Lincoln Memorial vandalised with profanity in Washington DC

The memorial to President Abraham Lincoln, who led the US through the Civil War, has been vandalised in Washington DC.

The vandals appear to have used red spray paint to write "[expletive] law" early on Tuesday morning, the National Park Service said in a statement.

Crews are removing it with a "gel-type architectural paint stripper that is safe for use on historic stone".
I wonder who the person or group that did this voted for.

Lincoln led the birth of the Republican Party. Nixon's Southern Strategy welcomed all racists. Today's Republican Party bears no resemblance to what Lincoln created. In truth, Lincoln would despise a racist like you.

It would be foolish to ignore how much Republicanism has changed over 150+ years.
And it is downright bizarre how Republicans can insist and demand on Confederate symbology be maintained on U.S. government property, but then insist that Lincoln is their guy...

In American politics, the southern strategy was a Republican Party electoral strategy to increase political support among white voters in the South by appealing to racism against African Americans.[1][2][3] As the Civil Rights Movement and dismantling of Jim Crow laws in the 1950s and 1960s visibly deepened pre-existing racial tensions in much of the Southern United States, Republican politicians such as presidential candidate Richard Nixon and Senator Barry Goldwater developed strategies that successfully contributed to the political realignment of many white, conservative voters in the South to the Republican Party that had traditionally supported the Democratic Party.[4] It also helped push the Republican Party much more to the right.[4]

You prefer the burning of the US flag? Those who so casually throw out the word "racists" never admit that is a 2 way street and it has been promoted to the under educated/informed as rampant against "dark" skins, in order to bring riots and division within this nation. It is a concentrated effort to keep many from paying attention to all the rights...for all the people...that are being challenged and eliminated. They hope people ignore the fact we have college campuses that refuse to let some people even come to speak to the students. They ignore the fact that some groups go through the process of being approved to have a rally and others that object to that are allowed to use force to stop that rally. They want people to ignore the fact of damage done to property, attacks on police etc that occurs by those opposed to a speaker or rally.

United we can stand, divided we will fall.

Yeah, there are two sides, and the Nazis and the KKK are one of those sides.
Which side are you on?
