Trump signs executive order to protect American monuments, memorials and statues

Fox News

Morgan Phillips

June 26, 2020

President Trump announced Friday that he signed an executive order to protect American monuments, memorials and statues and threatened those who try to pull them down with “long prison time.”

“I just had the privilege of signing a very strong Executive Order protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues - and combatting recent Criminal Violence,” Trump tweeted. “Long prison terms for these lawless acts against our Great Country!”

The new order enforces laws prohibiting the desecration of public monuments, the vandalism of government property, and recent acts of violence, withholds federal support tied to public spaces from state and local governments that have failed to protect public monuments, and withdraws federal grants for jurisdictions and law enforcement agencies that fail to stop their desecration.

It also provides assistance for protecting the federal statues.

Meanwhile on Friday evening, Attorney General Bill Barr directed the creation of a task force to counter anti-government extremists, specifically naming those who support the far-right “boogaloo” movement and those who identify as Antifa.

The task force will be headed by Craig Carpenito, the U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey, and Erin Nealy Cox, U.S. Attorney for the district of Northern Texas, and will be composed of U.S. Attorneys’ Offices, the FBI and other relevant departments, according to a press release. The group will share information with local and state law enforcement and will provide training on identifying anti-government extremists, according to an internal Justice Department memo.

The president has been teasing his order related to memorials all week, as historic monuments and statues have become the targets of anger and vandalism during Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of George Floyd's police custody death in Minneapolis at the end of May.

I believe that those who desecrate and damage these monuments ought to be shot when caught in the act, just like all those who tag public places and private property with spray paint.

JMO.

 

If this were the policy then it would very likely cease to occur.

I suggest connecting the brass (read: metal) monuments to an electrical source, so whenever the circus clowns touch/grab they get the shock of their lives.  :)

Well done (AGAIN) Mr President. You make me so proud of my 2016 vote. I was reluctant back then, I'll be enthusiastic this time around.

:woohoo:

It's more than just grounds for a celebration after he wins again.

This is war. We cannot ever relent or become complacent ever again.
