At least one vandal spray-painted swastikas on more than 200 headstones at a cemetery in Glen Carbon, Illinois. At least nine homes and one vehicle in a nearby neighborhood were also vandalized with Swastikas. “We haven’t seen anything of this magnitude in the 30 years that I’ve been here,” Mark Johnson, the grounds superintendent of Sunset Hill Cemetery, told local CBS affiliate KMOV. Officials say they are working to try and wash away all the swastikas before Monday when a Memorial Day event was planned to honor the more than 1,300 veterans who are buried there.
They have arrested at least one suspect.
If you guessed it was a white male hooligan you may give yourself a “job well done” pat on the back.
It would seem that Trump’s election to the White House continues to empower white supremacists and inspire them to ever bolder demonstrations of arrogance and entitlement.
