Congratulations, fuckwads. You’ve just destroyed another monument representing lives you supposedly value over everyone else’s.
A statue of famed black abolitionist Frederick Douglass was destroyed at Maplewood Park in Rochester, New York, over the weekend, which comes on the anniversary of a notable speech that Douglass delivered at an Independence Day event in the city in 1852.
“The base and lower part of the statue was damaged, as was a finger on the statue’s left hand,” the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reported. “There is historical significance to the timing of the vandalism — though no one can now say whether the timing was mere happenstance — just as there is historical significance to the statue’s very location. The Maplewood Park location includes Kelsey’s Landing, where Douglass, Harriet Tubman, and others helped shuttle slaves to safety along the Underground Railroad.”
……The destruction of the statue comes as far-left rioters have destroyed numerous historical statues and monuments in recent weeks, including “statues of former Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ulysses S. Grant, and attempted to destroy the statue of former President Andrew Jackson before being stopped by law enforcement,” The Daily Wire reported. “Statues of the man who wrote “The Star-Spangled Banner,” a notable person from the Catholic church, and a Holocaust memorial have also been destroyed in recent days.”
The assholes also defaced a monument dedicated to a Black Union regiment that fought in the Civil War.
In Wisconsin, BLM retards tore down a statue of Col. Hans Christian Heg, an immigrant from Norway who died fighting for the Union against slavery.
The statue of Mattias Bladwin, an abolitionist who fought against slavery, was also defaced.
The BLM/antifa thugs are abject retards. The “woke” mob is hellbent on destroying history they know nothing about. They have what psychologists call a “conditioned response“. Indoctrinated radical lefties are triggered by symbols of “white privilege/supremacy” because their leaders told them so.
