Brooklyn, New York City—There is growing outrage in Brooklyn and in Newark after two statues to honor George Floyd were targeted by vandals. The George Floyd statue that was unveiled on Juneteenth at 1545 Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn was discovered vandalized around 7:20 a.m. Thursday.(Snip) "I'm not gonna get emotional but to come up today, someone in the name of hate, came through the night and defaced it. In the night, when we couldn't see their face. They snuck in. It's really, really devastating," said statue producer Lindsay Eshelman. "They seem to be very aligned with the things that happened at the Capitol.


Since when is it a crime to deface a statue, especially with tensions running high in The White Community?

Yet the producers of this garbage don't see any problem honoring a career criminal. Truly pathetic. Speaking of Floyd's value to society, does anyone really think that the Floyd family would give up the $27 million to have him back? Not a chance.

How many statues of real American heroes were torn down this past summer? And why was Floyd memorialized? Was it for the incident where he held a gun to a pregnant woman's belly while his cohorts ransacked her place for which he received jail time?

George Floyd was murdered. He was murdered by his drug dealer. Why hasn't his drug dealer been arrested and charged with murder? Here in Ohio, a drug dealer can prosecuted if one of his "customers" dies after consuming a drug dealer's "product."

They are ugly statues that do nothing to enhance their neighborhoods. BLM and Antifa have already proven that if you don't like a statue, you can deface it, destroy it, or whine enough so that guilt-ridden white liberals will have it removed from the public square. No matter how he died, Floyd was still a good-for-nothing dirtbag. Not the person you want to honor with statues. While they're at it, I wish someone would cover up that stupid black lives matter paint job in Washington, DC.

Disappearances rise on Mexico's
'highway of death' to border

Mexico City—As many as 50 people are missing after setting out on three-hour car trips this year between Mexico‘s industrial hub of Monterrey and the border city of Nuevo Laredo on a well-traveled stretch of road local media have dubbed “the highway of death.” Relatives say family members simply vanished. The disappearances, and last week’s shooting of 15 apparently innocent bystanders in Reynosa, suggest Mexico is returning to the dark days of the 2006-2012 drug war when cartel gunmen often targeted the general public as well as one another. “It’s no longer between the cartels; they are attacking the public,” said activist Angelica Orozco.

Barry approached a 53-year-old woman waiting on a line to buy a MetroCard and told her he worked for the MTA and could help her out, said police.

As the Marxist revolution oozes forward, I occasionally wonder what will happen to the useful idiots when the commies seize absolute power in this once great Republic. I believe that most AT readers are familiar with the term, but for those who need a brief refresher, a useful idiot, as defined by Wikipedia, "is a derogatory term for a person perceived as propagandizing for a cause without fully comprehending the cause's goals, and who is cynically used by the cause's leaders." In my opinion, this definition can be applied to a majority of the young, brainwashed radicals who have no idea about the true history of Marxism
