Confederate statue toppler has press conference to gloat, cops promptly arrest her proud behind!

Perhaps law and order does still exit in America.

In a case that begs to be followed to its conclusion, a woman who admitted she was involved in the toppling of a Confederate statue in Durham, N.C., faces felony charges after being arrested.

…that she is a communist comes as no surprise in post-Obama America.

The Durham County Sheriff’s Office has arrested Takiya Thompson, 22, who has been charged with disorderly conduct by injury to a statue, damage to real property, participation in a riot with property damage in excess of $1,500 — and inciting others to riot where there is property damage in excess of $1,500, according to the New York Post.

The last two offenses are felonies that carry jail sentences of up to 25 months and 41 months, respectively, the newspaper reported.

Thompson, a student at N.C. Central University, is a member of the radical Workers World Party, according to The Post — WWP is a self-described “revolutionary Marxist-Leninist party dedicated to organizing and fighting for a socialist revolution in the United States.”

Suddenly, the statue of mass murderer, and former Soviet ruler, Vladimir Lenin, that stands in Seattle takes on a whole new perspective.

Thompson said at a press conference that she was “tired of white supremacy keeping its foot on my neck.” Spoken like a true proletariat, she added, “The people decided to take matters into our own hands and remove the statue.”

“We are tired of waiting on politicians who could have voted to remove the white supremacist statues years ago,” she said. “But they failed to act. So we acted.”

And then the city of Durham acted, arresting the radical activist shortly thereafter.

Thompson reportedly confessed to climbing the monument and aiding in its removal after being identified through cellphone video. Police are looking at footage to identify those who took part in bringing the statue down. Officials expect additional arrests.

It remains to be seen if the arrest is a publicity play by local officials to feign holding lawbreakers accountable, or if the arrests will result in convictions.

For now, Durham County Sheriff Michael D. Andrews is saying all the right things.

“No one is getting away with this,” he told local TV station WNCN.
