It was feature in the Augusta Chronicle. Probably the work of some douches trying to be "ironic".

[size=4]Downtown Confederate monument defaced with anti-white messages[/size]

Staff Reports - Augusta Chronicle
Sunday, Nov. 8, 2009 9:22 p.m.
Updated: Sunday, November 8, 2009 10:02 p.m.

The large Confederate monument on Broad Street in downtown Augusta has been defaced tonight by someone who spray painted anti-white messages.

The Richmond County Sheriff's Office has responded, and witnesses at the scene in the 700 block of Broad told a Chronicle reporter they noticed someone spray painting the landmark at about 8:30 p.m.

Messages were marked in black and include the words black power, I hate whites and cracker killers as well as an obscenity against whites in large letters.

Instead of cleaning the graff up, they should just remove the whole monument...

Why? You have to preserve and remember your forefathers whether you agreed with their actions or not. As soon as people forget about the past, then those same mistakes will inevitably be made again.

Little muriatic acid and that'll come right off. In the meantime, maybe an iron gate around the perimeter would help?

the book "1984" is all about the result of progressives and social engineering. One of the more famous quotes is..

"Who controls the present controls the past. Who controls the past controls the future".

The act of removing/banning/outlawing our history is explained in that quote. Progressives won't stop until they erode all of our freedoms. Anything confederate is presently protected by the 1A. Why we let white progressives get away with it is anybody's guess.

As long as there are schools and museums, history won't be "banned" or "outlawed." I have no clue why people want to restrict "history" to monuments and symbols on public property.

And what does this have to do with "our freedoms"? You're still free to erect monuments and such on your own property; no one is fighting that.
