  1. and from the comment section...Takiyah Thompson is a member of the Workers World Party, which is a communist party in the United States, founded in 1959 by a group led by Sam Marcy of the Socialist Workers Party. Don't think for a second that her actions were to fight the white supremacists. Her agenda is to topple the American government. All countries that had to endure communism had the exact same sequence of events happen.... first destroy all the statues and monuments. Then burn books and then make it illegal to speak out against the regime. DOn't be a..holes.... see what is happening and fight back.

  3. Durham Sheriff: We Have Identified Suspects In Memorial Destruction – It’s Arrestin’ Time BY COWGIRL ON AUGUST 15, 2017 Durham Sheriff Mike Andrews says that the vandals will be arrested. Durham Sheriff Mike Andrews Says That Many Statue Vandals Have Been Identified Durham, NC – Durham County Sheriff Mike Andrews said on Tuesday, that there is an active investigation against the suspects who toppled a Confederate memorial statue, and that every legal option available will be used to charge those identified. The incident occurred on Monday evening in front of the courthouse, according to MyFox8. Antifa formed a march carrying signs that said, “Cops and Klan go hand in hand,” and blocking off roadways. The crowd became angry, marched on the confederate solder statue in front of the courthouse, put a ladder against it, climbed it, and attached a yellow rope to it. The protesters then pulled on the statue until it toppled to the ground. The protest was quickly planned after the tragic events in Charlottesville over the past weekend. Organizers of the event said that their goal was to “smash white supremacy.” In a statement, Sheriff Andrews said he was “grateful” that no one was hurt, and that county officials had made the decision to act “with restraint” toward the protesters. Many people had questioned why none of the law enforcement officers who were at the protests stood down while the statue was being toppled. But officials from Sheriff Andrews’ staff were there, filming what happened, according to The Herald-Sun. Sheriff Andrews said, “Collectively, we decided that restraint and public safety would be our priority. As the Sheriff, I am not blind to the offensive conduct of some demonstrators nor will I ignore their criminal conduct. With the help of video captured at the scene, my investigators are working to identify those responsible for the removal and vandalism of the statue.” The sheriff said that many suspects have already been identified and would be arrested. The monument was erected in 1924, and shows a Confederate soldier holding a rifle. The words “in memory of the boys who wore the gray” are inscribed on it. It has been vandalized once before, in 2015, when an unknown suspect painted ‘Black Lives Matter’ at its base. In response to the statue being toppled by demonstrators, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said “the racism and deadly violence in Charlottesville is unacceptable but there is a better way to remove these monuments.” Sheriff Andrews has also asked city and county officials to establish guidelines and ‘safe protest spaces’ to prevent demonstrations from becoming “disruptive and dangerous.”

"Iran can not be allowed to use the nuclear deal to hold the world hostage, and the nuclear agreement should not be too big to fail," Halley said in a statement. "New US sanctions have nothing to do with the nuclear agreement with Iran." Halle will go to Vienna next week for talks on Iran's nuclear activities with IAEA officials as part of a review of Tehran's commitment to the principles of a nuclear deal signed in 2015.
