City Of Boston Decides To Chuck Statue Of Lincoln Emancipating Slave

Published

on

The Boston public arts commission voted unanimously over the summer to remove a statue located in the city’s downtown area that featured President Abraham Lincoln emancipating a slave.

It has now come down.

Folks, the left is desperate to erase the history of our great nation, all in the name of political correctness. At first, this was all about pulling down statues of Confederate soldiers and generals. Now they’ve come for the heroes too.

They are rewriting our past so they can influence the present in order to gain control of the future.

“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,” the commission said in a statement.

Boston’s Democratic Mayor Martin Walsh praised the commission’s decision over the summer, saying, “After engaging in a public process, it’s clear that residents and visitors to Boston have been uncomfortable with this statue, and its reductive representation of the Black man’s role in the abolitionist movement. I fully support the Boston Art Commission’s decision for removal and thank them for their work.”

“The Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture and the Boston Art Commission began a public engagement process over the summer that led to the decision to remove and relocate the Emancipation Group statue. … As expressed by so many during the public process this year, we fully agree that the statue should be relocated to a new publicly accessible location where its history and context can be better explained. The statue is being stored in a controlled storage facility in South Boston until a new location is determined,” a spokesperson for the mayor’s office said.

What’s ironic about this is that this statue is a copy of one that was originally erected in Washington, D.C., in 1876, during a ceremony that featured a little speech from Frederick Douglass.

So why in the world did these folks want to remove this statue? Well, with all of the civil unrest that’s happened this year due to the death of George Floyd — you know, all the rioting, looting, and killing people — many individuals were offended by the fact that a black slave was kneeling before Lincoln.

Things got so intense over this that the National Guard was called in to place barriers around the version of the statue in Washington.

Another bit of irony is that the original statue was actually paid for with money that was donated by freed slaves. Archer Alexander, a slave who fled from captivity and served in the Union, was the model for the statue.

According to a Fox News report, the Biden admin. has released more than 600,000 illegal aliens into the U.S. since he took office.

For a comparison, it appears that Joe Biden has released more illegals than the population of two U.S. states. Wyoming only has 578,759 citizens, and Vermont has 623,989.

Last week, Sen. Ron Jonson said that Biden’s administration is flat out lying about the numbers of illegals that are streaming into the U.S. Johnson said that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas lied about how many of the 1.3 million illegals that have streamed across the border since January have been deported back to their home countries.

”You know, I gave him questions for the record, which he didn’t respond to. And so, you’re coming into hearings yesterday in the Senate, today in the House, you’ve got to know that you’re going to be asked that question,” Johnson told Newsmax on Sept. 22. ”How could you not come prepared with that basic information?”

”They know the number,” Johnson added. ”They don’t want the American people [to] know the number, because the American people would be shocked. During his last appearance, I just did the back of an envelope count, calculation. I figured, probably about 600,000 people will be dispersed all over this country this year.”

”And again, that’s while they still have the Title 42 powers in place to return a lot of those individuals. So, 600,000 people. That’s a number larger than the population of Wyoming. And so they don’t want people to know that because there’s still denying that this is a crisis,” the Sen. said.

Joe Biden Claims ‘Trillionaires’ Aren’t Paying Enough Taxes, But there Are No U.S. Trillionaires

Joe Biden attacked American “trillionaires” on Friday even though there aren’t any U.S. trillionaires in the first place.

Joe Biden attacked American “trillionaires” on Friday who he says aren’t paying enough taxes, but — fact check, Joe — there aren’t any U.S. trillionaires in the first place.

“I’m running to change the dynamic of how the economy grows,” Biden said during a presser. “I’m tired of trickle-down. Trillionaires and billionaires are doing very, very well. You all report it.”

It is also unclear what Joe thinks he’s “running” for, unless he has forgotten that he has been crowed president of the United States.

Aside from that, though, even America’s richest person, Amazon chief Jeff Bezos, is a mere multi-billionaire with a net worth of $177 billion, according to Forbes magazine.

Per Breitbart News:

The president spoke about raising taxes on the wealthy after an event promoting coronavirus vaccine booster shots at the White House.

He claimed his policies for a permanent childcare tax credit were not costing the government any money.

“It’s not,” Biden said. “It’s reducing taxes, reducing taxes, not increasing taxes.”

He again pressed the issue of taxes as a moral issue, noting corporations were not paying enough.

“I just think it’s about just paying your fair share,’ he said, adding that it was “just wrong.”

Apparently, Biden doesn’t know who earns what in the U.S. Indeed, his plan would be just another broken campaign promise because it raises taxes on people making under $400,000 a year, something he said he would not do.
