Author and right wing activist Jack Posobiec has flown to Seattle to demand the city remove a statue of Communist dictator Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, better known as Vladimir Lenin — in protest of the removals of Confederate statues across the nation.
Posobiec joined local right-wing activists at the statue on Wednesday afternoon with signs condemning the glorification of Communism.
The battle over the removal of Confederate statues has heated up in recent weeks. In Charlottesville, a protest of the planned removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee turned deadly.
Days later, in North Carolina, a mob of activists pulled down and destroyed the Confederate Soldiers Monument.

Meanwhile, in Baltimore, statues have been repeatedly vandalized to the point that the city caved to the alt-left’s demands and removed them in the dead of night — just hours after receiving threats that they would also be toppled and destroyed.

Baltimore’s Confederate Soldiers and Sailors monument was one of those removed in the early morning hours of Wednesday after being vandalized with red paint. Others included statues of Confederate generals Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, a Confederate Women’s Monument, and a statue of a former Supreme Court justice.

Fed up with the erasure of historical artifacts, the right is striking back and has began campaigning to remove statues of leftist figures including Bill Clinton and Lenin. One of those people is Posobiec, who boarded a flight from Washington, DC, early Wednesday morning to confront the hypocrisy in Seattle directly.

16 foot statue of Lenin in Seattle. He only killed a few million people. Why isn't the left tearing down his statue?

“Alt Left Marxist organizations have committed a campaign of violent terrorism against peaceful American citizens for over 14 months. From the 2016 conventions to the presidential inauguration to the events of Berkeley and Charlottesville, these domestic terrorists known as Antifa have gone largely unpunished and underreported in the wake of their evil,” Posobiec told Big League Politics.
Posobiec added that the Lenin statue is worshipped by the “Marxist terror movement,” as Antifa regularly glorify the man responsible for the deaths of millions.
“The hate statue of Russian Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin is worshipped as an idol of the Marxist terror movement. Marxism is responsible for over 100 million deaths, the enslavement of billions, and nearly brought the world into nuclear war,” Posobiec said. “Marxist bigoted and racist regimes committed genocide after genocide during their hateful reign, against the Jews, the Poles, Ukrainians, gypsies, Cubans, Koreans, Cambodians, Tibetans, Muslims, and many others.”
He added that “Marxist hate squads hunted down homosexuals and subjected them to horrific ends in Soviet gulags.”
Posobiec, who previously interrupted the Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar that depicted a likeness of President Donald Trump being assassinated, frequently attempts to fight fire with fire — turning leftist tactics back on them.
“This statue represents Marxist hatred, bigotry, and genocide, a disgusting ideology that has no place in our society. Therefore, we call up the people of this country to demand this hateful statue be taken down and disposed of – hate has no place in our American nation,” Posobiec asserted.
On Tuesday, President Trump receive a wave of backlash from liberal media pundits and the alt-left for questioning how far the demands to remove statues will go.
“Is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You have to ask yourself where does it stop?” Trump said.
The president added that the removals are an attempt to change history and culture.
“George Washington was a slave owner. So will George Washington lose his status? Are we gonna take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? Do you like him, because he was a major slave owner. Are we gonna take down his statue? So it’s fine. You’re changing history, you’re changing culture,” Trump said.
Attorney General Bill Barr Folds to the Mob, Claims There is Systemic Racism in Law Enforcement
Barr said that law enforcement being unfair to blacks is a “widespread phenomenon.”
Attorney General Bill Barr has bent his knee to Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists, defending the lie of systemic racism during an interview with ABC News.
“I do think it is a widespread phenomenon that African American males, in particular, are treated with extra suspicion and maybe not given the benefit of the doubt,” Barr said to ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas during an exclusive interview.
“I think it is wrong if people are not respected appropriately and given their due,” he added, “and I think it’s something we have to address.”
Barr said that he is cheering on widespread reform in the wake of serial felon drug addict George Floyd’s death during a police encounter.
“Before the George Floyd incident I thought we were in a good place,” he said. “I think that this episode in Minneapolis showed that we still have some work to do in addressing the distrust that exists in the African American community toward law enforcement.”
Barr noted that he hopes Floyd’s death will serve as “a catalyst for the kinds of changes that are needed.”
Although Barr is paying lip service to BLM and throwing law enforcement under the bus, he has not yet joined the bandwagon to defund the police. He instead wants cops to be hamstrung and substituted with social workers in certain situations to deal with suspected criminals.
“We have to think about more investment in the police,” Barr said. “So one of the things we’ve been talking about is trying to direct some of the [Health and Human Services] money and grant programs and sync it up with law enforcement spending so we can enable the departments to have co-responders. That is, social workers and mental health experts who can go on certain kinds of calls to help.”
He cited a recent federal study conducted by the Justice Department’s civil rights division throwing law enforcement under the bus.
“We found, in that case, that there was a drug unit in the Springfield (Mass.) police department that was engaged in a pattern and practice of using excessive force,” Barr said.
Barr offered a very modest criticism of BLM during the interview for refusing to focus on the thousands of black lives that are taken by other black people.
“I also think [the phrase] is being used now – it is distorting the debate to some extent, because it is used really to refer almost exclusively to black lives that are lost to police misconduct,” he said. “Then you compare it to 8,000 homicides in the African American community, those are black lives that matter, too. And those are lives that are protected by the police.”
Barr’s response shows why Fox News host Tucker Carlson is saying that Republicans have failed abysmally in their response to a nationwide terror campaign from the Left. The weak response from the administration may cost Trump re-election in November.
