More disinformation — tRump E.O. 13933 “Protecting Monuments…”

Carol Overland - Legalectric - Wed, 07/01/2020 - 12:08pm

Really, you’ve got to read this, up for Public Inspection, to be published tomorrow. This is baldfaced disinformation about just who was traveling, just who was violent, and reveals just who knows nothing about history — this is shameful:

2020-14509_Protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues and Combating Recent Criminal ViolenceDownload

A snippet of the introduction — OMFD:

Many of the rioters, arsonists, and left-wing extremists who have carried out and supported these acts have explicitly identified themselves with ideologies — such as Marxism — that call for the destruction of the United States system of government.

Anarchists and left-wing extremists have sought to advance a fringe ideology that paints the United States of America as fundamentally unjust and have sought to impose that ideology on Americans through violence and mob intimidation. They have led riots in the streets, burned police vehicles, killed and assaulted government officers as well as business owners defending their property, and even seized an area within one city where law and order gave way to anarchy. During the unrest, innocent citizens also have been harmed and killed.

These criminal acts are frequently planned and supported by agitators who have traveled across State lines to promote their own violent agenda. These radicals shamelessly attack the legitimacy of our institutions and the very rule of law itself.

Jawdroppingly clueless, spewing false information in this “Executive Order.” Idiot, a treasonous pawn.

There’s fomenting happening right now about BLM’s wanting to remove a statue of Lincoln. Here’s the statute at issue:
