Atlanta Protesters Vandalize ‘Peace Monument’

Protesters vandalized and attempted to take down the Peace Monument in Piedmont Park in Atlanta on Sunday, mistaking it for a pro-Confederate statue.

The protesters were marching in response to the violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday where one woman died after being deliberately hit by a car, and two law enforcement personnel were killed when the helicopter they were in crashed.

“The Atlanta march traveled from Woodruff Park to Piedmont Park Sunday, where some damaged the Peace Monument, erected in 1911,” a blog on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution website said. “The sculpture features an angel standing above a Confederate soldier, guiding him to lay down his weapon.”

But the memorial attacked by protesters — some dressed in black and wearing masks — was erected to encourage healing and reconciliation.

    It’s not about what any piece of art represents, it’s about the innate hate of the ones attacking and defacing public property over imagined slights!

    • Bandit

      Sandra you have part of the answer there but it is also total hatred of the country as it is, look at the types of flags the antifa thugs are and have been using, ALL the flags are based on communist flags.

      • sandraleesmith46

        And/or Muslim flags.

        • Bandit

          Sandra read my post above and pass it around, it is from a speech that ABRAHAM LINCOLN heavenly long after he was made president.

      • suerobb

        But Democrats and the left cannot say they are as bad as the white neonazis. Both want to wipe out the other. Perhaps we should let them.

        • Bandit

          Read my full post below, it is from a speech from Abraham Lincoln.

  • Wolfman (kafir harbi)

    BLM and Antifa. Idiots one and all. Stop this before you fall.

  • patriot2015

    Just gose to prove no matter how hard you try, YOU JUST CAN`T FIX STUPID. These clowns are just like isis tear down history and leave nothing in it`s place. Liberal gone mad.

    • yennikcm

      the Dem pols in these cities are backing the nescient horde of lunatic communists

    • donl

      The Leftists in this country seem to be doing the same thing ISIS did in Palmyra Turkey. Erase OUR History and YOUR Heritage.

      • No mater what or how hard they try you can’t destroy history. These folks are delusional. I was born in Ohio but raised in Texas which has a history of over throwing oppression. Sana Anna learned the hard way. These idiots are going to push too hard and find themselves deep in a war they can’t win. It’s coming as sure as there is a hell. Keep ypur power dry and guns loaded.

      • Marlene

        Yes, that is what I said, it is history and destroying monuments is not going to change history. As a matter of fact I think a southerner should be able to have a southern flag hang at their house….unless this means something other than they are proud to be a southerner just as I am proud to be an American.

  • Snufy

    To call them demented morons would be a compliment to those lefties.

  • Onebrogan Brogan

    Shows how stupid blacks are….doesn’t matter….the talking points said remove statues…..it is sad blacks can’t think or reason

    • Sandy white

      YEP it does because if they woul only think for themselves they might learn something. They act like a bunch of sheep. It’s time to stop blaming everything u don’t like on others (whites) and/or the fact that that u r black. I am NOT privileged by any means but I sure wish I was. I never get a pay raise and I sure don’t make $15/hour! As for the statue(s) of Robert E Lee, if u would read u would know that he was not wealthy (wife’s family money), he hated slavery but was trying to keep southern states from seceding from the Union. Anyone with brain matter loves and respects this man. GROW UP ASSHOLES. One day u might just get what u SAY u want; then u and the rest of us will be standing in shit and saying HEIL! And by the way, I’m a neo-racist dickheads. LOL

      • Lee also was very committed to serving this country as a solider in the US army. As an engineer in corps he was in charge off opening the Mississippi river.He was a key player in the Mexican war by finding a way around Mexico city allowing Gen Scot to defeat Sana Anna.

        • Sandy white

          He was a great American. How sad that his name and place in history are being maligned.

    • Sorry but you missed one important point. From the videos I see there were a lot of white collage age kids .Part of the indoctrination they under go. My country has gone down hill. I am 80 years old and never seen it this bad before.,

      • Marlene

        I am 83 and seems many have no respect for people or property. On the other hand, being born during the great depression and then WW11, there was not much of anything to fight over. We got food stamps, gas stamps, etc. but it was not an addition it was what we lived on. One day my sister had a small pan of fudge candy she had made. She was walking across the concrete yard of the projects with it. I asked for some and she was telling me no. That was not the way we were raised so I said, “We are suppose to share” and she gave me a smiggin (this is the smallest amount you can give. Years later she told .me that x amount of girls had donated the sugar and they were to devide. She said our step father told her she could have the sugar but that meant she would have NO sugar the rest of the month for her cereal. no wonder she did not want to share it was not all hers to share

    • Marlene

      That was not fair, all blacks are not stupid, some are very intelligent and some are not just as in the white race, of which I am

  • Estoban

    Communism is as ferocious and violent as ISIS. These are TERRORISTS acting.

    • Sandy white

      It’s NOT just communism. That’s a whole different ideology. It’s nazism in its finest form with big $ backers like Soros the big nazi sympathizer who turned in his own people!! PIG!

      • Holy Joe

        Sandy, Nazi is short for ‘National Socialism’ Fascism, Communism and Nazism are all historically socialist movements initiated by the Socialist Terroristic Intelligentsia (Soviet Word origin) of Italy,Germany and Russia. The Russians were first. All three of these Parties used the absolute dregs of their own social structures as street muscle to dominate the masses into total submission. This is what is happening in the U.S.A.today with such movements as BLM & the black masked Antifa. The Germans created some very expressive terminologies and fundamental words such as the “untermensch” who staffed their offices of political terror. The correct translation of the shortened term ‘Nazi’ – is “Natzionale Deutsche Democratish Arbeiters Partei” (give or take a few missspellings). That translates to National German Democratic Workers Party. No one will dispute that in the main they themselves were all composed of “untermenschen.” The Nazies were also Socialists – they only differed from the Soviets in their choice of methods for terrorizing the plebes in the streets to submit to their political will. See any differences with BLM & Antifa, or the Democratic Communist Party droogs in Congress?

  • Glennfriend67

    These thugs should be arrested and charged with terrorism, because that is exactly what they are doing-performing acts of terror. Do not allow anyone to play the race card, either. That hand has been massively overplayed, and we’ve had enough of it.

    • I agree. It’s time to drop it. I was a solider and a firefighter. I lived and worked with all kinds of folks, black brown oriental and never feared they would desert in the thick of danger so take your racists dribble else wear. So i am in full agreement with you.

      • Glennfriend67

        Hi, Old Sarge, nice to hear from you again. I’ve always had plenty of friends of all different colors, and no one cared what color anyone else was. None of this was a serious problem until He-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named took over the White House 8 years ago, and plowed ahead with his “fundamental transformations.” He was a liar from the start and has destroyed this country. Whether it has been destroyed beyond repair remains to be seen. It was his racism, though, that gave rise to BLM and Antifa. He’s responsible for ISIS, too. He’s been more racist and bigoted than any white person ever thought of being. He could even give Archie Bunker lessons! A more despicable waste of space never walked the earth. He’d be in great company with Ho Chi Min, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot, Josef Stalin. No wonder he got along so well with Psycho Boy, aka Kim Jong-Un.(and crazy daddy Kim Jong-Il)
        Is it my imagination, or does it seem to you, too, that the smarter people become, the less common sense they have?(or, to quote my Navy Chief dad, the less G2 they have?) To me, there’s a difference between being intelligent and being smart. Intelligent people still have plenty of G2. Smart people have none. They’re so smart, they’re stupid. Ignorance can be fixed, but there’s just no fixing stupid.
        These domestic terroristas ought to spend some time cooling their heels in prison. Then they should be made to repair all the damage they’ve done, and it should have to come out of their own pockets. Maybe then they’ll think twice before doing something so idiotic again. I won’t hold my breath, though.
        Good talking to you again, my friend, and thank you again for your service to our country. I give you a virtual hug!

        • Marlene

          Many years ago I said people are getting dumber; that they cannot think for themselves. They h ave to have a machine do everything for them. I ordered something at McDonald’s and she took the order wrong, thus overcharging me. She supposedly subtracted the drink and gave me that change back. It did not compute in jead. but she could not understand that my order, take from my money should give me back xx change. She got the manger and she did the math the same way…even on a machine. If one puts in the wrong numbers on a machine you will still get the wrong answer. Maybe they should have done the math in their head it would have been quicker than punching in wrong numbers
          .

          • Glennfriend67

            So very true, Marlene. My very first job (and this will date me, but what the hell! my birthday is tomorrow and I’ll be 50, so there!) was at a five and dime (and I’ll bet you $100 kids these days have no idea what THAT is!) as a cashier. We used the old manual registers, or, as I liked to call them, the “bang-bang-pound!-duck!” registers. I think you know the ones I’m taking about. The ones where you had to bang the number keys in with your finger, then pound the return key. When you pounced the total key, you learned to duck out of the way, or you got the register drawer in your gut. It got to be good exercise! Then you took the customer’s money and counted back the change. And I was taught to count back change. That is something I’ve never forgotten how to do, even after 30+ years. I never allowed myself to rely on the fancier computer registers, because I could have keyed in the amount wrong. And remember the old manual credit card machines? You stuck the customer’s card in there, put the carbon paper in there, and racked that sucker across as hard as you could to get the imprint. Then you had to fill the receipt out, run it through the Nabanco machine and get an approval number. It took for-EVER! But you know what? We checked people’s signatures back then, and there was a lot less mistakes and a LOT less identity fraud, because we PAID ATTENTION!!!!!!!! Which is more than I can say for today’s lazy butt generation.

    Stupid Naygars……downfall of this once, great country because of them (welfare, shootings, do-nothings, takers, drugs, take-over of sports). PUKE

  • UofHPaul

    As long as the liberal authorities stand back and condone these acts, they will continue to occur. Police should have the go-ahead to intervene and put a stop to it. After the smoke settles on all of this, all of these mayors and governors should be prosecuted.

  • tyedyed69

    Liberals are like The Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz. Real facts aren’t needed for them since they have their Narrative. If only they had a brain. They have become useful idiots of the dems/obama/Soros Anti-American movement. AntiFa and BLM are Terrorist thugs spreading Violence everywhere they go. Way past time to shut them down.

  • Estell Newton

    That statue was made recent enough that they should have known the meaning behind it.

  • dank440

    Brilliant! so now they are beating up angels!

  • suerobb

    This statue and a Lincoln bust vandalized… common denominator? White faces. They want to take down all symbols of white people.
    If there are statues of the great black slave traders who sold their own people, I tell them to go take them down.

  • nmasterson

    We need to re-instate the draft and since these Millennial fools have nothing better to do than protest they should be the first ones drafted. If they then choose to leave the country its a win situation for us.

    • Sandy white

      Now that’s a plan!! Put their rebellious lazy asses to work. LOL. They won’t like that for sure.

  • Bandit

    This government must be preserved in spite of the acts of any man or set of men. Nowhere in the world is presented a government of so much liberty and equality. To the humblest and poorest among us are held the highest privileges and positions.
    What constitutes the bulwark of our liberty and independence? It is not the frowning battlements or bristling sea coasts, our army and navy. These are not our reliance against tyranny. Our reliance is in the of liberty which GOD has planted in us. Our defense is in the spirit which prizes liberty as the heritage of all men, in all lands everywhere.
    Destroy this spirit (and you have planted the seeds of despotism at your own doors).
    At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic giant to Stephen ocean and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of europe, Asia and Africa combined could not by force take a drink from the Ohio or make a track on the Blue Ridge. At what point, then is the approach of danger to expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up among us. It CA:-)not come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we our selves must be its author and its finisher. As a nation of free men we must live through all time or die by suicide.
    Surely God would not have created a being as man with the ability to grasp the infinite to exist only for a day! No. No. Man was made for immortality.

    This is from a speech that ABRAHAM LINCOLN gave, and everything he talked about is about to happen. These antifa thugs are trying to destroy this Nation from the induce out. We as a Nation will be taken down by the despotism of the left…..

    • sandraleesmith46

      Actually, he was wrong then and it’s even more wrong now. Lincoln and that war aren’t what history has been portraying for decades, even when I was in school. I learned truth after school. Yes we will be destroyed from within, not without. although enemies from without are a large part of the cause: communism and Islam alike. By infiltrating and influencing our leaders and education system, thus younger generations, they are doing so. The fact is the divide in our nation is just too great now. There are 2 diametrically opposed views of what America is and should be; Constitutional or socialist; and the 2 are incompatible as Christianity and Islam are. Either 1 must capitulate, or we must divide permanently, or there will be civil war. Those are the options.

  • tushambi

    All of this activity is funded and carried out by Democrats, Socialists, Communists, anarchists, and globalists who want to create a race war and topple the government. The American Blacks live better in America than any place one earth. They have held every high office in government ,Industry,sports and Education,etc. There are Black billionaires like OPRAH, and many thousands of BLACK millionaires in sports,entertainment retailing and other professions. The civil war ended over 150 years ago . There is nothing that can change that. Black Americans joining hate groups now will work against them. The more money the government has to spend putting down insurrection the less it has for worthwhile things. It also works against Blacks when they appear in the media as violent,criminal and destructive.

    • randy

      now their gonna ask you ……SO WHATS YOUR POINT

      • Marlene

        Amusing and so true

    • Sandy white

      So my guess is that’s what the dumbasses r. “Violent, criminal, destructive.” Because they are incapable of learning from their mistakes. 😝😖

      • Marlene

        That is a great quot people should remember…If you do not pay attention to the past you are bound to repeat it. I actually looked up all my ancestors last names and found none that had slaves

    • Holy Joe

      Just think of all those poor black slaves in the NFl, AFL, NBAA etc. – who are each being paid millions of $$$$$ every year to be ‘enslaved’ playing Football or Basketball just to entertain the democratic masses. Some of them only have $10,000,000 hovels to live, in and can only drive around in $500,000
      jalopies, that no self respecting hard working minimum wage sports fan would be seen dead in – after all he can just afford his game tickets and the payments on his five year old Toyota or Honda. The ticke paying worker has his pride after all, and he stands for the National Anthem before the games start. The players are now excused this chore or obligation, as they might easily tire from carring around their heavily laden wallets all day.

      • Marlene

        I had wondered if the blacks that make a lot of money help poorer blacks; even in other countries where they have no food. One of these wars showed a black little child so thin there were only bones trying to crawl to some food and soon after she was seen doing this she died. Now, that will break you heart

  • Ira W. Cotton

    Regarding the Lincoln speech cited below: even the Lincoln monument was defaced by protestors recently. How disgusting! Trump was right to call out both sides. Now he’s being called a fascist and racist and anything else the left can dream up. What nonsense! Both left and right are entitled to free speech, so long as they express it peacefully. Too often the leftist protestors think they are free to perform acts of violence on people and property.

  • Jmanjo

    There is not a liberal in the country with a working brain!

  • Robert Kahlcke

    Better Dead than Red, anyone remember.

  • Marty Koval

    Most likely these protesters were from Antifa which is a liberal based anti-fascists, anti-conservative, anti-God, anti- democracy, anti-peace organization. They are forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism through the force of intimidation and violence.

    They damaged the Peace monument, because they do not believe in peace being an effective means for change.

    Without God in their lives, the Antifa protesters have no moral compass and will do whatever their evil harden hearts want to do. Which is: Hate, misery, fighting, intolerance, hostility, wickedness, disloyalty, harshness and rashness. These are the traits of Satan, who is the Great Deceiver, who has convinced these violent demonstrators to emulate him.

    Anyone who is a member and supporter of Antifa is a child of Satan and will be led by him into the dark world of eternal death.

    • Holy Joe

      Very nicely said.

  • Holy Joe

    The ultra Leftist Congressional Communard of the Democratic Party became somewhat peeved or even miffed when their criminally inspired and self anointed & elected Presidential Virago Candidate Clinton Mk.2 was rejected by the thinking element within the mass electorate across the 50 States. So they have regressed to what they do best – street violence and wanton destruction of publc property in their false concept of Communist Freedoms. That is freedom to riot and kill at will anyone who does not believe in their false fantasies. Do thinking Americans dress themselves in all black attire, wear masks, openly carry clubs & knives to attack anyone that dares to have opposing views ? No – this is the approved action of our Communistic Democratic Party, who are dedicated to street violence to cow the rest of us into submission to their concept of Political Happiness like the people of Cuba and Venezuela now so gladly and gleefully enjoy. (For those Democrats not too familar with the nuances of American English, I am indulging in irony (sarcasm, nothing to do with laundry). Those who erase history will have no future. Some political BLM nugu was suggesting that all white people should be ejected from modern North America – so what would we then have ? Oh yes ! – just one great big new Haiti. That is a nice ‘progressive’ thought for you all.

  • Teresa

    Hey, if you “paid for” by Democrat chaotic agitators want to protest, all of us fans from last year will STOP going to the games AND boycotting the channels that show the games! I dare say there are more of us Americans than there are of YOU anti-Americans! Kapernack only got to play football because so many troops fought and died so he could!! HIS freedom was paid for by our military, past and present. I suggest if you want to play football or have him play football, you go to Iran where you can protest whatever you want and see where that gets you!!!

    anyone with a Nazi sign, or whatever means of Hitler must be arrested and put in jail for advocating terrorist actions. Germany’ Nazi has not bearing in our Nation, even in Germany they arrest Nazi sympathizer , why not here??.. we must start fighting back at all KKK, Nazi’s propaganda. America is not in Europe. another thing … Let it be clear, There is a big WALL when you die, and there is a Gate in Heavens and only the very well Bible vetted goes thru that Gate of Heavens. SO, we must have a very well vetted Policy that no one comes into our country thru the Gate of Immigration.

    I was born in the North so I am not saying this as an older southerner vandalizing of monuments make no sense to me. So the North won that war. Those monuments aree history. If the public do not like them being outside then vote to have them places in a museum from donations. Someone tell me why the younger southerners try to destroy history
