While most of the country celebrates Columbus Day this coming Monday, violent left-wing anarchists from Antifa announced a nationwide campaign to acknowledge the holiday by defacing statues of Christopher Columbus nationwide.
Antifa got an early start causing havoc by vandalizing Christopher Columbus statues in New York City over the past few weeks.
Last month, vandals defaced a “larger-than-life” statue of Columbus in Central Park, painting his hands blood-red and writing, “Hate will not be tolerated” and “#SomethingsComing” on its pedestal.
The NYC-based Antifa group, Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM), made the call to action on Thursday, September 21, urging Antifa groups nationwide to “decorate” their neighborhoods.
According to Far Left Watch, RAM is “an extremely militant group that advocates for the violent redistribution of property” and for “the abolition of gender.”
The militant group recently hosted an “Our Enemies in Blue” anti-police workshop at its Brooklyn, NY branch.
RAM also posted a video called “Against Columbus Day” on the Antifa website It’s Going Down, which featured its black-clad members arrogantly defacing and destroying monuments across the country to the tune of psycho synth music.
“The battles lines have been drawn and white supremacists are on notice,” the anarchists wrote in a statement on the website. “White nationalist statues are crumbling all over the US as our collective revolutionary power is growing.”
According to a recent poll, most Americans support a holiday honoring Christopher Columbus. RAM, on the other hand, calls it “one of the most vile ‘holidays’ of the year.” Like-minded supporters are being urged “to take action against this day and in support of indigenous people in the US and abroad who have been victims of colonialism and genocide.”
“We are calling for groups to ‘decorate’ their neighborhoods as they see fit: put up murals, wheatpaste posters, drop a banner, etc,” RAM announced. “On October 9th put a picture of your action on social media and use the hashtags below. With these actions multiplied around the country, we will make it unequivocally clear that revolutionaries will always stand with the indigenous!”
They plan to use the hashtags #F*ckColumbusDay and #DestroyColonialism.
Such announcements will likely be helpful in the efforts of police and elected officials to shut down the planned acts of criminality. Expect to see barricades around affected statues and an increased police presence at Columbus Day parades and events on Monday.
