The left’s movement to erase our nation’s rich and diverse history has run into a brick wall.

And some of these riots have been very dangerous.

Who can forget that moment in Virginia when BLM rioters tore down a Confederate statue and part of the stone fell on a rioter and caused serious brain damage?

In Philadelphia, the brotherly love has returned, after a group of Italian Americans went to court to have a plywood box covering a Christopher Columbus Statue removed.

A plywood box that covered a statue of Christopher Columbus in South Philadelphia for more than two years has been removed, following a ruling in commonwealth court.
The ruling came down late last week and the box was removed late Sunday night.

The court ruling also reversed a previous order and will allow for a clear structure to be built around the statue.

In June 2020, the statue became the point of contention between groups who wanted to defend it from vandalism amid ongoing social unrest, and other groups who saw the statue as a symbol of hate. The confrontations between the opposing sides resulted in violence and arrests.

The 146-year-old statue in South Philadelphia’s Marconi Plaza was covered by the box back that same month.

Just listen to those cheers:
