    Who will try to stop them?

    Apparently the Washington Monument is on the list of history that needs to be erased.

    Plans apparently exist to bring it down with a truck bomb.

    Nothing, the Democrats will crow on national news, the Republicans will scurry out to the parking lot when a mic is put in front of their face.

    It will not be taken down with a law.

    If it gets torn down, it will be rebuilt.

    There is no way we Americans will stand for it to go that far. Basically, if it gets bombed and destroyed, it's on. "The Boogaloo". "SHTF". Whatever you want to call it, it's on at that point. And this is America, so you will have Americans fighting to keep America American. Those on the other side will find out just how far real American roots run when they see they are part of a vast minority.

    I hope that day never comes... but who knows, we all might be better off if it does, may whatever you hold holy help us all.

    I hope nearby patriots defend it if the police and military can't or won't. It would take me the better part of two days to get there to help.

    I really don't care.

    I'm pretty sure Franklin, Washington, Jefferson, et al. would be embarrassed at what we've become.

    Very dangerous undertaking. It's a federal thing. No city courts or locally elected prosecutors.

    If anything Washington-related is on the hit list, then I guess DC and Washington state will have to be renamed.

    Did you guys know there is another Washington Monument that's NOT in DC? It was the first one built, and it's in Maryland. I went to the top when I hiked the AT in 1999. This one doesn't have the same level of visibility or protection, and sits in a small state park right on the trail.

    I suspect every bit of our history is at risk, no matter where it is today.

    So assuming it gets bombed it tomorrow, who is going to rush out to fight who? What exactly does the "boogaloo" look like? Do the two sides post a message on social media regarding where everyone is supposed to meet and duke it out?

    What will happen???
    Conservative "patriots" will take to their keyboards across the country, voicing outrage and saying "this is out of control!"
    Liberal 'white-folk" will work overt-time at justifying it's "need" to be torn down in the name of "the cause." While at the same time wetting the bed because they know "this is out of control!"
    The protesters will continue tearing all symbols of America down because that is the direction they are being steered.

    This disgrace brought on this nation is unforgivable. Laws are only for peasants and sheeple. Religion has been destroyed/discredited. Socialism/Communism has taken over thanks to Soros and the NWOs. Very Sad....

    Let's see, would that be the same Feds who prosecuted Gen. Flynn? Or the same Federal judiciary who now won't permit the case against him to be dismissed now that prosecution has been discontinued?

    Yea, they'll save the country. [​IMG]
