BLM Vandals Strike Elvis Presley’s Graceland

Remember when the debate over public places, flags, monuments, and the like was supposedly about Confederate generals? Then it morphed to anyone who ever owned slaves, which swiftly devolved to any statue of anyone who appeared to have been white and lived a long time ago. Now it’s…Elvis?

Elvis Presley was white, but otherwise he doesn’t fit the BLM riot target model very well. He didn’t fight in the Civil War, because he wasn’t around then. He didn’t fight in any war. He died in 1977, which may be ancient history to some but others of us were actually alive and remember him. He was a singer. The King of Rock ‘N Roll.

Elvis wasn’t particularly political, though he did meet Nixon once.

Nevertheless, his former home, Graceland, has not escaped the wrath of the vandals.

The wall outside @VisitGraceland in #Memphis where #Elvis fans write their names and tributes to The King was vandalized overnite. #BlackLivesMatter #DefundMPD #AbolishIce & #BreonnaTaylor were spray painted all over the wall.

Elvis Presley’s estate was vandalized with “Black Lives Matter” and “Defund the Police” graffiti overnight into Tuesday.

The protest slogans were found spray-painted in black and orange on the stone wall surrounding the King’s mansion, a signature Memphis landmark and major tourist draw, local newspaper The Commercial Appeal reported.

“Abolish ICE” and “F–k Trump” were also among the spray-painted phrases.

The graffiti covered up many of the hundreds of tributes to the music icon handwritten by fans on the wall over the years.

It all seems obligatory now. Spray-paint anarchy, hate, and obscenities onto anything that anyone values for any reason, to debase and devalue it and to offend as many as possible. This is not about winning hearts and minds and hasn’t been for a long time. It’s about license and intimidation. Stop us if you can.

They need to be stopped. Local leaders bear responsibility for public safety at the local level. They either must do their jobs or step aside.

Another Memphis landmark, historic concert venue The Levitt Shell, was defaced with similar graffiti, including “Eat the Rich” and “Defund MPD [Memphis Police Department].”

Why? Stop us if you can.

Cities with leaders who have decided to stop this have succeeded. I’ve brought up San Antonio, Texas, a few times during the now three months of rioting because leaders there made a decision early on to repel the insurrectionists. San Antonio hasn’t seen trouble since then. Democrats run that city. They just decided not to allow it to be destroyed. So it hasn’t been.

    And just think, this whole disaster is based on the so called killing of model citizen George Floyd( wait ’til they see the autopsy) and the fiction of Institutional racism, Systemic racism and structural racism of police officers towards black people. They should take a look at those FACTS. Worse than shameful>>>>

    This group of THUGS & ANARCHIST should have been taken care of long ago. Now, those responsible should be tried for their destruction of public and private property, and receive just punishment for their evil deeds. If this is not done, they will become more emboldened and this anarchy will continue. In having let it go on so long, it is going to take some real brutality to bring it to a close. My contention is, this nation is headed for a civil war, or perhaps even a race war. The parties are not endearing themselves to anyone and are making a great mistake for their future. Their antics will not be tolerated for too much longer.

    Lives, human lives matter to me regardless of color. If you want to insist on only black lives then go find another black racist to agree with you. And keep your hands off of Graceland! If I had passed by while your were doing your graffiti I’d have showed you some trick shooting. Elvis’ memory shouldn’t be messed up with idiotic crap.

    Fire hoses and dogs could solve some of that. These are just thugs and should be prosecuted instead of let loose on the public. House them at gitmo for a while.

    Too little too late as the saying goes. Also give them an inch they will take mike. All this violent, anarchy, burning, looting, killing, insurrection, sedition, and hate have been allowed so now it feels in control. Good luck with trying get it all back in Pandora’s box. What would have been easy to correct has now become the prelude to a hot civil war in the Good ole USA. This has come about due to the infiltration Christian/Catholic churches by destructive evil forces. The politicians have been corrupted by money and power decades ago. The courts are corrupt, especially the U S Supreme Court (an oxymoron term) where they , though unelected legislators, now make laws, and we the people who are are each other’s throats just the cor4upt p9s need us to be. The USA is now walking the Roman Death Highway on it’s way to extinction. Enjoy the ride, we deserve to get what we wished for.

    You know. South Africa has the right idea for thieves, vandles and car hackers. People are allowed to install “deterants” in their cars and homes. They use flamethrowers to handle these a..holes. They put a flamethrower under the cars and anyone who tries to stop them gets a good dose of the hot stuff. They can do the same at their homes. They add sprinkler systems to keep from harming their homes.
