IMO, a lot of this nonsense, such as spray painting anarchist symbols on private and public property, trying to burn down police stations, vandalizing new homes in gentrifying neighborhoods, removing statues and stomping through the streets screeching about imagined injustices is a direct result of Donald Trump's victory in November and the ones acting out think this some how equates to 'resisting.'
They need to grow up and try again in 2020.


Note: FWIW, there's apparently some people who think Rizzo dropped the bomb on Osage Ave (MOVE). A few years back, when 'activists' were 'hot' for his statue, I corrected an older, seemingly intelligent, black woman about this, telling her it was Wilson Goode, and she didn't want to hear it. I can only imagine what the younger generation is being told.

There was a MOVE incident on Rizzo's watch. That's when the cop was shot, which was why the cops wanted to bomb MOVE to kingdom come on Goode's watch.

Wilson Good was mayor when Move II happened. Frank Rizzo was mayor when Move I happened.

And here it goes. More mud-slinging, arguing, bickering, and nastiness...

I see it's still difficult for some to accept the FACT that Wilson Goode was the mayor who OK'd a bomb to be dropped on MOVE.

That woman was probably confusing it with the mess in Powelton Village in 1978.

We all know Rizzo was a very polarizing figure. I have mixed emotions about him. The statue should just be left alone. In time (has not been enough apparently) , it will be forgotten about, few will remember him and people who do remember him now will all be dead.

Both sides disgust me in this whole right/ left mess. I don't even like watching the news or checking social media anymore because its so disappointing to see so much hate on BOTH sides. I do not support anything I see, but Trump did have a point when he said there was a lot of hate on both sides of the arguement. (In case anyone gets mad, no I am not a Trump supporter).

Ding ding ding. You're the winner! What you get is to be ignored by everyone as people continue to bicker. So much division...
