Protect Our Monuments
Public monuments belong to all Americans and are not to be torn down by rampaging mobs and power-hungry bureaucrats. Citizens across the country are demanding that our elected officials protect our monuments.  To that end, the American Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU) has launched its Protect Monuments Project to educate and mobilize citizens and pressure public officials to protect historic monuments and buildings from leftist criminals and vandals who seek to erase our national history.

As part of the campaign, the ACRU has created a protect our monuments hotline. If you witness destruction or removal of national, state or local monuments, please contact the ACRU. The ACRU is ready to help protect the history and national memory of all Americans.

Call ACRU at 877 730 ACRU or contact the organization through their email portal.

Ambassador J. Kenneth Blackwell (a member of the ACRU Action Board of Directors) said of the campaign, “The American Constitutional Rights Union will work to protect our American history from “cancel culture” activists,  just as we fight every day to protect the constitutional rights of all Americans. We will not sit idly while domestic terrorists, anarchists and thugs criminally destroy monuments and private property. We will call out any public official who allows lawlessness and destruction.”

LTC Allen B. West (US Army, Retired), and a Member, 112th US Congress, endorsed the campaign saying, “We cannot and will not relinquish our historic monuments to the progressive socialist leftists who seek to stamp out our collective memory of the fight for freedom in the United States. On the battlefield and at home I will always defend the honor of our great country against insidious criminals and vandals, and I call on every public official to join me in pledging to protect our historic monuments.”

Evangelist Dr. Alveda C. King also endorsed saying, “While we are protecting our history, we are overcoming our biases; this is happening simultaneously. There is no need to vandalize property and real estate in this process. We must remember the good; that’s legacy. We must avoid repeating the bad; bad is sin. Remember, statues can be idols. As one blood, one human race; it’s time to return to God. #GODPOWER”

As President Trump stated in his Executive Order on Protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues and Combating Recent Criminal Violence:

Key targets in the violent extremists’ campaign against our country are public monuments, memorials, and statues.  Their selection of targets reveals a deep ignorance of our history, and is indicative of a desire to indiscriminately destroy anything that honors our past and to erase from the public mind any suggestion that our past may be worth honoring, cherishing, remembering, or understanding.  In the last week, vandals toppled a statue of President Ulysses S. Grant in San Francisco.  To them, it made no difference that President Grant led the Union Army to victory over the Confederacy in the Civil War, enforced Reconstruction, fought the Ku Klux Klan, and advocated for the Fifteenth Amendment, which guaranteed freed slaves the right to vote.  In Charlotte, North Carolina, the names of 507 veterans memorialized on a World War II monument were painted over with a symbol of communism.  And earlier this month, in Boston, a memorial commemorating an African-American regiment that fought in the Civil War was defaced with graffiti.  In Madison, Wisconsin, rioters knocked over the statue of an abolitionist immigrant who fought for the Union during the Civil War.  Christian figures are now in the crosshairs, too.  Recently, an influential activist for one movement that has been prominent in setting the agenda for demonstrations in recent weeks declared that many existing religious depictions of Jesus and the Holy Family should be purged from our places of worship.

It is likely the President’s Executive Order refers to Marxist Black Lives Matter leader Shaun King, who called for the destruction of churches and depictions of Jesus, and seemingly right on cue, statues of Saint Junípero Serra in San Francisco and Los Angeles were destroyed. To prevent future violence of that sort also demands that public officials assist in protecting private buildings, monuments and statues.

We urge CHQ readers and friends to support the American Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU) Protect Monuments Project. If a monument, memorial or statue in your community is under threat please call the Protect Monuments hotline at 877 730 ACRU or alert the organization through their email portal.
