Okay, it just needs to be said at this point: radical liberal know-nothings hate statues. It doesn’t even matter what the statue represents, as evidenced by the torching of a 120-year-old elk and graffiti painted on the side of a “racist” mermaid.

Statues are the enemy, that could not be more clear.

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.

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.

Douglass, a former slave, delivered the speech to the Ladies’ Anti-Slavery Society at Corinthian Hall in downtown Rochester. He told the listeners there and beyond that the country could not lay claim to the purest of ideals while willingly enslaving and oppressing its black citizens.

Bloomberg Buys Last-Minute Political Ads On Behalf Of Joe Biden In Texas And Ohio

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who just so happened to run the country’s most expensive failed presidential campaign in history, is now apparently blowing through a wad of cash in a last-minute attempt to buy some political ads on behalf of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The ads have been purchased in key states that are known strongholds for Republicans, Ohio and Texas. Via Daily Wire: The last-minute advertising amounts to $15 million – a fraction of what Bloomberg is spending in Florida to support Biden – and represents internal polling suggesting President Donald Trump is vulnerable in the two states, The New York Times reported. “Howard Wolfson, one of Mr. Bloomberg’s closest aides, said the former mayor had recently asked his team to run a round of polls to see whether Mr. Trump had unexpected vulnerabilities that could be exploited in the campaign’s closing weeks. Up to this point, Mr. Bloomberg’s general-election activities have focused on Florida, where he has pledged to spend $100 million supporting Mr. Biden,” the outlet reported. “The Bloomberg team conducted polling in a number of states over the weekend and came away convinced that Texas and Ohio represented its best targets — narrowly divided electoral prizes where the war for television airtime is not already cluttered with heavy advertising on either side. The team presented Mr. Bloomberg with the numbers on Monday morning and he gave the go-ahead.” “We believe that Florida will go down to the wire, and we were looking for additional opportunities to expand the map,” Wolfson told the outlet. “Texas and Ohio present the best opportunities to do that, in our view.” The big focus of the campaign ads being put out by Bloomberg will be the president’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ads running in Texas will…

Well, it seems that we’re about to hit another round of rioting and looting by the Black Lives Matter movement — don’t worry folks, it’s all just tools to fight against oppression — this time taking place in the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. A 27-year-old black man was shot and killed during an altercation with police officers earlier in the day, which is the latest inspiration cited by these angry “protesters” for the justification for their lawlessness. via Fox News: Walter Wallace, who was allegedly holding a knife, was fatally shot while two police officers were responding to a complaint about a man with a weapon in Cobbs Creek, according to the Associated Press. He “advanced toward” the officers, who then fired “several times,” the outlet reported. Wallace was hit in both the shoulder and chest, then taken in a police vehicle to a hospital, where he died. https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1320953991170125826 Following Wallace’s death, which was recorded and posted on social media, hundreds of people — some armed with bricks — protested in the 52nd Street commercial district, and the demonstration quickly turned violent. Police cars and dumpsters were set ablaze and NBC10 Philadelphia reported that at least 30 police officers were hurt. A 56-year-old sergeant was hit by a truck and sent to the hospital with a broken leg and other injuries. Some of the stores that were hit with looting included several Rite Aid pharmacies, a restaurant, and some clothing and shoe shops. Two ATM machines have also been reported to have been smashed. A total of 30 people were arrested during the incident. Folks, if Joe Biden is elected president and the left takes over Congress, this scene right here will become common place. How do I know that? Because the left will do nothing to stop the rioting and looting…
