An Antifa mob toppled a statue of Christopher Columbus in the Little Italy neighborhood of Baltimore Saturday night. No police were seen in sight according to video of the mob attack by several hundred anti-American guerrillas. The mob dragged the toppled statue over to the Inner Harbor and tossed it in the water.

A spokesman for Baltimore Mayor Jack Young basically said the mayor doesn’t give a damn, “Baltimore police “are principally concerned with the preservation of life,” @mayorbcyoung’s spokesman says. “That is sacrosanct. Everything else falls secondary to that, including statues.”
