Thorfinn Karlsefni Statue Vandalized in Philadelphia, PA: Reds openly take credit

This story is a bit involved so try to bare with us on this one.

On Sunday 10/5/08 Daryle Lamont Jenkins of the One Peoples Project posted an article on his website openly calling for direct "action" (violence) against a Leif Erickson Day Celebration scheduled to take place at the Thorfinn Karlsefni Statue on 10/11/08 in Philadelphia, PA.

On the morning of the event a series of fliers available for download from the OPP website were plastered along the street where the event was taking place. (Click here to view flier)

The fliers were promptly removed within hours of their posting by several organizers of the event.

At approximately 11:30am Daryle Lamont Jenkins was spotted near the Thorfinn Karlsefni statue with two unknown white males and a black female believed to be named Kaba. (*Note: The other people in the photo are there for the boat race that was also taking place in the area ,they are not affiliated with Antifa)

Somewhere between 12:30-1:00pm the above four individuals left the Thorfinn Karlsefni statue and had this to say about the event while the Leif Erikson celebration went on as scheduled:

Philly Indy Media
One Peoples Project

A few weeks later a Philadelphia newspaper called the Daily news published a lengthy and fairly balanced spread on the Leif Erikson Day event including a full-front page photo of the event along, an interview with Keystone United organizer Keith Carney and an extremely hostile interview with a leading Philadelphia Black Panther.

Now, within days of the medias coverage of this event, which Antifa had failed to disrupt much like last year, an article claiming responsibility for the desecration of the Thorfinn Karlsefni statue appeared on the Philadelphia Indy Media site, a site frequently used by Daryle Lamont Jenkins and other "Anti-fascists".

The article was also re-reposted on the One Peoples Project website. And much like the original OPP post regarding the Leif Erickson celebration it projected an extremely false and hostile (hateful) view of the viking voyages. But these views, showing their extreme contempt for European culture and history, are nothing new to Antifa and reflect the true nature and motivation behind all of their activities.

The individuals or actual group(s) responsible for vandalizing the statue are still unknown to us at this time. And while we are unable give specifics it is highly probable that members of the Philadelphia/NJ ARA along with Daryle Lamont Jenkins of the One Peoples Project are directly involved with this to some degree, or have knowledge of them, given their track record for passive aggressive tactics and vandalism.
