Listen if you’re gonna vandalize something in an attempt to make an intellectual argument for your political cause, maybe bring a dictionary with ya, huh?

A Confederate monument at White Point Gardens was vandalized with graffiti.
The graffiti was discovered Sunday morning as thousands gathered downtown to honor the victims killed at Emanuel AME Church.
The words ‘Black Lives Matter’ and ‘This was the problem #racist’ is spray painted on the base. The vandals also called out Mayor Joe Riley and Governor Nikki Haley scrawling “Riley and Haley -Why defend this evil -This the root of our evil.”
Samaritans moved quickly to cover the base with a tarp but it was just as quickly uncovered by other passers-by.
The monument, “To the Confederate Defenders of Charleston – Fort Sumter,” was placed in the southeast corner of White Point Garden by The United Daughters of the Confederacy.
Great job, morons. Destroying property will certainly convince the people who defend the confederacy that you’re not idiots.
