Ok leftists, take a knee. Let’s chat. I know folks have lost their damn minds lately (see Terrorist-Supporting CAIR Wants Confederate References Removed. Because ‘Civil Rights’ and WATCH: Antifa Morons Fall for NYPD Officer’s Obvious Sarcasm) but here’s a little pro-tip. If you or someone you know is going to commit an act of vandalism on public property, don’t then go and brag about it.
You may think you did a good thing. The police will think you committed a crime. Because, in the real world, you committed a crime.
A North Carolina Central University student was arrested Tuesday in connection with a Monday night protest in which a Confederate statue in front of Durham County’s former courthouse was pulled down.
Takiyah Fatima Thompson, 22, was charged with participation in a riot with property damage in excess of $1,500 and inciting others to riot where property damage exceeds $1,500, both felonies, as well as damage to real property and disorderly conduct by injury to a statue, both misdemeanors.
Thompson used a ladder to scale the podium on which the Confederate Soldiers Monument had stood since 1924, then climbed the statue and wrapped a strap around it so other protesters could pull it down.
Those who can’t do teach. And those that can do even less, brag about that which they did then get tossed in the clink. I mean, seriously. Next time, wear a disguise or something.
Look, we’ve already pointed this out, but vandalizing or tearing down statues of historical figures you dislike is stupid. History happened. Not all of it was glowing and cheerful, comprised of rainbows and sunshine. Just because history wasn’t an episode of My Little Ponies doesn’t mean you get to tear down monuments of history. Ripping down statutes doesn’t rip down history. Spray painting statues doesn’t spray paint history. Am I being clear here?
And seriously. Wear a disguise. Maybe a fake mustache at least.
