Frederick Douglass statue removed at Rochester park https://t.co/NZgPq1RNgm— FOX2now (@FOX2now) July 5, 2020
The woke mob had already torn down monuments of Ulysses S. Grant, Abraham Lincoln, Hans Christian Heg and vandalized the 54th Massachusetts Memorial on Boston Common.
“On the same weekend in which famed abolitionist Frederick Douglass 168 years ago delivered one of his most historically resonant speeches, a statue of Douglass was toppled from its base and left near the Genesee River gorge.
Located in Maplewood Park, the statue “had been placed over the fence to the gorge and was leaning against the fence” on the river side, according to a statement from Rochester police. The statue was left about 50 feet from its pedestal.
The base and lower part of the statue was damaged, as was a finger on the statue’s left hand. …
Across the United States, Douglass’ July 5, 1852 speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July,” has been shared widely on social media and elsewhere as a reminder of the country’s legacy of slavery and racism. …”
The historically ignorant little Maoists tore down a monument of Frederick Douglass on the anniversary of his most famous speech and attempted to chunk him in the Genesee River.
“NEW ALBANY — A sculpture depicting Lucy Higgs Nichols fleeing slavery with her infant daughter was vandalized early Friday morning — a year to the day after the statue was dedicated on the grounds of the historic Second Baptist Church. …
According to New Albany Police Chief Todd Bailey, someone painted the faces on the statue red and painted “BLM” on it. He said the case is under investigation, and no arrests had been made as of Friday afternoon. …
Located at 300 E. Main St. in downtown New Albany, the church is noted for being a link in the Underground Railroad. A massive restoration project has been ongoing at the church, which included the addition of the sculpture of Nichols and her daughter, Mona.
In 1862, Nichols escaped slavery from a farm in Tennessee and later joined the Union 23rd Regiment of New Albany.
She worked as a nurse until the end of the Civil War and was named an honorary member of the Grand Army of the Republic. …”
The morons also vandalized this monument of a runaway slave and wrote “BLM” on it:
Yeah, keep telling us this is a great moral crusade against “racism.”
