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.
RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel Privately Doubts Voter Fraud Claims But Wants to Appear Like She’s “Fighting” for the President
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel is continuing to differentiate her private and public stances vis-à-vis the contested presidential election and ongoing voter fraud claims.
In a Politico article titled “The Inside Story of Michigan’s Fake Voter Fraud Scandal,” Tim Albert reported that McDaniel has privately expressed her doubts about any “scalable” voter fraud in Michigan, but that she still needs to “demonstrate a willingness to fight” for the president.
McDaniel had previously received the president’s endorsement to remain RNC chair, and as of now she has no serious challengers. But it is possible that a challenger will arise, such as Cory Gardner, a Republican senator from Colorado defeated on November 3 by Democrat John Hickenlooper. He is seen as part of the GOP establishment and, if he were to run, could force McDaniel to fully embrace her pre-Trump “establishment” image once again.
Big League Politics wrote earlier this month about McDaniel’s quiet withdrawal from President Trump and his America First agenda, referencing this New York Times article that describes the fight between Trump and the RNC over voter data.
“Right now, the RNC and the president are in a tug of war over the immense treasure trove of voter data that was collected during the 2020 presidential campaign. Many RNC insiders want to horde the intelligence, which can be used to anoint an establishment-friendly heir apparent to replace Trump, such as former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley or Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas,” Big League Politics’ Shane Trejo wrote.
McDaniel is putting herself in a tough spot. The left sees her as a spreader of “lies” about voter fraud that, in her mind, she knows to be “lies,” while those on the right see her as privately abandoning the president and maintaining a façade.
Either way, RNC leadership is looking very weak both now and for the foreseeable future.
