If I haven't already made it clear I hate Andrew Jackson and want his statue out of DC and his face off the 20 but we can't have violent mobs deciding what is right and wrong and these four are going to be made an example of.

How bad a spot are they in you ask? Not even the ACLU will defend them.

John Boehner, the epitome of sold out, uncaring, unpatriotic, politics of money.
No surprise, he is a lobbyist today. Despicable human being he has always been and continues today.

Cry all you want what I said will come to pass.

FYI Trump loves Bloody Andrew Jackson.

Vandalism is rarely good policy.

Andrew Jackson famously defied the courts and got away with it and that is why he is Trump's hero.

Somehow, Jackson's defiance of the courts just might play into a defense for these guys.

Andrew Jackson is the founder of the Democrat Party. The worst he did was the Trail of Tears, the forced removal of Native people from their land and marched to Oklahoma. What most miss is these "Indians", like the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek,and Seminole were not living in teepees, they were living in houses, working farms and plantations, some even owned slaves. The removal did not spring out of thin air, it was a land grab. The purpose was to expand slavery, which it did. The areas seized became the most profitable and productive areas in the south. Cotton became king afterwards.

Scrub all of it then and lets just leave it up as a monument as the only President in US history to pay off the national debt. It's worth remembering.

Andrew Jackson statue should not be in Washington DC but it is not the right or responsibility of a violent mob to remove the statue.

As for what to do with the Statue part of me thinks it should be shipped to The Hermitage.

Stop calling them vandals. They're doing the right thing. Those statues must come down.

#12 | Posted by DarkVader Do stupid things, get stupid prizes. Iconoclasts generally have a reason for destroying artwork. These cretins have no discrimination or cause, they just want to destroy. Images of Lincoln, Grant and many others have been torn down. As Orwell stated, to control the future, first control the past.

At the corner of the Ellipse there is a statue of Baron Von Steuben. I guess we can tear it down too, as he was a homosexual and a foreigner. Perhaps someone will blow up the MLK memorial. --- for tat. Tolerance is a two way street.

#15 | Posted by snoofy I know your level of ignorance is considerable, but realize everyone in the 18th century practiced slavery. EVERYONE. Your condemnation of those centuries passed just shows your own limited perspective. Slavery was acceptable and rationalized for the entirety of history. We are the aberration.

"but realize everyone in the 18th century practiced slavery."

Pretty sure the slaves didn't practice slavery...
Also, plenty of poor freemen couldn't afford a slave.
Maybe what you meant to say is everyone in the 18th century tolerated slavery?

What you're saying is like saying "sexual assault and drunk driving are still widely practiced in the year 2020."

#19 | Posted by snoofy The future can turn in ways you can not imagine. Don't believe it could not happen.
#18 | Posted by snoofy It was acceptable, even cute to drive drunk when I was a kid, MADD changed that. Sexual assault has always been taken very seriously, long before women's lib and obnoxious feminists, the penalty for rape was death.

Bars are closing on July 1.
That means tonight and tomorrow are going to be a ---- show!

Do you have a bar? I was at BLVD last night.

The last time I was in SD County, I was in Encinitas and all the bars were closed. That was about a month ago.

Tell it to Sally Hemings.
Oh, right, it's not rape if you own it.

#28 | Posted by snoofy Seems that a mixed race woman,(1/4 black) could have said no. She could have stayed in France. But she stayed with him for 40+ years and had four kids by him. I guess that doesn't fit your narrative of rape.

Leave the founders out of this topic is Andrew Jackson and his statue being violated.
