Antifa Groups Plan Nationwide "Deface Columbus Day" Acts For Monday

Tyler Durden's picture

Tomorrow's Columbus Day celebrations could turn violent, as various "antifa" anarchist groups have announced a nationwide campaign to deface Christopher Columbus statues during Monday's holiday.

According to PJ Media, at least five Christopher Columbus statues have already been vandalized in New York City in recent weeks, based on reports from Far Left Watch. In one case last month, vandals defaced a "larger-than-life" statue of Columbus in Central Park, leaving blood-red paint on his hands, and scrawled, "Hate will not be tolerated" and “#SomethingsComing” on its pedestal.

What is coming appears to be a coordinated campaign to destroy or deface monuments across the country on Columbus Day.  The NYC-based antifa group Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM) made the announcement on Thursday, September 21, calling on antifa groups nationwide to “decorate” their neighborhoods.

According to Far Left Watch, RAM is "an extremely militant group that advocates for the violent redistribution of property" and for "the abolition of gender."

The militant group recently hosted an "Our Enemies in Blue" anti-police workshop at its branch in Brooklyn, NY. RAM posted a video called "Against Columbus Day" on the antifa website It’s Going Down, showcasing destroyed monuments across the country and black-clad antifas pacing around menacingly to what appears to be 1980s German electropop.

"The battles lines have been drawn and white supremacists are on notice," the RAM group wrote in a statement on the website. "White nationalist statues are crumbling all over the US as our collective revolutionary power is growing."

While a recent poll showed that a majority of Americans support a holiday honoring Christopher Columbus, RAM called Columbus Day, October 9, "one of the most vile ‘holidays’ of the year." The group called on supporters "to take action against this day and in support of indigenous people in the US and abroad who have been victims of colonialism and genocide."

We are calling for groups to “decorate” their neighborhoods as they see fit: put up murals, wheatpaste posters, drop a banner, etc. On October 9th put a picture of your action on social media and use the hashtags below. With these actions multiplied around the country, we will make it unequivocally clear that revolutionaries will always stand with the indigenous!

Conveniently, the anarchist organization encouraged supporters to record and broadcast their crimes by using the hashtags #F*ckColumbusDay and #DestroyColonialism. By making it that much easier for the police to capture any potential lawbreakers tomorrow, we wonder how long before this "antifa" group is portrayed as yet another subversive infiltration organization used by Putin to sabotage and destroy the United States.

As far as the police is concerned, with antifa having given advance notice days in advance of its intended criminal acts, the arrests should be easy to make.

why arn’t these people being arrested, prosecuted and punished when they commit these acts of violence? I’m just one guy but i’be had just about enough of these assholes

This is part of the full court press. Have the sheep begging for more police more regulations and less freedoms. These fucking idiots either have no idea what they are doing or they are being paid and know exactly what theyre doing. 

Mr.BlingBling's picture

But there’s no reason for either. Just enforce the current fucking laws.

They're protesting a guy who lived FOUR HUNDRED YEARS AGO.  

How COMPLETELY irrelevant.  Go ahead and tear down every statue of 'ol Chris.  The difference it makes is.....????

Stop defacing statues and just say what you really want... a race war.  Just say it.  We'll be happy to oblige.

This kind of crap is totally unnecessary unless you are a seditious Marxist revolutionary.

It might be time to come down with both boots on this behavior.  

L.E.’s going to be mercilessly criticized by the left no matter what they do to try and preserve  order.

They might as well give the leftist whackos something to really bitch about.

If they want things to be like they were before the Spaniards arrived, perhaps we should cut their hearts out of their still living bodies.

Now T, you know the Arawaks, Caribes, Mayans & Aztecs were just docile beings living off the land in huts in complete harmonic balance with nature and all the competing tribal chieftains around them.

Besides, they weren't "white"...so you know its true...lol.

Let them enjoy their blissful ignorance in peace ;-)

what people forget is that columbus (1) freed the slaves, (2) cured disease, (3) founded the first single-payer healthcare system in the new world, (4) established lgbt inclusion as the law, (5) created a cryptocurrency-based lending system.

How long until Christmas (although commercially overdone), becomes the target of these thieves?

Enough is about to become all that is tolerable.

Go to Zona Colonial in Santo Domingo, stand in front of the statue of Cristobal Colon and shout out about "triggering".

I want to see what happens ;-)

Arrest them or blow them away.  Either is fine by me.  Live by the sword then die by the sword.

Until several warring, technologically advanced empires showed up and decided to throw their party in someone elses house. Sound familiar?

Got em drunk here and gave away a few trinkets (and blankets) to the locals as a (gift). Some got steel tools and others guns to help fight the enemy, as in the French fighting the English. Scalps were a French (trappers) idea, probably used as proof of a kill to get payment.

In the end, the locals were exterminated. The media says Las Vegas was the worst killing in American history, but even more casualties were to be had at Native American reservations. And others speak of Holocausts...

Antifa can go fuck themselves as far as I am concerned. However, truth of the matter is how history keeps repeating itself with history being written by the perps and the victms, well....

Lest I be misunderstood, its not an excuse, its a recognition of what was done. By cheiftains/kings/Europeans/natives.

Its a "human thing", those with the ability to wield great power will indeed use it and all the hand wringing, Monday morning quarterbacking and self introspection in the world will never change that ;-)

Sort of like the african chiefs capturing and selling their iwn to european slave traders? Yea, the locals here back then did the sane. Sigh....

If you're white or if you're not white and you own anything of value they are protesting you.

They want a do-over of the past four hundred years because they've only been taught the dark side of history. They somehow manage to ignore how much better off they are than anyone who lived four hundred years ago, black or white, while they continue to enjoy all the comfort afforded to them by the modern world.

Enough is enough.

Tension and tolerance is at elevated levels, and LV has yet to be decided if 'First Blood'.

Don't you think that society at large is under attack, and question by whom?

"Abolition of gender"?

Ok. Let's start by cutting off their dicks and tits.  They can go first.

This is full retard. Why aren't these people rounded up and arrested...like NOW?  The cops are nothing but ineffective morons, no, actual LIABILITIES in society. We have a faux veneer of law over an actual lawless nation.

The one complaint I have with Lincoln is that he didn't free the trannies.

columbus was a great discoverer but a bad dude from the point of view of the people who had already discovered america.

While I mourn the demise of the Natives, one cannot excuse their own troubled past without dehumanizing them.

The answer to the restrictions of a finite orb is to leave it.

Gerard K. O'Neil has studied the logistics in detail and Yes Gladys, it can be done and will be fun and profitable.

Here is his quote.

Clearly our first task is to use the material wealth of space to solve the urgent problems we now face on Earth: to bring the poverty-stricken segments of the world up to a decent living standard, without recourse to war or punitive action against those already in material comfort; to provide for a maturing civilization the basic energy vital to its survival.

Sorely missed.

Every time I hear Antifa..I think of Panti-fa. Don't remember who first labeled them that. But it fits.

"The difference it makes is.....????"

It's part of a cumulative effect of eradicating European-rooted culture. 

This will affect your children and grandchildren. As intended.

They probably think he was English, like Christopher Lee, and have no idea why some of his bosses called him Cristoforo Colombo or Cristobal Colon :D

"...why aren’t these people being arrested, prosecuted and punished"

Because... SESSIONS. Swish Sessions and Demoncrats within the DOJ.

Sessions is trying to save the American white race from drug addiction. Junkies are fucking worthless.

Yep, hope they show up nearby. They’re due some Texas hospitality...

why arn’t these people being arrested, prosecuted and punished when they commit these acts of violence?

Because TPTB want them doing these things.  "Don't be mad at the politicians, or the bankers, or the CFR...be mad at Antifa!  You need the politicians to control Antifa!  Antifa is dangerous!"

The most important thing to remember is this:  when they give you something to look at, instead try to figure out what they don't want you looking at.

My response: Looks like we have some new POTENTIAL RESIDENTS for Guantanamo Bay, As far as I am concerned, these people are TERRORISTS deserving of military incarceration.

This is WAR and ANTIFA is the enemy with which we are engaged!

LET'S END THIS BULLSHIT ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!! Time to play HARDBALL and the GLOVES ARE OFF!!!

Vandalism that results in serious damage to valuable property is a felony. Defendants charged with a felony can face more than a year in state prison and significant fines. Most states categorize damage to property worth less than $500 as a misdemeanor, while anything worth $500 or more is a felony. Lets hope the Pussy Police enforce the law for a change, instead of sitting around sipping coiffe in the nearest student center or alt left Starbucks.

Moar tolerant left ;-)

“I’m gay. You have to leave,” Borgman said in the video, which first appeared on Facebook.

“Are you denying us service?” activist Caytie Davis asked.

“I am. Yeah,” Borgman replied.

The pamphlets handed out by the group contain Bible verses about sin and abortion which Borgman found to be extremely offensive. Borgman then threatened to have gay sex in front of the group just so he could offend them.

“Can you tolerate my presence? Really?” the owner asked. “If I go get my boyfriend and f**k him in the a** right here, you’re going to tolerate that? Are you going to tolerate it?”

“That would be your choice,” activist Jonathan Sutherland replied.

“Answer my f***ing question!” Borgman yelled back. “No, you’re going to sit right here and f***ing watch it! Leave, all of you! Tell all your f**king friends don’t come here!”

I guess as long as they didn't refuse to bake them a Christian wedding cake then the discrimination is OK.
