CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Police in Virginia say that two people have been arrested after a Confederate monument was vandalized in the city of Charlottesville.
Charlottesville police spokesman Tyler Hawn said in an email that the arrests were made early Thursday morning at the statue of General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.
Hawn did not release the individuals’ names but said more information will be released.
The city’s Confederate statues have become the frequent target of vandalism in recent months. There is also a statue in the city of General Robert E. Lee.
Here is the update with the names of these two paste-eating neanderthals
Charlottesville Police said they arrested 31-year-old Nicolas McCarthy-Rivera and 44-year-old Jesse Tobias Beard, both of Charlottesville, on charges of felony vandalism and misdemeanor trespassing.
These reprobate bastards should be beaten with sticks. Then they should be made to study Stonewall Jackson, and the man he was. In truth you have to have an IQ of 50 or less to deface a memorial to General Jackson! Seriously, who attacks war memorials? Go watch the video at the link, and yes, that includes any Republicans who are not up to speed on Jackson, Lee, and many other Confederate leaders and soldiers. Those who still spread the false narrative that no Southerner fought for any reason except slavery, and that every state seceded solely to preserve slavery need to stop! Those who seek to remove slavery as a cause are wrong, as are those who seek to remove the other issues that were causes as well. They are helping the leftists who will erase every last aspect of American history if not stopped!
A St. Bernard Parish native who spent most of his non-military life in New Orleans, Beauregard was a man of great contradiction. He fired the first shots in a war to preserve slavery, yet in defeat argued passionately for human rights and for granting black people the right to vote.
