Made to order for whenever the national guard(s) and whatever federal riot squads are ready in DC to trash BLM demonstrators. Heck, the RWNJs could recruit anti-freemasonists to take this sculpture down, once the NPS puts it back up. Even the RCP has led a street demo against this sculpture.

Trump personally called Interior Department Secretary David Bernhardt and asked that the Park Service put back up a statue of Albert Pike, a Confederate general.
President Trump personally requested that a toppled statue in Washington, D.C., be restored after it was torn down late last week, according to multiple reports, as he digs in in his fight to protect controversial monuments that he deems important to the nation's “heritage.”
The White House declined to comment on the record.
“It is the intent of the National Park Service to mitigate any damage to any statue, monument, or memorial damaged due to any criminal activity,” Alexandra Picavet, acting chief spokesperson for the National Park Service, said in a statement when asked whether Trump had reached out to Bernhardt about the Pike statue.
