Texas Warns Protestors The Alamo Will Be Defended
The Land Commissioner for the State of Texas George P. Bush gave a warning to protestors who are planning on vandalizing The Alamo in the midst of other historical landmarks being vandalized all over the United States. Bush stated that his office is in the process of monitoring rumors and even social media posts about planned attacks on The Alamo. He assured that law enforcement officers will be standing guard and ready to protect the monument should protestors decide to go there and vandalize it like what had happened to other historical landmarks.
He posted on Twitter that “the Alamo is the Shrine of Texas Liberty. And it will be defended. My office is closely watching the social media posts and rumors from protesters who are threatening to come to The Alamo.”
Bush assured the public that they have deployed for several weeks now and that the police in San Antonio, The Department of Public Safety, and The National Guard are standing ready to guard the shrine.
The warning comes in the midst of vandals all over the country rampaging and defacing various monuments all over the United States. The targeted monuments are mostly those honoring leaders of the Confederacy like Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis. But monuments to Christoper Columbus have also been targeted and vandalized.
The protestors are moving to target all the things that do not agree with their world view. They are aiming to erase all records and to change history. They are doing the same thing that the Cultural Revolution in China did decades ago, which was to try and erase a significant part of history because it did not agree with their views.
Many of the protestors are so ignorant that they would vandalize even monuments for those who have fought racism. Antifa rioters, for example, defaced the Robert Gould Shaw and the 54th Regiment Memorial in Boston. The 54th Massachusetts Regiment was one of the most celebrated units in the Civil War. It was made up of African American soldiers whose heroism allowed the entry of more African Americans in the military. Shaw was the commander of the regiment who was killed in action and was a staunch abolitionist.
