This weekend radical leftists in Charlotte, North Carolina vandalized a 20-foot-tall World War II memorial with communist symbols.
This comes after leftists continue to target American memorials and historic statues of Confederate leaders, Christopher Columbus and America’s Founding Fathers.
This from Charlotte NC. A WW2 memorial. Defaced by open communists. Why do we continue to tolerate this? This is what the left wants. If y’all don’t vote in November look what’s coming.https://t.co/tnnYStxdm2

FOX News reported:
The 20-foot-tall memorial, located at Evergreen Cemetery in Charlotte, contains the names of more than 500 county residents who died fighting in WWII, WBTV reported.
Somewhere between Sunday evening and Monday morning, it was defaced with references to communism, including a hammer and sickle and the words: “Glory to the day of heroism June 19, 1986.”
The phrase is a reference to a prison massacre in Peru, in which some 224 people were killed by the military after a series of riots.
A portion of the WWII monument that read, “Dedicated to the memory of the Mecklenburg heroes of World War II who made the supreme sacrifice that you might live in liberty, freedom and peace,” was also covered in yellow paint.
Later Monday, a group of people were spotted scrubbing off the paint. U.S. Air Force veteran Wayne White told Fox 17 he rounded up some friends to help clean the monument after seeing images of the defacing on social media.
Thank you Wayne Wright for your initiative.
