?TEAR DOWN PRESIDENT LINCOLN STATUE IN WASHINGTON DC ?— Benny (@bennyjohnson) June 23, 2020
Hundreds of (mostly white) protesters have shown up.
Why? Because this statue honoring the signing of the emancipation proclamation is “racist.”
Where did the statue come from? It was paid for and erected by freed slaves. pic.twitter.com/SL1OA8IaMY
I will just say this.
While the bastard deserves it for unleashing this, we aren’t fighting the last war in 2020. It is beyond clear this has devolved into an attack on every symbol of White America. The woke mob is now attacking every symbol of White America from Christopher Columbus to Jesus Christ.
Note: I told you anti-racism was going to plunge this country into a major new Crisis.
