fighting for justice and equality, they’re trying to erase history and strike fear into the hearts of American conservatives everywhere.
The Ku Klux Klan attempted to tear down monuments dedicated to Christopher Columbus too, an advocate of the famous explorer told The Daily Caller.
Patrick Korten of the National Christopher Columbus Association said in a statement Friday that “Columbus has been the target of white supremacists since the 1920s, when a resurgent Ku Klux Klan attacked monuments and celebrations of Columbus from coast to coast.”
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and other city leaders are now contemplating whether to remove statues like Columbus from their respective cities.
De Blasio appointed a commission to review monuments that are dedicated to historical figures. Some of these monuments, like a 76-foot tall Christopher Columbus statue, could be removed from city property if it is deemed too distasteful.
Korten says, “They hated that he was Mediterranean, not Anglo, that he sailed for Spain, not England, that he was popular in the immigrant community, and most of all, that he was Catholic. (Catholics, along with African Americans and Jews, were regular targets of the Klan).”
