Protesters knock down Roosevelt, Lincoln statues in Portland



Portland protesters knock down statues of Teddy Roosevelt, Abe Lincoln



PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Protesters overturned statues of former Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln in Portland, Oregon, on Sunday night in a declaration of “rage” toward Columbus Day.
Protest organizers dubbed the event "Indigenous Peoples Day of Rage,” in response to Monday's federal holiday named after 15th-century Italian explorer Christopher Columbus, a polarizing figure who Native American advocates have said spurred centuries of genocide against indigenous populations in the Americas.
The group threw chains around Roosevelt's statue, officially titled “Theodore Roosevelt, Rough Rider." They threw red paint on the monument and began using a blowtorch on the statue's base, news outlets reported.
The crowd pulled down the statue just before 9 p.m. The group later turned their attention toward Lincoln’s statue, pulling it down about eight minutes later.
Historians have said Roosevelt expressed hostility toward Native Americans, once saying: “I don’t go so far as to think that the only good Indians are dead Indians, but I believe nine out of every 10 are ...”
Protesters spray-painted “Dakota 38” on the base of Lincoln's statue, referencing the 38 Dakota men Lincoln approved to have hanged after the men were involved in a violent conflict with white settlers in Minnesota.
After toppling the statues, the crowd began smashing windows at the Oregon Historical Society and later moved onto the Portland State University Campus Public Safety office.
Police later declared the event a riot and ordered the group to disperse. Police said anyone involved in “criminal behavior, including vandalism” was subject to arrest. It's unclear if any arrests were made.
The monuments are the latest statues to come down in a wave of removed monuments and protests sparked by the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.

Roosevelt was a scumbag anyway. His statue should have been destroyed long ago. He removed the gold standard and made it illegal to keep gold. This meant that The American people were sold into slavery through usury, as you could no longer have savings that were not controlled by the banking cartel. Mason scumbag...

read what? You would have voted for Ron Paul then if you were American. He was always bitching about 24k economies and the evil fed lol
I don't vote, and I don't give a fuck about American politics...The depression was artificially created to allow the the stock market to crash, which let the elite by up all the shares for cents in the dollar, And become Mega wealthy. Removing the gold standard was the last step in taking independent wealth from people and tying them to the banking system. People were forced to trade in their gold for fuck all, or face prosecution. It is fact...

That statement shows you have no idea. Money is just paper...It is the infrastructure you build or things you buy with money that gives money value...unless you import shit, you don't have debt. We are told that our govt can't afford to build infrastructure, but it is bullshit, as all the things needed to make things are in Australia. No debt created. Australia has all the resources needed to create all the things needed to run our society. But because of our small population, a company cannot make enough turnover to become mega wealthy. That is why we were brought into the world economy by Hawke govt under Keating(floating the dollar). Which then lead to the destruction of our manufacturing companies as we then had to compete with countries that use slave labour. Australia needed to be in debt to allow the world to take our resources for their benefit. Even our resource recovery is privatised and we get royalties instead of the full value from them. To be part of the world system, we had to sign trade agreements that allowed foreign interests to buy up our companies, land, resources and essential services, as we were sold the line that privatisation makes things cheaper and more efficient. This is bullshit. Gold is a way to store wealth, as it doesn't deteriorate and it's rarity gives it it's value...

Look it up. You might learn something...since then, US dollar is not worth the paper it is written on, as there is no gold to back up the value of the currency...
I believe I've seen that documentary ,I even made a copy for my dad on dvd so he could watch it as it was that interesting.he didn't. I forget the name of the presenter dude. Fort Knox looks after other countries gold,then when they ask to see their own gold they are refused. If it's sat in a underground vault in a cage next to all the other gold in the world then why not yes,his a day to dust and we'll show you your gold.the paper is the money now. And from childhood Americans are taught that credit (with interest) is the best thing to have.a good credit rating. The Rothschild's run the banks,which are Jews,Jews run the world.

In a University of Chicago poll this year, not one of 40 top economists surveyed supported a return to gold. The last gold standard commission, established by President Ronald Reagan, voted by a wide margin against bringing it back. The size and complexity of the U.S. economy would also make the conversion extremely difficult. Just to back the dollars now in circulation and on deposit—about $2.7 trillion—with the approximately 261 million ounces of gold held by the U.S. government, gold prices would have to rise as high as $10,000 an ounce, up from about $1,780, causing huge inflation.

go play with your didgeridoo you fucking moron, this is why you have a victim mentality you're too stupid to comprehend facts

It would do the opposite. It would reign in inflation. Printing endless amounts of money is what causes inflation. Again, you have no idea...

Why do you think the GFC happened? Cause there was that much money in world circulation, that there wasn't enough resources or "things" on earth behind the money to back up the wealth. That is why they had to make an "adjustment". Money is just paper. You need to buy things with money to back up it's wealth.
