Biden reverses Trump policy on vandalism of monuments

[Ed. – The purpose of this can only be to paint a target on public monuments.  There’s no constitutional “right” to attack monuments.  It’s not as though Trump’s determination to deter vandalism was some crisis of law or due process.  This is just radicalism for radicalism’s sake.  Oh — and it does formally reopen federal funds to localities that make no effort to protect national monuments (or that actively encourage thugs from Antifa and BLM in attacking them).]

Biden’s determined drive to “cancel” all things Trump continued on Friday when he issued his 146,785th [sarc] executive order, this one revoking multiple Trump orders, including several tied to the defacement and vandalism of public monuments during last year’s “racial justice” riots — AKA: “peaceful protests” — as reported by The Washington Times.

According to The Washington Times, Biden’s order negates Trump’s June 2020 order that made it the policy of the United States to prosecute people who deface or damage public property to the “fullest extent” of the law. Trump’s order also said it was the policy of the U.S. to withhold federal funds from state and local governments and law enforcement agencies that fail to protect public monuments and spaces from vandalism.
