First they came for the Rebels....

Latest Victim Of Statue Hysteria: Catholic Saints by Matt Vespa
Excerpt: Over the past few days, Confederate generals have been placed in the crosshairs of the progressive Left. Statues to these Americans who fought on the losing side of our civil war, which bothered no one—and probably still don’t—are being targeted for demolition. Yet, why stop there? Abraham Lincoln, who actually kept the country together and abolished slavery through a constitutional amendment, has been vandalized in Chicago. Now, some are arguing that statues to Thomas Jefferson and George Washington have to come down because they were slave owners. Forget that they helped found this great country. Forget that Washington and Jefferson were our first and third presidents; they’re monsters whose legacy must be sanitized and erased because we must all become woke, or whatever the hell that term means. Now, a Catholic saint has been vandalized in Mission Hills, California (via CBSLA): Several people stopped by a statue of Father Junipero Serra in a park across from Mission San Fernando on Thursday after a photo made the rounds on social media appearing to show the statue had been vandalized. A picture circulating Facebook showed the statue spray-painted red and the word “murder” written on Serra in white. (Yep, let's trash holy people, based on rumors and myths about what they supposedly did, and just forget about what they really did. At this point it becomes impossible to figure out who can be untouchable by this madness, maybe Mother Teresa had a hidden or rumored flaw somewhere and she'll be next? Lyndon Johnson was most certainly racist, he was known to use the "N-word" frequently, why haven't any of his memorials been hit yet? This has to be dialed back by some of the people who have been promoting it in various ways. But so far, I'm not seeing any of that. Will it keep getting worse? Maybe dynamiting Mt Rushmore will be the next move. --Del)
