Writes Adam di Angeli:
I’d always attributed the Left’s violence against historical monuments to rabid rage.
Sure, they claim to hate whoever it is they tear down.
But that’s nonsense, of course, as proven by the destruction of the statues of those they supposedly revere: Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Matthias Baldwin, etc.
Clearly, these people are piranhas. Sure, they love to attack an enemy, but they’ll settle for whatever is in front of them (even an innocent elk).
This understanding served, until I just now realized there’s something else to it as well:
They target statues because they are statues. They are inanimate: they cannot fight back.
They target statues because they are utter cowards.
