A Black Lives Matter mural outside Vermont’s statehouse was vandalized just hours after being painted, police said. The mural, painted Saturday in Montpelier by more than a hundred volunteers, was smeared early Sunday with several gallons of dirt and oil, leaving one of its 25-foot, yellow letters on State Street defaced, Montpelier police said. A “considerable amount” of graffiti was also found on a sidewalk nearby but referenced “government spending” and did not appear to be connected to the mural, Police Chief Anthony Facos told The Post on Monday. “$400 million gone,” one spray-painted sidewalk message read.

Comments:

Some graffiti is more equal than others as the Marxists push for a race war. Old monuments to people guilty of being white? Tear them down! Giant street "tagging" visible from outer space and bearing a message of BLACK supremacy? A lovely mural designed to being us all together.

I wish they had a hero from some era, any era, that we could destroy. Sadly, they don't have any people of accomplishment except maybe a few basketball players and all they can do is dribble.

I hope that whoever approved and painted the BLM "mural", including the entire Montpelier City Council, are also under arrest.

BLM is an anarchist revolutionary arm of HAMA and the Muslim Brotherhood. Now I just can't imagine why anyone would want to vandalize this work of modern art. It's ok to riot burn and loot all over the country but don't you dare deface their graffiti.

Given this is Bernie's Vermont, the "vandal" could easily be an Antifa type looking to stir up trouble. Note also how curious it is that the exact same BLACK LIVES MATTER vandalism has been added by cities across the USA within a matter of days, using the same yellow road stripe paint and no doubt with city approval to alter street painting, which ordinarily would take months to receive. Almost as if all of this was planned well in advance, waiting only for an appropriate trigger event to present itself.

The thing that makes this incident drip with irony is that it is described as vandalism and the police are urgently searching for the perpetrator! Quiz - what does this say about equal justice?

That's how it works in an uncivil society where people's passions take precedence over the law. If you feel offended by someone else's work, just destroy it.

It’s not even a mural. Murals are painted on walls, not streets. Let’s call it what it is - ugly street graffiti.

Mayor Bill de Blasio is planning to install a massive Black Lives Matter mural right outside Trump Tower in Manhattan, The Post has learned. Plans for the mural—which will be painted in yellow block letters along Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th streets—come as the city grapples with troubling surges in gun violence and illegal firework activity. “Obviously he is doing it to antagonize the president,” a source said. “This is what he is concerned about while the city burns.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called the attacks on monuments “healthy expression” and “good statements.” In an appearance Tuesday on NBC, he denied President Trump’s admonition that, in the words of interviewer Savannah Guthrie, “cities should do more to protect monuments.” Instead, Mr. Cuomo characterized the attacks—which have targeted monuments to Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt and World War II veterans among others—as anti-racist statements. “People are making a statement about equality, about community, to be against racism, against slavery, I think those are good statements,” the Democratic governor said. While he acknowledged that “of course you can” overdo such statements,

Seattle police are investigating a third shooting in the Capitol Hill neighborhood near the city's 'autonomous zone,' a day after the mayor vowed to dismantle the encampment set up by anti-racism protesters. Police tweeted the shooting took place on the edge of the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP), or Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, where demonstrators set up a police-free zone in the wake of George Floyd's death in Minneapolis police custody. A man was taken to Harborview Medical Center at 5am on Tuesday after being shot near Cal Anderson Park and was in satisfactory condition, hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg said.

Lincoln County, Oregon, has exempted non-white people from a new order requiring that face coverings be worn in public—to prevent racial profiling. Health officials announced last week residents must wear face coverings in public settings where they may come within six feet of another individual who is not from the same household. But people of color do not have to follow the new rule if they have “heightened concerns about racial profiling and harassment” over wearing the masks, officials said.(Snip) With mask requirements becoming more common, activists have raised concerns that the directives could put non-white people in danger.

Seattle will move to end the police-free zone known as the "Capitol Hill Organized Protest," or "CHOP," after two recent shootings, one of which was deadly, Mayor Jenny Durkan announced Monday -- signaling that a stunning chapter in the city's history could be drawing to a close. The mayor said the violence was distracting from changes sought by thousands of peaceful protesters seeking to address racial inequity and police brutality. Activists set up "CHOP" in the city's Capitol Hill neighborhood about two weeks ago, barricading off the area after police evacuated a ransacked precinct building there.
