War Memorial Defaced

I found out about this story from the Voice of the People USA’s website:

This is a heinous act though I have serious doubts it was carried out by the MS-13 gang. I don’t have any misconceptions about MS-13 being a terrible and violent gang, but this just looks fishy to me. The person or group that carried this out are terribly ill and will hopefully be caught and prosecuted.A little research on MS-13 graffiti will show that this looks more like a setup to promote further propaganda against migrants as it will cause people to fear Hispanics. MS-13 is a violent Hispanic gang with members mostly from El Salvador or of El Salvadorian descent. So naturally this act puts the spotlight on Hispanic immigrants. Hopefully it will be taken seriously and we’ll find out who the perpetrators are.

It would be very sadly ironic if this were similar to the Gulf of Tonkin Incident.

  1. It’s very…unartistic, no? Most of the gang graffiti I’ve seen requires some skill on the part of the graffiti artist, and that right there seems like something any random kid could do.

    Still, MS-13 needs to be dealt with…but surely the whole murder, human trafficking, drugs, etc., aspect is more worrying than vandalism, right?

  2. I agree. Murder is much worse than defacing public property. It just gives nativist groups something else to rant about and more fuel for the fear fire.
