Tearing down monuments is becoming popular again, now Native Americans want a former President to come down
Arcata California one of the most liberal places in the country (that is saying a lot). Native Americans in Arcata are offended by a statue of former President William McKinley. You knew the monument debate had to come back. Liberals are at heart history revisionist. They will not stop until all real history is gone and they can replace it with their Socialist America.
No city so far has removed a statue of a former President but Arcata is poised to do just that. The object of the Native Americans offence is an 8 1/2 foot statue of William McKinley. McKinley stands accused of the slaughter of Native people in the US and abroad. Of course he is not alive to defend himself.
” Put a rope around his neck and tear it down,” Chris Peters shouted at a rally held at the statue, which has been located in the town square for a quarter of a century, with no one previously offended.
Peters, heads the Arcata based Seventh Generation fund for Indigenous people , called McKinley a proponent of “settler colonialism” that “savaged, raped and killed.”
One Arcata resident ” is so upset over the McKinley statue he protested for 26 straight days at the statue. He held a sign “This Christmas, give the gift of not supporting racism and murder. Remove the statue.”
Once again I say how do people live in California? And at what point do we tell these small groups that are offended by statues to piss off?
