Protesters in North Carolina posted a video Monday of their tearing down a Confederate memorial, calling it a response to the weekend violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The clip shows a group of at least several dozen in Durham pulling down a statue in front of the local government building.

They can be heard yelling “No KKK! No fascist USA! No Trump!” until cheers break out as the statue atop the memorial gets pulled down.

Several protesters can be seen kicking the statue. There is no indication in the video that any police officers or other officials are trying to stop the public vandalism.

    As long as we are removing all references to anything that offends one group, can we remove the name “Malcolm X” form every school and road that bears the name? His brand of hatred for the White Race and the Jewish religion is well documented and he fostered hate and violence in the country. If we MUST remove all vestiges of the Confederacy, would this not also be appropriate?

    The civil war was approximately 150 years ago, and these statues have been around for about 50-60years. What is the big deal now. There were plenty of black people who fought under the Connfederâte flag. As far as slavery is concerned, it is probably is hard for many black people to trace their ancestry all the way back to slaves. Millions of black people came to this country after the war, and are not related to any slaves.

    Why aren’t the cops stopping these smelly pigs from destroying public property. These pigs are nothing more than the scum of the planet, especially the white ones..

    They don’t like looking at statues, but every morning when I turn on my computer, the get the news, it seems there’s always a picture of either Barry Omuslim, or scumbag Killary! Throwing up every morning is getting old!

    The answer is simple; take down the statues and put them in museums. They’re items of historical interest. If you don’t want to look at them, go away. If you vandalize them, you go to jail like any other common criminal.

    This is the same thing that is being done in the Middle East by ISIS. Destroying history that isn’t in favor of them. This has to be stopped at all cost.
