Antifa Riot In Durham – Destroy Monument

Durham, NC – An Antifa march in Durham turned to rioting Monday night as the crowd pulled down and destroyed a civil war monument (video below.)

The Antifa group, carrying signs that say “Cops & Clan Go Hand In Hand” moved on the confederate soldier statue outside of the courthouse and pulled it down.

The metal statue, which has stood since 1924, folded over when it hit the ground. People in the group then took turns punching and kicking the metal statue which didn’t end well for them because metal is harder than body parts.

ABC 11 reports that after toppling the statue, the group has started moving to march on the Durham Police headquarters.

Law enforcement does not appear to have a heavy presence and the officers appear to be trailing behind as Antifa blocks roadways.

Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization which has a history of vandalism and assaults, which include throwing explosives, bricks, and glass bottles full of nails at police.

Antifa consists of people who largely believe in committing acts of violence against “Nazis.” This is something that most people would generally be willing to look the other way on, except their definition of “Nazi” or fascism is fairly loose.

Anybody who is simply perceived to be a supporter of President Donald Trump is labeled as a Nazi or fascist, and subject to being attacked unprovoked.

Antifa has been involved in rioting in multiple cities across America during the past few months. During these riots, they have beaten people simply perceived to be Trump supporters, along with throwing rocks, bricks, glass bottles, and explosives at them.

    And the police just stand around watching.

    • Peekin-In

      and just what would you do? They’re outnumbered and if they did step in, it’s police brutality. You know nothing. Hey…..sign up to be a cop. You MIGHT make a difference.

      • OldNYFirefighter

        So you just let the radicals take over? You are going to love the Muslims.

        • Highest common denominator

          i don’t know how many Muslims were in that crowd, but I saw a whole bunch of white folk. Maybe police your own before you throw disparaging remarks at others.

      • Greg Miller

        I’d love to be a cop I got 2 brothers that are cops also a cousin, I can’t for 2 reason to old and disabled.

  • Greg Miller

    Wilful destruction on public property.

  • HoseasHand

    Wow! Disgusting pieces of human debris …

    • Gobby

      Yep low IQ Trump supporters one and all.

      • FoCoBiking

        Nope. You antifa people are shit. You’ve been shit since the beginning of time. You’re nothing new, and you always lose. I can’t wait till you’re lined up on the wall and shot, pig fucks.

        • Gobby

          I actually have no idea what antifa is, I am just a person who wont let our country surge to the right.

          • FoCoBiking

            No idea what antifa is? You’re it!

          • Gobby

            OK Antifa must be good then.

          • OldNYFirefighter

            If you don’t know what Antifa is you live a very sheltered life.

          • OldNYFirefighter

            Well the left screwed it up with Obama & Hillary would have been worse. Evidently you don’t see what the left has done to Europe.

          • junkmansj

            ANYIFA rages about Nazi’s , BUT THEY are the closest you can get to HITLERS BROWN SHIRTS. Their answer to everything is Riot and Violence

      • roy

        your stupid comment makes me so happy Hill lost

      • junkmansj

        is that Gobby or Gobble, get Hillarys nuts out of your mouth and engage your BRAIN!

  • Terry

    This is getting ridiculous. Police are supposed to protect life and property.

    • Gobby

      What exactly do you want the Police to do? do you want them to kill people because they have damaged property?

      • Kathy Snow

        Arrest them, stop them. I don’t want those idiots in my neighborhood. This is total BS. What country is this again?

        • Spear

          Oh. I guess you’re asking for martial law to be put in place. Because, it’s that type of force that would have any hope of success in repressing these facist/terrorist, Leftist. So you want Martial Law? And this will happen. It’s all a complete design to place this country in the turmoil of anarchy. And with the MSM’s helping the narrative of hate against Trump to cause his Presidency to emplode. And then who comes to help? Who?, I ask?

          • Janet G

            NO ONE And that is SAD!

      • UserName

        Uh, no, they need to protect property & arrest people/give them citations – whatever the “norm” in their city is. What if they did it on YOUR property, because they didn’t like something you have? Would you want police to ignore it because of mob rules?

        • Peekin-In

          Sad thing is they dont make them pay for the damage created, It’s a slap on the hand and out the door. There are NO consequences for what anyone does. Round them all up, put them in jail and make them pay. If not punished it continues on and on and on.

        • william

          I’m sure if these choir boys and girls next door were to show up in the neighborhood for a Saturday night pool party or Sunday Social they would be greeted with open arms by all. Then we would call Waste Management to send a truck over to pick up whatever the could find and put it in a sandwich bag to take with them.

      • FoCoBiking

        That’s not what Terry is saying, mouthbreather. Go empty your drool cup and develop critical thinking skills.

        • Gobby

          Any one know what this poor retarded person is saying?.

      • James Gilliam

        You ask what do we want the Police to do. We want them to do the job they were hired to do. Not to stand back and watch people riot and destroy property public or private. As far as killing them they can start with less than lethal, and then if needed start filling body bags. That is the whole problem with the way these terrorists are handled, they are not MADE to follow the law and now they think laws do not apply to them.

        • gunslinger97

          Yeah, three or four cops to arrest and control a crowd of hundreds? For the pay cops get? You sure is a dumb one

      • Beverly Seymour

        Arrest and prosecute them for destroying public property. It is not like this is something legal to do! Can we all just go out and destroy public property we do not like? Hey, I have a little list here…..

      • OldNYFirefighter

        If they assault me, they will die! They need to be arrested & made to pay for the damage they did, as simple as that. Some jail time would also be necessary.

      • If necessary!

      • Myerson

        Not a bad idea.

      • G Robert Jones

        Taz

      • disqus_xIdL3YzMYs

        In a riot situation like the declared unlawful assembly on Saturday, the antifa scum should be shot on sight destroying property, not to mention assaulting the lawful protesters.

      • patriot6

        Why are you going to the opposite extreme? There are alternatives to doing nothing or killing people, like arrest for breaking the law.

      • 2 parrots and a dog

        How about them doing their job.

      • Jule Westcott

        yes kill them all. civil war and the race war has begun

      • standingintime

        They need to arrest those that actually did the damage, they need to spend at least 6 months in jail, minimum! Have you noticed most of ’em are young – so they have no idea of history and what it means to most Americans.

      • junkmansj

        They had time to Stop that destruction. Did not happen in seconds,took time to get that strap around it

      • Russ Foster

        If thats what it takes to protect property. If Police are afraid to do there jobs bring in the national guard . Put these terrorists in jail with serious jail time and heavy fines. Maybe then they will know there is still laws in the USA.

    • NCRed

      Very specifically in this case, Durham PD had no jurisdiction, the monument was on county property (the courthouse grounds) and the S/O would have had to handle that (and they are making arrests post-event).

    • Janet G

      Yes that is their job, but they were ordered to Stand Down. What the hell?
      Do you think they enjoyed being at the ready and having to stand by and
      watch. The same with the National Guards. What do you expect from a
      crazy governor. Some were able to intervene, but they were out numbered
      by an insane crowd of HATERS.

  • Gobby

    It is sad bluelivesmatter has been taken over by the hard right, it started out as a website dedicated to the Police but now it is filled with lowlife white supremacist’s. bluelivesmatter has become irrelevant.

    • Doug Dougie Jaeger

      It’s sad that you haven’t figured out how to hate white supremacists, antifa and other hate groups at the same time.

      • Gobby

        I unlike you don’t feel the need to hate anyone.

        • FoCoBiking

          You’re a leftist. You hate everyone, especially yourself or those doing better than you.

          • Gobby

            I’m a registered Democrat who owns a $750,000 home if that helps you.

          • FoCoBiking

            Of course. I’ll bet you live in a gated community while demanding the rest of us absorb cultural fallout that minorities bring with them and grandstanding to the rest of us about how we need to be tolerant and accepting. You’re a vile, immoral, disgusting person.

          • Gobby

            I have never come across one gated community here in New Paltz, we all seem to get along with each other.

          • roy

            you own it or the bank owns it ….

          • roy

            there are 750 k houses 3 miles from JFK in a crappy neighborhood … lol

          • Gobby

            I travel to JFK Airport frequently but I have no intention of living there

          • Gobby

            Its all mine a 6 bedroom house and 23 acres of beautiful trees.

          • Ole Buck

            Sure you do. Your car is a Lamborghini and your jet is a Gulfstream. You have also slept with Morgan Fairchild, yeah that’s the ticket.

          • OldNYFirefighter

            So what I am a Republican with three houses, three vehicles & a Class A motor home & I am also a retired Engineer. I earned every one of them. Of course that has nothing to do with the topic.

        • Doug Dougie Jaeger

          That’s very SJW of you. Bye now…

    • FoCoBiking

      You’re a moron. Go kill yourself you noncontributing piece of shit.

      • Gobby

        Fuck you asswipe, you are as irrelevant as my turds.

        • FoCoBiking

          Get a job, scum.

          • Gobby

            I got a very well paying job thank you.

          • OldNYFirefighter

            Not me, retired & loving every minute of it, including my trip to Alaska in my Motor Home. Time to see the country, but I avoid Democrat controlled cities, bad for your health ya know, NYC included.

    • OldNYFirefighter

      I have LEO’s in my family & I will support them with my life if necessary. If I am there, I will protect their back because BLM has declared war against LEO’s.

      • Highest common denominator

        why are you mentioning BLM? They aren’t the issue here, racist fuck.

  • RocksCryOut

    What will the cops do when antifa slime take pickaxes to the Washington Memorial? Or the Jefferson Memorial? Stand back as the unwashed masses cheer?

    • UserName

      …and what about when revenge statue attacks begin – one’s the left likes & doesn’t want destroyed? This is not going to end well & they don’t realize what they’re starting. Police & city/gov’t officials need to nip this in the bud!

      • Gobby

        Whoa dude if any right of centre ass wipe attempts to tear down the Statue of Liberty my fist would be in there ball sack faster then lightening.

        • gunslinger97

          I have a feeling your hand has been around a bunch of ball sacks

      • standingintime

        Not going to happen as long as you Democrats in control of whatever city is having the riot. They will just tell their police force to stand down then denied later they said it. Its already happen just like that.

    • Gobby

      Unwashed masses? I despise your politics but I love my liberal leaning shower.

      • Ole Buck

        People who have zero knowledge of the causes of the War Between the States are unwashed, and ignorant too. Liberal or conservative, you can learn the true American history.

    • gunslinger97

      Yep, because that is what the public has decided it wants. You want them to try to arrest people, in a crowd of hundreds of their supporters. The person decides they don’t want to be arrested and starts fighting with the cop. The crowd moves in and starts hitting and kicking the cop too. The cop uses deadly force to protect himself from a crowd of dozens. Then everyone screams that the cop killed them for doing nothing but vandalism. You all want a perfect world, but it does not work that way.

  • Obiwan

    The police forgot who has their backs. I am so disappointed in them.

  • Todd Bixby

    whats the narative if they attack someone and they use deadly force to stop it?

    • Gobby

      Tearing down a old bit of metal is hardly a means for deadly force, I never realised just how stupid right wingers were, you lot are just a temporarily flash in the griddle.

      • FoCoBiking

        Erasing history is a red flag. You’re a seditious piece of shit and you will be dealt with eventually. Your kind always are.

        • Gobby

          The Lord will take me when my time has run out, but ass wipes like yourself will never meet our Lord, you are going to a darker place.

          • FoCoBiking

            Oh, your Lord? Are you a bible reader, scumbag? Let’s talk bible! Last time I checked, politics wasn’t a condition for access to the Lord, ya fuckin’ moron!

        • Highest common denominator

          you’re not erasing history by tearing down a statue. the civil war and all its traitorous members in the South are remembered in museums and textbooks.

      • OldNYFirefighter

        Antifa have beaten people with baseball bats, pipes, bricks, bottles filled with nails & thrown Molotov coctails at police & protestors against BLM. If they start attacking people there will be hell to pay & they will pay dearly. You have reading comprehension problems as he didn’t say tearing down a statue, he said attacking people, which they have already done around the country.

  • Terry D Gibbens

    this is truly FU

    • Highest common denominator

      fascists are right wing, not left.

      • Look at the description of fascism. Right is called fascist as a label but they aren’t. Left wing way is real fascism. That’s it.

        • Highest common denominator

          no, fascist is to the right because it’s to the right. Communism/Anarchy is the left.

          • gunslinger97

            Can’t read a dictionary huh?

  • Bob Trower

    Very adult action. Kicking and spitting on a piece of metal. I’ll bet there wasn’t a person there that even knew who the statue was and or represented. Or even when, where, or why there was a civil war!
    I guess it’s best if we pretend that the war never happened.

    • FoCoBiking

      By pretending the war never happened, they are starting another.

      • Bob Trower

        I’m not from the south. But there should be a place somewhere for these beautiful works of art. Shameful!

        • Highest common denominator

          now here, I agree with you. the statues can be placed in a museum or auctioned off to a private collection. even if it’s bad history, it’s still history.

    • Highest common denominator

      There was a civil war because the south wanted to enslave human beings. feel free to correct me and say “state’s rights,” but they were fighting mainly for the state’s right to continue keeping humans as animals.

      And bringing down a statue doesn’t mean people will forget the damn Civil War, so that argument is bullshit as well. You realize there are all kinds of books and museums documenting the war, right? Southerners are mad that their losing-ass traitorous heroes won’t be there to greet them at the courthouse for much longer.

  • Brian Hayes

    ANTIFA, You already slipping, you are a Domestic enemy to my Country, and you are looking for trouble, you come any where around my family, forget about the fighting, scrapping, squabing, and bucking; I’ll squeeze the piece you jumping, dodging, ducking, squatting under cars and trucks screaming. . .

      oh shit, INTERNET THREATS. This guy is not fucking around.

    Is this Antifa just an addition to BLM Etc? Soros paid…

  • Beverly Seymour

    So can other people go tear down any martin Luther King monument they do not like?

    • Highest common denominator

      why would you tear down an MLK statue? Because he’s black?

      You should watch the video. It’s mostly white people. Your equal response would be to tear down a white Union officer’s statue.

  • Joe Voter

    Put it back up.
    Destroying that property is not a crime?
    Who will be held accountable?
    Make hem pay for the repair and re-installation. Why are we talking about this?

    Not rhetorical. Those questions want answers!

  • Democrats destroying statues of Democrats.

    • Highest common denominator

      not the same democrats. maybe you were absent that day in US History class, but there was a political shift at the turn of the 20th century. What we now know as Democrats were Republicans (i.e. Lincoln), and what we now know as Republicans are Democrats (formerly known as Dixie Democrats).

  • C Ken Davis Sr

    they should all be arrested. this is destruction of property…the only thing that comes from the cops not stopping them is eventually there will be gun fire and some of these self absorbed little spoiled shit heads will be down.

  • C Ken Davis Sr

    go where they live and destroy their property. destroy their cars, their dorms and apartments…..burn their clothes and smash their computers.

    • Highest common denominator

      why? the statue didn’t belong to anyone, so the equivalent response wouldn’t be destroying personal property.

  • Pushed to the limit

    The taliban does this too.

  • Bob Trower

    Sad and shameful. This mob looked like the mobs in Iraq doing away of the Sodom Hussain.

  • Randy Dowdy

    Start shooting these rabid animals down in the streets, and this animalisttic, unciilized behavior would stop. Then send the bills to REPLACE the statues to BLM. It’s time these attem[ts to rewrite history by these obviously untalented, uncivilized animals is stopped. Now think how many laws were broken here.? How many citations were issued? Yeah, that’s what I thought. Now reverse the situation and let a group of white folks tear down a MLK JR statue by white men. Would things be treaated equal? NO! They would chare the whites for everything under the sun. FACT. Cops need to get their cajoles back and do their jobs; OR QUIT, so that someone else will step up and do the job according to the LAW.

    • Highest common denominator

      why exactly would the opposite of this situation be bringing down a black statue? You do see the video, right? VASTLY white people doing the heavy work.

      It’s funny how Southerners still harbor so much ill will for non-white people, when it was white people who crushed your shit in the Civil War.

  • Joe Dickey

    The further down in the comments you go, the more ridiculous they become. It seems that every time a story like this appears on FaceBook, the crazies fire up their electronic mouths and commence insulting everyone on the ideological side opposing their own distorted opinions. It seems to make little difference if the comments expressed are valid, which they rarely are, or whether or not they pertain to the subject at hand. While denying they possess the least bit of malice toward any other member of the human race, their rhetoric unmasks just how truly despicable these people are. In the absence of legal consequences for such action, these ideological warriors would gleefully murder the individual(s) they have engaged in a pointless diatribe. It never seems to register with them that they have displayed their complete lack of civility for the entire population of FaceBook to witness. Somehow such behavior escapes any realization they have disclosed precisely just how completely empty their mind is to possibly hundreds of thousands of readers. Devoid of a reasonable level of education and possessing no grasp of the art of critical thinking, their ultimate response when confronted with any meaningful fact is to boldly advise a verbal combatant, “you suck!” This, of course, forever labels the one who utters the statement as a complete moron and serves only to encourage the opposing party to define his or her condition as being that of “a piece of shit.” Those individuals seeking further information related to the headlined story, including the positions taken by commentators, are thereby woefully disappointed in the knowledge they have gained. They can only come away with the conclusion that both of the involved individuals are pieces of shit who suck.

  • 2 parrots and a dog

    The thing about the left is that every time an officer stands down or the MSM and politicians make excuses for lawbreakers, they see it as a sign of weakness and things keep escalating. With unfit members of Congress encouraging and applauding them, the media making excuses for them and blaming the victims, judges refusing to follow the Constitution, and many of other problems, decent hard working Americans have already lost. Obama got the ball going and no one seems interested in stopping it. With office politics and leftist supervisors still in positions of power from years of Democratic rule, it is an uphill battle that becomes steeper every day..
    The bottom line is that without the control that the left globalists have over the MSM and the jobs of the MSM employees at risk when jobs are scarce, none of this would be happening.The lawyers who are more interested in making a quick buck and encouraging bogus lawsuits with outrageous judgements are running are neck and neck with the MSM. Not only are the national monuments a part of the heritage of all Americans, but they are also priceless works of art that belong to all Americans and most were funded by private citizens.
    Why are the priceless monuments being pulled down? The answer is truly quite simple. The left is doing everything possible to overthrow duly elected President Trump and have failed to do so at every turn. Dangerous people are being deported now that were going to create the kind of chaos they need to destroy this nation and rebuild it without any freedom. It is all about power and greed, but we all know that already. Then they began their new name for patriotic white people who love their country. White nationalists. There are plenty of hard working Americans who love their country and they do come in more than one shade of skin. That would destroy their entirely made up narrative that all whites are evil so they ignore that.
    So here is the answer to the destruction of our priceless monuments. No one is buying the other nonsense except the brain dead. What better way to prove white Americans are all racists than to tear down historic works of art depicting Southern leaders. The truth is that they would have had the same kind of protests if they had torn down monuments of Northern leaders. Most of the protestors are too ignorant to know that slavery was a side issue in the Civil War that only affected the very wealthy. Most people in the South were against it. Of course that doesn’t fit their narrative either. That’s why children are never taught the true reasons for the war.
    Hundreds of families fought against each other in the Civil War. Many died. The monuments were part of the healing process. No one ever hears about Sherman’s march to the sea where they raped, looted, killed with abandon, and burned everything along the way regardless of innocence or how abused the Southerners were post war.No one escaped their wrath, not even children or pregnant women. They didn’t burn it down because of slavery. They burned it because the South had dared to leave the USA. Are we supposed to follow that example and do the same in California? Should we then pull down priceless monuments in California that reflect the state before they joined the union?
    It is way past the time that this violent illegal effort, whether physically or financially, should have been stopped. Most Americans are appalled it has been allowed to go on as long as it has. it is time to remove those who do not keep their oath off office whether they are members of Congress or judges. The MSM as well as Congress must be held accountable and go to prison if convicted.The public has been placed in danger with callous disregard for far too long and office politics should never interfere with law enforcement. Any person holding a public office whether elected or appointed should be immediately and permanently removed from that office if they do not uphold their oath or of they deliberately ignore what the Constitution really says. They do enjoy deceiving people by misinterpreting it. The time for President Trump to get that ball rolling is now or we will not have any freedom left to take or property.

    Well I know from now on I’ll be carrying a gun just in case we run into a mob like this because if the police will not do their job people from Antifa and Blm will die. People you need to arm yourselves and use it when they come at you to attack , do not hesitate to pull the trigger if you do they will kill you and your family.

  • Terri Sturgill

    These people are truly psychotic. They not only feel that a statue will harm their psyche… they have a need to punish by physically kicking, a crumpled metal object. Is their anger over the top? WELL I GUESS.
    WE MUST get behind our police and be sure that our town/county/state administrations know that we expect rioting to be stopped. I didn’t say protest, for soon as a protest turns to violent acts IT IS A RIOT and therefore stepping over the line of protected speech [or acts].

  • scaatylobo

    The ability of the police to stop a RIOT,and not use deadly force is not written and will not be enforced.
    That was as far back as the 1960’s.
    I am not in favor of taking a life to protect “property”.
    BUT looting and rioting have gone far above what was once upon a time considered a extreme use of force.
    Now,either real force is used [ yes ,even deadly force ] or let all LEO’s withdraw to avoid being killed or suffer serious injury.
    CHOOSE = anarchy,or some real form of LAW & ORDER.

  • Chris

    Antifa huh? And then they ‘moved to march on PD HQ”. Wow sounds ominous, unless you read the source that is cited in this ‘article” – http://abc11.com/politics/the-latest-protesters-topple-durham-confederate-statue/2308015/

    Interesting how you can write an article about throwing rocks and bombs at cops in the context of a story about the vandalism of a single statute under the watchful eyes and video of the police. But this site isnt about the truth or the support of police is it? Its all about that ad money.

This is out of control we are allowing CHILDREN to try and control this crap…enough is ENOUGH …I wish that the President would have called in the National Guard ….it would have ended not in the favor of this terrorist group
