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.

Michael Bloomberg SLAMMED in Dem Debate Pile-On
The billionaire was targeted by the Democratic primary field.
Michael Bloomberg was a target for the Democratic Primary field during his first debate stage appearance on Wednesday, being roundly criticized by several of the other five Democratic candidates participating.
The debate, held in Las Vegas days before the Nevada caucuses, differed from previous events on account of the smaller number of candidates.
Bloomberg has skyrocketed to a competitive second place in most polling of the Democratic primary, seeming to siphon most of Joe Biden’s support and staking out a claim as the Democrat to take on Bernie Sanders. The New York billionaire, who has not appeared on the ballot in the first two primary states, is aiming for a string of Super Tuesday victories.
Elizabeth Warren may have landed the most concrete blow of the night on the record-setting campaign spender, calling out Bloomberg for a history of insensitive remarks targeting women. She also went on to question Bloomberg about reports of him forcing women to sign non-disclosure agreements after sexually harassing them.

It’s probably safe to say that Bloomberg was the biggest loser of the night. The debate represented the first opportunity for the billionaire to face criticism from other Democrats, and he generally failed to answer the ire of the primary field with anything too meaningful.
Bloomberg’s biggest moment of the night may have been when he called out Sanders for owning three homes, likening him to the billionaires the democratic socialist frequently criticizes.
BLOOMBERG: "What a wonderful country we have! The most well-known socialist in the country is a millionaire with three houses."
SANDERS: "Well I live in Washington."
BLOOMBERG: "That's the problem."pic.twitter.com/bTWxnKVJFR

Sanders hit Bloomberg on his controversial record of instituting ‘Stop and Frisk’ policing practices as mayor of New York City, claiming that the program was discriminatory against Black and Latino people.
Even Buttigieg, a candidate who is well-funded by billionaire campaign donors, hit Bloomberg for his blatant attempt to buy the Democratic nomination. The somewhat more rancorous tone of the debate made previous walk-in-the-park debates appear to be a snoozefest.
Considering he at least implicitly is the frontrunner for the nomination, it’s probably safe to say Bernie Sanders exited the debate as the de facto winner. Sanders holds a resounding lead in polling for the upcoming Nevada caucuses, and a win coupled with a blow to Bloomberg’s campaign could give him the momentum required for a dominant Super Tuesday performance.
