Vandalism Run Amok

Night after night, in cities across the US, we witness marauding mobs toppling statues and celebrating as if such destruction constituted a great accomplishment. To these statute demolishers, and their apologists in our politics and the media, these destructive acts are righteous victories over the forces of racism. But performative violence against marble figures has nothing to do with George Floyd, police brutality or discrimination. At first, media reports stressed that vandals were concentrating on Confederate monuments. They presented the vandals as valiant avengers who were righting historical wrongs and ridding the US of symbols of its racist past. But it...

Truth: The New Hate Speech

"The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it." Void of any coherent argument or solid reasoning, hate and intolerance is the typical response you get from today's Liberal Left. Liberalism, as evidenced by the modern-day leading Democratic voices, is a bankrupt political philosophy that is inherently hypocritical. It claims to be based on tolerance but is only tolerant of those who agree with them. It asserts equality, except when the elites amass huge fortunes. And, in the end, it attempts to, by necessity, compel compliance with its oppressive and intolerant policies....

When Mob Rule Prevails

The tendency to lash out against things you deem offensive used to be a disagreeable tic of undergraduates. Now the impulse is spreading. The mob led by a cop-hating North Korea sympathizer that pulled down a 1924 statue of a generic Confederate soldier in Durham, N.C., was acting out of a well-justified sense that authorities were not in the mood to maintain order. Police did nothing except take pictures; Governor Roy Cooper meekly tweeted that “there is a better way to remove these monuments”; Durham County’s public-information office made Cooper sound like John Wayne when it declared, even more mildly,...

The Phony Outrage of the Left

The clamor to remove statues from the public square is a minority movement, and though many thoughtful commentators have said the statues should come down to signify that America has moved on from the divisions associated with the Civil War, the Left is not signing up for any implicit bargain. The failure of others to draw a distinction between true symbols of hate and flawed heroes such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson does not mean that conservatives can’t draw it. We can, we must, and we will do so. Nevertheless, an urge to destroy icons, once unleashed, can be...

Symbolism Over Substance

Where did our street activists get the idea that all of American history, including statues of its leaders and heroes, is ‘problematic’ and needs to be eradicated from our sight? Most likely, from our elite universities and most prominent media institutions. When protesters in Portland toppled George Washington recently, they spraypainted ‘1619’ on it. That was apt, because the toppling of statues embodies the outlook of the New York Times’ 1619 Project – an initiative that claims that the US was founded for the purpose of entrenching slavery, and will never escape that legacy. The ideology of ‘1619’ is one that says burn...
