So, a group of eager anti-slavery activists attacked yet another Confederate statue, trying to melt it or (it was made of stone) heat and then crack it, bringing down another hated symbol of oppression and racism…
Pro-tip for protestors: Not everyone named Lee was related to Robert E.
Someone with more gall than sense tried to destroy the statue of Gen. William C. Lee, a WWII paratrooper. You know, the guys who jumped from airplanes to fight the original NAZIs and real Fascists? Yeaaaahhhhh.
If my Grandpa Carl was still alive, he’d have a group of his friends from the 82nd and 101st out looking for the misguided souls, in order to gently remonstrate with them about the follies of their ignorance and provide follow-up counseling. Probably starting with a two-by-four.
This here is what you call weapons-grade stupidity and ignorance.
