The knee-jerk reaction by Leftists to remove monuments is already beginning to backfire.
It's really stupid and dangerous to wipe away history. That's what ISIS and the Nazis did.
ChicagoTribune reports as protesters across the United States continue to call for the removal of Confederate monuments in the aftermath of a violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., anti-fascist protesters in Chicago are now demanding a monument gifted by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini be taken down.
About 50 protesters, some of whom traveled from Rockford and Indiana, gathered around the Balbo monument in Burnham Park, where they railed against city officials for allowing a greenish breccia column to stand as a tribute to a fascist regime.
The monument is an ancient Roman pillar seated atop a large stone base that reads, in part: "Fascist Italy with the sponsorship of Benito Mussolini presents to Chicago" this commemoration of a flight by Balbo "in the 11th year of the Fascist Era."
