The USA may be on the brink of being overrun by communists thanks to the likes of Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and a media that promotes them but Karl Marx isn’t quite as popular overseas as his insane and dangerous ideas continue to live on.
The grave of the father of a satanic ideology that has resulted in untold millions of dead bodies and even more forced to live under repression and slavery has been vandalized in what is being described as a hammer attack.
Karl Marx's memorial has been vandalised! It looks like someone has had a go at it with a hammer. It's a Grade I-listed monument; this is no way to treat our heritage. @MarxLibrary @HeritageCrime We will repair as far as possible. pic.twitter.com/6nY2TJOjw7

Via The Guardian, “Karl Marx’s London grave vandalised in suspected hammer attack”:
The tomb of Karl Marx at London’s Highgate cemetery has been vandalised in a targeted attack that means the Grade I-listed monument will “never be the same again”.
The suspected vandal damaged a marble plaque which was taken from Marx’s original 1883 gravestone and incorporated into the 1954 monument.
Images of the defaced memorial, which attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year, show what appears to be damage done by a hammer to the lettering of Marx’s name and the marble on which it is mounted.
Ian Dungavell, the chief executive of the Friends of Highgate Cemetery Trust, condemned the attack as “an appalling thing to do” and a “particularly inarticulate form of political comment”, warning that the tomb would be permanently scarred.
The police were called to the scene on Monday afternoon.
Dungavell said no other graves at the cemetery had been damaged in the attack.
Speaking to the Guardian he said: “We think it was deliberately targeted against Karl Marx. It was not random. You can see from the photograph that the person has really done their best to obliterate Karl Marx’s name.”
Dungavell condemned the attack as a “particularly selfish act”.
The attack on Marx’s final resting place comes at a time when the increasingly fascistic and repressive U.K. has identified hammers as being potential tools for terrorism.
