Remember when radical leftists started tearing down “Confederate statues” and Republican politicians did nothing to stop it because they were afraid of looking “racist”?
Well, now a statue of President Abraham Lincoln and a freed slave has been removed from Boston Park for being “offensive.”
You heard that right. We let them tear down the statues of slaveholding Democrats, and now they are tearing down statues of the man who freed the slaves.
The ‘Emancipation Group’ statue, which was erected in 1879, was moved to a storage facility, according to the City of Boston.
The controversial Emancipation Group statue in Boston has been taken down. In June, an online petition called for the statue's removal and in July, the Boston Art Commission voted unanimously to take it down. |

In June 2020, far-left Boston city officials voted unanimously to remove the statue by the end of 2020.
According to an official statement from the city, “The decision for removal acknowledged the statue’s role in perpetuating harmful prejudices and obscuring the role of Black Americans in shaping the nation’s freedoms.”
So…celebrating the freedom of Black Americans is somehow “perpetuating harmful prejudices.”
This is why you can never ever give these radical Democrat communists ANYTHING they want.
Nothing is ever good enough for them.
If you give them an inch, they take a mile.
