I was wondering how long it would take for this kind of thing to happen:

A statue of Martin Luther King Jr. was vandalized with SS bolts and a swastika in Long Beach over the weekend. It is the second time in two years the statue, erected in 1986, has been targeted, after a plaque bearing one of his quotations was stolen in 2019.

What’s interesting is that it happened in oh-so liberal California (although it should be noted that Long Beach does not share the same socio-political profile as, say, San Francisco or West Hollywood).

Here’s the pic:

To all those assholes who think it’s okay to desecrate monuments to past heroes like Thomas Jefferson and George Washington while revering those like Martin Luther King, let me just say this:  you started it.

I’m not excusing this kind of thing;  but I do understand the rationale.


  1. In the past, lots of these incidents were found to have been hoaxes perpetrated by liberals or minorities themselves in order to gin up outrage and support for their causes.

    1. This is NOT retaliation, it’s kinda-sorta goosey-gander, but it’s definitely EQUITY.

  2. Ah, totally agree with your post, my friend. They are the ones who indeed started this whole distasteful mess. Reap what you sow, you motherf_ckers……..

    1. I wouldn’t take that bet, not even at 5:1 odds.

      AFAIK, the ones that vandalized the statue of a black abolitionist (Lloyd Garrison?) in Boston last year were Antifards and BLMers.

  3. I understand the frustration, but it would be more appropriately directed at statues of St. George of Felonia. MLK, while flawed, was a decent guy.

    And the nazis are not worth carrying on symbols.

    1. The decency of the person is not the issue. Washington, Jefferson and MLK were all decent men — it’s what their desecration means that’s important.

    2. A decent guy? Seriously? He was a bigger charlatan than Sharpton and Jackson combined. He was a plagiarist, a serial adulterer, and an abuser of women. All documented.

      1. He was also the last national Civil Rights leader for Blacks who wasn’t a Quisling. Naturally the Progressive Left dropped his tactics in favor of violent gangsters like the Black Panthers.

  4. Blacks are all for segregation and judging people by the colour of their skin rather than the character of their mind, as long as they’re doing the segregating and judging.

    So MLK has to go, he’s now anathema to what the modern black civil rights movement stands for.

    1. I don’t think Blacks are in favor of that as a group. Certainly the Black Quislings and their followers are. Thank the White Progressive Left.


  5. Well, Hells.

    I have no idea why anyone would assume that because of my severe Melanin deficiency I wouldn’t value the lessons of Dr. King, as well as those of Jefferson, Washington, Adams, Lee, Grant, Lincoln, Douglas, Tubman, Reagan, Williams, Sowell, etc., etc., etc. This desecration offends me, made worse that it was so close to my (thankfully) former home near the drain of the LA Basin.

  6. Another aspect of this is that four (plus) years of calling Trump a Nazi (after decades of slightly lower key calling mildly conservative politicians Nazis)has normalized Nazis.

  7. I wonder how the Left will react if and when the decades old Leftist one-way arrow of hate crime, protest, affirmative action, looting, rioting, street crime, defund the police, etc. turns around on them.
    It reminds me of the great scene from A Man For all Seasons” when son-in-law Roper argues with Thomas More that some are above the law for certain altruistic reasons:
    A Man for All Seasons (1960)
    Roper: So now you’d give the Devil benefit of law?
    More: Yes. What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?
    Roper: I’d cut down every law in England to do that!
    More: Oh? And, when the last law was down, and the Devil turned round on you – where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country’s planted thick with laws from coast to coast – man’s laws, not God’s – and, if you cut them down – and you’re just the man to do it – d’you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I’d give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety’s sake.

    There is much to be said for law applied equally and blindly, if we’re to have a civil society.

  8. These sorts of things never used to happen when Long Beach was best known for its Iowa Day Picnic.

  9. I’m not a fan of destroying private or public property, but hard to get upset when the statue of a communist sympathizer gets torn down.

  10. That hooked cross is way to sloppy for a Nazi, the ZZ stuff is a total mess, not real stuff for sure.

    1. Seriously. Poor execution and lack of imagination make me think it was a black that did this. Wouldn’t be the first time.

      I myself would spend another few seconds to paint the face black, the lips red, and hang a lantern on his raised hand.

      If you’re gonna do something, do it right.

  11. No place is as liberal as San Fran or West Hollywood, Kim, and that includes the rest of California outside the big cities. If you don’t believe me, ask the fine State of Jefferson folks.
