The Kościuszko monument in front of the White House was devastated

Last night, riots broke out at the White House. Protesters devastated, among others the statue of Tadeusz Kościuszko (*) located near the White House. The monument was painted over with anti-presidential graffiti.

According to the Polish portal, DoRzeczy, Poland's ambassador to the United States, Piotr Wilczek, responded to this on Twitter:  
"I am disgusted and appalled by the acts of vandalism committed against the statue of Thaddeus Kościuszko in DC, a hero who fought for the independence of both the US and Poland. I implore @WhiteHouse & @NatlParkService to quickly restore the statue to its original state" 
 - he wrote.

I hope that our Polish-American readers with voting rights, American citizens, will draw conclusions from this and will punish the political party (the so-called Democrats) which quietly supports these "protests" in the next election. They do that because this crisis, just as the pandemic, may help them recapture the presidency. 

Let's watch today's news, I wonder how long Joe Biden will need to condemn this act and whether he will.

Andrew Thaddeus Bonaventure Kosciuszko (1746 –1817) was a Polish military engineer, statesman, and military leader who became a national hero in Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, and the United States. He fought in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth's struggles against Russia and Prussia, and on the US side in the American Revolutionary War. As Supreme Commander of the Polish National Armed Forces, he led the 1794 Kościuszko Uprising. 
He served as a colonel in the Continental Army.
An accomplished military architect, he designed and oversaw the construction of state-of-the-art fortifications, including those at West Point, New York. In 1783, in recognition of his services, the Continental Congress promoted him to brigadier general. - Wikipedia
