Political Violence: GOP Office Vandalized with Brick Through Window, Graffiti

Published

on

A GOP office in Nebraska was vandalized by anti-ICE savages late Monday night, according to the Lincoln Journal Star. 

“Vandals shattered glass doors and spray-painted “Abolish ICE” early Tuesday morning at the Nebraska Republican Party offices in downtown Lincoln, a police spokeswoman said,” the report says.

According to Nebraska GOP executive director Kenny Zoeller, the party has filed a police report regarding the incident. Investigators are reportedly reviewing surveillance footage to identify the culprits.

Over the weekend, protestors gathered in cities around the country to protest a decades-old immigration policy that temporarily separates children from parents who cross the Southern border illegally. Many protestors called for the outright abolition of ICE.

Zoeller blamed the vandalism on “increasingly radical rhetoric of national Democrat leaders.”

Recently, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called for “push back” against Trump supporters and officials.

“The American people have put up with this president long enough,” she said. “What more do we need to see? What more lies do we need to hear?” she yelled. “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them!”

The vandalism of the GOP office in Nebraska comes at a time of increasingly strained political tension.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielson was chased out of a Mexican restaurant, as was senior Trump advisor Stephen Miller. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was refused service at a Lexington, VA restaurant Saturday.

Miller’s apartment in Washington, D.C. was recently surrounded by protestors who also tacked up “Wanted” signs around the city, calling him a “white nationalist.”

City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”

There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.

Published

on

The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”

“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.

Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.

The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.

Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”

Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.

Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
