Law enforcement officers ejected a mob of left-wing rioters who were defacing a statue of Robert E. Lee in Richmond, Virginia. The police utilized tear gas and pepper spray to evict the disruptive crowd of rioters, some of whom have been agitating to destroy the historic statue.
Watch the intense footage here:
Left-wing cultural rioters have defaced the statue with political graffiti in recent days, filling the statue of the Confederate general with “All Cops Are B******” acronyms and other slogans.
Riotous demonstrators can be heard maintaining that the statue vandalism is a “peaceful protest,” wholly ignoring the systematic defacement and criminal damage inflicted upon the statue by leftist mobs.

Controversial Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, a state executive with a complicated racial history himself, is seeking to remove the historic statue, which was placed in Richmond in 1890. However, a legal challenge to keep the statue of the southern general has ensured its preservation, citing a commitment from the commonwealth of Virginia to affectionately maintain the statue when it was installed.
Litigation on the preservation of the statue will likely continue, ensuring that future operations on the part of leftists and organized ANTIFA thugs to destroy the icon of southern history will continue.
Jim Acosta Calls Conservative Media a “Disinformation-Industrial Complex” and “Potential Existential Threat”
Project much, Jim?
CNN’s Jim Acosta appeared on Brian Stelter’s Sunday morning show “Reliable Sources” to call conservative media a “potential existential threat” that could “cause more suffering.”
Referring to the on-screen graph that shows a significant drop in engagement with Trump-related articles, Stelter asked Acosta if he thought this “quiet period” was temporary. Acosta replied as follows:
“I think it is temporary. I do think what this country faces right now […] I describe it as the disinformation-industrial complex, and that is Trump and his people, conservative outlets like Fox News, and then conservative websites and organizations aligned with the president, and conservative platforms. These three pillars of this disinformation-industrial complex essentially helped put Trump in power, kept him in power, sustained his grip on the Republican Party, and it remains a threat to our democracy. It is the reason why there were hundreds of Trump supporters storming the Capitol on January 6. And until that poison, that toxin, is drained from the national political discourse in this country, Brian, I do think that these forces represent a potential existential threat to this country and have the potential to come back and cause more suffering in the days to come.”
Acosta does not seem to realize, however, that the popularity and influence of right-wing outlets like Big League Politics are direct consequences of “journalists” like him and networks like CNN. They’re the original traffickers in disinformation and in fanning the flames of fearmongering. Alternative conservative media would not have taken off if the mainstream media weren’t so unbearably leftist.
