We’re talking about another day, another cause célèbre for social justice warriors. The SJWs must really believe in idle hands being the devil’s playground — at least, they would if they believed in the devil.
Never mind. The SJWs are hard up for promoting causes that truly annoy us so they simply recycled arguments they used to smash Confederate monuments and are now using them to smash those who offended Native Americans.
Believe me, it’s a very long list.
Presidents, generals, icons like Daniel Boone, and the occasional bald settler who annoyed tribesmen by denying them a suitable trophy scalp to pin to their lodgepole.
I don’t think there are any monuments to that last entry, but for the rest, it’s a target-rich environment.
No other city has taken down a monument to a president for his misdeeds. But Arcata is poised to do just that. The target is an 8½-foot bronze likeness of William McKinley, who was president at the turn of the last century and stands accused of directing the slaughter of Native peoples in the U.S. and abroad.
“Put a rope around its neck and pull it down,” Chris Peters shouted at a recent rally held at the statue, which has adorned the central square for more than a century.
