Proof that the Statue Stealers are anarchists, not activists

On July 4th, Independence day, vandals ripped a  statue from its base in Rochester, N.Y. The statue was of none other than Fredrick Douglas and the date was on the anniversary of one of his most famous speeches, which he delivered in that city in 1852.

So who was Fredrick Douglas?

He was an abolitionist. And if that in itself is not enough to convince you that the practice of destroying statues has left it’s original message of “Black Lives Matter” than consider this:

 

Fredrick Douglas was a black abolitionist.

 

This outrageous act of removing his statue proves beyond any doubt that those who are removing the statues are merely anarchists, not activists

 

 

Save the Statues

On Tuesday, I interviewed a woman named Barbara who protesting in front of the Andrew Jackson Statue on the Historical Independence Square

Here are her answers to some of the questions I had:

Question: We know that those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Some have suggested that removing the statues will erase history. Others say it’s a shameful time in history that needs to be forgotten. What do you think about the cities around America removing all of these statues?

“The statues are commissioned public art and do not belong to any one group.  Yes, they have historical value.  Taking them down does not change the past.  What about the families of the artists that created the statues?”

Question: Some people think that it is racist to display these statues. What do you have to say on that?

“Displays of statues are not a form of racism.  Many of the statues depict an event.  Some educate people on social mores of the era.  No one is forced to look at them.

Question: We know that there have been very ANTI- racist statutes which have been removed, such as a famous abolitionist as well as an Abe Lincoln statue depicting the Emancipation proclamation. Do you think these vandals have a real knowledge of history?

“No.  I do not believe the people tearing down the statues have real knowledge of history.  most of the mobs destroying public property, don’t appear to be very culturally aware.  They are just blindly vandalizing and destroying”.

Question: In one of these acts of vandalism, protesters put a rainbow wig on the statue. When we instance like this, where there is aswastika or a  hammer and sickle being spray painted on this statue does it seem to you that some of these protesters may have an agenda other than the Black Lives Matter message?

“Absolutely!  None of these statues, fountains, streets had anyone objecting to them until a particular political party used the leftist media to inflame and instigate.  BLM, George Soros and company and anti-American terrorists are behind all of it.
ITS POLITICAL!!”

 

Update: Here is a statement I received this morning from Mayor Eileen Weir:

I am researching the statue provenance. I believe it was a gift to the County therefore County property but am verifying this. Most gifts come with provisions for their maintenance and removal.

Wisconsin crowd pulls down statue of abolitionist who died fighting slavery

 

The stories are endless….misguided protestors who are protesting…what? Anti-slavery heroes?

“The Global News” reports : “Crowds outside the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison tore down two statues and attacked a state senator amid protests following the arrest of a Black man who shouted at restaurant customers through a megaphone while carrying a baseball bat”.

The “offensive” statue was one of none other than Hans Christian Heg, and in case you don’t know, Heg was a Colonel who was solidly against slavery,

Wikkipedia says that Heg was a Norwegian American abolitionist, journalist, anti-slavery activist, politician and soldier, best known for leading the Scandinavian 15th Wisconsin Volunteer Regiment on the Union side in the American Civil War. He died of the wounds he received at the Battle of Chickamauga

A biographer wrote  ““Slavery was abhorrent to him, and the sincerity of his views was later to be proved by the supreme sacrifice,” according to The Wisconsin magazine of history: Volume 4, number 2, December 1920.

“Save Our Statues!”

All over America, citizens are rising up to declare an end to the systematic decimation of our countries statues.

You can make a difference my contacting your particular city’s Mayor, and your States Governor about the issue.

Here in my town, I happened upon a woman around noon today, all by herself, with a sign reading “Save our Statues”.

This article is live and developing. I just jumped out of the jeep to interview her when a man from the House of Representatives, in my state, approached me (talk about timing).

After speaking with him, I learned that there are many MANY citizens who are disgusted with the systematic beheading and destruction of statues portraying our founding fathers, under a fake agenda of racism (read the next post). This had got to stop!

Reader, contact the mayor of your town, or any town where this is going on. Let your voice be heard! Together we can make a difference.

Here is a sample letter you can use:

Dear (your mayor, governor, or representatives name):

I stand against the lawless act of the destruction of our town (or states) statues. It’s time that the law is upheld and that criminals, with misguided agenda, are not allowed to deface public property under the guise of anti-racism. Many of our founding fathers were good people. Furthermore, some of the statues being destroyed actually depict righteous acts like the Emancipation Proclamation. The majority of Americans do NOT want our statues destroyed and our counties renamed. Please do not bow to anarchists who have no regard for the law. It’s time to honor the will of the people and protect our nation and our statues.

Sincerley,

Your name

Copy this text, ammend with your name. Use the part in bold which is appropriate for the area of concern. Paste this into the body of your message. In many cases, you must provide your contact information. It’s time to take a stand.

 

 

 

Leave the “Emancipation Proclamation” Statue Alone!

The Emancipation Memorial in Lincoln Park, Washington, D.C., June 19, 2020.

So, just to make it absolutely clear: The statue in question here owes its existence not to “rich white people,” but to newly freed slaves, the first of whom contributed to it her first-ever earnings as a free citizen of the United States. To tear it down would be a grave insult to the memory of those who created it.

It deserves to stand forever, a silent monument whose history and character speak louder than anyone who would destroy it.
In a quiet, tree-lined area about a mile from the U.S. Capitol building, a statue has stood since 1876. Unveiled eleven years after Abraham Lincoln’s death, it depicts the 16th president holding the Emancipation Proclamation as a freed slave kneels below, his bonds being severed. Congress originally named the site of the statue, called the Freedman’s Memorial on the plaque affixed to it, Lincoln Square, making it “the first site to bear the name of the martyred president,” according to the National Park Service. It is also known as the Emancipation Memorial.Lincoln Park’s typical quiet was broken on Tuesday by an increasingly familiar sight: a crowd seeking a statue to tear down. The more such groups deviate further from anything resembling legitimate protest against the unjust death of George Floyd, the more one questions their historical literacy. Indeed, it seems clear at this point that any old-looking statue will do: Figures of everyone from the Union general and racially progressive president Ulysses S. Grant to the abolitionist Hans Christian Heg have gotten the treatment. But if the protesters knew anything about the history and a character of the Emancipation Memorial, they would abandon their stated promise to tear the statue down.The man who appears to be leading these efforts on the ground  declared:

“We are going to show up and wake these rich white people up,” he said while standing in front of the statue.

Had he turned around, he might have noticed a plaque at the statue’s base that reads as follows:

 

In grateful memory of Abraham Lincoln, this monument was erected by the Western Sanitary Commission of Saint Louis MO: With funds contributed solely by emancipated citizens of the United States, declared free by his proclamation, January 1st A.D. 1863. The first contribution of five dollars was made by Charlotte Scott, a freed woman of Virginia, being her first earnings in freedom and consecrated by her succession and request on the day she heard of President Lincoln’s death to build a monument to his memory.

So, just to make it absolutely clear: The statue in question here owes its existence not to “rich white people,” but to newly freed slaves, the first of whom contributed to it her first-ever earnings as a free citizen of the United States. To tear it down would be a grave insult to the memory of those who created it.

TRUMP’S NEW PRESS SECRETARY DESTROYS FAKE NEWS MEDIA WITH PRECISION!

When a reporter asked the press secretary if she would take back her comments made on Fox Business News, where she implied that because of President Trump, “we will not see diseases like the coronavirus come here,” she clarified her statement and then turned the tables on them.

“Well first let me note, I was asked a question on Fox Business about the President’s travel restrictions. I noted what was the intent behind those travel restrictions which is, we will not see the coronavirus come here, we will not see terrorism come here, referring to an earlier set of travel restrictions,” McEnany’s responded.

So apparently, McEnany wasn’t predicting “we won’t have that come here” but rather, her tone was more one of “we won’t” as in , “we won’t have any of that.

But this “gotcha” question didn’t even phase McEnany, who quickly retorted “I guess I would turn the question back on the media and ask similar questions. Does Vox want to take back that they proclaimed that the coronavirus would not be a deadly pandemic.?Does the Washington Post want to take back that they told Americans to get a grip, the flu is bigger than the coronavirus? Does the Washington Post likewise want to take back that our brains are causing us to exaggerate the threat of the coronavirus? Does the New York Times want to take back that fear of the virus may be spreading faster than the virus itself? Does NPR want to take back that the flu was a much bigger threat than the coronavirus? And finally once again the Washington Post, would they like to take back that the government should not respond aggressively to the coronavirus? I’ll leave you with those questions and maybe you’ll have some answers in a few days. Thank you very much.”

The Media outlets McEnany mentioned,  are the same ones who regularly chide the President for not “doing more”  in the beginning.  And yet, the articles cited are from that same time period.  Yes, you read that right.  The articles McEnany mentioned, articles that discouraged the idea of  us taking severe action and prevention, are from the same time period in which these media outlets  NOW allege that the President did not take enough action in the beginning.

In an effort to downplay the president’s earlier preventative measure of a travel ban,  the media repeatably  tries to coerce the President and his representatives to concede that not enough  action was taken in the period between ordering the travel ban and his emergency declaration.

By McEnany  citing her critics articles from that same time period, the media is left having to admit to making light of the coronavirus.

All of this opens up the argument that the President’s travel ban may have been less effective due to the media downplaying the coronavirus.

“Worried About Catching The New Coronavirus? In The U.S., Flu Is A Bigger Threat”

headline of article by Lennie Bernstein

 


The New York Times

“Coronavirus is starting to freak me out — not the illness itself but the amped-up, ill-considered way our frightened world might respond to it.

“Yes, the novel virus appears to be spreading quickly at the outbreak’s epicenter in the Chinese province of Hubei, but after a late start the Chinese government is now imposing unprecedented measures to contain it. As the World Health Organization declared last week, it remains too early to call the outbreak a global public health emergency.

 

“So far, the Wuhan coronavirus is not much more frightening than the outbreaks of other recent coronaviruses like SARS in 2003 or MERS in 2012, each of which killed fewer than a thousand people around the world. The new virus’s death toll has just exceeded 130; for context, according to the CDC, about 15 million Americans have been sickened by the seasonal flu so far in the 2019-2020 flu season, and 8,200 have died from it. (The flu kills between 300,000 and 650,000 people around the world annually.)

“What worries me more than the new disease is that fear of a vague and terrifying new illness might spiral into panic, and that it might be used to justify unnecessarily severe limits on movement and on civil liberties, especially of racial and religious minorities around the world”.  Farhad Manjoo,  The New York Times

How the Impeachment Process will help Trump

It’s now apparent that what Nancy Pelosi was really after all along was to smear President Trump’s good name. She claims that history will show, forever, that President Trump was impeached. Wait a minute though…this assertion is false on two counts. First, President Trump’s so called impeachment is invalid; it was set declared under a format that did not use due process, so it’s not valid. The whole meeting was planned in secret, and Republicans were not allowed to ask questions. As one analyst put it, any attorney operating this way would be swiftly debarred. So constitution and proper judicial protocol was not followed at all.

The second reason that Pelosi’s Machiavellian claim that Trump is ruined by this is none other than Former Democratic POTUS President Clinton. Hailed as a hero by his own, you’ll never hear any Dem declare that Clinton is a scum bag, which makes her ghoulish delight in Trump’s supposedly marred image, seem laughable. What a double standard! But the Dem’s have always been so great at double standards. The most comical claim yet is that they would be sending the articles of impeachment to a kangaroo court if it were to go to the senate.

Apparently, Gaslighting and Projection are the Dems favored strategies, if you can call it that.
