Protestors in Portland, Oregon aren’t big fans of the Founding Fathers, so they’re toppling statues and defacing monuments in honor of George Floyd.

Vandals attached two large ropes around the Thomas Jefferson statue in front of Jefferson High School and yanked it from its pedestal during a march for Floyd on Sunday. They also spray painted “slave owner” and “George Floyd” on the white marble base, then replaced the Jefferson statue with a large white peace sign, KPTV reports.

In a video posted to Twitter, dozens of students involved screamed in elation as they pulled down the statue, which one student assaulted with a bat once it hit the ground.

“Yea, yea, that’s going viral,” a young man recording the stunt said in the video.

The march, organized by Rose City Justice, gathered about 1,000 people at the school by around 7:15 p.m. Sunday, when they left to march to Alberta Park, a black neighborhood that protestors claim is now gentrified. When the crowd returned around 10 p.m., they found the statue of the third president had been toppled by a smaller group, according to The Oregonian.

The crowd cheered as organizers mocked the scene.

“There’s an interesting piece of history up here,” an organizer told the crowd, “Mr. Thomas is all beside himself.”

“We’re taking this city back, one school at a time. One racist statue at a time,” the unnamed organizer said.

Jefferson inherited about 175 slaves and owned a total of about 600 in his lifetime, with the majority born on his plantations. Jefferson also authored the Declaration of Independence, which declares “that all men are created equal.”

According to Wikipedia:

Scholars remain divided on whether Jefferson truly condemned slavery and how he changed. Francis D. Cogliano traces the development of competing emancipationist then revisionist and finally contextualist interpretations from the 1960s to the present. The emancipationist view, held by various scholars at the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, Douglas L. Wilson, and others, maintains Jefferson was an opponent of slavery all his life, noting that he did what he could within the limited range of options available to him to undermine it, his many attempts at abolition legislation, the manner in which he provided for slaves, and his advocacy of their more humane treatment.

The revisionist view, advanced by Paul Finkelman and others, criticizes Jefferson for racism, for holding slaves, and for acting contrary to his words. Jefferson never freed most of his slaves, and remained silent on the issue while he was president.

Contextualists such as Joseph J. Elis emphasize a change in Jefferson’s thinking from his emancipationist views before 1783, noting Jefferson’s shift toward public passivity and procrastination on policy issues related to slavery. Jefferson seemed to yield to public opinion by 1794 as he laid the groundwork for his first presidential campaign against (John) Adams.

The incident in Oregon is only the latest example of anarchists and Black Lives Matter protestors targeting historical statues they perceive as racist monuments, and it followed just one day after protesters in Eugene Oregon toppled The Pioneer Man and Pioneer Mother statues at the University of Oregon, KPTV reports.
