Mob rule is taking over with the Left’s ambition to remove Confederate statues and some monuments, with nothing to do with confederacy, are being targeted in this wake of chaos.
Enter the statue of Junipero Serra who stands alongside a Native American boy in a park across from Mission San Fernando. It was vandalized ‘with red paint and the word “murder” written in white. The Native American boy had a swastika painted across his chest,’ CBS Local reported.
Since the photo made the rounds on social media first, city officials were unsure of the authenticity. Once investigators showed up to the site, however, it was very obvious what was being reported was real. Apparently the neighboring Catholic mission tried cleaning the statue the best they could; trying to avoid controversy.
According to the Daily Wire: That would make perfect sense, considering that whenever the Left gets their hands on controversy like this, they always show up to get their inner Bolshevik on.
Some of the people interviewed by CBS expressed disapproval of the statue’s presence, falsely claiming that St. Junipero Serra sought the destruction of Native American culture.

“I think the statue should come down from this park, and then put some appreciation to the Native people that live here,” Cristian Ramirez said. “We don’t want this violent history to be praised in our community.”
Ever since Pope Francis canonized Father Junipero Serra for Sainthood in 2015, the Left and SJW snowflakes claim he had a violent history toward Native Americans. The LA Times said that “glossing over Junipero Serra’s inhumanity was insult to Native Americans.”
Archaeology professor Reuben Mendoza of Cal State Monterrey Bay debunked this garbage during the controversy.
“When he died, many native peoples came to the mission for his burial. They openly wept. Others of his colleagues and even colonists believed that he would be made a saint because of the way he had lived his life, a self-effacing life of a martyr,” said Mendoza.
“Because of what he had achieved in his life, even then they had talked about his impending canonization.”
This isn’t the only statue that has ben wrongly targeted. Abraham Lincoln’s statue has been burned. Things are getting out of control here.
Leave our nation’s monuments alone. Agree with them or not, they are history and a great reminder of what to preserve and what to abandon. Forgetting our history will make us revert back to previous mistakes. Let’s not do that.
