What do George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, Ulysses S. Grant. Father Junipero Serra, and Christopher Columbus have in common?

These iconoclasts are either dumb or evil. In any case twisted.

None was a Confederate general. And all have had their statues torn down by mobs in the last few days, or, in the case of Roosevelt, had New York’s Museum of Natural History announce that a Roosevelt statue at the museum’s entrance will soon be removed.

As for iconoclasts, they have a history.

As for law enforcement:

The mobs ripped down statues in Portland, San Francisco, Minneapolis, and other cities without any fear of police interference. The police might as well have been defunded, for all they did to protect America’s historical monuments from vigilante violence.

Awful.
