Trump Gives The Go Ahead For Feds To Arrest People For Vandalizing Statues On Federal Property
President Trump made an announcement Tuesday morning that destructive left-wingers who love to vandalize statues as an act of “protest” are going to throw an absolute fit about.
The president has authorized federal officials to arrest anyone who vandalizes one of these statues on federal property. If you listen closely, you can hear the soy latte crowd right this very moment crying themselves to sleep at the audacity of the federal government trying to stop them from spreading anarchy and damaging property that doesn’t belong to them.
Here’s more on this announcement from The Daily Wire:
The announcement from the president comes after rioters have destroyed numerous statues of former presidents in recent days, including statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Ulysses S. Grant.
“I have authorized the Federal Government to arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such Federal property in the U.S. with up to 10 years in prison, per the Veteran’s Memorial Preservation Act, or such other laws that may be pertinent,” Trump tweeted. “This action is taken effective immediately, but may also be used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused. There will be no exceptions!”
Trump went on later to address those extremists who have taken over a six-block section of downtown Seattle, letting others who might be thinking of trying the same shenanigans in D.C. to think again:
Look, there are plenty of other, more productive ways of making a political point than destroying statues and being violent and nasty toward anyone who sees the issue of race relations in a different way than you do.
We don’t have to be destructive. Believe it or not, that actually creates more of the problem that these folks claim to be trying to get rid of. If we really want to be a free and equal society, we need to stop dividing and start finding common ground. Stop obsessing over skin color. Talk to each other like normal human beings.
It’s a simple solution.
