EXPECT MORE OF THIS … 

|| By FITSNEWS ||  Vandals in Charleston, S.C. spray-painted the words “Black Lives Matter” on a Confederate memorial in White Point Garden – part of the city’s historic downtown battery area.

The red spray paint was first observed by police officers Sunday evening – and a green tarp was placed over the base of the monument to hide the graffiti.

The defacing comes in the aftermath of last week’s “Holy City Massacre,” a horrific, racially motivated church shooting at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in downtown Charleston, S.C.

Unveiled in 1932 as a tribute to the “Defenders of Charleston – Fort Sumter,” the monument was erected by the Charleston Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.

Neville chamberlain: If we just appease these nazis, they will give us what we want.
Ted E Bear: If we just remove the flag from the statehouse, all these problems will go away.

Next time a black guy is shot, expect fits to bemoan the cost of cleaning vandalism off of confederate monuments/street signs as an impetus to remove any reference to the confederacy from any public space in South Carolina.

Vandalism is just their way of dealing with things, I’m surprised they wasn’t looting and neighborhoods burned.

“…and a green tarp was placed over the base of the monument to hide the graffiti…”

What, they couldn’t afford to rent a pressure washer? I’ll loan then mine, it would take less time to clean the statue than it would to “drape a tarp”.

Those vandals have sent out about a million —- hope their teachers were on the list — they’d be proud of their progress.

I saw a better picture of it earlier today, they did actually go back and add the second T but it still looks like they spelled the word mater.

CONFESSION: I do have fun with ordering food or meals, especially with fast-food clerks. Sometimes my order is “a soup sandwich on a waterproof roll”, or
” grits ‘n greens ‘n beans ‘n things”
(try saying the second one quickly with a musical tone)

If I order a particularly large amount of food and I see the waitress reacting I will then throw in a Diet Coke at the end to freak them out.

These are the type people that create folks like Dylann Roof. They are just as instrumental in the hatred and divisiveness as Sharpton,Jackson,The NAACP and the Democrats!

the sooner these monuments of hate come down the sooner socio-economic status of blacks everywhere will rise; these are the only impediments and they are just effing stone monuments, bring them down!

The flag is coming down and it is the end of racism. There will be no more racism…from today onward.

It was meant to say: Blacks love maters!

Hmmm…a mater sam-itch is great with white bread and Duke’s mayo.
