The Think Tank Panel Does Not Mince Words When It Comes to the Mob Justice in Durham, NC

Protestors in Durham, North Carolina, toppled a statue of a Confederate soldier with a rope Monday night following a weekend of unrest at a “Unite the Right” rally held in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left one dead and 19 injured.

The statue was erected nearly 100 years ago and stood in front of an old courthouse in downtown Durham. In the video, protesters are heard chanting “No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA” before scaling the statue and toppling it with a bungee cord. The group of “anti-fascist” protesters then went on to spit, kick, and punch the toppled statue.

Today on Think Tank the panel discussed the state of the nation and the tactics now glorified by liberals.

“I have to tell you: what a bunch of frauds,” Glenn said. “They are posing. All of these people are posing. How many of them have been so ‘deeply offended’ by this that they have to go up, be the first one to spit on it. Stop it. Stop it. It’s insulting. It shows how stupid the American people have truly become.”

The panel was then reminded of a scene that occurred in nearly the same manner when a Saddam Hussein statue was toppled in Baghdad in April of 2003.

“This is so highly reminiscent to what happened in Iraq when they were tearing down Saddam Hussein’s statue,” said Nick Pitts of the Denison Forum.

It’s also highly reminiscent of ISIS militants destroying statues in a Catholic Church in the southern Philippines and ancient Christian holy sites in Iraq which militants believe go against Islam.

WATCH: This is the Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV (2020)

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury. The design of the crossover, based on an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV, follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity.

The show car combines the comfort and typical strengths of both body styles. These include the raised seating position and the athletic looks. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is conceived as an electric car. Thanks to its four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors, it offers fully variable all-wheel drive. The output from the powertrain is 550 kW (750 horsepower). The flat underfloor battery has a usable capacity of around 80 kWh, producing an NEDC range of over 500 kilometres (according to EPA: over 200 miles). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155mph).

The fast-charging function is also convenient: thanks to DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes, enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres (62 miles).
