When 'Protest' Turns to Desecration

The satanic Left, which never takes an inch when it can grab a mile, continues its relentless war on American history:

Officials at Andrew Jackson’s historic home in Tennessee say the seventh president’s tomb has been vandalized and marred by profanities. Andrew Jackson Foundation President and CEO Howard Kittell said the vandalism was discovered early Friday at The Hermitage, the former president’s home and museum in Nashville.

Kittell said someone marred the stone covers of the graves of Jackson and his wife, Rachel, with black and red paint. He said the word “killer” was written, along with profanities, and anarchist symbols were drawn at the site. Kittell said a police report has been filed.

And if you want to know the kind of “journalism” that tacitly encourages them in their violent deconstruction of the country, it’s paragraphs like this one:

Jackson served as president from 1829-1837 and was a controversial figure. He was beloved as a man of the people but also oversaw the forced removal of Native Americans from the southeastern U.S.

Ex post facto judgment on a dead man’s actions is characteristic of the Left, which posits new sins every day, then exhumes great figures in history in order to hang them in the public square. No matter what your opinion of Jackson he was an important president (and used to be considered the father of the modern Democratic Party). So I guess it’s only a matter of time now before we start reading of, say, FDR, that “he served as president from 1933-1945, led the U.S. to victory in World War II but also oversaw the forced removal of Japanese-Americans to internment camps on the West Coast.”

And that’s how the Left corrupts our history. They never stop, they never sleep, they never quit. And they won’t stop until they are stopped.
