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.’”
