In light of the recent defacing of the William McKinley Statue, the NO on Measure M group would like to make a statement to the public to be clear where we stand. We did not take part of nor were we aware of the vandalism that was done to the statue on October 16th, 2018. Although we are working to get the statue removed we are concerned that someone has defaced the statue in order to influence the election outcome. Despite this, we are still confident that the community will not be distracted by this act of vandalism and make the right choice on November 6th. Remember, vote NO on Measure M to continue the removal process of the McKinley Statue in the Arcata Plaza. Learn more about the statue and its history at or



  • Too late! Your attack on the statue has caused me to change my vote from NO to YES. I encourage everybody else to do the same!!

    • whoever “Your” is had a $50 chem sprayer and $20 bottle of mercuric acid laying around in their garage or shed. lots of straight up evil but simple conservative political tactics going on right now nation wide. I am willing to bet that Your team will require it to be restored and said I told you so if your team wins. or do you think some starving college kid spent their weeks budget on this?

    • Maybe they could put up a statue of Hillary. We could have fun with that!

    • In Malawi, some want to remove the statue of that racist Ghandi. I don’t know how anyone could say he is racist, but some there do. We do know John Muir, you know, that naturalist, is a racist, he called Blacks sambos and sambas, said they were lazy and dumb. When is one of his asshole statues coming down? Why would we believe any of his environmental shit when he cannot acknowledge Blacks as humans? What an asshole. Pull his statues down, and make sure every kid knows what a racist son of a bitch he is. The kids in our school do. Change the names of all the parks he is on, and junk his science.

    • Hope this adds some humanity to the discussion. Ida Mckinley, wife of president McKinley, knitted over 3000 pairs of socks for the poor. How gracious and thought full. How many liberals have made socks for the poor? Hillary, Maxine? This woman Ida is a saint, keeping the poor’s feet warm. Maybe when they take the statue down, they put socks in a basket for the poor. Keep the memory alive that way. And remember, 3000 pairs of socks is 6000 individual socks, wow, she really cared. McKinley was in office just about 40 months, so she was making socks everyday. Q 17

  • Right. Uh huh. You have no idea. Well, if it was acid, or paint thinner, look for a skinny hippie “activist” with ties to HSU. Likely an artist. La Raza or some such racist organization.

  • No, vote yes. 🌻

  • Be @#$%ing reasonable

    Ever since I moved to Humboldt 15 years ago and attended my first farmers market I was baffled by why there was a statue in the middle of the plaza. I did’t care who it was; McKinley, George Washington, Tom Sawyer or Walt Disney. Who it was didn’t bother me. What bothered me was how the band canopy was crunched in the middle of pedestrian traffic, dancing hippies and energetic kids. It’s like putting a concrete pylon in the middle of your reserved parking spot. A community that embraces community events on the plaza needs a more event friendly center piece. Not something that impedes foot traffic and creates a safety hazard. Move the statue to a corner or next to city hall. That seems to be the most reasonable and compromised answer.

  • No historical figure would pass their social justice warrior test. Not Ghandi or MLK. These people are dangerous.

    P.S. I want the statue removed because it’s ugly and has no real significance to the area.

  • I’m sure McKinley would be utterly disgusted if he would have known his statue would have to overlook the disgusting seen that it currently occupies. Please remove the statue and put it where it will be enjoyed and honored. Put up a statue of Stalin or Fidel so they can watch that Train wreak in progress.

  • your bs has got at least 20 percent of the blue walking away. you leave us no choice but to vote red across the board. stupid libterds.

    • your comment and the millions of similar comments daily have the largest demographic population ever coming out of the woodwork to vote in Nov. there’s 90 million of them that are of voting age now, which is why trump has already passed the buck on the loss of the house.

    • If you really thought that was true, why would you warn us? You wouldn’t. You’d be chortling to your fellow trumpites, ‘Heh, hope they never figure it out!!’
      You don’t have any ideals or principles or numbers on your side, only hate and voter suppression, like this pathetic and transparent attempt to demoralize progressive voters.

  • Lets not forget the Local Freemasons ( the same ones responsible for the Indian Island Massacre on Humboldt Bay where 80-100 elderly, women, and children were slaughtered byblocal freemasons) were the power structure in Humboldt from the 1850’s – 1990’s, it is the local Masonic Temple which installed this statue of one of their “Master Masons” ….. learn More : William McKinley as a member of the Knights Templar. It was during the Civil War that McKinley became interested in Masonry.

    William H. Armstrong described McKinley’s initial interest in Freemasonry. After the battle of Opequon, McKinley accompanied a surgeon to visit a Confederate soldier taken prisoner at the battle. McKinley stated:

    Almost as soon as we passed the guard, I noticed that the doctor shook hands with a number of Confederate prisoners. He also took from his pocket a roll of bills, and distributed all he had among them. Boy-like, I looked on in wonderment; I didn’t know what it meant. On the way back to our camp I asked him, “Did you know these men or ever see them before?” “No,” replied the doctor, “I never saw them before.” “But how did you know them ad why did you give them money?”, I asked. “They are Masons, and we Masons have ways of finding that out.” “But,” I persisted, “you gave them a lot of money, all you had about you. Do you ever expect to get it back?” “Well,” said the doctor, “if they are ever able to pay it back, they will. But it makes no difference to me. They are brother Masons in trouble, and I am only doing my duty.” I said to myself, “If that is Masonry I will take some of it myself.[1]


    This item is a postcard depicting the building where President McKinley was initiated into the Free Masons. The front reads: ” McKinley Made a Mason, Winchester, VA. On the upper floor of the center building shown above, Major William McKinley, afterward President of the United States, was initiated into the Masonic order, May 1-3, 1865. Though the local Masons were Confederates many Federals in Sheridan’s army, who were quartered in Winchester during the winter of 1864-65, were initiated by Hiram Lodge, which was organized in 1768. These Union initiates paid $4,400 in fees, and with this nucleus, the Winchester Masonic Temple was built. The white star shown on the picture is directly above a tablet marking the building. Published by Shenandoah Publishing House- Strasburg, Virginia.

    McKinley took the oath at Winchester, Virginia, on May 1-3, 1865. Upon leaving the Union Army, he re-joined the Masons as a member of the Knights Templar when he returned to Ohio. There, he continued to be an active Mason throughout the rest of his life. A listing of McKinley’s Masonic record follows. He was initiated an Entered Apprentice May 1, 1865. He then passed to the degree of fellow craft May 2nd, 1865, raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason, May 3, 1865 in Hiram Lodge, No. 21, F. & A.M., Winchester, Va. At the time of his death was a member of the Eagle Lodge, No. 431, Canton, Ohio. (Since the death of the late President, the name of Eagle Lodge has been changed to William McKinley Lodge, No. 431, F. & A.M. Advanced to the degree of Mark Master, Past Master, and Most Excellent Master, Dec. 27, 1883, and exalted to most Sublime Degree of Royal Arch Mason, Dec. 28, 1883, in Canton Chapter, No. 84, R.A.M. Received the illustrious Order of Red Cross, December 18, 1884. Created a Knight Templar, and made a Knight of Malta, December 23, 1884, in Canton Commandery, No. 38, K.T., Canton, Ohio.”

    • IMO, you are stuck in a rut. Not all masons were/are the same. There are some really great ones out there. But, you probably knew that already.

      • Take the Power Back

        Your right, 90% of all masons have absolutely no idea what the roots of the organization is. They will never be Master Masons: so they will learn all the degrees or have any true understanding of the cult. Most low level masons do not even realize that the masonic god is Baphomet. The initiates have no idea that Freemasonry is the worship of Baphomet.
        Masonic Quotes tell of Masonic Devil worship in their own words-

        “Lucifer, the Light-bearer ! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! It is he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble, sensual or selfish souls? Doubt it not!”
        Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma of the ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, p321, 19th Degree of Grand Pontiff

        Domenico Margiotta 0- 33rd degree Mason has written

        “Palladism is necessarily a luciferian rite. Its religion is Manichaean neo-gnostism, teaching that the divinity is dual and that lucifer is equal of Adonay, with lucifer the God of Light and Goodness struggling for humanity against Adonay the God of darkness and Evil.. Albert Pike had only specified and unveiled the dogmas of the high grades of all other masonries, for in no matter what rite, The Great architect of the Universe is not the God worshipped by Christians”

        Extract from ‘Masonry – beyond the light’ Wm.Schnoebelen former 32nd degree Mason

        “When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mystery of his craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands and before he may step onwards and upwards he must prove his ability to properly apply (this) energy.”

        ‘Lost Keys of Freemasonry’ page 48, Manley P Hall 33rd degree.

        General Albert Pike, Grand Commander, sovereign pontiff of universal freemasonry, giving instructions to the 23 supreme councils of the world.

        “That which we must say to the crowd is, we worship a god, but it is the god one adores without superstition. To you sovereign grand inspector general, we say this and you may repeat it to the brethren of the 32nd, 31st and 30th degrees – the Masonic religion should be by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the luciferian doctrine.

        If lucifer were not god, would Adonay (the God of the Christians) whose deeds prove cruelty, perfidy and hatred of man, barbarism and repulsion for science, would Adonay and His priests, calumniate Him?

        Yes, lucifer is god, and unfortunately Adonay is also God, for the eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only exist as two gods. darkness being necessary for light to serve as its foil, as the pedestal is necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive.

        Thus, the doctrine of Satanism is heresy, and the true and pure philosophical religion is the belief in lucifer, the equal of Adonay, but lucifer, god of light and god of good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the god of darkness and evil”

        Recorded by A.C. De La Rive, La Femme et L’enfant dans La Franc-Maconnerie Universelle, Page 588. Cited from ‘The question of freemasonry, ( 2nd edition 1986 by Edward Decker pp12-14)

        NOTE: The above statement by Albert Pike is often challenged on the basis of the so called ‘Leo Taxil’ hoax. Please read here.

        Interestingly the above ‘luciferian’ doctrine gets verified from an unusual source. Dr. Lester Sumrall in volume two of his teaching manuals ‘Demonology and Deliverance’, (ISBN 0-937580-64-3) uses question and answer editorial to recount the life story and demonic spiritual experiences of Arlindo D. Olivera a prominent witch doctor in Brazil who was converted to Christ. (pages 52 – 58)

        On Page 57 Dr Sumrall asks

        ‘Arlindo, did you ever meet satan, the chief of all demons?’

        Arlindo replies ..

        ‘Yes……when he manifested I sang Lucifer’s hymn. Some of the words were

        He is the king of Hell

        He has two heads

        One is the king if hell

        The other is Jesus of Nazareth

        One works for good, and one works for bad

        Compare this with the doctrine espoused above and you see there is the same demonic ‘theology’ running through both. (If this was a hoax or a joke as Mason’s would have us believe then Leo Taxil demonstrated a remarkable understanding of the spirit realm)

        ..the absolute can only exist as two gods

        ..lucifer, god of light and god of good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the god of darkness and evil”

        • Thank you for sharing the discoveries into this subject. To date, the biggest impression made upon me, is that the ‘they’ believe what they believe, and the ‘we’ better believe that the they believe it even if the we don’t believe it.
          Satan’s biggest tool is deception.
          I found a short 4 minute video that echos what you said, for those who wish to know what the hell we’re discussing here.
          The bible can be understood mathematically, using Gematria, for those with a more complex mathematically inclined mind.

          As for me, I’ll stick to the bible that declares there is only 1 God, the Alpha and the Omega, the God of all living things. (which is why the others cry out for depopulation). Our creator. The creator of light, space, time and life.

          The Nephilim (the canibals that Lucifarians call ‘Christians’ lol), are in the Genesis 6 and other books, for those interested in learning more.

          Thank you for pointing out that it is the highest levels that are the Lucifarians, not so much the lower levels.
          We must all strive to stop lumping all into boxes of all.

    • every single one of us has some kind of skeleton in the closet. if you examine HUMAN history you will learn that all races have committed some wrongs, get over yourself and stop with the divisiveness

  • Take the Power Back

    I think taking this statue down is symbolic of returning the power structure of Humboldt back to the people of Humboldt. For too long the power structure was held in local “Secret Societies” like the local Masonic Temple Cult. The local masons represented the “big players in Humboldt” from the bankers and the corporate Timber companies to the Judges and Local Sheriffs, attorneys, large business owners etc. They held the power structure and the counties decisions were first decided in the Masonic Temple Cult where plans were laid of who would go to jail, who would get a loan, who would be set up, it was all rigged for about 140 years, local indian massacres were perpetrated by Huestis Family, masons, Hagan, also a mason etc.
    The massacre at Indian Island is tied directly to the Eureka Freemasons and local ranchers and their henchmen. The entire West Coast timber industry and destriction of our Redwood Forest all instigated and made possible by Masonic Rule, from the Eureka Masonic Temple Cult. The 50+ years of local persecution and abuse of our “back to the land movement” as well as cannabis farmers persecution all came from this good old boy Masonic Temple network decisions, back to the landers and cannabis farmers have always been a threat to these esoteric cult clubs like the freemasons.
    Even the chinese being run out of Humboldt had its planning in the local masonic temple according to reports the organizers were all Masons! Now in the 1940s there were members of the Masonic Temple Cult who were still alive who in their lifetime knew other masons who were responsible for hunting indians, the time order of the local Genocide to today is only 4 or 5 generations, and old masonic beliefs, traditions and power live a long time which is why we still have Masonic men who are still trying to retain the local masonic power structure, it is paramount that this statue is removed one way or another. We need to do what needs to be done even if it means civil disobedience against the statue and local masonic power structure.

    • You forgot the CFPB, never forget the old before Mulvaney CFPB.

      Wouldn’t a nice cage (jail cell) around the statue be more awarding? We can build cheap paper mache’ statues of all the corrupt and crooked politicians and jail those too. That would be a marvelous plaza! People would come from all over the world to see this great exhibit.

      Start with the CFPB group, who was the deciding factor for years on whether or not you got a job, a rental, a mortgage, or a jail cell. Their slush funds (from fines) is rumored to be 99% donated to the leftists orgs that burn down our cities and eventually the reservations that don’t bow to their nwo agenda.

      Know your history to know your present to know your future. Those who think that ‘their’ party is correct for destroying another ‘party’ aren’t facing the realities of what’s to come for their ‘party’ as soon as the useful idiots of their ‘party’ are no longer needed.

      Take back the power of self, by removing oneself from the ‘victimized’ roller coaster that is so easily manipulated by others for nefarious means.

      BTW, there’s always more to any story than what meets a narrative.

  • We all agree that it was hateful and it was political. The who is up to the police to investigate. I’m sure there are many cams to go through yet.
    I hope the vandals are caught and their lunch monies taken from them.

  • Not a big statue person. Much biggwer issues , but I have to debate it in class. Anyway, I liked “Alternative 2 in the EIR. If it were developed and executed after sufficient public participation (secular or tribal) transpires. I feel that MOST people (maybe not that Dong Trumpterd idiot that called everyone wanting the statue removed “libterds” without any evidence of their political affiliation(s)) would be okay with that?

    Alternative #2 – Interpretive Signage. Similar to the No Project Alternative, this alternative would leave the statue in place. This alternative would place interpretive signage at the Plaza describing the circumstances and reasoning behind the statue’s stigma. While this alternative meets some, but not all, of the project objectives, this alternative further addresses the objectives than the No Project Alternative in that it would provide historical context and education around the history of the City, the statue, and the impact of settlement on the Wiyot and other indigenous people.
