The city of Chicago promptly and quietly removed an iconic Christopher Columbus statue from Grant Park on Friday morning, utilizing the cover of dark to remove it from its place at 3AM.

The Columbus statue had been targeted in a mob assault by rioters last week, with a group of leftists throwing a hail of projectiles at police officers on site to defend them statue from a plan to tear it down.

Representatives of the local Italian American community blasted the mayor for caving to the demands of the rioters, pointing out that the piece of history is being erased totally arbitrarily and without democratic oversight.

“The Italian American community feels betrayed,said Pasquale Gianni of the Joint Civic Committee of Italian Americans. “The Mayor’s Office is giving into a vocal and destructive minority. This is not how the Democratic process is supposed to work.” The historic statue was created in 1933 by Italian sculptor Carlo Brioschi. It’s reportedly being placed into city storage under the guise of public safety.

In a historical twist, the city of Chicago rose to global prominence through its celebration of the 1893 World Fair, which the city titled the “World Columbian Exposition” in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of Columbus’ discovery of the Americas.

Another small element of American heritage, history, and legacy has been erased at the hands of a raving, violent mob who lack the capacity and consideration to create great works of their own.

Antifa Threatens Free Speech Rally Acid

Journalist Andy Ngo, who has been targeted by ANTIFA thugs for reporting on the group, revealed evidence to the U.S. Senate on Tuesday about the terror group’s violent activity.

Ngo appeared at a hearing convened by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) to get to the bottom of the left-wing violence that is sweeping the country. He countered the false narrative pushed by Democrats that ANTIFA is not a terrorist group and has not committed any murders.

Democrats refuse to acknowledge the havoc that is being waged in cities by their constituents and are apparently content to let it happen for their own benefit.

Cruz was not buying their spin and put them in the spotlight for their unwillingness to condemn left-wing domestic terrorism.

Ngo was eventually given the floor and allowed to set the record straight regarding ANTIFA.

“Antifa has mastered the art of making its violence appear innocuous. For example projectiles that look like water balloons can be filled with chemicals. Small sling shots can be used to project rocks, glass, and ball bearings into police lines. Umbrellas can be fashioned with discreet pocket knives. Powerful handheld lasers can cause serious damage to the eyes,” Ngo said.

“Antifa and its allies have made rioting an art form in Portland. They have access to rich streams of cash flowing from platforms like GoFundMe, Venmo, and CashApp. Any conspirator arrested in Portland is instantly bailed out and ready for the next time of violent protest,” he continued.

“I come to you today for senators of both parties. Antifa’s goal is not only to abolish the criminal justice system, it is to bring down the republic itself. ‘Burn it down,’ they say. But don’t take my word for it. Go read their literature, listen to their chants, and look at their graffiti messages. Portland is the canary in the coal mine for America. Look to my city to see what happens when a group like Antifa is left unchecked,” Ngo added.

Ngo’s full address can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on the orgy of destruction caused by ANTIFA/Black Lives Matter rioters nationwide:

A driver was reportedly struck with gunfire after being accosted by a Black Lives Matter (BLM) mob in the streets of Provo, Utah.

A video has been produced of the scene in which the driver was mobbed by a group of rioters before apparent shots were fired. The driver was eventually able to get through the mob following a terrifying confrontation. Reporter Andy Ngo confirmed that the driver was in fact shot by one of the BLM terrorists…

The police are currently investigating the incident and reviewing the footage. They have yet to press charges against any of the BLM rioters.

“Several protesters began crowding around the vehicle. A male protester ran to the SUV on the passenger side, pointed a handgun at the driver and shot one round,” said Deputy Chief John Geyerman, Provo PD.

They confirmed that one individual fired two shots, and one of the shots struck the driver who suffered non-threatening injuries as a result of the blast.

“[A video of the incident] shows that the protester conceals the firearm and continues to protest,” Provo PD announced in a Twitter post. “This same protester later approached another vehicle at 500 North and University Avenue striking and breaking the window with the handgun.”

Hootie Hennessey, a BLM supporter who documents the movement on his YouTube page, believes that the rioters went too far in how they attacked the man’s vehicle and shot him.

“There is inequality, but the way that the group yesterday goes about inciting change isn’t going to bring the change that they expect,” Hennessey said. “You just don’t fight evil with evil, and that’s what we saw yesterday.”

Cruz’s hearing was a good start but it must be followed with action that puts ANTIFA terror leaders behind bars.
