WWII Monument in North Carolina Vandalized with Praise for Communism

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “A World War II monument in Charlotte, North Carolina, was targeted by vandals who spray-painted a hammer and sickle over the names of soldiers who died while fighting overseas,” Maddison Dibble writes in the Washington Examiner.
 
“Wayne White, a U.S. Air Force veteran, gathered a group of volunteers and began scrubbing the monument clean on Monday morning. He told Fox 46 that he was upset by the vandalism because it covered up the 507 names of people from Mecklenburg County who were ‘veterans and deserve the honor, respect, and dignity.’”

“Our national parks are in dire need of repairs. After decades of administrations and Congress paying lip service while kicking the can down the road, President Trump took bold action and provided unprecedented support for Congress to fix the aging [park] infrastructure,” Interior Secretary David Bernhardt writes in The Hill.

“As anti-police protests continue amid seething politics in the aftermath of police killings in Minneapolis and Atlanta, as violence in many urban areas continues to spike, almost everyone is having their say.
