The anarchist group Antifa has announced they’re taking advantage of the Columbus weekend holiday to protest the historical figure around his monuments on Monday.
Already in New York five statues were vandalized in recent weeks; spray painting ‘hate will not be tolerated’ and ‘#SomethingsComing,’ reports Far Left Watch.
The Federalist Papers said: NYC’s Antifa group, Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement, has called for nationwide coordinated national efforts. The group urges Antifa thugs to “Deface Columbus Day.”
The group even posted a video which it hopes will incite violence. The video features synth music and tough-guys who hide their faces walking around spray painting walls. The so-called “abolition” movement seems to think walking around throwing shadow punches at nothing is going to change society. The video contains strong language and rather annoying synth music.

Their warning has certainly been helpful for authorities to prepare for the worst. City officials are doing what they can to keep any violent acts at a minimum.
PJ Media reports:
What is coming appears to be a coordinated campaign to destroy monuments all across the country on Columbus Day.
The NYC-based antifa group Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM) made the announcement on Thursday, September 21, calling on antifa groups nationwide to “decorate” their neighborhoods.
According to Far Left Watch, RAM is “an extremely militant group that advocates for the violent redistribution of property” and for “the abolition of gender.”
RAM is responsible for conducting workshops, in NYC, showing protesters how to be violent against police. These workshops have been titled “Introduction To Anarchism” and “Our Enemies in Blue.”
Interesting thing about this all is that most Americans like celebrating Columbus day, with a small minority of 29% opposing the holiday.
If you have the opportunity, avoid these areas like the plague. Better to give Antifa no fuel for their fire, and let authorities arrest these thugs for destroying public property.
