There is a narrative in the American press that claims the recent movement and civil discord over the removal of Civil War statues around the United States is the result of a few well meaning individuals seeking justice against what they perceive as symbols of racism.
As warm and fuzzy as this may make the American public feel it seems the truth behind much of the movement, in particular the removal of the historical statue in Baltimore, has a much more sinister motivation: to bring down capitalism.
According to Workers.org, the Workers World Party, a Marxist Communist organization who seeks to “disarm the Police and ICE agents” as well as “fight for a Socialist revolution“, organized the demonstration in Durham, North Carolina which led to the destruction of a historic city statue.

According to the article on the Workers World Party news website, at the beginning of the protest members of a local Black organization spoke to the crowd after which 22 year old Workers World Party member and college student, Takiyah Thompson, mounted the statue and placed a noose around its neck. Shortly thereafter the crowd pulled the statue from its base where it has stood since 1924.
The Workers World Party, who supports tyrannical, Communist dictatorships around the world including North Korea, Venezuela, and Cuba, labeled the vandalism in Durham as the first “rope” to bring down white supremacy and capitalism:
“Anti-racist fighters in Durham took matters into their own hands. The Confederate statue toppled down and crumpled into itself. This is the first rope of many to pull down the pillars holding up white supremacy and capitalism.”
Later that day Takiyah Thompson and several other members of the Workers World Party were arrested and charged with the destruction of the statue. At the writing of this article bail had yet to be set.
But it seems that the Workers World Party have been extremely busy little Communist bees as of late. From Charlottesville, Virginia to Ferguson, Missouri the Workers World Party has played a major role in helping to cast the long, red shadow of Progressive discord utilizing the tactics of violence and hate in an effort to make certain that peace does not reign in this nation. Especially under a Republican president.
Ever since the end of World War II the Communists have sought to destroy the United States because it is the only thing that stands in the way of Communist domination of the world. And even though the walls of the cold war have fallen after the defeat of the Soviet Union, there are still violent, Progressive groups, like the Communists and the National Socialists (Nazis), who seek our destruction and are willing to do anything to make it happen. Even if they have to rip down and destroy every single piece of American history, and American city, to do it.
