On June 7, 2020, Black Lives Matter rioters knocked down a statue of English merchant Edward Colston.
The rioters attached a rope to statue on Colston Avenue in Bristol, United Kingdom on June 7 before pulling it down as a large crowd jumped for joy. The vandals then jumped on the statue.
The Guardian reported that historian David Olusoga likened this iconoclastic action to the toppling of the statue of Saddam Hussein in Iraq. On the other hand, home secretary, Priti Patel called on the police to respond. In comments made to Sky News, Patel remarked:
“I think that is utterly disgraceful and that speaks to the acts of public disorder that have actually now become a distraction from the cause in which people are protesting about.”
Superintendent Andy Bennett, of Somerset and Avon police, stated that his force was conducting an investigation into criminal damage.
Bennett said to the BBC he understood that Colston was “a historical figure that’s caused the black community quite a lot of angst over the last couple of years.” He added, “Whilst I am disappointed that people would damage one of our statues, I do understand why it’s happened, it’s very symbolic.”
"Whilst I am disappointed … I do understand why it’s happened"

“You might wonder why we didn’t intervene and why we just allowed people to put it in the docks – we made a very tactical decision, to stop people from doing the act may have caused further disorder and we decided the safest thing to do, in terms of our policing tactics, was to allow it to take place.”
The mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees, remarked: “I know the removal of the Colston Statue will divide opinion, as the statue itself has done for many years. However, it’s important to listen to those who found the statue to represent an affront to humanity.”
Although Colston was known as a slave trader, he made numerous philanthropic contributions that helped build Bristol.
It’s becoming clear that the political correctness crusades that have marked America are being exported to Europe. The Western Left does not care about preserving the West and is now working to erase history as we know it.
The West is going through very troubling times indeed. It will take a ccourageous Right to be able t o effectively confront it.
Hack Economist Paul Krugman Celebrates the Death of Elderly White People
On June 30, 2020, economist Paul Krugman expressed his desire for the death of White Americans.
He tweeted, “Reality is coming for white supremacists driving golf carts” in reference to an article from Bloomberg News that highlighted how the Wuhan virus pandemic is particularly deadly and disproportionately impacting older segments of the American population.
According to Bloomberg, “record numbers of Floridians 75 and older are testing positive for Covid-19,” according to a June 29 report.
The report added:
Florida hasn’t seen a departure from its relatively low rate of Covid-19 deaths, but it can take weeks from onset of symptoms to death, and the surge in infections is recent.
The new positivity rate — which measures the proportion of people testing positive for the first time compared to the day’s overall testing — started climbing significantly about two weeks ago.
Common sense measures such as quarantining and isolating the elderly population make sense in these circumstances. But total lockdowns are an overreach.
To the point of Krugman race-baiting, this is not a surprise given his status as a mainstream economist.
Political correctness is his M.O., from pushing central banking to perpetuating destructive identity politics.
The Right will need to assert itself against this mob and keep them from gaining power.
More importantly, they must implement policies such as defunding public education at all levels to prevent these people from further consolidating power.
