“I will say right now he has a mind of a 13-year-old because one of the major impacts was his communication, his understanding, and problem-solving”
Last spring when the radical left was toppling historic statues around the country, a man named Chris Green was severely injured when a falling statue landed on his head in Virginia.
Green suffered a coma and now has had to relearn to walk and eat. He lost sight in one eye, hearing in one ear, and saddest of all, can no longer remember the childhood of his own kids.
No one has been held accountable for this.
13 News Now in Virginia reports:
Chris’ Journey | One year after a Confederate statue hit Chris Green in Portsmouth, he fights his way back from a traumatic brain injury.
One year since protesters pulled down part of the Confederate monument n Olde Towne, hitting Chris Green, the husband and father continues to fight his way back from the severe brain injury he suffered.
For the first time since the incident on June 10, 2020, his wife, Tonieh Brisbane-Green, shared video of his journey. In that video, you can see Chris up and walking.
“Through continued rehab, my husband has slowly started to gain back his independence,” said Brisbane-Green, who explained that Green has weekly therapy sessions.
“I will say right now he has a mind of a 13-year-old because one of the major impacts was his communication, his understanding, and problem-solving,” said Brisbane-Green. “He doesn’t have that capacity like he used to, it causes me to make all the decisions best for him, our kids, and our family.”
Chris is blind in one eye and lost his hearing in one ear, but he’s making progress. He’s learning how to eat and walk again, and his speech is slowly coming back.
The caring dad whom Brisbane-Green and her two young children remember still is there, but memory loss is one of his biggest challenges. He can’t remember what his marriage was like before the incident, and the memories of his kids growing up are gone.
Here’s a short video report:
Even though Green was at the protest, my heart breaks for him and his family. The story also makes me even more angry at the people who fueled this hysteria.
At the height of this madness last spring, the magazine ‘Popular Mechanics’ published an article on how to more effectively pull down statues.
A professor at John Jay College offered similar advice.
I’m a professor who studies the deliberate destruction of cultural heritage and I just have to say… use chain instead of rope and it’ll go faster. https://t.co/RH3WVJm8RX

Where is Black Lives Matter with their millions in donated cash? Where are the Democrats who stood by while their mobs of foot soldiers did this? Where are the media outlets who covered this as a form of social justice? Where are the congressional hearings to determine who is responsible?
Supporters of the Green family have set up a GoFundMe.
Perhaps they should use the money to hire a very good lawyer and sue some people into oblivion.
