On the evening of Independence Day, a crowd in Sacramento tore down a statue of St. Junipero Serra, set fire to it, and beat it with sledgehammers.
The statue, on the grounds of California’s state capitol, was the third figure of the missionary saint to be torn down by crowds in California in recent weeks. Sacramento’s bishop responded by saying that Serra worked to promote the dignity of indigenous people.
A large crowd gathered around the statue in Capitol Park at around 9 p.m. on July 4, according to media reports.
One man burned the face of the Serra statue with an ignited spray from an aerosol can, before it was pulled from its base using tow straps. After the statue fell, members of the crowd struck the statue with a sledgehammer and other objects, dancing and jumping upon it.

The crowd chanted “Rise up, my people, rise up,” while destroying the statue.
They dispersed when California Highway Patrol officers intervened, the Sacramento Bee reported….
The Sacramento Bee reported that some protestors on the Capitol grounds carried signs saying “decolonize the streets,” and that advocates of the Black Lives Matter movement and American Indian Movement referred amid their protests to Independence Day as the “Farce of July….”
The above comes from a July 5 story on the site of the Catholic News Agency.
These people are full of evil and do the works of their father the devil. A statewide exorcism is desperately needed. And the democrats that RUiN the state? They let the mobs do whatever they want and continue their anti Catholic pogrom (see San Francisco Archdiocese).
Yes, Robert E. Lee, Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson, Junipero Serra, George Washington, Christoper Columbus, Teddy Roosevelt, St. Louis the IV King of France, countless Roman Catholic Churches defaced and defamed by the Marxist-Leninist mobs burning, looting, killing. Again over the weekend 67 shootings and 7 more Blacks murdered by Blacks in Chicago and not one word from the Left-wing media, Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Kaepernick, BIden. As President Trump said at Mt. Rushmore on Friday night, our children are taught from grade school to hate America and that we are a evil and racist nation, stand up now or we are finished as a nation it is happening as we watch it before our eyes.
Clinton R. you are correct in saying this is a pogrom against Catholics it is in all reality, this was never about racism or George Floyd not in the least we are all adults here and clearly see it nightly. Tearing down statues of Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Columbus, Roosevelt, Serra, Lee, burning, looting, murder, beating, tell me what does this have to do with addressing racism? This was all a smoke screen by the Left and the Radical Democrat Party with the help of George Soros to bring down this country plain as day and it is working. Why? because the Republicans are scared stiff to do or say anything to offend the mobs, because they will be called racists as well, so much for the GOP to protect us and save us from the terrorists running wild at will. You all better hope this Fall that Trump is reelected if not Biden is in and will be ruled by the AOC wing of the Democrat party and then and only then will you see utter chaos, civil unrest like never before and we let it happen, yes we let it happen. One thing about the Democrats they keep their promises, the warning is clear my friends.
Brought to you by the Democrat Party
The Democrats played with fire for far too long by coddling the haters on the fringe. They’re quickly becoming the party of hate and irrationality and, frankly, I think it’s too late for them to stop the complete transference.
Where are the bishops in all this. Why don’t we see them standing for our rights. Now we can’t sing in church. We are wearing masks and only 100 people can attend. Yes these people are evil. They are certainly trying to push us toward communism. We need to get rid of these Democrats, starting with Newsom.
Just look around you. Nearly all of the Bishops are left wing Democrats.
So do you like this anarchy, this vandalism, this sacrilege, this looting, this rioting? If so, keep voting democrat. Yes, the same democrat party, democrat mayors, democrat city councils, and democrat governors that allow these riots, anarchy, and attacks on our Churches and cities, while telling us law abiding folks to stay home, wear our masks, and stay away from our Churches. It’s evil against good and the democrat party condones it!
