美国林肯纪念堂遭涂鸦

2017-08-17    来源:爱语吧    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

美国东部时间15日,位于美国首都华盛顿的林肯纪念堂前的柱子上被人喷涂油漆,这一事件距离弗吉尼亚州爆发的种族主义暴力骚乱事件不足一周。

WASHINGTON - The Lincoln Memorial in the US capital was spray painted with expletive graffiti that was discovered on Tuesday, days after violence broke out in Charlottesville, Virginia, over an American Civil War-era monument.
华盛顿—美国弗吉尼亚州夏洛茨维尔发生种族骚乱几天后,本周周二,位于美国华盛顿用来纪念美国内战的林肯纪念堂前的柱子上被人用油漆喷涂了脏话。

The graffiti appeared to read "fuck law" spray painted in red on a column of the memorial to Abraham Lincoln, the American president who signed the Emancipation Proclamation freeing slaves in the United States.
林肯纪念堂前柱子上红色油漆的涂鸦看上去似乎是一句咒骂法律的脏话(“去他的法律”)。纪念堂是为了纪念美国总统亚伯拉罕·林肯而建,林肯曾签署《解放宣言》,废除了美国的黑人奴隶制度。

The National Park Service said in a statement that it was removing the graffiti from the monument and a Smithsonian Institution directional sign blocks away that was also vandalized with spray paint.
美国国家公园管理局在一份声明中称他们正在清理柱子上的涂鸦,此外,几条街区外的史密森学会的指示牌也被人喷漆破坏。

The US Park Police said in the statement that they were investigating.
美国公园警方在声明中称调查正在进行。

The graffiti marks the second time this year that the Lincoln Memorial, one of Washington, DC’s major tourist attractions, was defaced.
这是位于华盛顿市中心的重要景点林肯纪念堂今年第二次遭人涂鸦。

In February, the monument to Lincoln, the Washington Monument and the World War II Memorial, were vandalized with a marker pen.
今年二月,林肯纪念堂、华盛顿纪念碑和二战纪念碑被人用记号笔涂鸦破坏。

The Park Service said that a monument preservation crew was removing the graffiti at the Lincoln Memorial on Tuesday using a mild paint stripper.
公园服务处表示,周二时纪念碑保护人员在使用一种温和的不会破坏石柱的油漆剥离剂来清理涂鸦。

A Park Service photo showed the graffiti on a column of the memorial, and Twitter erupted with opinions on whether it said "law" or "Islam."
公园服务处发布了关于石柱上涂鸦的照片,推特上爆发了关于上面的字是“法律”还是“伊斯兰”的讨论。

"Could the person who defaced the Lincoln Memorial please come back and write more clearly so we know who to be mad at," comedy writer Chase Mitchell wrote on Twitter.
喜剧作家Chase Mitchell在推特上写到:“请在林肯纪念堂涂鸦的大兄弟回来再写得清楚一点,这样我们就知道该去冲谁发火了。”

Lincoln was president during the 1861-65 Civil War, and the vandalism was found days after deadly weekend violence at a far-right rally at a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia.
林肯在1861—1865南北战争期间任美国总统。这一破坏行为(即林肯纪念堂涂鸦)仅发生在弗吉尼亚州夏洛茨维尔暴力事件数天之后。该事件由最初的反对迁移美国内战期间南方联盟将军罗伯特·李雕像的极右翼集会发展成为周末的暴力流血事件。

The unrest has intensified a national debate over whether monuments to the pro-slavery Confederacy are symbols of heritage or hate.
这场骚乱引发了全国范围内的争论,即为支持奴隶制的南方联盟而建的纪念碑究竟象征着历史传统还是种族仇恨。
