Protesters Desecrate Peace Monument After Mistaking It for Confederate


Atlanta's peace monument was attacked and desecrated Sunday night by a mob of alt-left protesters fighting racism and the events that unfolded in Charlottesville over the weekend.

Protesters took to the streets in Atlanta and elsewhere Sunday night, outraged over the violence in Charlottesville, where a “Unite the Right” rally clashed with counter protesters

The protesters encountered the scariest historical reminder at odds with the Democratic party today. A statue from 1910 honoring peace, reconciliation, and a commitment to the brotherhood of humanity. How terrifying right? And that is not facetious. To the new world order, nothing is more problematic for obstructing their path to global dominance than unity over the one common denominator shared by all, that is to be free.

The Atlanta march traveled from Woodruff Park to Piedmont Park Sunday, where some damaged the Peace Monument, a sculpture that features an angel standing above a Confederate soldier, guiding him to lay down his weapon.

“I completely understand what happened,” said Thornton Kennedy, a sixth generation Atlantan who has taken his children to visit it many times to explain Atlanta’s history. “It’s a statue that, to the observer, looks like a Confederate memorial.”

First of all, Kudos Mr. Kennedy for actually being a parent to your children and teaching your children about history instead of handing over your young to be sacrificed to the new world order via the liberal agenda. Again as stressed in the opening of this article, I am not being metaphorical or facetious today. That is the truth. And there is a reason so many people today have inadvertently allowed their minds, and the minds of their children to be broken into willing vessels of political correctness. That is number one. For lack of a better analogy, political correctness has become the new religion, and the Democratic party their savior.

Here is the true history behind the latest monument destroyed,

When the Civil War broke out, members of an Atlanta militia called the Gate City Guard were among the first to take up arms against the North. Afterward, some survivors became part of what would eventually become the Georgia National Guard. Others, who felt they were too old to fight any longer, took up the cause for reconciliation.

“These guys realized a national healing needed to take place,” said Kennedy, a history buff who keeps the three-volume set “The Chronicles of the Old Guard” on his bookshelf. “They organized a peace tour of the North, which is really remarkable. These were guys who fought in the Civil War, against Union troops. They would go meet with Union soldiers and began to repair those fissures the war created. It speaks to what we call the Atlanta spirit.”

No one, of course, suggests that 1911 Atlanta was the progressive bastion of equality, diversity and inclusion that modern-day Atlanta enjoys. Jim Crow was the law of the land back then. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was decades away. Women were still nine years from having the right to vote.

Judged by the mores of their era, however, the Gate City Guard members who sought to heal the rift between North and South would likely have been considered relatively enlightened for their time. The Peace Monument erected that year was something of harbinger of Atlanta’s reputation during the 1960s Civil Rights era as the “City Too Busy to Hate.”

What happened in Atlanta on Sunday perfectly illustrates the mind numbingly heartbreaking objective of the democratic party, the liberal agenda, and the globalist seeking to bring about a new world order.

A historical monument honoring peace and enlightenment was damaged, while the young activist attacking their own futures were being physically injured and weakened.

A protester was hurt by metal falling from the edifice as the group tried to tear it down, AJC photographer John Spink reported Sunday night. Tensions rose as the lone policeman on the scene was surrounded by black-clad Antifa protesters shouting “pig.” Black Lives Matter protesters put themselves between the police officer and the Antifa crowd, and the gathering soon dispersed.
